Who got the biggest Piece of the Pie this week?

Slicing the PIES of Life:  

Last week’s blog asked you to look at the parts of your life as if they were slices of

A PIE.  Notice how you are taking care of  your different areas of need: Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social- Relational and Spiritual. The quality of your life is based on recognizing and attending to all  your human needs in balance. Are you eating good food in moderate quantities 3-6 times a day?  Are you moving and strengthening you body with activity?  Do you allow time for Fun, family, friends and rest?

 

Once you identified an area of your life that is not getting what it needs, would you be willing to choose one action this week to take care of that need? That action might be:

I will spend 15 minutes of quality time with someone I love each day: I will allow time to eat breakfast. I will have 10 minutes a day to sit quietly, to read or reflect on my life and connect with God.  Loving yourself and caring for yourself is your best gift to all. Today is a good day to start. How will you express that love this week?  Feel free to contact me and tell me what you now choose to do.

Integrative Stress Solutions Means What?

What are Integrative Stress Solutions?


The dictionary defines Integrate as: To make a whole by bringing all the parts together, unify.

 Integration: the organization of organic, psychological, or social traits and tendencies of a personality into a harmonious whole  

 

Christine Anne’s work is about the unity of the body systems and life. It is based on recognizing and attending to all the parts of our human needs that make up our whole being. WE do this by attending to our basic human needs. A simple way to look at these needs is as a PIE with slices.

 

Think of a warm fragrant Juicy cherry pie. Each slice with cherries and crust is one of the needs. The juice that baths and moves between all the cherries is energy.  The word Pies is our guide to remember these areas of slices of our life.  P is for physical, I for intellectual, E for emotional & energetic, S for social and spiritual (PIES).

 

As you look at your pie, your job is to slice the pieces into sizes appropriate to the needs of the day. Every day invites a new opportunity to slice your PIES of Life. How well are you attending to each of your Life slices?   To be continued next week.

Look for the Good Stuff : in Yourself

 LOOK for the GOOD STUFF and ACKNOWLEGE IT !!!  Mission Possible                                 How often do you allow a moment to look for what you have done well and then  pat yourself on the back, basking in self appreciation?   It could be something you did like a job well done, being on time, nurturing yourself with mid day r

Parenting-Look for the good stuff

Parenting seems to be a life time activity. My children are now adults. Yet I find that the principles have not changed.  Look for their strengths. Catch them in the act of doing something right and then TELL THEM !!!!  Smile, pat the back, give a big hug, brag on them to others.  The heart and esteem glow and grow in such watering and fertilizing. 

Behavior is Communication - What is the real message?

I was talking with a social worker the other day. She works with adults and chlidren in a mental health department.  She said to me: “Every behavior is communicating something.

Emotions and Pain: Can not be Rationalized.

There’s a time for talking. But you can’t do intellectualizing when there’s a physical issue and an emotional issue. Now you have seen this one a million times: Someone’s crying and someone’s trying to talk them out of it. Well you shouldn’t feel bad. I mean this doesn’t happen very often. Emotions--There’s no line between here at some point. If I’m just really sad, all I need is you to acknowledge I’m really sad--Validate.
