Worrying less, living more.

Whether you have six kids, one, or none; a high-powered corporate job, busy restaurant, or you’re unemployed; you’re well-off financially, struggling to make ends meet, or somewhere in between…we all want to be happy, right? And we aren’t defined by our jobs, income, or externalities, but that’s a topic for another day.

I tend more Buddhist on the definition of true happiness, that it’s about love, compassion, equanimity, and sympathetic joy (see article below on the four immeasurables).

Lifeyum came into being out of a desire to share what helped me get a lot lighter, more content, and begin truly enjoying my life (hence feel good, do good). But this isn’t a one-way street. I want to hear from you!

How do you quiet your mind, find contentment, your happy?

Perhaps your zen spot is through seizing the day. Maybe you aren’t there…yet.

Whatever the mode, wherever you are, I’d love to hear from you. And I’d really love to start profiling your ways of getting there.

{Please drop me a note here if you feel like sharing. Your methods, questions, comments, and suggestions are so welcome. I’ll only share stories on lifeyum with your explicit approval.}

Of course, hope very much to see some of you at yoga this week. Click the logo below for this week’s lifeyum letter, including yoga classes.

Inspiration for today’s post is thanks to the inimitable Jennifer Fontanals Woolford. More on the magic of JFW to come.

A cheerful week to all.
