How to Balance Self-Care and Family Life


When parents feel burned out, it can be harder for them to care for their loved ones or engage in social-emotional activities. This is exactly why self-care is an important pillar of healthy family life. If you’re struggling to fit self-care into your life and still be there for your family, you can find time to do little things to help yourself out. Here’s how you can balance the two.


  1. Play sports together


Experts highlight the fact that playing sports together isn’t just a way to get exercise together. It reinforces family bonds in a positive way and creates healthy traditions. It’s also a great way to decompress and get out some tension after a long day. Basketball is a great sport to play together as a family. If you’re looking to buy a basketball hoop for your home, research them thoroughly. Outside of price (you can purchase one for under $200), you’ll also want to look at how durable it is, as well as how easy it is to assemble.


  1. Chores are for everyone


Child development researchers mention that sharing chores can give kids structure and routine. This helps maintain good parental relationships. It also frees up time for the family to spend together. Get your kids and partner in on all the chores, including cooking. Do chores together as a group. This can help incentivize your family to get things done because there will be less work to do if you work together.


  1. Declutter your home


This may sound contradictory, but one of the best ways to relax is by maintaining a clean home. A messy environment can overwhelm you with too much visual stimuli, causing anxiety and feelings of guilt and embarrassment. Invite the family to help you organize one room at a time; make it fun by playing your favorite music. When it’s time to deep clean the home, give yourself a break by hiring a cleaning service. The average price of maid services in Anchorage ranges from $133 to $305.


  1. Prioritize rest


You may feel like there’s a long list of items to take care of from the moment you wake up. Making sure your body gets enough rest is an important way to reduce stress, maximize energy, and actually be more productive. It sometimes can be a family effort, but if your kids are in bed and the house is a little more peaceful, it’ll be easier for you to wind down and go to bed at a reasonable time.


  1. Try some apps


Phone apps can be used to track productivity, gauge smartphone use, or even lock a phone for a short time. This is beneficial because smartphones are one of the biggest detractors from quality family time. Turning your phones off for just a short period is an excellent way to maximize family time. Some apps also help you track habits and help you get into healthier habits and move away from the bad ones. Use your phone’s powers for good.


  1. Compliment your loved ones


Compliments can positively impact mental health. Studies have also shown that giving compliments can even positively influence immune function and promote serotonin release. They don’t have to be rare to be sincere. Regularly identify specific things you love about your family members and friends and tell them about it. If you appreciate your child cleaning their room, tell them. If you appreciate what your partner does for you, tell them.


  1. Take a walk


Walking can help people sleep better and improve heart health. It also provides a fun activity that the whole family can engage in. Take regular walks throughout the day whenever possible. If you work away from home, walk around your office building. You can walk up and down stairwells to improve your fitness. Take walks with your family as well, as walks are a calming activity.


  1. Write down one goal


Writing down a goal increases the likelihood that the goal will be achieved by improving motivation and narrowing the focus of the goal. Simply having the reminder each day is hugely beneficial. Goals can also help you identify what you really want and give you something to work on regularly.


As you spend more time with your family and find ways to do fun things together, you’ll feel better. Get your family members involved in doing chores, and set goals. Self-care isn’t just being alone; it’s finding time for the people you love.

Trusting My Intuition Leads to A Wonderful Reading

Trusting my intuition is one of the things I have been working on for several years. How many times have you thought that you should do something and then went ahead and did something else that turned out to be the wrong thing? We have all done that many times. When I get those little nudges I try to notice them and follow them.

Recently I did a reading that I just have to share with you.  It was one of those readings that really touches my heart. And it's also a lesson in trusting your intuition.

A lady called me for a reading. She needed it soon and I agreed to do it. My readings are almost all on the phone and she agreed to that. From the very start this reading seemed to violate many of the rules I have learned from other mediums and set for myself.

The lady who called was making the appointment for someone else. I don't usually like that. She was going to be present when the client was getting her reading. I don't usually like that either because it can bring in too many spirits and the one you want may have less of a chance to come through. But I liked her energy so I agreed to these things.

My Intuition Told Me to Go

A short time before her appointment I started getting the urge to go to them and do the appointment in person.  I had no idea what this was about but I was not planning on seeing people that day and had not dressed for it.

I texted the lady who had arranged the appointment and told her that I needed to come see them in person. They agreed.

When I arrived for the appointment there were four family members present. This is usually something I am not comfortable with because, again, it can bring in too many spirits. But my intuition told me it was OK and that they should stay.

I started the reading and immediately their beloved, son/brother came through. This was the person they all wanted and needed to hear from. This lovely young man who's life ended tragically short, brought through great evidence. Right away he wanted me to hug his mother.

The reading brought tears to everyone's eyes including me. I am so grateful that I trusted my intuition all along the way and did this reading the way the young man in spirit wanted me to. He was speaking to me through my intuition knowing I would trust it. He knew that doing the reading the way he suggested would be best for everyone involved.

