The American way of life is all about productivity and the value we place upon it.  This generally means how many hours you spend at the office, how many things you crossed off your to-do list, projects you completed, goals accomplished.

Another way of being ‘productive’ is by doing nothing. When used in correct proportion and at the right time, it can be the most productive thing you can do – that’s the reason why we should give ourselves a snow day at least once a month, regardless of the weather report!

Rest, relaxation and leisurely activities are productive not the least of which is because they literally recharge your batteries, an essential requirement that fuels ourselves to carry on. But more importantly, there is an ebb and a flow to our lives, and when you’re in a time of rest and dis-engagement, that’s often when the big idea, the solution to the problem, the words that you have been trying to force just appear….almost effortlessly.

You must let the ebb ebb and the flow flow. If you’re too busy doing, doing, doing, thinking, thinking, thinking, then there is no room for creativity to bubble up from within or inspire from without, to discover what you really want or feel, or for you to heal.

When you do a session with me, I am able to identify your rhythm of ebb and flow, and how the whole work/life balance dance fills your world. Sometimes you might not even realize how ‘off’ you are…and that’s exactly what’s been holding you back in your career, relationships or health…so I’m here to help and look forward to working with you soon!
