Resilience and Positive Self Talk – Work it Like a Muscle

Scientific research has powerfully demonstrated that Resilience and Positive Self Talk is the key to success at work and satisfaction in life. Your natural reserves of resilience, coupled with the thoughts that you think, affects your performance in school and at work, your physical and mental health, and the quality of your relationships. They are the basic ingredients to happiness and success.

My belief is that everyone has a Resiliency factor. I view exercise as I do the Resiliency factor. For example, when we work out we are building up our muscles to make us stronger and physically fit. That is similar to resilience. We want to build our Resiliency muscle to make us stronger in the sense of how quickly we rebound or bounce back from difficult situations in our lives.

Most of us know that exercise is good for your health, mentally and physically. Experts are saying that laughter, too, is good for your well-being. There are many benefits that laughter triggers such as strengthening your immune system, boosting your energy, diminishing pain, and protecting you from the damaging effects of stress.

In fact I just attended a Laughter and Resilience workshop and I have to say that I left with a smile on my face :-)).

Local Cab Company "Bails Out" Senior Citizens

 

Economic times are tough for everyone including senior citizens who are living on tight or fixed incomes and have been impacted by significant government cuts.

Since there are more than 5,000 seniors in Gaithersburg alone and seniors make up more than 12% of Maryland’s total population, David Mohebbi, President of Regency Taxi based in Gaithersburg, decided to aid seniors by enacting the “Senior Citizen Transportation Bailout,” a program designed to help elderly citizens gain access to necessary appointments or meet ups with friends and family.

“The economy was really bad. A lot of our clients in Montgomery County couldn’t afford to pay to get to their doctors or run everyday errands like buying groceries.  I came up with the idea to give anyone, age 70 and over, a free ride if needed,” explained Mohebbi.

"This is a wonderful program. Our way to give back to the community for what they give us," said Regency cab driver Ron Stoddard.
