Mindful Moments

They Don’t Say That Anymore?

Recently I asked my 14-year-old niece, “Do you use the word ‘bummer’?” As a professional speaker, I’m very aware of how important it is to stay current with my words and examples. She looked at me with that “OK, Boomer” look. Uh oh. No, not used any longer. I’m really glad I asked. So, where […]

What's love got to do with it? EVERYTHING!

What’s love got to do with it? EVERYTHING!

Is there passion in your life…for you? Recently I had a post go viral. It was Adam Leipzig’s insightful TED talk, “How to know your life purpose in 5 minutes.” I watched LinkedIn as my post began to trend. First a couple of thousand people viewed my post. Then, in the days after I posted […]

How to mindfully navigate the holiday season

Have you noticed a recording already playing in your head about what might happen at that next family holiday meal or party with friends or colleagues?

What do you notice around your workspace?

OUCH!! Words can hurt, IF we let them

I spoke before this wonderfully collaborative group of HR professionals recently (Southeastern PA (SEPA) SHRM chapter) and told them how I took my new dress that I was wearing into the dry cleaner. My cleaner responded by saying how much she liked the dress too and asked me, “Does it come in a smaller size?” […]

You’re in MY Seat!

I decided it was time to make my move. I had waited patiently — a full three days after hearing Jon Kabat-Zinn, the pioneer of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, make a firm request: that people seated at the back of the room move to the front. “I will move people around,” he warned, peering into the […]

FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY…Holiday Memories!

  In this busy holiday season full of activities, I invite you to Pause and Notice.  This is an ideal time to use all your senses to make lasting and meaningful memories with loved ones. And it is an opportunity to “Let Go.” According to the Mayo Clinic: “Letting go of grudges and bitterness can […]

Eating Raw Onions at Work?!

Here’s a “take away” if you read nothing else: Notice your judging mind with compassion and maybe a bit of humor.   Would You Eat Raw Onions at Work or Judge a Person Who Did? Several years ago, while I was working in the New Brunswick corporate office of Johnson & Johnson (J&J), I went down […]
