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…

April is Stress Awareness Month.

Being aware of the stress and what stresses us out in our lives is vital for us to be able to have more happiness in our lives. There has been lots of news articles, studies, reports and more that tell us how stressful these last 2 years since the pandemic began, has been. And, while these last 2 years have been especially challenging and stress and anxiety producing, the pandemic is not the only thing to blame. Stress, it seems, has become for many, a part of everyday life. We over schedule ourselves, we over…

The Energy of Happiness

I know I feel uplifted when I’m around someone who emanates an inner calm, an inner peace, and/or a generally happy attitude. I’m imagining you have noticed this, too? It’s the same when you are around someone who is moody, down, negative, and/or complaining. You probably have noticed you feel less energetic, less joyful, and generally not so positive. Science has shown everything is energy, including right down to all the cells in our bodies that make us who we are. Energy “vibrates” at various frequencies. And, we are aware of those frequencies, even if…
