I hope first and foremost that this post finds you healthy and well. Any small disruptions in a routine can cause rifts, and unfortunately, the coronavirus is causing a BIG disruption in everyone’s routine.

Take a Deep Breath

Wait! Before you go…I know that usually we hear that phrase during a time that we absolutely DO NOT want to take a deep breath.

. I get it.

In this video, I talk about how taking a deep breath might be a KEY to impulse control, focus, and working memory; all components that make up less stress and better grades. Watch more to find out!

Take a Deep Breath

Did you try this this week? Did you notice any small changes? I would love to hear from you (even if you didn’t feel any effect)!

Would you like some more tips and tools for destressing yourself (or your teen)? Please feel free to reach out by responding to this email or schedule your complimentary Destressify Yourself Session!

Also, look for an email later this week for information on new offerings for this Spring: Adulting for Young Adults (new sessions for young adults between the ages of 18-26) as well a free webinar for parents: Hands on Parenting, Hands-off Homework.

Wishing you a wonderful, healthy, and stress-less week!



Where Are My Keys?

When I was a young(er) adult I was constantly misplacing my keys. Rather than hide behind the joys and frustrations that the role that keys have played in my life, I thought that it might be more fun and productive to share with you how they have become another protagonist in my life (and perhaps help you at the same time). Without further ado…I introduce to you: My Keys.

Is there a habit that you’ve fallen out of and then been able to get back into? Tell me about it!

Would you like some help creating some consistency? Please feel free to email or schedule a complimentary Destressify Yourself Session!

How Do I Get My Parents to Listen?

Happy Monday!

It’s been awhile (more on that next week)!

In this week’s video I discuss how kiddos can get their parents..well, off their back. Do you ever feel like your parents are nagging? Ever wonder what would help? Parents, do you ever feel like you are nagging?

In this video I share how, as a teen you might get your parent to listen to you a little bit more. It does involve a little bit of planning (and I share how to do that as well)–but I think the payoff might be well worth it!

Watch more to find out the deets!

As always, I’m curious if any of you tried this or would like some help with it. For more tips and tools for how to study please feel free to schedule your complimentary Destressify Yourself session!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

Paper Boxes + Learning

This weekend I had the fortunate opportunity to be on a creative retreat. Often times the idea of *doing art* makes me nervous because I don’t consider myself a *GOOD* artist, but the materials and paints were so shiny and fun that I just had to engage…I decided to learn how to make paper boxes. See how it went and how it relates to studying in the video below.

Paper Boxes + Studying

I’d love to know how you changed information around so that you could understand it better! Also, if you would like some help in building more effective study habits, please feel free to reach out!

Wishing you a stressless entry into 2020!
