EP 736 – Stupid Can Be Fun

If corn oil is made from corn and vegetable oil is made from vegetables. What is baby oil made from? Why is an electrical outlet called an outlet when you plug things into it? Why does it hurt like hell to hit your funny bone? Why is it called a “drive through” if you have to stop? And finally, If the professor on Giligan’s Island can make a radio out of coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat? Today is Ask A Stupid Question Day and Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and having more fun! If laughter is the best medicine, reading the numerous lists of questions people have asked at the doctor’s office, the supermarket, or on the internet can certainly take the stress out of the everyday. Stupid questions can be funny conversation starters or interesting brain teasers when you are hanging out with friends. As for stupid conversation starters, try these ones out: Is a hotdog a sandwich? How many chickens would it take to kill an elephant? Or what would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? And finally you can annoy your friends even further with these tricky stupid questions:What is always coming, but never arrives? Or If a plane crashes on the border between the United States and Canada, where do they bury the survivors? If you had fun with today’s wellness tips, let me know. You can leave me a review on amazon or through your #alexa app. Looking for more ways to build your resiliency, take my free on-line resiliency test at worksmartlivesmart.com under the resources and courses tab.

We will never feel at ease or in control if our task list is so long that it doesn’t allow for a little downtime. A lack of self-care causes more stress. Self-care during challenging times is critical. Without it, we can not be resilient. We need to give ourselves permission to do less and to focus on our needs. To take care of ourself is restorative. People who focus on self-care are happier and have more stamina to get more accomplished. Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Self-Care Awareness Month: This pandemic is taking a toll on our work, our economy, our social lives, and also on our mental health.

EP 734 – Show That You Care Send A Love Note

Who doesn't love receiving a special note of affection from someone they cherish? Well, my boys don't or at least that's what they told me. Apparently, my love notes added to their lunchbox when I was out of town was embarrassing. Opening your lunch bag and having one of these notes fall in front of your friends was horrific. How could their mother do this to them? It was so horrible though, that one day I found several of these notes tucked away in my son's room. When questioned, he admitted that he really did like them, but he would prefer to find them under his pillow instead. I can live with that. So here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Love Note Day. Express yourself. Let the person know how much you love them, miss them, are grateful for them, and appreciate them. Hide your love notes someplace special. Stick it to the water bottle, inside their fridge, or attach it to the backside of the remote control. My challenge for you today is to do one thi...

I love purging my files and this summer saw me get rid of more than one full cabinet of paper! Now is a very good time to do some fall cleaning.

Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Love Your Files Week. While most of us are fairly paperless, it is a good time to look through past paper files and purge.

EP 730 – Pause The World Day

Sirens, television, computers, printers, car stereos, endless talking — Most of us accept this daily racket as normal. It is not until we step away, into a peaceful setting, such as when we are walking in a park or camping at the lake, that we notice how loud our life can get. And it is odd what we can get use to as normal. During the heat and humidity of this summer, I had the fans on high and it didn’t keep me up at night. A few weeks later, when it cooled off at night and there was no need for the fans, I was kept up by a cricket outside my window. Constant or uncontrollable noise can stress our bodies by raising our blood pressure and heart rate and by releasing stress hormones. Part of Pause The World Day on September 21st is to relax and to enjoy the silence. Most of us rarely experience true silence, but silence can help us to get in touch with our emotions, provide us with a sense of calm and leave us feeling rejuvenated. Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency ...

EP 728 – Long Lost Friends

Have you lost touch with an old colleague? Have you ever thought about reaching out to a childhood friend? In the ‘old’ days, that would have been almost impossible and possibly very expensive. However, today, it is relatively easy to search down most people from our past.

EP 727 – RESPECT

I disagree with the usual sentiment. Respect is earned, not given. I believe that Respect is given, first. But you can lose my respect and you may have to earn it back. Our default setting should be to respect every person we meet. Every single one. Respect is not just deep admiration for someone elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements. Respect is due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others. Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Respect Day. Start by treating people with a more polite approach. Are you saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’? Respect their time, energy, and experience. Treat people they way you would hope that they would treat you with. Sometimes, people mistakenly think that they must agree when showing respect. That is not true. It is very possible, to disagree in a manner that demonstrates politeness and consideration. That can be done without berating the person, without insulting them or...
