EP684 – Bad Breath

We know as parents that it is up to us to teach our children how to take care of their oral health and we wouldn’t think twice to tell our child that they need to go and use some mouthwash if their breath smelled. But how do you handle it when it’s your friend, co-worker or boss? In a study by the Emily Post Institute, 75% of respondents polled said they’d want to be notified by a friend if they smelled. Working with a colleague whose breath smells can be stressful, that’s why when doing a search on “bad breath and coworker” you can find over 1.8 million sites. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Fresh Breath Day: Most workplace experts recommend that the upfront method works the best…tell the person that their breath smell today and offer them a piece of gum. You have given them a way out, by indicating that ‘today’ may mean that this is unusual or temporary and the gum lets them save face while they talk to you. If bad breath is something that you deal with on occasion, minimize foods that can increase sulphur production and stimulate bacteria like alcohol, coffee, dairy and sugars Stimulate saliva production which is nature’s breath freshener using sugar-free mints Drink lots of water Scrape the back of your tongue If it is chronic, you need to talk to your dentist about solutions that may be right for you. If you like today’s wellness tips, let me know. You can leave me a review on amazon or through your #alexa app. Discover how to take small steps towards a healthier, happier, less-stressed you by visiting my website at worksmartlivesmart.com

EP683 - Breastfeeding and Stress

I thought getting pregnant was stressful. Feeding my baby was even more stressful. It was very clear after 2 weeks that my little boy was starving and as a new mom, I was horrified. Deemed a ‘failure to thrive’ baby. He was so hungry that he could barely keep awake. I wasn’t producing enough milk to nourish my own child. At this point I thought I was a failure. My dad, who was a dairy farmer, said later that if I had been one of his milking cows, I would have been turned to steak. Humourous now…certainly not then. I now look at this tall, athletic, muscular man and it is hard to believe the rough start we had together. He is healthy and that is the ultimate goal. Breastfeeding is a healthy choice But the pressure to nurse your child should never be so great that it makes a mother feel like a failure if they can’t make it happen. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Breastfeeding Awareness Week: Nursing a baby is natural. Help moms to fe...

EP 682 - Simplify Your Life

Life can get very complicated and stressful what with all of the ‘hats’ we wear. We sometimes let others control our activities and determine our priorities. So how do we simplify it so that our life is more manageable and enjoyable and we are more resilient? Realization and acceptance can be the first steps to gaining control. Accept that it’s impossible to do it all and it’s all right if you don’t, in fact, it’s much better if you don’t. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Simplify Your Life Week: Avoid blaming others and situations – WE have the ultimate decision on how OUR time will be spent. Develop and set your priorities and say ‘No’ to those things which are not your priority. Planning and time management are essential skills. Prepare for the transition from work to home by planning your work-related activities for the next day before you leave the office. Do not over-program yourself or your family. Make the morning routine as sim...

EP 681 - Canadian Heritage Day

On one particular visit home, I learned that my grandma didn’t learn English until she went to public school. Up till then, she spoke German. I had no idea that my maternal grandma came from a German background. I had just assumed that she was English, like my grandpa. Understanding our heritage is important. I grew up in a farming family. This meant that the ‘farm’ came first and that everyone in that family was responsible to make the farm successful. Families helped each other, as more often than not, we were related to our neighbours in some way, and that conflict was put aside to get things done. Happy or not. I see a lot of conflict that happens on family farms when someone new comes into the farm family that doesn’t share those same values to the extent that the rest of the family does. These values are neither right or wrong, but unless the differences and expectations are talked about, openly and respectfully, the conflict festers and grows. So Here are today’s Hot Tip...

