WORDS FOR TODAY: Write it down!! Early in the day, write 2 ways you want your day to be: What you want to DO; and how you want to FEEL when you’re doing it. Don’t just think it, write it down! Writing prompts the brain to prioritize and collect information to boost your chances of getting to your goals. If you REALLY want it, write it down! ( With thanks to Joseph Bennett)

LESSONS FROM MR. ROGERS Lesson #5 Be Authentic. Mr. Rogers seemed at ease with who he is, didn’t apologize or explain himself, just went about being a good human being. He always opened his TV show by finding his cardigan sweater, and putting it on. As he sat down to change into comfy house shoes, he explained what he’d be telling us about that day. Comfy shoes and sweater said he wanted to relax and explore something we’d all be interested in. We can relax when we know and understand ourselves. He was content with simple ways to express his best traits. Feeling real and relaxed helps us share kindness and love with lots of others around us.

LESSONS FROM MR. ROGERS Lesson #4 Be kind and generous. There were so many ways Mr. Rogers shared kindness. He gave attention to people who otherwise would have been overlooked. Kids with disabilities were regularly featured on his TV show. In the movie, when he visited a dying person, Mr. Rogers brought a pie for the family. When we’re kind and generous with our time and resources, we become more open to others, curious, playful and creative. Sharing ourselves invites others to share as well.

LESSONS FROM MR. ROGERS Lesson #3: Thank people a lot. Even people you could be really upset about. The big example from the movie is about an unruly 3-4 year old boy who carried a play sword. The kid was whacking Mr. Rogers’ legs repeatedly, while Fred talked to the child’s Mom. After a few painful strikes with the play sword, Mr. Rogers leaned down and asked the boy if he would show him the sword. After admiring it, Mr. Rogers thanked the boy for showing it to him. Within seconds, the boy walked away smiling, carrying the sword appropriately. Just a little “thank you” can do wonders.

LESSONS FROM MR. ROGERS Lesson #2: Practice Wellness. If you saw the movie (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), you know how devoted Mr. Rogers was to his wellness routine. Here’s what it involved: morning meditation, daily lap swims, evening prayers, a plant-based diet. What I noticed: it’s a daily thing, done regularly, consistently, mindfully. Paying attention to our total being takes focus on the mind, body, and spirit. What have I observed in myself and in clients? The more we practice total wellness regularly, the more spirited, grateful and optimistic we feel.

LESSONS FROM MR. ROGERS (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood)
I saw the Mr. Rogers movie recently, and I came away with the feeling that I wanted to be a better person, to understand what about Fred had impressed me. Here’s one kind of “better person” trait I’d like to develop a bit more. Maybe you would too?
Lesson #1: Listen without judgement. I noticed that he held eye contact and paid close attention to the other person. He didn’t judge or contradict. This movie features the true story of an Esquire magazine reporter, Tom Junod, played by Matthew Rhys. When Junod first showed up to interview Mr. Rogers for the magazine, he was bruised and beaten up from a fight. Mr. Rogers asked Tom what had happened to him, and listened without criticizing or judging. Empathy and concern were evident. He didn’t interrupt Tom’s story. He just listened.

Who ISN'T worried, anxious, nervous, distracted by your concerns these days?
Because YOU are a "Do- It -Yourself" Person,
Here's a good mental habit to ease your fears:
Remind yourself of this advice: "Let's just take care of today."
WHEW! My load of concerns just lifted.
This advice comes from a Buddhist monk, in response to a litany of complaints I brought before him. He said these simple words only: LET'S JUST TAKE CARE OF TODAY.
