Choosing Action Over Fear: Preparing for hurricanes (and storms of life) in Orlando

Have you ever noticed that sometimes people try to get us to do things by scaring us?  The “or else…”  sometimes feels omnipresent in our world.  I see it a lot in politics (on both sides), in the media, even just product advertising.  Sometimes we even do it to ourselves (“I’d better not eat that […]

How the heck do you meditate? (AKA Meditation, Trusting Yourself, and Mumford & Sons)

Ok, I know that meditation is good for me/us.  (Really, really good for us.  If you want to know more check this out.)  I know that I could use some meditation in my life.  But I don’t know how to meditate. I’ve considered buying a book.  But will a book really tell me how to […]

Birthdays and other milestones of life

This week was my birthday (it was lovely, thank you!) and it got me thinking. I decided to do some research on the psychology of birthdays.  I read about feeling grateful on birthdays, how birthdays can motivate us, how we can get “the birthday blues“, and making birthday wishes.  I read commentary on how our […]

What is wellness, really?

You might have noticed that May is Mental Health Month.  Mental Health America chose this year’s theme, which is wellness.  I feel like wellness is a word we frequently use, but don’t frequently think about.  So, let’s stop and think about it.  What is wellness?  What does it mean to you?  What do you feel […]

Tragedy, grief, loss, and compassion

I feel I would be remiss if I didn’t address the events in Boston in this week’s blog, and yet I’m concerned that we’re all a little overloaded with news, and maybe it would be better to take a step back. I don’t know what is best.  But I do know this: as a human […]

Krista’s Time-Burger

I know what you’re thinking:  “What in the world is a Time-Burger???”  I thought the same thing two weeks ago in my human development class when the group presenting said we were going to do an activity called the Time-Burger.  What???  And then they started to explain… Well, here’s the thing.  The more I think […]

Decluttering Life and Slowing Down the World

Have you ever felt like the world was just spinning too fast?  You had too many things to do and not enough hours to do them?  You’re running just to keep up?  I have had that kind of week: busy at school, busy at work, requests for my time from my boyfriend, friends, and family… […]
