Kara-Leah presents Committing to a Forty Day Sadhana of Sodarshan Chakra Kriya posted at Prana Flow NZ, saying, "In yoga, the commitment to a specific daily practice is sometimes called “sadhana” – or spiritual practice.

Aparna presents Self esteem-Why is it so important? posted at Beauty and Personality Grooming, saying, "Go and stand in front of a mirror. What kind of image do you see? Do you see yourself as a confident, healthy, pleasing person? Do you love yourself? Do you accept yourself fully with all your plus and minus points? Are you happy with your self image? If you are not, it means you do not have adequate self-esteem (self-respect). Besides good health and other basic needs of life, self-esteem is a requisite to keep you happy. Self-esteem is also important for maintaining good mental health. It is one of the major ingredients in the formula for success. When self-esteem is very low, it is difficult for you to achieve success. This is because you waste a lot of time worrying about what people think of you, worrying about your real or imaginary weaknesses, the mistakes committed in the past and what future has in store for you"
Chris Edgar presents What To Do When Affirmations "Don’t Work" posted at Purpose Power Coaching, saying, "Sometimes, when we say an affirmation, we don’t get the inspired feeling we’re looking for — instead, we feel angry or despondent. This is the kind of experience that often leads people to think that affirmations “don’t work.” In this article, I’m going to talk about the reasons we may find ourselves “rejecting” the affirmations we use, and how we can reframe our affirmations to find the encouragement and empowerment we’re looking for."
Peter Murphy presents How to Stay Motivated In The Face Of Office Politics posted at Get Motivated Stay Motivated.
Heather presents Turn resolutions into real change. posted at 101 Reasons to be Yourself, saying, "How are those New Year’s resolutions coming along? Good, Bad, Ugly? Why not try something different – something with a more uplifting connotation? For example, make your resolution for the year along the lines of: "I am making positive changes in 2009." "I am developing multiple streams of income." "I am healthy and fit this year." Focus on that as the big picture for the year, then get started on some specific goals and objectives, seeing yourself actually having accomplished those goals. Really, how many people quit smoking, lose 20 pounds or make a million dollars because of a New Year’s resolution?"
Phylameana presents Becoming More Mindful – Embracing Single-Tasking in 2009 posted at About Holistic Healing, saying, "Multi-tasking certainly comes easier for some people than others. But I’m not so sure that multi-tasking is the best course of action for anyone."

Ray Burton presents Does The Law of Attraction Actually Work? posted at Raymond L. Burton – The Happy Soul, saying, "How does this Law Of Attraction all work? Actually, does it even work?

Ross presents Are Natural Cleaning Products Worth It? posted at Energise for Life, saying, "Every day we face a barrage of environmental toxins that can invade our body through the air we breath, our skin and the substances we ingest.
