  • Why Taking Care of Yourself Isn’t Selfish… It’s Self-Preservation

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | May 15, 2017

    thoughtful-2I find it amazing that people who are so loving, kind, and generous to others are often so hard on themselves – especially women. We keep going and giving even when there’s nothing left. Somewhere along the way, we learned that taking care of ourselves was selfish and self-centered. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth.

    It’s not selfish, it’s self-preservation. When you take the time to nurture and care for yourself, you are actually in a much better position to help others.

    It’s important to make your health, well-being, and sanity a priority. Understanding the difference between what brings you joy, purpose and passion Read more

  • 5 Essential Oils for Stress and Anxiety

    by Paula Gallagher | May 1, 2017

    essential-oilsEssential oils and diffusers are very trendy right now. They have been used for centuries to soothe and heal. Not just used to make your home smell nice, you can also use essential oils for stress and as a natural way to relieve anxiety. This is what aromatherapy is; the science and art of using scent for our health. And anyone can benefit from it.

    Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic plant extracts generally derived through steam distillation. They are much stronger than the flowers, herbs, or trees they come from. Hundreds or even thousands of pounds of a plant can go into making just one pound of its essential oil. Read more

  • Willpower

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | April 26, 2017

    willpower_cropWillpower is defined as strong determination. But sometimes as determined as we are, we struggle with maintaining the “willpower” to achieve our goals. It’s certainly not for a lack of wanting something, so what holds us back? What causes us to sabotage ourselves and prevents us from moving forward?

    One of our greatest roadblocks to success is often fear – whether conscious or subconscious. Having to deal with change, the unknown, and leaving the security of what we’re familiar with – as uncomfortable as it may be – can definitely hold us back from achieving success (however we define it).

    So, how do we overcome our fear? Read more

  • Good Grief

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | April 17, 2017

    griefWe’ve all been there. An event that you would have rather lived without. An event that kicks you so hard in the stomach that you can barely catch your breath, let alone your balance. Whether you expected it, or it seemingly came out of the clear blue sky, there are certain losses that simply take your world and not only turn it upside-down, but shake it up like a snow globe. These losses leave us in a place where we can only grieve.

    Grief is a place of the deepest sadness we can feel. Usually it’s caused by the death or the separation of a loved one. But, grief isn’t only associated with the loss of a person or a pet, Read more

  • Forgiveness is Just a Word, Until You Actually Do It

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | April 11, 2017

    thoughtfulForgiveness is just a word until you actually do it.

    It can also cover a wide range of degrees. “I’m sorry” is as much a part of our vernacular as “Good morning” and “How are you,” but we apply it to so many different types of situations. We can go from, “I’m sorry I spilled the milk,” to “I’m sorry I crashed the car,” to “I’m sorry I destroyed your life.” Within each of these situations, forgiveness asks something very different from us. Forgiveness is often a very misunderstood concept, too.

    So what does it actually mean to forgive? Read more
