Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, January 08

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2021, January 08 Well… It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done my blog.  Christmas has come and gone, and we are into 2021… another year – another trip around the sun for this little ball we all live on… My “holiday” season was really quiet.  We (my wife and I) stayed home… didn’t get out much… COVID was certainly a big reason for hunkering...

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, December 18 The Winter solstice approaches, and another week has slipped by…  amazing how fast a week can go by… Last week my challenge was to: Decorate your “life tree” … even just a little.

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, December 11

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, December 11 My Challenge for the last week was: Be aware. Participate in your experience.  Check for intention and purpose. Be kind. Be as kind as you can possibly be. Perform one random act of kindness… non-monetarily. Do something for someone else, give someone a genuine compliment, or some other ACT. I’ve had a tough time the past 7 days… Seems that...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 27 7 more days have raced by for me… the older I get, the faster they go… most of the time… Last week I challenged you to: Make time for someone.  Make some time to listen to someone share about their day or their current experience.  Practice acceptance and understanding.

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 20

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, November 20 7 more days fly by… like the saying goes – “Time waits for no-one.” Last week my challenges for you were to: Tell yourself you are special, unique and loveable.

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, November 06 Hi Blog.  It’s been a couple of weeks since I last wrote here… Life has been hectic, I haven’t been feeling very well and time has simply run through my fingers.  That’s the way it has been… I’m still not feeling very well – I am still having “body issues” and those are really starting to wear on my mental health… as are the...

I was able to recognize and acknowledge...
