Synergy Success E-Zine, December 2014


Keep it Simple. Keep it Honest. Keep it Real.  




A Wholehearted Welcome to YOU and our awesome community of professional women who are
busy creating balanced success through a restorative lifestyle by Working Smart, Playing Hard, and Resting Well--as best we can--in the midst of life's challenges.


With the Holiday festivities in full swing, there's lots on my agenda,( and I bet on yours too?)

Like many of us, during extra busy times I have a tendency to make things more complicated than they need to be.

Then I get overwhelmed and stuck going in circles. (you too?)

In my experience, peacefully productive days start with a meaningful morning practice, which includes creating an affirmation--or positive phrase-- to focus on. Since Extreme times call for Extreme measures (ha ha!), one crazy-busy day last week I chose a question instead of a phrase as my affirmation.  

It worked so well I've dubbed it my "mantra for the month."

So every morning, and throughout each day, I intentionally ask..."How can I keep it simple?" which is really helping me stay calm, be more present to loved ones, and to work smarter (not harder!)

Since there's no time, energy, or money to waste, Why Complicate Things? 
  • Missing someone? Call
  • Wanna meet up? Invite
  • Have Questions? Ask
  • Want to be understood? Explain
  • Don't like something? Say it
  • Want something? Ask for it
  • Like something? State it
  • Love someone? Tell them
Give this a try for yourself and let me know how it works--and please share other ways you've found to keep it real this holiday, OK?

Sure hope I get to wish you a Happy Holiday at a "Synergy Success Circle" this week, or perhaps at one of the "What's Draining YOU?" lunch workshops on Friday or Saturday. 

Remember, We only have one life. 

The 2014 Christmas season will never roll around again. 

Let's keep it simple!
