Willing to Be Me

Posted by Robin Berg on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, In : Strategies 

Willing to Be Me

There is a great quote by Sabrina Ward Harrison, “If you’re not yourself, who will be?”  It really resonates with me.  I realize that there’s a really strong likelihood that who I am and who you are, are individualized, unique creations, designed for a special life, if we are willing to go for it.  It’s become clear to me that to be myself, I actually must have courage, I must be willing to risk being seen, willing to do some things that fall outside of the “norm...

Falling Out of Overwhelm: Part One

There are innumerable times in our lives when things feel, well, too much.  Too much to do, too much to think about, organize, coordinate, etc. and suddenly we find, we've fallen into overwhelm.

Here are a few simple steps to allow yourself to fall back out of overwhelm again...

Stop the Madness
Before you can do anything, you must grab hold of the wheel and put the brakes on. It may feel like everything is in “have to” mode, but it is up to you to pause you...

Setting up Support to Thrive: The Importance of Ease

Setting up Support to Thrive: The Importance of Ease

After coaching  for 10 years, I’ve found that while clients are in transition to living the life they love, support is essential.  Support takes a variety of shapes, whether specific types of people, teams, systems, environments, or activities—all help clients to thrive.  We were not meant to do it all by ourselves!  And for me, it’s got to be easy—so easy that I don’t have to think about it; that it feels somewhat effortless and...

For the Fun of It: Laugh!- March 2002

Posted by Robin Berg on Friday, April 16, 2010, In : Wellness 

Remember When?
Do you remember a time you felt truly happy, carefree and maybe a bit silly? Hopefully it was fairly recent and if not you might want to consider "practicing" that playful side of yourself. Dr. Andrew Weil states, “Children laugh around 400 times a day compared to only about 25 times for adults.” How amazing is that?

Some Options for Joy:
Talk to Strangers
Anyone who has spent time with me knows that I talk to just about everyone — strangers, checkout clerks, janitors, ever...

Your Ideal Career-- Doing your Best Work

Your Ideal Career — Doing Your Best Work
February 2002

Loving Your Work
An essential part of living a “whole” life and being “healthy” is your career. Being that once you begin a career you spend anywhere from 24 to 60+ hours a week (we’ll talk about number of hours later!), your career is a vital piece in the Big Picture of your life.

Imagine sleeping comfortably in your bed and waking to the alarm thinking, “Time to go to work”. Are you motivated, depressed, excited? (Of cours...

Balancing Your Mood: Part 3, Your Mind
January 2002

Underestimating Attitude
You have probably heard, more times than you’d like, “attitude is everything”. And though it may not be everything, it has a huge impact on your life and the world around you. If you see the world as an awful place, it is. If you see the world as a beautiful and hopeful place, it is.

Getting Grounded and Focused
What does this even mean? Can you think of a time you spoke to someone and they spoke quickly, ...

Balancing Your Mood: Part 2, Exercise
December 2001

Beta-Endorphin and You
Aside from the visible benefits of exercise (toned muscles, weight loss), there are chemical benefits too. Beta-endorphin. You might be wondering what is Beta-endorphin? In non-scientific terms it is a naturally occurring chemical that is released and makes us feel good. Ever hear of the “runner’s high”? Beta-endorphin. “When your beta-endorphin is low, you feel depressed, impulsive . . . you may be touchy and tea...

Balancing Your Mood: Part One

Posted by Robin Berg on Friday, April 2, 2010, In : Wellness 
It seems it's always a good time to remember the food/mood relationship.
Here's a refresher from a few years back...seems it still holds true!

Balancing Your Mood: Part 1, Food
October 2001

You’re In Charge of Your Mood
I never used to think about my mood. I took it for granted that a mood simply was. Now I realize that most of my emotions, energy highs and lows correlate with my food, thinking patterns, and exercise. The trick is taking responsibility and knowing that I can control my mood.