It turned out to be the kind of reading that makes me so glad to be doing the work I am doing. I feel so privileged to be able to facilitate this kind of healing for people.

Why Is Evidence Important?

5 Reasons Why Mediums Cannot Reach Every Spirit

5 Reasons Why Mediums Cannot Reach Every Spirit

I want you to connect with your loved ones. I really do. When I am able to facilitate a good connection and you can really feel your loved one there with us the experience is exhilarating! I love being able to you one more connection and to show you that your loved ones are still with you.

But I can't always do it.  I wish I could. Try as I might there are just some spirits I can't reach.

Please know this does NOT mean that the loved one is not in the spirit world. Or that they are trapped here on earth or any other negative thing.  It simply means for any number of reasons their loved one and I are not able to communicate.

Sometimes in a reading my client really, really wants to reach a particular person in spirit and for any number of reasons I am not able to connect in a meaningful way.

So why does that happen?

1. Free Will

Everyone has free will.  Just as you cannot make anyone here do anything you also cannot make any spirit do anything. That is why I cannot guarantee that a particular spirit will come through for you. I can no more make promises on behalf of those in spirit than I can of people here in the physical world.

In this regard, I have heard people say things like "I know my loved one would mention X". My response to this you are making assumptions. You don't know that. There may be a reason they don't. It may fall into one of the categories listed below as well.

2.Radio dial

Many mediums liken mediumship to a radio dial.   Mediums work in a given range of vibration frequency much like a radio dial receives radio transmission within a certain range of frequency.  People in the spirit world can communicate within a certain range of frequency.  If the mediums frequency does not match up with the spirit person's frequency then they can't communicate.

3. The Medium's and the Spirit Communicator's styles Do Not Match

Have you ever experienced trying to talk with someone and all you can come up with is awkward small talk? Then you start a conversation with someone else and you feel like instant best friends with no problem communicating?

It's like that with spirit people too.  Sometimes we mediums just get along better with some spirit people than with others. I find that if a person was a good communicator when alive then he usually makes a good communicator as a spirit too.

4. Experience

Usually the more experience you have with any skill the better you are at it.  Mediumship works the same way.  The more experienced the medium the more spirit people he or she can communicate with and the better they are at receiving and interpreting messages.  That's why it is important that mediums continue to hone their skills with meditation, practice, classes and sitting in mediumship circles.

I still take classes, and do as many readings as I can and do a special meditation every day to enhance my abilities.

5. Unknown Reasons

There are some things that it is just best for us to not know.  Sometimes a spirit person doesn't come through or doesn't want to connect and I really don't know why.  When this happens I like to offer my clients another time to connect.  I do want to make the connections for you that you want.

I find that I can typically connect with most spirits that my clients want to connect with. However, I also find that not all connections are really great. On average I find that about 10%-25% of connections are really great.  I find that 50%-70% are pretty good and 10%-25% are really not good at all. So usually in a given reading I will have one great connection and a couple that are good and one where I barely get any information at all.

I hope this post has answered some of your questions.  Thank you for reading.

What Are Ghosts?

Let's talk about ghosts.

What is a ghost?

There are two different types of ghosts -  those with consciousness and those without consciousness.

Ghosts Without Consciousness

These are energy imprints.  They are not spirits with an awareness of their environment or what is going on around them and they do not interact with you in a conscious way.  Ghosts like this are rather like left over energy. They are not true spirits in the way we think of a spirit as basically being a person without a body.

My guides explained it to me by showing me that it was similar to listening to recorded music or watching a DVD. The action has already been recorded.  The band isn't in your home playing for you. Yet you are hearing them play.  It's only a recording.

Similarly, some ghosts are just an energy recording.

This type of ghost is pretty common. It's the 'ghost' you see walking down a hall in an old building that doesn't acknowledge you. Or it's the spirit that always appears by the side of the road at the same day and time.

Ghosts With a Consciousness

This type of ghost is a true spirit and is aware of its environment and does interact with you. We often refer to them as earth-bound spirits. But this is a misnomer because there is no such thing as a spirit being trapped on the earth plane.  Although, some spirits choose to exist this way. But everyone has free will and they are NOT trapped.

Spirit people have many reasons for staying on the earth plane longer than is normal. Usually it has to do with being too attached to things that happened in their physical life and they aren't ready to let go.

Perhaps they don't want anyone living in their house. Or they feel they need to care for their loved ones still here. Maybe they haven't accepted that they are dead and are trying to let their loved ones still on earth know that their consciousness has survived.

I read a story* about a woman who discovered through hypnosis that she had existed as a ghost for four years after being left by her lover.

Most of the time when people see a spirit it is the spirit of a loved one who they are missing. They call it a ghost. So in this sense, the words 'ghost' and 'spirit' are interchangeable.

I think of all the ghosts with a consciousness as just simply 'spirits'.

So I hope this clears up any misconceptions you may have about ghosts.
