    How to deny my sweet tooth

    The old timey remedy to deal with cravings for sweets is to use bitters which is a concoction of bitter tasting herbs. Swedish Bitters is probably the most famous product - its been around forever and you can buy it on Amazon or at the health food store. I have a sweet tooth, too, but I also...

    Sleeping and Chronotypes

    I found this video on the benefits of getting up early - like 5am early. The early bird gets the worm, right? Well I don’t have any kind of sleep schedule to brag about, but this video is definitely motivating me to consider becoming a consistent early riser. I guess its not surprising to...

    Perfection Stopping Progress

    Writing is a science as well as an art. Just hire somebody to review your work and give you feedback. If you're second guessing yourself, its probably because it needs a little work - probably not much - but you've just been so close to it that you can't see it. That's all. You may find out...

    Byron Katie Is One Of Our Wise Elders

    Sooner or later, all spiritual seekers will come across Byron Katie and her process of healing and spiritual transformation which she calls "The Work." It's a powerful tool, especially for those of us who journal or use the written word to process through events or challenges in our lives. The...

    Individual vs. The Family

    I can appreciate that challenge. I'm American, so we were encouraged to move out as soon as we wanted to really, and it was pretty clear that my mom was ready for it, too. haha! I was 21 when I moved out. But even after moving out, I felt the pressure of family obligations. I did get tired...

    3-weeks Cigarette Free

    Congrats! That's excellent. Have you managed to stay away still? I was a huge, compulsive smoker when I quit. I had started at 13 and quit at 21 years old. A 7 year curse! I was so proud of myself for that accomplishment. I was high on it for actually quite a few years. My entire family had...

    Rich Dad Poor Dad was a game changer

    Wow! I am so impressed that you had that experience! How rare in the world. It definitely should be mandatory. I honestly think it would have a profound effect. At a certain age, we're busting to get out of school and into the adult world. That would be a good time to take a class like this, and...

    Law of Attraction Journal

    I've used a writing process that I call a Law of Attraction Journal with some pretty good success and I wanted to share it with you. The concept is exactly the opposite of the typical journal where you write about the events of the day gone by. Instead, this is about creating the future. So...

    Dealing with Adult Acne

    I have three pieces of advice. I always suffered from acne, and still have far from perfect skin. My skin was incredibly oily. I could wash my face in the morning, and two hours later it would be shiny with oil. Instead of going to a doctor, I finally went to an esthetician. She explained to me...

    Rich Dad Poor Dad was a game changer

    It's been years since I read that book, and it's still being promoted with the entrepreneur crowd. The difference in attitude and approaches between the two dads has become iconic. I read this book right around the same time that I was learning a bit more about American history - the version...

    Being Conscious of the Present

    I've spent quite a bit of time with Eckhart's books and videos. He's in my top five of all time favorite teachers. Simply watching his videos brings you to the present moment. He is speaking from a place of deep peace and so when we are listening to him, we get drawn into that peace with him...

    Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) ~ because life is energy

    Do you know anything about EFT - emotional freedom technique? This is a system of tapping on certain energy centers on the body as a way of dissipating strong emotions. I won't be the best at explaining why or how it works, but I will say that it definitely works. Its similar to acupuncture...

    Too much social media

    Just last night I was talking to a friend about my internet addiction. I was never a TV watcher. In fact, I tossed that decades ago and never looked back. But the internet is orders of magnitude more addictive. And if I remember this right, Facebook developers admit that they deliberately built...
