Just what we need .. laughter

World Laughter Day is coming up on May 3rd.  As the toll of the economy and unemployment continue to mount, this will be  a welcome distraction and hopefully the beginning of a new habit.  I have learned more and more about laughter yoga lately and am the facilitator for the Happiness Club here in Omaha.  I absolutely believe that surrounding yourself with support and supportive family and friends is essential to all of our well-being and overall health.

Please reach out and share your needs.  None of us are in this alone and truly believe that together, we really can live the life we want.  Hope to hearing you laughing!

Bob Mancuso, Jr., Director of the Omaha Health Expo, said, “The Omaha Health Expo is a unique community event that represents a multi-dimensional, complimentary view of health and wellness. The expo will have seminars on various topics both days. As an interactive event, each attendee will have the opportunity to speak with vendors – experts in their fields at the Omaha Civic Auditorium Mancuso Convention Center and Exhibition Hall – Free both days!”  **** Free to attend with a complimentary admission ticket – please let me know if you need one and I would be happy to share.

Mancuso said the Omaha Health Expo is about education. There have been many studies that relate physical fitness, positive attitude, and overall health to a positive impact on the bottom line. Associates can have lower levels of stress and improve their well-being and self-esteem. For the company, that can equate to enhanced productivity and lower health care costs.

India

I must gush. I just got back from a two-week trip to India with my dad to see family and be a bit of tourist.  I had not been since I was a little kid; crazy huh? I was to have gone during Christmas break my freshman year of college but ended up having foot surgery instead.  Believe me, it was not a good trade.

I have not done any travel outside of the US as an adult and it has been long overdue. I have forever said I wanted to go here or there, but have I? Not til now. I can safely say that I have been bitten by the travel bug.  India was awesome. I had an absolutely fantastic two weeks and want to go back as soon as I can.  At one point, my Uncle made a joke about my moving to Chandigarh.  Hmm, might have to give that one some more thought.

Why did I love it so much?  It’s not an easy answer in some ways.  But the simplest and most descriptive way I can describe my time there was that I felt very at home there.  Of course, my being half-Indian may have something to do with it, as I truly felt like I was in food heaven every single day. Other than one dinner in which I had some chicken, I ate vegetarian throughout and loved every minute of it. I would prefer to eat that way now – if only I could cook that well or had the desire to cook at all.

Or maybe it was being with my dad and uncle for the entire trip while also staying with various family members.  It’s a multi-generational world there and it’s great! You never feel alone but you can be alone if you want.  My dad thinks blood is thicker than water and although I still disagree with this, I can now more fully see his perspective.

Or maybe it was seeing the country in all its glory. It is a beautiful country and found myself loving just about everywhere we went and we went to quite a few places.

The Science of Numerology

I find all things like this (numerology, astrology) fascinating. I do not plan and live my life by this information, but as with anything, is another tool for me to use if I choose.   My Uncle N has tremendous knowledge about numerology, meditation, stress management and other topics I enjoy learning about so I asked him to share information about me, which he shared with me during my trip to India.  This led to me asking information about other members in the family, no less interesting!

I stumbled upon this page today and found it an interesting snapshot of numerology.  From this I learned that I … will find fulfillment through teaching others. By pursuing an ongoing quest for knowledge and then sharing your findings with your fellow man … be it through teaching, writing or some other means … you will bring joy into your own life. By following your destiny, your life should be an interesting life, one full of the exploration of science, mysteries, the occult, or other fascinating fields. Hmmm, I am a coach, trainer, and adjunct professor. I think I am pretty much living up to my vibrational number! How did you fare?
