"There is hope in healing. When we learn to conquer stress, we can create work-life balance and find joy in our lives. I guide clients to connect to inner peace despite external life chaos." -Dr. Romie

My Mission in Healing:

I want to bring hope back to your healing. My clients all share a similar story: successful professionals that have lost their way due to a health scare, a broken heart or a financial crisis. It manifests as stress-based diseases such as headaches, anxiety, insomnia, depression or a stubborn muffin top. What is the real story? You don't feel like you are worthy? You don't know if you are good enough?  Or have you just lost hope for healing? I believe you can connect to inner peace despite life's external chaos. This is how we heal mind, body, and spirit.

Spring Break for Your Brain
Written by Dr. Romie on Apr 1, 2015
Mind Tags: BrainpowerMindStressWork-Life Balance

Twice in the twelve months, I have scheduled time off only to arrive at a hotel with looming deadlines, unanswered emails from clients, and speeches to prepare.  It seemed like a much-needed scheduled break was getting in the way of the never-ending to-do lists in my brain.  Looking at my Facebook and Twitter newsfeeds, I see that I am not alone.

Time for Spring Break?
It’s that time of the year in the when families are celebrating Spring Break with their children out of school.  Whether it’s time for scheduled vacation or finding care for kids while you still work, stress levels can escalate leaving us all feeling less than our best selves.  

Even the best-laid plans or intentions can lead us to a point of high stress, anxiety or a feeling like you are in a brain fog. When we schedule vacations, we cannot anticipate positive or negative events such as landing your “next big client” or losing an employee on your team.  

Then we feel guilty about not having adequate organizational systems in place in our business or home lives.  Being chained to work email during a vacation only fuels resentment instead of relaxation.  Sound familiar?

We are all a part of a mindful revolution.

As a mind-body medicine physician, it fills me with hope to watch the “mindful revolution” occurring in the business world.  In the last six months we have see the the theme of mindfulness on the cover of Time magazine and hearing about how numerous business schools are incorporating mindfulness based training programs into curriculum.   You may even be a part of this mindful living community because you heard me speak at your company on the neuroscience behind mindfulness.

Self-compassion and compassion towards others are two of the steps I discuss my mindful living program, “Mindset Matters”.  The same question arises from corporate and coaching clients alike.  

Is showing compassion and kindness a sign of weakness?”

Is There A Cure For Fear?

Mind Tags: AnxietyMindSelf-Empowerment

As a part of our global mindful living community, I know I am not alone in having to stand in the face of fear.  Tests appear in all of our lives, right? Maybe it is having to hear a diagnosis of chronic health issue, walking away from a stable paycheck to become an entrepreneur, or ending a relationship that is no longer filling your heart with love.  

What is the difference between the mindset of people who can stand up to those fears and those who buckle under the pressure?  It is not the lack of courage.  Courage lies deep within all of us, we just have to learn how to cultivate it during times of darkness.

The health benefits of meditation for high blood pressure, sleep and depression are widely accepted in adults.  But what about our children?

What is mindfulness?  Why Should I be mindful?

I describe mindfulness in two simple words:  “pay attention”.  When we pay attention with all of our senses, we are then present in the current moment.  By being in the current moment, our minds are not ruminating about the past or worried about the future.  Modern psychology defines mindfulness as “bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis.”
