Mindful Monday: What are You Thankful For?

I know we should be thankful every day not just the week of Thanksgiving.  But, this is always a fun exercise I do with my kids each year, and it is fun to see how their answers change over the years.  I am doing it with my daughter this year.  She is 15.  I gave her until Thanksgiving day to complete it and then I will share both of our answers on Thanksgiving Eve to this blog.  If you would like to join in click on the printable template below, print it, answer it, take a picture of it and then share it in the comments to the post that will be created on Thanksgiving Eve.  There are no right or wrong answers.  If your kids or grandkids join in, save them and compare them as the years go on.  It is fun to see how perspectives change with varying age groups.

I did not get to create my podcast last week.  We had no internet for a day and a half.  I will not be doing one this week, so next week will be the third podcast.  Remember you must sign up to receive the podcast until I upgrade this blog.  I will try to keep up with my regular posts this week, but with the holiday I am not so sure.  I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving, and don’t forget Christmas and New Year’s is coming, and I would love to be your Health Coach.  Contact me using the form below for all questions and comments.



I Want To Be Happy!

Sticking with the New Years Resolution theme, a lot of resolutions I see online are people saying, I Want To Be Happy!  Well that is great!  Everyone should want to be happy.  Why would you want to be sad?  But, what does that mean?  How do you get there?  Do you even know what makes you happy?

According to the dictionary the definition of happy is:  feeling or showing pleasure or contentment.  That sounds pretty self explanatory.  But, is it?  You need to ask yourself some questions.  Here are a few to start with.

1-  Am I happy?

2-  What would make me happy?  Money, a new job, any job, no job, being thin, being not thin, having more hair, travel, relationship, etc?  You have to decide what will make you happy before you can be happy.

3-  Do I know how to be happy?  This one will surprise you if you think about it.

4-  How do I get to the happy?  It is a process, and for some it is a lot harder.  You need to set goals, small attainable goals, and then move through the process.
