Slide1 l.jpg

Sometimes in life we can feel a little blue,

Slide2 l.jpg

or like we just want to put our

head in our hands,

Slide3 l.jpg

or worse, sometimes life can just seem


Slide4 l.jpg

Maybe we are upset because we had a fight with our significant other,

Slide5 l.jpg

or are not getting along with our in-laws.

Slide6 l.jpg

Maybe it’s the stress associated with our job,

Slide7 l.jpg

like trying to figure out that new

computer program,

Slide8 l.jpg

or the crazy supervisor

that’s always on our back.

Slide9 l.jpg

Or perhaps it’s that promotion

we just can’t seem to ever get,

Slide10 l.jpg

or something simple like getting behind in

our paperwork,

Slide11 l.jpg

all of which makes us feel like just crawling

under our desk.

Slide12 l.jpg

Maybe it’s the unrealistic expectations we receive about how we should look

Slide13 l.jpg

or that last few pounds

we just can’t seem to take off,

Slide14 l.jpg

which leads us to be disappointed

with what we see in the mirror.

Slide15 l.jpg

Or perhaps it’s disappointment about how our bodies change as we age.

Slide16 l.jpg

Ok, extreme disappointment about how our bodies change as we age.

Slide17 l.jpg

Sometimes it’s something small, like the irritation from being put on hold a really long time,

Slide19 l.jpg

or having a bad hair day.

Slide20 l.jpg

or a really bad hair day.

Slide21 l.jpg

Ok, it’s time to sue our hairdresser.

Slide22 l.jpg

Sometimes it’s something bigger like getting

negative feedback about ourselves

that’s hard to hear,

Slide23 l.jpg

which can lead to the feeling of being


Slide24 l.jpg


Slide25 l.jpg

or like we just don’t measure up.

Slide29 l.jpg

which can make us feel very afraid,

Slide30 l.jpg

and wishing we could just blend

into the background to hide.

Slide31 l.jpg

Or perhaps it’s unrealistic expectations from others that we have unlimited energy

to do everything,

Slide32 l.jpg

be able to juggle all the balls,

Slide33 l.jpg

or solve the world’s problems,

Slide34 l.jpg

while internally we feel like

we are ready to scream,

Slide36 l.jpg

Sometimes to cope with life’s pressures we just need to take a step back and re-evaluate,

Slide37 l.jpg

put our problems in perspective,

Slide38 l.jpg

and spend a little quality time on some of the simple pleasures of life.

Slide39 l.jpg

For some people that may be enjoying a

favorite morning beverage all alone,

Slide40 l.jpg

or sharing a cup of tea with a friend.

Slide41 l.jpg

For others it’s a favorite adult beverage.

Slide42 l.jpg

Just as long as they don’t go too

over the top and regret it the next morning,

Slide43 l.jpg

and leave incriminating evidence

that can embarrass them later.

Slide44 l.jpg

A better alternative might be a trip to the grocery store,

Slide45 l.jpg

to stock up on some healthy snacks,

Slide46 l.jpg

like salad,

Slide47 l.jpg


Slide48 l.jpg

more salad,

Slide49 l.jpg

more vegetables,

Slide50 l.jpg

and more salad.

Slide51 l.jpg

Ok, every now and then you’ve got to treat yourself. There is only so much salad and

vegetables you can take.

Slide52 l.jpg

Just don’t be afraid to try new health foods.

Slide53 l.jpg

Be brave….get beyond the first bite.

Slide54 l.jpg

Try a little more,

Slide55 l.jpg

and eventually you might grow to love it.

Slide56 l.jpg

Some people might make the meal special by breaking out the good dishes,

Slide57 l.jpg

or dressing up the table with some flowers.

Slide58 l.jpg

Of course for some people, nothing beats the midnight raid of the fridge,

Slide59 l.jpg

for a midnight snack,

Slide60 l.jpg

leading to a carbohydrate induced

deep slumber.

Slide61 l.jpg

Just don’t forget to combine it with fiber!

Slide62 l.jpg

For others a treat might be enjoying some good exercise, so they go digging in their closet,

Slide63 l.jpg

and break out their favorite tennis shoes,

Slide64 l.jpg

and get out to play some football,

Slide65 l.jpg


Slide66 l.jpg


Slide67 l.jpg

catch with a friend,

Slide68 l.jpg

or an indoor exercise like weightlifting,

Slide69 l.jpg

or yoga.

