Find Your Peace

Organize Your Life

We all know the feeling of trying to find something in our closet, drawer, or cabinet and coming up empty-handed.  The frustrating feeling of not being able to find something is actually bad for your health. For the hundredth time you tell yourself it’s time to get organized. You might even feel anxious and overwhelmedContinue reading “Organize Your Life”

Be Your Best Self

Each of us has an idea of what is the best version of ourselves.  Ask yourself, “Am I the best rendition of myself?”  Most of us would like to think that we have become our best self and are living our best life possible.  But the truth is, we may not be there yet. “WhatContinue reading “Be Your Best Self”

Be Spontaneous

I am the type of person that generally does not do things spontaneously, I’m a planner.  I like to schedule my activities and appointments on my calendar and plan my time accordingly.  My husband, however, tends to be more of a spontaneous person.  He doesn’t like to plan things too far in advance but prefersContinue reading “Be Spontaneous”

Stay In Your Lane

These days, people often use the phrase “Stay in your own lane” to mean minding your own business.  It can mean, don’t tell me what to do, how to raise my child, or how to live my life. This phrase may be used as a term of admonishment or advice against those who express thoughtsContinue reading “Stay In Your Lane”

Enjoy The Little Things

Enjoying the little things in life involves focusing our attention on what is pleasurable, nurturing, and sustaining in our lives and away from those events that are annoying, frustrating, or hurtful. It means practicing gratitude for those everyday things that are easy to take for granted or miss altogether. In the sweetness of friendship letContinue reading “Enjoy The Little Things”

Keep Calm

We do not have control over the events that are happening in the world around us, but we do have control over the way we react to these events.  We have control over our internal thoughts and external behaviors that can help us to remain calm. Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, butContinue reading “Keep Calm”

Prosperity

Most of us think of prosperity as the type of success that comes from having a lot of money. The Middle English/old French root word, prosperus, simply means “doing well.”  The Latin word also means “fortunate,” and the word prosperity does have a certain element of good luck. Some people connect prosperity to happiness, andContinue reading “Prosperity”

It is OK to Be Not OK

During this extremely difficult time of Covid-19, quarantining, financial insecurity, and political division in our country, it is OK to be not OK.   One breath at a time. One day at a time. Wake up, and be shredded. Cry for a while. Then stop crying and go about your day. You’re not okay, butContinue reading “It is OK to Be Not OK”

Don’t Worry

Many of us have made a practice of worrying.  Even if we know it is not serving us any purpose, we cannot stop worrying.  We think about what happened yesterday and we are convinced it is a sign of horrible things that will happen tomorrow.  To be free from the pain and stress of worrying,Continue reading “Don’t Worry”

Live Inside Out

On any given day, we have a barrage of things coming at us.  It may be people expecting things of us, us expecting things of ourselves, stressful or sad news.  These things may cause us to lash out at whoever or whatever is closest to us.  We may find ourselves getting angry at an innocentContinue reading “Live Inside Out”

Be Happy, Be Happy Now

What is your idea of success? If the purpose of life is to achieve happiness why don’t we make it our practice so that we are guaranteed to attain this? Success is generally measured by the outcome of our efforts, but may I suggest we also measure success by our input.  By doing this, asContinue reading “Be Happy, Be Happy Now”

What Do You See?

How many times do we look at something and not really see it? For example, does your watch have Roman numerals, Arabic numerals, or none at all? What color is your neighbor’s front door?  Don’t peak – just think about whether you’ve ever noticed. Most of us walk around unobservant to almost everything going onContinue reading “What Do You See?”

Just Breathe

For many of us, relaxation means zoning out in front of the TV at the end of a stressful day. But this does little to reduce the damaging effects of stress. To do this we need to get into a state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress. What isContinue reading “Just Breathe”

Reminisce

Reminiscing is sharing our thoughts and feelings of our experiences to recall and reflect upon important events of our life. The ability to remember and think about these times helps older adults recall who they used to be in order to help them define their identity in the current moment. The stories of the pastContinue reading “Reminisce”
