    April 28, 2014 11541 Views

    We can all choose to live a less stressful life. But how do we make the right choices to get rid of stress? Follow these 5 tips to strip away your stress so you can live life blissfully!

    1. Slow down to go faster.

    By slowing down we can take time to discover our purpose and choose to fully live it each and every day…Making a move to the right hand lane may make you think things and life are going to pass you by. Yet, choosing to slow down lets us enjoy the road along the way, it can supercharge us to reach our ultimate destination.

    This stress-relief tip is from Stress Is a Choice by David Zerfoss.

    2. Set clear goals.

    When you decide upon a goal, you override your failure mechanism and change the direction of your life. You go from being a rudder, drifting with the tide, to becoming a ship with a rudder, a compass and a clear destination, sailing straight toward your destination.

    This stress-relief tip is from The Power of Discipline by Brian Tracy.

    3. Schedule your priorities.

    Life can become very full very fast. If we first block off time for who and what is most important in our lives, it can actually free us up to really focus on all the rest.

    This stress-relief tip is from Stress is a Choice by David Zerfoss.

    4. Squeeze the most out of your day.

    Write down the six most important things you need to accomplish. Not only will you start tomorrow ready to go, but subconsciously, you'll also be working on those six projects while you sleep.

    This stress-relief tip is from Stuck on Stop by Vicki Hitzges.

    5. Visualize yourself as you want to be.

    There is a special way that you can accelerate your progress toward becoming the highly productive, effective, efficient person that you want to be. It consists of your thinking continually about the rewards and benefits of being an action-oriented, fast-moving, focused person. See yourself as the kind of person who gets important jobs done quickly and well on a consistent basis.

    This stress-relief tip is from Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy.

    Celebrate Mom! 3 Awesome Gift Ideas for Mother's Day

    April 22, 2014 3300 Views

    We like to celebrate Mom every day, but Mother's Day is our chance to recognize the inspiration and wisdom she has provided us. Here are some of our favorite gift ideas to show Mom how important she is.

    1. Flowers for now, flowers for later.

    A bouquet of your mom's favorite flowers is always a great go-to gift for Mother's Day! But we also like to give Mom something special that she can keep forever. In Heart of a Mother, the beauty of a mother's love for her child is shown through different types of flowers (and includes wonderful illustrations). Combine a book with a floral arrangement and you've got a beautiful gift Mom can enjoy today and cherish forever.

    2. A keepsake note that Mom will want to display.

    Write a special note in a book and use it as a card for Mother's Day. Mom won't want to tuck her book away with all her other cards, and every time she sees it, she'll have a reminder of how much you love her. Our latest book, Love Blooms in a Mother's Heart, is a gift that illustrates and says it all! Bonus—the author, Kathy Davis, is a leading gift card designer.

    3. Let me count the ways.

    Sometimes it's hard to explain why your mom is so important to you. A great way to show your love can be as easy as creating a list of the special things she has done for you. Find 100 reasons why moms are so important in the bestselling books Why a Daughter Needs a Mom and Why a Son Needs a Mom. You can add your own stories and special memories you have with your mom to make this a personal gift from the heart.

    Mother's Day is that one special day that is all about Mom. Even though she'll love anything you get her because it's from you, a thoughtful gift from your heart is always the best way to show Mom how much she means. Don't forget to share your favorite Mother's Day gift ideas in the comments!