Slide70 l.jpg

Others may enjoy doing something that

reminds them of their childhood,

like playing in the park,

Slide71 l.jpg

jumping in a pile leaves,

Slide72 l.jpg

blowing soap bubbles,

Slide73 l.jpg

playing with toys,

Slide74 l.jpg

or taking a bath with

a yellow rubber duckie.

Slide75 l.jpg

Others enjoy snuggling under the covers,

Slide76 l.jpg

with a teddy.

Slide77 l.jpg

Or better yet, a big teddie.

Slide78 l.jpg

Others unwind by taking a trip to the spa,

Slide79 l.jpg

which may include a sauna and soak,

Slide80 l.jpg

followed by a relaxing massage,

Slide81 l.jpg

and assorted other pampering,

Slide82 l.jpg

which leaves them feeling like royalty.

Slide83 l.jpg

Others unwind by taking a vacation

Slide84 l.jpg

to some exotic location,

Slide85 l.jpg

or a trip to the beach,

Slide86 l.jpg

to soak up “the rays”.

Slide87 l.jpg

Just don’t forget the sun protection,

and to drink plenty of water,

Slide88 l.jpg

or retreat indoors if it gets too hot!

Slide89 l.jpg

Others may enjoy a trip to

the opposite climate,

Slide90 l.jpg

like the mountains,

Slide91 l.jpg

to play in the snow,

Slide92 l.jpg

or get to be a “snow bunny”

by a warm fire.

Slide93 l.jpg

Some people just enjoy their own back yard,

Slide94 l.jpg

or activities like the pleasures of


Slide95 l.jpg

watching things grow,

Slide96 l.jpg

or just the satisfaction of

pulling the weeds!

Slide97 l.jpg

Others may enjoy getting dressed up,

Slide98 l.jpg

having their hair done,

Slide99 l.jpg

and going out with the girls.

Slide100 l.jpg

While others enjoy a relaxing drive alone.

Slide101 l.jpg

For others, their home is their castle,

Slide102 l.jpg

where they can listen to some music,

Slide103 l.jpg

play a favorite video game,

Slide104 l.jpg

or grab the remote,

Slide105 l.jpg

a big bowl of popcorn,

Slide106 l.jpg

and cuddle up in bed with a favorite movie.

Slide107 l.jpg

For some, happiness is spending time

with family,

Slide108 l.jpg

getting a reassuring hug,

Slide109 l.jpg

or a kiss.

Slide110 l.jpg

For others, happiness comes from

being struck by cupid’s arrow,

Slide111 l.jpg

and finding that special someone,

Slide112 l.jpg

with whom you can enjoy a little cuddle,

Slide113 l.jpg

or perhaps playing dress up,

Slide114 l.jpg

donning something adventurous,

Slide115 l.jpg

and having a playful roll in the hay.

Slide116 l.jpg

For others with more difficult problems, they might find it helpful to visit a

professional therapist,

Slide117 l.jpg

talk it out,

Slide118 l.jpg

or have a good cry.

Slide119 l.jpg

Others may prefer a more private approach, and opt to read a self help book at home.

Slide120 l.jpg

Sometimes the very best medicine in life is

having a good laugh at yourself,

Slide121 l.jpg

or sharing a laugh with a friend.

Slide122 l.jpg

Try to remember, even though we seem

different, we are really all alike,

Slide123 l.jpg

and we are all in this together.

Slide124 l.jpg

No matter how challenging life’s obstacles may seem, we can choose to overcome them.

Slide125 l.jpg

With the right perspective,

we can feel on top of the world,

Slide126 l.jpg

ready to jump with joy,

Slide127 l.jpg

and relish all the little treasures

life has to offer.

Slide128 l.jpg

So when life seems difficult,

remember to take some time to slow down,

Slide129 l.jpg

smell the roses,

Slide130 l.jpg


Slide131 l.jpg


Slide132 l.jpg

and accept who you are,

Slide133 l.jpg

no matter how silly.

Slide134 l.jpg

If you learn to love yourself,

Slide135 l.jpg

love others,

Slide136 l.jpg

and accept all the strange and unusual

experiences life has to offer,

Slide137 l.jpg

you’ll find true peace and happiness!
