Sarah's Update

Presenting at the SWE Conference in Houston

Sarah Speaks!

I am excited to present my special report "The Surprising Truths of Goal Setting" this month in Houston at the Society of Women Engineers annual conference. If you are interested in this special report, see my Sarah's Offers section below.

Also as a Leadership Coach for SWE, I will be presenting a workshop on "First Aid For Leadership Burnout". Myself and another Leadership Coach will be sharing ways to spot signs of burnout and how to say "No" gracefully.

Urban Nomad Update

It is official, Rob and I are now full-time Nomads. We have moved to Oshkosh, WI for the winter and are living in our RV on the Glen Valley Horse Farm.

Rob spent his summer rebuilding his RV. If you didn't know that he owned an RV, here's a personal blog post about Stanley, our 1978 Minnie Winnie.

As always, my personal blog is the best way to be able to answer the ongoing question - “Where is Sarah living now?” I would love to hear your comments!

Meet Your Happy Chemicals - Book Review

Meet Your Happy Chemicals - cover

Earlier this year I was given the chance to review "Meet Your Happy Chemicals" by Dr. Loretta G Breuning. I wanted to share this book with you because it definitely ties in with my special report - "The Surprising Truths of Goal Setting."

Believe it or not, it is possible to talk about your neurochemicals and not fall asleep. Dr. Breuning takes a fresh look at how our brains give us positive reinforcement. It should come as no surprise that our happy chemicals are tied to our survival.

The bad news is that these feelings of happiness can only last for a short while because in the wild we always need to be on alert for predators and other dangers.

The book goes on to describe how most bad habits are misguided attempts to feel good and how each neurochemical influences your behavior in a different way.

I especially enjoyed how you can use these neurochemicals to reinforce new habits and making changes in your life. The book provides a section on how to do just that.

Sadly the old adage that it takes 21 days to make a change doesn't hold true and it's closer to 45 days. That's why I say if you're going to spend the time and effort to make a change in your life, make it big!

"Meet Your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Endorphin, Oxytocin, Serotonin" is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats.
