It’s almost Autumn! When the kids go back to school, it seems everything kicks into high gear. Routines are reinstated, events are scheduled and we all seem to get back to the grind, so to speak. My summer ended with a new grandson, born 4 weeks early (Aug 22) and created a very chaotic few weeks, being completely unprepared. He has quickly become the joy of my life!
What do we do when the unexpected happens, either personally or at work? Stress can really go through the roof during these times. The best course of action is to keep going, placing one foot in front of the other, doing what we can and leaving the rest, without fretting over it. Somehow what needs to be done gets done. Take time to breathe, rest your mind, and allow ample down time. It is critically important to maintain proper sleep throughout a stressful period.
For me, now it’s back to fully engaging in my business, planning and executing for the remainder of the year both professionally and personally and taking my moments to cuddle with my new grandson!
- As you are aware, I have re-branded my business and integrated corporate mentoring and training with brain health, giving my business clients well-rounded strategies to conquer anxiety, stress and sleep issues! Good brain health is good for business and keeps us healthy so we can accomplish our goals with ease.
- My office is moving!!! Yes, as of October 1, 2015, I am re-locating to 111 Waterloo St, Suite 310, London, Ontario. An official notice is forthcoming in a couple of weeks.
- Watch for the official launch of Advantage Workplace Integration toward the end of September. There will be special events and offers which I am very excited about! Along with the brand launch, I will be introducing a new affiliate program for referrals from other professionals.
Brain Health Tip
Exercise is good for the brain because everything good for the body is also good for the brain… that’s a “no-brainer”! Exercise your brain by learning something new each day. It stimulates the neuro-networks and slows down the aging process!! This can be as simple as learning the words to a song or a new game, to actually learning to play an instrument or learning a new language. The brain can change at ANY age! The “use it or lose it” expression definitely applies here.
Feed your brain! We have heard many reports that chemicals and processed foods can damage our brain, such as too much sugar, additives and artificial sweeteners. We also should focus on what TO eat, not just what to avoid. The brain is made of water, protein and fat. Along with plenty of veggies (green leafy too), be sure you drink plenty of water, eat enough protein and include healthy fats (ie. coconut oil, avocado, fish oil-omega 3). Avoid anything processed (low fat products are processed and likely contain added sugar and too much salt).
Enjoy your transition into Fall… it’s a beautiful time of year!
