Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, Feb 19

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, Feb 19 WOW – What a frustrating week…. I didn’t have the opportunity to get my post out last Friday as there were issues with my website that were, for all intents and purposes, out of my control. I “put my shoulder into it” and worked my way through the issues with very little – read that as zero – help from the SHAW Helpdesk.  Nevertheless, I...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, February 05

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, February 05 I didn’t do a post last week.  I’ve not been feeling great physically (certainly not COVID related) and didn’t have the extra energy to do this.  Ya, I know – energy to sit at a computer and type… well… it’s the thinking and digging that there wasn’t energy for… Anywho… I feel a commitment to this and it needs to be done –...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, January 22

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, January 22 Last week I challenged you to: Be authentic. Be you! Drink 4 big glasses of water every day. Journal a little. Take some time each day to get in touch with yourself… (see #1). How did you do you?  I did OK. I was intentional about being authentic.  I worked at doing my best to be me… I can get caught up in the whirlwinds of “stuff” around...

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...
