Happiness In The Workplace

Why would you even want to consider something as silly as Happiness in the workplace?

Well, where would you rather work?  In an environment that is full of chaos and stress or someplace where they focus on happiness?

Shawn Anchor has studied Happiness for over 20 years. He shares the benefits of focusing on happiness in the workplace.  Shawn travels the world speaking about why people are stressed and how to create a Happy workplace environment.

You can check out his book: The Happiness Advantage.

Think about these scenarios:

You know when you walk into an office or business what the feeling of the place is, right?

Are you greeted with a pleasant smile and greeting? Or a mumbling, “What do you want?”

I know I would rather be in a place where the staff is pleasant and helpful.

If you are a business owner, it would be extremely beneficial to discover what it takes for your staff to be happy, starting with yourself. The energy of a workplace really does start from the top.

Some benefits to a happy workplace include:

Happy people have less sick days

Happy people are more creative, Happiness stimulates the part of the brain that activates more creativity, which means you can come up with more solutions to issues.

Happy people create an environment where clients and customers want to come back.  Which means customer retention, which means more profit.

Everybody wins!

All it takes is one grumpy person to set a negative tone in an office or business.  Of course, it works the other way too.  It takes only one happy person to set a positive tone.

We all have an 8 foot energy ring around us. Which means, when you are in a room full of people everyone’s energy is overlapping each others.

You know how you feel when there is someone grumpy next to you.  You just want to move away from that person.

Why are some people happy and others grumpy?  It comes down to their thoughts and what they are focusing on throughout the day. Shawn goes into depth on how your thoughts affect your actions which affect your results.

So how do you change this mind set?

It’s called 3 Good Things Every Day.

Every day, preferably about the same time every day, write down 3 good things from that day.  If you have an issue finding 3 good things, think about your home/house, that you actually woke up and can walk, talk, and see. Think about what you are grateful for: food, clothes, car, the beauty of the outside, you have water, heat, AC, and anything that feels good.  After a while you’ll find it’s easy to come up with 3 good things. After time you’ll be writing down way more than 3.

Do this for 30 days and see how you mindset changes for the better.

Take this exercise to work and have your staff or fellow workers do this too.  You could be the one that changes the business world’s environment!

Is Fear Stopping You?

What dreams have you set aside due to fear? What is it you fear?

Many fear they will look foolish if they tell others about their dreams. The thoughts they have go something like this.

  • “What if I fail?”
  • “I don’t know how to get started.”
  • “I don’t have time.”
  • “I’m not smart enough.”
  • “Who am I to think I can do this?”
  • “Who am I to think others will listen to me?”

Sound familiar?

I can relate, because I’ve had all these thoughts. When I decided I wanted to share what I had learned over the years with others, I started doubting myself.

I was well respected in the business industry and I thought people would think I went off my rocker if I started talking about my feelings and what I did to overcome issues, going on in my life.

In 2005 I got out of my comfort zone and started distributing newsletters to fellow business associates. What kept be going was receiving thank yous and statements such as: “Thank you. This is just what I needed to hear today.”  That is when I knew I was making a difference in lives.

As I kept educating myself in ways to be the best person I could be, I shared what I learned. It became easier and easier for me to do this. As time went on I had to learn new ways to distribute my information.  If I had thought about the “How to” before I started, I probably would never have made that leap of faith.

What is it you want to do that FEAR has kept you from taking action? FEAR is just False Evidence Appearing to be Real. Share your dream with as many as possible. The more you share the dream, the quicker you will achieve it.

You might fail at first. That’s when you pick yourself up and keep on going. Be sure you do, whatever it is you are doing, differently. You know the saying: “Keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, is the definition of insanity”.

Forget about the “How To”.  Just go for it and the How To will show up.

This really does work!

Emotions and Dis-ease

I watched the movie Emotion 2.0 last night. I’ve seen it before, but it was a good reminder of how our thoughts cause the results we have in our life.

I believe, as the people in the movie, that deep seeded beliefs can cause our dis-eases.

Here’s the process:

  • We experience an event in life
  • We have an emotion about that event
  • We form a belief from that emotion
  • We create a habit from that belief.

According to some researchers, we create up to 85% of all our beliefs by the time we are 8 years old.

Think about this. We are operating as adults based on beliefs and patterns we created as a child.

These beliefs created from emotions can be so deep seeded to where they fester in your body. When they fester in your body dis-ease begins to set in.

