Happy Monday and Happy Fall!!

I don't know about you, but I love this time of the year. For me, this season represents soup, sweaters, cozy nights and cool mornings. The air is crisp and clean, and change is definitely in the air.

October is National Emotional Wellness Month, and here are 3 top things that you can do this month to increase your emotional wellness.
  1. Slow Down - Let this season be the reminder to cozy up with a book, drink a cup of tea, stay in bed a bit longer, breathe, rest, and renew. You don't need to get it all done at this moment...give yourself permission to slow down and breathe.
  2. Practice Self-Compassion - Kristin Neff, leading researcher on self-compassion, describes the 3 components of what make up a self-compassion practice...
    • Common Humanity - you are unique, but you're problems are not. Whatever you are experiencing is part of being human.
    • Mindfulness - allow and accept, without resistance, denial or judgement, what's arising in the present moment. The more you can accept things as they are, the happier you'll be.
    • Kindness - treat yourself like your own best friend, including changing the tone of your loud inner critic.
  3. Let Go of What You No Longer Need to Carry - the trees let go of their leaves in order to allow new growth to blossom, and you can do the same. Release whatever is in your way of allowing you to be who and what you're meant to be.
If this is speaking to you, but want some greater assistance in how to incorporate these 3 tools into your life so you can soar in your emotional wellness, then check out what I've got going on down below! Oh and btw, I actually believe there are 3 missing pieces to this definition of self-compassion. Come to my workshop on Oct 4th if you want to learn what they are...scroll down for more info.

Big Hugs and Deep Gratitude for being part of my path; I'm grateful to be part of yours!

Mental and Emotional Self-Care
It’s so easy in our modern life to glorify busyness. And it’s legit. We all have stuff to do. Important stuff to do. The problem is when we don’t have balance and that lack of balance gets in the way of our mental and emotional health. Sometimes we are even so far out of balance […]

What Does it Mean to Journey Forward Anyways??
The Time I Went to the ER in Paris
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #93545 and founder of the Bay Area Mindfulness and Therapy Center, in Northern California. I host  JOURNEY FORWARD WITH JOREE ROSE, the podcast, offer online courses in mindfulness and meditation, works with people 1:1 (both virtually and in-person) and leads retreats around the world. I also have two mindfulness books for kids published, speak locally and nationally, as well as lead corporate trainings in mindfulness. At the root of all my work, I guide my clients to JOURNEY FORWARD, which means getting unstuck from what’s not working in your life (habits, patterns, outdated stories you are living by, relationships or jobs that are no longer serving you) and gaining the tools, shifting your mindset and integrating science-backed frameworks that will lead to lasting change towards your authentic happiness, peace and joy. I have taken the Journey Forward, and am a living example of the tools I teach. I believe that change and growth is possible and authentic happiness is attainable!
