Humans are spiritual beings who are also intensely social creatures. We passionately enjoy special Events. Conscious spontaneous choreography is required more than just planning. At ISA we refer Top Chefs for the best jobs our VIP clients give us among other Best Job Opportunities. Job descriptions that require top expert household help. Expert Chefs who love to serve fabulous healthy food and drinks, who also make great nutritious foods for children. They’re also able to invent a solution to unexpected challenges (like sudden extra dinner guests).
TIP: Breathing (taking a deep breath such as Ujjayi breath), is your first step. But most people don’t know History. Some people still buy into “trend image”, reliant on fashion (we all role play from childhood). One image is the ‘cool’ character, a slippery trend that shifts spontaneously. Something that was cool yesterday is suddenly uncool today. Like smoking, (a growing trend) with second hand smoke adversely affecting children, or mindlessly consuming questionable foods like GMO that children are exposed to daily. These are known facts. Forget promoting an image that promotes unhealthy living, there’s nothing cool about it (our survival is at stake). Know that your behavior affects them and that children have different needs unique to their growth. You can’t presume that because you were “raised on junk food” (that famous line is so tired), that they’ll be fine.
TIP: Share Good Information. Like the fact that autism is spreading among other disorders primarily in the west. ADD and HDAD or OCD are rapidly increasing. I ran across a neurologist doctor, who wrote a book showing this can be cured or greatly improved. See more about GAP here, and listen to Dr. Mercola’s interview with Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride. Find more details at both their websites. I’m not promoting these diets per se, this is in the interest of exploring learning possibilities.
Relatedly, there are many people from various countries on assignments having to live with actions to bring harm to others and to themselves. They’re told peace is difficult to reach. But there’s another story circulating. As a TED video posted by an artist showed, younger gens are reaching out across borders and religious beliefs in hopes of finding peace. All it took was one person not waiting on his government. Practice Love, you can’t stop it.
There are unlimited ways to bring a New Year. It’s not required to celebrate in mindless party time. Many of our clients are on vacation knowing we have choices how to use time, and critical to consciously assess daily. Start with bringing quality time to everything you do. If it’s not best of the best, immediately introduce something to improve the moment. It’s not one day at a time, it’s moment by moment (and beyond) don’t wait, and always have your humor ready.
This is true about Event Planning. There is nostalgia about nostalgia, as people feverishly rush to commemorate ephemeral sartorial days, from casual to formal (suggested or required) for a huge range of events. Don’t live in the past while enjoying its inspiration. We love Chanel, who took women out of dresses by putting them into men’s clothing (cross gender was not a term back then), forever ending imprisonment of female side-saddel (among other sexy freeing things). She forged her own vision and laid her own path against others who opposed and criticized. Her message was clear, don’t live vicariously and create your own freedom. Absurdly, “me centric” OCD (even when funny it’s sad), has falsely identified us as “addicts” (and as long as you ‘look good’ that’s all people care about). This is symptomatic of inventing your insanity. Despite amends and best intention efforts, we have failed to mature. We must each take responsibility for our maturation. Create your beauty-full world rather than blame memories you’re clinging to.
As things are ‘anything goes’ in 2013 we remember artists who’ve bravely insisted on new directions. Raise a toast to them yearly including our forerunners. They created the world we live in often with great personal sacrifice and unimaginable travail. None of this would have been possible without them. They didn’t have rehab, it was live or die. If you’re in New York or passing through on your way back from vacation, go see MOMA exhibit on abstraction to enjoy art that transformed the world, and our Spirit with it. See the Holocaust Museum in Washington, and then see The Scream by Munch, a lifetime opportunity. Take your friends and children with you. Human suffering has been with us since the beginning. One of the best books I ever read as a teen was I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. It put things into perspective about our expectations. This may seem a bit low for a New Year event, but it’s about being grateful, not forgetting the past.
For those who don’t know, it was young Yves St. Laurent who originally made the smoking suit popular for women everywhere, by introducing his own original ‘every day style’ (building and inspired on Channel’s). I continue to share passion with Yves St. Laurent and his conversation with Art, who inspired me significantly in my youth.
VIP clients know it’s important to explore roles and reinvent ourselves often. Best of the best Staffing is always done with expert unsurpassed quality – as ISA is famous for. What’s important to remember is that original Art is not derivative. It’s not about copy catting, as we’re seeing increasingly fill our museums. Original means new vision. All fashion, including your jeans and t-shirts, are costumes. We come in famously naked so let’s not argue, (just smile).
