as the Equinox, a time when the length of night is equal
to the length of the day. It is the start of a quieter
personal cycle devoted to work, home, our families and

|FOR THE MIND: Happiness is a Choice|
| ||Happiness is a core desire, which most of us hope to
acquire. The good news is, we have the internal ability
to create our own happiness through our mind set. The
bad news is, we may have to change some of our old
thoughts, perceptions and expectations. |
When life events occur, such as losing a job, getting a
divorce, moving, or financial strains; we may think our
world is coming to an end. Our inner thoughts and
voices tell us the boat is rocking, the other shoe is
dropping, and the bottom is falling out.
Many of these negative thought processes and
judgments, have been inherited from family, friends,
teachers, bosses and our ancient history. Our minds
play old dark messages, like broken records, informing
us how bad things seem and how much blacker they
could become. Feelings of gloom and unhappiness
rattle around in our heads, as if they were the ultimate
As we look more closely - we become aware that we
have the power to create happiness as well as
unhappiness in our minds. We know when we are
feeling positive, we see the world through rose colored
glasses. When we are feeling blue, all seems lost.
If we take the time to stop, dump the old programming
and view our lives through childlike non-judgmental
eyes - we see things differently. We realize most
situations have a silver lining. We watch the veil lift,
offering opportunities and possibilities for future
happiness and fulfillment.
Happiness comes from using our mental and emotional
strength to positively color and transform our thinking.
When happiness becomes our core goal, our world
reflects happiness. Happiness is both the goal and the
reward, which starts with the choice to be happy.
|FOR THE BODY: Ten Healthful Nutritional Ideas|
| ||1. Take the time to shop and read labels. |
2. Buy whole, unprocessed foods. Avoid refined grains
and partially hydrogenated trans - fats, lurking in
commercial bakery products.
3. Buy organic when you can, they are NOT exposed to
herbicides and pesticides and they taste better.
4. Avoid sugar, refined and fake sweeteners. No one
gets thin from nutri-sweet and it may cause headaches
or stomach upset.
5. Stay away from fried foods - they suck up more fat
than you need.
6. You do not have to clean your plate. Don't stuff
yourself. In a restaurant - take home the extra
7. Eat in a relaxed atmosphere - don't rush. It helps
your digestion to eat slowly and enjoy the food.
8. Eat because you are hungry, not because you are
emotionally upset. Stress causes poor digestion.
9. Plan your food, and your meals. If you let yourself
get hungry - you may grab anything. That's why they
call it "fast food".
10. Food is an enjoyment of life. Honor good food as
nourishment, energy, vitality, and special fuel to keep
