Covid isolation had brought many changes. As we return to work in person and businesses and schools reopen, everyday life will be changed. Shorter tempers, greater anxiety, Covid PTSD, depression, anger, an increased demand for mental health services, and mean or rude behavior are some of the fall out of being in our Covid cave. Join us at Joyful Living at 9 am central time on Monday as we discuss what’s happening and what you can do.

Join me tomorrow at 5PM Eastern for an hour of Meaningful Money. We will share many different ways to save money, some of which require a change in a habit. But the reward of changing that habit is maintaining or gaining control over your spending!

Assertive conversation means expressing your point of view in a way that is clear and direct, while still respecting others. Communicating in an assertive manner can help you to: minimise conflict and control anger. Passivity allows others to decide for you. Aggressiveness  decides for others. Being assertive is you deciding for you. It’s finding balance in the middle. Join us as we talk and learn about assertive conversation at Joyful Living on Monday at 9am central.

It's a safe bet to say that everyone would like to be happy. No one wants to go through life feeling sad or like they are just getting by. You can't just choose happiness once and call it good. If you want to be happy it is something that you will have to work on. "There is no path to happiness; happiness is the path." Buddha. Join us at Joyful Living on Monday at 9 central as we discuss choosing happiness and some steps to get us on the happiness path.

September is self care awareness month. Join us at Joyful living as we discuss self care and self esteem. 9 am central time Monday. Your level of self-esteem and your boundaries are closely related. Having personal boundaries outlines to others that you don’t accept some behaviors. You demonstrate that you are in charge of how people treat you. You show that you have responsibility over your life. You matter. Setting boundaries is a huge self-care step and one that demonstrates your self-esteem. Join us and bring your questions, comments and concerns. Everyone welcome.

Shelley D, Wisdo mentor here. Codependency is our topic at Joyful Living this week. Everyone is welcome to join our discussion. Codependency isn’t considered a mental health condition, and experts have yet to outline specific diagnostic criteria for it. There is, however, some general agreement on what codependency usually involves and how self-care can help. Joyful Living(in communities) Monday 9 am central.

You wouldn't think that subconscious money beliefs would lead to behavior that keeps us from seeking and living our purpose, but it does. Why is that? And how can we work to shift things?
