working with government agencies to improve teacher motivation and engagement. Self care is not selfish. It is what all of us need to do in order to remain productive and effective at all facets of life. Doing things which are meaningful, engaging with friends and family, doing acts of kindness, creating goals that are realistic and time-based. These are activities that will impact deep in our spirit and bring us joy.

Are Couples Making Through the Pandemic?

Many couples coming for therapy have asked if their bickering, snapping, and impatience is ‘the norm’ among marrieds during the pandemic. Rather than give an opinion, I did some research to get a good feel for it. The gist is, not all couples are feeling stresses and dealing with it the same way. 1. Young couples are dealing better than old age couples2. same sex couples , african-american couples, other minorities are not surviving as healthily as their counterparts3. Couples who have unhealthy attachment styles are very stressed.4. Couples who were strong, committed, and grounded are thrivingAlways go for the evidence. Never the opinion. Seek the Sciences

Always move towards your best self

A personal brand is not built on a single day. It is moulded through years and years of choices and chances: the projects you take, the alignments you make, where you spend your time, and how you use your resources. Decide who you want to be and do the spade work to build towards that vision.

Family as a Team

The pandemic continues to rage without an end in sight. Families are feeling the stress and take out the stress and frustration on each other. Here are some proactive ideas on how to work together as a team.

Be Who You Are

Many are scared to show their talents, skills, or to stand out unique as they are. They fear judgement, ridicule, labels, being discriminated upon, or thought of as ‘strange’. My client was on the heavy side, a genius, loved to dance, and was gay. He was so scared that he tried everything he could ..following well-meaning advise ‘not to stand out’ or ‘just lay low and blend’. He slopped into anxiety, lost friends, became vigilant, and closed off himself. After months of work, he designs a poster, thankful that he can now herald and be proud of all that he is. Effective coaching engagements free people to be their best selves —acknowledge who they are, live authentically, live never ever again to cower in the dark.

We are still at Covid and its almost a year now

We started the lockdown on March 13, 2020 and its now January 13, 2021. While there are vaccines on the horizon, the implementation of the inoculation plan or the availability is till up in the air.

Given this, there are a few psychological insights that can help boost understanding. To this, psychologists have studied personality and its prediction to following lockdown rules. Those who are neurotic, conscientious, agreeable, and open are most inclined to follow the ‘stay-at-home protocols. Openness is the most astonishing finding because you would think their adventurous nature would make it difficult for them. The finding however is that people who score high in the openness personalty trait get news faster and see how devastating world-wide Covid is and so they tend to follow the rules.

Yes, personality can help predict such things as these.


Getting out of Conflict

It remains a tough time mentally, physically, and emotionally as the Philippines remains in lockdown for over 3 months and no vaccine in sight. On top of this, the political environment is in flux with the proposal of the anti-terror bill and the guilty verdict of Maria Ressa, a world reknowed journalist who has been critical of the Duterte administration. Complicate this with job loss and financial insecurity…every family is set to feel the stress and may take it out on each other. The Naikan psychology has suggested introspective questions that can heal that divide. When we start with gratitude and end with ownership and responsibility for actions, there is a way out. Half the battle is won
