Does anyone here bite their fingernails? Ok, I’ll admit, I do. I bite my nails. It’s not something I’m proud of. But I’d bet my last meditation cushion that most of you do this too sometimes. I also pick at my fingers when I’m concentrating on something or lost in thou...

Hey. Hey you! Hey, wake up! Open your sweet eyes…Time to wake up. Come on, time to start your life! Reluctantly, you open one eye but only a little tiny bit to let some light in. You stretch your legs, tightening your muscles, then relaxing them again. You drift back t...

I mention mindfulness in all of my posts, it is part of my blog title, but I have never offered up a list of simple, real exercises to practice mindfulness. Being mindful is like exercise. It is like building muscles. If you don’t practice, you won’t have muscles. If y...

I watch my kids sometimes—while they’re eating. They zone out while stuffing bits of food in their precious mouths. They often talk while they’re putting food in their mouths. I say, “Don’t talk with your mouth full.” Of course, this is mainly because it is rude and I...

Hay fever.

 

I hate hay fever.

 

I hate hay fever so much that I want to take a torch to my nose. I am so sick and tired of having to just “deal” with it, and go to all these parties in outdoor places, full of pollen. While everyone else is relaxed and enjoying themselves...

When I was 10 years old, I used to love it when the mail came. I’d run to the mailbox, hoping to find my magazines inside. If one came, I’d run to my room, sit down at my desk while listening to Whitney Houston’s new album on a cassette tape (yes, I’m old). I’d put my...
