Tips Tuesday – How We Have Let Men Down!

How We Have Let Men Down

‘Guys Don’t Do stuff Like That!’

‘That Stuff Is For Girls’

‘I Don’t Need To Do Stuff Like That’

HHHMMM  You may be asking yourself what are these comments in response to.

Getting a Manicure, Pedicure or Facial, even sometimes Energy Work or a Massage.

For some this comes as no surprise as many still believe in the old outmoded way that these services include nail polish and flowery lotions and should only be for the weaker sex that ‘Need’ pampering to survive.

For a small percentage however, this comes as a shock as a growing amount of men and women are recognizing the need for men to begin integrating Self Care into their lives.  A new Label, ‘ManScaping’ has been thrown around, or even ‘MetroSexual’ Men.  I have my own label for it………….

HUMAN BEING.

Aside from a few obvious physical attributes that do not match everything about men and women in every other way does.  We all have the same Mental, Physical, and Emotional needs, this can not be denied, so why are we not attending to the very basic needs of our men and if anything chasitizng them for it?

In an effort for Women to find equality, Men seem to have gotten misplaced and caused to become off balance as they try to get their footing on what their ‘Role’ is.  It saddens me that where I celebrate the strength women have shown in almost fully gaining equality, yes I say Almost. Men have lost their way too, however where women tend to be more nurturing with each other as we find our way through the confusion,  men are still attempting to shake off the ‘Roles’ and ‘Belles’ they were raised with, with little to no support.

‘Boys should be tough’

‘Boys don’t cry’

‘All that hair and nail stuff is frew frew and girlie stuff’

‘Guys don’t ‘share’ their feelings, just shake it off dude’

‘It shows weakness to ‘Need’ anyone or anything’

‘It’s weak to show vulnerability, and BE vulnerable in a setting where someone else is nurturing them’

Why have we let our Testosterone counter parts down so?

I encourage you to read these articles to open your eyes to the startling reality that we as a culture have dropped the ball here.  I can not stress enough (Pun Intended) how important it is that we treat and educate our small boys and girls how immensely crucial it is that we teach equality from in the womb.  Many could fear this thinking our ‘Men’ are our strength and protection and if they become ‘soft’ will our culture fall apart?  I think this is old thinking, and unhealthy.  Many strong women (Including those currenlty serving our country in uniforms) would argue they do not ‘Need’ a man for strength or protection but ‘Choose’ to share their life with a man for mutual enjoyment and equality.

I think we are standing in new territory, so I invite you to look at our new culture as one where both sexes are strong, watch each others back through tough times, celebrate in the good times and can show a full spectrum of balanced emotions.  I believe that a man is equally capable of raising a family, and teaching his children culinary and domestic skills while instilling emotional and psychologically balancing traits to their off spring, equal to their counter parts.  I believe that women are equally as capable of ‘Bringin home the bacon’, Kicking ass and taking names and showing strength and fortitude in mentally, physically or emotionally challenging situations.

So let’s be real here.  If we are truly to be equal sexes, then we must observe this in all areas.  Let’s show our guys they deserve nurturing, not because it’s pampering, but because it’s maintenance.  It wouldn’t hurt some of our lady friends to recognize this for themselves too.  Anyone who has ever had any of the previously mentioned services will attest to the fact that it goes far deeper then the physical, which alone is scientifically proven to improve health, but healing the mind and emotions on far deeper levels.

So while you entertaining yet another tie for the Guy on your Christmas list this year…..Consider the gift of equality through desperately needed nurturing to our Masculine counter parts.

Tips Tuesday – Tool Kit For Sustainable Stability

Tool Kit For Sustainable Stability

As many of you know, I chose to expand our HHDS services to incorporate holistic and energy services a couple years ago, and recently opened The Institute For Harmonious Living to yet again expand the impact we could have on the health, wellness and in turn over all health of the planet by assisting our community in finding balance one client at a time.  This approach has had HUGE results by giving sustainable skills and tools to clients to deal with anything that life might throw at them through a ‘W’-Holistic Life Coaching Approach!  Knowing that this time of year tends to increase anxiety and depression, this seemed like a good time to unveil this workshop to help empower you to over come these set backs with practical exercises to neutralize these negative emotions.

