Shall We Meet

Posted by Linda

Koala Bears are cute little animals, but they also can be fierce. I think that what is going on in the United States today is bring out some of the ferocity. It’s also bringing rise to a lot of frustration. I am speaking for myself, but ever since the election, I haven’t felt the same. I may have disagreed with things in this country, but I have always felt pretty safe, like we would work it out. Now, I don’t know at all. Everyday I wake up wondering what new and devastating thing has happened, and much of it is due to the inexperience and volatile way matters are being handled. I fear that we are headed for a totalitarian government and that we can not get along with our allies, much less anyone else. School children in Canada are not being allowed to visit the US.When has this happened?

What can we do to make the changes that we want to and to feel more settled in our lives. I am offering a group meeting via conference call once a week to air our sadness and fear and figure out how we can best impact the future in a positive way. There will be a nominal fee. Please email me at linda.m.harris@gmail.com if interested in joining.

Most stores have Gluten-free products, if not online shopping is a way to get the choices. Look also for Gluten-free Shampoos, skin care and toothpaste. Adhesives have also Gluten, this is something people don’t think about it usually.

A LITTLE TIME AWAY FROM IT ALL

How about a mini-vacation at home every day? It seems like everybody I spoke to has some sort of stress in life and need some time off, time away, or a chance to “chill out” alone. You can take some time off each and every day, you only need to plan it and make some space in your schedule for it. It is essential for your overall well-being. Asking yourself what you like best in vacation, helps you to find the things you like to see, do and have  at home to feel comfortable, happy and relaxed as well.

For me for example I like to see, coming in a hotel is: the nice little touches of having a cute prepared basket prepared with some samples of lotions and shampoos in the bathroom and the towels who are pretty and soft. I like to go swimming in the hotel pool, which is one of the sports I like best to relax.  I love walking and exploring the new area and then go shopping for some kind of small cute things. Looking for gifts for my friends to bring home is another favored thing for me to do. I love great parks, gardens, museums or art galleries. In general nature is the best for me to relax, go back to the hotel take a power nap and get ready for a good dinner with nice ambiance and a good conversation with a great friend.

You can make it a habit to schedule some of your own favored things to see and do in your own home and neighborhood. Sometimes we need to be creative and resourceful to make our daily life more fun, relaxed and exciting . The tourist offices I found, is a good way to get inspired to find new nice places to see and go in your own backyard…..try something new, explore and experiment what you like best to see, do and have and translate it on a smaller scale to live your own mini-vacation daily.
