– Stressed? –

Stressed Spelled Backwards Equals D-e-s-s-e-r-t-s -Temple Hayes-

When we were kids we had so many structured “taking care “me time”. We had time at recess and physical education and time to draw and question and play with friends. As adults, we need to remember this reality and attempt to put it into perspective. Life is not interesting and motivating if we only work and have no play or ME time. If you take the words:
AccomplishMEnt
AchieveMEnt
TiME
MEmory
EmpowerMEnt

…they all share the word ME

ME time doesn’t have to be for long periods of time. In stress management we use to identify with all kinds of ideas that could help by keeping it simple:

A walk around the building at the office or hospital
Taking different roads to our work
Humorous gadgets for the workplace that we could use to tease coworkers or patients
Pets that give us love and energy
A movie day
Time near or at the water
Exercise
Blowing bubbles
Writing a note to someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile
Mend your heart
Forgive yourself
Take a dance class
Do Taebo
Watch a comedy
Look for a butterfly
Get out in Nature

Do something different every week even if it’s just buying something new at the grocery store.
Buy yourself a small gift or get something you’ve always wanted…lay it away if necessary. However, do not go out of your means……that adds stress.

Are You Awake?

First, you must realize you are asleep, then you are awake. Then you must die, so you can be born. You can not be born until you die and you can not die until you wake. Jungian psychology I have always enjoyed the story of a multitude of people with Buddha wanting to know how…

Lesson of the Sequoia Tree

The Methodist Class Meeting was much like the Giant Sequoia Trees in California. Just like the Methodist Class Meeting, the Great Sequoias “hold each other up.” They may reach a height of 311 feet, an age of 3200 years. They often weigh 2.7 million pounds. Their bark on the average is 31 inches thick. Their…

Don’t Give Up

Don’t Give Up

Have you ever heard the statement,” My life is falling apart so it can come together in a new way”? There are times right before we give up that things fall into place. Steven Covey emphasizes that in order to achieve success, you must keep the end in mind. Ask yourself where you would like…
