Science of Happiness

My 6th graders watched this short and sweet video at school this week and it’s so good, I wanted to share it with you. The timing is perfect as we head into the “Holiday of Gratitude.” If you decide to do the experiment yourself, please do share with us how it went, how you felt, etc.

It made me remember Tony Robbins’ emotional flood technique which I’ve shared with you before. Just in case it’s been awhile since you’ve done this powerful exercise, thought I’d include it here as well.

Enjoy and Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and your loved ones!


New Oprah/Chopra Meditation Challenge Starts Today!

It’s been months and months and months since I’ve written. It’s not for lack of material or interest, that’s for sure. I think of and feel like I could write you daily; I should!  Nevertheless, I haven’t.

However, since there is a new Oprah/Chopra meditation challenge kicking off today, I thought I’d at least send you the link for that These are a great way to start a meditation practice for the beginner, an easy win for meditating with kids, and a nice change up for those with an established practice. Sometimes I’m just too tired to meditate and I’ll just pull up an old guided meditation of theirs (from a CD I purchased) and just sit. It refreshes me every time!

Remember, these free meditations are only up for 5 days before they are taken down so commit to doing it for the next 21 days and see how it goes. I’m pretty sure you’ll be enjoy them as much as I do (and my kids, too!!).
