Hi Everyone!!A new season is upon us, including Jewish Holidays and  December Holidays in a blink.  Holidays are  double edged- wonderful and stressful for most peopleThere’s still time to make 2016 your best year yet!  You can accomplish all you set out to do, including the challenges below:

  • Discover and release your full purpose and life potential!
  • Identify what’s holding you back and how to turn it around to reach your goals.
  • Learn tools, techniques & strategies to achieve more results in less time.
  • Find out how to attract, work with, motivate and live harmoniously with different style communicators and personalities

without pressing their “hot buttons”.

  • Let go, let be, forgive and be thankful for more than you ever imagined is possible!~

Great news is you can re-wire – re-pattern yourself to eliminate old habits and create new ones.  You only need twenty-one days of positive repetition to form a new pattern/habit!  It helps to be accountable to someone and to “tap on it” (EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques).  Actually, it’s been said you can “tap on anything”.  I was skeptical myself at first, and then saw incredible results during the trainings I took to become a certified practitioner and incorporate the modality into coaching sessions.  Give it a try to unleash your inner power and full potential!

It’s usually difficult for business owners, no matter what generation, than non-business owners to achieve life-balance and work-life integration, which are dependent on effective time and stress management skills, as well as great communication with employees and with family and friends. Adding in the caregiver component can be cause for a personal tipping point into the realms of anger or suppressed feelings often leading to depression.

Therefore, it’s important for caregivers who are also business owners to be especially mindful of time constraints and communications with office workers and family members, not allowing frustrations often caused by caregiving  affect work or home relationships and productivity.

Integrating work and life works efficiently with fast paced technology, especially for millennials who are adapting well to this reality.  The phrase “work-life integration” is blending what you do professionally and personally in order to make both happen. The trending shift (away from work life flexibility and balance) has happened as fast as the development and speed of technology.  Some may be finding it difficult to step away from the work-life balance they have worked so hard to attain.

There are several reasons why mastering work-life integration is so essential right now, as well as maintaining personal balance- the kind where you can stand on one foot and not fall down! The balance need not be equal pieces of “the wheel of life” .

 

Compromises can be made without sabotaging wellbeing, happy family life and relationships.  Keeping a flexible calendar and writing in exercise-gym time, family time etc. can be helpful in the juggling and maintaining balance.  Taking meaningful time away from work, whether it be a few hours a day, a weekend or a few days and more vacation can be wonderfully recharging.  Below are a few reasons work-life integration or a variation of it is necessary:

  1. A recent study by the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) found that more than 50% of workers say that work conflicts with life responsibilities at least two or three times per week. Due to this, about 40% of women have delayed having children.  Many have separate phones for business
  2.  Working remotely is easier than ever! However, this can make it more difficult to separate work and life, creating a natural integration.

 

It’s important to honor your own bio-rhythms so that you do work when you believe you can perform the best and do personal activities to break up your day.  This is one way you can integrate work and life so that you remain sane and are able to accomplish (almost) everything you want to do from a personal and professional perspective. Taking “joy” and exercise-stretch breaks throughout the day clears your mind, stretches muscles and ups the endorphins (feeling good hormones) and creativity factor.

Keeping a flexible calendar and scheduling things like going to the gym, writing articles, reading, meetings, research at around the same time each day can be helpful to get into habits and have more control over what you’re doing and when.   

Whether the problem is too much focus on work or too little, when your work life and your personal life – including caregiving and maybe sandwich generation caregiving – feel out of balance, often times stress, along with its harmful effects, is the result. The good news is that most can take control of stress levels by giving yourself the time to do the things that are most important to you.  When life literally is beginning to feel “out of control” or “lopsided” and you feel off kilter, give yourself the gift of time to restore balance.  Consider disconnecting as much as necessary for stress reduction and the restoration of balance in addition to tips below:

Get plenty of rest. Try to get the requisite eight hours every night. If you’re short on sleep because your caregiver duties require you to be up and down during the night, take naps the following day when your loved one is sleeping –if possible- or spend shorter periods in meditation.

Exercise regularly.  Regular exercise will give you more energy, reduce your stress, and elevate your mood.   Aim for 30-60 minutes of exercise four to six times a week; even a walk around the block will help clear your mind and keep you more fit. If you can work in some strength training twice a week, that will help keep your bones firm and your muscles strong

Relax. Do relaxation exercises–such as deep breathing or meditating–to reduce caregiver and business stress. If possible, set aside a few minutes at the beginning and end of your day to practice these techniques.

Consciously relaxing in this way will help you enter the day more calmly, and make it easier for you to sleep at night. You can also do deep breathing now and then throughout the day to help keep your stress under control.

  • Take time for yourself! Stop being a caregiver once or twice a week for a day – or part of a day –  and take some time for yourself. If you do, you’ll be happier and better able to care for your loved one(s), and be more productive and focused at work!

