There are two ways to go through Life:
The First Way: Like a little cork bobbing on the ocean, being bounced around chaotically by every wave that comes your way. You’re stressed, anxious, tired and overwhelmed, never knowing what will hit you next. You long for peace and calm.
The Second Way: Living from a place of feeling centered, grounded, balanced and at peace, regardless of what is occurring in your life.
The first option is exhausting and leads to catastrophic mental, emotional and physical health issues. The second is called living in Balance. It is the most powerful and productive place from which to live your life.
No matter what you’re currently experiencing, this is possible and it is yours to claim. Let me teach you time-honoured skills for developing a deeper connection with yourself, creating a daily practice for reducing mental, emotional and physical stress, and living life in Balance.
It’s the difference between simply existing and truly living.
We now know the importance Self-Care. It affects every single aspect of our being, every corner and moment of our Life, how we live and how we age. Developing a Daily Practice to reduce stress is a key component of this. If you’re interested in learning some tips for doing this, see the links I’ve posted at the bottom of the page.
There are many things you can incorporate into your Daily Practice that I would love to share with you, but the most important thing to keep in mind is that it has to be accessible to your life. If it only looks good on paper but impossible for you to fit into your life, it won’t work.
I would also say that it’s important to start with small steps. Make small changes that you can commit to daily. Over time, these small steps in Self-care, Mindfulness, Daily Practice and Healthy Boundaries turn into big behavioural changes, and this in turn delivers long-term results.
No doubt you’ve heard of the many benefits of Mindfulness, Meditation and Conscious Breathing! The science behind these practices clearly demonstrate their ability to reduce stress, center, ground, being clarity of mind, improve health/immune system, sleep and the quality on one’s Life.

The Powerful Effects of Gratitude
My name is Dawna Woodliffe and I am 68 years old. Over the years of my life I have seen more that a few counsellors and at the time I always looked for someone who could help me find and continue on my path. Not an easy task! I have been seeing Kristina for over five years now and she has helped me through some difficult times including the death of my mother. Read more...
How I first met Kristina was complete synchronicity. I was feeling lost, frustrated and in desperate need of a change in my life. I went into our first session feeling like I had a weight on my shoulders and with a heavy heart; I came out feeling like I could fly. From that first session to now I have grown and evolved in leaps and bounds. Read more...
Finding Kristina and starting my journey with her is one of the best investments I’ve made. Her teachings have altered me in a way so positively that I will be forever grateful. She is warm, kind and non judgmental. She is truly gifted at her craft, and I am truly thankful to have her as my life coach.
It is hard to put into words the incredibly profound impact Kristina has had on my life. For years I have battled depression, anxiety, inner demons and control issues. Working with Kristina has given me a whole new perspective on my life and my relationships with others, as well as with myself. Through Kristina I learned tools to be a person that I could never have even imagined before. Read more...