I’d like to invite you to a workshop I’m holding coming up for a wide variety of individuals,  anyone just learning about all of this to individuals who have been in the holistic and energy fields for a while.  No matter who you are, novice or veteran there is room for improvement and always room for new tools for a more balance life!

Tool Kit for Sustainable Stability

@ The Rock Spa Monday November 9th 7-9 $20

R.S.V.P Here: http://therockspa.com/Workshops-Classes-Events

Do you have trouble sleeping?

Are you wanting more positive relationship connections to your parents, or your children?

Are you attaining all of your career goals?

Do you wish you had a deeper connection to your partner?

Are you finding you are running out of hours in the day to meet all of your expectations?

 

These questions seem all quite random but in reality are all connected. Through a ‘W-Holistic’ Life Coaching approach all of these challenges become one. As you are connected to all things, and as what is within you is what you create outside of you, a seemingly ‘specific’ approach will not work. What I mean by ‘Specific’ is counselling to address your marriage as a specific issue, will not address the core root and will not ’solve’ the root problem. Career coaching may seem to make sense for your career but in reality it will not solve the core issues coming up inside you that created the exterior defection. Why you ask? Because EVERYTHING is connected. Your marriage affects your job, your job affects the relationship with your kids, and your lack of energy meeting every demand that comes at you lowers your energy even more and prevents you from being the best you, you can be. I will be discussing how understanding your programs, beliefs and roles you play in your relationships affect every experience you have, every relationship you have and how your life will unfold from this point forward. My goal is to finally and indefinitely give you back your power. Not by giving you tips on marketing your business, or how to ask your partner nicely to do the dishes, but to get to the very originating point of programed awareness that has created the imbalance within YOU in the first place.

Come join me for an introduction to an active approach to your own inner work that will empower you by giving you the TOOLS and SKILLS to overcome ANY obstacle that ever comes your way while enjoying relationships and experiences that truly feed your soul.

Before you go enjoy this list of simple tools to begin your journey, and prep for our gathering next Tuesday

Breathing Meditation

Put your hand on your stomach and take a deep breath while blowing your tummy up like a balloon

after two practice breathes put your other hand on your ribs and repeat inflate your tummy and chest noticeably and with intention

Next move your tummy hand to your chest keeping your other hand on your ribs and take two more breathes while noticeably raising your chest.

**Most people do not breath correctly this exercise increase your ability to feed your body with wonderful clean air.  This will help energize you if you are low and it calms you if you are stressed.  A great technique to use before bed or in place of the naughty afternoon snack!

Journaling

Every morning use your journal to set your intention for the day using positive words and focusing on te good you wish to share with the world.  Writing this down allows you to become reminded throughout the day of the positive commitment you have made to your self and those around you.

At the end of your day, journal about anything knocking around in your head, also use this time to reflect on things you wish to improve for the next day in a non judgmental but observant approach.  End your journaling for the night with gratitude for wonderful experiences throughout your day and life in general.  Always end with positivity!

 

Tips Tuesday – Slow Down

stressed-out-working-mom-25437893

Rush, Rush , Rush, Hustle and Bustle!  This Time of year is notorious for stress and pressure.  On top of the regular expectations come a boat load more, baking, cooking, parties, engagements, deadlines, shopping, decorating, when does it end!

The sad thing is we get so busy and stressed we forget, or simply become impervious, to the joy of the season.  Let’s get back to the root of it.  Spending quality time with those who matter most.  So….Make a list of the people who mean the most, book them in first, make a list of the absolutely most important things you feel would bring the most Joy to your heart and those of your spouse and children, then say “No” to everything else.  Notice I didn’t say make a list of things you “Have” to or “Should ” do?  There are no should’s or have to, except for the ones you put on yourself.  This is going to be an all new experience for you!  One where you give yourself permission to just “BE”!  Live in the moment, squeeze out joy of every moment.  If you are not, you are not “Doing ” the Holidays right.

So if you enjoy baking, do it , if you don’t , don’t do it.  If you enjoy baking with the kids but not the 300 squares and cookies you felt you had to so last year just do the baking with the kids.  Take back your power, take back your joy for the season.  Christmas cards are another one, some people think they “Should” do them, others have given up long ago.  Do you enjoy the process?  Is it a time you enjoy reconnecting with loved ones, if so then Go Nuts!  If you see it as a dreaded task staring at you from your desk, LOSE IT!  Maybe you’re just too busy but you like the idea of keeping in touch!  Type out a letter on your computer and customize it for each individual with the basics covered for each person, print it off and send it in the New Year instead!  Who says it has to be sent by Dec 25th?

