    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

    Stress Management for Teenage Girls

    in Education

    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?

    Beating Stress, Environmental and Financial Stress

    in Health

    We're going to continue where we left off last week, dealing with the ruinous effects of stress on our bodies. There is one source of environmental stress that it nearly ubiquitous, the chemicals in the plastics of bottled water and household detergents and cleaners. We talk about how to avoid them and the problems they produce. Then we tackle the deadliest form of stress, the Number One cause of death in the US and probably the world, financial stress! 


    I believe I am one of the few Holistic Health Practitioners that addresses this problem. But if we are going to talk about health, how can you ignore the Number One killer?  How do we, the student burdened with college debt, the young family struggling to make ends meet on two salaries, the soon to be or already retired person, afraid that they will run out of money before they run out of life, make more money to eliminate the fear, worry and stress that can sicken and kill us?


    To that end, we have invited Winston Thompson to host a Seminar in Philadelphia, Pa next Saturday, the 7th of November. Winston was a Corporate CPA with one of the legendary, Big Eight accounding firms in NY, Arthur Anderson. He then left to start his own tax and accounting firm. Winston Thjompson and Co.which he has grown into one of the top tax firms in Brooklyn, NY. Winston will share his expertise and his experience in starting and running a small business, even examining Franchises,in which he is also an expert, to help fledgling business owners avoid the many misteps and pitfalls so many of us make when startingn our own businesses.

    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.
