"I believe that faith 

might be precisely that ability 

to trust the river, to trust the flow and 

the lover. It is a process that we don’t 

have to change, coerce, or improve. 

We need to allow it to flow."


—Richard Rohr

A study conducted at the 

Eastern Ontario Research Institute 

found that people who exercised twice 

a week for 10 weeks felt more competent 

socially, academically, and athletically. They 

also rated their body image and self-esteem 

higher. Best of all, rather than the physical 

changes in their bodies being responsible 

for the uptick in confidence, it was the 

immediate, endorphin-fueled positivity 

from exercise that made all the 

difference. Schedule your exercise 

to make certain it happens, or 

the days will just slip away. 


—Dr. Travis Bradberry

"Fear, anger, resentment, 

and stress are poisons you create 

in your mind. If you take charge of your

 mind, you can create a chemistry 

of blissfulness."

 "Positive emotions flood our brains 

with dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that not only make us feel good, but dial up the learning centers of our brains to higher levels. They help us organize new information, keep that information in the brain longer, and retrieve it faster later on. And they enable us to make and sustain more neural connections, which allows us to think more quickly and creatively, become more skilled at complex analysis and problem solving, and see and invent new ways of doing things."
