What Makes You Happy?

What makes you happy? I want to keep todays post simple.  This pandemic has been hard on everyone, every single person in this world has been affected one way or another, and so I want to give you something new to do, and I really hope you will do it.  Don’t think too much about it, just do it. Today and everyday this weekend, I want you to do one thing that makes you happy!  Whatever that may be!

Have you heard about the 4-7-8 breath technique?

  Have you noticed how deep you breathe when you’re by the ocean, a lake or in the mountains?  The air is crisp, fresh, and cleaner than we are used to and you naturally just want to take it all in.  I myself am a very shallow breather, I tend to get headaches, and a couple of years ago, I started getting regular migraine headaches, preceded by an aura.  Mostly due to stress, but when I was researching about them, how deep you breathe can affect headaches and migraines, which made perfect sense, clearly our brains need more oxygen.  I…

Have an Attitude of Gratitude

  A very dear friend of mine passed away recently.  She was the kindest most genuine soul you could ever meet. (I know a lot of people say that, but she truly was)  Our city newspaper even did a write up about her, she touched many many lives, by just being herself. She lived every day of her life in complete gratitude.  I had never witnessed anything like it before, she would wake up and be grateful for the rain or sun, it didn’t matter, because you couldn’t have flowers or plants or a garden without either.  She had the…

You are enough!

Its funny how we essentially all feel the same way, but think that we are alone.   A very good friend of mine came with me to a weekend long self development seminar. And during one of the lunch breaks, we decided to go to a mall close by where there was a cute ‘leave a note box’ for others at a cafe. You would take a note that someone had written and leave a note for someone else to read. I’m assuming they were all positive sayings, as that was the intention of the note box. We each took…

Why Journaling can improve your mental health

I know you have heard it before, and I have said it before, Journal, everyone says to journal.  But have you tried it and experienced the benefits?   I used to “Journal” when I was young. Only back then we used to call it a “Diary” in which I still have my first one. I got it for Christmas 1991, and started it January 1st 1992. It has bears and a bunny on it, with a lock and key (I lost the key.)  Its funny how different life is now from when you’re 10-11 years old. LOL In 1992 I…

Quick tips for better sleep.

I used to suffer from mild insomnia when I was a teenager, it took me what felt like forever to fall asleep at night. But after I had my baby I had to learn to fall asleep fast, or I wouldn’t get much sleep between feedings. Since then I had done a bunch of research to see what causes insomnia. I found out that there are unfortunately several factors, and even food. What we eat before bed and even what we eat that morning can have an effect on our sleeping. Here’s my tips to better sleep. First, go to…

What is self care and why is it important?

In a nut shell… SANITY!   Seriously, when we don’t take care of ourselves, we end up getting into robot mode. You know what I’m talking about… Wake up, make coffee, shower, get the kids up, feed the kids, get them to school, argue with your partner about what they did or didn’t do the night before, go to work, only to be bombarded with office politics and gossip… then drive home in gridlock to get your kids from daycare and rush to feed them something, get them to their after school activity, hear them whine about how tired they…
