Do you feel like your going to explode? Election Anxiety, job, kids? Your not alone, tips to help you NOW!!

Election Anxiety, feel out of balance, do you need to calm down, sleep better?

IMG_8274Do you ever feel like your going to explode? One of the biggest problem facing people  and families today is stress and the feeling that they are never going to catch up, always running to the next event, always a email or text to answer or a fire to put out, or worried world events such as the election. In order to manage many high level people are seeking alternative ways to manage the unbalance in their lives, they want to reduce stress, feel happier without taking medication, without seeing a "shrink". The feeling of being on call all the time and under constant attack does impacts your health and effectiveness in doing your job. Business  are helping employees  taking action implementing new methods in the workplace helping lower sick days and increasing wellness and productivity. Time tested methods from around the world are being used in homes and the  work place.  People are seeing and seeing the  great results. More and more families and businesses are looking for help. People want to feel better and don't want to take medication, they don't want to have to drink alcohol to relax. People want to feel good about themselves and work in a positive space. Its hard in the over stimulated world we live in to find peace, that is why I teach people to find it in their bodies. I see clients in NYC and at Nicholas Day Spa and Salon | Pelham NY 914 • 738 • 3838nicholasdayspa.com/

 I have developed a method that can help restore and align the physical and emotional balance through Chakras. I have over 20 years of experience with Reiki and energy healing, Chakras and card reading and helping people move to a higher level. When your in balance you’re stronger and more resilient to stress and better at your job. The better you feel, the better equipped you’will be to manage work, people and stress without becoming overwhelmed, the more successful you will feel and it will reflect in your performance. When you feel happier and at peace the energy is picked up by people you work with. When the energy is good in a office productivity goes up. When productivity is up, people make more money, feel more in control of their lives and everyone benefits. Chakras are energy centers, or portals in the human energy field. Located along the central channel of the body from the base of the spine to the top of the head, they are conceived of as whirling, wheel-like vortices through which universal/cosmic energy flows into and out of a person. Some of my clients even have salt lamps on their desk to absorb negative energy. I often distribute crystals that are kept in the office or carried in a brief case. "what the hell I keep one in my bra". Can't hurt will only help says one of my multi million dollar real estate clients.

Do you have election anxiety? I think we all do, we are getting more information then we can process. I feel for Mr. Trump, ‚ÄčI gave Donald Trump a quartz crystal for good energy when I saw him in NYC at Trump Tower. He has good energy so much energy coming at him, its proof that he can survive and when elected will be one of our greatest presidents.

Many people on are feeling sad and depressed and overwhelmed because the energy flow is off, even looking down at a computer and phone results in slumped over with your neck and shoulders curved forward and head looking down. Its just not a natural position and manifests in blocked energy flow. Resulting in headaches, eye strain and loss of creativity and being open to new ideas. Many people are stuck, stuck because the energy is not flowing in their bodies, stuck because they need to get out of the mind and in the body. I help shift the energy, its as simple as that.IMG_8276

The relationship between our mind and body runs both ways, meaning our mind influences the way our body reacts, but the form of our body also triggers our mind.

Taking care of yourself doesn't’ require a total lifestyle overhaul, it can start small and then organically it will naturally become bigger. When you feel good you look good and when you look good you feel good.  Even small things can lift your mood, increase your energy, and make you feel like you’re back in the driver’s seat. Take things one step at a time, and as you make more positive lifestyle choices, you’you will soon notice a reduction in your stress levels, both at home and at work.  For example salt lamps are even kept on your desk at work too,Himalayan Salt Lamp: Glass Bowl Lamp with Salt Crystals Himalayan Salt Lamp: Glass Bowl Lamp with Salt Crystals. As Himalayan salt lamp warms up with the light bulb it emits negative ions into the air. This process may help relieve symptoms of Asthma, Sinusitis and common allergies, not to mention helps absorb co-workers negative energy.images-22 While energy can neither be created, nor destroyed, this unique process balances the energy within, resulting in a more definitive, more elevated and more centered sense of being. I like to use a mixture of methods to help ease the anxiety and bring out the best.

