Certain strengths are most closely linked to happiness. They include gratitude, hope, vitality, curiosity, and love. These strengths are so important that they’re worth cultivating and help you weather the ups and downs of life and also build resilience for times of greater difficulty.

 Specifically in a down economy it’s important to stay with the grateful piece. Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what you have—from a roof over your head to good health to people who care about you. When you acknowledge the goodness in your life, you begin to recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside yourself. In this way, gratitude helps you connect to something larger than your individual experience — whether to other people, nature, or a higher power.

 Do you know that people who are grateful cannot be depressed! Here are a few things to do to harness gratefulness and to stay centered , another necessary ingredient for being happy:

● Set aside a few minutes every day and think about five large or small things you’re

grateful for. Write them down if you like. Be specific and remember what each thing

means to you. Review them before going to sleep and on awakening.

● Take “grateful walks” in nature, noticing all the wonders. Create a grateful mantra

for yourself to repeat as you walk-breathe. ie: inhale love 4 steps, exhale self doubt

4 steps. Inhale confidence, exhale fear.  

Achieving maximum physical, emotional and spiritual health through relaxation breathing, movement, visualization/positive imagery and meditation.
A Fitness and Relaxation Program greatly impacts achievement of one’s personal and professional objectives. This program is available on mp3.   More Information 

● Throughout the day take short breaks, conduct internal traffic control: check in how

are you doing emotionally-physically and stretch and or do relaxation breathing.  Exercise.

● Create positive visualizations for SMART goals: specific, measurable, attainable,

realistic, timely.

● Learn EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to help combat negativity, gain

confidence and attain goals.

Do you like to “vent” your negative emotions?

Many people think that expressing anger is healthy-minded and relieves their feelings. Not often so. Studies show that expressing anger only aggravates it.  I’’ve found this to be true, for myself and for clients. Often anger (a natural emotion) can be ended by silence.  Many, when they “get going” can escalate rapidly  into a fury. It’s better to behave calmly and  communicate effectively when time passes.

A large section of  the “Anger Management” curriculum is MBSR: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, which includes relaxation breathing, guided meditation and progressive muscle relaxation.  Discussing anger challenges with a professional and keeping a log of incidents and your reactions reveals patterns and triggers that can be reversed.  EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) helps too!

Anger is a healthy emotion when expressed appropriately. Someone recovering from an addiction finding anger and resentment difficult to deal with may find that their need for the addictive substance increases with their heightened emotions, as anger can make a person’s negative internal state intolerable and it feels horrible. The addict has one solution only- the substance.

Therefore, Anger Management is an essential component in overcoming addiction. The probability of a relapse significantly increases when emotions of anger and resentment are not dealt with properly and unresolved anger often leads to further use of drugs or alcohol as a way to cope. Addictive substances may exacerbate a person’s anger, and often this becomes a vicious destructive cycle. One key to being substance free is managing anger in appropriate ways. Effective treatment for someone being treated for substance abuse includes anger management. This is often the only way to break free of a destructive cycle of anger and substance abuse.

People who are addicted to substances typically demonstrate their anger in one of the following ways:
• They are overly aggressive, and use physical methods such as hitting, punching or kicking to get out their anger.
• They vent or express dislike with little provocation.
• They avoid the source of their anger.
• They seek revenge.
• They become so cut off from their anger that it renders them unable to cope or to release their anger. This is often because people are taught that it’s unacceptable to express anger, so they may never learn how to handle it.

Here are tips to help better manage anger during addiction recovery – or anytime – therefore lessening the chances of substance abuse relapse:
• Walk away from a potentially volatile situation and take time to calm down and assess the situation.
• Learn relaxation techniques through such activities as yoga and in Anger Management sessions.
• Learn how to communicate anger in a productive way.
• Refrain from thinking in black and white terms and learn to realize when anger is irrational.
• Make good life choices and get away from toxic environments (at home or at work) that create feelings of anger.

Anger creates physiological changes and fuels a chemical release in the body that drugs and alcohol can mask. When people are able to recognize this, they can wait until they feel calmer to think more clearly and make good decisions instead of responding immediately with anger. Overall, people are receptive to anger management groups and individual sessions. It’s a good idea to wait to be clean from substances to determine what behavior is from substance abuse versus an underlying chemical imbalance or perhaps simply a lack of learned coping skills. And it’s never to late to begin!

Viewing a dance performance can transport you because it is

  • multisensual; often music is involved and sometimes props-
  • erotic
  • therapeutic in that it is out of your head- into feelings and creative spaces-

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…

Free Danc...

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!
