What if This Were All Right?
What if This Were All Right?

Comparison is the Death of Joy

Mark Twain said "Comparison is the death of joy." Absolutely. Each of us has a unique path. It's all ours. The most important thing we can do is to focus our attention on being who WE most want to be on that path. Right now. This moment. It's a big and beautiful job. And it's enough.

For Quick Stress Relief, Take a Dose of Pure Play!

click to view detail
After 25 years as a playologist (a teacher and student of play), I still stand in absolute awe at the power of pure play!  

What do I mean by pure play? It's the kind of thing we do simply because we like it - no other reason in particular.  Someone says “Why do you paint?” and we say “I don´t know, I just love it”.   Pure play is anything that makes your heart sing - anything you love to do “just because”.  For example, I LOVE to go to the ocean when the tide is low, take off my shoes and so...

As you may have heard, the miracle of brain plasticity tells us that we can reprogram the brain at any age.  The brain can learn to slow down the constant thinking process (& the common process of thoughts jumping from one topic to another randomly) and instead relax, focus, calm the body`s stress response, foster better sleep, and so much more.

And creating this amazing shift is much easier than you might think.  Research has demonstrated that by sitting and mindfully breathing for 3 minutes...

Tapping Into Intuition for Relaxed Decision Making

click to view detail
Time and time again people tell me that when faced with a challenging decision or situation, they feel overwhelmed with the amount of information and choices available to them.   This is a common scenario in a world that, for many of us, seems to be more information driven all the time.   E.O. Wilson puts it this way:  “We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.”