- Guided Meditation
- Intention Visualization
-  Hands on Reiki Re-balancing
- Chakra Clearing and alignment
- Crystal Energies in conjunction with
and the Figure "8" Detoxifies with aroma therapy increases your personal vibration and frequency. chakra energy
 
Each component of the practice, works together for the purpose of igniting the light within and restoring the balance, to enable ones full potentials. These methods improves your ability to manage stress and lead through the change and challenge that have become inevitable in the lives of leaders, families, kids, CEO, business leaders. People want to improved effectiveness as a leaders and reduce stress, parents want to be in the moment and enjoy their children. People also want to find alternative ways to connect and relax with co workers and their families. Cocktails after work are fine, but night after night as a way to relax is not healthy or productive.  Sometimes people just loose track because they are stressed and not staying in the moment. The high level of stress may be your new normal. That is what I see when dealing with business leaders of today. Some CEO's are so stressed they are not even taking time out to take care of the normal functions. Sleeping, eating right, sex, and family time, ( not necessarily in that order).
Meditation combined with Reiki, Chakra alignment, are sharpening  my clients focus  to help them preform the most important tasks and priorities, in both their professional and personal lives. 
These methods can actually do more in less time then other methods by having treatments and practicing the method daily.crystal-cove-med-2
Relaxing is critical for clear and creative thinking, strong relationships and good health. Energy you spend away from work can enhance your productivity and your capacity to deal with things at work. Just imagine when your energy is flowing and you feel good, relaxed positive what u can accomplish. Positive thinking, good energy affects the people u work with as well as personal life. When I say time away from work I mean a mini mental break during the day can help you reduce your stress. One of the challenges I encounter is that people are so busy planning the next move they are missing the moment resulting in a feeling of emptiness, never completing a task. 
With this method, companies are finding workers happier and less sick days. Kids that practice also have higher grades and less sick days too.  Its a wonderful feeling to be in balance and having everything aligned and feeling that the possibilities are endless of good energy and positive thoughts.
In NYC the energy of the city breeds creativity and new opportunities and when all of this is aligned the sky is the limit.

13 MANNERS to review with our kids!

 13 MANNERS to review with our kids! A refresher never hurts anyone! Parents  we need reminders too.

images-8

1. Say "please" and "thank you." The two benchmarks of good manners, but sadly lacking today, despite the fact that teaching kids to say them is a simple process of reminding them.

2. Make eye contact. Personal interaction requires some level of engagement, and unless there are special circumstances, eye contact is the bare minimum.images-9

3. Chew with their mouths closed. Nobody likes the site of chewed up food, and open mouths increase the chance of things falling out.

4. Don't interrupt. Unless it's an emergency (it usually isn't), kids need to learn patience and allow an interaction to continue.

5. Don't text at the table. Seemingly a no-brainer, I am constantly astounded by how much kids (and adults) check their phones during meals. I'm guilty, but trying not to do it!

6. Don't text during conversations. Nothing relays the message that you've got better things to do than checking your phone during a conversation.

7. Honor Privacy You don't have to read someone's diary to invade her privacy. In a world of reality TV and 24/7 social media, it's challenging to maintain a sense of privacy. 

  • Knock on the door before entering a room.

  • Do not eavesdrop on others' conversations.

  • Don't spread gossip and rumors.

  • Don't share and forward the personal information (or photos) of others.

  • Do put an end to forwards that land in your lap. It stops here.

8. Learn to say "excuse me." Always appropriate when interrupting a situation or when releasing "gas."

9. Have integrity  "Honesty and integrity are at the very foundation of one's character," says Sena. Our children must learn how powerful their words are, and how using them wisely is at the core of good manners.

  • Tell the truth. "It's not always easier to tell the truth, but it's always better in the long run," says Nickell. "Our children should know that lying won't get them anywhere, and that honesty really is the best policy."

  • Stick to your word. "Teach the importance of following through and living by your word," says Nickell. "It's an essential part of life, and it's a lesson children can begin to learn at a young age." If you say you're going to do something, stick to it.

