Establishing Clear And Healthy Boundaries

Establishing clear and healthy boundaries that honor you and others is a vital ingredient of healthy living! Wikipedia defines personal boundaries as being guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify for themselves what are reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave around him or her and how they will respond when someone steps outside those limits. When you don’t have clear and healthy boundaries set in place other people will step over the line without realizing it. It is important that you honor...

How to start building a more fulfilling—and happy life!

“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it fearlessly.” ― Steve Maraboli  Okinawa is the southernmost region of Japan and consists of thousands of tiny islands dotting the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Those islands happen to be the home of some of the healthiest and happiest people on the planet. Why? There are many reasons, of course, but one of the most important is that Okinawans have a strong sense of purpose. Okinawans are known for maintaining a positive outlook on...

We achieve happiness through one pointed attention!

Multitasking—keeping a million balls in the air—this is the sign of a successful person, right? Wrong! Productivity and sense of well-being decrease when we have a scattered focus. In addition, when we are overburdened by details it is harder to be present in the moment, making it harder to connect with people and feel supported. There are inherent rewards to having one pointed attention. Our sense of well-being, happiness, concentration, memory and productivity are all improved. Slowing down and taking in one thing at a time gives us...

Connecting With Nature Inspires Happiness!

Being outside in nature inspires feelings of awe and wonder and acquaints us with our higher self. ~ Gena Livings Our lives are so scheduled today that we seldom have a moment to collect our thoughts.  Between the demands of work, family, and social activities, little time remains for personal contemplation and connecting with our true spirit.  And, even when free moments do arise, we often fill the time with television, or the internet.  There is nothing necessarily wrong with these activities, but they can rob us of a great treasure by...

Happiness Is Achieved By Re-programming Your Subconscious Mind!

In order to achieve happiness we learned that friendships and a strong support system are a source of well-being. If you really are serious about changing your life for the better, you also have to take steps to change your belief system by reprogramming your thoughts. I’m talking about “subconscious” re-programming.  You see, what you may not realize is that every thought you have that the subconscious mind processes, has an effect on what is “stored” and then “retained” in your subconscious mind. Stuff like watching...

Friendships Are a True Source of Happiness!

“When we surround ourselves with “positive” energy people – we become a positive energy person.” ~ Gena Livings Having a strong social support system (friends) is one of the best ways for us to maintain a positive mind-set.  If you want to grow and realize your best self and become more positive, you need to surround yourself with positive nourishing people who will keep you motivated when you are feeling down and give you that extra push when you need it.   True friends can and will improve our lives.

How To Change Negative Thoughts To Happy Thoughts!

Most people can relate with the fact that sometimes, it’s just hard to always see things in a positive light. From time to time, there will be self-doubt that makes you feel afraid.   Self-doubt becomes an overwhelming obstacle whose voice is so loud in your mind that you begin to believe the messages are actually true. You don’t always have to be happy every single minute of the day. We all experience moments of unhappiness. When your unhappiness is prolonged, due to negative thinking, however, that’s when it’s time to challenge the...

Don’t get stuck in your negative thinking!!

Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will ~ Zig Ziglar What feelings, thoughts, emotions and beliefs are being generated in your mind? As discussed earlier in the week, before you can break free from negative thoughts, ideas, and beliefs about yourself, your body, and your life, you must first become “aware” of the thoughts that you think on a regular basis. Negative thoughts and emotions let us know that something in our lives is out of balance. They can provoke us to action, help us make decisions...

Your Energy Affects Your Moods And Your Well-Being!

The two types of energies we possess are negative and positive energy. Positive energy  makes us feel happy, energized, full of life, inspired, motivated, and healthy; while negative energy on the other hand makes us feel tired, unhappy, sad, depressed, and angry but increased levels of negative energy will ultimately create dis-ease in the body. If your mind is producing thoughts of stress, anxiety and insecurity, whether that is through making you believe that you are not quite good enough the way you are, or that something is wrong with...

Happiness & The Gratitude Mindset
