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…

Gratefulness is the Vitamin C of Daily Life

Gratefulness is a very potent practice for up-leveling your happiness. It’s like taking regular doses of Vitamin C to support your health and immunity. Being in Gratitude is even more powerful. It works on your emotional and mental well being! Here’s how it works: when we appreciate all that we have-especially the good things in our lives, it expands us. Practicing gratefulness on a daily basis has us focus on those things that fill us up and keep us present. When we are filled up-we’re not in a state of “lack” or “wishing” we had…

Personal Musings on Taxes & Holidays

As the deadline for filing taxes here in the US looms before us, I have to say I am extremely grateful that my wonderful husband gets ours done early. I know this time of the year can be a stressor for many people. On top of that, there are a couple of holidays and possibly even spring break time, depending on where you live. How do you keep the calm through all this? As we are in the month of Stress Awareness…take note: does waiting until the last minute to do your taxes stress you…

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…
