Tap into the Power of Nature

College students can have very stressful lives. When I was in college, it was commonplace for “information overload” to send us into some of the deepest hours of sleep because we were so worn out from all of those hundreds of chapters of reading material! On many occasions (too many to count), I fell asleep while reading, only to wake up and discover that I lost a lot of valuable study time! During those days, we didn’t use a lot of resources for help. We just “pushed” our way through it … [Read more...]

Harvest Time: Getting a Return on Your Investments

To have a harvest is to have a return, a yield, a collection of some sort. It also implies that we give, express or put something "out there" and, by nature, receive something back. This past summer, my family planted seeds in our garden. We gave our effort in the form of time, physical labor and patience with a positive expectation that we would receive something in return - a harvest of various vegetables. Question for Reflection: When you give your time, effort and energy to your partner, … [Read more...]

What is Self Compassion?

Self compassion is a key component of living a Growth in Motion!! lifestyle. It is an important aspect of self empowerment. Growth in Motion™!! = Self Care + Self Empowerment + Self Knowledge + Self Direction The ‘self’ implies a focus on “me” or “I” and can be defined as our personality, identity, or character. Within the word compassion is the word compass. There is also the word passion. When I think of the word compass, I think of a device with a magnetic needle that helps me determine my … [Read more...]

What’s Your Definition of Success?

Does this question enter your thoughts often? If so, what comes to mind for you – happiness, a good paying job, the American dream, a healthy family? If not, how would you define success for your life? Recently, I visited the University of Nebraska – Omaha and presented Healthy Relationships 101. I shared with students that one of the most important relationships they will have in life is the one with themselves. I also shared that healthy relationships begin with self care. Self care leads … [Read more...]

Feeling pressured in your college life?

Are you engaging in authentic relationships?

To be authentic is to be real, transparent, truthful, or honest. Within the word relationships are the words "relate" and "ship." Some synonyms for "relate" include communication, link up, share, connect, and cooperate. When I think of the word "ship," I think of a boat, cruise ship, vessel, or something that carries or transports people or goods. As I reflect upon all of these separate ideas of the words authentic relationships, I am humbled because the underlying meaning of these words is all … [Read more...]

College overload and exhaustion? De-stress with Quick Coherence

That time has come again for end of semester final exams and the competition to earn high grades is fierce. After all, there are only so many top grades that professors can distribute when working with the ‘curve!’ The hope is that everyone does well so that the curve is set higher. But what if most people, including yourself, don’t perform as well as you wanted to? At that point, what happens for you? Do you feel like a failure; do you say “I gave it my best shot,” do you walk away feeling glad … [Read more...]

How Does Growth in Motion™ Impact My Life as a College Student?

Growth is development, evolution, progress, increase, expansion. In short, it means CHANGE. To be in motion means to move, act, engage in an activity, or to shift something. I define “growth in motion” as a phrase that describes a way of being in relationship with oneself. It is a process of living consciously. This means you have to take a very close look at your habits and authentically evaluate which ones are overdue and need to move in a different direction. To be self-regulated, to … [Read more...]

Avoiding daytime fatigue

Your day starts on the “right” side of the bed and you go to classes feeling energized and ready to take on anything. You are alert, prepared, and focused and all seems to be flowing smoothly. As the day progresses, you begin to slow down, start to yawn, creativity takes a “back seat” and you feel like you could go home and crawl into bed. And somewhere around 3-4pm, it hits you like a ton of bricks. You feel depleted and now your thoughts are racing inside your head saying “I don’t feel like … [Read more...]
