Dr. Cynthia Howard
Do you have trouble staying organized? Is there a lot of clutter around you? Do you end up being moody and lacking confidence sometimes? Do you procrastinate and have difficulty concentrating? Is it difficult to know what to do next? Well, today’s episode is about internal conflict and how to turn that around so you can get organized, feel happier, and get things done! The first thing you need to do is to make a list of the things that are creating internal conflict in your life and approach finding resolve for the first one. Join us as we discuss some of the causes of disharmony and internal conflict, with real-life examples and tools to open your heart as you begin to operate from a new perspective. Love leads differently to ‘let’s get this done’, so we invite you to embrace these techniques in order to put love in the driver’s seat. If you’re looking to energize yourself and get into flow, tune in today!
