Why are we stressed? Stress is the body’s normal reaction to daily events. There are several sources of stress and as many ways to react to it. Basically, stress is a human defense mechanism, but it is important to not let it take over.

On the next CHI FOR YOURSELF, you’ll hear clinical psychologist Arthur Ciaramicoli  offer therapeutic tools for fighting the anxiety, fear, and depression caused by stress. Arthur Ciaramicoli EdD, Ph.D. is the author of  The Stress Solution: Using Empathy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Reduce Anxiety and Develop Resilience.

“Stop Being Lonely” (a how-to) and 2 CHI FOR YOURSELF replays

picture of john kobikHard to believe loneliness could be a reality for many of us given that we are sooooooo connected, followed, friended, and liked. But on our next CHI FOR YOURSELF we’ll hear from someone who specializes in helping lonely folks. In fact, Kira Asatryan has been there herself and she’s put her findings into a book called STOP BEING LONELY: Three Simple Steps to Developing Close Friendships and Deep Relationships.

Be YOUR Valentine: Self-Love Before Hearts and Flowers!

Allow me some thoughts on Valentine’s Day..

Valentine's Day HeartValentine’s Day is a day meant for Love. But, it’s not a day limited to romantic love as many would tell you. It is also about self-love. It is about knowing who you are. It is about knowing that, who you are is someone worthy of love, kindness and compassion.

If you are experiencing low self-worth and low self-esteem, know that there are many others like you out there. You are not alone. Realize that you feel this way because you do not yet love yourself truly and deeply for who you are in this moment. Sure, you can always become better, but you must be kind and compassionate to who you are today, so that you may journey toward a more fulfilling life with your own support. Certainly, spread your love and care to others but don’t forget that you too need that kindness that you wish to share with others and for that you must share it with yourself as well. If others share it with you, accept it. If they don’t, not to worry. Share it with yourself and by doing that you’ll radiate it toward others. You’ll find strength if you believe in yourself no matter how hard your day, week or month has been because you can be. You always have the capacity to be loved because it starts with loving yourself and you can love yourself just as you are, because you are worth loving.

I send you all the best energies for a very Happy Valentine’s Day! As I mentioned on the call with Karen Koenig I’m working on an upcoming show that would take a look at relationships that are not working so well, and why that’s so. I’ll keep you posted as to when a booking date is finalized.

Speaking of Karen Koenig, she gave us a great interview and look at her book : OUTSMARTING OVEREATING: Boost Your Life Skills, End Your Food Problems.
