Nine Ways to Find Peace Every Day

Written by Amelia Harvey (Life  Coach) Unconsciously, many of us put off feeling calm and peaceful until we can get to a yoga class, afford a massage, put our feet up on the weekend, or escape to a relaxing location.    Which means, in normal life, we rush around in a chronic state of stress, emotional turbulence, and just not feeling like the best version of ourselves.   Instead of waiting for the opportunity to relax, all it takes is a few tiny tweaks to the way we go about our day and we can experience more peace straight away.   Here are 10 ways to infuse more peace into your day – minimal time and effort required:   1. Peaceful shower. When you hop in the shower, take a deep breath and enjoy the sensation of the warm water on your body.   2. Cap your social media[…]

Joanne Gosselin – My Boston Marathon

  Attached are two pictures of me running the recent Boston Marathon. The first one (with the big building in the background) was taken as I ran the final 500m along Boylston St. with the finish line in sight. The second one was taken with 1 mile (1.6km) to go – as the sign says. I was very tired and frozen in these pictures, as evidenced by the low feet and clenched hands. Joanne ran the New York marathon this year and did very well.  She talked about the freezing conditions, 5 degrees , raining and a head wind.  Joanne finished with hypothermia and needed medical attention, she says, …But as these pictures show, I still ran to the finish with a smile, and it was an experience I will never forget. Definitely one of the highlights of my life, to be a part of such an iconic and major[…]
