After the Little Prince had departed, the Aviator speaks to the reader: “If you ever find yourself in the desert, I beg you, DON’T HURRY ON, wait a while EXACTLY UNDER the STAR.

If a child comes to you,
if he laughs,
if he has golden hair,
if he doesn’t respond when questioned,
you’ll easily guess who it is!

Write to me quickly,
to tell me he is back.” .

Antoine de St. Exupery’s The Little Prince is a beautiful read and a wonderful reflection upon love, friendship and the importance of living authentically each and every day. As such, it has much to teach us about living MINDFULLY.

But don’t take my word for it - get a copy and read it for your self! Make the Little Prince your own special friend - and add even greater enjoyment to your viewing of the stars at night, your caring for roses, your drinking from wells and any adventures you might have in a desert.

I hope you have enjoyed this little review of the Wisdom of this sweet, timeless text.

Many, multitudinous in fact, thanks to Wendy for allowing me to use her beautiful artworks to bring vitality and focus to the reflections. .

Always happier after sharing some Positive Psychology with our medical students... Today we talked about the many benefits of practicing gratitude and cultivating hope. Also, how openness to experience is the strongest predictor of creative achievement. We only need to keep showing up! Happy Friday to all!

Having explained to the Aviator the power of the stars to bring to life the richness of their friendship and to evoke the memory of all they had shared, the Little Prince then spoke of how these same stars would reach into his being: “I’ll also look at the stars. All the stars will be WELLS. All the stars will pour out fresh water for me to drink.

And I will love to LISTEN to the stars at night. It’s just like 500 million little BELLS.”
.

This lovely, parting exchange between the Little Prince and the Aviator, celebrates the rich intertwining of the senses and the inner life - through their SEEING and LISTENING TO the stars at night, they will be in touch with that which is ESSENTIAL yet INVISIBLE- the love and friendship that binds them FOREVER together.

All they need do is look to the stars at night - an invitation to Mindfulness, if ever there was one.

We love this character strength because we feel it aligns with Functional Medicine & Health Coaching so well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Honesty allows people to take responsibility for their feelings and behaviors, owning them, and reaping benefits by doing so.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Functional Medicine Health Coaches help their clients take responsibility not only for their feelings and behaviors but for their overall health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Putting YOU in the driver's seat, owning your health and happiness so you can make the impact you were here to make in this world.

نقطه ته خط تمام 🙂✔️🙂 همین چند دقیقه پیش کار نوشتن کتابی که از اول سال نود و هفت همه وقت خالی و حتی پُرم رو گرفته بود بالاخره تموم شد.
قبل از این هم تجربه نوشتن کتابو داشتم، اما برای هیچ کاری اینقدر وقت و انرژی نذاشته بودم و البته که هیچ کدوم از کارهامو اینقدر دوست نداشتم😍. درسته که تو این مدت خیلی خسته شدم (روزی شونزده ساعت کار یه کم برای من زیاد بود)، اما از لحظه به لحظه کار این پروژه لذت بردم و به عبارتی توش غرق شدم و غرقگی رو تجربه کردم ❤️
از اونجایی که این پروژه مربوط به یه نهاد دولتیه، نمی‌دونم در ادامه مسیر چی پیش میاد. کتاب کِی چاپ می‌شه، کی تدریسش می‌کنه، چطوری ازش استفاده میشه و ...
اما امیدوارم بهترین‌ها اتفاق بیفته و اینو می‌دونم که هرچی پیش بیاد باز من برنده‌ام 😀
همینکه به خاطر نوشتن این کتاب بیش از صدتا کتاب خوندم، همین‌که مجبور شدم حدود سی تا فیلم ببینم. همین که احساس می‌کنم ارزشمندترین تایم زندگیم زمانی بوده که مشغول نگارش این کتاب بودم، همینکه خودم کلی راهکار خوب یاد گرفتم، برام یه دنیا ارزش داره 🙂
به قول شاعر که میگه:
عمر گران می‌گذرد خواهی نخواهی
سعی بر آن کن نرود رو به تباهی...
پ.ن: مسلما از حافظ آهی عزیز به خاطر انتخاب‌های عالی و بسیار مناسبش خیلی خیلی ممنونم 🙂🙏

The Little Prince said to the Aviator:
“My star will be for you just one of the stars, so you’ll have to look at all of the stars... they will be your friends.

