Simplify Your Life - 5 Ways

Simplify Your Life - 5 Ways | Coaching Leaders |
The term simple living tends to conjure up thoughts of simple pleasures and a break from the rush of life. But getting from full capacity to a more simple life is more pragmatic than just slowing down.

What if someone offered you 5 proven ways to simplify your life, would you stop what your doing and listen to what she has to say? Or would you walk away?

I'm betting you'd take a moment to listen and want to find out how you might simplify your hectic life.

Here are the 5 ways to start you on the path of less tense thoughts and muscles.

1. Declutter and organize your life
2. Unplug from your electronics
3. Control you finances
4. Don't take things personally
5. Share your talents

Yep, that's the list and if you want to know more just click the picture or the title and Cristin Frank will expand on the list with some good common sense.

How Modern Life is Making us ANGRY

How Modern Life is Making us ANGRY | Coaching Leaders |


According to reports in The Telegraph, the energy and drive that originally focused humans on basic survival, such as food and shelter, have become unfocused and secondary in the 21st century.


This is because people are largely provided for, leaving the motivations that fuel basic survival without an appropriate outlet.


Humans evolved to become angry in certain situations because the emotion motivates us to want things. For example, hunger makes us angry by raising our serotonin levels, prompting us to look for food.


Anger also played an important role in helping early humans live together in social groups, by warning individuals when their behaviour was upsetting others.


'The red mist of rage helped our ancestors survive,' Dr Mann claimed

Nice model for anger management.

A psychologist at the University of Central Lancashire has suggested the anger that was once key to our survival has now become targeted at trivial annoyances.

This is one area that I can help with. I offer a variety of therapies which will help to reduce your stress levels and give you the much needed time out even 10 minutes and I offer these therapies not only in a variety of clinics but due to the lack of time people have I can come to the office environment. During the therapy you remain fully clothed and I work with you to cause the least disruption to the work being carried out. As little as 10 minutes can make a huge difference to a persons life. We think we have not got the time but can you really afford for the negative effects of stress to build up?
WorkplaceIncentives's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:19 PM

Stress is often seen as the result of an event. The event causes stress. However this isn't true. We as individuals have the ability to control whether or not we 'get stressed'. It is in fact our perception of any event or 'thing' that may cause us to be stressed. Should we perceive an event in a positive light or choose to frame the event constructively, we can prevent ourselves from becoming stressed. As you're reading this insight you might be thinking that it may seem like we're stating the obvious and yet so many people, probably including yourself, get stressed on a regular basis...

My thoughts

After reading this article, I find the mini-relaxation plans suggested are a huge help when your running on little to no time and just need a quick breather. The relaxation plan in this article goes into detail about what can you do to relieve some stress in 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, etc. which can be very helpful even trying these plans in between classes on account of the fact school can be very stressful at times. What I enjoyed the most about this article is the 2 minute relaxation plan, where I'll be taking 1 deep breath for every number I count down too since deep-breathing helps relieves stress and some of the bad toxins in your body.

5 Workplace Lies that Create Stress

5 Workplace Lies that Create Stress | Coaching Leaders |

“How do you deal with stress?” This staple of the job interview question bank made me ask myself “where does stress come from, anyway?” The answers I found mostly pointed to dishonesty of one kind or another. Get honest with yourself and your boss and you might kiss much of your stress goodbye.
