Good morning everyone. It’s rainy as can be here in Chicago. Several friends have sent messages saying how crummy the rain and cold feels since well, it’s MAY and we feel in our little Chicago hearts that it should be warm. Like since it’s MAY! Remember the April showers, that were supposed to give us MAY flowers? I get through it with a blend of forward looking positivity and partly imagining that I’m actually on a romantic Scottish island with wooly black sheep bleating in the distance!
So, I just want to thank all of you who have been visiting the site lately. The last few days have been amazing. More people that ever have been stopping by to see what we’re up to. So thank you all. Feel free to let us know what else you’d like to see here. What do you want to know about? And of course, we hope you’ll sign up for some of our classes. We offer courses and workshops on practical applied mindfulness for work, creativity and every day life. We want you to be able to make every day wonderful.
Here’s a simple mindfulness tip for work for you for today. I found this in Sharon Salzberg’s teachings.
Any time you start to feel a little overwhelmed, it’s helpful to remember that you can put the brakes on that very simply. Just pause what you’re doing whether you’re talking with someone, sending emails, in a meeting, just pause and take three deep centering breaths as slowly as you can. This simple practice let’s you reboot yourself and move on feeling less stressed.
Make a wonderful day loves.
Thanks for visiting.
