I came across this gorgeous interview with Dr Barbara Fredrickson today. It's one that gives us hope in building on our resources to establish better choices and responses to the challenges we all face in life. This interview is 12 minutes and Barbara's genuine, natural beauty absolutely resonate throughout.
Dr Barbara Fredrickson is Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Award-winning Director of the PEP Lab at the University of North Carolina. Her research reveals how micro-moments of love and other forms of positivity nourish your health, wisdom, and longevity. She has twice been invited to brief His Holiness the Dalai Lama on her research (link found via mindfulness4mothers.com Thanks Kellie!)

Loving this ABC series at the moment, Redesign My Brain, with Todd Sampson. It gives us all a little hope in dealing with our weaknesses.
My lovely friend BM just left a link for home made juggling balls in the comments. I thought I would share for all those interested in increasing their brain capacity. Thanks BM!

I listened to this interview with Sylvia Boorstein while cooking dinner on Sunday night. It is a beautifully wise discussion on 'What we Nurture.' I especially loved the tale about the two wolves, it really makes you think about which one you feed. I've been recalling snippets of the interview ever since. Sylvia has such a gentle and wise way but her words have a powerful impact (**another clip which explains & expands on Syvlia's 'wolves story' beautifully is this one by neuropsychologist Rick Hanson).
Slowly, after our big trip I can feel myself creeping back into the swing of things. Enjoy x
