“No-Fail” Friday: Which way do we go?

This week, we dove back in to the topic of decision-making, which is a popular one around here, and for good reason. Seems like there is always one on the horizon, big or small — or both.

This weekend, your “no-fail” mindfulness challenge comes in stages, with some tips for visualizing different scenarios, and using mindfulness to get a sense of which might be right for you. Take a listen below!

Sometimes, making the right decision takes time, so you may not solve it all in a weekend. You will walk away with skills to help you find your way to what’s right for you.

Often, the choice itself is part of the lesson, so if it’s easy, it’s probably not yours. ;-)

It’s funny how we engage with different myths, legends, and beliefs in our everyday lives, isn’t it? We pride ourselves on being super rational, and then, you know, there are stories like this one. Good for some giggles, or some beads of sweat – depends on your personal perspective.

Doesn’t it always, though?  Read More
