Well-balanced, tasty meals. About three months ago, we deleted wheat products. After a few weeks it’s made going past desserts at buffets a little easier. There are always gluten-free bakeries if we feel a strong craving!
Organic vegetables and fruit are appearing in more local grocery stores and markets, along with great varieties of locally-grown produce and exotic foods.
Sleeping ~ How much is enough? How much is too much?
Health experts suggest a minimum of seven hours. I’ve read that any hour before midnight is extra powerful.
From personal experience the times I go to bed before 10:30 make waking up and getting up at 6:30 very easy. Rested, bright and alert, ready to greet a new day.
To you, dear blog readers, I share what I wrote in my introduction to Out of Frantic, Into Focus Workbook.
Dedicated to readers who may feel:
Frantic with worry
Rushed with living
Anxious about what is happening
Nervous about what might happen
Release the fear valves and obstructions of years of relative silence to open up new avenues for you as a speaker.
Look at life differently with fresh eyes. Speaking will result in offers of assistance from those you admire. Opportunities to be part of dynamic teams at work and volunteer groups in your communities will appear as word of your speaking prowess spreads. Leadership chances will be offered to you. Career opportunities will ease the stress of feeling locked into a one-way career.
With preparation and practice you can replace your panic with poise!
Recently I met yet another adult who confessed to a lifelong fear and dislike of public speaking. Like many of you his fear began with an unhappy childhood experience of being forced to prepare and deliver a speech in front of classmates.
He went through school and university avoiding any classes that required participation. Some students thrive in speaking in front of their classmates. I feel blessed to have been in that group, although one-on-one I was introspective and shy.