Everyone has the same stars but they are not the same for everyone.

You will have the stars AS no one else has them.

Because I will be laughing on one of them, for you, it will be like ALL the STARS are LAUGHING.”
(Ch 25)

How wonderful to see Laughter in the Stars! - To find oneself in the presence of Love, Friendship, Goodness, Peace, Gratitude, Beauty and Acceptance in special moments of solitude and stillness. .

Have you noticed that while we change throughout our lives, there's a part of us that stays relatively intact? I call it our core, and positive psychology defines it as our signature strengths. Knowing your own signature strengths - and using them daily, improves our well-being. Research shows, that people who are in tune with their character strengths⠀
☑️ tend to lead healthier and happier lives,⠀
☑️are more confident, have higher levels of self-esteem⠀
☑️have higher levels of energy and vitality⠀
☑️experience less stress⠀
☑️ are more likely to achieve their goals⠀
☑️perform better and be more engaged at work.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
How to learn what are our signature strengths? The simplest way is to take the VIA Signature Strength Survey (http://www.viacharacter.org/www/Character-Strengths-Survey). This is a free questionnaire consisting of 240 carefully designed statements, with which you agree or disagree on a 5-point scale. The results will reveal one’s character profile descending from the signature strengths at the top to the less expressed ones at the bottom. ⠀
.⠀
In the near future, I'll be posting separate images with each of the 24 character strengths. Look for them!⠀

Refreshed in body and spirit by the living water of the well, the Aviator reflected to the Little Prince: “That which is important cannot be seen.” “I know. It’s like the flower. If you love a flower that’s on a star, it’s sweet to look at the stars at night. All the stars are covered with flowers.

My star will be for you just one of the stars. So you will have to look at all of the stars ... they’ll be your friends.” .

The Aviator and the Little Prince are preparing to part. What becomes precious to them are the ASSOCIATIONS, the beautiful images and symbols, that will keep their special bond alive - the stars, the flower, the desert, the song of the well and the water.

Such associations are a RICH way of keeping alive and fresh, the memory of all who are sacred to us.

It does us all great good to have SPECIAL places, images, music, walks, rituals, times of the day, that EVOKE gratitude and love.

They ready us for Mindfulness through the lovely associations that we have been built up with them over time. .

“I am thirsty for this water,” said the Little Prince “give me some to drink...” This water was something very different from ordinary nourishment. It was BORN of the WALK under the STARS, the SONG of the PULLEY, of the EFFORT of my ARMS.

It was GOOD for the HEART, like a PRESENT.
(Ch 25)

The indomitable human spirit can transform ALL that you have experienced into a source of goodness and life.

When you come to the WELL - your well - you will taste a sweetness born of the wonder of who you are AND of all that has brought you to this point in time.

Taste and delight in this refreshing nourishment through moments of self compassionate Mindfulness whenever you can. .

“Can you hear that?” said the Little Prince “we’ve woken up the well.” The song of the pulley continued in my ears, and in the still trembling water I could see the SUNLIGHT SHIMMER. “I’m thirsty for this water,” said the Little Prince “give me some to drink.”
. (Ch 25)

The Little Prince’s thirst is for something much greater than physical refreshment - his whole being is drawn to the Song of the Well and to the Water that nourishes and heals the inner Life.

Mindfulness can be a well whose song draws us to drink from OUR OWN Life giving waters; refreshing, nourishing and invigorating us for daily life. .

