Anxiety Is A Thief

quote anxiety is a thiefAnxiety is a thief. It steals our thoughts. It steals our sleep. It steals our confidence. It can even steal our libido.

Yes, there have been many studies linking high anxiety with low libido. A 2010 study of pre-menopausal women, age 18 and older, reported that stress was the culprit for 60% of them. Plus, in a study with un-medicated depressive women, 70% were reported to experience a lack of interest in sex due to their depression.

Anxiety can make your libido sluggish for many reasons.…


    Parenting Tool: How To Motivate Kids – Without Yelling!

    Parenting ToolI have a little parenting tool I’d love to share.

    Actually, it’s super little because it’s one of these:


    Yes, I’m talking about one of those teeny tiny pointy “greater than signs” – which represents when something is greater or less than something else.

    I now use that little “greater than sign” with my almost-six year old son – to motivate him to be his best self. Here’s how this “greater than sign” technique works.

    Let’s say we’re all having dinner.  …


      The Number 1 Cause Of Break Ups

      quote anger aristotleI can sum up in three “acts” the breakdowns and breakups of most relationships since the beginning of time:

      Act 1: You hurt me.

      Act 2: Because you hurt me, I now hurt you.

      Act 3: Because you hurt me, I now hurt you and so you hurt me again and so I hurt you—and downward spiraling we shall go.

      John Gottman, the famed founder of The Love Lab (a research lab where couples are studied), says he can consistently predict how long a relationship will last, not based on how well a couple gets along, but by how well a couple doesn’t get along. A relationship is only as strong as how well couples can deal with their weakest link: conflict.

        I used to be the person who saw a bald woman and thought “cancer.” But recent events have lead me to know that bald women don’t always equal cancer.

        I am bald because of alopecia.

        Until being affected by it myself, I had no idea what alopecia was. It’s an autoimmune disorder where your body thinks your hair follicles are foreign bodies and therefore gets rid of them for you – nice huh?!…


          How To Become Un-Rejectable With One Simple Yet Powerful Tool

          Un-RejectableNote: This is a guest blog by the inspiring Josh Becker

          By the time I was 17, my girlfriend and I had been dating for a couple of years. She was my first true love and we had many firsts together. Of course in my 17-year old mind I thought we could be married one day. She was about a year older than me and graduated high school. I remember taking her to University of Maryland where she would start college.…


            Be More Productive! Here’s How..

            Accountability BuddyAs a writer and designer, I spend a lot of time alone, writing and designing.

            Or rather…hopefully writing and designing!

            If I’m not in the mood to write or design a specific project on a given day, I simply need to ask my boss for a work extension.

            Since that boss is me, I’m usually granted that free pass.

            Meaning?  Since my boss is one big wimpy wuss, if I ever want to get work projects completed, I need to master the art of “inner discipline.”

            My solution? …


              Happiness Reminder: Avoid “Life Dysmorphia”!

              Screen Shot 2016-04-15 at 9.46.08 AMI recently received this old photo of me from a new client. It was taken waaaaay back, when I was in my 30’s. I’m the one in the middle with the short hair and red lipstick. My new client (the adorable one on the left in the beret) had taken this photo of us while I was on book tour for a business book I’d written. (Click here to find out more about this book!)

              I remember that book tour well.…
