Organized table with a candle and decor behind it

No matter how much clutter in my home and office stresses me out, I still think to myself, “I’ll do that later.” Then I avoid it, only to be stressed out again the next time I see it. Sound familiar? I get it. When I’m busy, spending time decluttering is not high on my list […]

Notice Your “I’ll do that later” Voice!

Holiday Snoopy Coffee Mug

Sounds simple, right? Well, last night I practically inhaled my dinner while watching a TV show. After I finished eating, my brain told me I was still hungry (even though my stomach was full).

Taste your food (and coffee!)

It had been years since I felt such intense anxiety gripping the insides of my stomach. So many thoughts went through my mind – Why is this happening again?

I wear fun socks each day, and now I'm known as the "fun sock lady" at my gym!
- Anne H. (Virginia)

I go to the gym before the sun is up and lately I have been walking there without my headphones in to enjoy the quiet peacefulness of the city before everyone wakes up. It’s sort of a meditative way to begin the day instead of constantly having pods/music/radio in my ear.
- Andrew C. (Pennsylvania)

Our firm has appointed me as “minister of culture” and my job is to always look to boost morale with work events, happy hours, fun sports pools and contests, and ensure we all take moments out of our days/weeks/months to enjoy our time together as co-workers and friends. - Tony C. (Virginia)

Be grateful for all you have to be grateful! - Kevin D. (Iowa)

I try to get outside for a walk every day, either with my dog or by myself! - Lori B. (Ohio)

I take mini-breaks throughout the day to play pieces I enjoy on my piano!
– Alice S. (Minnesota)

I always try to project positive energy to those around me regardless of the day I’m having. I’d rather project positivity than bring others down with negativity.
