PODCAST — Zentangle

Zentangle is an easy method of creating fun, simple to execute images from repetitive patterns.  It can increase your focus and sense of personal well being. Though it’s as simple as doodling, it allows you to create a lovely piece of artwork, and gives you the opportunity to deliberately create mood, and change your focus and your state of mind.  

For that reason, artist, author, coach, and devoted “Zentangler,” Jeanne Paglio says, “It is less expensive and more fun than therapy!”  

Today Jeanne gives us the details on the benefits of Zentangle, and how it can help you and your family achieve more health and happiness.

What will You Decide?

We’ve talked a lot about how powerful words are. They can set in motion a “cause and effect” cycle that can result in rage and resentment, or self control and peace of mind.

Words cause us to think certain thoughts. When you say or hear mean, hurtful words your thoughts often turn negative. Thoughts cause us to have certain feelings. Feelings cause us to make certain decisions. Decisions cause us to take certain actions. Actions repeated over and over cause us to form habits. (Have you developed a habit of rage or temper tantrums?) Habits cause our Character to be formed.

Life is a series of decisions. Decisions you make cause certain effects or outcomes. You can’t control what other people do, but when you decide to control your own words, thoughts, and feelings, you’ll become the person you want to be.

Beat the (Holiday) Blues

While sorting through old books in hopes of de-cluttering, (It pains me to part with books!) I rediscovered Dale Carnegie’s How To Stop Worrying and Start Living. Although this was first published more than sixty years ago, it’s packed with timely advice.

Worry and anxiety can lead to depression, often described as anger turned inward. Especially at holiday time, the thought that others are merrily celebrating while you are worried about bills, family, poor health, etc. is enough to give you the blues. How do you stop worrying?

You don’t even have to try to stop worrying, Dale Carnegie says. Keep worrying if you like – and think about how you can serve others. The key is to focus every day on “how you can please someone.” When you do, anxious thoughts subside. Healthy optimism and a sense of joy and gratitude take hold.

Who will you serve today? How? What will put a smile on their face?  Think about it. Then do it. The result: health and happiness for YOU.

PODCAST — Work Out Your Anger with Exercise

We’ve all heard exercise benefits our physical health. Did you know it can also help you deal with anger?

Anger and stress go hand in hand, and research has shown that exercise has a positive effect in reducing stress and depression.

A recent study, presented at the 57th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine, suggests that there may be a link between exercise and reduction of anger in adults.

Exercise increases endorphins, serotonin and norepinephrine (anti-stress hormones) in the brain resulting in improved mood and overall good feeling.

Kathy Jordan, weight loss and fitness coach and author, gives us the details on the benefits of exercise, new research, and tips on overcoming anger and related negative emotions by choosing to be more active.

PODCAST — Three Tips to Avoid an Argument

Do you ever wonder how a simple conversation turns to bickering and arguing?

Words are powerful. How you choose to word a request or a statement can make all the difference in the response you get. Will the person cooperate enthusiastically? Will you descend into bickering and arguing?

Susan Rooks, The Grammar Goddess, gives us three simple tips that will help you be a better communicator. Susan says if you are dealing with hurt feelings, misunderstandings, or negativity, “It might be because people aren’t communicating effectively. Most of us don’t know how to use language to gain a specific result, and we definitely don’t know how to listen.

We don’t always understand someone else’s body language or how to decode mixed messages. We’re wrapped up in our own little worlds; we’re often confused and angered by others’ unexpected responses to what we’ve said. We blame them; they blame us. Frustration and tension can grow.”

“Anger and Danger are one letter apart.”

This quote by Harvey Mackay has stuck with me. It’s a “cause and effect” world we live in, and anger is the cause for some dangerous effects.

What happens when you get angry? Adrenaline rushes through your body and makes your heart race. Your mouth may get dry and your palms sweaty. Your stomach may twist in knots, causing an upset in your digestion. Your muscles are energized. This is called a “Fight or Flight” response.

Obviously, there can be immediate danger when you fly into a rage. You can quickly get out of control. People can be seriously harmed physically and emotionally. Property may be damaged or destroyed.

But what about the long term danger? What do you think would happen if you felt this way all the time?

In the long run, when you don’t cope with rage and its cause(s), it can harden into resentment and bitterness.

Imagine that “Fight or Flight” response happening all the time. A bodily function that’s supposed to happen, and then resolve quickly, just keeps going. Your body will suffer from that stress and strain, and you can have long term or chronic problems such as ulcers, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, heart attack, stroke, or immune system breakdown.

Of course, you can also experience emotional upset, frustration, anxiety and depression when you allow anger and resentments to fester. You may become bitter or withdrawn. You may be critical of others, or develop sloppy habits. You may turn to emotional eating, alcohol or drugs to stuff down or suppress negative feelings.

All good reasons to remember “Anger and Danger are one letter apart.”

Thanksgiving Every Day

Gratitude changes your mindset. Have you noticed it’s impossible to be grateful and angry at the same time?

We’ve all heard “your thoughts create your future.” Everything begins with a thought. Focusing on the positive can help you brush aside the negative. Do that enough and you can change your life.

Try making a simple gratitude list each day. Just jot down five things you’re thankful for. If you are inspired, you can list more. The important thing is to start. (Take action!)

Thanksgiving is a great time to begin. Grab a notebook and go. When you look back a year from now, you’ll notice the difference. You can change from a “glass half empty” person to a “glass half full.” Or maybe even a “glass over-flowing!”

Positive People Day

October 29th is Positive People Day, proclaimed by Boston Mayor, Thomas Menino in 1998. This “holiday from rudeness” began when Nancy Purbeck encountered a particularly nasty Boston cab driver. Partnering with Watts Bickers, co-creator of “Underdog,” Nancy set out to help people make the world a less hostile, violent place.

Nancy advises people to reach out to others with acts of kindness. It can be as simple as giving someone a smile or a hug. Call someone you love, give them a compliment, a “thank you,” or just a kind word.
