Tickled Pink Woman Podcast Show Notes:
Sunday, March 31, 2013

Hello and welcome to Episode 12 of the Tickled Pink Woman podcast, a woman’s celebration of self.  The focus of today’s podcast: Ways to Stress Less.

I.         MUSE: Why I’ve been AWOL this last few weeks…

II.        Today's episode: My tips for stressing less…

1)   Implement Time Savers: WhatIWore app, combine self-care rituals, set up coffee to brew the night before...
2)   Pare Down: closets, the “stack” on my desk, jewelry repair...
3)   Engage in at least one spiritual activity a day: meditation, yoga, deep breathing
4)   Establish minimum standards for self-care: A concept from author Jennifer Louden.  My minimum standards for self-care are: plenty of water, affirmations, rest, creativity daily
5)   Sign on for the power of the pen: journal, record creative inspirations as they come to you, write out monthly dreams, create an “all I want this weekend” list, pen a letter or note to a friend
6)   Embrace white space: breakfast, meditation, driving to and from work, patio time…
7)   Consciously commit to undertaking one creative endeavor a day: write a few lines in your journal, rearrange…, plant a flower garden, be resourceful (repurpose items, get things done YOUR way, problem solve)
8)   Micromove!  Apply author SARK’s strategies for getting things done…

Pinking Shears: Ways to take today’s concepts away and tailor them for your needs! 

1) Choose at least one item from each of the eight tips and implement it in the coming month!

2) Grab your journal and record added ways that you can minimize stress… Enact your strategies!
