  Stress gets a bad rap - and for the most part, rightfully so. But there is a good kind of stress and it’s called Eustress.  We experience eustress at various times. Like riding a roller coaster, or giving that presentation of a lifetime. Oh, that adrenaline is pumping! When the event is over, your hormones, like adrenaline and cortisol goes back to normal. Unfortunately the stress we experience in our day to day tends to stay with us and those hormone levels stay high. And this can cause a multitude of physical and mental issues. The answer - Take a break from work to decompress and do something enjoyable every day. Practice gratitude to remind yourself of all the good things in life. Breathe - check out our free breathing technique in the resource section of our website. And tell yourself, if I’m breathing then I’m still ok!

Probably the most important conversations you have are the ones you have with yourself. They can be the most productive or the most damaging. We create what’s called arbitrary relational frames in our mind. Let me give you an example: Look around you and pick an object near you. Now choose one more thing in your space. Got them? Now, of the two objects, which is better? Go ahead - make a case for why one is better than the other. Of the the two objects, which is the parent and why? (Which came first?) I chose a shoe and a laser printer. And I’m sure, like me, you were able to completely logic the answers to each of those questions. I know I was quite satisfied with my answers. Here’s the point - You create everything from your perception and then make judgments about them -even if it doesn’t make sense or isn’t important.  What thoughts, beliefs and ideas do you hold that have been created arbitrarily, and though you’ve forced them to make sense in some way, no longer serve you? Sometimes it’s hard to let go of these things - and that’s where we can help.

It’s more than likely that everyone of you watching has exchanged something at one time. You’ve easily exchanged a dress that didn’t fit for the right size, an awful tie you got for your birthday, or the baking soda you bought instead of the baking powder. It was really easy wasn’t it because you made a mistake or just wanted that item to satisfy you. So perhaps it would be just as easy to think of exchanging an old worn out habit of thought or action that doesn’t serve you, for a fresh one that reflects who you want to be or that would satisfy you more. Exchange something that restricts your health or relationships for something open and able to create abundance, growth and joy. And all of these exchanges add up, and they become expectations. And then they become habits or beliefs. Remember, a belief is just something you keep thinking over and over again. And you know you can change exchange your thoughts any time. Change your thoughts, change your mind, change your life. We can help with that!

Feel like you are always pedaling uphill, or worse yet, your chain has come off and you are stuck where you are on your path? There are many things that can keep you stuck. Stuck in worry or fear or pain, or because of these things, in a lack of sleep. Stuck with unwanted habits like improper eating, smoking, or other activities that are really just distractors for dealing with something you don’t want to address. Stuck with old, out-dated beliefs that may have served you at one time but now, well, just keep you stuck in a place you no longer desire to be. Stuck not feeling the way you want to feel about yourself or living the life you want to live. Perhaps you are doing ok but want to be the best possible version of yourself - to ride at you optimum level of performance.

  I remember one day about 7 years ago walking along the creek at Minnehaha Falls with my daughter. We were watching some 7-8 years old playing totally uninhibited in the river. My daughter asked, when did I forget how to do that? She was only 22.

I’d love you to make a treasure chest. Sometimes life is challenging and throws a lot of stuff our way. It’s those times that we need to dig in and gather the resources that we have inside to get through.

So why you don’t need the treasure chest now, get a bunch of slips of paper and a jar or pretty box. On those slips of paper write down resources that you have.

They may be physical things that make you feel better. like a warm snuggly blanket. It could be emotional, like going to a place where you feel really comfortable. It could be meditation. Or something spiritual like prayer or connecting somehow.

We all have amazing resources inside of us - physical, spiritual and mental things that help get us through tough times. Write down as many as you can think of on individual slips of paper. Put them in your treasure chest and when one of those tough times comes along, pick one out and do it!

Absolute truths are fact based. This is a pen. Water is wet. Rocks are hard.Relative truths are opinion based and agreement based. This is what we’ve made up as fact, by society or in our own minds. Both kinds of truth are very real.

As adults we are all too familiar with our own stress. We can feel it in our body and see the impact it has on our lives. We are also quite willing to share our stress journey with our friends, family and co workers. This sharing with others allows us to recognize that there are others out there just like us.
