Early Enrollment to begin soon for the 90-Day Positivity Bootcamp
At the end of 2018, I asked and you answered... I wanted to know what type of courses you wanted next. The response was excellent. And I heard you. The 90-Day Positivity Bootcamp is now in development and will be opening early enrollment soon... So stay tuned! In order to not miss the Early Enrollment discounts, sign up for emails to be the FIRST to know.
Now, if you're wondering if this is for you or someone you know, you can get a little taste of the type of positive intention work that will be included through the 4 complimentary Positive Intentions that you will receive when you sign up for the email list for this course.
This course will focus on building skills to help improve positivity and joy in your life. It's a tall order... though I am confident that you can do it. There's a key to 90 days - it can take around 90 days to build a new habit.
Here is what you can expect:
❤︎ Daily homework - email sent everyday to remind you to post your homework (it's part of that consistency and practice for your new mindset)
❤︎ Artful Positive Intentions throughout the program
❤︎ Direct and sometimes tough questions that shed light on happiness blockers, energy suckers and other things that may be sabotaging your positivity and joy.
❤︎ Assignments that help you expand your view of joy and positivity.
I'm excited for this course. You do the work, you will see results. Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing my own experiences, giving tips, and even open up a FREE course for you to complete an Artful Intention prior to the end of enrollment. I encourage you to sign up for the emails so you can be sure to get all the information you need.
Positivity through Fertility Treatment - Tough yet Possible!
Maintaining positivity is tough enough... imagine while going through fertility treatment. Research does look at the impact of outlook and the differences between optimistic or pessimistic mindsets toward fertility treatment. Just in 2012, "FERTILITY TREATMENT RESPONSE: IS IT BETTER TO BE MORE OPTIMISTIC OR LESS PESSIMISTIC?" was published in Psychosomatic Medicine. The article suggests a tendency toward a more positive outcomes for those with an optimistic outlook. Hmmmmm...really?
In my own work with women and couples, I see something similar. There are some key factors that contribute to well-being during fertility treatment:
❤︎ grieving their fertility struggle, pregnancy loss or unsuccessful treatment
❤︎ quieting the worry, fear, apprehension and realistically recognizing skills, roles and who is in control of what through treatment
❤︎ identifying useful and purposeful action during specific times of the fertility treatment process
❤︎ positive intentions or affirmations and mindfulness throughout the treatment time of life
Positivity is possible, just as much as the hurts are real. Chartreuse Center offers online courses, a podcast/blog and counseling to help folks where they are. Positivity through Fertility Treatment is an online course that will begin enrollment soon... In the meantime, receive emails with articles, positive intentions and quotes to keep in touch with the "good." Sign up now for all the good stuff and to be in-the-know about enrollmentSo stay tuned!
