The Benefits of Being Present

I was in a yoga class recently, bending and twisting to bring my body into a pose that I was once able to move into seamlessly. As I struggled to find my breathe, I found my mind racing and judging my muscles and joints because I was unable to find what I once so easily achieved. In my moment of struggle and negative self-talk, the beautiful person leading the class quietly whispered “be present, be here in this moment and nowhere else.

With commitment and a plan of motion, there is an energy of consequence, comm

How You Can Help Others Be Their Best

We were raised to be humble, to be gracious and kind, and to never ever boast about how wonderful we are. And so, we shrink ourselves.
