Grateful We Survived!

My husband and I recently had an experience that was rather scary and to say the least-stressful. We were driving down the freeway in the HOV lane doing 69 mph when the car-a 2015 Subaru Outback that has been well maintained-went into a screeching skidding stop! My husband did not have his foot on the brake. He was able to pull over to the shoulder, but we were still sticking out in the HOV lane a bit, as the shoulder was not really wide at that place. We were very fortunate that no one was…

Ready to Make THIS Year Extraordinary?

Ready to Make This New Year Extraordinary? It’s the beginning of a new year and it’s time to hit the refresh and reset buttons! I am totally in on looking forward to a “new” year, as so many people are-especially after the year we just had with the pandemic and all the political and social unease. Yet, as tempting as it is to make a list of all the things I want to achieve this year and call them my New Year’s Resolutions, I haven’t done it, nor will I. Why? Because New Year’s Resolutions…

Change is hard!

Let’s get real. Humans are notorious for not liking change. And, this year, we’ve had to deal with lots of changes, right? That can be stressful all on its own. All the uncertainties we’ve faced, maybe even having loved ones or close friends, people we know of…become sick from the virus or worse… Then comes along the holidays and we want nothing else but to feel some normalcy and have them be same. But, we know they can’t be. We know it’s best to keep our gatherings so much smaller this year so we are…

Overcoming Overwhelm

Overcoming Overwhelm Look in any thesaurus, and the synonyms for overwhelm are pretty awful: overpower, subdue, oppress, quash, engulf, swallow, submerge, bury, suffocate. None of those words are very inviting and certainly don’t have me rushing to sign up to experience any of them. I imagine you feel the same way. Yet, to anyone who’s experienced overwhelm, and that’s plenty of us, those words may be all too familiar. Whether the overwhelm is sudden or cumulative, chronic or acute, the feeling is one of drowning, immobility and powerlessness. During those times, everything feels too big.…

Fall is Reboot Time!

Welcome to Fall! (at least in the northern hemisphere!) It’s reset and reboot time! Time to reassess how to move forward even as the world seems chaotic with pandemic issues as well as all the political and social unrest. With all that is happening in our world today, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. These are unprecedented times. If you’re a parent with school age and/or college age children, you are needing to navigate the ins and outs of supporting your children with online learning. Or…you are dealing with the concerns of sending them back out…

5 Ways to get the most out of your relaxation time

5 Ways to get the most out of your relaxation time: Focus on your breathing. Choose a comfortable place to sit or lie down. Close your eyes, if you are comfortable doing so to keep out any external distractions. Take in a deep belly breath-let your belly expand….and then slowly release it. You can choose to bring your forefinger and thumb together on one or both hands which signals the body you are relaxing. You might even press them lightly together on the inhale and release them on the exhale. Alternately, place your hands on…
