In times of stress, life can become a veritable animal farm of unbalanced behaviors. If you're like me, the tendency under pressure is to scurry around in all directions like a squirrel trying to cross the road, eat like a pig, drink like a fish and consequently sleep badly or not enough, which causes tension in the body, leading to more scurrying, scarfing and guzzling. To counteract this behavior, the key is to stay centered in the present moment. Relax the body, deepen the breath, focus on the activity at hand. By so doing, we automatically slow down and gain consciousness of our behavior. Am I eating because I'm hungry or out of nervousness? Am I drinking in a relaxed and conscious way, or like an alcoholic sailor on shore leave? The key to maintaining good health in times of stress, is to create and maintain balance, which needs to be done by staying conscious on a moment to moment basis.
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!
