Silly Walking -- No Joke!

Our next mindfulness task is called silly walking.  We recommend walking in a silly way several times a day; ESPECIALLY when you notice that you've fallen into a negative mind state.

No, really -- We're serious...

It's amazing how much there is to learn, here.

Does silly walking for 10 seconds really help alter a state of mind?  It only takes 10 seconds to find out!

Sometimes we want to practice just being with a negative mind state, so that we do not get caught in aversion to it.  It's also good, though, to know how to change a mind state quickly, and to cultivate the freedom to be able to do this.

Freedom in this context often means freedom from some version of the following thought: "My negative mind state is real/genuine/I like it; I don't want to be inauthentic and change my mind state; other people will think I'm weird, etc."  In other words, we would rather be right than be happy. 

The great news is that we CAN retrain ourselves to act from deeper values.  It just takes clear intention and a bit of effort.

How do you design a web page

How do you design a web page that pays? First off, you need to determine who will be getting the pay-off.
It could be you or the web visitor, or better yet, it could be both of you. For example, an informational web page will be valuable to a reader looking for information and valuable to you if you have affiliates, links to products, or other sites you want to promote. When building a web page or looking for a home based business, affiliate programs are worth considering because they add value to the site for the reader and can provide enough revenue for you to keep the site going.
