Tuesdays with MOJO / Send out some healing thoughts

stress, relationshipMarjorie Spitz Rento1 Comment

I’m not an anxious person by nature, but sometimes anxiety creeps up on me and takes me by surprise.  It may rear its ugly head around an upcoming business or personal event, or even a big birthday.   When it happens, I typically get anxious days or even weeks in advance.  Then, it eases suddenly and by the time I reach that anticipated moment, I’m calm and totally fine.

Everyone deals with anxiety differently and I guess that is how my body processes it.  Some people are even anxious about being anxious, which can make the cycle worse!  

Studies show that worrying can actually be helpful when it encourages you to take action and resolve something.  However if you become preoccupied with negativity and worse case scenarios, it can become a bigger problem and even paralyzing.  Am I making you anxious just thinking about it?  I hope not! 

Tuesdays with MOJO / Take a moment for a breath

breathe, stressMarjorie Spitz Rento2 Comments

Last night I had the pleasure of sharing my workshop with about a dozen friends.  All fabulous, successful, intelligent, beautiful and kind women (and Bob) who I greatly respect.

I presented the workshop with the goal of gaining feedback as I get ready to launch a corporate wellness program. 

The workshop centers around how small changes make big differences and the MOJO Makers™ that one can implement on a daily basis toward reaching a higher goal. I define a MOJO Maker™ as an inspirational, simple action that creates a “ripple effect”, starting one on a path toward achieving a higher goal, ultimately leading to vitality, healthfulness and happiness.  Together we went through some key MOJO Makers™.

In the beginning of the session, I had participants do a breathing exercise (MOJO Maker™ #1).
