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 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 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.

How to Cope with Tight Deadlines

How to Cope with Tight Deadlines

We’ve all been in this situation. You show up to work and your boss hands you 3 painstakingly time-consuming projects that all have to be somehow finished by tomorrow. The month of May has been all about the stress of Job Pressure on The Stress Less Show, and there is nothing quite as stressful as facing a tight deadline at work. It can feel impossible to know how to deal with the stress of tight deadlines in a healthy way, and no unfortunately, snacking nervously does not count as dealing. That is why I brought Rachel Sheerin, international keynote speaker and Certified Behavioral Analyst, on this week’s episode to talk about her own story dealing with tight deadlines…

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 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…
