Here are a few things that I have discovered/noticed/practiced/was entertained by/etc over the last few weeks.
I would really love to share some awesome recipes and dishes with you but sadly, AGAIN today, I forgot my camera!! Erg! I hate that. But since I don’t have food to share, I’ll share some cool thoughts instead. 😉
- Yogic Breathing: Alternate nostril breathing. (sounds weird, but I swear it’s pretty cool…)
- Close the right nostril with your right thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Do this to the count of four seconds.
- Immediately close the left nostril with your right ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the right nostril, and exhale through this nostril. Do this to the count of eight seconds. This completes a half round.
- Inhale through the right nostril to the count of four seconds. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and exhale through the left nostril to the count of eight seconds. This completes one full round.
Start by doing three rounds, adding one per week until you are doing seven rounds.
-The exercise produces optimum function to both sides of the brain: that is optimum creativity and optimum logical verbal activity. This also creates a more balanced person, since both halves of the brain are functioning property.
-The yogis consider this to be the best technique to calm the mind and the nervous system.
- Destress: Take 10 minutes each day to relax. A lot of us, women especially, tend to pile on layers upon layers to life.
- This will not only help calm you down but help you gain the energy to perform at your peak.
- Take some time each day to mediate, sit quietly, stretch, something- just for you.
- Learn to say yes and learn to say no.
- As much as we would like to at times, we cannot do it all. Pick those things that you really want to do and let go of those you do not. 🙂
- Do more listening than talking
- Write down your goals and look at them daily. Not only will they be more attainable, but you just might reach them faster.
- Learn to say, “Oh well.” Some things we just can’t change.
Time is something we give to priority. Make the most of it.
And some questions…

(what should you really be doing, anyway?)
Working? Playing? Teaching? Studying? Or, Being? 😉
