“Focusing on what we’re thankful for can help us turn outward and express appreciation, especially during the holidays.” – Angela Nelson
Yes, the sentiment Eckhart Tolle (pronounced TOE-Lay) expresses in the quote above is a variation of the timeless advice of Buddhism and other teachings, but it bears repeating.
Here’s what I’m going to do this weekend.
Every time I notice my thoughts drifting to some event or experience from the past I’m going to use Tolle’s well-worded counsel as a mantra. I’ve been experimenting with this type of thought-control technique recently and it’s helped ease anxiety when it arises.
Do you have a favorite mantra-like phrase or affirmation?

This quote sums up my attitude lately. You have to open your mind and heart and allow change to happen. Try it and see what happens.
“There is always room for change, but you have to be open to that change.” – Kathryn Budig
We’ve all been there.
While on our path to self-improvement it seems like we’re stuck, or maybe not making a dent in those long-range goals.
Well, that’s when we must remember wellness is a lifelong journey and if it seems like we’re not doing anything substantial – it’s still okay.
Remember, every positive action, thought or intention is important – and it matters.
Here are the small things I’ve done recently that I think matter –
I drink more water throughout the day.
I read spiritual teachings or philosophy of the great masters for a few minutes each day.
I walk every day.
I’ve developed a brief yoga practice that I try to deepen each day.
I meditate at least ten minutes every day.
I don’t envy others (or at least catch my thinking when I do).
I remind myself to breathe consciously.
I bought an adult / mindfulness coloring book and work in it a few minutes each day.
What small, positive things have you done that you’d like to share?
