How to Cultivate a Healthy Relationship With Your Salary

How to Cultivate a Healthy Relationship With Your Salary

September is finally here, fall is coming, and that means that we have a new theme on The Stress Less Show! This month, we are focusing on one of the top stressors in the US for women - and it’s a big one! We are talking all about job security. Feeling secure in our jobs is a major concern for both men and us women and a lot of that has to do with everyone’s favorite thing to talk about - money and salary.

Getting paid what we are worth and having enough money to provide for ourselves and our families can be an overwhelming challenge at times, leading us to work ourselves way past our breaking point. We have that fear in the back of our minds reminding us of all of our student loans, credit card debt, car payments, the list goes on. The cycle of earning money and spending it all never seems to end.

That is why I brought on Executive Coach, Erin Owen, to discuss our mindset around the money and salary we make, and the opportunities we have in our careers…

How to Stay in Recovery from Addiction

How to Stay in Recovery from Addiction

To say that facing addiction can be stressful is a major understatement. Recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol often stirs up fear, shame, guilt, anxiety, the list goes on. It takes a lot of strength to admit that we are struggling and seek help from a recovery program or expert, but that is only half the battle. When we leave a recovery program, the question that must be faced is: what comes next? Fortunately, recovery coach Mie Potter of Finding Peace came on to this week’s episode of The Stress Less Show to discuss how we can stick to our recovery even after leaving a rehabilitation program…

How to Tap Into the Power of Lucid Dreaming

How to Tap Into the Power of Lucid Dreaming

Dreams are mysterious things. They can be funny, embarrassing, heartbreaking, and even terrifying; but how many of us really understand what is really going on with our dreams? We have been talking about physical heath on The Stress Less Show this month and getting enough sleep is a huge part of taking care of our health. However, sometimes our dreams get in the way of our ability to get a full night’s rest. The fear, worry and maybe even trauma from our waking life seeps into our subconscious and manifests in night terrors and nightmares. That is why I brought on the creator of the app Dream Catcher, Evan Stites-Clayton, to share how lucid dreaming can be a powerful tool we can put in our toolbox to deal with our dreams and nightmares…

How to Stop Emotional Eating and Heal Your Relationship with Food

How to Stop Emotional Eating and Heal Your Relationship with Food

How many of us have done this: we just got home from the WORST day ever. Our boss screamed at us again, we were late to everything, and by the time we get home, the only thing we can think about doing is plunging face-first into a huge tub of ice cream and whatever else we have in our kitchens. We all have those comfort foods we love to turn to when we aren’t feeling great. However, while it may make you feel good for a moment, food is not going to make all that stress go away. This week on The Stress Less Show, we are talking about food and emotional eating - a huge issue for so many of us out there. I brought Jessica Procini, founder of Escape From Emotional Eating, on the show to help us learn how to stop using food as a way to cope with our stress…

How to Find Yourself

How to Find Yourself

You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. How many times have we all heard that before? It may be a cliche but truly knowing yourself and accepting who you are is a critical part of a healthy relationship. This month on The Stress Less Show, we’ve been talking all about relationships and this week’s episode was all about the most important relationship we have in our lives - the one we have with ourselves - because the relationship we have with ourselves affects everything else we do.

That is why I brought on Personal coach and orgasmic meditation trainer, Sofia Lloyd, to help us work on our relationship with ourselves by giving us tips on finding ourselves when we are feeling out of touch with what we want and need…

How to Stop Criticizing Your Partner

How to Stop Criticizing Your Partner

Criticism - it is one of the top killers of relationships everywhere. How many of us have stories of really horrible fights with partners because they criticized our work or we criticized the way they clean the bathroom. While it is important to express ourselves in a relationship, harsh criticism can really hurt and cause a major strain on our relationship. Since relationships are such a stressor for us women, I brought certified confidence and relationship coach, Alex Streisand, back on The Stress Less Show to talk all about this relationship killer…

How to Strengthen Your Relationship Through Appreciation

How to Strengthen Your Relationship Through Appreciation

It’s always about the little things. How many times have we come home from a long day at work or spent all day cleaning the house and taking the kids to and from school and playdates, just for our partners to barely bat an eye? A major breaking point in relationships often arises when we feel like our partner is taking us for granted and not appreciating our value. We want to be valued for the work and time we put into our responsibilities and relationships, yet so many of us aren’t getting that and we don’t know why. Since this month’s theme on The Stress Less Show is all about relationships - one of the top stressors in America for women - I brought on Certified Relationship and Confidence Coach, Alex Streisand, to talk all about appreciation in relationships…

How to Prevent Money From Affecting Your Relationship

How to Prevent Money From Affecting Your Relationship

I’m no relationship expert, but I’m willing to bet that money has probably broken up a lot more marriages and relationships than any of us would care to admit. No one likes having those money conversations, but when we are in a serious relationship, talking finances starts to become the giant green elephant in the room that we can’t keep avoiding. This month, our topic on The Stress Less Show is Relationships - one of the top stressors in America for women - and we really can’t talk about addressing stress in our relationships without talking about combining finances. So, this week, I brought financial expert, Kristy Runzer, to talk more about the process of addressing money in our relationships…

