Managing Chaos with Compassion!!

I am getting ready for a key note speech and had the opportunity to interview people from the department of health. They talked about how the biggest changes in heath with young people are anxiety, depression, social disorders. Overall mental health challenges have spiked in our people today. Young people represent the future and are an out-picturing of the world and the adults that influence them. Adults are feeling the mental health challenge too. I recently heard a salon owner say we no longer have cable in the salon, because the news was causing too much anxiety for our clients and stylists.  They switched to strictly spa like music. Can I get an AMEN!!In my book titled Staying Calm in the Midst of Chaos I discuss how we manage both our internal and external chaos. The interesting part of life in 2017 is there seems to be plenty of unrest and external chaos to tango with. Which means we have to be very protective and manage our internal issues to stay in check.Compassion plays a significant role  in being more tolerant of young people and ourselves. If we constantly react or over react we are only ruining our own day. Days turn to months and the next thing you know you say 'that was a tough year'. I challenge you to find a way to cultivate more peace in your day. When we are peaceful in our hearts we can extend more compassion and tolerance to those around us. Develop rituals at morning or night to get centered. Put on Deva Premal music  to lift you...and reading inspirational messages helps too!!! Namaste

Tell the TRUTH...it's more Interesting!

Have you ever noticed how much movies and documentaries based on true stories grab our attention? Partly because we know it's not made up and partly because Truthful Matters are so compelling.
We are in some unprecedented times...have you noticed? Social Media has created a new world where what I say goes, even if I haven't got anything to back it up. The new genre of Fake News has a whole new following of junkies. People speak from the place of what can I get if I say this or that and it doesn't matter if it's untrue, as long as I keep getting more views.

RENEWAL...A New Lease on Life!!

Spring gives us the chance to begin a new. Fresh ideas, a new look at old situations... what we need to keep what & we need to release.
For example this is the time of year people get exercising and eating right. We have more energy for goodness sake.
Now some parts of the country may not be in full spring yet..
but it's there silently waiting and inviting us to renew.
Spring Renewal is part of Self Love.
We have to shed our old ways to start something new.

IGNITE your Passion...it's Spring!

During growth seasons in our lives we exert extra energy. When we take risks we stir up uncertainty and vulnerable feelings because we are out of our comfort zone. Anytime you take on extra responsibility or work, you need to give yourselfA Spring Break.

That doesn't mean you can just pack your bags and head to the Islands, but it does mean you can take time out and do some things that make your heart sing.