The movie, Emotion 2.0, explains the science behind all these remarks.

You might be wondering, “How do I get rid of these negative emotions that are causing me all the stress and dis-ease in my life?”

You can! There are several suggestions in the movie. You can also contact me for an energy healing. I use a couple of different energy healing processes.  One is Reconnective Healing and the other is Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT.

What is CBD?

I presented this speech in my Toastmasters group.

I’ve become an affiliate with a CBD distribution company.

I didn’t even know what CBD was until a few months ago.

HempWorx, The company with whom I’m associated, distribute products  made from industrial hemp plants grown on Kentucky farms. Cannabidiol (CBD), comes from a cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential

In otherwords, it’s an oil extracted from the hemp plant that can be extremely beneficial for your health

CBD is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana or hemp plants. It does not produce intoxication; marijuana’s “high” is caused by the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

The information I’m presenting to you today is from Project CBD. Project CBD is a California-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the cannabis plant. They provide educational services for physicians, patients, industry professionals, and the general public.

First of all the Hemp plant and the marijuana plant are different.  Marijuana contains a much higher concentration of THC and used primarily for recreational use.

Hemp is used more for industrial purposes:  It’s even used for paper (the Declaration of Independence)) was on Hemp. The first American Flag was hemp. Back in the day, Hemp was used for rope on ships. The American colonies were actually required to grow hemp. You were actually jailed for NOT growing hemp.

Back in the early 1900’s when Big Pharma realized how beneficial CBD was for your health, they got it outlawed.

We have an Endocannabinoid System which has been dried up due to not receiving the cannabis like we did back in the day when people actually grew cannabis.

There is a great deal of research taking place – much by of it sponsored by the US Government – showing how the cannabis is extremely beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and systems. CBD has been demonstrating positive results in modulating many systems in the human brain and body, including chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.

Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities. Cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.

The main reason I joined Hempworx was because my friend, who introduced it to me, has Rheumatoid Arthritis. After being on the product for a short time, her life has changed. She can now get out of bed with east and do the physical tasks she used to be able to do before RA.

Then I saw a video another distributor had shared. Her grandmother had Alzheimer’s to the extent that she didn’t recognize her granddaughter and when she spoke it was all garble.  After only 6 weeks on the CBD oil, the grandmother recognized her granddaughter and was talking fluently!!!!!

I encourage you to investigate what the CBD oil can do for you. You can go to this site’s Hempworx page or go to: hempworx.com/cherih923 to view the products and more info


The Power of Reconnective Healing

A testimonial Shared by Sophia Alexiadi from Athens, Greece.
Sophia is a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner

Every healing story is unique and every single one of them is inspiring. This is the healing story of a woman suffering from liver cancer.

She was diagnosed with the dis-ease about seven months before her daughter contacted me. I was introduced to the daughter through a client of mine and a common friend. I will refer to this woman suffering from liver cancer as the mother.

The mother was also suffering from severe pain. She was taking strong medication for it. This actually was the reason that I was asked to facilitate Reconnective Healing for her: to ease her pain. The cancer was at an advanced stage and the doctors couldn’t find a way to help the recovery of the liver to a healthier level.

It was expected that the liver would not be healed, but they wanted very much that her pain would be reduced so that she could be released from this unbearable, as I was told daily pain. The mother was living in the countryside, and quite far from my Athens practice, so we scheduled a Reconnective Healing distance session.

I explained to the daughter that some of the sensations most commonly

observed by people who receive Reconnective Healing and that, however, they might feel these sensations or they might not. I did informed them about this so they understood that these sensations are natural to RH and nothing to be concerned or worried about when they feel them. Another thing I told them, amongst the other things I explained to her, was to be in a mindset of open expectancy.

The next morning after the first session I received a call from the daughter. Her mother described to her how, during the session, she felt her liver vibrate strongly for some minutes.

The pain subsided and, over the days that followed, there was a significant relief from the pain. Only a few days after this Reconnective Healing session, the daughter took her mother to the hospital to have medical exams done. The doctor told them that the results showed something that he was witnessing for the first time!

In an incredible way, the cancer had completely disappeared from the liver. The liver was healthy and functioning properly. As I recall, the daughter told me excitedly that, according to the doctor, to see a liver in such a great condition would have been something expected in someone at a much younger age!
The liver was not only healed, but it was also rejuvenated!
