As a normal part of life, stress enables us to get things done. If left unmanaged, stress can lead to emotional, psychological, and even physical problems. Stress causes a disruption in the flow of vital energy through the body. These energetic imbalances can throw off the immune system or cause symptoms of pain, sleep disturbances, abnormal digestion, headaches, menstrual irregularities, aggravation of already troublesome health conditions and, over time, more serious illnesses can develop.

Stress is cumulative.  Stressful situations that last over a long period of time can create an ongoing low-level stress that puts continual pressure on the nervous system, increasing activity, and can cause the overproduction of hormones. The extra stress hormones over an extended period of time may wear out the body’s reserves, lead to fatigue, depression, a weakened immune system, and a host of serious physical and psychological ailments.

Some signs of stress overload include:

– anxiety or panic attacks
– feelings of constant pressure, hassled and hurried
– irritability and moodiness
– physical symptoms such as stomach problems, headaches, or even chest pain
– allergic reactions, such as eczema or asthma
– problems sleeping
– overindulgence in food, alcohol, smoking, or drugs
– sadness or depression

increased anger and impatience

Stress is often the cause of illness and the deterioration of health. Finding a release valve for your stress can help you stay healthy. According to research, stress, frustration, and unresolved anger can play an important part in throwing the immune system off and allowing pathogens to affect the body.

While it isn’t always possible to remove the external forces causing stress, the ability to effectively deal with stress is a choice. Take time for yourself to cultivate the energy you need to handle your stress more skillfully and effectively.

EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, is often described as the tapping technique and is a powerful stress reduction tool that is proving to be extremely effective in a wide variety of conditions in which stress can be a causative or aggravating factor.

Research continues to expand its evidence of effectiveness for conditions as anxiety, PTSD, phobias, suppression of cravings and more. EFT is an approach that incorporates multiples aspects of the mind and body through the stimulation of the meridian energy system that has been utilized in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for thousands of years.


Some of the benefits that EFT deals with include:


Typically, EFT is facilitated with a practitioner for several sessions, while the individual is tapping on their own every day. EFT is especially effective when integrated with Peak Performance Success Coaching.  Clients are successfully guided to release fear and completely reverse phobias and pursue positive action!

Yes, the phrase “disconnect to reconnect” has two distinct definitions and perhaps more…

Literally, it has to to with not beeing connected to devices or computer for a period of time daily – or for several days – weeks depending on your circumstances.

Another definition, recently pointed out to me by a coaching client, is to release all toxic people and past negativity-shame from your life to reconnect with your joyful, peaceful inner self-child and be mindful/present in each waking moment.

Certain strengths are most closely linked to happiness. They include gratitude, hope, vitality, curiosity, and love. These strengths are so important that they’re worth cultivating and help you weather the ups and downs of life and also build resilience for times of greater difficulty.

 Specifically in a down economy it’s important to stay with the grateful piece. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what you have—from a roof over your head to good health to people who care about you. When you acknowledge the goodness in your life, you begin to recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside yourself. In this way, gratitude helps you connect to something larger than your individual experience — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

 Do you know that people who are grateful cannot be depressed! Here are a few things to do to harness gratefulness and to stay centered , another necessary ingredient for being happy:

● Set aside a few minutes every day and think about five large or small things you’re

grateful for. Write them down if you like. Be specific and remember what each thing

means to you. Review them before going to sleep and on awakening.

● Take “grateful walks” in nature, noticing all the wonders. Create a grateful mantra

for yourself to repeat as you walk-breathe. ie: inhale love 4 steps, exhale self doubt

4 steps. Inhale confidence, exhale fear.  

Achieving maximum physical, emotional and spiritual health through relaxation breathing, movement, visualization/positive imagery and meditation.
A Fitness and Relaxation Program greatly impacts achievement of one’s personal and professional objectives. This program is available on mp3.   More Information 

● Throughout the day take short breaks, conduct internal traffic control: check in how

are you doing emotionally-physically and stretch and or do relaxation breathing.  Exercise.

● Create positive visualizations for SMART goals: specific, measurable, attainable,

realistic, timely.

● Learn EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to help combat negativity, gain

confidence and attain goals.
