Playing with your child helps them to feel special. Rather than focus on their worries, it gives you and your child a chance to spend some valuable time together and reduces some of the tension that accompanies anxiety. Child-parent play also lays the foundation for working through challenges together. Sadly, I've noticed that child-parent play can sometimes be seen as an added luxury in a busy household, rather than as something that both young and old really need to nurture family connections. I know we're all busy, and both parents often have to work to make ends meet, so setting aside time to play with your child or to be playful can be a real challenge. As a mum, psychologist, wife, and now author, I wonder where the time is going to come from. I often feel guilty coming home from a day playing with other people's kids that I can't be more energetic for my own. My girlies look at me with their sad expressions, asking for their `Mammy time', which they're perfectly entitled to after a day away from me. So I tell them that they'll get their time after food and pyjamas. Whether it's playing a game, chilling out reading a story or just acting silly, we all get a chance to reconnect after a long day. It's where you can learn because you're in the moment. But when things start to feel odd, or your intuition is telling you that things don't feel quite right, this is when Ron advises that we need to get off the metaphorical dancefloor and step up onto the balcony to maintain perspective and reconnect with the bigger picture. The balcony is a space where you can identify what you don't understand at that moment in time. It's a space of observation and reflection, of asking: What do I need to understand more of? What's really going on here? What more information do I need to seek? What am I noticing about myself? The balcony is the place where you choose what action is needed next before going back to the dancefloor to learn. The balcony provides an opportunity for self-leadership, to intentionally slow down, reflect and decide your next action.

To do nothing is an action too, with inevitable consequences, and so that is not a way to escape pain and suffering either. With Krishna's help, Arjuna follows the path of dharma, of the science of religious duty, and so reconciles what is on the human and material level, irreconcilable. In my own youth, it seemed impossible to be accepted by my students and by my family. But by persevering on the yogic path, I attained a level at which I am not only accepted but even now honoured by my students and my family. This would have been impossible without the evolution that yoga provided. So just because the Gita does not add up or make sense now, life experience tells me that at some stage you will find relevance whether it's an indirect experience or not. Disciple: Not to overly digress from the subject of the mind, can I ask some questions regarding the Bhagavad Gita itself, seeing as we are on this subject? I have read the Gita in the past and struggle with some of the overly religious content (although I appreciate it not referring to god itself but being more of a metaphor). The Gita can itself be sometimes contradictory and confusing, correct? It is the same for me and many other people I know. Will it hear sounds or become sensitive to signals that make your overactive inner smoke detector go off too quickly? Won't that be so comforting? In any case, I know your subconscious has probably already figured out the best way to take care of you. Isn't that so nice to know? You have found something healing here today that will help you. I wonder what that has been here, today, for you and your brain. You have already planted so much in terms of healing calm and comfort. I wonder what day or time it will be when you truly notice that this healing has bloomed. Now it's time to build a bridge so you can take everything you've gained from this practice into your waking, everyday life. Whenever you need to be reminded of anything and everything you have discovered here, you'll have a way to do so.

Overcoming the habit of clenching your teeth is a good first step to reducing your likelihood of a bruxism attack. In this exercise, the in- and outbreath and the rise and fall of your abdomen are linked with letting go tension in your jaw. Practise it every day before you go to bed. You'll need a paperback article. Lie comfortably on your back on the floor on a large towel or a yoga mat if you have one. Place the article on your chest, then gently rest your hands, palms down by your sides on the floor. Close your eyes and become conscious of how you're holding your jaw - is it tight? Are your teeth clenched? Is your tongue rigid or loose inside your mouth? Try to release any tension in your mouth and jaw - you may notice a tingling sensation in your cheeks and temples as you let go. In short, I journal and reflect because it's useful. My Money Rules One of my friends told me he hates his job. I asked him why he didn't take any action. I need the money, he said. I automatically knew that he assumed that the only option for him is to quit. The reason is that we become too dependent on something when we give it too much importance. There's a simple solution to devalue the value of money. I live by these five rules: That's what I've done for the past three years.

CHOP FIREWOOD Wear jeans with boots or shoes for this job, not shorts and sandals. For big logs, invest in a decent splitting maul (a long-handled, heavier version of a traditional axe) weighing no less than 8 pounds. This will chop logs along the wood grain without requiring too much strenuous effort on your part. Use a broad-based log as a chopping block. Place the first log to split on top of it. For rapid results hook a length of chain round the circumference of your log, connected to a bungee cord. This can be adjusted to fit different sizes of log. This holds the log in shape while you work and keeps the pieces together when you move them to your wood stack. Touch the blade of your maul to the top of the log, around halfway between the edge and the center and where there is a crack in the grain. You don't know the conditions your mind needs to create imagery. Use each of your thinking talents to realize the value of what you are imagining. Use your mind pattern to open your attention, which facilitates imagination and creative thought. Identifying all the tasks and which talents are needed to make this happen. You burn out because tasks are misaligned with your innate talents. One of the following is unclear: process, timeline, resources, best practices, or skills needed. HOW DO YOU ACCOMPLISH THIS? Match your thinking talents to tasks, and seek thinking partnerships for your blind spots. Ask for support from someone who is strong in procedural thinking to help create a unified plan of action. Thinking is focused only on problems, challenges, or interferences.

Everyone must sit down. There can be no one towering over anyone else. We all want to talk, not intimidate. A colleague will sometimes sit on the tiny coffee table or on the floor. You cannot be perceived as controlling, arrogant or undermining if you are physically beneath people. A curious dissonance can occur when communicating with people in distress. They may perceive a completely different emphasis in what you are telling them based on what they expect to hear. When everyone is seated I introduce myself and any other members of the team and invite the relatives to introduce themselves. Then I ask what happened. Although I already know the story from the ambulance team and the emergency department, it is important to let people tell it themselves. How did this start? I have a theory. This one-way demonization has been around for decades. My guess is it really took off after the Vietnam War. Where such violent actions propagated by America weren't perceived as simply wrong-headed, but evil. You weren't just someone who wanted to fight communism--you were also a baby killer. I don't believe this kind of thinking really existed regarding the Korean War, or the two big wars before it. Or the Civil or Revolutionary wars. Or the War of the Roses, for that matter. But if you went to Vietnam, something was clearly wrong with you.
