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.

"When my husband of 34 years died I lost my interest in cooking.  Instead I began relying on quick frozen organic entrees and dinners. After three years I decide to improve the quality of my diet, so I contacted Robin Mallery. Robin helped me create a more nourishing and healthful diet that took my busy teaching and consulting schedule into consideration.

It was a joy to work with Robin. She is knowledgeable, supportive, intuitive, and warm.  I highly recommend her as a Heart Healthy Coach.

Through lifestyle counseling, the sharing of her delicious and healthy family recipes, and an informative and fun "field trip" to a local whole food market, I have shifted to an eating plan that is healthy, delicious, and swiftly prepared. The key to swift and healthy meal preparation for me has been Robin's 90-minute Sunday afternoon food prep model, a strategy that assures quick and delicious high quality meals throughout the week. I consider my leisurely Sunday afternoon food preparation time as self-indulgent "me" time, and enjoy chopping, baking, and sauteing against the backdrop of classical music and a glass of wine.  I also love the fact that a nutritious and delicious dinner is ready when I walk through the door every night of my work week.  It's as if I finally have that personal chef I have always coveted, only it's me!"  ---Patricia J., Nevada City
