Social Support – You Don’t Have to Go through it Alone

You had a rough day at work. Your family member is ill. Your audition for American Idol didn’t go so well. A long-term relationship ended sadly. Life is constantly throwing us challenges. We take all kinds of measures to prevent certain challenges from getting the best of us, like purchasing health insurance, installing locks on our doors, and planning out household budgets.

A Refreshing Read…it will make you smile :-)

It is so easy to complain. We are all guilty of it. It can feel good, and then after all of the moaning and groaning about how tough life is (because it can be sometimes), it can feel exhausting as well. That’s how it feels for me at least. I will tell you what truly feels nice... To find something positive. One aspect of life that people can find many complaints about is their workplace. Unfortunately enough, our career choices take up a bit of our time in life…so I hope we can find some happiness in that.

You are not doing anyone any good by being less than you truly are...

So, part of living a conscious life is being aware of how everyday occurrences can mean so much and speak so true to the depths of who we are as individuals. Sunday night I was sitting on my couch, yes my couch, not on a zafu meditation cushion or in any fancy yoga position to gain enlightenment, and I was watching the television show Brother's & Sister's.

Refugio Del Guerrero

This past weekend we took an incredible trip. One of my husband’s best friends started an intentional community called “Refugio Del Guerrero”, (Warrior’s Refuge). They have a very large plot of land in the Andes outside of Santiago. You have to ride the Metro to the last stop, take a bus for an hour, then it’s about an hour on foot through rough terrain in the mountains (where we encountered a herd of wild goats). Then you arrive to a slice of paradise.

It was surreal to be walking so long through the wilderness and walk into a community. They have a wonderful garden that they eat from.

Seasonal Depression

Year after year, when winter rolls around, some people may repeatedly experience a significant change in the way they feel and behave. Starting in late fall and subsiding in early spring, they may feel especially sad, irritable, or sluggish, want to sleep more, and crave sweets and starchy foods. They might notice a lack of interest or pleasure in usual hobbies or friends, or a decreased interest in sex. These are all possible signs of Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD), a type of depression experienced by an estimated 10% of people living in northern countries.

What have you seen on your walks lately?

Winter seems like hardly the time to be outdoors observing nature, but for all of you who do venture out in the cold, you know that a lot happens in the wintertime. Some of you may be forced outside daily by your canine master or may have a disciplined jogging routine (I envy you!). Regardless of the reason, don’t forget to visit with the outdoors in the wintertime.