10.Respect your elders "Speak to adults respectfully and look them in the eye when they are speaking to you," says Liz Taylor, an etiquette consultant in Minneapolis. Refer to them as Mr. or Mrs. unless they tell you otherwise. (If you don't know their names, refer to them as sir or ma'am.) Politely offer them your seat or let them go before you (through a door, in a buffet line, or anywhere).

11. Lose gracefully. If you do your best, then it doesn't matter whether you win or lose. We can't win every game, so when you lose, be sure to thank your opponent, shake hands and say, "Well done!" or "Good job." No sore losers, please.Unknown-8

  • Maintain a positive attitude. Sports and games should emphasize building each other up, taking turns, playing as a team, working hard and striving to improve. By focusing on these positives, there will be fewer bad manners when there is a loss.

12. Acknowledge friends and acquaintances. A simple nod or smile is all it takes, versus ignoring them completely.

13. Eat your food,with mouth closed, just another reminder!

New England Patriots, Deflate Gate offers 5 teachable moments for kids!

New England Patriots, "Deflate Gate" offers 5 teachable moments for kids!IMG_8066

Deflate gate is a teachable moments. I love Tom Brady and The Super Bowl, dressing in Patriots colors and having fun. That will not be taken away because of "de-flategate". Children need to know that no organization is 100% pure, for instance. According to the New York Post, the other Super Bowl team, the Seahawks, leads the league in performance-enhancing drug suspensions. And it’s important to emphasize that people (or teams) shouldn't’t be defined by their worst actions. The Barry Bonds Family Foundation helps fund outreach programs for African-American youth in San Francisco. If they cheated, they must be held accountable, like Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez, the highest paid player in the history of baseball, came  clean about his use of steroids in the last decade as part of an immunity deal with the Drug Enforcement Association. The truth will come out.IMG_8056

 I always say think about the consequences of how you will eventually be viewed because of your actions today. Just because people accuse does not make it true. According to http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/deflategate-patriots-tom-brady-colts/ Pro-Football-Reference’s expected points metric, which tracks how many net points are added by each play after accounting for down, distance and field position, Tom Brady and the Patriots’ passing offense added 14.1 points to the team’s margin. By contrast, Andrew Luck and the Colts contributed -10.5 expected points through the air, so the difference among the two teams’ passing production was worth about 24.6 points of scoring margin to the Patriots — still about two touchdowns shy of the Colts’ entire scoreboard deficit. The proof is in the record.

I would like to offer some parenting advice and  talking points concerning this "deflate gate, I think it can open great conversation

1. Talk about our moral value

2. Talk about why people cheat inadequacy or they worry about underperforming

3. Talk about consequences, reparably damage their relationships with their peers.

4. Talk about  accusations overpower your love for The New England Patriots or any sport and what it means to be a fan and just enjoy.

5.  Talk about how to cope with the disappointment of loosing or finding out that somebody cheated and how to handle it.

Whatever the outcome of the game, take the opportunity to have fun and enjoy, truthfully I like the game, enjoy the commercials and halftime entertainment with my friends and family the most ! IMG_8059

Parenting Expert Worries for Jolie & Pitt's Gender-Bender Daughter

 

Monday, 29 Dec 2014 03:43 PM

 Article | 

 

 
 

 

The decision by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to let their 8-year-old daughter go by the name of John and wear boys' clothes could trigger gender issues down the road, parenting expert Cherie Corso says.

 

"This child needs guidance. Maybe she sees her parents playing different roles and is dressed up and she's playing at a role, but as far as changing her name to John, it's ridiculous," Corso said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.

"Parents need to guide and protect their children, and Brad and Angelina should not be considered trailblazing for parenthood at all. They live in the happy forest of Hollywood, let's say."

The superstar couple supports their blonde, blue-eyed daughter Shiloh's desire to be called John and wear masculine outfits.

Shiloh recently raised eyebrows as she attended the premiere of her mother's holiday blockbuster, the PG-13 movie "Unbroken," attired in a suit and sporting a boyish haircut.
Corso said that could be harmful.