How to Regain Control of Your Household Chores

How to Regain Control of Your Household Chores

Laundry, taking out the trash, loading the dishwasher - what do these things have in common? They all have the tendency to drive us crazy! Taking care of chores around our homes can be one of those persistent stressors. They have to be done repeatedly and when we have a million other things to take care of at work and in our lives, it can be easy to put off cleaning the house for one day...or two or twenty. The longer we keep pushing off our household chores, the more difficult they become and we then have to spend an entire day buried in dirty clothes and dishes. It happens to all of us, which is why this week on the Stress Less Show, I brought on organizational expert, Sarah Grace of Embrace Your Space NYC, to talk all about household chores…

How to Cope with the Stress of Caregiving

How to Cope with the Stress of Caregiving

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that getting older is filled with a lot of stress. When we are kids, our parents and parental figures often act as our protectors from the day to day stresses and responsibilities that are now commonplace in our lives - bills, work, insurance, you name it. Our parents take care of us, so we can feel free to explore and learn about the world. However, one thing that we don’t always like to talk about getting older is the stress that comes from having to become caregivers in life, for our aging parents, chronically ill loved ones, and more. It can be overwhelming to manage caregiving responsibilities with our own daily lives, and it inevitably affects everyone at some point as time goes on. That is why this week on The Stress Less Show, we are talking about how to manage the stress that comes with caregiving…

How to Manage the Stress in Your Relationship With Your Kids

How to Manage the Stress in Your Relationship With Your Kids

It’s that time of year! June is here, the weather is heating up, and that means school is out for the summer! We all love summer vacations and quality family time, but let’s face it, no one knows how to push our buttons more than our family. Between kids being at home more often and planning trips and beach days with the family, the summer can mean sun and stress for a lot of us. That is why this month on The Stress Less Show, our theme is all about family obligations. To start us off this week, I brought parent and teen coach, Tracey Lukes, on the show to talk about managing stress in our relationships with our kids.

Tracey’s work as a parent and teen coach…

How to Navigate Organizational Changes

How to Navigate Organizational Changes

Organizational changes - these two words are very common in corporate America and for a lot of people, they come with a lot of stress, fear, and panic attached to them. Changes in your organization can result in layoffs, demotions, promotions, relocations, you name it! All of those possibilities have their own challenges attached to them so it is only natural that you might be overwhelmed by just the thought of a reorganization at work. Because this month on The Stress Less Show has been all about managing job pressure, I decided to bring on leadership and talent development expert, Sarah Noll Wilson…

How To Reduce Your Heavy Workload

How To Reduce Your Heavy Workload

Busy is the new status symbol - how many of us can relate to that idea? We talked a little bit about the dangers of busy culture last week on the Stress Less Show, but there is a lot more to unpack here if we are going to start letting go of the pressure we put on ourselves at work. Ensuring that you are working a reasonable amount of hours is a great step, but I know what you are probably thinking: How can I cut back on the hours I work when I have so much work to get done?? Managing a heavy workload is tough, and so this week I brought freelance digital marketing strategist, Sarah DeGeorge, on the show to share some of her tips for dealing with a heavy workload…

How To Stop Working Long Hours

How To Stop Working Long Hours

Hello May! It is mental health awareness month and on the Stress Less Show this month, we are talking about one of the top stressors for people in the United States.

How to Take the Steps to Financial Freedom

How to Take the Steps to Financial Freedom

We have spent the past three weeks on The Stress-Less Show talking about how to manage your debt, budget and money mindset because let’s face it, money can be a touchy subject for a lot of us. We all wish we could live a life where money was not something that we had to worry about all the time. That’s why I brought on money expert Kristy Runzer of OnRoute Financial to share some tips on how to start working towards financial freedom…

How to Start and Stick to Budgeting

How to Start and Stick to Budgeting

This week on the Stress-Less Show, we are talking about Budgeting. I know, your head may still be spinning from all the numbers you spent pouring over on tax day, but now is a perfect time to start crafting a budget that you can stick to so that tax season is a little less stressful. Money Mindset Expert and Certified CPA, Mala Dukhi of Wise Women Smart Money, is back on the show to talk all about how and why to start budgeting.

Let’s be honest: Budgeting is not most people’s idea of a good time. It requires taking a look at your bank accounts and debts and unfortunately, that makes it really easy for most of us to just avoid altogether. Mala noted that “Most people that I've talked to avoid looking at their numbers and the more you avoid the more anxiety and stress you're going to have. So…

How to Shift Your Money Mindset

How to Shift Your Money Mindset

Did you know that 79% percent of women surveyed listed money as a top stressor for them? That’s a lot of us women worrying about the same thing! I know from personal experience and from talking with clients and friends that we all have some form of anxiety or worry at money at some point in our lives. That’s why this month on The Stress-Less Show, we are going to be talking about all things money so that you can start to manage your money stress - instead of it managing you!

Since this month is all about money, I decided to bring my friend and money mindset expert Mala Dukhi of Wise Women Smart Money to share her tools for transforming the way we think about money and feeling more in control of the way we feel about our financial situation. She had so many great ideas for changing your money mindset and my favorite tip that she shared is…

What Sets You Apart From the Rest? [The Stress-Less Career Show - Episode 7]

Oh my goodness, I am so grateful that we've made it to episode seven of The Stress-Less Career Show! Last week, we had a great conversation with personal stylist, Susan Padron.
