Rebuilding Trust in Your Relationship

November 01, 2016 | By Juline Mosser

Is it possible to rebuild trust within a relationship? Yes!! Relationships thrive when partners are able to be themselves, feel supported, be vulnerable and trust their partner. When those expectations are not met, trust is broken. We are all aware of the more common violations of trust, infidelity, lying, etc. However, there are an endless […]

Mindful Moment: Just one moment

October 30, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

Everywhere you look there are 5 ways to accomplish something.  5 ways to be happier.  5 ways to be thinner, smarter, more conversational.  Like most people, I am a sucker for these.  I am a life-learner and I am always out to better myself.  Yet, I have found that all of the lists, tricks and […]

Mindful Moment: Experience Fall

October 23, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

Each season highlights how there are differences in each moment.  The breeze in autumn feels different than a spring breeze.  The air smells more earthy than it smells in summer.  The days get shorter and the sun shines on the colors in the trees in a special way.  Somehow, we know when it feels like fall […]

Mindful Moment: We’ll see . . .

October 17, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

  There is a lovely Zen Buddhist story about a farmer’s response to the ups and downs of life.  The story starts with the farmer benefiting from good weather which led to good crops.  His friends pat him on the back and say, “what luck” and “how wonderful.”  His response is simply, “we’ll see.”  The […]

Mindful Moment: Simple Things

October 10, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

If you feel like life has become more complex, you’re not alone.  Whether it’s politics, parenting, integrating personal and work life, or trying to find contentment; life feels challenging.  On top of that, there is an overload of information on how to find happiness and ways to do everything “right.”  Everything seems like a problem […]

Radical Self-Care

October 03, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

We talk a lot about the importance of self-care.  Chances are you can list many of the components of self-care – adequate sleep, a healthy diet, a healthy balance of work and play and so forth.  The components become a mindless mantra on what we know we should do, but yet never get done.  Life […]

Mindful Moment: Dreaded tasks

October 03, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

Mindful Moment: The dreaded tasks we put off Rarely is there a day full of only pleasurable experiences.  Most days include the tedious tasks of life that we don’t really enjoy.  It could be doing the dishes, paying bills, or a certain part of your job.  It’s the stuff we have to do even though […]

Mindful Moment: Go slower

September 26, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

How often do you feel like you had more time in the day?  Do you ever have the feeling that time seems to go by to fast?  You’re not alone.  It’s an ironic part of being human in today’s society.  We feel like we need or want more time, yet most of the time we […]

Mindful Moment: Everyday Pleasantries

September 19, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

How often do you say “hello” or “good morning” out of habit?  Or, how often does someone say “hello” to you as they are walking by and looking at their cell phone?  A lot of us get caught up in the movement of the day and find ourselves repeating “hello” or “good morning” without much […]

Mindful Moment: Floor Time

September 12, 2016 | By Julie Luzarraga

I visited my 2 year-old nephew at his Montessori school last week and was reminded of how much I love the concept of floor time.  Floor time is moving from your chair and getting on a child’s level; letting the younger guide the trajectory of the play.  Instead of telling a child what to do or […]
