How do you treat yourself on a moment by moment basis? Are you a loving parent to yourself or a brutal circus trainer with a bull-hook? An easy way to reduce stress and create joy is to simply check in throughout the day, asking the question: Am I being good to myself? If the answer is no, make a change! Start by taking a couple of deep breaths and relaxing your body. Take a break! Allow yourself to have a cup of tea and do nothing but stare out the window for 10 minutes. If you work from home, take a nap. If not, allow yourself an hour of "down time" when you get home from the job. Take a yoga class. Take a bubble bath. Spend an hour reading a good book before you cook dinner. Reward yourself frequently. A crossword puzzle after doing the housecleaning. Lunch at your favorite restaurant during a hectic day of Christmas shopping. Give yourself “free time” at the accomplishment of every task. Be kind to you!
Tiela Aldon Garnett...
...was born some time ago in Los Angeles, California...
Her father was a famous Motion Picture and Television director and her mother was an actress. There was a 31-year difference in their ages (her father was older) and she was their only child. If you want to know more about her early life and family, you'll have to read the book, but it's not out yet.
She has two children, Taylor and Chloe. Her children think she's "special." Taylor was born in Paris, France and Chloe was born in Brooklyn, New York. They're grown up now. Mostly. Both of her children are artists.
If you want to see what the author's family looks like, there are pictures under the "Photo Album" tab!
Tiela discovered her passion somewhat late in life, and that's okay. She's appreciating every minute of the journey, and isn't that the goal? She is happily committed to the process of her evolution, and has come to accept her humanness. She will joyously assist you in your process, too, because she's an International Life Coach!
She has stories, recipes, photographs, and occasionally wisdom to share.
Please enjoy her blogs about Paris, her Paris journal, and her stories, all under the "My Writing" tab, as well as her Paris Recipes!
