Do you have dreams and aspirations only to find yourself doubting your abilities?  Do you minimize or second guess your ability? Do you feel bound and stuck, and don’t know how to move past the barriers holding you in place?

Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith joined Mom of Many Hats Radio to talk about the 7 Lies women tell themselves, holding them back from fulfillment and happiness. Dr. Dalton-Smith will discussed her book, Set Free To Live Free - BreakingThrough the 7 Lies Women Tell Themselves , and shared how women can break free of mental ties that keep us from living free and living out our dreams.

In her Medical Practice, Dr. Dalton-Smith would encounter women that were looking for something to cure their malaise- a similar condition that affected many of them. Many felt unhappy, frustrated, down, and alone.  Drawing from her experience as a Doctor and as a woman and a mom, Dr. Dalton-Smith identified mental blocks- or lies, that women get caught up in. Those lies create a feeling of unhappiness and lack of fulfillment.

Lies

Among the lies that women tell themselves are:

  • Perfection
  • Envy
  • Image
  • Balance
  • Control
  • Emotions
  • Limits

Breaking Free!

Dr. Dalton-Smith also shares five stages that women can embrace to help them break free of the lies and step into freedom.

  • Illumination
  • Activation
  • Transitioning
  • Expulsion
  • Detachment

Fit in 2012!

With the new year, many people make fitness goals.  Did you?

Fitness goals are often so hard to keep.  When it comes to our fitness, it is an area that we often give up on.  It is an area that so full of choices, and we have to make the right ones, from our food, to our lifestyle, to our activity.  It gets tough sometimes, because we can’t cut out food, lifestyle, or activities.  None of them are out of sight and out of mind.  We just have to choose the healthy way. With so many options in front of us, how do we make the right choices? How do we choose to have a healthy meal instead of fast food? How do we decide to move our bodies instead of sitting on the couch?

Fitness Isn’t Limited to the Gym!

Fitness Coach Dana Neve shared her passion for fitness and health by sharing her own fitness story and fitness routine. Through the use of at home programs, she showed us that being fit doesn’t have to be done at the gym.  Through using the tools and programs available, and through having accountability to a coach or workout partner, the path of fitness is just one step away. Dana shared a wealth of information as we discussed 10 fitness facts, regarding the importance, the physical and overall well being benefits, and the ease at which we can all start a healthy lifestyle – even if we are starting from square one.

Re-frame How We See Fitness 

As a motivator and teacher of healthy living and getting the body moving,  Dana reminds us that our health and fitness is a priority that deserves a regular spot in our appointment books.  Through taking the viewpoint of food as fuel for our bodies and realizing that our fitness goals are 80%what we eat, we can re-frame how we see food – that junk food and good tasting, satisfying food are not the same thing. When we open up our minds and taste buds, we can find a whole new world of foods that give us better gas mileage in our daily living. She also shared that progress in our fitness should be measured in how we feel and in inches, not in the daily number on a scale.

Second Friday Parenting Hat, The Severson Sisters Connections 10/14/11

Have you ever had to deal with bullying issues?  Have you ever wanted to know about some tools to help prevent it?

Carrie Severson of Severson Sisters Foundation shared with us about a fantastic program to bring awareness and prevention to bullying. As a result of her own life experience and life reflection, Carrie saw a need to change the way that girls interact with girls – a way to break through the “mean girl” syndrome.  Through creative arts, The Severson Sisters program – Connections, teaches girls to embrace the “Super Girl” within, understand that as girls, we are all in this together, and that they need to treat each other with understanding and respect.

Both boys and girls are bullied. But Carrie noticed that girls often bully in a “different” way.  She saw that the dynamic in girl bullying instances, peaking in the middle school years, is often about social power and needing a place in the group.  In power preservation mode, girls often use cutting and emotionally based words and actions to find some control and status. Connections helps the girls to recognize their own value and uniqueness through using positive words, positive actions and empowering activities. They share stories and experiences to help build understanding and empathy for what others are going through and how bullying behavior impacts others.  The creative arts component of the program help the girls to express what they are feeling and experiencing in a different way than just talk – something that bullying victims are often hesitant to do.

Carrie gave us some signs to help us recognize if  a child that is being bullied or that may be engaging in bullying behavior:

  • They withdraw from social functions with friends.
  • They seem depressed.
  • They suddenly want to miss school.
  • They stop enjoying the activities they used to do.
  • They feel suddenly incapable in areas that they had been confident in.
  • If they are engaging in bullying behavior, they may have been through a trauma in another area of life.
