  • Are You Addicted to Stress? Here's the 7-Step Program for the Cure
    “I have to rush,” “I’m crazy busy,” and “I can’t remember what it feels like to get a good night’s sleep” – is this you? Most likely you are addicted to stress which means that you adhere to the pattern of the over-doer both at home and at work. Debbie Mandel’s proven 7-Step program to reclaim joy and spontaneity in life will build up an immunity to feeling bad.

  • How to Have a Constructive Conflict
    Relationships thrive on rhythm and during a conflict that rhythm is broken. Learn how to communicate clearly, concisely and naturally. Fortify your self-concept so as to not tear down your opponent’s.

  • Changing Habits to Self-Care
    Are you a caregiver taking care of children, elderly parents and work? Learn easy stress-management strategies to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before you put it on the rest of your family as per airline instructions.

  • Don’t Let Stress Steal Your Heart Away
    Learn how to manage your personal stressors to speak a language your spouse can understand. Learn that “I do for me= I do for us.”

  • Bad Moods Are Contagious
    Learn how to fend off a bad mood at work, socially or at home. It is important to distinguish: Is it you or is it them?

  • Your Bad Habits Can Be Good for You
    Overcoming a bad habit can be daunting to say the least. Mandel reveals how some typical bad habits actually contain strengths using the Kaizen method of business leadership to achieve balance in daily life.

  • Pain Management
    Today’s aches and pains require that we partner our own healing. Stress is the root cause of the inflammatory process. Learn how anger, resentment and loss impinge on your life and what you can do to get rid of the pain.
