Health and wellness covers so many areas. Many of the areas have to do with how we react to other people, which involves our mental and emotional health.

If you teach and coach people (which really we’re all doing all the time if we have children and grandchildren, or mentees at work), remember what you believe in is what they believe is possible.  Work on balance and deliberate practice.  Think of perspective.  Sometimes we have to change ours.

For those of us who run businesses from the luxury of our own homes, a balanced perspective is very important.

Every new day brings new possibilities and opportunities for something new. Don’t let today go by without taking advantage of one of them. Stretch your limits a little today. It’s a great way to cope with stress.

“Often people ‘nag’ about what they don’t like or don’t want, and yet they fail to tell their mate what they do want.” — 20 Communication Tips for Couples

What does this have to do with business? We find that people complain (team mates, work mates) about what they aren’t doing themselves, and fail to communicate their wants and needs. Before we complain, lets check ourselves first. Secondly, lets communicate clearly what we want and what we need from each other, and talk to the right people to get what we need.

One way to handle stress is to not know all the answers.

 

Learn to love the monotony. It’s the monotony of some of the everyday activities that help us grow. There are everyday activities that all of us would rather not do, but need to be done. Just do them. Whistle while you work

 

Attitude is contagious – positive and negative.

 

We all need to develop our emotional intelligence when it comes to our home business, but this applies in personal life as well. We need to take responsibility for the personal activities that will make our business grow, improve our health, help our finances, help us be more disciplined. Assigning blame to others doesn’t help us.

*** ——-> her fault <——– his fault ———–> their fault <——— not me ***

Always remember that our present situation is not our future. The best is yet to come.

 

If you are having a particularly hard time right now with something or going through something very difficult, always do what’s right, no matter what. You will get through it and you will come out stronger. This applies to home business and personal life. It can be a situation with money, work, health, family. Don’t quit trying. You can make it through even seemingly impossible circumstances.

From my weekly business meeting.

Don’t be upset for the result you didn’t get because you didn’t do the work for it. Pretty simple.

Marrying the Right Person Makes You More Successful

We will never always be motivated. We have to learn to be disciplined. I heard in a spiritual talk many years ago that action breeds motivation and motivation moves us to action. They work with each other. That has proven true over the years in almost every aspect of my life, including my home business.

 

We have two ears and one mouth. When we use them in that proportion, our interactions with people are much better quality. Did you know that CEO’s now are hiring specialists to teach what is becoming a lost art — the art of listening.

 

Action Changes Things. ACT!

 

Warm up to open up.

Most of us have gotten caught up in the emotional roller-coaster that is wanting to work with or help someone who has the talent, the potential or the need, even if that person is unwilling or incapable.

Move on from those who don’t want to do or be where you want them to do or be. And don’t carry their burden.
Let them go through their journey and spend your time and energy looking for like-minded people who you can partner with.

From The Life and Times of Nelson Mandela

Even Nelson Mandela had similar problems that we all face in our business lives. It can even apply to our personal lives. We must keep moving forward.

 

See our Facebook page!

One of the happiest moments is when you feel the courage to let go of what you can’t change. We tend to hang on long after someone has stopped engaging, rather than meet them where they stand. We all need to be willing to “bless and release”. Trying to do things for others that they need to do for themselves is just trying to give them a crutch that doesn’t work. We think we’re helping, but we’re not, because they’re not learning to do it themselves.

This is from my Monday business call. It’s amazing how much these things apply to so many different aspects of our lives, not just our businesses where we are mentoring and coaching people, and helping them to find ways to a better lifestyle.

 

Success is when opportunity meets preparedness.

 

Keep the momentum. Prepare for activity. Time slips away so fast. Can you believe it’s already the first week of May!

 

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” — Buddha

 

Let’s start where we stand. Let’s accept where we are right now and be grateful. Simply take a step; accept. Repeat. That’s what progress is.

What makes people happy is doing what you said you would do. Especially what you promise yourself.

From my weekly business meeting earlier this month.

Just like iron sharpens iron, we need to talk with one another. When we express our wants and needs in a respectful way, and listen the same way, it fosters respect and trust among work mates, team mates, friends and family.

John Schneider said in this interview, “We are better together than we are apart.”
This is an encouraging story about how someone can make a fresh start.

There is a universal principal that says we reap what we sow. So, doing the activities everyday that bring the results we want is important, such as changing our eating habits, starting an exercise routine, making calls for our home business, reading a positive spiritual or motivating quote and meditating on it, etc. Start small, with one or two things, but do them consistently, every day. All things starts small. Remember when we put the seed in the ground, water it gently everyday, then be patient for it to sprout.

 

Listen from the heart, not just with our ears. When we do that, we’re not thinking of what we’re going to say while the other person is still talking. It helps us understand each other better and helps our relationships with our customers, team members and work mates, and friends and family members as well.

FAITH TRUST BELIEF

Let’s apply these to our business and personal lives.

Food additives:  ugh!  Here is some of the latest information.

 

“Deciding what foods to buy was simpler when most food came from farms. Now, factory-made foods have made chemical additives a significant part of our diet.

In general, it’s best to avoid the following ingredients.

  • Aspartame, Acesulfame-K, Saccharin, Sucralose
  • Food dyes
  • Mycoprotein (Quorn-brand meat substitutes)
  • Partially hydrogenated oils (trans fat)

And don’t forget to cut back on sugar and salt, which cause more harm than all the other additives combined.”

For those a little shy about starting a conversation, here you go.  It can help our attitudes, our hearts, our customers and our team mates, thereby helping our work from the luxury of our home businesses.  For those of you do something similar to what I do, you know that even though much of the work is done at home, we also need to be out and about, meeting people, conversing and mingling.    mlr

BE COOL IN SUMMER

All of us (yes, I’m a big kid!) kids, big and small, look forward to summer! Outdoor sports, hiking, playing ball, running and walking in the park, swimming and going to the lake are all things we love to do in the summertime.

Being in the sun is fun, but it can also be dangerous. Our bodies can overheat and cause us to get sick. The Arizona Department of Health Services has a list of things that can help you be safe in the sun. Here are a few of them:

  • Use Sunscreen Every Day! Even on cloudy days, the sun’s rays can damage your skin. Wear sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Apply 10 minutes before going outside and reapply every 2 ½ hours or sooner if perspiring or engaging in water activities. Wearing sunscreen every day is as important as brushing your teeth!

  • Wear a Wide-Brimmed Hat and Lip Balm! A hat with a wide brim offers better protection for your scalp, ears, face and the back of your neck than a baseball cap or visor . And, protect lips with SPF 15+ lip balm.

  • Wear Sunglasses! Sunglasses reduce sun exposure that can damage your eyes and lead to cataracts. Check the label and choose sunglasses that block at least 90% of UVA and UVB rays.

  • Cover Up! Wear long sleeves and pants if possible to protect your skin when playing or working outdoors. Darker colors and fabric with a tight weave provide the most protection.

  • Limit Time in the Midday Sun! Limit your outdoor activities when the UV rays are strongest and most damaging (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Remember: Look for your shadow—if no shadow, seek cover!

  • Take Cover! Find something fun that doesn’t involve exposure to direct sun. Take cover under a tree, ramada or find an indoor activity inside a gym, library or classroom during peak UV.
