Breaking patterns.

Can you recognize your own patterns?

I have been fascinated by patterns for a while now. 

When you are able to see the same situations play over and over again in your own life, and you wonder; why is it that life sends me the same story time after time?

“I always end up with a boss that has no boundaries” or, “My partners always take me for granted” or, “Every time this happens, I feel anxious”.

It’s like no matter where you go, there you are.

I had to write this before a date with my husband…

When would you rather work on things? (business, marriage, health, finances, etc…) when it’s “sunny” or in the middle of a storm?

I know the answer for me was not the storm.

I know I want to work on things while it’s sunny so that when the storm comes, I’ve got plenty of energy, resources and vitality to ride the waves of the storm.

I also know working on things while it’s sunny is fun, light and easier.

How to improve your sleep.

Sleep, is a big subject of conversation in my coaching calls and to be honest, within myself.

In order to determine how a patient is doing psychologically, a therapist asks about their sleep. Because the sleep is the reflection of the emotional body.

Not surprisingly, when a person is going through high levels of stress, emotional turmoil, grief, change, health issues, etc., the sleep tends to suffer.

Olga’s curated Christmas gift guide

I am passionate about giving. I also love sharing the things I love having, using, reading in my life and I decided that this year I would share with you some of my favourite things in case you are looking at gifting yourself something nice this Christmas.

These also make amazing gifts for those special in your life. I believe the best gifts to give are those I would love to receive!

Here is my curated gift guide:

You are enough.

What if you could show up into your own life as mom, as a professional, as a wife, as a human, fully excited and with a strong sense that you are doing enough in each of those areas?

 With full conviction that you are enough.

 Despite what your perfectionist mind tells you, the truth is that it can be possible. 

Complaining isn’t problem solving…

Stop complaining.

We all think we don’t do it until we realize we totally do it.

I was coaching one of my Being of CEO clients and she was so surprised to realize that what she thought was “communicating her frustrations” was nothing more than plain complaining. 

We spent the session learning together why she was so attached to complaining as a mechanism to deal with her frustrations.

Dear over-doer…This one is for you.

The reason you feel like crap despite the green smoothies, the salads, the motivational podcasts and the positive phrases you read to yourself every day is simple.

You are stressed.

Not the kind of stress that has you yelling at people, feeling rushed,  and intolerant to the smallest of things. Not that kind of stress.

What you have, is the kind of stress that is chronic.
