More Tips for Holiday Ease

  Continuing on from last week’s Tips for Keeping Your Sanity and more over the Holidays! If you celebrate Christmas, it’s only 2-3 days away…and you may at this time find yourself either in a tizzy with still a lot on your to do list, or possibly wondering how all the get togethers will go…or maybe you are simply exhausted from all you’ve already done and wish you could have some down time. Whatever is happening for you…I have a couple of tips, in addition to the one you received a week ago, to help…

It Was An Amazing Journey!

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” Nelson Mandela.   My husband and I recently returned from an amazing 6 week journey! (More about that shortly.) And, we returned to basically summer weather. That’s is more unusual here in the Pacific Northwest in October, than it is common. I must admit, it was nice to feel the warm air and see the sun when we’re used to having more cooler temps in October and if not downright rain-at least some drizzly days. But then shortly after arriving, we realized the sun was trying to…

Inspiration for Upcoming Mothers’ Day

I’m making this super quick. Mother’s Day is happening on May 8th. Whether you are a mother or not, we all have a mothering aspect to us. We mother our human children as well as our furry children, our friends sometimes, and our gardens, too. Mothering is a verb. And, sometimes we need some R&R from all that mothering! So, today, I’m offering you some ways to get that R & R either for yourself or as a gift for the mothers in your life! Check out the package of audios I put together to…

Exercise & Happiness-What’s the Connection?

Having a bad day? Feeling down? One of the ways to increase your happiness level is to exercise-move your body! Moving our bodies releases those wonderful feel-good hormones called endorphins, as well as other mood-enhancing bio-chemicals—and they are all legal!? The effects of these mood enhancers can last up to 12 hours! That’s a lot of mood enhancement without putting artificial chemicals in your body! Exercise also works on reducing the levels of stress hormones that get produced when we’re stressed and anxious. So, not only are we getting a boost of mood enhancers, we’re…

Does Exercise Make You Happy?

If you have been following me for a while, you know I walked the Camino de Santiago from Porto, Portugal to Santiago, Spain last Fall (of 2021) with my husband and some friends. We covered at least 160 miles. That’s a lot of walking-but to be fair, it was done over 2 weeks with a few rest days in between. Nonetheless, we walked 8-10 miles a day. It was great! It put smiles on all of our faces-at least most of the time. Maybe not so much when it was hot and we were walking…

What makes you feel good?

In a recent article on the Energy of Happiness, I invited you to think and feel about what either expands you or contracts you. An easy way to increase our overall happiness level is to do things that have us feel expansive-on a daily basis. What if you simply made a list of those things? And, what if you looked at that list everyday and focused on doing, experiencing, and/or thinking about at least one thing on that list? Can you imagine how doing that on a daily basis would implant a happiness habit for…
