“No individual can ever truly be a healthy and whole individual after loss without coming to terms with their loss and understanding the magnitude of that loss while also understanding that they must still live for the future.”
– Valerie Orr
FOR THE MIND
Embracing uncertainty can actually be a positive thing — it means being open to new experiences and opportunities. Sure, it can be scary not knowing what’s around the corner, but think of it this way: when you embrace uncertainty, you give yourself the chance to discover something amazing that you never would have found if you played it safe. And let’s be real, playing it safe can get pretty boring.
Here are some steps you can take to be more comfortable with embracing uncertainty:
First, try reframing uncertainty as a chance for growth and learning. Instead of focusing on the potential risks and negative outcomes, focus on the possibilities and opportunities for personal development.
Second, practice being comfortable with the unknown by exposing yourself to new experiences and challenges. Start small — try a new food or take a different route to work. As you become more comfortable with uncertainty, gradually push yourself to take bigger risks.
Third, learn to tolerate discomfort. Uncertainty often comes with feelings of discomfort and anxiety, but by learning to sit with these emotions instead of avoiding them, you can develop greater resilience and confidence in your ability to handle the unknown.
So, my fearless friend, don’t be afraid to embrace uncertainty. Take a deep breath, remind yourself of the potential rewards, and take small steps to build your comfort level. Who knows where your journey may take you?

It’s National Napping Day!
It’s time to say goodbye to Daylight Savings Time and recharge your batteries with National Napping Day!This annual holiday is the perfect excuse to take a break from your hectic schedule and get some much needed shut-eye. Taking regular naps has been linked to increased alertness, better concentration, improved memory, and higher productivity — all great benefits of catching up on some Zzzs.
However, it’s important to understand that not all naps are created equal. When it comes to getting quality sleep during the day, there are a few things people often overlook or do wrong.
If your nap lasts too long or is too late in the day it can disrupt your sleep cycle, making it difficult for you to get a good night’s rest when you need it. So if you’re planning to nap make sure you stick to no more than 20-30 minutes and do it earlier in the afternoon.
For National Napping Day, remember that quality trumps quantity — so find yourself a comfortable spot where you can relax undisturbed and enjoy a refreshing snooze!
