    Five Ways to Replace Holiday Stress With Holiday Fun

    The holidays are notorious for creating stress, as people try to manage their usual activities with the increased tasks that go along with celebrating the holidays, such as shopping for perfect gifts and making plans to entertain family.  If you add being a perfectionist to the mix then you’ve got the perfect recipe for a stressful holiday.   Additionally, when  you consider that according to the American Psychological Association, more women on average say they feel more stressed than men, you may want to pay attention to those things that are creating stress for you and make the necessary adjustments.
    In this episode, PK shares five suggestions for eliminating stress from your holidays and replacing it with fun instead.  Take a listen.

    Why Learning to Love Yourself First Can Be Critical To Your Mental And Physical Health With Iselyn Hamilton Austin

    Why Learning to Love Yourself First Can Be Critical To Your Mental And Physical Health With Iselyn Hamilton Austin

    For many women, loving  themselves first does not come naturally.  In fact, many women have to learn to love themselves because they have been socialized to believe that putting their own needs first is a selfish act.  As a result, many women put everyone’s needs before they own, always talking about their dreams and desires in the future saying thighs like, “When the kids get older:” “When I get that promotion that I‘ve been working so hard for.”  “When I  have the time.”  “That’s when I will travel, or follow my passion, or start that nonprofit organization.”   The irony is that oftentimes, a life-altering medical diagnosis, like cancer, is often the catalyst that can throw them headlong into living the lives they had been planning for, as they face their own mortality. 
    In this episode Iselyn Hamilton Austin shares how her breast cancer diagnosis taught her to make herself not just “a” priority, but “the” priority!   Iselyn describes her cancer diagnosis as “...like joining a sorority you never asked to be in.”  You’ll want to hear how breast cancer became the catalyst for her work not only in the nonprofit space, but her work with other women who received similar diagnoses.  According to Iselyn, she became the go-to person for these women, teaching them how to not just “survive” with cancer, but to “thrive”.  Take a listen to this heart-warming story of not just someone who survived breast cancer but who is thriving, and exploring other avenues of creative expression.  In fact, Iselyn is now the author of two children’s books.
