Happy Monday!! 🌸 Hope everyone is have a good start to the week. And if it is starting low, like Mondays often do, it can only go up from here 🌼🍀
I saw this on a friend’s FB page this weekend and just had to share! When I do stress management classes or talk about mindfulness and relaxation techniques, I make sure to talk about 4-7-8 breathing. This technique consists of inhaling silently through your nose as you count to four in your head.
Then, hold your breath for seven seconds.
Then, exhale from your mouth for eight seconds. 🧘‍♀️
This diaphragmatic breathing (belly breathing) has been shown to help lower ones heart rate, blood pressure and all over stress feelings.
💓 So why not try some other ways to make ourselves feel better??!! 💯👍🏻🤩
Let me know which works for you!!! —Christine Robinson 315-772-2597

Normally I try to keep the posts light and funny, but here's the deal. Last weekend we had two aggravated DWIs with an average BAC of .27.
Each of us cares about our families and would do anything to protect them, but when a person gets a DWI they are basically saying their night of fun is more important than another person's family. It is too easy to call a cab, Uber, Lyft or as a last resort DDPP.

Please Be smart, Be a warrior and Climb to Glory.

07/15/2020

💙 One thing in life is sure...change will happen in our personal lives and at work. How do you handle change? Are you in a leadership position and just "do it"? Or do you communicate well throughout the team? Let's see...
-- Unsuccessful leaders tend to focus on the “what” behind the change. Successful leaders communicate the “what” and the “why.” As inquisitive human beings, we want to know why something is being changed. If it ain't broke, why "fix" it?? Leaders who explain the purpose of the change and connect it to the organization’s values or explain the benefits create stronger buy-in and urgency for the change.
-- Also, bringing people together to plan and execute change is critical. Successful leaders work across boundaries, encouraging employees to break out of their silos, and refuse to tolerate unhealthy competition. They also include employees in decision-making early on, strengthening their commitment to change. Unsuccessful change leaders fail to engage employees early and often in the change process.
-- And lastly, successful leaders make sure their own beliefs and behaviors support change, too. Change is difficult, but leaders who negotiate it successfully are resilient and persistent, and willing to step outside their comfort zone. They also devote more of their own time to the change effort and focus on the big picture. Unsuccessful leaders fail to adapt to challenges, express negativity, and were impatient with a lack of results.
What do you think? REMEMBER...resiliency is required because it helps people handle change’s inherent pressure, uncertainty, and setbacks. Leaders need to build their own reserves and resiliency, in support of their mental and physical health. They also can guide others to face change in healthy and sustainable ways. Need help building yours and your staff's resiliency to manage change? Let me know! I can help you help your team to succeed.🤝 Give me a call-- Christine Robinson 315-772-2597, Employee Assistance Program💚

07/13/2020

Let's talk about drugged driving. We are currently seeing an increase in drugged driving incidents, so first let's clear the air. You joined the Army and are not supposed to be doing drugs anyway. When we enlist, we know full and well that we cannot do drugs (The test at MEPS was a pretty good hint). Now for those who think it is safer to smoke weed and drive then alcohol, well it isn't. Marijuana slows reaction time, impairs judgment of time and distance, and decreases coordination. So yeah, the impairment is different but it is still impairment. Second, you may think a breathalyzer can't catch you, and you would be right, but each law enforcement agency has Drug Recognition Experts trained to recognize the signs. Then of course your command will give you a drug test. You will get caught, and it will cost a lot of money. Is it worth it?

Let's look at the cost of smoking weed for an E4 with greater then two years in service:

Monthly Base Pay: $2,307
Annual Base Pay: $27,684
FG Article 15:
Take two 1/2
month's base Pay -$2,307
Reduction to E3 -$201.30

Total loss over one year $4,722.60
*Not to mention the cost of the DWI by Drug (about $10,000 including the insurance increase)

Is getting high one night worth over $14k?

💜💜
Many people, adults & children tend to compare themselves with their peers instead of focusing on their own lane and their own progress. As a result, their self-esteem can suffer a LOT.
So what can we do to help? 💞
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell those who need to hear it... there’s always someone worse or better than them at things at any given moment. And that doesn’t matter one bit!
⠀⠀⠀There’s NO reason to compare ourselves with others because:
1️⃣ FIRST, our accomplishments and results do not make us more or less valuable or important. We’re all equally worthy of love, attention, kindness just because we were born. It doesn’t matter who is better or worse—we’re all equally worthy human beings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2️⃣ SECOND, you can explain that in order to grow we need to focus on building our own skills and getting better rather than competing with others.
🔆 You can say:
“Our personal growth and learning are always about us and no one else. You might not be the best and that’s okay. The most important thing is that you're better than you were last time!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀So here’s my question to you—>
❓Can you think of something that you can do now that you couldn't do last year? ❓
🎈 I would love to hear your response 😍 Take care of yourself and each other 🥰 —Christine

😊 Like a cluttered house that needs to be cleared if it is to have room for movement and new life, our minds need clearing if they are to be open to new information, ideas, and inspiration. 🙂🙃
After a full day, stories, words, images, and songs from any number of sources continue to play in our heads hours after we encounter them. Even as we lie in bed, in the quiet dark, our minds continue noisily processing all the input from our day. How do we shut it off? 🤨

Too often, the activities we choose to help us relax only add to the clutter. Watching television, seeing a movie, reading a book, or talking to a friend all involve taking in more information. In order to really clear our minds, WE NEED A BREAK from mental stimulation. ✔️Activities like yoga, dancing, or taking a long walk help to draw our attention to our bodies, slowing our mental activity enough that our minds begin to settle.
✔️Deep breathing is an even simpler way to draw attention away from our mental activities. 🧘‍♀️ Once we are mentally relaxed, we can begin the process of clearing our minds. Most of us instinctively know what allows our minds to relax and release any unnecessary clutter. It may be meditation or time spent staring at the stars. Whatever it is, these exercises feel like a cool, cleansing bath for the brain and leave our minds feeling clear and open. Ultimately, the practice of clearing our minds allows us to be increasingly more open so that we can perceive the world as the fresh offering it is, free of yesterday's mental clutter.
