Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, listening to, learning, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – A Reflection on the Prayer of St. Francis. Sent to me on the Feast of Francis. I am praying slowly with this – little by little, line by line. It’s simple and challenging.
An App I’m experimenting with – Love Nudge is an app that is a product of the work of Dr. Gary Chapman based on his book The 5 Love Languages. It’s billed as a fitness app for relationships. It puts the concepts of the 5 Love Languages into action in ways that are easy, obvious and satisfying.
What I’m watching – The LIVECAMS of the Brown Bears at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park Alaska, USA is a delight to watch. The bears are fat, still playful and eager to get their last salmon meals before winter. So fun to watch.
Quote I’m pondering – “Listening creates a holy silence. When you listen generously to people, they can hear truth in themselves, often for the first time. And in the silence of listening, you can know yourself in everyone. Eventually, you may be able to hear, in everyone and beyond everyone, the Unseen singing softly to itself and you.” -Rachel Naomi Reme
More on Braintap – One of my clients is really struggling with anxiety. It’s affecting his sleep miserably. I asked him to give the Braintap app a try for 5 nights using only his earbuds. He emailed me a week later stating his sleep is so much better. He states he is falling asleep faster and when he does wake in the night, he goes back to sleep quickly. He also states his anxiety is noticeably less through his day.
Braintap is a quick and easy way to relax, reboot and revitalize by simply optimizing your brain’s peak potential – anytime, anywhere. Backed by neuroscience and research, brain tapping is proven to help people who experience high stress, difficulty sleeping, low energy, and other lifestyle challenges. Though earbuds and earphones work perfectly well, you can also purchase the headset to take it to another level of effectiveness. Click here to see special promotion offered by Braintap Technologies.
