BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Nov. 18 The economic slump has caused pessimism to spread across the U.S. faster than you can say "H1N1." According to the American Bankruptcy Institute, public bankruptcy filings in October rose 28% from the October 2008 figure. With numbers like these, it's no wonder why in a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll most Americans still feel that "our economic slide still has a ways to go up."

"Tough times test our ability to create a healthy work/life balance, particularly for moms. But it's more important than ever," says Myra Nourmand, author of From Homemaker to Breadwinner,

Nourmand is a top RealtorŪ, a mother of three grown children, a nationally honored philanthropist, and has been married to Saeed Nourmand for 39 years. At 7:00 p.m. (PST), on Wednesday, November 18, 2009, Nourmand will appear on The Holistic Success Show,

Every week, The Holistic Success Show aims to help viewers find peace in the present moment despite the difficulties of daily life. In addition to giving weekly advice on living a holistic lifestyle, both Dr. Robert Puff and Elizabeth Lozano, M.A., two Southern California therapists, interview top professionals who provide their insights into leading a successful life.

The show highlights what Dr. Puff and Ms. Lozano have learned counseling countless individuals in their private practice. The two are at the forefront of the holistic health movement, which balances career, family, community engagement, and physical and emotional health. According to them, the events of the past two years have made the need for holistic health more important than ever.

"Our goal is to reach out to more people than we ever could in our Newport Beach office. Now everyone can learn the wonders of being a healthy, vibrant human being, regardless of what the news says about the economy and the world," says Dr. Puff.

"Maintaining excellence in career, family, marriage, and community service is nearly impossible," says Nourmand. "And given the strains of the current recession many women are facing even bigger challenges: job loss, becoming a breadwinner, or being forced back to work."

Nourmand has seen the economic fallout in her real estate business as well. The downturn is by far the worst she's experienced in her 20-year career, but she remains optimistic. "It's all about perception. You can feel sorry for yourself, or you can embrace what's in front of you and make the best of it. Always ask yourself, 'How am I going to make this work?' Suddenly, you'll see opportunities," says Nourmand.

The Holistic Health Show airs every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. (PST) at There you can see current and past episodes.

Myra Nourmand is a top RealtorŪ and mother of three grown children: a physician, a Hollywood graphic design specialist, and the president of the family business, Nourmand & Associates.
