We also welcome (and invite) any feedback... Please let us know if something isn't working, a link is broken, or is missing, a typo, etc. To send us your comments, hover over the "This and That" item in every page's top menu, and click on the "Contact Us" button.

Also please use this Amazon link if you shop at Amazon. Your cost is the same but we receive approx. 5% in commission. We encourage you to support our work in this manner that is cost-free for you. And of course, any donations are always welcomed and appreciated (and useful).

Wishing you enjoyable insightful reading, and of course a wonder-full, joy-full, and loving week.

Using Intentions to Reset Your Mindset in Ten Minutes a Day

Written by Melissa Escaro.

Using Intentions to Reset Your Mindset in Ten Minutes a DayWhen I first started using intentions, I did so because they felt good. They were positive, uplifting, and shifted my perspective to one that was more open. It wasn’t until I started exploring neurolinguistic programing as part of my life-coaching education that I realized what I was doing was conditioning these beliefs to who I was.

Discover Inspiring Articles in Living in Harmony:

The "Living in Harmony" section includes articles on Health & Well-Being, Home & Garden, Pets, Leisure & Creativity, Finance & Careers, and Science and Technology.

Discover Insightful Articles in Personal Development:

The "Personal Development" area covers Attitude Adjustments (which includes Fear, Anger, Gratitude, Forgiveness), Intuition & Awareness, Relationships & Parenting, Spirituality & Mindfulness (included Meditation), and Happiness & Success.

Discover Informational Articles in Social & Political:

"Social & Political" covers topics that affect us personally yet deal with a more "societal" or "political" sphere. This area covers Environment & Climate, Democracy, Justice, Inequality, Economy, and more. These topics affect us on a personal and planetary level and are thus very relevant for our communal journey on Planet Earth.
