Wisdom…

I am still processing the experiences from the Wisdom 2.0 conference last month—it was all about bringing mindfulness to technology. One of the organizations who supported the conference, Between Four Eyes left a wonderful take-away card, on which were pearls of wisdom that I want to share with you.

Tips for mindful living from their team around the world:

  • Rest in bed for one extra minute and be thankful for another day.
  • Onwards, upwards, and inwards.
  • Shhhhh! Listen to nature – it’s talking to you!
  • Savor the aroma of your coffee.
  • Pause when perplexed, breathe when tense, rest when tired.
  • Switch from ego-centric to eco-centric.
  • Observe your food before you take the first bite.
  • Gaze into the sky and admire the wonder and beauty of Creation.
  • Put your phone down.
  • Listen to your body, respect its wisdom.
  • Lean on your dreams as you sway back and forth in the hardships of life.
  • Less is the new more.
  • Slow down and enjoy.
  • Practice gratitude as an antidote to greed.
  • Be aware of your fears and listen to their secrets.

Simple but true.

Between Four Eyes teaches strategies and skill-sets to enhance social-emotional competence, character development, and overall well-being among healthcare providers, educators, students and their parents.

"After thirty years of eating healthy foods and participating in regular, vigorous exercise, I was astounded to discover I have Coronary Artery Disease. In March of 2010, I had two stents placed in my Left Anterior Descending Artery- this was big. I consulted Robin Mallery, RN, knowing she is a local expert on Cardiac Rehabilitation. I especially respected her lifestyle of nutrition and physical fitness. Robin’s reassurance that I was doing many things correctly, and her instructions on how to fine-tune my program to deal with this life-threatening disease, was invaluable. Robin’s exquisite grasp of balancing traditional medicine with diet, exercise, relaxation and fun has helped me through this medical crisis". --Maiya Gralia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and cross-country ski instructor and coach
