Compassionate Boundaries: How to Say No with Heart

How to get your needs met in a way that considers all parties with kindness.

Do you have a pattern of saying yes to others, but then feeling resentful later on? Do you believe that you must come to the aid of others and often give to get?

You are not alone.

Many of us have developed a belief that we must be nice, pleasing, or helpful to the exclusion of our own feelings and needs in order to be worthy of love or appreciation. This belief is, of course, not true and furthermore an impossible goal to meet. When we give to get, we can often end up feeling angry and as a result we don’t create healthy boundaries at home and work. Read full article >

How to Tame the Wanting Mind

How to Tame the Wanting Mind

What feels like “enough”? Carley Hauck explores how to build a healthier relationship to the things we’re attached to—and the things we desire.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you prayed for it, you saved up for it, and/or you worked really hard for it? Then once you got it, you thought, “Hmmm, this wasn’t as great as I built it up to be and now I want something else”?

The mind always yearns for something more. It might desire a new experience, a pleasant feeling or sensation, or crave the acquisition of something that it feels will bring pleasure. However, the experiences, sensations, and/or pleasant feelings that we strive for don’t last and we often find ourselves wanting more. The one thing we can count on in this life is impermanence and continuous change. Read full article >

“I have never been more in love with my life!
The time I spent with you and the other Blooming Lotuses in Mexico was a life altering experience for me. I was emotionally stuck and spiritually bankrupt! I felt guilty about decisions I had made in the past that really harmed me and my self-esteem. With your support, the tools you shared with the group, daily journaling, sharing and guidance, I found the courage to let go of some relationships that were not serving my greater good. I learned the concept about feeling safe in personal relationships and friendships. I left your retreat with a fresh perspective and an attitude of Grace and Self Compassion for myself. I also experienced first hand the benefits of having a dedicated meditation practice, farm to the table mentality and a better appreciation for Mother Earth. I have invested in a water bottle for my son and I and we use them faithfully. No more plastic bottles! I’m happy to report, I’m on this journey called life and I’ve never been more in love with my life! Thank you, Carley.”
– Kelly B.

What We Love, We Should Protect

What We Love, We Should Protect

How a mindful approach to consumption can help us bridge the gap between individual efforts toward the environment and the bigger picture.

The subject of mindfulness, as it relates to climate change, may be the most important and timely practice of our times. Thich Nhat Hanh writes in his book, The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology, “The situation the Earth is in today has been created by unmindful production and unmindful consumption. We consume to forget our worries and our anxieties. Tranquilizing ourselves with over-consumption is not the way.”

Every fall and spring, I teach on the topic of mindful nourishment at Stanford University. I developed this curriculum nine years ago and have researched it, taught it at worksites, online, and in academia. Within this class, I teach the foundations of mindfulness—to live a fully nourished life at work and at home. The class encourages practices that enable students to focus on how they are nurturing their minds, bodies, relationships, and hearts.

How to Be More Compassionate at Work

How to Be More Compassionate at Work

How compassion can short-circuit stressors in the workplace.

Have you ever dreaded going into work because the people around you were in a negative spiral of energy? We are emotional beings and we can’t help but be affected by the varying moods and interactions we have with others. Life is always changing and this constant change can create difficult thoughts and emotions, which can flow into the workplace. The silver lining is that if we can meet suffering at work with concern and care, compassion naturally arises. Work environments that cultivate compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work.

Cultivate What You Want by Loving What You Have

Cultivate What You Want by Loving What You Have

Want to find contentment in the New Year? Look for ways to acknowledge what’s already working and pair it with intentions for the year ahead.

The concept of a new year can bring promise and sometimes a sense of not being content with what we have. Our mind is naturally inclined toward the negative and as a result we may focus on what needs to be fixed or what isn’t going well in our lives. We can bring an energy of discontentment into the New Year and with it a feeling of pressure. Have you ever heard yourself think, “This is the year that I have to…exercise more, meet the man/woman of my dreams, land that dream job, etc.”

How to Change a Habit for Good

How to Change a Habit for Good

Carley is a guest blogger on Mindful.org.

How mindfulness and a rewarding routine can help us develop good habits that last.

Do you have a habit that you can’t change no matter what you have tried? For the last decade, I have worked as a teacher, coach, and consultant with companies. The subject of what drives and sustains change internally and socially fascinates me. I can say with absolute confidence that I know the steps to change a habit for good. These four tried and tested steps all start with the M word, Mindfulness.

Step 1: Mindfulness

What are habits? Habits are behaviors that become automatic because they have been performed frequently in the past. This repetition or automaticity creates a mental association between the situation (cue) and action (behavior).

7 Ways to (Truly) Relax and Recharge During a Vacation

7 Ways to (Truly) Relax and Recharge During a Vacation

Carley is a guest blogger on myfitnesspal.com.

Have you ever said: “I need a vacation from my vacation?” I hear this statement a lot from clients, colleagues and friends. Why do we over-plan, over-schedule, and overdo our vacations?

These are the two common reasons: We have a fear of missing out and we are used to over functioning in our regular lives, so we take this same energy on our vacations. As a result, we create lengthy itineraries, schedule many locations to see, and try to visit too many people. But what we often need is less, not more.

One study found that female participants were happier and more productive after a relaxing vacation. Another study revealed that if the vacation is relaxing, participants’ happiness levels will last two weeks after the trip is over before returning to back to their baseline level of happiness. If you want to boost health, happiness and productivity, take a relaxing vacation. The following tips will show you how.

“Practicing Mindfulness and Loving Kindness with Carley at Playa Viva was dreamy. I found it to be a gentle and powerful retreat that stayed with me as I settled back into work and my regular schedule at home. It was so relaxing and the perfect setting to lay down new, positive neural pathways. Beach > read > sun > meditate > swim > eat > journal > yoga. Authentic, healthy, tasty meals. I really loved it and it was perhaps the best relaxing vacation ever. Beware, you might cry when you have to leave. I did.”  – Jessi Callihan (Attendee, Savor Your Life Retreat, 2013)

“I attended Carley’s session in May 2014. It was a time in my life that I was going through a lot of transition. I was just focusing on accomplishing daily life and avoiding my feelings or thoughts. I will admit I was nervous going to Playa Viva, a place without distractions and being asked to make my focus internal, however I am so grateful that I did. It was exactly what I needed. Carley was so supportive. The exercises she asked us to do were perfect and I think extremely introspective and helpful for everyone. I continue to use many of the techniques she taught and yoga in my daily life. Grateful!”  Jessica, F.
