Anxiety & Planning
I don’t know what your experience with anxiety looks, sounds, or feels like.   I only know mine.

In my experience, anxiety feels like paralyzing worry.  It feels a little like an incomplete run-on sentence.  As if my mind takes in the data “this expensive item broke, I don’t know how to fix it, I don’t know how much it costs to replace, I don’t know how long it will take to fix.”

Then it runs into a fixed mindset belief, often a belief born of trauma.  “Bad things always happen to me.”  This disempowers me.

For me, anxiety doesnt have ONE solution,  it has many.  I have two products that really help me manage anxiety proactively and reactively.

I also find that addressing my root concerns through a process helps a great deal.  There are so many resources to uncover the causes of anxiety and create new beliefs and actions.

I have also found Churchill’s words to hit the nail on the head.

Let our advance worry become advance thinking and planning.

Planning is a POWERFUL combatant to anxiety.  

For example, An appliance broke, I am going to research the cost for replacement & repair, I will checkout you tube videos to help, I’ll make a decision and a PLAN to move forward.  

Instead of feeling frustrated, angry or stuck that “bad things happen to me.” I can choose action that moves forward,

If you have anxiety and are not yet skilled at planning, time-management and goal setting, my course Cultivate Clarity just might be right for you.

Stefanie Melo, Holistic Life and Faith Coach
I’m Stefanie and I am here for you, mama. 

I had expectations of feeling purpose and fulfillment in motherhood. Instead, I experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, isolation and a crisis of faith. 
Feeling like I couldn't be the mom I wanted to be to my five children, I began a journey of deconstructing and challenging everything I thought I believed. It was scary and messy. It felt like heresy! It also led to a deeper faith in Jesus, more peace, and a wholeness I didn't know was possible. 

Today, I am based in Arizona where I Montessori homeschool my 5 children ages 2-10 with my husband, Hernando. I am alligned with my calling as a feminist Jesus lover and a holistic coach to help mamas who are at any point in their evolving journey of faith to reclaim a little more sparkle! 
I coach women to understand and integrate their beliefs, thoughts, and emotions to create a life that offers more clarity, more peace, more joy — a life that is simply better.
I offer a unique approach to life coaching, bringing a wealth of professional expertise including: productivity, planning, massage therapy, infant bonding, fertility enhancement, birth work, postpartum support, breastfeeding support, youth and children’s ministry and Montessori education training.
If you are looking for support that acknowledges your mind, body, spirit and human need for community, I am the coach for you!
