7 Ways to Relax During College – Especially During Final Exams

Felicia Harlow at UNG-Oconee

Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking to students at the University of North Georgia – Oconee. My topic was Heart-Centered Relaxation 101: A Meditation Primer for Stress Management during College. Students were finishing their last week of classes prior to finals so the university brought me in to help students find quick and simple ways to relax and cope with their stress. They walked away with more than 21 tips to get through it all. Here are a few comments from students about what they … [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...]

Take care of yourself for healthier relationships

Felicia Harlow - Mutual Ground Domestic Violence Center

Healthy relationships start with a focus on self-care and well-being. That is the philosophy I shared with Voorhees College students during a visit to their campus. When I asked the question, “What is most important to you in your relationships?” I received answers like trust, communication, love and respect. The idea of practicing self-care as a foundation for healthy relationships appeared to be a new paradigm for them. I can understand, though, because several years ago, it became a new … [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...]

My 80 Year ‘Young’ Gift

Felicia Harlow - My 80 Year Young Gift

On March 12, 2011, I met an 80 year old woman who didn’t look a day over 50!

What is Radical Personal Accountability?

Felicia Harlow - Radical Personal Accountability

To be accountable means to be in charge, responsible, or mature about your life experiences. And in the context of ‘radical personal accountability,’ to be radical is to be an activist, innovative, and uncompromising about your total well-being. When you agree to live a Growth in Motion!! lifestyle, you are consciously agreeing to accept radical personal responsibility. It means you commit to looking inside yourself to understand the deeper meaning of your upsets and tendencies to blame … [Read more...]

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

Felicia Harlow - IAM-U Graduation

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...]

Time to ‘Do Nothing.’

Felicia Harlow - Why Time to do Nothing

Self care is a key element of the Growth in Motion process… and 'doing nothing' is a key element of self care, better known as ‘rest.’ When school is out there are no more final papers and exams to worry about, it's a time to relax and rejuvenate yourself before returning to school. After all, you've been working hard over the past year. But, if you think like I did while I was in college, you may have scheduled a lot on your ‘to-do list’ for the summer. Or you may be spending lots of energy … [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. When I think of the word compass, I think of a device with a magnetic needle that helps me determine my … [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...]