Siempre entusiasmado de compartir lo aprendido, comparto un enlace que me ha fascinado como herramienta científica para medir las fortalezas de la personalidad: viacharacter.org. Se llena en 15 minutos y al terminarlo se genera un reporte con tus 24 fortalezas y una explicación de las mismas. El resultado es potente. Obviamente, dependerá de la calidad de la información y de la honestidad con que respondas el test. ¿Para que te sirve ese autoconocimiento? Imagina lo que pudieras lograr si en tus relaciones personales y en tu desempeño profesional potenciaras deliberada y conscientemente el uso de tus tres primeras fortalezas, por lo menos. Piensa en todas las buenas respuestas que podrás dar en entrevistas de trabajo, en negociaciones de paquetes salariales, de promociones internas, etc. Si quisieras, pudieras usar el resultado para vigorizar tu cv o tu perfil de Linkedin. Además, te abre un mar de oportunidades para robustecer las fortalezas que figuran en la cola de la lista. Si estás en baja, el resultado te ayudará a rebotar. Agregué el enlace en mi bio. Te invito a llenar el test (disponible también en español), compartir en los comentarios tus tres primeras fortalezas y a etiquetar a tres personas que quieras. ¡Empecemos esta semana potentes! #CharacterStrengths #LiveYourPotential #MelvinPeña

New week, new opportunities to learn something new. As an INTP person, the drive to learn new things is inherently present in my personality. No kidding, one of my signature strengths - positive psychology - is Love of Learning. What are your signature strengths? ⠀

I digress. How do you feel about this quote? Do you agree with Dr. Joe Dispenza view that "Knowledge is the precursor to experience." Do you need to "know" before you can really experience something? Or do you think we don't need to know to feel inspired? Please let me know, I'm always ready to learn something new!⠀

And continuing to walk, I found the well at DAYBREAK. “Can you hear that?” said the Little Prince “we’ve woken up the well and it is singing.”
.
There is a deep well of life giving ‘water’ that awaits us all through the practice of Mindfulness.

All we need do, is like the Aviator, journey towards it, one step at a time. And at own DAYBREAK, the WELL, deep within, will AWAKEN and will sing its SONG of WELCOME, inviting us to partake of its life giving nourishment.

Every journey begins with a single step. (Lao Tzu) .

Looking at the Little Prince asleep in his arms, the Aviator said to himself: “What I find so deeply moving about this little sleeping Prince is his DEVOTION to a flower; it’s the image of a rose that SHINES in him like the FLAME of a LAMP, even when he is sleeping. And I came to think of him as even more fragile. One has to look after lamps: a gust of wind can put them out.” (Ch 24)

Your Well-being - your health of mind, body and spirit is a TREASURE to be CHERISHED with great tenderness, love and attention.

Be vigilant in caring for the
images of Love and Goodness that shine within, like the flame of a lamp.

Positive psychology is a way of thinking that addresses, “What do we need to thrive? What contributes to a good life?” As Dr. Sheinbaum shares in this week’s #15MinuteMatrix episode, character strengths are essential traits that, when used, help us to be and become our best selves. They’re an essential part of healing!

Your Soul is curious. It needs to experience: see, touch, smell, taste, hear. 👀 ✋ 👃 👅 👂 :
Curiosity is recognizing and seizing the pleasures that novel experiences offer you. When curious, you tend to see situations from a different perspective. You're more present and engaged in the moment. :
:
This leads to feeling more alive, more capable of embracing opportunities, making connections and experiencing moments of insight and meaning. These all contribute to your foundation for a rich, mindful and satisfying life experience!
:
Here are 5 ways that curiosity enhances your well-being and quality of life:
:
🌹 HEALTH - Stepping out of familiar routines preserves mental faculties, keeping neurological illness at bay in later years.
:
🌹 INTELLIGENCE - Studies have revealed that high level of curiosity in adults is connected to greater analytic ability, problem solving skills and overall intelligence.
:
🌹 RELATIONSHIPS - Curious people tend to be more extroverted, hence more enthusiastic, have a wide range of interests, more confident and humorous. This leads to deeper connection and engagement in social settings.
:
🌹 HAPPINESS - Curiosity is one of the top five character strengths that is highly associated with overall life fulfillment and happiness.
:
🌹 MEANING - The greater the range and depth of curiosity, the more opportunities to experience things that inspire, motivate and excite the soul. This is the entry point to life's meaning, purpose and satisfaction.
:
So tune in to the power of your curiosity and start applying it mindfully. It can transform daily tasks into new-found habits, opening the opportunity for you to flourish!!

