MASTERING ADULTHOOD

In her book called “Mastering Adulthood: Go Beyond Adulting to Become an Emotional Grown-up”, Dr. Lara E. Fielding teaches her readers how to navigate the emotional ups and downs of adulthood. By using easy to understand metaphors, Dr. Fielding introduces her young readers to the principles of cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness. If you know a young adult who is struggling to find their way, this book is a must!

A GRATITUDE ATTITUDE

Earlier this year, I was gifted “The Five-Minute Journal”, a structured daily journal with a set of morning and night-time questions allowing the owner to practice gratitude by reflecting on positive experiences and outcomes one is grateful for, and by setting mindful intentions for the day ahead. Cultivating gratitude has been associated with greater feelings of well-being, both psychological and physical (e.g. stress reduction, improved self-esteem, greater life satisfaction, improved sleep, and more). This journal was a great avenue for me to begin taking the time to “count my blessings” each day. However, we do not need any specific journal to begin cultivating our Gratitude Attitude! I encourage you to take out a paper and pen right now, and list 3 things you are grateful for today – no matter how big or small. Notice how you feel after this experience. How does your body feel? Was this helpful? What surprised you?
