Life Coaching from Martha Beck: Bright Spots
“Occasionally, people tell me that they don’t want to go to Africa because it’s a place of such terrible human suffering and poverty,” says life coach Martha Beck, who often hosts African retreats, “This always makes me think of Chip and Dan Heath’s book, Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard. In Switch, the Heaths describe how masters of change create miraculously positive results.”
“Right now, think of something about your life that is troubling you, something you want to change. It might be a child who is not doing well, a business that is in the red, an underwater mortgage. For the next five minutes, instead of worrying about this thing, find a bright spot in the situation. As you start to make the list, you’ll find the bright spots start to pop out more and your negative judgments fade.”

Get Relief for Sore Muscles
The way to achieving your workout goals is often fraught with obstacles such as injuries and over-strained muscles. Seeking relief for sore muscles often means giving up your workout routine, but it doesn’t have to.
While extreme exercise should be avoided, a little ”hair of the dog” for your muscles can help relieve the pain of a strenuous workout. Gentle stretching or a walk or jog would be ideal.
Nourishing the Soul
While our body needs the right nourishment to stay healthy, we often neglect feeding our soul. The soul is just as reliant on good “food” and just as liable to break down if we don’t protect if from “junk food.”
For example, one thing our body needs is a regular dose of joy. This means being goal-oriented in finding something you can truly celebrate every day, whether it’s making a healthy and delicious meal, accomplishing a fitness goal, or simply being inspired by beautiful scenery.