What are your character strengths?
. .
Okay, like me, you might be thinking, “How different is this from the Gallup Strengths Finder?” Well, it’s VERY different. This one is about character. This won’t talk about you being good in speaking, organizing, analyzing or leading. It is based on core virtues such as wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, and transcendence. It will not tell you what career/job you should be in, but as Martin Seligman (founder of Positive Psychology) said, knowing and using your strengths will help you discover authentic happiness.
. .
If you’re interested to know your top character strengths, you can take the test for FREE at buff.ly/Lu8xqk then post your results too and tag me! :) (P.S I am not associated with this group. Just spreading the love)

Individual character strengths (the specific qualities of character a person exhibits the most) have been studied extensively. Out of a list of twenty-four character strengths, “self-control” is commonly reported among a person’s weaker strengths. Patience is a difficult skill to exercise, and if you struggle with it you are in good company.

It’s common knowledge that all humans have strengths and weaknesses. We tend to value some people because of signature strengths which enrich our lives. However, strengths can also be overused. The tendency to overuse a strength can sometimes be considered a weakness in an individual. Healthy relationships include appreciation of each person’s strengths, and also space for each person to learn to balance his or her characteristics within a relationship. Is there someone in your life whose actions sometimes irritate you? Can you imagine how this action might reflect a strength in that person that you greatly appreciate in other contexts?

When knowing your signature strengths can supercharge your self-care 👌🏼
.
One of my top 5 is ‘appreciation of beauty and excellence’, so I know for sure that if I go to the effort to find somewhere beautiful, lay in the sun, look out to the beautiful ocean, then I will be instantly recharged. Couple this with my top strength, gratitude, and it’s an unbeatable way to feel my best and lay the foundations for a fantastic day.
.
If your top strength is bravery, give abseiling or rock climbing a crack and see how it makes you feel. Top strength ‘love of learning’? Grab a non-fiction book and scribble notes in the margins for 40 minutes. Maybe your top strength is judgement, so go people-watching... 😂 kidding on that last one.

How can your top strengths help you to recharge and feel amazing?

“Looking back, I wish I had had a Health Coach to inspire me to take back my recovery process. I never felt heard or powerful, and a coach would have heard me and helped me empower myself. So that’s the kind of coach I strive to be, empowering my clients to know their worth, to move forward rather than live in the past, and educating others in this new way of approaching nutrition and healing.” - Lauryn, FMCA student

A strengths based perspective is not only a great way to teach, parent, or lead, it’s a great way to live! #tbt to just last week and collecting character strengths pins from @mayersonacademy at the #wpea2018.

In a study that spanned decades, psychologist, E.P. Torrance found that a huge number of people pursue careers that are aligned with their childhood passions and interests. Further research has found that those who work in fields which utilize their strengths have higher well-being than those who do not. Is there an element of a childhood passion that you can infuse into your current work? Is there a way you can draw upon your strengths more?

🔶🔴🎥🎞️📽️🎞️📽️🔶🔴 معرفی فیلم: 127 ساعت
کارگردان : Danny Boyle
بازیگر : James Franko
محصول : ۲۰۱۰
۱۲۷ ساعت داستان واقعی یک کوهنورد به نام آرون رالستون است که در حین کوهنوردی در گراند کانیون یک تخته سنگ روی دستش می افتد و او در یک کوه دور افتاده زندانی می شود. آرون در تمام مدت ۵ روزی که گیر افتاده بود از تمام ابزارهای ممکن که باعث ادامۀ حیاتش می شدند استفاده کرد. در آن مدت خانواده، دوستان، نامزد و دوستان کوهنوردش را به خاطر آورد. او به هیچ کس نگفته بود کجا می رود و هیچ امیدی نداشت که کسی پیدایش کند. پس از دست و پنجه نرم کردن ۵ روزه با مرگ، آرون این قدرت را در خودش می بیند که با قطع کردن دستش از مچ، خودش را از تخته سنگ جدا کند و پس از ۶۵ پا بالا رفتن از کوه و کیلومترها پیاده روی خودش را نجات دهد.
این فیلم بدین دلیل در فهرست فیلم‌های روان‌شناسی مثبت‌گرا قرار گرفته که آرون (شخصیت اصلی فیلم) نماد امید، پشتکار و شجاعت است. ❌ تماشای فیلم به افرادی که ترس از خون دارند، توصیه نمی شود.

