    How to get over the fear of leaving your first job

    Hi! :) I agree that it is indeed scary to transition from your first job. I was in the same position. Got recruited right after college in a very prestigious company but was completely drained and stressed out after 9 years of working there. I probably had the urge to move after about 5 years...

    Entrainment music

    I have recently been reading quite a bit about entrainment music as a form of music therapy that promotes stress reduction and mindfulness. Has anyone tried this form of music before?

    Transcendental Meditation

    I haven't actually taken TM as a training but have gone to a few group sessions. I found them to be very beneficial in terms of increasing mindfulness and clearing my mind. I also know that there are quite a few online training programs out there that may cost a little less than the face to face...

    Sunday Scaries

    It's great to have a self-care routine on Sunday to beat the Monday blues! :) It's definitely a wonderful idea. I think also a good thing would be to maybe try and sit with yourself and understand the reasons behind that feeling of anxiety. A lot of activities are effective in distracting...

    Cutting ties with the corporate world

    I definitely like the freedom. I have the whole day to myself to do yoga, meditate, read the books I've always wanted to read, de-stress, etc. I can sleep whenever I want to, wake up whenever I want to, choose to have a very busy day or not do anything at all. My financial back-up was in the...

    Cutting ties with the corporate world

    I am exactly at this stage right now :) I used to work for 9 years in a corporate company with amazing benefits but got tired of being so lifeless and stressed out all the time. I chose to quit about a year and a half ago thinking I would get a part-time/self-employment opportunity right away...

    Feeling Good About Yourself

    My self-love journey has certainly been a bumpy ride. I've always had my ups and downs but I have found that yoga, positive affirmations and meditation have helped me a lot in that aspect. Eating healthy also gives me a great boost because I feel it is a form of self-love versus the really junky...

    Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life, philosophical/religious facts, theories etc.

    It is great that you have a very strong and firm belief in your choice of spirituality. That being said, I think spirituality is all about acceptance of the path each person chooses to follow. A sense of humbleness that no one "knows" everything and that there are no hard "facts" is a big part...

    Negative Nancy

    Yes I completely agree. Negative self-talk is one of the most sabotaging things one can do to themselves. I never really used to monitor what goes on in my mind until recently when I moved into holistic coaching and found that I had never really been kind to myself in my thoughts. I've tried a...

    Aura Soma and Color Therapy

    Has anyone had any experience with Aura Soma color therapy? I went through a few sessions myself and felt that they were very beneficial and was thinking of actually becoming a practitioner. Does anyone have any experience of going through that path?

    Forgetting a Language

    Yea I actually have the same experience with French and found that the apps are not really aimed at getting you to that "expert" level. Something I found beneficial was to look for online language classes where the instructor actually has conversations with you. The thing about a language is...

    Spirituality and Carlos Castaneda

    I have recently begun reading a book by Carlos Castaneda, The Power of Silence, and was struck by the level of spirituality in the book. I read that there were some criticisms of Castaneda's writings as being mostly fictional, however, to me, I felt a deep spiritual connection. Have any of you...

You can also try breathing in for 3 counts, holding your breath for 3 counts and then letting it out for 3 counts...

    Hello lovely people! In my previous career as an engineer for 9 years in a corporate company, I got to a point where I was making more money than I ever imagined, but losing my relationship with my baby girl, husband and above all, myself. I was constantly drained, stressed and with an...
