Just the Best: How to Stress Less, Under-Calendar, Face Your Cravings & More

I don’t know everything that’s happening astrologically (could it be the 5 planets in or near retrograde?), but I feel like a wave of intensity hit me at the start of April and has hardly stopped for a second.

Has it been that way for you too?  If so, you’re not alone.  At least, I’m with you.

Whatever’s happening, I trust we can see this through and be all the better for it, if we commit to caring for ourselves, authenticity, and courage, even if we’re only able to take the tiniest of steps.

With this in mind, I’ve included articles on how to turn down the volume on stress, simplify your life, and fortify yourself in this edition of my favorite self-improvement and personal development articles.  Here’s to building our resilience, staying aligned with our truth, and expanding our compassionate presence.

Here’s my selection of the absolute best articles to help you heal and shine and be a beacon of light for others.

I’m including a selection of articles to encourage those who feel fear, depression, and uncertainty during this U.

How to Avoid the Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

White Lily

In her best-selling memoir, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing, Bronnie Ware shares 5 disappointments people commonly express as they near death. See if any of these ring true for you:

  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
  3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
  5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Do one or more of these fit for you?  Then you know where to begin to avoid last minute regrets. And it would be good to start now because it takes time to change habits.

However, your regrets may have an entirely different flavor.  Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until you’re dying to know what you’ll regret. Just take an honest look at your life right now.

If you died this very moment, what would you regret? 

Grab a piece of paper and jot down what immediately comes to mind.  Then sit with it for awhile.

Can We Get There From Here?

The Crater

Editor’s Note:  I’m delighted to share a guest post today from the brilliant Sandi Amorim and an opportunity to receive a free spot in her new program the 100 Day Promise.

That’s what I asked myself the past few months as I explored the process of change. Because change is what most people want, and whether or not we admit it, most of us have a list of things we’d like to change about ourselves.

The problem with change isn’t that we want to change. Change is natural and inevitable; nothing in life is static.

“Every single thing changes and is changing always in this world.” – Saigyo

The problem with change is that we beat ourselves up when we fail to change in the way we envision. And we do it so often it becomes a cycle that creates the future; an endless loop of disappointment and self-recrimination.

When we really want to make a change, but feel defeated before we begin, is it possible to reach our goal?
