This Phenomenal Habit

This Phenomenal Habit

Recently, a client of mine described a new habit they’ve taken up as “phenomenal.” It’s completely changed their perspective on life and their ability to deal with challenges. That habit? You guessed it: journaling once a day for a mere ten...

Thought For The Week: Journaling

Much too often, it seems to me like people either live in the past or the future. Just listen to the language they use. “I can’t wait until…” “Someday, when I get that promotion…” “If only I had…”  Or maybe this sounds more familiar:...
