College overload and exhaustion? De-stress with Quick Coherence

Felicia Harlow | College overload and exhaustion - Try De-stressing 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...]

Thank You, Clemson University!

Felicia Harlow - Thank You Clemson University

Recently, I had the opportunity to speak at Clemson University for their Annual Women’s Leadership Conference. I was surprised to see attendees ranging in age from late teens to 80 years old! It was wonderful to see the support of approximately 130 undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, and participants from surrounding colleges and universities. I want to thank Carrie Tucker and Lauren Kennedy for extending kind “southern hospitality” to this northern native! It was evident that … [Read more...]

Balance College Stress – Natural Energy Booster #2 – Listen to Your Body

Felicia Harlow - Balance College Stress - Natural Energy Booster #2

You've heard it before... “You’re not listening to me!” or “You need to listen better!” Was it a professor who says you're not getting it? A parent schooling you about the money you’ve wasted? Your roommate who's fed up with you ignoring them? Or your boyfriend trying to get you to agree with his perspective? What if  the person you're not listening to is yourself. I’m not talking about being crazy, I’m referring to the art of listening to your “inner voice.” It's the voice that says “don’t … [Read more...]

Don’t wait until you’re ‘tired of being tired’

Do you feel like you are overwhelmed and things seem to be speeding up? Are you tired of being tired? Need a break? You might be due for a “stress check up!” One of the most effective early warning signs of a mental or physical imbalance is the development of a pessimistic outlook. And once that belief takes root in us, we start to feel irritability, frustration, anger, sadness or sometimes we even lose hope or faith in ourselves and our abilities. I call it the “tired of being tired … [Read more...]

Tap into the Power of Nature

Felicia Harlow - Back to 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...]

I Am a Seed of Greatness!

Felicia Harlow with Students

A seed represents the beginning or starting point of all living things. Inside of the seed is all that is needed to grow into something magnificent. There is nothing to add, subtract or change within the seed to produce its harvest. And the most amazing part is that, given the proper conditions for growth, one tiny seed will produce so much more than itself. To be great is to be massive, to be talented, and to be important. Each and every one of us is born from a seed that already contains … [Read more...]

What is Self Compassion?

Felicia Harlow - Growth In Motion

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.