EP 680– Friendships Can Protect Our Health

Witmer and Sweeney found in their study that people with few ties to others had 2 to 5 times the death rate as those who had more ties. Support and connectedness can be a powerful tool in preventing illness by acting as a buffer to the effects of stress. The benefit of friendship is having the emotional support of a community during difficult times. Workplaces are also recognizing the value of support in their organizations. Effective leaders are evaluating their teams and ensuring that they reduce isolation, celebrate occasions and successes, develop trust through effective communication, deal with conflict and gossip in a direct and open way, promote a casual and friendly atmosphere, and develop a support network through human resources, an EAP or connection to community contacts. Unfortunately, many people in the workplace do not make the effort to utilize this great coping strategy and the busier we have become the easier it is to let our existing friendships go by the way-side....

EP679 - Great Friends Support Us

Our closest friends support us. They cheer for us. They cry with us. They laugh with us (and at us). They are there for us. I have a couple of ‘bestest’ friends. I don’t see them very often as we have moved far apart. But I know that I can count on them. Research shows that our social connection to our friends gives us a sense of belonging, a feeling of security and increase our sense of self-worth. They help us to deal better with the stressors in life and live happier more successful lives. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Girlfriend’s Day: Listen to your intuition – true friends give off a positive energy that make us feel good as opposed to drain us – Evaluate your friendships. Make the time – though life can get away from us we should never let our friendships get away from us – friendships take energy and time to nurture and to keep fresh. Learn to let go – our friends are no more perfect than we are. We need to ignore those imperf...

EP678 – Family Reunions

I am missing my family reunion today. Living so far away means that it is tough to make it to this family function. I have some wonderful memories of family reunions. The games that we would play. The prizes that were given out. The laughs that we would have, and the food. The awesome, glorious, delicious potluck that would follow. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Family Reunion Month: Family reunions can be a cherished tradition. But being around your family or going back to the town in which you grew up can stir up implicit memories that can automatically trigger feelings we felt in our past. No matter how mature we feel, memories of our 10 or 15-year-old selves can cause us to act like we did when we were 10 or 15. If we fail to recognize how we are affected by old emotions and negative early experiences, we run the risk of projecting our past onto our present interactions and relationships. So all of this is to say that family reunions can be...

EP677 – Friendships Matter

Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence. Sydney Smith I love my friends. They boost my energy. They make me laugh. They allow me to vent. They cheer me on. Often, we can’t get together in person. Social media has become a way for us to still stay connected. It is similar to the quilting bee of days gone by. The quilting bee was not about putting a quilt together. It was a way for the women of the community to get out from their homes and get connected. They shared, they vented, they cried, and they laughed. Social media is just like the quilting bee for when we can’t connect in person. We post about our thoughts and our situations and our friends reply back with comments and support us. Though others can comment on our writings, our pictures and our videos, there is nothing like the face-to-face gatherings of friends. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating International Day of Friend...

EP676 – Rainy Day

There is no rain in sight, which makes for a gorgeous summer day and some time enjoying nature just outside my door. But what if it had been raining? Would this add stress to your life? Do you plan for rain days when you are on vacation? Rain days can force you to make different decisions on how you are going to spend your downtime. When it comes to spending, do you have a rainy-day fund that you can tap into when times are not so prosperous? This safety net protects you when an unexpected event - such as job loss or unexpected repairs to your home. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Rain Day: People all over the world have celebrated rain and its life-giving power. All life is dependent on rain, and rain is what keeps our world green and beautiful. Today, celebrate all things wet and wonderful. Managing your stress and building your resiliency means that you have a back up plan. Plan for a rainy day. This may mean knowing what alternate activities...

EP675 – Leaders Make A Difference

What do you think… Kids will be what they see? This seems to me to be one of those nature and nurture questions. What I do believe is that all caring adults have the potential to positively impact the children and young adults around them. As leaders in our organizations and in our communities, how we treat each other, and especially, how we treat our youth matters. In a world filled so publicly with hate, prejudice, bullying and negativity, positive role models are desperately needed. So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Make A Difference To Children Month: None of us are perfect. Our goal should be to provide the best examples that we can. Here are three things that as leaders we can strive to do. We can inspire our youth to dream big and work hard to achieve those dreams To develop values based on gratitude and kindness And we can teach children to respect each other’s differences One person can make all the difference in a child's life...
