A Covid-19 Emotional Survival Guide

A Covid-19 Emotional Survival Guide
We are all on a train into a very uncertain time period. Some of us are in the locomotive. We’ve been in on what’s happening early, have been keeping up to speed and have been preparing. Some of us are riding somewhere in the middle, slowly becoming more and more aware of what’s happening around us and how we must adjust our behaviour and routines to this new environment. Others are in the caboose, way behind on what’s happening, confused and maybe in a little bit of denial. Wherever we are, I would argue that being emotionally strong and prepared is half the battle.

How to Love

How to Love

What would love do? I came across this question at the end of an article I was reading about love. I was reading about love because I wanted to understand how something as simple as increasing our capacity to love (even when it’s not easy) can better our world. I wasn’t just interested in how to better love our partners or our families or our friends. But also how we can collectively make the world a better place through the power of our love.

A Short Guide to Navigating Grief

A Short Guide to Navigating Grief
One day someone is here and the next day they are not. How do we process that? How do we move through the days leading up to the moment when our loved one passes and how do we wake up the next morning without them and continue through the days beyond that? I try to answer these questions, from personal experience, in this post.

8 Ways to Make Your 2020 Amazing

8 Ways to Make Your 2020 Amazing

Happy New Year! I hope you woke up this morning feeling refreshed and hopeful. 

How was 2019 for you? If you read the news regularly, you likely feel that the world falls somewhere on a scale between a complete mess and total anarchy.  I find this way of thinking so disheartening. Every year has its good and bad, its sadness and joy, its low moments and bright spots. It is a very personal thing as well — some people may have had a much harder year than others depending on where they live in the world or their current life situation. But whether we claim the year to have been a good or bad one, we can all say we have learned something. Many things, most likely, but at the very least something life-changing if we pay attention. Rather than dismissing the year which when you think about it, was a whole 365 days of your life, why don’t we instead take some time to reflect on our experiences and lessons learned in 2019 and start planning and dreaming for 2020?

Why I'm Putting Fun on My To-Do List

Why I'm Putting Fun on My To-Do List

Having more fun isn’t necessarily about riding roller coasters or partying with friends or even going on an epic trip. Having more fun for me is about finding pure joy in the everyday. It is about being able to see our lives through the lens of joy - that despite whatever everyday stresses we are dealing with or challenges we are facing, it is still OK and even good to feel good. And beyond just feeling good, we can see that there is a lot to love about our lives. From that place of joy, it is a lot easier to have fun without having to put it on your list. But for now...here are six ways to put fun on your to-do list.
