Be Kind To Yourself – Take That Pause

One cold evening, as I sat relaxed sipping a warm cup of tea, I experienced a nice friendly feeling – a sense of pristine calmness and appreciation of a divine and beautiful moment. And so just this small incident, got me thinking about our present day lives, which has come to be so dominated by the machine centered demands of the day. We don’t run technology any more. In fact, it is technology that is running us. We are controlled by it 24/7. Having this immense need to be connected to the world outside us, we are constantly checking on our messages, emails, and other updates. Even if we do get some free time our thoughts keep us occupied, planning…

The Importance of Self-Kindness

I have been struggling with postpartum anxiety. It is really hard to deal with, and even harder to admit.

The Kindness of Wellness Checks

t has recently struck me that one of the kindest things we can ever do for anyone is a wellness check on them.  This kind of check doesn’t have to be one only done by police officers on elders.  When was the last time you checked in on a vulnerable neighbor, friend or family member just to make sure they were okay today? A case in point, I love to see in the movies how, during some disaster like a coming storm, younger folks seem to always be checking in on their senior neighbors as if it were the most natural thing.  However, I have found myself asking, how often do wellness checks actually happen in today’s wary, distracted society? neighbors…
