To all my friends recently touched by destruction and dire circumstances, as our collective prayers, thoughts and actions aid recovery from Superstorm Sandy, and to all of my friends not in the New York Metro area, let’s remember we can always accelerate resilience in spirit with these simple steps:
• Set specific goals that are attainable. Take baby steps to get there when necessary.
• When you are feeling down due to personal circumstances, take stock of your strengths and positive circumstances and BE GRATEFUL!!
• Surround yourself with positive people as much as possible.
• Do not read, watch or listen to the news if you become “too upset”.
You are the only one who can control your attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing potential, you can take calculated risks and overcome challenges .
It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities.
They are out there ready to be accessed by your positive and resilient radar!!

Horror stories, boats in houses, boardwalks in front yards, no power means no heat too; it’s cold in NY now. I’m booting up in nearby town of Rockville Centre that has the business district hopping with electric. A sense of community, repair, boredom, hopelessness and overwhelm for some. Homelessness, shelters and evacuations are no fun. Uprooted and possessions gone- a lot of that on Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, downtown Manhattan, Staten Island & New Jersey. So, if you’re simply bored with no power, no work happening and have your stuff and your peeps-well then- let’s have big gratefulness positive energy happening. You’ve got you!! And that’s a lot. Here’s a few things to do:
Light some candles and meditate- become one with a flame for a few minutes!
Visit someone by bicycle (save gasoline, which is a additional problem now)
Read a book(s)
Clean out some shelves
Have a post hurricane party!
Still no power in my home; I’m at Panera’s RVC now.
We’re fortunate to have hot water, stove top and my neighbor’s generator hooked to the fridge a few hours a day.

The Zen philosophy of being detached from outcome may be difficult to attain when you have very real goals.
The next best thing can be change your expectations – or perhaps your perspective!
- A full week getaway on a tropical beach is not looking possible, so rethink it to 2 weekends away at a lovely local resort
- Working out five days a week isn’t happening. Three days a week with a good buddy is entirely possible!
- Repainting the kitchen by the end ofthe month.: Possible; hire someone!
- Posting three times a day on all social media while moving forward on projects. Not possible. Get real help or an app that helps.
- Lose ten pounds this month. How about five?
- Hire a coach and/or enroll in an online course to up productivity. Doable! Just do it:):

The Mayo Clinic Staff reports that researchers are claiming that, in addition to improving your spiritual health, forgiveness may have benefits for your physical health, too. This is definitely something that warrants our attention! It is being said that “letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for compassion, kindness and peace, and that forgiveness can lead to:
- Healthier relationships
- Greater spiritual and psychological well-being
- Less anxiety, stress and hostility
- Lower blood pressure
- Fewer symptoms of depression
- Lower risk of alcohol and substance abuse”
Well, this helps explain the statement I’ve heard and read again and again that if you experience a high level of gratitude you cannot be depressed. This makes sense since depression is anger suppressed. Imagine a line with frustration in the middle. It can go either way- one end is depression(extremely suppressed anger) and the other is a high anger level – often in an inappropriate, aggressive way.
What about “unforgiveness” as a health risk, then?
The University of Maryland School of Medicine is researching the connection between anger and ”unforgiveness”. Anger is a component of unforgiveness and anger is a health risk. Then is unforgiveness a health risk as well? Included in the research are studies with aids patients. Knowing more about the nature and course of anger expression in the context of unforgiveness will ultimately help define and clarify this area of research.
Now I’ll share a few important points that can be helpful in letting go of anger- something I’ve learned as an Advanced EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Certified Practitioner in a training I attended and has been reinforced in trainings to facilitate Anger Management.
- As the victim, it’s OK to forgive only a small percent.
- Perhaps the other’s behavior was impacted by a chemical/emotional imbalance
- *** The other was doing what he/she knew how to do – perhaps learned – no matter.
- It’s possible that the action was not meant “personally” – it was simply an “M.O.”
- It’s impossible to change another person’s way of dealing; only your own.
If you or someone you love gets help with managing anger and/or letting it go as a victim, then stress is automatically addressed and therefore health will improve too!
Balance & Power, Inc. has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades, corporately and in the educational and private sectors, and is now facilitating Workplace Bullying Prevention trainings.
Bullying in the workplace, the schools and at home has reached epidemic proportions – it is our goal to help eliminate these type of situations. Eileen Lichtenstein, CEO, believes inner strength and being centered are keys to optimal productivity and happiness. She is a Certified Anger Management Specialist, accepted by the US courts, a former Biofeedback Practitioner and faculty member at HofstraUniversity. Her office is in Wantgh, NY, the telephone, Video Skype or on your site.

- Do You Have Enough Fun?

Do you have enough fun and play?
I’m not talking about video games- or sex. When you play tennis, golf, scrabble, bike, walk, ball, surf are you having fun? Are you smiling and laughing along with laser focus or perhaps no thoughts at all?
Give yourself permission to have fun. It’s healthy, and well, yeah, fun!
Access your inner child and see what happens! Being happier is always an asset.
Do you know what frees you? It’s dancing for me. I’ve come to peace with physical modifications for myself in dancing and exercising. Additionally, I’ve placed the concept of “dancing” into an intellectual-emotional realm of possibility: creativity for the soul. I encourage you to take time to pursue your fun passion and create new possibilities.
There is no such thing as having “life balance” or “work-life balance” all the time.
There are, however, individual tolerations if the balance is tipped too far.
Be smart- stay in balance most of the time! This will keep you healthy and less stressed.
If you are experiencing stress, frustration or insecurity due to challenges you are currently facing, contact me for a complimentary consult/strategy session: 516 623 4353 www.balanceandpower.com
Here are some quick and easy suggestions to reduce stress right now:
- Pay attention to your body, feelings, thoughts and intuitive self
- Acknowledge personal stress cues and symptoms
- Recognize your tolerance
- Pause! Breathe! Detach! Relax! Take a mini-vacation!
- Change your internal environment
- Connect with Nature
- Physically release and focus: dance, walk, yoga, work-out, etc.
- Conduct internal “traffic control” several times a day
- Meditate and center yourself
- Embrace your personal power and spiritual connection
