Focus on what you want

Everyday I have been doing things to reach my goal. What has been hard for me is to not take on too many different things and projects at once. Yes I multitask, and eventually gets everything done, but after having anxiety and stress kick in.

So now I take the time to write things out and plan them, so that I can not lose my focus on getting the most important things done first. This also helps me to remember those details that I might miss in between. I deal with my stress and anxiety by journaling and writing. Life can get busy for us and we forget to focus on ourselves also. So take time to slow down at times. Take some time out for yourself and avoid stressful situations as much as you can….Listening to:

Can’t Please Everybody!!

You can’t let people scare you. You can’t go your whole life trying to please everyone else. You can’t go through life worried about what everyone else is going to think. Whether it’s your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You can’t let the judgment of others stop you from being you. Because if you do, you’re no longer you. You’re someone everyone else wants you to be.

Having A Sense Of Humor

Let your personality, and sense of humor shine through, that’s whats makes you, you. Even God had a sense of humor. Just take a look around you…

1. A sense of humor IS a choice of attitude and your willingness to look for, find, and enjoy the “funny” in your everyday life.

2. A sense of humor IS a tool you can use to reduce stress and anxiety, help you escape the seriousness of life that can weigh you down, and increase your ability to deal with life’s daily demands and challenges.

3. A sense of humor IS a release to help you relieve tension, relax, let down your guard, laugh, open up, connect, bond, and improve your relationships.

4. A sense of humor IS a coping strategy to help you succeed in overcoming tragedy, personal loss, embarrassment, hurt, frustration, anger, disappointment, and change. When you learn how to separate “who you are” from “what you do,” you can laugh at your circumstances, without damaging your self worth.

5. A sense of humor IS a magical gift within each of us, which requires feeding, nurturing, and developing. It has the power to attract, invite, include, rescue, protect, preserve, heal, restore, amuse, entertain, energize, and enhance your everyday life and relationships at work and home.

5 things a “sense of humor” is NOT!

1. Having a sense of humor does NOT mean you have to be a comedian or try to make others laugh.

2. Having a sense of humor does NOT require you must have the ability to make quick hilarious remarks, witty come-backs or tell funny stories and jokes.

3. Having a sense of humor does NOT insist you have to laugh at everything, especially if it offends you or if you are the brunt of another’s misuse of humor.

4. Having a sense of humor does NOT provide you opportunity to sling sarcasm or vent feelings of hostility, anger and resentment by using negative come-backs, insults or putdowns.

5. Having a sense of humor does NOT give you permission to say anything that might hurt another’s feelings, ridicule, poke fun, intimidate, alienate, patronize, degrade, belittle, embarrass, pick on or offend.

Fall Skin Care Tips

With Fall approaching it’s time to get our skin ready for the change in weather!

Adjust your skin care routine for fabulous fall skin.

As the days grow shorter, the temperatures drop, and the air becomes drier, your skin may lose precious moisture. Autumn is a time of transition, and the best autumn skin care routines will correct any summer damage that has occurred and prepare your skin for winter.

Sun, chlorine, and saltwater may have taken a toll on your skin throughout the summer, so fall is a time to exfoliate and moisturize.

Follow these fall skin care tips for fabulous, healthy skin:

Ditch the soap. Fragrant soapy scrubs might feel (and smell) wonderful after a day at the beach, but they leave your skin dry. When fall arrives, switch to a soap-free hydrating cleanser. It’s time to put away the gels and bring out the creamy body wash.
Exfoliate with an oil-based scrub. The summer sun and chlorine may have left your skin feeling dry and flaky. Start the new season off with a full-body exfoliation session. Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they exfoliate and hydrate.
Switch from lotion to cream. As the air becomes drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they both reduce water loss from the outer layer of skin and provide hydration to this layer of skin at the same time.
Protect your lips. Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter. Use a non-petroleum based lip balm for best results.
Invest in hand cream. Hands often become dry and cracked during fall and winter. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. Start moisturizing your hands now to ensure soft, supple hands all winter long.
