I lived most of my life following the “shoulds”. What my parents told me I should do. How I should be as an East-Indian girl and then a woman. How a daughter-in-law should be. And so forth. All handed down from their parents and parents before. No blame. Simply understanding, awareness and growth. I went […]

The Exhaustion from Living up to All the “Shoulds”

Research from the Institute of HeartMath found that when 3 participants (out of 4 who were seated together) were trained and used a HeartMath technique – their level of coherence affected the 4th persons coherence (the one who was NOT using the HeartMath technique!). Coherence is an optimal state of functioning and is the key […]
