The Best Decision Making Tools: Stillness, Values and Body Wisdom

I’ve had the wind knocked out of me this week. For 7 days I’ve been sick. So sick that I have not been moving at all. I did try a ‘jog’ with Zoey our dog one day and I lasted less than 5 minutes.

Positivity Practices Are Not About Pretending. They’re About Possibility

When I learned the day before my flight to Nepal that I had a tear in the retina of my right eye, I remained optimistic that I would be able to make the trip. I wrote about how my regular daily practices were helping me cope with the situation.