"I’m all for diversity, but Angelina is running her crew like she's running a movie set. Okay, we need someone transgender, can we pull someone in?" Corso told host Steve Malzberg.

"It's very dangerous what she's doing. I really, truly, as a mom and a parenting expert, my heart goes out to this little girl."

Corso said Jolie's own gender history might play a part.

"Sometimes you have to look back at the parent's relationship with their own mother and father — and I know that Angelina in the news has been bisexual," she said.

"She has been seen French-kissing her brother on the red carpet. I mean, you're not dealing with the traditional mother like myself, so this does cause social and gender confusion."

Yet Shiloh's role-playing may be completely innocent, Corso says.

"She does have two brothers, and maybe she just wants to be one of the guys and maybe she sees the privileges that they're getting and she just might be one of the guys," Corso said.

"But again, I have to stress that this child needs to explore her own identity . . . in a private way."

In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Jolie said of Shiloh's tomboy style: “She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. So, it’s a suit with a tie and a jacket and slacks, or a tracksuit. She likes to dress like a boy.

"She wants to be a boy, so, we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”

In a 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Pitt explained: "She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So, it's a Peter Pan thing. So, we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want . . .' — 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!' "

Jolie, who has been married three times, is well known for her own gender bending on and off the screen.

She played a bisexual fashion model in the 1998 HBO movie "Gia." She was once hot and heavy with model Jenny Shimizu, saying in a 1997 interview with Girlfriends magazine: "I fell in love with her the first second I saw her."

Olympic LESSONS for You and YOUR KIDS!

IMG_3972

 

The Olympics are a great activity for families to watch together and can also offer a number of valuable lessons for kids get kids YEAH I love watching personally but the leasons that are taught to people around the world transcend every age and generation, they resinate with everybody!

These are a just a few  off the top of my head as a MOM!

1.The importance of exercise-   The Olympics are a great time to expose your children to some new ideas for exercising and to encourage them to try a new sport. After Im finished watching the athletes on TV,  I personally want to book a ski trip, or have a little fun with the kids by sliding  down the stairs in a sleeping bag!  So much fun, put pillows in the landing area. Create your own activities inspired by our favorites.IMG_3974

2. Goal setting-The Olympic athletes have spent many hours and many years training in their sport. They didn’t become world-class athletes overnight but rather through a lot of training, perseverance and goal setting. Kids always want instant gradification, but the sthletes and the stories paint a picture of hard work. Goals for something they want to accomplish. This could be within a sport or in a different activity such as getting good grades, excelling at a musical instrument, or learning to paint.  They don’t have to be an Olympian to be successful, but these athletes can definitely serve as good role models for your kids on what it looks like when you set your mind to something and persevere.

3.Sportsmanship- The Goal of the Olympics is to take home a medal for your country, we all know that. Not everyone can be a winner and this is an important lesson for kids to learn. Watch how the athletes in the Olympics react to winning and losing and how they treat their opponents and use this as an example for your kids between good and bad sportsmanship. I loved the example of sportmanship set by Shaun White http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsinternet/57534686-71/halfpipe-shaun-gold-decision.html.csp

Switzerland's Iouri Podladtchikov, left, celebrates with Shaun White of the United States after Podladtchikov won the gold medal in the men's snowboard halfpipe final at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. (AP Photo/Andy Wong)

4. Diversity and Acceptance- Today, more than ever, kids interact with people of differing ethnicities, religions, and cultures. But how do you teach them to embrace and thrive among the planet's many cultures? I still can't believe being GAY is even a issue in sports, and life.  maybe because I have friends that are gay and just look at people for people, Im still in shock on  Russia 's views. But this Olympics has opened up conversation around the world, use it as a teaching experience.

5.The  Mental Games- The Mental Games are part of sports!  The determination and how to handle the pressure against showcases perseverance, goal setting and offers another opportunity to talk to your kids about accepting people who are different than them. That what makes a Olympian to be able to handle and preform under the  pressure. TJ Oshie scores in the shoot-outBBC Olymic Sports picture Oshie
