Mid-Week Balance: 20 February 2013

Hi everyone–it feels like it has been ages since I sat down and put together a post.  In actuality, it’s only been two weeks, but those two weeks have been full of germs at home and a slam-packed schedule at the office.  Hopefully, I have had my major illness for the year and now I can move on.  I am back with a full line-up of MWB good stuff.  Let’s dive right in:

I love my flower pictures--this time of year they remind me that spring will be back!

Good Stuff to Fuel Your Week:

In my newsletter this week, I talked about the importance of sleep for good mental and physical health.  So I was thrilled to find this post by Glynis Sherwood, MA that explores both the value of sleep and some tips for getting good sleep.

After you get your good night’s sleep, Laura Schenck, MA offers five suggestions to help you get your morning started right--the foundation to an excellent day.

One issue that many of us struggle with is a loving and peaceful relationship with food.  Here are a few suggestions for bringing peace to that relationship from Dr. Elisha Goldstein and author Brandt Passalacqua.

This post from guest blogger Tayla Anne at the Voice in Recovery blog is a powerful one.  She talks about her own recovery from anorexia, but I really appreciate her point that recovery of all types is a journey and a process–not something that you achieve perfection in.

In the same way, I think that Marie Ennis O’Connor’s post about returning to work after cancer has valuable suggestions for cancer patients and folks facing other serious medical conditions.

And finally, I have lots of clients who struggle with the idea of self-care on a day-to-day basis.  So, I love this post from Anna Guest-Jelley in which she shares her own daily self-care routine–and some reminders that perfection is not our goal!

That’s it for me this week.  As always, please feel free to share your own thoughts and favorites in the comments.
