The holiday season is well underway. How are you doing? If you felt “crazy busy” before December arrived you’re probably feeling crazy-crazy busy now. Ironically, in order to have the stamina to keep up and enjoy the season of light we need to do the complete opposite. We need to slow down and come to a full stop. We need to pause. Do you know …

Your Busy Mind is an Overwhelming Place to Live

Cara Bradley Crazy Busy Life, On The Verge 0 Comments

As seen on Oprah.com If you’re like most people, your mind is busy, filled with untamed emotions and unruly thoughts. Your attention is often anywhere but right here.

Cara Bradley Crazy Busy Life, Meditation, On The Verge, Truthtelling 2 Comments

As seen on Huffington Post Contrary to popular opinion, letting go doesn’t mean being lazy or passive. It doesn’t mean to dissociate or let the world pass you by.

If you need to solve a problem, go out for a walk.

Cara Bradley BodyMind Training, On The Verge, Yoga 10 Comments

My philosophy is if you need to solve a problem, go out for a walk. Get some fresh air and clear your mind, and you’re likely to return home with your answer. Move and breathe in rhythm for a prolonged period of time, and you’ll settle down. Move your body in rhythm, and you’ll calm your mind. Move your body …

Being a sassy /anti-anything standard kind of gal, I’d like to offer an alternative view on “giving thanks” this Thanksgiving. Instead of the obvious “give thanks for what you have,” I’m looking at it from a different perspective. I’m giving thanks for this year’s “NO’s.” Yep, you read that correctly.
