Blog Update

Aging is catching up with me. Still working on a revamp of the EFTI blog, but need to attend to some personal health issues. Will be posting sporadically for the rest of December.  Hope to return come the New Year with a re-launch of the EFT store. Stay strong.

Protest By Taking Civic Action Civilly – Three Tips

How to act wisely on political issues

These are things I was taught way back when in Media High School. Still make sense.

Anger and violence are breeding grounds for more anger and violence. The ongoing angry discourses about the election do no good.

Emotional Fitness Tips

Tip one: Remember what matters and that means practicing kindness every way you can.

Tip two: Strengthen your self-soothing skills. Use EFT’s Easy Exercises. Here are four.

Thank you for all you do

Remember to share all you find of value on the internet.  All who post crave recognition. A like says “Thank You.” Comments say you have read and thought about the post. Sharing is a gift to three people: the blogger, the people you share with, and you for your kindness blesses you.

Stay strong, it takes some effort for life can be a painful struggle.

Make Merry Monday, Two Jokes

Joke #2

When a woman got married she put a shoebox in the closet and told her husband not to open it.

After over 50 years of marriage she was dying and told him to open the box.  When he opened it there were 2 doilies and $85,000.00 inside.

He asked why they were in the box.

She replied, “When I got married my mother told me to crochet a doily every time I got mad at you.”

He smiled to think she had only been mad at him twice.  Then he asked about the $85,000.00.

“That’s the money I got from selling the doilies.”

Emotional Fitness Thought

Laughing is one of the major Emotional Fitness Exercises.  When you cannot laugh, you probably are recovering from deep pain.  If you find laughing and enjoying much of each day difficult, think about getting more support and that might include the need for therapy.

Also work to improve your self-soothing skills. My eBook, Self-soothing To Create Calm in Your Life will help you do both. It is on sale not for $3.06. Buy it now.  It will do you more good than a latte and costs less.

SHABBAT SHALOM

May you walk in peace and may the light of love shine in and through you, now and forever

A QUOTE FOR THINKING ABOUT WHAT MATTERS

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates…

I am do not quote the bible often,  but thought this right for a Shabbat message.

A STAYING STRONG TIP

No matter what your beliefs about a higher power, a day devoted to a simpler life is strengthening.  To me that means thinking about what matters, , not spending money, not working on any  commercial ventures,  not using my beloved computer, turning off the cell phone,  connecting with friends, nature, my G-d.

Create your own version, your life will improve. Spend one day a week without traveling; turning on the tv, radio,  or computer.  Doing so  practices kindness for our planet.  Try it you might like it.

If you find relaxing and enjoying such a day difficult, try improving your self-soothing skills. My eBook, Self-soothing To Create Calm in Your Life will help you do both. It is on sale not for $3.06. Buy it now.  It will do you more good than a latte and costs less.
