Have you ever wondered what is causing your stress? A slow buildup of everyday annoyances: a dead car battery, traffic jam, buttons that pop off your clothes as you are going to an important meeting. It’s the little things that get under your skin. Is it a tight schedule and seemingly insurmountable problems? Bills to pay, a boss to please, a colicky baby to pacify? Juggling many roles is a main cause of stress. Maybe it’s positive and negative life changes, from the joy of a wedding to the loss of a spouse, from the exhilaration of a job promotion to sadness at moving away from old friends.

Costa Rica, the country of Pura Vida (pure life) is known worldwide for its rich biodiversity and its magnificent natural environment that counts in each of its square kilometers. However, it is also a destination of some of the best beaches in the world, and this makes nature and beach many times converge in one place. One of such is the Manuel Antonio Beach. The Manuel Antonio National Park is a small biological island, within an area subject to different activities such as agriculture, livestock and a high tourist development. Part of the forest is in the process of regeneration since in the past it was the object of a selective extraction of timber trees. It is the wilderness area that receives the largest amount of national and international tourism and has an important attra
Let’s take a peak at some of the more common concepts above “love” relationships and see if they are myths or based upon reality. “All we need is love.” Myth or not? Since love does seem to be able to overcome anything and everything, at least on television and at the movies, this seems like a reality. However, truth is, making relationships work takes skill and hard work, regardless of the “love” factor. This is a myth here. Just like in fairy tales, once true love is found, people live happily ever after. Truth or myth? Granted couples can look into each other’s eyes and have those warm fuzzy feelings. However, truth is, all couples will have their ups and downs. “Happily ever after” seems to imply a perfect, problem-less relationship when in reality, those don’t exist.
This tip has been shared by one of our fans! Enjoy! If you have tried every diet on the planet, every exercise program from the latest fitness guru and repeatedly failed to achieve your weight loss goals you probably need a “check up from the neck up.” Successful weight loss doesn’t just happen. It took more than a few days to reach the point where you are at right now. Give yourself a break and expect it to take awhile before you see measurable results. Take a leap of faith and follow some basic principles. Begin with your “self talk.” This is the conversation that runs through your brain continuously. What kind of conversation do you have with your self talk? What type of negative self talk has kept you from reaching your goals in the past? If you had a chance to do
We all have ways of testing opportunities that enter our lives. Some of us just dive right in based on feeling, others walk straight into what they know is right by a gut feeling or intuition. And if it’s not gut feelings or emotions that are the tests of opportunities, it is the logical mind persuading us to ignore those feelings and emotions and test it with our reality of reason.

I come across two posters recently. The first one reads, "Cherish your dreams and aspirations. They are the blueprint of your achievements.” and the second poster says, “What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” WOW! We are inspired!
