How to be happier … right this moment

The advice is all over the internet. We know we should get enough sleep, eat right, exercise, connect with friends, volunteer, take a walk. But there’s one thing that seems to be missing from a lot of this happiness advice. Quit spending so much time on social media. Like, right now. Stop it. “Every day there is another article, video or piece of content that tells […]

FFS, Have a Little Faith, Woman

It’s not that hard. We get what we put out there. Our external life echoes the thoughts we have running through our heads. If our thoughts are chaotic and uncontrolled, we get chaos. If our thoughts are fear-based, we get a life filled with anxious moments. If we have a million conflicting dreams and desires, we experience unfilled wishes. And if our thoughts are calm […]
