Five Ways to Avoid Electronic Overwhelm

Five Ways to Avoid Electronic Overwhelm

Have you found yourself in the habit of constantly checking your phone, tablet, or computer for emails, texts, or other electronic communications? Do you respond to various chimes and ring tones with the same predictability as Pavlov's dog?

For better or worse, modern life has given us a new set of tools that can be wonderful servants, but terrible masters. Many of us can start to feel like we are "reacting" to our lives rather than creating them. Even worse, we can find ourselves distracted by the perceived demands of these virtual communication tools -- and miss out on connecting with the important people who are around us. If we want to live with more mindfulness and intention, we have to set some limits on our electronic tools and develop practices that keep us in the driver's seat.

5 Ways to Mind Your Microbiome

5 Ways to Mind Your Microbiome

If you're like me, you grew up thinking of all microorganisms as "germs" and something to be avoided at all costs. Wow, have things changed!

Among other things, micro-organisms help us digest food, synthesize vitamins, regulate glucose, and maintain a healthy immune system.

If you or your kids have grown up in the U.S.A. in the last thirty years or so, you may remember a Saturday morning educational program called Schoolhouse Rock. This series of animated musical films covered subjects such as math, English grammar, science, and history. One of the episodes that I remember was called "Elbow Room", and it was all about westward expansion in the U.S. The main idea of the song was about how our need for more space drove us to explore new areas and push our national boundaries farther. It is an idea that is very familiar in our culture: We crave spaciousness.

Pruning

Last week, as the weather became unseasonably warm, I found myself in a conversation with some plant-loving friends. Was it too late to prune? When was the best time? The answer, by a knowledgeable master gardener, was not simple – in short, "it depends."

As my friend shared some of his knowledge about appropriate pruning of different plant species, I was reminded about my experiences watching people pruning trees in northeastern Brazil.
