Today’s Poem ~ I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

John Keats

I WANDERED lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.


Today’s Health Tip ~ Have You Tried Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is Listening to Your Body

Intuitive eating comes down to paying attention to your body, whether you feel sated, says explains Tracy L. Tylka, professor of psychology at Ohio State University who has extensively studied intuitive eating. Through her Intuitive Eating Scale, she notes four main characteristics of the approach:

    • Labeling no foods as forbidden.
    • Avoiding emotional eating.
    • Trusting the body’s hunger and satiety cues to guide food choices.
    • Choosing foods that both make the person feel good in his or her body and taste good.

“At times, intuitive eaters may eat for reasons other than hunger, such as to try a certain food or go beyond a comfortable state of satiety when eating a tasty meal,” Tylka says. “However, these individuals typically do not stress about these minor deviations or feel the need to ‘compensate’ by restricting food intake elsewhere.”




Today’s Positive Thought ~ How Old Are You?

“When one begins to think of oneself as growing old, one is already old (Elsie de Wolfe).” I know folks well up in their nineties who still retain the heart and spirit of a young child. I can see the young boy or girl sparkling in their eyes and in the excitement for living in their voices. They have not stopped dreaming and believing good things are waiting up the road for them. After all, what is age but a number. 

Optimism Works ~ Want to Lead? Be an Optimist

In The Leadership Advantage, an essay from the Drucker Foundation’s Leader to Leader Guide, Warren Bennis tells us that optimism is one of the key things people need from their leaders in order to achieve positive results. Every “exemplary leader that I have met,” writes Bennis, “has what seems to be an unwarranted degree of optimism – and that helps generate the energy and commitment necessary to achieve results.” Source

John W. Gardner, former secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, said that leaders provide hope. The best leaders see what we can be when we are our best selfs. They inspire us to inspire others. When we live optimistically we lead our families, neighbors, and colleagues toward a better tomorrow.

Today’s Inspiration ~ Want to Find Joy?

“Joys come from simple and natural things: mists over meadows, sunlight on leaves, the path of the moon over water.”
