Stress Does NOT Go With My Outfit

Stress Does NOT Go With My Outfit

Are you wearing any STRESS today?

How does it feel?

Does it go with YOUR outfit?

Stress is something that has become the norm and in many circles can even be a badge of honor, similar to the glorification of busy. Been there...still there?

However, we know that when we experience, feel, & wear our stress for any period of time, it feels a lot less like a badge of honor and more like a 20-ton load on our backs, for all to see.

And, as I recently learned, your body will give you a WAKE-UP CALL, in my case SHINGLES, if you ignore any of the warnings for too long.

It's a bit ironic actually... this whole stress thing... since stress was something we needed back in the "running from a lion to save my life" days as a natural way to keep us safe.

In today's world, we've manipulated that fight or flight response in a way that's causing harm & draining our energy faster than the lion we were...

Sleep, Sex, & the Snooze Button

Did those three little "S" words get your attention?

"What do these words have in common", you ask? Well, except for the fact that they all start with the letter "s"?

These three things are drastically affected by our ENERGY, which just so happens to be our theme for February.

When our energy levels are lacking, it's usually because we aren't getting enough sleep which means we are hitting the snooze button far too often and for the other "s"... well, it can feel as farfetched of an option as the vision of you jumping out of bed each morning ready to seize the day!

As for our three little "s" words... on any given day we may think we don't get enough, we want more, and perhaps we do one of them more often then we'd like.

I will leave it to you to decide where those answers go in the lineup...and I'll leave it to Dr. Ruth for guidance on the other "s".

So, let's dive in to where I can help...

Energy In vs Out

Say hello to February!

Did it take anyone else the first 6 days of the month to actually admit that it is, in fact, here?

Or, was that just me?

Oh February, you cute little month, you!

You are short and sweet and almost always centered around love.

Now, I love "love" just as much as the next person, but that warm-and-fuzzy February feeling isn't quite how I'd describe what's lingering after our first thirty-something days of the year.


Well, January was meaty!

And, I'm not talking ground-turkey-meaty which is easily be broken up & stirred.


I'm talking T-bone-meaty... thick and marbled and tough in parts, a few tender bites here and there... and mostly leaving us feeling the way you do after eating an actual T-bone steak ... fatigued, heavy, and in need of a nap.

Yeah... that kind of meaty.

And while we can also say that January was full and productive and a necessary transition after the holidays, the...

Bookending Our Days

It's our last Tuesday in January

And, it's going to be the best one.

"How?", you ask?

By learning to bookend our days with mindful morning & nighttime routines to create productive, complete, and fulfilling daily experiences. That's how!

In today's F.I.E.R.C.E. Life message, we are digging into what to do before we hit the proverbial "hay" so we s et ourselves up for restful sleep and wake-up ready to seize the day!

"End your day with a smile ,

A happy thought,

And a grateful heart."

Clint Walker

How do you feel this morning?

Relaxed and ready for the day?

Rushed after a few snooze hits?

Or, perhaps somewhere in between ?

If you could describe your morning mood as a movie title , what would it be?

As a [self-proclaimed] movie buff, I actually love to use movie titles as analogies to characterize pretty much any part of my life.

Let's give it a try!

Which title sums up your AM attitude:
