Have you ever experienced a career change, a geographical change, marriage, divorce, childbirth, infertility, retirement, job loss, empty nest, a change in health status, or some other weighty change? Each one can begin a transition - a unique opportunity to realign your life. Linda Rossetti joins me to discuss transition - give us our first opportunity to put vocabulary around it, understand it, and normalize it. She also discuss the step-by-step roadmap we can use to make transition positive, optimistic and approachable - moving THROUGH it, rather than just getting past it.
Anxiety and Depression are rampant in our society - but do we confuse anxiety with stress? Do stress and anxiety lead to depression? How do we know if we are just sad or clinically depressed? Listen as Dr. William Becker, MD, explains more of how patients are diagnosed and treated, in addition to other forms of treatment available - non-pharmaceutical - but also why pharmaceutical options are sometimes needed. Information on the brain, on anxiety in youth and treatment options.
Our negative thoughts can create anxiety, anger, resentment, jealousy—an array of emotions. Negative thinking is normal. However, if this way of thinking becomes incessant, it can lead to depression and self-destructive behavior like addictions, derailing us from what we want most in life. At minimum, negative thinking saps our energy, erodes our self-confidence and can put us in a bad mood. Certainly, many would agree that our thoughts come and go so quickly that it’s seems impossible to notice them, but with awareness and an attitude of self-compassion, we can redirect our negative thoughts to more positive ones. Listen in - and with my special guest, Donna Miller, we’ll talk about the power of thoughts and self talk – as THOUGHT PRECEDES FORM, and Donna will share with us about her journey as an example of what is possible for all of us.
Victims of covert aggression (manipulation) don't often know why they feel so badly. They only know that they feel confused, anxious, or depressed. Gradually, however, they come to understand how dealing with a certain person in their lives makes them feel crazy. They get mad at them, but for some reason, end up feeling guilty themselves. They confront them about their behavior, only to end up on the defensive. Nothing they try seems to make things better. In the end, dealing with this person leaves them feeling confused, exploited and abused. Despite the fact that victims may be intelligent, resourceful and creative, most of the ways they've tried to understand and cope with the manipulative behaviors weren't getting them anywhere, and some things make matters worse. Tonight, with special guest, author Dr. George K. Simon, learn a new way to understand the character of manipulative people and be able to identify manipulative behavior WHEN IT OCCURS, to reduce the opportunities of being victimized.
Regardless of power outtages (in the Northeast!) and spring cleaning practically overlapping - and quite possibly overwhelming - we can easily feel stress and anxiety trying to keep up with our busy lives. Listen in with my guest, Gail Kreitzer of The Little Big Things, LLC, as we explore the idea "dashboarding your mind" to clear the clutter and enhance executive functioning. Gail's system, My Dashboard Planner, is a visual way to get the "stuff" out of your head, organize it and take better, more effective action. The perfect storm, you say? How about the perfect plan.

Are your beliefs poisoning your potential? Beliefs form the foundations of our expectations, and our expectations help us to better understand ourselves, others, and the world around us. They help us feel more certain about our future, which makes us feel safe and secure. These beliefs may have protected us when we were young, and that is why we hold onto them for so long. As an adult, however, these beliefs may no longer serve a purpose - they may even be a hindrance. If your life has changed, but your beliefs have remained constant, you may be feeling "stuck" in the present. Today we discuss how we form these beliefs, why they stick around, and what we can do to change them – in order to really live up to our potential!
If your mood is as cold and dark as your landscape, you're in good company. It is that time of year (again) when gray skies and empty trees can lead to gray moods and staying indoors to hibernate. What’s more, as our energy lowers, so can our motivation for staying on track with those New Year’s resolutions we decided on only five weeks ago! (I know, right? It goes so quickly!). So, tonight we’re going to be addressing those winter doldrums, and what you can do to lift yourself up until that groundhog decides to come outside and stay. We’ll also take the time to talk about course correction on those resolutions – just in case things have gone a little astray.
ANXIETY – the squeaky wheel. Anxiety is an emotion like any other - with its ebbs and flows. When anxiety starts building on itself, it gets very loud - like the toddler in the supermarket having a tantrum - and we can hear nothing else. Being an emotion, we can (more) simply, either lose control of, or gain control of it – like any other emotion – and our emotions serve a purpose. We have to understand the message inside the mood in order to name it, respond effectively and release it. We’ll begin to understand anxiety a little more, learn the message it's really sending, and then give it another job to do (instead of a time out).
In a world where information is superabundant, unique and creative ideas are hot-ticket advantages both personally and professionally.

Accessing your right brain is a skill, one that takes practice. Use the exercises within to harness the power of the brain and see new ideas emerge and develop that make a difference in this ever increasingly complex world.

"An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but it will never break."- Ancient Chinese Proverb Listen to hear my conversation with Laura Schroff, author of "An Invisible Thread" - An inspirational New York Times bestseller that chronicles the lifelong friendship between a busy sales executive and a disadvantaged young boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one small gesture of kindness.

(re-broadcast) Addiction – from Latin which means attached against your will (quite appropriate). Most drugs of abuse work by flooding the brain with dopamine. Alcoholics and drug addicts have extremely low dopamine. These lower starting levels of dopamine in the brain lead to higher spikes when the substance is used. The high causes the crash and the crash causes the craving. Listen to hear special guest, Brian McAlister, speak of addiction, his recovery and his mission to help others find purpose and recover at Full Recovery Wellness Center and live life to the fullest.
It's the new year and time for making goals and plans for the year ahead. Do you want to get in better shape? Take a vacation? Make more time for friends and family, perhaps? All great goals for the year! And are any of your resolutions the same as last year? Well, you're not alone. In this show, we’ll be talking about resolutions – specifically, what they really mean, why they are recurring, and the fixes to make them stick!
For most people, family gatherings during the holidays are rarely stress-free. There's nothing in the world as sticky as a dysfunctional family. You feel good, strong and mature, and 15 minutes into a holiday reunion, you still become hopelessly enmeshed in the same old crazy dynamics. Sound familiar? For many people, family get-togethers require strategies for staying out of such sticky situations. Before you head over the river and through the woods, we’re going to talk about the common sticky situations at family gatherings and what you can do to preserve your good feelings and feel ok afterwards.
What events trigger stress for you during the holidays? Stress, in general, is an important topic, but particularly at the holiday time of year - buying and giving, the money, the parties, the lack of time, the food and drink, the family issues, the loneliness. Do I need to go on? And at the end of it all, it's our loved ones that we bring our stress home to - not a very good gift! I’ll be talking about what it can do to your body – scientifically - and then discuss practical tips for how you can actually make a difference in your mind, body and life at a cellular level. These tips can begin changing your stress effect - inside and out - and right now
Most of us have been badly hurt or even betrayed by someone close to us. We know the healthy thing to do is to practice forgiveness, but how do we forgive when we are still angry or feel that the other person hasn't taken responsibility? We discuss this powerful and important topic to shift understanding of what it really means to forgive - and the balance between forgiveness, compassion, and self-respect - because forgiveness is actually about getting your power back - NOT giving it up!
A smell, a phrase, a tone, a thought - any of them (and more) can send us reeling back to an experience we wish we never had. PTSD is the most notable form, but previous trauma- physical, mental and emotional - takes place in so many smaller ways as well. We often wonder whether we are just being dramatic, or if there is really something there. This show is about trauma, how we can identify if a past experience is affecting us, and what we can do about it - with a special guest who is a trauma therapist.

Grief Relief

Grief Relief


They say grieving is a process. Loss is something we experience throughout our lives- disappointments, break-ups, and deaths are all part of life. However, not only can these experiences be painful and challenging because of their intensity, we often don't know how to talk about them, prepare for them, or know how to deal with them when they show up. We are often faced with loss and lack the power to deal, feel, and heal. In this show, we talk about how to grow and move through grief. We’ll discuss the five stages of grief, a few lessons to take from it, and then I’ll discuss a method used in grief coaching.
Our emotions have a vast range, but the not-so-good ones can be the real buggers! Good emotions just feel, well, good - but the not-so-good emotions keep us out of alignment – not good. Sometimes the despair or grief we are feeling seems like it will never end, or the anger and resentment. Tonight we’re going to talk about the scale of emotions and how to consistently, and consciously, work your way "up" - from wherever you are. This is about incrementally moving up that scale, consistently, by consciously choosing thoughts. It is a practice, but it is a quantifiable destination as well.
