It took Claudio a second to figure a few things out in the water. As we were watching him play, we were able to witness such a tender moment, as he tried to lift his paws up high to walk in the water. He was also very happy to watch the fish jump around him.
Just last month, I submitted an article about seasonal changes that I co-wrote with a wonderful psychologist, Dennis Ramos. As many of you already know, I enjoy writing about wellness and mental heath.
The Friday before Mother’s Day, one of the editors at Thrive Global, Zoe, e-mailed me to let me know that my story had just gone live. What a great way to start the weekend, with a new published article under my belt! I will post a link for you to read it.
I hope all the mothers, including fur babies’ moms, had a wonderful Mothers’ Day last weekend. My guys at home spoiled me with beautiful gifts and a great brunch. Then, I ended up spending the rest of the day relaxing, without feeling guilty about not being productive for a day. For me, in order to stay balanced and happy, it’s important to disconnect and make time for me and the family.
In our society, people have forgotten how to relax and enjoy life. Everyone seems to be on the go all the time. Everywhere you go, you notice people are constantly engaged with scrolling through social media pages on their phones to see what is going on in other peoples’ lives.
Question: can we be happy if our minds are constantly engaged somewhere else? That can become extremely exhausting, stressful, and unhealthy. It may put a strain on us and others. There are plenty of other areas in life that need our attention. Admittedly, for me to feel happy, I need to be present in the moment.
To help you relax, make some time for reading at your favorite book store. I have been reading both Flow and In the Moment magazines. You will enjoy all the mindful articles and activities.
Question: Do you feel more relaxed after reading my blog? Share your thoughts with us.
I hope you have a wonderful week! Don’t forget to schedule “me” time. Catch me on my next update.
P.S. On Mother ‘s Day, my beloved Juve won another scudetto. Who is counting how many we have already won? Not me. However, if some of you insist to know the facts, this is our 7th consecutive scudetto in Serie A.
Hello, friends! The topics for this week are running shoes, frustration, and Claudio!
For the past three weeks, I have made several attempts to shop for the perfect running shoes. I’m not talking about finding the perfect looking shoes, but finding the right pair that will provide me with comfort while running.
Until my next update, namaste.
Hi, everyone! As many of you already know, I like to share my favorite things on my blog: makeup, shoes, clothing, purses, books, etc. You name it!On my blog today, I’m going to share my favorite book I have been reading. It is by New York Times bestselling author Maria Shriver. The book is called I’ve Been Thinking…Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life. It is just about us juggling different roles and wearing different hats each day. It is a great book that will help anyone learn how to stand strong when life throws a curve ball. Maria herself managed, with grace and dignity, to catch a few curve balls in her life.
This book can help anyone who is looking forward to moving on in life. I also love the prayers at the end of each chapter.
Trust me on this one. You are going to love it.
No matter how busy I am, I always try to make time for reading at home or at Barnes & Noble. While I am at Barnes & Noble, I always like to look through Flow magazine. I love all the activities, and this mindful magazine helps me slow down and press the “reset” button in my brain. I love all the illustrations, and how those beautiful, colorful stickers help remind us to take time for ourselves and do nothing once in a while.
The activities in Flow will inspire you to pick up a pen and get busy. We are so surrounded by cell phones and laptops that we often forget the last time we picked up a pen or pencil to draw a picture or send a handwritten note to a friend.
Speaking of mindfulness, our house is a mess because we are remodeling. The worse part about remodeling is all the waiting. It is like someone is trying to teach me how to be patient. You wait for the materials to come in, you wait for the person to take the measurements, you wait for the contractors to install, and it just seems to take forever. I’m looking forward to having the house look like a home again, but I am beginning to appreciate the exercise in patience I am getting.
Catch me on my next “favorite things” update!
