Planning is so important to balancing your days and weekly schedule of responsibilities and tasks with your personal needs.

I use a paper planning sheet and even schedule in my workouts every other day, my daily naps and meal breaks just like they are appointments.

Below I share with you what I myself do to be successful and what I teach my clients to do each day as well.

One of the ways I take good care of myself is by knowing what I need to function my best.

Interracial relationships can be very rewarding, but can also be very complicated.

One of the hardest parts of an interracial partnership is dealing with the reactions of others.

I know that I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep a day and a power nap each day around 3pm for about 30 minutes.

This allows me to stay awake and work an extra 3 hours in the evening after I finish with my clients. I get low blood sugar and “crash” when I go beyond that point.

If one of your friends or family members does not approve simply because of the other person’s race (and not because of their personality, or because they are abusive or harmful to you), then you should let them know that their criticism is unacceptable.

this simple truth is that an interracial relationship or marriage holds all the same ‘issues’ that a non mixed relationships has, only with some extra outside challenges, ignorances, etc.

Expectations of past behavior often get us in trouble when conditions change. We are more successful when we communicate with others (family, spouses, partners, co-workers, bosses) and discuss schedule changes and our needs in detail to avoid others being upset with us.

My boyfriend and I were able to discuss the above situation and prepare for the weeks ahead where we each have very busy days.

You know that when you take care of yourself you perform better, think better and are a nicer person to be around.
