Here’s yesterday’s KSL TV Segment “Love your body with out losing a pound”.
How are you doing with accepting your body just as it is? I welcome your thoughts and comments below (your email will not be published)
Ninety percent of couples improve with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy! That’s an unparalleled success rate and last year I had the privilege of interviewingÂ Scott Wooley, PhD, one of the worldwide EFT trainers.Â Since then I have been training in EFT so I can more effectively help couples!

If you ever find yourself at a loss for words in awkward social situations watch this segment. Here are some helpful phrases to add to your relationship repertoire!
|Â Sticky Social Situation||Â Example||Â Try Saying This|
|Â Youâ€™re asked to do something you donâ€™t want to do and itâ€™s hard to say â€œnoâ€.||Â An extended family member informs you that they are staying with you over Spring Break and you already have a full house.||Â â€œThatâ€™s just not going to work for me.â€Â|
|Â Youâ€™re feeling pressured to answer on the spot.||Â A friend asks you about your recent marital separation in the company of others.||Â â€œLet me get back with you on that .â€Â|
|Â Youâ€™re asked about someone elseâ€™s personal life||Â Your neighbor asks you about details of your best friendâ€™s financial problems.||Â â€œThatâ€™s a good question to ask her/him.â€Â|
|Â Youâ€™re in a heated debate or disagreement.||Â You and your spouse get in a no-win debate about whose fault that you were late for an important event.||Â â€œWe can think different things and still be friends.â€Â|
|Â Someone is expressing intense emotion about you directly to you.||Â Your toddler screams in the grocery store, â€œI hate you, mommy!â€||Â â€œWow! Youâ€™re really (feeling word) at me.â€Â|
|Â You want to make a difficult request of someone else.||Â Your mother-in-law frequently gives unsolicited parenting, cooking, weight loss advice and you want her to only give advice when you ask for it.||Â â€œIt would mean a lot to me if (your request).â€Â|
I recently surveyed more than 600 Utah women and found that 60 percent say they take on more commitments than they can handle, and 68 percent reported they don’t say “no” when asked to do something they don’t want to do. There are so many demands on your time and energy that saying “no” is crucial to your emotional well-being.
Why is it hard to say “no”?
In my therapy office and in my workshops I often hear women they don’t say “no” because:
â€¢ “I don’t want to disappoint others.”
â€¢ “I should be able to do it all.”
â€¢ “I want to help.”
â€¢ “If I say ‘no’ I feel guilty.”
â€¢ “I want to please others.”
â€¢ “I feel pressured by others.”
