Pause the Chaos

Have you paused during your busy day to do the NeuroMindSHIFT™ Super Hero Pose that I shared with you last week?

Turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, and on and on the list can go! My family gathered around the table this Thanksgiving and yet it was quite a feat to get everything ready at the same …

Taking Care of You

Take a Break! I think many times we are harder on ourselves than anyone else. This drive of self-inflicted perfection, striving to meet idealistic expectations, and raising the bar higher and higher creates an enormous amount of stress and anxiety. I know after my accident I couldn’t perform as I used to. Even daily routines of meals, self-care, and simple …

Beating Anxiety

Overcoming the Anxiety of Difficult Days ​​​​​​​ Many of you likely saw my FaceBook posts about being in Ottawa on International Women’s Day speaking to 500 women.

4 Simple NeuroMindSHIFT™Tips to SHIFT Belief

Recently I have had a hard time taking action. I lack the confidence in my decisions and because of this I hesitate.  Part of the problem is that there are so many decisions to be made that affect so many people.

Become steady, calm and emotionally strong!

“Souper Hero Sharon” One of the hardest things for me to do after my accident was to let go of the person I was. She seemed like a super hero to me.

Chaos of Mental Health

The chaos of mental health challenges affects everyone. Whether it impacts a loved one, or yourself, it causes uncertainty, emotional storms, and loss of inner peace. My journey through the acquired brain injury, the diagnosis of being “completely disabled”, and the challenges of the post-concussion syndrome created chaos, depression, and severe anxiety for me. Yet as I look back at my journals, I …

Well at least of official summer, that is until the kids are back in school and we begin the fall routine. Chaos ensues for those of you who are sending wee ones to school, or teens to high school, or young adults off to …

Calm in Times of Change

Don’t let it get you down! My daughter Megan has taken over the posting of my blog and emails. It’s caused us both a wee bit of anxiety and a bit of frustration but change tends to create that. But we haven’t killed each other yet! Lol! I tend to become frustrated and anxious much faster than Megan. She remains calm even though I am about …
