Self-Help Tip #38: Simplify & Declutter

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

In honor of Earth Day, I'm sending this belated invitation to join the movement that "challenges consumerism by advocating for a pared-down lifestyle."

A great way to start? GET ORGANIZED! In the video below, Professional Organizer Ulli Schilling shares helpful tips to tackle your Spring cleaning (purging)! Because "having fewer choices, possessions, and commitments can reduce stress...

Self-Help Tip #37: Get & Give Hugs

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Didn't you MISS human contact during the pandemic? (Hard to hug from a 6-foot distance!)

Thankfully, holidays like Ramadan, Passover, and Easter have brought us physically closer to friends and family. This will ultimately help us keep each other healthy! (Various scientific studies claim there are many health benefits to hugging and the oxytocin it brings.)

Self-Help Tip #36: Ask For Help

 
  

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

When we're born, we're literally HELPLESS and must depend on others for survival. (Then, we're typically in a similar state at the end of our life as well!) 

  • So why do we get uncomfortable asking for help during the middle part of our life?
  • Do we somehow forget that we are indeed dependent on each other!? 

All parents know that it takes a village, and that we MUST "...

Self-Help Tip #35: Go Organic

       

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.

. . . I remember hearing that perceptive phrase in this cartoon PSA, in 1983. (Sadly, I didn't internalize its truth, and instead proceeded to treat my body like a trash compactor - eating countless BAGS of sugary cookies and processed treats.)

Self-Help Tip #34: Move Those Legs

     

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Think about how grateful you are for your LEGS that move you all day! It's no wonder celebrities like Fred Astaire insured their legs (and in the case of David Beckham - for up to $195 Million!!)

So what insurance plan do YOU have to keep your sweet legs sturdy...?

Self-Help Tip #33: Consult A Guru

      

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Whether you're seeking enlightenment, perspective, or just some decent conversation, you may be tempted to consult a Guru (derived from the Sanskrit word "venerable").

A Guru is "a person with great intelligence who usually dispenses advice[or] spiritual guidance via oral teachings in an attempt to enlighten students, aka "followers."

Self-Help Tip #32: Create A Relaxation Ritual

    ...

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Do you make time to relax?

"According to the American Institute of Stress, the leading cause of stress - is the workplace." The good news? Because many of us had to combine our workplace into OUR place ... we're now able to create our own ways of relaxing on-site. (i.e. Who needs "MetroNap Energy Pods" - when you can just nap in your own bed?!)

Self-Help Tip #31: Unplug

    

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Remember life pre cell phone? Pre laptop? Now we're so tangled up, that it takes a VERY "conscious effort to reduce dependence on technology, by curbing or eliminating the use of digital and electronic devices."  

This weekend I went to my friend's farm in the countryside. I got wake up to the sound of a rooster, instead of an alarm clock. I got to listen to raindrops outside the...

Self-Help Tip #30: Do Some Chanting

  

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Many spiritual traditions incorporate chanting - "a rhythmic and repetitive form of singsong speech, often conducted as a meditative ritual." For example, you could chant "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" as part of the "Soka Gakkai tradition" . . . or the names of Indian Gods, during the call and response known as "Kirtan" - (My favorite being Krishna Das). But if you're trying chanting...

Self-Help Tip #29: Visit A Psychic?

 

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT Medical advice. Please read disclaimers.

Have you ever been in a situation (like an interview process, a courtship, or a good book), and wanted to "skip ahead" to see how everything works out . . . 

That niggling desire prompts some people to consult with a clairvoyant, tarot card reader, palm reader, or psychic - who all "claim to harness extrasensory perception with which they gather insight, predict future occurrences,...
