After studying stress management for over thirty years, I have some simple but life altering techniques, observations and realizations I hope to share with you.
We all have the power to transform the natural stress that comes from living into energy capable of improving our physical and spiritual health.
Secret number one is that the essence of life is transformation. These simple words hold the key for changing your life for the better. Join me and see if it is not so. These are thoughts for the day that can transform your life and the lives of others.
Cherish your pets and the lives of all animals. They are gifts to us and can be dear friends.
Remember to look for all those blessings we take for granted. The breeze in the trees, the sound of singing birds, the laughter of a child, these are all blessings we can enjoy!
Look at your surroundings as if you were a visitor.
Love. Do a kindness for someone.
“Humble beginnings or wealth from the start, what truly matters are things of the heart”.
Take your family for a walk, or just do something spontaneous for fun together.
Don’t keep yourself in a prison. Take a break from your electronics and refresh the memory of talking to a real human, or sitting in the sunshine!
Take a breath. Stretch. Smile.
Make a point of actually playing with your children while they are small. Catch a fish, catch a ball, catch precious moments that are only there for one short period of time.
Watch the sun rise as darkness lifts, watch the sunset. How many times have you left to see the stars at night or revel in the full moon? Not enough in a lifetime for me.
If you can’t leave – take a mental vacation. Even if it’s just for a minute or two, visualize a favorite place. Listen to the sounds of nature. Take a breath and use your mind to renew your zest for life.
Cherish the earth. It is our home.
Cherish your body. It is the only place your Spirit has to live!
Don’t let the sour expressions or negative attitudes of people affect your day. Do not forget to laugh. It is healing!
Thank your Creator for the multitude of every day blessings we take for granted! Sacrifice a bit of your time for someone who needs help, or a hug!
It is a choice. Let your light shine through and be grateful for small miracles. Start a cycle of sharing smiles and positive thoughts.
YOU CAN DO IT! CREATE a wonderful day. If you have made poor choices – you are the only one that can make a move onward and upward. Love yourself too!
