    Is there a Difference between Reducing Stress and Giving Up?

    in Religion

    Everybody knows that stress can kill yet many of us either don’t wish to or do not know how to reduce it.  Sometimes the attempts that some of us make to reduce our stress are often viewed by others as a form of quitting.  They say we refused to fight hard enough for something and just do not wish to take into consideration that maybe we have seen it best for us to close out that chapter and move on.  Is it because they really care or is it because they are still trying to make us live our lives as they live theirs?  No one will truly ever know because no one has the ability to tell what is truly in the hearts and minds of man, we can only make educated guesses based on our personal experiences of observation and discovery through the years.

    Liberation from Stress

    in Motivation

    Counselor Mandy (Eppley) Bird speaks with author and coach Chris Saade about the importance of liberating ourselves from stress. This is critical because of the proven medical research that stress is linked to many illnesses and diseases. Mandy and Chris cover three aspects of stress: Stress of Dissemination, Profound Stress, and Failure Stress. They offer practical tools for liberating ourselves from each of these types of stress. Stress of Dissemination is when we are doing too much – trying to meet everyone’s needs. Instead, we must focus on the essential needs that must to be met. Profound Stress is when we are involved in work, projects, organizations, etc. that are opposite to our authentic nature. When we are not in harmony with ourselves, the cost is very high. When we are aligned with our heart and our authenticity we have the best chance for good health. Failure Stress is when we are not accepting our humanity and are fighting against the authenticity of life itself. Creativity happens through waves of failures and successes. Thus, we must have both of these. Failures are guiding stars to our successes. The good news is that when we liberate ourselves from stress we can experience much more joy and pleasure!


    Chris Saâde is the co-director of The Olive Branch Center with his wife, Jessie Thompson, where he teaches courses on engaged spirituality. He has lead more than 200 psychological and spiritual retreats, and continues to serve as a personal Coach for individuals and couples. Chris worked as a licensed psychotherapist for 11 years in private practice specializing in depression and life transitions before migrating into the world of coaching, writing and teaching. He has written 2 books, 2nd Wave Spirituality: Passion for Peace, Passion for Justice and Prayers for Peace and Justice and 2 recordings with Andrew Harvey. www.theolivebranch.net

    Being a teenager today means having to handle more stress and pressure than most previous generations.  In a recent study, over 60% of teenage girls complained of feeling severely stressed.  Without the proper resources and emotional tools, young women can find themselves struggling in their daily lives.  By helping them identify the causes of their stress and learn effective ways to manage it, teens can significantly reduce the toll it takes on their emotional and physical health.


    Professional counselor Karen Rigatti discusses some frequently asked questions:


    What are the most common sources of stress for today's teen girls?


    What are some of the signs of being too stressed?


    What can parents do to help their teen if she is overly stressed?


    How can teens learn to manage and decrease their stress?

    Caregiver Stress Reduction Tips & Tools

    in Military

    As a caregiver, you may be so focused on your loved one that you don't realize that your own health and well-being are suffering. Watch for these signs of caregiver stress:



    Feeling overwhelmed or constantly worried
    Feeling tired most of the time
    Sleeping too much or too little
    Gaining or losing a lot of weight
    Becoming easily irritated or angry
    Losing interest in activities you used to enjoy
    Feeling sad
    Having frequent headaches, bodily pain or other physical problems
    Abusing alcohol or drugs, including prescription medications


    Too much stress, especially over a long time, can harm your health. As a caregiver, you're more likely to experience symptoms of depression or anxiety. In addition, you may not get enough sleep or physical activity, or eat a balanced diet — which increases your risk of medical problems, such as heart disease and diabetes. On this episode of Hope For The Warriors Talk Radio we will share stress-reduction tips and strategies.


    SPECIAL GUESTS: Military Veteran Caregivers, Colleen Saffron and Glenda Leary will talk about their experiences of being on the verge of caregiver burnout and how they were able to successfully combat caregiver burnout. Heather Moates will also guest appear on our show and share how she's found stress reduction, individuality and HOPE through creating beautiful wreaths and starting her own business.

    Converting post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth with your warrior soul

    in Lifestyle

    Those who have managed to heal and liberate themselves from their trauma with great resiliency have something in common - they all have converted post-traumatic stress into post-traumatic growth. It’s now a vital part of trauma-informed therapy and healing - this idea that one’s trauma can actually be a source of strength and resiliency, rather than just pain and suffering.


    It also happens to be something that humanity has practiced for as long as it has existed.


    It’s a life practice that is not very easy to digest at first in a society where we expect life to be pristine and perfect. But once acknowledged, it can provide measures of strength and resiliency that you never thought you had and (this is the hard part) might never have found had you not faced the trauma you faced. When you face the fiery gates of hell that your trauma has led you to, no doubt you burn with pain and suffering, but in that raging heat, the inner steel in you cures and toughens. It becomes far stronger than it ever would have been had you not gone through that experience.


    In today's episode we explore the healing process of post-traumatic growth using our warrior souls.


    We're back with yet another day in the life of the happiest guy...my name is Sri. I'm a healer, wannabe writer, failed activist turned stand up comedian, and aspiring mama elephant. And I can't stop talking...
