Spiritual health and culture are important for health.

Spiritual health is recognized in our constitution. Spiritual health and culture are importantly connected. We place a great deal of emphasis on health and culture in Canada. Yet spiritual health is placed in a separate bucket from physical and mental health. There is a lot of energy frozen in the words ‘spirit’, ‘spiritual’ and ‘spirituality’. Our healthcare system demands evidence-based research yet our constitution recognizes the supremacy of God. When the Canadian Constitution was amended in 1982 to entrench the … Read More

I know I am right, so why should I change?

As I reflect on my conversations around Logosynthesis, I recognize that we often hold a great deal of emotion in our beliefs. The stronger the emotion, the more adamant we are that we are right and the stronger the conviction to get others to change.  Consider how the following statements may be limiting: I don’t get along well with others because they have issues. I am not the one who needs personal development work. My frustration at work is due to other people not … Read More

Get over it and move on.

It can be challenging to ‘get over it and move on’. The holidays are over.  We have finished the first week in a new year.  Do we take time to acknowledge any stress we experienced or do we just push forward?  Get over it.  Move on. At work, we just finished a challenging year with lots of change.  Some of us took a few days off to recharge.  We are now full swing into the next set of targets. Do we … Read More

What to do when work is overwhelming.

When work is overwhelming, stress can lead to burnout. I admit that my job can overwhelm me at times. I have been in the same position for the past 10+ years.  As the demands increase and the systems change in my role continually increases, I have difficulty keeping up with the workload.  I feel like I am playing ‘pop-a-mole’.  The faster I work, the further behind I get.  My computer doesn’t respond fast enough and new systems continue to add process.  I work to get everything … Read More

I believe we all want to be good parents but what we hold in our heads and our hearts isn’t always in line with the behaviour we exhibit. As parents, we hold fantasies of how our children should be based on our beliefs and past experiences.  And when things aren’t as we had imagined, we react.  Often we are not even aware of … Read More
