Want warm glows and feelings of happiness?  Try the power of giving!

 Research supports that the power of giving makes people feel good and that those who spend more of their income on others are happier than people who spend more on themselves.  Research from neuroscience suggests these people aren’t just saying their generosity feels good because they think they’re supposed to. Instead, studies have shown that the psychological rewards of kindness are reflected in the neural circuitry of the brain.

No study has directly measured brain activity in people who spend on others vs. those who spend on themselves. Charitable giving makes  the  “feel-good” parts of people’s brains light up in studies, particularly when the giving was totally voluntary, like feeling a  “warm glow,” that pleasant feeling we get from doing something nice for someone else.

Giving also triggered activity in the parts of the brain which are known to light up when we think about moral issues.

 Researchers also found that when participants made their charitable donations, the activity in these “moral processing” areas of the brain was greater among people who volunteered more in real life!

About Eileen:
I’ve overcome obstacles in areas of my life… After battling colitis for many years, I found a holistic approach to healing myself that worked wonderfully together with my medical care. My participation in modalities incorporating positive thinking, affirmations, relaxation breathing, exercise and stretching were instrumental to my conquering colitis and became part of my Moving Meditation® Fitness audio program.

16 years ago, I was involved in a pedestrian accident in which my right foot was run over by a van, which left me with five breaks in a bone in my foot. During my recovery I was asked by a local physician to help write a curriculum for a new stress-reduction program he was developing. He encouraged me to read John Kabot-Zinn’s Full Catastrophe Living” and Herbert Benson’s “The Relaxation Response”, which turned my negative attitude towards recovery around and were catalysts to my healing and I was able to teach Hatha yoga for this course within a few months.

I was dealing with a severely broken foot, which had huge amounts of tissue damage. During this time of healing, with my prognosis unknown,I decided to become a trained bio-feedback therapist as well as work in that field in order to have career “back-up” because of my unknown prognosis.

The mind-body connection, the autogenic and relaxation training plus counseling techniques contributed significantly to my own healing; a powerful reinforcement of the power of the mind-body connection. I was also greatly impacted during this time by professional training at the Omega Institute with Dr. Kabat-Zinn, who founded the Center for Mindfulness Based Stress-Reduction Programs at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. The training was pivotal in integrating all the work I was doing and clarified my goal to be trained as a professional coach. I then went on to the Corporate Coach University, a branch of Coach U and recognized by the International Coach Federation.

Since then I have been and continue to be inspired by the impact people can have on their lives when they choose to manage and reduce stress. I am honored to be a part of that process in anyway that I can.

Peak Performance Success Life Coaching and Career Coaching Gift Certificates

A great gift for anyone on your list! A one hour phone or Skype session, in person in Westbury, Long Island or on your site.

Life balance challenges resonate with everyone. Most of us find the “hurried life syndrome” difficult to manage. Time management frustrations, including finding time for yourself, using it to your best advantage and procrastination are high on the scale.  Is your time cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?   You can claim your power in the midst of chaos and movement by carrying your stillness with you…and you will make right choices, have enough time to make the important things happen, and be emotionally available to others.balanceandpower

Antidotes to the “Hurried Life Syndrome”:

  • Cultivate a “big picture”, even if it’s a work in progress.
  • Combine tasks.
  • Be able to shift priorities.
  • Allow more time than you think is necessary for everyone and everything!
  • Say “no” without guilt.  Designate tasks and responsibilities.
  • Exercise, eat well and get enough sleep.
  • Practice relaxation exercises.
  • Be positive and bring intention to your actions.
  • Listen to your intuition, trust the choices you make..you’re usually right!
  • Take time to play, laugh and love!
