YES! Do you give yourself credit for your feats (yays, good jobs, kick ass moments)? If you don’t no one will! Somewhere along the line there was a message not to toot our own horn. That we are supposed to be everyone else’s cheerleader. I am calling bull shiFt! When our dog was training last year, I got excited and squealed at a high pitch voice, “good pee Denzel, good pee”. When he had an “accident” in the house, I ignored it. When we went outside my neighbors thought I was
Been there! Done that! If I calculated the weight lost and gained from diets it may be enough to equal a baby elephant! Kidding, but so serious. The good intentions and epic irritability and disappointment. The word #DIET has “die” in it! Where do most get stuck on diets? How do they fail us? #goals #happy #strongbodystrongmind
I didn’t feel like pushing a little harder. I didn’t feel like swimming against the current. I felt confused where to go next. I felt like I gave every ounce of my energy to everyone else and it still didn’t feel like it was enough. I felt like no matter how hard I tried to squeeze in an extra hour of the day I couldn’t get it all in. No matter how hard I tried to plan dinner, it just didn’t happen. I tried hard to stay focused, yet I was all over the place. The truth of the
Hang out with who makes you happy! Clear out emotional relationships that no longer are of benefit. If you don’t feel good when you are with someone, DON’T BE WITH THEM! Out with the stale energy in with the vibrant energy. ❤️ my running buddy Breaker #clarity #claritypeacepower #connectingwithpositivity #happy
How do you balance your superwoman? The critical key to superwomen accessing their superpowers is SAYING NO! I get it. As a mom, psychologist, wife, doggy mommy (the list is endless) it always feels like I am juggling. It feels like in order to move ahead in one area it means moving back in another. The reality is saying NO gives me the opportunity to be present and be good at one thing at a time. Take a bowl of sand and some rocks. Mark about 3-5 rocks with your priorities
I often hear clients tell me they wish they could control their thoughts. Controlling your thoughts is like controlling the rain. Rain happens when it happens and all you can do is bring an umbrella. But you don’t walk around with your umbrella every second of everyday. And sometimes when it rains, it is exciting because it means there is a rainbow. Negative thoughts do not have to be bad. They are just thoughts that come up and does not mean the thought is the truth. A thoug
The world I see outside myself is a reflection of the world I have shaped within. The world I experience is an extension of my mind… Today I see beauty. #makeshiFthappen #bestself #drdara #terrifictuesday #drmommy #DrDaraBushman

Mental health among athletes is on an increase as the stigma continues… Between 10% and 15% of athletes will experience psychological issues severe enough to warrant counseling. Regardless of how physically fit an athlete is, genetics or chemical imbalances may influence the development of mental health. 477 died from suicide between 2003-2013 out of 500,000 student-athletes. Statistics of mental health for athletes is often viewed as in accurate as many are fearful to report
I never was the type to be wild over kids. Although, I knew I would not be complete without them. I knew it would be my one regret if I didn’t try. I made such efforts to get pregnant that I perused medical fertility interventions. After much money and strong adverse reactions later, I didn’t get pregnant. I resigned that it was not in my path to be a mother through natural measures. Then I got pregnant! I had a beautiful, blissful pregnancy. I was one of those chipper, glowi
