Happiness is subjective, perception rules. Yet there are some simple keys to wellness and happiness, which go hand in hand. The thing about happiness is that the premise often flows and changes, depending on people and circumstances in our lives. It’s important through all the changes to be aware of your core values and be in alignment with them.
These simple truths are not always evident and hold the keys to wellness and happiness:

How to Effectively Manage Time & Prioritize
“Are you challenged by time?“
Is your time cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?
With this lesson you can Claim your power in the midst of chaos and movement…carry your stillness with you and you will have enough time to make the important things happen. It may be because you’re doing all the C’s (low priorities on your list), not because you haven’t time, that you don’t get to do the A’s.
Time can be elusive…don’t let it slip through your fingers. Remember, as The Rolling Stones said, Time is on your side.
“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.” - Alan Lakein
“If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear, then nothing will confuse you.” - ShengYen
Managing time effectively overlaps with a few other topics, including prioritizing, goal setting and “life balance”, meditation and the assertiveness trait of saying “no” effectively.

Viewing a dance performance can transport you because it is
I was in audience Tilles Center (CW Post) Long Island for Jose Limon Dance Company performance this past weekend- and I was transported!
Once in a while I found myself blogging (this) in my head and forced stop- to be able to be fully present and “out of my head” with the dance viewing experience.
I’ve always found dance to be therapeutic in the doing and the viewing…
I owned a dance and exercise studio and created an audio program Moving Meditation® Fitness: A Fitness and Relaxation Program knowing that anyone can become more focused, relaxed and happier with the inclusion of dance-movement combined with visualization and guided breath work in their fitness and stress release routines.
All you need to do is simply allow dance and movement to transport you!

The Mayo Clinic Staff reports that researchers are claiming that, in addition to improving your spiritual health, forgiveness may have benefits for your physical health, too. This is definitely something that warrants our attention! It is being said that “letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for compassion, kindness and peace, and that forgiveness can lead to:
Well, this helps explain the statement I’ve heard and read again and again that if you experience a high level of gratitude you cannot be depressed. This makes sense since depression is anger suppressed. Imagine a line with frustration in the middle. It can go either way- one end is depression(extremely suppressed anger) and the other is a high anger level – often in an inappropriate, aggressive way.
What about “unforgiveness” as a health risk, then?
The University of Maryland School of Medicine is researching the connection between anger and ”unforgiveness”. Anger is a component of unforgiveness and anger is a health risk. Then is unforgiveness a health risk as well? Included in the research are studies with aids patients. Knowing more about the nature and course of anger expression in the context of unforgiveness will ultimately help define and clarify this area of research.
Now I’ll share a few important points that can be helpful in letting go of anger- something I’ve learned as an Advanced EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Certified Practitioner in a training I attended and has been reinforced in trainings to facilitate Anger Management.
If you or someone you love gets help with managing anger and/or letting it go as a victim, then stress is automatically addressed and therefore health will improve too!
Balance & Power, Inc. has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades, corporately and in the educational and private sectors, and is now facilitating Workplace Bullying Prevention trainings.
Bullying in the workplace, the schools and at home has reached epidemic proportions – it is our goal to help eliminate these type of situations. Eileen Lichtenstein, CEO, believes inner strength and being centered are keys to optimal productivity and happiness. She is a Certified Anger Management Specialist, accepted by the US courts, a former Biofeedback Practitioner and faculty member at HofstraUniversity. Her office is in Wantgh, NY, the telephone, Video Skype or on your site.

Do you have enough fun and play?
I’m not talking about video games- or sex. When you play tennis, golf, scrabble, bike, walk, ball, surf are you having fun? Are you smiling and laughing along with laser focus or perhaps no thoughts at all?
Give yourself permission to have fun. It’s healthy, and well, yeah, fun!
Access your inner child and see what happens! Being happier is always an asset.
Do you know what frees you? It’s dancing for me. I’ve come to peace with physical modifications for myself in dancing and exercising. Additionally, I’ve placed the concept of “dancing” into an intellectual-emotional realm of possibility: creativity for the soul. I encourage you to take time to pursue your fun passion and create new possibilities.
There is no such thing as having “life balance” or “work-life balance” all the time.
There are, however, individual tolerations if the balance is tipped too far.
Be smart- stay in balance most of the time! This will keep you healthy and less stressed.

This morning I was blessed with the time, energy and location to be walking on the boardwalk in Long beach, Long Island, New York.