Audiences to this day are not sufficiently appreciative of St. Lauren’s contribution to transforming our ability to imagine more deeply. Stories of suicide and harmful actions triggered by mental anguish are well known. But was it just mental, or also caused by being malnourished (and the social ridicule many endured for being original). Don’t forget how important healthy food is for us, which includes what we feed our souls that also affects mood swings. Fight for your rights to have healthy foods and a healthy environment. Become proactive in your communities.
Another wonderful alternative (also highly inspirational) would be going to the American Visionary Art Museum. Explore and appreciate these remarkable self-taught artists, and perhaps also volunteer your time. Rebecca Alban Hoffberger – founder – director, is also another true visionary (that goes with self-taught DIY). Children need inspiration beyond what is taught to know they can teach themselves, as these artists have. Have your Events daily as you wish!

“TAKE A BREATH” BREAK
For an easy one-to-five-minute exercise, sit up in your chair with your feet flat on the floor and hands on top of your knees. Close your eyes and Breathe In and Out, slowly and deeply, concentrating on your lungs as they expand fully in your chest. While shallow breathing causes stress, deep breathing oxygenates your blood, clears your mind, and helps center your body to opening up tension blocks (or research expert health advice and more local TIPS online in your area). Do this one with a colleague at work and they’ll love it too – watch your energy build.
EAR BUDS & MUSIC
Tuck those buds into your ears and cel phone and listen to music. For even five minutes a cello master like Yo-Yo Ma may do the trick (another favorite is Andre Segovia guitar) but if classical isn’t your thing, try listening to ocean or nature sounds or other zen relaxing effects of musical sounds. We do it when getting massages at spas, but don’t think about it when needing to remove a stressful situation out of focus during our day. Taking a break listening to relaxing music generates calm that has a positive effect on our brain and body, lowers blood pressure if the right music (as clinical studies have shown), as well as reduces cortisol, a hormone related to stress and weight gain.
Call A Friend, Therapist, Life Coach
I once heard from a PA we placed on a JOB that one of their favorite ways of staying clear is having a therapist or life coach on call when things get too pressured and they need a five minute mentoring session. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by challenges at hand, do this, or you can also simply take a break to call a friend and talk out your problems. Positive relationships with friends and loved-ones are part of a healthy lifestyle, but there’s no time that this is more useful than when you’re under a lot of stress. A reassuring voice, even for a minute, can put everything in perspective. Don’t tuff it out if it’s an issue that could cost you your job. Reach out. If it’s a JOB in the domestic help field you’re doing and you need to unload and get some expert advise, call our office. We’d love to help, listen, and talk it out.
BE YOUR BEST FRIEND
Be your own best friend every day. Sometimes calling a friend is not an option or you’re sworn to confidentiality and cannot share your issue. For general stress relief simply talking ourselves through it works wonders. And don’t worry about seeming crazy to yourself or even someone else who can hear your “self talk”, talking to a pet, an ant, a bird, works great (Really, try it). Just tell yourself why you’re feeling stressed out, don’t concentrate on blame focus, just what you have to do to complete the task at hand, and most importantly, that everything will be okay. Trust it, your issue will be resolved given time, if not immediately.
SELF CARE INCLUDES EATING RIGHT
Stress and diet are closely related so make sure yours is working for you optimally. Many people are triggered by hidden food allergies they’re unaware of causing anxiety that isn’t attributed to food. I’m consistently seeing people who are stressed out and it’s worn on their body despite their best efforts to hide it. Don’t. Take food and drink and your self care, seriously. Drinking tons of water alone won’t do it. People rely much too much on water to carry them throughout the day. Not enough to do the job.
LAUGH IT OFF
Seriously (drama and comedy are paired Historically), let it wash over you and make light of whatever is troubling you. Laughing works, even if you don’t mean it at first. Remember lying on someone’s stomach and someone else laid on yours and you all started laughing, and pretty soon you’d all be in tears hysterical? Laughing really does change our nervous system into making us happy. If you have access, watch a quick YouTube classic like Monty Python “The Ministry of Silly Walks.” Brits are hilarious when they’re being silly, you’ll soon be cracking up (rather than cracking up with tortured worry).
THE ONE MINUTE EXERCISE TRICK
Exercise is fantastic for a quick dose of throwing off nervous energy and you don’t need to be at the gym or training. Go outside and take a quick short speed walk around the block or run in place, or simply standing do a long stretch during a break at work. This can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation, and you can also always excuse yourself for ten minutes just to goof off. Getting your blood moving releases endorphins and improves your mood fast.
