Be More Productive, Focus With Clarity, and Feel More Confident




“Be more productive, focus with clarity, and feel more confident”


Let’s face it, most of us are stressed out and carry a lot of tension in our necks and shoulders, especially if you bend your neck over a smartphone, IPAD, IPhone, or a computer, while engaging in social media.  You may think you do not have time to relax, but I will show you some destressing tips you can use, right where you are, and in just a few minutes a day.


Stress is inevitable in our everyday life, but we can learn to manage the stress better and learn how to effectively react to our stressful situations. Things happen in our lives that we cannot avoid and we have to deal with them;


  • Regrets

  • Getting stuck in traffic and/or being late for some reason

  • Procrastinating

  • Always thinking of the negative outcomes

  • Too much time on social media and not effectively managing your time

  • Disorganization

  • Debt or lack of Money Management

  • And a host of everyday life events, we have to confront

While we can’t undo regrets, we can apologize where we need to, and go one step farther by asking, “What can I do account for my mistake”. For we all fail, but it what you do after that, which determines your success or failure.

Procrastination is a habit you can slowly turn around with a few steps each day. We put off writing a book, going on our great adventure, visiting friends and family, and so on, because we believe we can do it later. Later never comes, and before you know it, you are older, maybe wiser, less energetic, too many irons in the fire, and many more excuses on why you haven’t become or done what you had hoped to accomplish. Every time we say we are going to accomplish something and do not, it eats away at our self-esteem, and we feel less confident about who we are and what we can accomplish. Stop making excuses and start making a plan for what you want in life. Don’t have the money? Sell something; get a loan; ask for someone to invest in you and your project who believes in your work; get an extra/part time job for a season to gain startup capital; or trade for something you need. To get yourself to work on time, try laying your clothes out the night before, to allow yourself a few more minutes to fix your hair, to fight traffic, or to drop off the kids.

If you are always thinking negatively, you need to stop right now. The mind is more powerful than you ever imagined. Did you hear the story recently, of the young mother who thought she was pregnant with quintuplets, only to find out in the delivery, she was not pregnant at all ( The mind is very powerful and it reacts to your thoughts, whether real or assumed in the same manner of neurological responses. Over time you can develop hypertension with continual increased heart rate; continual cortisol increase will cause belly fat; increase stress can cause digestive issues, headaches, insomnia. When you don’t sleep well, your cells, which rejuvenate at night to help you build your immune system, will weaken, causing illnesses, inflammation, and depression from pain and exhaustion. Getting 6-8 hours of sleep is a necessity and not just a luxury. When you are constantly tired and do not feel well, your self-esteem and confidence suffers, which makes it hard to handle conflicts effectively.


My parents did not teach me about effective money management. I had to learn those skills by reading as I became older. Like most of us, my money habits, I learned from my parents. To eliminate debt, I began to use more cash and not put a lot on credit. I began to pay myself first, 10% of my earnings. You will always have bills, or one more thing you want to buy, but it is critical to start saving, even if it is just five dollars a week. When you have money saved, you will not have to borrow, or put something on credit, which you pay two or three times more in interest, when something breaks down. You can always sell something on EBAY, have a yard sale, sell to a pawn shop, pick up extra work, sell products online, and many more home based jobs to get extra money. If you know there is something you would like to buy, use one of the methods above, rather than continually take the money from your account, which you can’t afford to lose. Because once the money is gone, it is not coming back.


To confidently handle everyday stressors, I had to learn to distress with a few short methods and exercises, you can do in minutes, each day.  Qi Gong: 7 Minutes of Magic      (for Health)


  • Take a few Quiet moments throughout the day to close your eyes, and think of the happiest time in your life, and take yourself to that moment; relish the time, and savor the sights, sounds, and smells.

  • Take a few moments to yourself, because if you don’t, you cannot effectively give your time to others.

  • Find a partner to confide in. People with partners who support them and love them, tend to live longer, happier lives. Stress turned inward can create a myriad of health issues.

  • If you sit in front of a computer, IPAD, or smart phone, with your neck lowered every day, I have included some exercises to ease the tension and build the small muscles in your neck, which will ease the tension and may help with the headaches associated with keeping your neck at an angle.

       Below are some exercises to strengthen your neck muscles and to relieve tension. I hope this helps. Namaste
