S-T-R-E-T-C-H - What do you need right now? Ask for it.

Help, a hug, comfort, a joke, a loan, an outing buddy, a little inspiration, some how to from someone who has been there and done that. If we were meant to go it and do it alone, we’d be alone instead of with millions and millions of other people.

Going it alone - struggling - suffering ... talk about fatiguing ...

So, S-T-R-E-T-C-H your heart – your pride – your whatever and ask for help today. You will be awed by what will happen next! (And so will the person who gives it to you.)

Love on! Viveca

•Tea-Leaf Reading You Can Trust (think green)

Special Thanks to Tracy of Hormonal Haven for this energizing tip!

Tea leaves at the bottom of your cup really do reveal clues about your future.

See green leaves in your mug a couple of times a day? All signs point
to long-term benefits for your ticker. Research shows that just two 8-
ounce servings a day of polyphenol-rich green tea can dramatically
reduce the risk of dying from heart disease and can cut the risk of
stroke in women as well. Wondering what the future holds? Put your
money on green tea, not fortune-tellers.
The polyphenols in green tea gobble up free radicals and improve
artery function, both of which help keep diseases at bay. Drinking 16
ounces a day (about 500 milliliters) cut the risk of death due to
cardiovascular disease by 26 percent in a recent study. And the more
green tea people drank, the more protection they got. Although both
men and women were shielded, the benefits were more pronounced in

Two cups a day isn't a lot, but even if you don't average that much
green tea daily, don't give it up. Drinking at least half a cup (4
ounces) a day was linked to some reduction in mortality risk. So grab
a teacup, point that pinkie, and drink to a healthy future.

Great Expectations & how to handle them …

Here we are – November 6th. Many of us are already on edge thanks to all that Halloween candy for the kids…! Today - be bold – be your own best friend & throw out whatever remains! Then, pause and get on top of your “to dos” by exercising your Ds …

Ds … DO it now, Delegate, Delay or Delete. You Decide!

Step 1: 1st make your “To Do” List (put on a little Chopin to get in the mood!)

Step 2: Review Your “To Do” List & elaborate i.e. “Bake Christmas Cookies.” How many types? How many batches? By When? Who’s helping you?

Step 3: 2nd Review. Write a “D” word next to each item as in DO (with a “now or soon” date);Delegate (with a name); Delay or Delete (with a happy face next to each!)

To decide, I ask myself “How Important Is It Anyway?” How important is it that I bake 5 different cookies vs. 2? How important is it to write 100 Christmas cards before Christmas vs. spread them out through the New Year? How important is it to decorate inside, outside and upside down …

What matters most right now is to take good care of ourselves and to nourish our connection to each other and spirit. This holiday season you can relax and enjoy. Or you can join the crowd - rush around, rush others and feel tired and hassled. You get to decide!!!
