Keeping the Bliss when Stress takes over

Yah that would be me..... Recent big changes and my bliss took a vacation without me.......

Dang hate when that happens..

What about you? That ever happen? Ok I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one!

I guess I should rat myself out and mention I suffer from Anxiety Attacks and the big "D" Depression. I have been on medication for my depression for years but I choose not to take anything narcotic (I'm in recovery) for my Anxiety. So these top ten suggestions are for severe cases like mine...

What and how do we get our Bliss on?

Well I gotta few tricks up my sleeve to jump start the whole process..

1. Go to Puritans and score some I-Theanine 100mg 30 capsule bottle.
They are running special 5 bottles for $17.99 killer deal!!
I have taken up to 400 mg at time. It is a incredible Stress Reliever...

From Puritans Pride Website:
A close relative of Glutamate, studies indicate that L-Theanine interacts with the neurotransmitter, GABA (gammaminobutyrate).** GABA, known fo…

Here's a post from 2009 Earth Day

Happy Green Day!
Happy Earth Day, Earthlings! What a beautiful day to enjoy the Earth and all the sentient beings that inhabit and share our Planet. We care and are very concerned for the wellbeing of our Planet and everyone and thing on it!

Luv Shanti

Let's take time today to do something for the Planet, as well as make a commitment to change one thing that can lead to awareness for our Planet. Here is a list of ideals that we can all implement (and a lot of us already do) on a daily basis.

1. Recycle cans, bottles, and plastics and use glass bottles for water on the go.

2. Take a cloth or recycled tote whenever you shop.

3. By recycled goods instead of new. Furniture, bikes, dishes, etc. is …

Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Challenge: REVEAL!!!

Today is the big Day for all of us who joined in on the Arm Candy Train! Ok the reality is I luv bangles, beads and bobbles.. And when I was growing up there was a cart inthe Lansing Mall called that! Ok it was the 70's and all.......
My luv of Bangles, beads and yes bobbles(whatever that is) came from early childhood. I couldn't get enough bracelets,and loved layering them! In the 70's that was the norm, pretty much! And sinceI am Half Italian I guess the Gypsy spirit comes thru my blood. I can't think of a day I don't layer bracelets.. And usually they have significant meaning to me... And help remind me of the bigger picture whenever I get caught up in the details! LoL!
So this Challenge was such a natural for me. Not going out of my comfort zone and sometimes that is just so ok! After our huge move and remodel on the house all in short order I need to be groovin in that zone, for a bit at least!
So without further ado...... This is where my head is at right now Bang…

Bye Bye Discovery

Thank You Mollie Harrigan for such a beautiful photo from the beach in Satellite...