🎬📌🎬📌معرفی فیلم: نظریه همه چیز (استفاده از توانمندی های منش) The Theory of Everything
کارگردان: جیمز مارش
بازیگران: ادی ردمِین، فلیسیتی جونز، چارلی کاکس، امیلی واتسون و ...
محصول : انگلستان
نظریۀ همه‌چیز فیلمی در سبک درام و زندگی‌نامه‌ای به کارگردانی جیمز مارش است که در سال ۲۰۱۴ منتشر شد. آنتونی مک‌کارتن فیلم‌نامۀ این فیلم را برپایۀ کتاب سفر به بی‌نهایت: زندگی من با استیون نوشتۀ جین وایلد هاوکینگ، نگاشته‌است. در این کتاب او به رابطه‌اش با همسر سابقش، استیون هاوکینگ، ابتلای استیون به بیماری عصبی حرکتی و موفقیتش در فیزیک می‌پردازد.
ما در این فیلم که به فراز و فرودهای رابطه بین فیزیکدان مشهور استیون هاوکینگ و جین پرداخته است، به خوبی شاهد استفاده از توانمندی های منش در زندگی این زوج هستیم. هر دوی آنها در طول رابطه به توانمندی های منشی شان متعهد می مانند (هویت مثبت). استیون برای رسیدن به اهدافش توانمندی های تشکیل دهنده فضیلت خرد مانند کنجکاوی، تفکر نقاد و عشق به یادگیری را به کار می گیرد، در حالیکه همسرش جین در همه مراحل زندگی با استیون برای مقابله با مشکلات از توانمندی هایی مانند مهربانی، بخشش و عشق استفاده می کند.
داستان
در سال ۱۹۶۳، در یک مهمانی، استیون هاوکینگ دانشجوی کیهان‌شناسی دانشگاه کمبریج، با جِین وایلد که دانشجوی ادبیات در همان دانشگاه است، آشنا می‌شود. با وجود این‌که استیون در ریاضی و فیزیک توانایی بالایی دارد، دوستان و استادانش نگران موضوع تز دکترای وی هستند. استیون به‌همراه استادش به یک سخنرانی راجع به سیاه‌چاله ها می‌روند که باعث می‌شود استیون به این فکر بیفتد که سیاه‌چاله‌ها باعث به‌وجود آمدن جهان شده‌اند، و بعداً تصمیم می‌گیرد موضوع تزش را "زمان" انتخاب کند.
زمانی که درحال تحقیقات است، برخی ماهیچه‌های بدن استیون از کار می‌افتند و باعثِ افتادن و وارد شدن ضربه‌ای به سر وی می‌شود. به او گفته می‌شود که به بیماری عصبی نادری مبتلاست و به‌زودی تمام ماهیچه‌های بدنش از کار خواهد افتاد و توانایی راه رفتن، حرف زدن و غذا خوردن را از دست خواهد داد؛ اما به مغزش آسیبی وارد نمی‌شود، و این‌که حداکثر دو سال دیگر زنده خواهد ماند. استیون گوشه‌گیر می‌شود و همه را از خود می‌رانَد. جِین به او می‌گوید که دوستش دارد. جین با والدین استیون صحبت می‌کند و آن‌ها وضعیت را به‌طور کامل برای او شرح می‌دهند. جین تصمیم می‌گیرد که با استیون بماند. آن‌ها ازدواج می‌کنند و...
