Good Karma

Don't Be S.A.D., Brighten Your Mood with LIGHT!

Self Care Heals Past Wounds

Good Karma

This is a nice reading, but short. Enjoy! Some say this is from the Dalai Lama. All it takes is a few seconds to read and a lifetime to live.

Instructions for Life

  1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
  3. Follow the three R’s
    Respect for self,
    Respect for other’s and
    Responsibility for all your actions.
  4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
  5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
  6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
  7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  8. Spend some time alone every day.
  9. Open arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
  10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
  12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
  13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
  14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
  15. Be gentle with the earth.
  16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
  17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
  18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
  19. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

Don't Be S.A.D.

As seasons change, there is a shift in our "biological internal clocks" or circadian rhythm, due partly to these changes in sunlight patterns. This can cause our biological clocks to be out of "step" with our daily schedules. The most difficult months for SAD sufferers are January and February, and younger persons and women are at higher risk.

Symptoms Include:

  • regularly occurring symptoms of depression (excessive eating and sleeping, weight gain) during the fall or winter months.
  • full remission from depression occur in the spring and summer months.
  • symptoms have occurred in the past two years, with no nonseasonal depression episodes.
  • seasonal episodes substantially outnumber nonseasonal depression episodes.
  • a craving for sugary and/or starchy foods.


Phototherapy or bright light therapy has been shown to be helpful. For mild symptoms, spending time outdoors during the day or arranging homes and workplaces to receive more sunlight may be helpful. One study found that an hour's walk in winter sunlight was as effective as two and a half hours under bright artificial light.

Full Spectrum Lighting has made a difference for so many of my Lifestyle Coaching clients.  

You will find many options for this full spectrum lighting at Gaiam.


Self Care Heals Past Wounds

(An excerpt from Don't Weight, Eat Healthy and Get Moving NOW!)

An important psychological effect of your self-care is that you can FEEL that you have put yourself at the top of the list of those who receive your care and tending. When you tend yourself in your present day life, you help to heal yourself from past emotional wounds.

Everyone, no matter what kind of childhood they lived through (even an "ideal" childhood like those in storybooks), has had times when they were hurt because they experienced unmet needs. Some were lost in a crowd of a large family, some had parents who worked all the time, some just needed more attention, and some suffered abuse. These experiences result in emotional wounds. In your past, the person who was responsible to take care of you sometimes neglected or hurt you.

In the present YOU are responsible
to take care of you.

How you treat yourself NOW
will either continue the cycle of hurt,
or will promote the cycle of healing.

You have the choice to continue life with unmet needs and continue to hurt yourself, OR you can choose to tend and care for yourself and heal. You can heal past wounds by giving yourself what you need, by taking care of yourself.

Every time you nurture yourself
by meeting your basic needs,
you heal yourself a little bit from past neglects.

As you go through this process of building a healthy life for yourself, you are doing much more than improving your health. You are putting yourself at the top of the list of those who deserve your care. You are experiencing that you deserve your care. Good for you!
