    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

    I think sharpening the saw is a very important part of life. You never really stop learning, right? Professional development is so important with so mnay careers, because there are always new laws, theories, and techniques coming out. As a writer, you never stop honing your grammar practice, as...

    Mindful Eating

    I recently read an article that popped up on my computer about mindfulness when eating. It stated that chewing several times rather than the fast-paced five or six chews, and really paying attention to what you're eating can help promote weight loss. I'll admit, I have a bit of an issue with...

    Exercise for Sleep

    I've been having some trouble sleeping lately. I'm not the most athletic person, and I have heard that working out or exercising right before bed can help you to sleep. The few times I have done this before bed, I feel more energized, so this seems to be a bit conflicting in theory. Has anyone...

    Yoga: physical and mental benefits

    I have used yoga several times to deal with stress. A lot of it is focused on breathing as you work through specific poses. Focusing on breathing really allows you to relax. At the end of nearly every yoga routine I have done, there are a few moments where you center yourself. You lie on your...

    Learning How to Say No

    I wanted some opinions on this idea - learning how to say "no." We all hate to be that person that turns someone down for a favor, an invite, or any other opportunity asked of them. Sometimes life just gets bogged down by too many items. So, how do you say "no?" Do you feel guilty about it? Is...

    Weight Managament

    Everyone struggles with their weight, right? Even those who, I enviously think of, have trouble putting weight on. I'm curious to hear anyone success story about how they managed their weight healthfully. Personally, I've tried Weight Watchers, points systems, Cooking Light Diet, etc., and none...

    CANDLE: LIGHTING THE WAY OF OTHERS

    I think this idea of a candle person is incredibly interesting. I've never heard the term before, but it does work quite well for those who act as beacons, spread the light, and are a constant reminder for your spiritual prayer and health. There are people in my life, that no matter how badly...

    Animals and Health

    I guess this is why we so often hear about therapy dogs. I've heard there are ranches where people can care for horses to help relieve stress and anxiety as well. The simple action of taking care of such as magnificent animal really helps to center oneself. I think something like that would be...

    Honesty and Modesty in Self-Development

    I enjoy writing, and I think it is safe to say that it is nearly impossible not to remain modest. How can you not when other people read what you write, and then critique it? Sure, it'd be easy to blame the reader and say "They just don't get it," but who is that helping? The idea of modesty and...

    Past Lives

    So often, we hear of people with fantastic stories of remembering past lives. I'm really torn on whether I believe in it or not. I know that there are times that I feel an extreme kinship to a certain place or era. For instance, there are so many people who consider themselves Egyptophiles...

    Animals and Health

    I'm a crazy cat lady. Yes, I have four cats and am unmarried. There is a stigmatization about this going around, and lately, it seems culture is trying to put a positive spin on it (which makes me happy). There's a ton of reports saying having a pet is good for you, and I know that spending time...

    Using Rubik's Cube as a Memory Enhancer

    I always liked Soduku. I think it really focuses my brain and helps me to spend some time centering my mind to one task. In our hectic lives, it's nearly impossible to avoid having more than one stimuli vying for our attention at any given time. I think focusing your concentration can really...

    The First Step is Always a Plan

    This is a bit of the old thought of whether or not you have control over your own destiny. In a way, you look at it as whether or not God would help you if you just sat around waiting for opportunity to come to you. You need to plan but plans always are led astray. How many of you can actually...

    Follow Your Heart, It's Not Just A Cliche

    Hi guys, I'm a believer in following your heart as well. As a matter of fact, it's always been my motto, as lame as that may be. I feel like whenever you listen to what your heart is telling you, it may lead you away from the popular or common decisions in life, but it often is what makes you...

    Learn something new every day

    I think life is a never-ending learning experience. Take reading, for example. Anything you read, whether it is fiction or nonfiction, the person who wrote that has a different set of life skills and experience than you do. You can learn what it's like to live in a different climate, how one...

    Finding Happiness in Social Media

    Technology and social media bombard us at every turn. Even our phones provide notifications when people update their twitter and Facebook. I'm curious what technquies you use to help cancel out all of these ego-blasting posts. Yes, I have turned off my notifications, but how can you enjoy social...

    Lessons I Have Learned about Happiness

    I think happiness comes with wisdom. I've noticed over time that people always seem to hate they way they look and never want pictures taken. However, when you look at pictures taken even a few months ago, you always think "Wow, I looked so good." Since I realized this, I think happiness is...

    Your Go-To Form of Growth

    With the boon in technology, I find that using apps on my phone or tablet work best. In fact, I have a subscription to one meditation app. It was a bit pricey at first, but the whole year is paid up now. I can go on whenever I want, and there always seems to be new meditation techniques, a cute...
