Setting Healthy Boundaries:
The secret to happiness
Thursday, January 28, 2016
6:30pm – 8:00pm
at Intuitive Psychology, PLC
Scottsdale, AZ

Sometimes we may find ourselves agreeing to do things that we really do not want to do, taking on problems that are not ours, or tolerating rude behavior because we would rather avoid conflict than stand up for ourselves. Having clear boundaries, those personal lines that mark the things for which we are responsible, is crucial to a healthy, balanced life. Problems tend to arise when we forget when to say yes, and how to say no. And the good news…it’s not nearly as difficult to do as you might think…and the rewards are great. In this 90 minute interactive workshop you will learn how to start the new year off right, strengthening your personal boundaries in your every day life for a happier, healthier you! Come connect with others and learn the secret to a happy, healthy life…

When life gets busy we can forget to take care of ourselves. When that happens, the mind, body and spirit has a way of reminding us that we better pay attention…sometimes we feel stressed, empty, ill, overwhelmed or just plain exhausted. Why not make a point to take some time for yourself and brush up on strategies that will help you live the happy, healthy life you strive for. In August, learn how to find balance in your life during stressful times. In September, discover the importance of setting healthy boundaries at work and in your personal life. And coming in October… learn how to meditate with ease, with a simple course on meditation. The best part, is that it’s fun!

We all live busy lives in one way or the other. We spend much of our time focusing on what we feel we need to get done and in the process we often overlook ourselves and end up ignoring our own needs. We tell ourselves we’ll attend to our needs when we have the time…and then the time somehow never comes. Sometimes if we over-focus on taking care of those around us for too long, we actually let go of what’s important to us and can even become resentful of doing what we chose to do in the first place. In essence we unintentionally give up our personal power. Without meaning to, we become victim to our circumstances and our lives. But when we wake up to what we are doing and remember that we have a choice in not only what we do, but how we think, we can rebalance our lives and regain our personal power.

Happy_Ninja__Teddy_Bear_by_KamiNeko98The holiday season is here. For many of us it is a time of love and laughter with friends and family…and for some it is a time to face difficult family dynamics without losing our cool…or our minds. This is the season when people come into my office asking how to handle this mother-in-law, this uncle, this sister-in-law, and that brother. And it is the time when I remind these searching souls to look at this as a wonderful opportunity to practice compassion. I encourage each of them to become a compassion ninja. Ever at the ready to take a breath, not take the hurtful word personally, to step aside from the struggle, and to instead find the compassion in their hearts for the person they are having difficulty with. Let’s be clear, I am not saying that we don’t have a right to be annoyed at rude and unkind comments. What I am saying is that we have the ability to choose our response to any circumstance…and if we can choose a response that serves us best, we are the better for it. When we are able to look beyond the hurtful words, and understand that quite often there is simply human hurt and upset that really has nothing at all to do with us lurking beneath those words, we may find the compassion we need to let the words roll off our shoulders, allowing us to step aside from conflict and keeping our holidays peaceful.

The Compassion Ninja code:

  1. I set my compass for compassion – Before you head out to your holiday gathering, take a few moments to sit quietly and set your intention for the day. Will you carry compassion in your heart? Will you remain nonreactive? Will you focus on the love in the room? Whatever you choose is fine, just set your compass in that direction before you go.
  2. I stay calm and nonreactive – Remind yourself that your response is your choice. Don’t be goaded into joining arguments you don’t want to join…the choice is always yours. Simply saying “I love you too much to argue,” or smiling and changing the topic can slide you past an argument that you just don’t need to have.
  3. I Breathe – Before, during and after the party. Breathing gives us a chance to pause. It starts a physiologic process that helps keep us calm and focused.
  4. I remember that I am not alone – Remind yourself that you are part of the human race…at this very moment you are a member of a larger group of compassion ninjas ready to face misbehaved family members! You are not being punished, merely having a fully human experience.
  5. I hold onto my joy – Don’t take anything too seriously. Have fun and enjoy your holiday! When we let ourselves get too worked up in anticipation of upset, upset is just what we will find. So focus on what you love and enjoy about your family and friends…and love and laughter is what you will find.
  6. I practice compassion – Try starting your day with a simple, brief compassion meditation. The more you practice, the more the neural networks in your brain change, allowing you a quicker, easier, more automatic compassionate outlook…kinda like going to the brain gym!
    Take a look at this brief 7 minute guided meditation I made for you on YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoFpJCdJfyw

Here’s hoping your holiday season is filled with the light of compassion and loving kindness.

Let your intuition be your guide,

nrm2185-i1Will you allow your life to take shape as it unfolds in front of you? Making choices as new situations, new opportunities, new obstacles arise? Or will you spend your energy making the things you want happen? Envisioning your life as it should be, striving for perfection? Trick question, isn’t it? Be honest with yourself, which did you choose?

So many of us were raised to force our way through life. If we wanted “it” we were taught to go out and get “it”, no matter what.  Pull yourself up by the boot straps and make it happen. That way worked well at one time in our very recent history. Fledgling nations like America were built on this type of determination and perseverance. It isn’t a bad thing, it just doesn’t seem to work as well as it used to anymore. Why?

Everything changes with time. At some point, a significant shift seems to have occurred. Our world sped up. We became  so busy and overloaded with stimulation and information coming at us from all directions at every moment,  that now, if we get caught up in a struggle with everything that comes our way, we will live our life in struggle…and we will suffer for it. We will get stressed, we will get unhappy, our relationships will come apart, our bodies will get sick and our culture will erode. The make-it-happen approach was for a slower paced time in our history. In this high octane world of ours, we now need to make every moment count. How do we do that? We get smarter, we become aware, we focus on the present moment where we have control over our choices, and we go with the flow. With eyes wide open we allow life to happen and we make purposeful choices about how we want to engage with it. Instead of struggling and forcing, we surf, we dance, we ride the waves, we move with the pace of our lives without resistance. Sometimes easier said than done, for sure, but with practice, the rewards are great. A life of less upset, greater ease, improved health, happy relationship, and culture that flourishes and ultimately more accomplishment. If we aren’t wasting our time on the struggle, we have more time to enjoy, connect and grow.

Practice. It will get easier and easier. Take time to meditate. Take a yoga or a tai chi class. Concentrate on the sky and the trees and the rocks as you take your morning walk. Breathe and pay attention to that simplest of life sustaining activities. When life happens to you, choose your path wisely. Think about who you want to be… and how that choice fits into the vision of who you are moving towards becoming and where you are going. I’m not saying it will be easy. Some of the choices in front of you may be hard ones. But if they are the right ones for you, they will lead you away from struggle and into growth.

Look, life is gonna come at us no matter what. Our choice is how we will engage. Will we struggle and force our way through it, or will we have the grace to sit back, observe, follow our intuition and enjoy the ride it takes us on?

What do you think?

Be happy and well,
