Stress-Relieving Meditation

If after this election, you have bouts of panic or freak-out moments, this meditation is for you. If you feel stressed, on the verge of mental break, this meditation is for you. Even if your anxiety has nothing to do with the election, this meditation is for you. This will just take a few minutes and, trust me, it’s worth it. Deep breath.

You DO Have Time to Meditate

When it comes to anything health-wise, people (including myself) find many excuses to avoid doing said activity. It could be a physical workout or, what I’m focusing on today, a mental workout. Yes, I’m talking about meditation: slowing down your life for a couple of minutes to find center and balance (though I’m sure that’s not the exact definition). Meditation has astounding effects on one’s day-to-day life; it can cheer you up, help you find perspective, give you new revelations, fine-tune your focus and so forth. Wow, sounds like great benefits, why isn’t everyone doing it? Well, one big reason is that people don’t think they have time to meditate.

Not enough time to meditate?! Claiming that for a full-hour workout, but for a meditation that can be as short as two minutes long… try searching for another excuse. But, hey, I do it too. It’s funny, the thing that can help us most in life (exercising, meditating), we try to avoid with any excuse possible: it’s too cold out, it’s too hot out, that cloud looks ominous, I’m too tired, I don’t have time, yadda yadda yadda. Nobody is innocent to this. We all do it, though perhaps on different levels of severity.

Our Santa Barbara Trip in Pictures

We recently had a getaway to Santa Barbara. It was not just a trip, but a real vacation. It was just Saturday and Sunday, but boy did it help us relax, refresh, and recharge! It was a beautiful weekend filled with food, beach, lots of walking, and plenty of exploring. We highly recommend it and can’t wait to go back!

We did lots of eating...

We moved...and that was a big project!

How to Harness Happiness

Please enjoy a guest post from Per Wickstrom.

Happiness is one of those elusive and mysterious things that all of us seek out but none of us really know how to achieve.  In fact, we often find it without really knowing how we got there.  It always just seems to happen by chance or it doesn’t happen at all.  Isn’t there some kind of doctrine on how to achieve happiness? Certainly tools for attaining happiness have been put into writing by ancient religions and creeds for centuries, but there’s never been a universal method that’s been agreed upon by everyone.

I’m not here to try to convince anyone that any doctrine works above all else when it comes to attaining happiness.  I’m not writing this to try and push any one theory on happiness or say that only one way works.
