Well I know it's coming on spring

You can take all the tea in China

It's how surfers take championships and artists go from homeless to the Grammys. I'm not much of an athlete, but there's one sport in which I feel it's all right to brag about my abilities for a minute: monkey bars, circa age ten. When I was a shrimpy, red-headed kid …

Keep singing our song

Market-share mentality solves problems by asking our minds to think practically, analytically, and procedurally. We break down challenges into small pieces and arrange them neatly in sequential order, hoping the solution will make itself apparent. A question is asked and our brains shoot back an answer: Ready, aim, fire. We …

See the water flowing way beneath the bridge

I dug deep, I hustled and I invested in the right people around me to keep me focused and on track. I formed the LBDGroup, a network for commercially smart women who collaborate and support each other (which I sold in March 2019). Since then, I've built a global speaking …

Straight to your heart like a cannonball

Of course not! When you are in good spirits, you naturally look sunny and positive, and this mental state will also affect others, such as your business partner, and will pave the way for fruitful conversation.

Waiting for the sun to shine

So time goes on. Years pass. Another mother, another daughter. She has Asperger syndrome. Similarly, we can't automatically conclude that the brain must produce consciousness simply because the brain and consciousness are related. As we will explore in this article, a branch of physics first conceived in the early 20th …

We move along

This dilemma is an exercise in lateral thinking. It's the kind of puzzle in which the most elegant solution is revealed only when you attack it sideways. New ideas emerge when you question the assumptions upon which a problem is based (in this case: it's that you can only help …

When I hear that robin sing

Yep, instead of reporting on each other, our country's patriots clogged his tattle-tale tip line with garbage. That is not just a plus--it's a patriotic plus. Instead of indulging in the very worst behavior in a time that screams for unity--narcing on each other--Americans chose instead to ridicule and annoy …

And you know sometimes it gets so painful

But before we talk about the mechanics of anxiety, I need to make the following point loud and clear: Talking to your child about anxiety will not make them more anxious. The reason I have a bee in my bonnet about this is that I've heard of several occasions in …

Do do loo do do, do do loo do do

Many contemporary skeptics in science are also materialists. If materialism is based on a leap of faith, then shouldn't a true skeptic be skeptical of materialism? Shouldn't skeptics be skeptical of their own materialist belief system? Not only are there logical and philosophical questions about whether a material brain produces …

I take a walk out in my backyard and go

Scrolling through her posts, my mind was momentarily broken, trying to wrap itself around the fact that there was a woman in the world who looked nothing like the ideal, but who was living a full and joyous life. No shame, no apologies, only confident posts about her favorite articles …

Stand before the mirror

During dreaming sleep our limbs are immobilized in order that we can't act out our dreams. In physiological terms, sleep is a period of distinct cycles and stages. An adult with healthy sleep each night goes through four or five sleep cycles (see pp. Every one of those sleep cycles …

Waiting for the sun to shine

I went over, in my head, the hundreds of yoga articles that I own and have read over the years and was left just scratching my head. I recommended Light on Life, by the late, great B. S Iyengar, but that was not enough to cross the T's and dot …

As you brush your shoes

Most Americans under sixty-five probably would have been fine. In a country of 340 million, 1. Nearly 3 million die each year anyway, from all sorts of stuff. Well, we did. My little shoebox of special tokens still contains notes and cards from extraordinary women along that journey. They spoke …

Don't make it long

Then one day I was approached by an old work colleague and offered a position at an investment bank in Canary Wharf with a big pay cheque and flexible hours. And it was part-time. The dream job, right? Well, actually, wrong. Nate and Tommy routinely said good-bye to me at …

Remember to sing it the old way

Do you keep jumping from one thing to another without ever getting the results you seek? Many people struggle to focus on one thing until it's one hundred percent completed. This is true both in the short term with their daily tasks but also, and most especially, in the longer …

Sing me the song for the new day

I have always loved decorating and furnishing my homes with a mixture of new things, family pieces that have been handed on to us, objects I've hunted down at antiques fairs and auction houses, and prizes I've lugged back from holidays abroad. I work as a food writer and often …

To see me through the daytime

So, I did what I always do when life throws me a curveball. I research. Facts are comforting. They make sense out of chaos. Before you begin reading, I warn you that you might need to suspend everything you thought you knew about reality. Remind yourself that while humanity has …

It's not nearly time to quit

Otherwise, you are giving from an empty cup. As you get involved in repairing your own issues of trust and identity in the context of helpful relationships, you will be surprised at how much more you have to give to your children. You will become less reactive to kid follies …

Let us help you to forget

As little girls do, Kristin then reached out for Dad, to repair what Mom couldn't. But he wasn't there either. Thus began the eternal search for the Knight in Shining Armor. The truth was, underneath the armored helmet was the face of a structure-building, assertive mother. To me, they look …

Let us help you unlock it

This amazing girl would thrive in the right environment and with the right supports. But Noreen recently discovered that this college (College A) wouldn't be the best fit for her daughter. She found College B, which seemed ideal. Too late (she believed). After a few moments she found herself standing …

Let us see you smile again

You empathically dive into mom without even realizing it and give yourself over to comforting and protecting her. And you find yourself doing the same in your close relationships. If you're the empathic type, realize you have a gift from God, one of his own deep character traits: As a …

Let us unlock all the chains

What will I gain from this? Someone leaving, someone dying, getting sick. What will I gain from this? What do you wish you never did anymore? Then there's the level of your filter system. Perhaps at that level you believe that relationships never work, that people will always leave you …

Light up your golden smile

In abused children, for example, we often see a grandiose sense of responsibility for mom's maltreatment of them; He thinks, If I hadn't been bad, she wouldn't have hurt me. Taking on mom's badness causes all sorts of character and emotional problems in later years for children, such as isolation …

You've only started

You may schedule a meditation class before your work day. Or you may be efficient during your work day because you have fun dinner plans. Either way, you're more likely to create your six- figure business from ease, simply because you decided to believe it was possible. Words have the …

Everytime you hear that whistle blow

Which meant they would not improve--and often had not improved--with nonpsychiatric medical treatment. Delivering this news to patients and family members is a delicate task.

Everytime your number comes around

We should not allow our fear to let us lose sight of our big-picture desires. We desperately want less risk and more safety. Countries like Norway and Sweden offer us another choice. To avail ourselves of that choice, we must first be honest. Here's why: conversations, scents, coughing, movement, and …

Get some heavy rest

So we can aim our restrictions and interventions to prevent as best we can the most common dangers, the most common bad events. And we do a good job of that. But like any curve, it trails off for a ways in either direction. In other words, there are a …

Let us free you from the pain

I had been yearning for hot yoga, so I limited myself to the entry-level classes, even though I was becoming quite bored. Sitting in my Power Flow class on Tuesday, I had a momentary panic, as these classes are intense and demanding. But I decided to stay and follow the …
