We all need strategies and habits to help us navigate through the potholes in our paths. If positivity is not natural for you, join us for some ideas and tips to strengthen your positive responses.

Peace in the Midst of Turmoil
Sometimes life is just stressful but you don't have to let that stress control your mindset. Follow me here to learn some calming and reframing techniques.
The ART of Reframing Thoughts
For some of us, thinking positively does not come naturally. Those of us who have a steady stream, or even a little trickle of negativity, worry, or doubt, may have to work a little harder to see the bright side. Follow me here for a discussion about how to create new, positive habits. Storms will come, but if we are prepared, we can weather those storms and perhaps come out stronger!
Pay it Forward
The easiest way to forget our own worries or struggles is to help others. In fact, when we get out of our own problems we often see that there are others who are struggling more than we are. Follow me here to investigate some of the ways you can pay it forward and temporarily, at least, leave your troubles behind.