Live your life on your terms!  What keeps us in distress is doing things we feel obligated to do.  think of all the glorious quality time you would have with your closest loved ones if you cut out the fat from your Holiday experience.  You don’t have to single handedly execute the essential Holiday events for everyone.  It’s your Holiday too!  You’re Children and your spirit will thank you and you will finally have the pleasant Holiday memories all those old black and white movies tell us about!!

This is ME giving YOU permission to Truly and Authentically Enjoy the Holiday season ON YOUR TERMS!  For more empowering strategies I encourage you to come visit me @ HHDS for a Holistic Health and Wellness, Life Coaching Session!

Tips Tuesday- Celebrate the Holidays by Preserve your memories! Put your best face forward!

DSC_1580

I don’t know about you, but, the ever mounting awareness of over consumerism and the UN’s latest report on how we can turn this ‘Freight Train’ of Eco Disaster around within a century if we are diligent, brings me to a simple conclusion for this Holiday.  Preserve what means most to you!  Memories, Family, Living in the moment and the reason for the season.  I have had guests come in offering what their traditions have been or have evolved into. I loved the stories of awareness where as they recognize what abundance they enjoy in their own life they generously share with others by donating to local or international causes!  I personally LOVE the idea of giving a family member an ‘Ass’ for the Holidays to a needy village in another country.  How funny would that be to say I go an ‘Ass’ for Christmas!  But as the giggles subside the feeling of overwhelming gratitude for having so much and being able to give so much to others would leave you glowing far beyond the 12 days of Christmas!  As a sister of a unbelievably talented photographer, I see the value

However there are those that would argue that it is nice to show love and gratitude to those you’re closest too as well!  This is why we have offer you the opportunity to give the gift perfect for everyone!  For those who have everything, or have forgotten how much they have, something that is never the wrong size, shape or colour.

A framed picture of their dearest loved ones!  As a sister of a unbelievably talented photographer, I see the value beyond words of reflecting on the milestones and memories captured in a simple framed memento!

This Saturday Nov 15th from 8:30 to 2:30

We are offering you the opportunity to capture your memory!  Whether an updated Headshot is needed or you wish to capture the generational span of Grandmother, Mother and Daughter a Beautiful bonding opportunity awaits you and the opportunity to capture the fun day within the posterity of film!

For only $70, ($35 for kids)

You Receive A wash, BlowDry, Style, Mineral Makeup Application and a 20 minute photo shoot and as an added gift a FREE 8×10 Photograph to keep or gift away for the Holidays!

We have limited space so call asap to reserve your Glamour Shot Session!

Tips Tuesday – You Are What You Eat! And How Much!

morgan_edited-1

It’s getting to be that time of year! Holiday Season Approaches and If you are already in a state over your eating habits, you will find yourself slipping into a worry over how the Holidays will leave you in the New Year?! Will you have to top the list of resolutions with losing weight or eating better? Or will you simply continue on as you are?
If you are like thousands of others, your routine will be that of over indulgence believing “Next Year” is the year you will lose the weight or lose the habits of poor eating. No matter what size you are, I have seen Skinny Minny’s who eat very poorly and those with more insulation with wonderful eating habits, Hypnosis for Weight Loss is a great option! Brenda Schrader offers extensive experience into the benefits of Healing through Hypnosis. Although the name of the class implies a ‘weight loss’ theme, it really is for simply having better eating habits. In this incredible session, she will relax you deeply and speak to your sub conscious mind! Encouraging you to making better choices and paying attention to your body when it is satiated.
What better way to go into the Holidays then with self Empowerment and Self Control! Enjoy the Holidays without the worry, fear or stress of how you will handle your celebrations, simply enjoy yourself and allow the healing influence of hypnosis remove the shadow of concern over a happy holiday season!
Our LAST Hypnosis for weight loss is scheduled for this weekend, Sat Nov 8th From 12-2:30, just bring your comfy’s and some water! A $10 Deposit is required, please arrange the payment before class date, the total cost is $70 plus hst. Future refresher Hypnosis for this class is only $30 if you would like to.
I have experienced this amazing class and I truly see results!
Call in to Reserve a seat, only 6 seats in total to keep things intimate!
