How often are your thoughts about things in the past or the future? Are you able to be in the present moment and enjoy where you are, right now? Whether you are constantly running around and too busy to focus on where you are now, or if you don’t like to think about where you are now, this podcast will get you to stretch your mind and encourage you to make friends with the present moment. We all can benefit from taking time out for ourselves, spend the next eight minutes doing just that and be in the moment!
In this weeks podcast we look at our problems and learn ways we can not only decide if they are big or small to us, but also how we want to look at them. We’ll stretch our minds and think about what we consider a problem now and what we thought was a problem in our past. We get to choose how we look at situations and we get to decide how we perceive our problems. But we can change our thoughts about a situation by looking at it from a different view.
How often do you spend trying to change someone else? Are you able to believe and accept the fact that the only person you can change is yourself? A friend of mine recently said “I can’t change it, I can only do my best with it” when talking about a family members personality trait. This attitude and recognition is so important if we want to lead a more peaceful life. Listen to this weeks podcast and stretch your mind to think about this and how you can bring more peace to your life by adopting this mantra when dealing with others.
“If it’s none of your business, don’t make it your business” is this weeks Mind Yoga Quick Quote. I’ll talk about and encourage you to stretch your mind and really think about how often we give our opinion when not even asked and why we use the excuse “I was just trying to help”. Once we can become aware of how often we try to help others when we were not asked to, and once we can start to “mind our own business”, we will learn to have more peace in our lives.
This week’s Mind Yoga Quick Quote is from a Tim McGraw song. Do you believe you are better than you use to be? Or, do you believe you are the person you are and you can’t change? In this week’s episode I’ll talk about how we all have free will and each and every day we choose the person we want to be. Who do you want to be? Think about that, start stretching your mind and take a listen!
“Take Control Instead of Losing Control” is this weeks quick quote. Do you find yourself losing the ability to think and act rationally? Do you lose your temper more than you care to admit? In this week’s episode I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about why…why do we let things get the best of us and how can we have more control of our lives? We can’t control others but we CAN control ourselves. Learn how you can do this and have more peace in your life.
“As we begin 2019 let’s leave our excuses in 2018”. It’s a New Year and time for a fresh start. In this week’s episode I talk about excuses and how we can’t move forward when we use excuses. We all use them, but how can we stop from doing so? Join me as I ask some mind stretching questions to get you thinking about how often you use excuses and the benefits of taking responsibility for our lives.
FORGIVENESS! It’s so important and we have total control whether we choose to forgive someone, but we often don’t. Why? Why can’t we move on and forgive others? As we begin a New Year, let’s try to forgive others (including ourselves) and start the New Year with a clean slate. In this week’s podcast I rebroadcast a previous episode on forgiveness and I also ask you if you can’t forgive someone, how can you expect others to forgive you? We all need forgiveness—we all have hurt people and not realized it. Forgiveness cleanses our soul and helps us to grow. Start now by getting out your Mental Mat and listening for the next few minutes.
This week’s podcast is a re-broadcast of an earlier Mind Yoga Quick Quotes and is one I got the most feedback on. Everyone Loves LOVE!

Listen and start exercising your mind and may your holiday season be filled with many moments with those you LOVE.
Our minds are so powerful and yet we often don’t give a second thought to our thoughts. Without a conductor, a train will become a runaway train, and our mind is similar.

I’ll ask you some warm up questions to get your mind stretched so you can start exercising your most important muscle—your Mind!

Take seven minutes for your mental health and listen.
Eleanor Roosevelt said “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”. This week we take a deep dive into this quote and really begin to uncover why this is true. People say things and we feel all different feelings based on what they said, but it is not what they said, but how we think about what they said, that makes us feel a certain way. Take out your Mental Mat and get ready to stretch your mind!
“Closed Minds never open New Doors”. In this weeks podcast I discuss the benefits of having an open mind and I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about if you do or not.

Listen and start your mental workout for the day!

Gratitude is something I encourage you to think about daily, not just at this time of year. Listen and learn how to get started.

This weeks quote is from the song Your Life is Now by John Melloncamp. It’s a reminder how if we stop playing victim and change our mindset, we can change our lives. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health but why do we not workout our minds like we do our bodies? Listen for just 8 minutes and see how you can begin to think differently, once you are aware of what you are thinking about.
‘When you replace ‘Why is this Happening to me?’ with ‘What is this trying to Teach me?’, Everything Shifts”.

How do we find peace when we disagree with others? This week's quote is from a book I am reading by Deborah Hanlon.

I'll challenge you to think about this throughout your week and hopefully you will learn we don't always have to be right to be happy.
