Success

Lost without the Internet

Ever been in a situation where you couldn’t get Internet connection? What were your immediate thoughts and/or responses? Maybe some worry and panic… some nervous tapping of the foot, perhaps? Whatever the case, we can bet they weren’t positive reactions, but is that really the way we should be reacting So the Internets down…THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END, right?! Surprisingly…no, its not, and that’s good news. If you can identify with any of the reactions pictured above (we know we can!), we have some positive resolutions you might enjoy: •       Look in the mirror, think of something that brings you joy.

Why Project Be Free is Important to me

Imagine, if just once a week, I gave my children and husband the same attention and presence to the moment that I give my clients. Imagine if I wasn’t always rushing through my time with them so that I could accomplish some other “to-do” item off my work list. Or if I wasn’t rushing them to bed so that I could answer emails or check my phone…or if we sat and talked without the distraction of phones, computers and TV.

Don't Doom

Life with children is challenging. Period. Throw in work obligations, play dates, a significant other, your own social life, school work, your child(ren)’s social life, house cleaning, and all of the other jobs that exist throughout the day, and it is easy to become overwhelmed.

Get Ready for School: Feng Shui Your Children’s Rooms

September can be the worst month in a home with children. In the process of transitioning into a new school year, parents as well as children can be overwhelmed.  With a change in schedules, new schools, new teachers, new expectations, and new friends, this time of year can really test a family’s coping skills.

According to a study conducted by the APA (American Psychology Association) in 2006, nearly half (47 percent) of Americans are concerned with the level of stress in their daily lives and those with children living at home were more likely to be concerned about stress than those without.

So if you’re stressed out, just imagine how your children feel!  Feng Shui does not come with a magic fairy wand (unfortunately, there is no “Easy” button like the commercials), but there are some things you can do to make their spaces a safe haven that will provide support and nurturing during these challenging times.

Some Basics

Be sure to check that your front door entry (both inside and outside) is welcoming. Check that it’s free of clutter, well-lit and attractive. A welcoming entry allows opportunity to come in and reach all the members of the home, so this is the first step to ensure your children have the best chance for success.
