Bev’s Musings





Do you ever wonder why you just can't see eye to eye with someone. I saw a great explanation of this by Alan Weiss. Glad he figured this one out. This is from Alan's Monday Morning Memo.  Thanks, Alan.



"One of my granddaughters, Alaina, noticed that Bentley (our white German Shepherd puppy) had his toys on the floor in front of his bed. So, she dutifully picked up each one and deposited it in the bed. As soon as she did so, Bentley threw it back onto the floor. Alaina (four years old) kept retrieving, and Bentley (four months old) kept tossing. To her it was straightening up, to him it was a great game. Since they had differing objectives, they were never going to cooperate, although they did have a symbiotic relationship. Ask yourself, when you perceive less than full cooperation–or if you are receiving cooperation but still not making progress–whether you and the others have common objectives and self-interests. People’s default behavior is to act in their own self-interest. I told Bentley and Alaina that we were going for a ride and they both headed for the door, Alaina opening it and Bentley protecting her in their now common pursuit. That’s why I make the big bucks…."

 Topic: Easing Anxiety in Institutional Settings


 March 20, 2013


 About the Teleseminar

Anytime one is taken out of their familiar settings they experience some level of stress. Apprehension of the unknown, even if the change is voluntary, is quite common. When the transition is thrust upon one, extreme anxiety frequently sets in. It doesn't matter if the move is to a nursing home, a center for those with dementia, a rehab center, or a jail - the response is usually the same.

There are many essential oils and blends that can address anxiety. We will be discussing some of the more common oils and the blends we have made and have used in more unusual situations
