Attitude of Gratitude

I was talking with a friend of mine who is going through a rough time financially.  We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

When I woke up this morning, I thought about my friend and how he could make things better.

A lot of us go about our way, telling folks that everything is fine when it isn’t.  It’s good to be positive with the world around us, but what’s most important is how we feel inside.

What has always helped me is to write down a list of at least 5 things I’m grateful for everyday.  I can feel it in my heart when I express this gratitude and it puts me in a hopeful state of mind.

If we could all live in an attitude of gratitude and lead by example, just think how this would affect not only your own world but everyone around you.

Right now, I am grateful to you for reading my blog.  Namaste!

Increasing Your Quality of Life

What would your life be like if you had more?  What’s your definition of more?  Are you wanting more love and acceptance in your life?  Are you wanting more money, more vacations, more happiness?  If you had these things, what would it look like?  How would you feel?  What makes you think you can’t have these things you are wanting?

Research shows the majority of people are not happy with their lives.  Isn’t that sad?  The only person keeping you from having the life you want is you.  What’s holding you back?  What limiting beliefs do you tell yourself and what behavior do you exhibit over and over again that does not produce the results you want?

First of all, you must feel good about yourself.  Work on your self-esteem and realize you do have personal power.  We’ve all suffered from feelings of inadequacy.  Maybe someone told you bad things about yourself and you believed them.  Forgive others and yourself.  You are the only one who has power over yourself.  We’re on this earth to learn lessons and that’s all it is.  Once you’ve learned the lesson, hopefully, you won’t have to experience it again.  Most of life is how you interpret it.

Feel good about yourself and work on it everyday until it becomes habit.  Comfort yourself in any way you can and you will increase your quality of life.

Can you sleep?

There’s nothing worse than not being able to go to sleep when you get into bed.  Your intention is to get a good night’s sleep, but then you just can’t shut your mind down and relax your body.

There are many things you can do like listening to soothing music, counting sheep, and drinking warm milk or perhaps a warm bath before bed.  All these steps certainly do not hurt.  And they say, if you can’t sleep just get out of bed.  That way, you won’t have negative thoughts about your bed.

Part of the solution is training your mind.  Select a word that helps the body to relax, like the word “peace”.  Think about that word two or three times a day and feel the relaxation that sweeps over your body.  Another trick is meditation, which is good for us in many ways.  The key is to reduce stimuli.  Try some stretching exercises before bed, visualize success, breathe deep, and exercise during the day and not close to bedtime.

Another important factor is to have the right bedding.  You want to create a soothing oasis of calm and relaxation.  It’s important for the body to be cradled in a bed that feels wonderful to the body.  Old bedding can result in discomfort and poor sleep.

Once I improved my bedding, by adding a mattress pad,  a featherbed like they have at upscale hotels, soft Egyptian cotton sheets,  a lightweight down blanket, a lightweight down comforter, and the best down pillows, I started to sleep better and deeper.  Finally, I added a duvet because I wanted color on my bed.  Anything you can do to add comfort to your bed will help.

Here’s wishing you a good night’s sleep.  We are here to serve you and your bedding needs.
