Anxiety is becoming an epidemic in our culture. According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of Canada, “one in four Canadians will have at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime.” This can be debilitating as people often experience sleepless nights, preoccupation of negative repetitive thoughts, or feel a sense of dread, worry, or terror. Along with the psychological symptoms, anxiety can present physically as nausea, sweating, diarrhea, shortness of breath, racing heartbeat, and feeling constantly on edge.
Most of us want a quick fix because living with anxiety can be unbearable. However, before you run to the doctor and ask for a “magic pill” that will ultimately just mask the symptoms, consider treating anxiety with a holistic approach.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), commonly known as EFT Tapping, or just Tapping, is a powerful tool to get past psychological blocks. That said, it should not be confused with tap dancing! I made this mistake early in my career when an audience member came up to me afterward and told me that she kept expecting me to start tap dancing!
We are living in very different times right now. And I have to ponder the question why are we not teaching people about the importance of a strong immune system? Lots of talk of keeping our distance and wearing our masks. Yet why are we not teaching how important it is to build our immune systems during this pandemic? Our bodies are a beautiful and yet complex system that will work well, if we do our best to take care of it. So I would like to talk about a very important way to keep our health and immune system up with hydration.
Dale Choquette has run a dozen marathons and she is still running on full. This is not surprising when you consider that Dale is a Certified Master Trainer in Human Relationships with more than 20 years’ experience in corporate and professional development, and has worked with a vast array of teams ranging from a martial arts dojo to large organizations. It also makes perfect sense when you realize that her focus is on teaching her clients to gain what they need to cross their finish lines: personal insight.
Also a veteran speaker and the author of Excuse me, I’m Being Audacious, Dale’s understanding is clear and broad: all success is built on healthy human relationships, relationships are built on effective communication, and effective communication requires a keen insights into how the interplay of different personalities works — and what to do when it doesn’t. Most importantly, she understands that leadership is an inside job; it’s about knowing oneself and leading oneself.

I was born just short of legally blind, but able to see, hear, and feel the colour, vibration, & energy fields all around me. Seeing, hearing, and speaking with spirit was a normal occurrence for me as a child. The isolation of contracting polio at age 1, living mostly in a remoter area in SW Alberta, and moving three times before the age of five gave me no sense that I was different from other children until I started school. I became what I call an integrated learner using all my senses. I became so used to relying on alternative senses that my parents did not even realize I couldn’t see the big E on an eye chart until I was tested late in childhood.
