Saying “no” to the good to pursue the great mindset simplicity

How are we in the last few days of May? Is it just me, or has May simply flown by?

May is always a full month - I’ve learned that over many years, but I usually forget until it sneaks up on me. So when I find myself more overwhelmed than usual this time of year, I have to remind myself that...

Why you should be playing more - no matter what your age! having what matters simplicity well-being

I love a good obscure, little known “holiday”! 

Some are a little over the top, like “Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day” (January 22, in case you want to celebrate it next year.)

Being content: Is what you have the thing you hoped for? happiness mindset stress

Hello and Happy Monday!

The last few days have been a whirlwind for me - and it got me thinking of you and something you might resonate with.

Fact or fiction? Stress can be good for you! mindset stress well-being

April is Stress Awareness Month, so I wanted to spend a little time thinking with you about stress so you can be more aware of it (notice that it’s stress “awareness” month, not just stress “management” month.)

What is the definition of stress?

What's your greatest fear? Is it stopping you? change fear growth

Spring has finally arrived here in Minnesota. It took longer than usual by a few weeks, and I almost wiped a little tear of joy from my cheek when I looked at the extended forecast and saw that our daily high was over freezing for the foreseeable future, even shooting into the 60's and 70's.

Happy April! There’s still snow on the ground here in Minnesota, but spring is inevitable (it is inevitable, right?!? It’s been a very long winter.)

When doing nothing is really something self-care well-being

The end of March is around the corner. It's the end of the first quarter of the year. About 25% of 2023 is in the rear-view mirror.

If you're anything like me, it's flown by. As in, it feels like I just put away the holiday decorations and suddenly it's April next week. How is that possible?
