10 Reasons to Embrace Your Age

We are no strangers to the fact that aging comes with many pros and cons. It’s best to remember that age is just a number and that’s it. Most important, do not waste time on the demise of your youth. We can reframe things differently if we choose. We can choose to embrace aging with an understanding that we have probably spent the first 50 years in a hurry with little time, wisdom, or awareness about what it all meant. Because during those years, our focus was on function not appreciation. So next time you notice yet another spot or new wrinkle, ignore it.
Instead, focus on the many positives associated with moving into a brand new, and potentially very rich, phase of your life.

Self-Reflection in the New Year

a special feature from Bonnie Compton, Parent Coach & Child /Adolescent Therapist*
It’s a new year and hopefully a chance for a clean slate. Does that thought excite or terrify you? Often when we think of the New Year, we think of New Year Resolutions—commitments we make to better ourselves. However, there can be heaviness associated with New Year’s resolutions. You tell yourself, “I’m going to lose 10 pounds” (while your internal dialogue says: “Why do I continue to eat mindlessly, grabbing that last piece of cake…what is wrong with me?”)— or, “I’m going to exercise 5 days per week.” (Internal dialogue says: “I said the same thing last year and that didn’t happen! This year, I’m really going to do it…I can’t let myself fail this time!”)

Here’s two simple and mindful suggestions we have for you, and yes, you are worth it.