When you are living with a spouse or partner, keep in mind that when a couple makes special efforts to care for each other, caregiving doesn’t have to be as much of a burden–and may even make your relationship stronger!

Support, understanding and inspiration received from a spouse and others close to you while caring for an aging parent can help cope with both the pressures and demands of caregiving and household chores and duties.  In business and at home, delegate when possible, and always remember to

say “Thank you!” and Be Grateful!

The one most important piece of advice I have to give is this: Do not take something negative that someone says personally- it may be true – or perhaps it is simply the individual’s distorted perception. We are each quite capable of creative interpretations – of cognitive distortions. You may be asking- what exactly is that?? Cognitive distortions are exaggerated and irrational thoughts that can hold us back from our true potential. There are many recognized cognitive distortions that are helpful to be familiar with – so you can turn yourself around and also recognize when others are on that path. This is helpful in ‘not taking things personally,’ and puts you in the position to share your recognition of that with the one experiencing it.

Here they are:

1. All or Nothing Thinking: You see things in extreme, ‘black or white’ categories. If your performance falls short of 100% you see yourself as a total failure. Any mistake or imperfection is feared as being a loser! Example: Actor who considers a performance a disaster because of one critic.

2. Overgeneralization: You see a single negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat. Example: You go for a job interview and don’t get the offer- you fear lifelong unemployment. Pain of rejection can easily lead to over generalization.

3. Mental Filter: You pick out a single negative detail and dwell on it exclusively, thus perceiving the whole situation as negative. Example: Student dwells on questions he missed even if he got a 90!

4. Disqualifying the Positive: You reject positive experiences by insisting they ‘don’t count’ for some reason or another. In this way, you can maintain a negative belief that is contradicted by your every day experiences. Example: You get a compliment- you turn around and say the person giving it isn’t sincere.

5. Jumping to Conclusions: You make a negative interpretation even without definite facts that convincingly support your conclusion.

a. Mind Reading: You arbitrarily conclude that someone is reacting negatively to you, and you don’t bother to check this out. Example: You leave a message for someone who doesn’t return your call. You assume they don’t like you.

b. Fortune Teller: Anticipation that things will turn out badly, and feeling convinced that the prediction is an already established fact. When you do this, you plan to fail. The opposite of this is positive attitude, seeing the glass at least ‘half full’.

6. Magnification or Minimization: You exaggerate the importance of things (such as your ‘goofup’ or someone else’s achievement) or you inappropriately shrink things until they appear tiny (your own desirable qualities or another’s imperfections). This is called the ‘binocular trick’. Examplemissing a question in medical school and thinking that you shouldn’t be a doctor!

7. Emotional Reasoning: You assume that your negative emotions necessarily reflect reality: ‘I feel it, therefore it must be true.’

8. ‘Should ‘ Statement: You try to motivate yourself with should and ‘shouldn’t as if you had to be punished before you could be expected to do anything. The same with ‘must’ and ‘ought’. The emotional consequence is guilt. When you direct. ‘should’ statements towards others you feel anger, resentment, frustration. Example: I should fill out my progress sheet for class vs. I want to fill out my progress sheet for class.

9. Labeling and Mislabeling: This is an extreme form of overgeneralization. Instead of describing an error, you attach a negative label to yourself: “I’m a loser.” When someone else’s behavior rubs you the wrong way, you attach a negative label to him/her: “He’s an idiot.” Mislabeling describes an event or person in ways that are emotionally loaded.

10. Personalization: You see yourself as the cause of some external negative event for which, in fact, you were not primarily responsible.

11. What If’s: You can become extremely anxious over the possibilities of what might happen of which you can’t control. We need to work on things we can do something about and not become a prisoner of what we cannot control.

Taking advantage of when your brain is prepared to give you the best ideas is something successful people have been doing for hundreds of years.  Great thinkers have understood that the early “nodding off” stage of sleep, when theta waves predominate in the brain, is the best time to let the creative juices flow as well as while awakening before  getting out of bed  and doing stuff. Running through the day’s challenges early in the morning while you are still in this state (or even at night as you start to fall asleep) can yield amazing results! Theta waves are present during these times -and it takes takes some practice do do this easily and be in the positive habit that may take your productivity to new levels!!

Just as you start to become conscious in the morning, but while your eyes are closed and your brain’s still dreamy, think of the most immediate problem or task you have to face this day. Maybe it’s having a tricky conversation, writing a report, or creating a new marketing campaign. Choose only one and let the brain ruminate.If it morning, quickly record key words or write in smart phone. At night,use  pen and paper to quickly record your ideas, so that the electronic light doesn’t disturb your sleep.

Happy problem solving!

When you practice deep meditation theta waves are involved as well. I help clients learn meditation and they are accountable to me as their coach.
