Resilience and the healing power of music.

Resilience and the healing power of music.

It’s been a tough couple of months. My peaceful living has really been put to the test. I’ve had to make sure that I take extra-special care of myself in order to stay strong under the pressure of stressful times!

In recent Vlogs & Blogs I talked about how to stay strong in the face of bullying and how to bounce back after a particularly hectic time.

Both of those topics underlay this week’s topic of resiliency.

For today, I want to just give a little lead-up to Wednesday’s “Wellness Wednesday” Facebook Live VLOG by talking about MUSIC!

So when my going gets tough & I need to build my resiliency, I turn on some empowerment music and dance and sing!

IS FOOD SAFETY STRESSING YOU OUT? #TroubleWithChicken

food safety

I’m contaminated???

Okay, normally I write about things that are stressing you out and how to deal with them. But my guess is that food safety is not something that is high on everyone’s list of stressors. Again, contrary to what I normally do, this time I’m going to tell you that food safety is something you actually should be a little stressed about. But not to fear… I am also going to give some tips about how to hopefully alleviate that stress! Food safety IS NOT something we should need to be stressed about in this country! (more…)

MOVING AND CHANGING: HOW LOOKING FORWARD REDUCES ANXIETY

 

Normally I recommend staying in the present moment to relieve anxiety: you know, one-day-at-a-time and all that. And I do truly believe in most circumstances it is an excellent way to avoid stress. Under some circumstances, however, looking forward can actually be more of an anxiety reducer. (more…)
