14 PRODUCTIVITY TIPS TO GET MORE DONE

Jul 12, 2020

Ok, so I’m sitting at my computer ready to write this post about productivity tips to get more done.

And I suddenly got the urge to do nothing.

It’s funny. Where on earth did that come from?  I rarely sit around and do nothing.  Even in my “free” time, I’m getting stuff done.  And why did the urge come up when I need to discuss productivity tips?  Ironic. 

It’s not uncommon for me to experience some internal...

SELF-CARE FOR BEGINNERS

Jun 27, 2020

I used to neglect my self-care for long periods of time.  Don’t get me wrong.  I took care of the basics like eating, bathing and sleeping but not a whole lot more.  Looking back, it never crossed my mind that self-care should be a priority in my life.  

Taking care of others?  Yes.  

Taking care of myself?  Not so much. 

Fortunately, those days of self-neglect came to an end.  Now, I consider self-care...

GOAL SETTING FOR SUCCESS

Jun 14, 2020

I messed up.

Last month, I posted a blog article called Top Ten Tips for Achieving Your Goals.  It was a concise summary of the factors that go in to making my goals become reality.  I enjoyed writing that post and sharing what I’ve learned over the years on goal achievement.  And the bonus was receiving positive feedback from folks who struggle with achieving their goals.  

Well, that was all wonderful until I realized that I left out a very...

COPING WITH ANXIETY… MY STORY

Jun 07, 2020

 

Before I get started, please know that the purpose of this post is to share my own individual experience on coping with anxiety.  Nothing I say here is intended to replace the attention of a qualified health care professional. 

Ok, now that I have that out of the way, I’d like to share something personal with you.

I have been managing moderate to severe anxiety for nearly 19 years.

Posting that statement makes me feel rather exposed.  Not sure why that...

MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

May 30, 2020

December 20, 2019. 

I’ll never forget that stupid day.

I was assaulted by a number.  A number on a scale…  that I happened to be standing on. 

And I didn’t even see it coming.  

You know the routine.  The nurse calls your name and asks you to stand on the scale.  A number pops up and she records it in your file.  Boom.  Over.  You move on.

You move on unless that is...

JOB SEARCH TIPS FROM AN HR PRO

May 24, 2020

I can’t even begin to express how much my heart hurts for the millions of individuals who have found themselves without employment during the current coronavirus crisis.  Being out of work during normal economic conditions is bad enough.  When those conditions plummet during a world-wide pandemic, being unemployed can be nothing short of scary.  

The national unemployment rate went from 3.7 percent in 2019 to its current high of 14.7...

49 LIFE LESSONS I’VE LEARNED

May 16, 2020

Today is my birthday!

I love my birthday.  I’m like a little kid about the whole thing.  Presents, cards, cake, balloons, parties – all of it gets me super excited.  

But this birthday has been a bit different.  I usually spend most of my free time before the big day planning my celebration and wondering what I’m getting from the hubby.  That has not been the case this year.  I’ve been much more reflective,...

TOP TEN TIPS FOR ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS

May 09, 2020

If I were to have a personal motto, it would simply be: Get Stuff Done.

I’ve been saying that phrase to myself several times a day for at least a year and found that it gets me pumped, focused and motivated. It’s not something that I intentionally started doing. It just became a phrase (more like a command) that I started telling myself when my list of goals started growing. I often catch myself thinking things like, “I am going to get stuff done today.” or...

MY ROUTINE DURING QUARANTINE

Apr 10, 2020

The year 2020 kinda sucks.

So far this year has seen me in the midst of a grueling job search (which sucked), the unexpected death of my father (which also sucked) and being confined to the house because of COVID-19 (which majorly sucked).

I guess another way to describe the year is simply crazy. But it hasn’t been a total loss. I did find a job that is perfect for me, and I was able to grieve my father adequately. However, I still have not been able to wrap my mind around the...
