Be Good to Y-O-U


No matter what’s on your to-do list, the most important thing you can accomplish in any day is being good to yourself.

We’re not talking spa days and fancy dinners, but simple things we can all do to make a positive difference in our every day.


Here are 5 daily musts to be good to yourself:


1. Make Happiness a Priority

Seek out laughter, activities, and people who make you feel good. Limit bad news and drama.

When it comes to being informed, get the facts and get on with your day. Nothing good comes from obsessing over anything negative.

2. Don’t Talk Smack About Yourself

Use your words to praise and build yourself up, not break yourself down. This goes for what you think too. Speak and think good things about yourself.

You really are wonderful!

3. Be Your Own Best Friend

When our best friends are down or feel they’ve made a mistake we don’t plant seeds of worry in their minds, scare or judge them. We assure them everything is going to be OK and remind them they’re amazing and will bounce back in time.

We celebrate their triumphs when things are good, support them when they’re feeling down and unconditionally love them either way.

It’s easy to do it for them, so why wouldn’t we do it for ourselves?

4. Make “Me Time”

It’s impossible to be “on” all of the time and we all need timeouts to refuel.

Whether it’s a mini-meditation sitting in your car before walking in the door after work, an afternoon sipping lattes at a café, or a solo walk around the block — make time for you.

Put it in your daily calendar as non-negotiable.

5. Be Kind and Patient With Y-O-U

Most of us are terribly hard on ourselves. We criticize, judge, berate and place unreasonable expectations on our day-to-day lives. We expect to conquer the world in a day and get down on ourselves when we don’t.

Take it easy on yourself. Laugh.

Life’s a marathon, not a sprint, and great things do take time.

Relax and enjoy the ride!

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.

Here’s how:
