ROGER HOUSDEN explains how DROPPING THE STRUGGLE can help us all love the life we already have
By Publicity Admin
How do we find meaning? How do we find love? How can we create the perfect life? The search for these answers often involves a lot of strife and struggle. It doesn’t matter how much success, love, or money we have — we always tend to long for something new and different. This is seemingly part of the human condition. But according to Roger Housden, author of Dropping the Struggle: Seven Ways to Love the Life You Have, the source of our longing is not outside of ourselves; it begins and ends inside our own hearts. We hope you’ll enjoy this short interview with Housden, in which he proposes that instead of seeking and searching externally, we try dropping the struggle and loving the life we currently have, right now.

JERRY LYNCH, author of LET THEM PLAY, on how mindfulness can help parents & coaches better support their kids, who just want to play
By Publicity Admin
Kids play sports because they love playing and having fun with their friends, but it can be very stressful for parents, who often sacrifice their weekends and thousands of dollars for camps, traveling to away games, and employing special coaches. Many parents are afraid that their kids are going to fail — in sports, in school, and in life — and they start to measure their own self-worth by how “successful” their kids are. But when we can just let our kids play and have fun, they get exactly what they need, which is the best kind of success. Jerry Lynch, author of Let Them Play: The Power & Joy of Mindful Sports Parenting, shares some tips on how mindfulness can help parents and coaches better support their kids.
