    The Flourishing Body

    Reaction Time

    There is always a three part process in any reaction we have toward other people. 1. The other person’s behavior, 2. The moment we choose our response, 3. Our reaction. When I pause in the moment between someone’s action and my reaction I have an opportunity to notice all my choices. When I pause between […]

    Resentment

    Resentment is a heavy burden to carry so why not let it go? But how? Resentment grows from an unresolved anger and belief that you have been wronged. Resentment often causes bitterness and robs you of joy, compassion, and happiness. Remember, you can’t control what others do (or did), but you can control how you respond […]

    Your Most Important Decision This Morning Decision

    Good Morning. Imagine your three roommates just woke up to a beautiful morning. The pessimist says, “What’s all that racket? Turn off that light. No wonder I can’t sleep. I’m getting up. What day is it? Ugh. I’m just not a morning person. I’m turning on the TV. Who took my coffee cup? The apathetic […]

    Quality vs Quantity

    “We cannot do all things.”—Virgil We are each limited in terms of time and energy. If we try to do too much, we do everything half-rate and we accomplish less and quality suffers.

    Be Brave

    Talk to a stranger today. When we’re growing up we are often told to be wary of strangers, and to speak only to people we know and trust. And while that point of view makes good safety sense for young children, as adults it can lead us to become closed-off and isolated to the people […]

    Serenity Now.

    For many people, the word serenity” seems to conjured up images of lethargy, apathy, resignation, or grim-faced endurance. Serenity hardly seems like a desirable state of mind. But for me, serenity means none of those things. Serenity for me is simply a clear-eyed and realistic way of seeing the world, accompanied by inner peace and […]

    Results, Results, Results…

    We are a results driven society. Too often we get caught in the habit of thinking that results are the most important thing in our lives? How often do we fear that we’re failing at something just because we don’t see immediate and quantifiable results of our efforts? I believe that even when we don’t […]

    Live and Let Live

    “When nobody around you seems to measure up, it’s time to check your yardstick”. I read this quote recently and it encouraged me to be honest with myself. Being overcritical and irritable is common to many of us, it certainly is to me, especially if I’m not mindful. We may pass through the day with […]
