Weekend Musings: Breathing Exercises, Breakfast Dishes, Books & More!

Journaling is the key to a happy life. Now, why would I say that? Because journaling opens up your emotions, makes you spill your thoughts and feelings onto a page. Journaling helps you process trauma, bad feelings, good feelings and allows you to write down your hopes and dreams.

Journaling got me on my way to starting Honey Good many years ago, and I would have never thought writing down stories would turn into a wonderful business with beautiful readers from all over the world.

The reason why I bring this up today is that the world is in turmoil and there is so much bad news. I know many people are upset and stressed, and it’s hard to remain positive. That is why I will suggest journaling time and time again. Trust me, it will help. Get out all of your bad feelings and make sure to also write your good feelings, too. Where there is dark, there is also light. Please let me know if you try it.

Now, on to my Weekend Musings…

3-minute Mindful Breathing Meditation

Did you know that one of the reasons we have so much anxiety and so much stress, is that we forget to breathe? Yes, breathe. That is why so many times when we are scared, people tell us to take deep breaths. Breathing is the way to calm the body, the mind, the soul, and the heart.

However, a lot of times breathing is not easy. We get caught up in our daily lives and the stress of work and the current world. Our brain forgets we need to breathe at a nice even pace and take a moment to stop and unwind. If this resonates with you, check out this great 3-minute mindful breathing meditation that I found on YouTube. It will help!

End of Summer Book Recommendations

I know that all of us love a good book. In fact, our GRANDwomen with Moxie! Facebook group is starting a book club soon. So if you are interested, make sure you head on over to Facebook and join. We are a wonderful group of women who would love to have you join us! As well, every month we compile a list of member recommended books and share it with the group. It’s wonderful.

Speaking of those book recommendations, last week I put together a list of end of summer book recommendations that included books I adore, the books recommended by GRANDwomen group members, and even some books written by myself and HG team members. It’s a great list with so many wonderful types of novels. Make sure to check it out!

Delish Breakfast Dishes

Do you love cooking breakfast every morning or maybe just on the weekends? If you’re like me, you cook your partner breakfast every morning with a lovely cup of coffee. And, if you do love breakfast, I’m sure you’re always looking for new breakfast recipes or things to try. Not many people love eating the same exact thing every day! Most of us enjoy at least a little bit of variety.

So, darling, I went on a YouTube adventure to find some breakfast recipes to share with you. Below you’ll find a video of Caulifower Breakfast Muffins…yum! But if you CLICK HERE, you’ll find a bunch of videos with a variety of dishes for you to try. Happy cooking and eating!

  1. I journal every day to my dead husband. I write as though he were still here and talk to him. I tell him about my day, share the good in my life but, most importantly, I tell him about my fears and anxieties and how much I miss him. I try to think of what he would say to me. He was my rock and could always make me feel better. When I imagine his response, I write it down. It never fails to calm me down. I lost my husband on March 1 of this year and began “writing” to him the following week. I think I’ll keep this habit for the rest of my life.

    1. I know how you are feeling. I am glad you found an outlet. You will be amazed at how healing and self reflective journaling becomes. Please do keep the habit the rest of your life and maybe over time you will add other interesting observations. Sending my condolences. Warmly, Honey
