Increasing our mindfulness is a beautiful act of self care. Many people think meditation is the only way to practice mindfulness, but that is not true. Yes, meditation is a great way to be more mindful but it is not the only way. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programs and this quote is a reminder of a benefit of being more present, in the moment. 
Click HERE to watch facebook post of the news program where I talk about the mindful benefits of adult coloring books. Other activities like music, art, gardening, sitting at the beach and walking in nature are also opportunities to cultivate mindfulness by focusing on purpose, in the moment, non-judgmentally.

#MondayMotivation 7.6.20


There has been a lot of talk lately about what it means to be free. As we celebrate July 4th, let's keep in mind what the meaning of freedom really is. Peter Marshall articulated well how I have been feeling lately when he said that freedom is not the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. 
Think about the freedoms you think are being taken away and look closer at what is in the best interest of the greater community. As we move into re-opening businesses and the "new normal" please keep other people in mind.

What do we hold back because of fear? What is it we are afraid of? Failure? Being seen?
What would it look like to feel our fear and then open the door?

The problem is not that the world is a mess, but that we expect it to be otherwise. - Matt Haig

What if we could open up ourselves to the possibility that there is a deep pain underneath negativity. What would the world look like if we everyone felt seen and heard and loved?

Life is changing day by day and many of us are experiencing a wider range of emotions through this pandemic. Check in with your emotions and take a pause before making major changes and permanent decisions. What you are feeling is temporary. Keep that in mind.
