Occupy Sanity Tool (OST): Laughter
I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable even hopeful. – Bob Hope
In a year, seemingly filled with many reasons to cry, I have been using the OST: Laughter daily. It might seem crass or cruel to even think of laughing with all the shock, pain, trauma, suffering, angst, and grief, to name a few feelings we’ve experienced.

In an average year, many of us are aware of the Winter Solstice but this year is special with a Grand Conjunction…
Occupy Sanity Tool (OST): Gratitude 2.0
I first introduced the OST: Gratitude with a 3 step exercise in my blog post “5 Minutes of Gratitude Attitude Raises Your Vibration”. As I mentioned in that article, I continue to find: “…that a daily Gratitude Practice has improved my ability to move from a negative state into a positive one quickly.” In 2020, there have been times when I needed to ‘turbo-charge’ my practice; thus I’ve created the OST: Gratitude 2.0.

The Kybalion states that “The Law of Gender is in everything; everything has its feminine and masculine principles (i.e., yin and yang). Gender manifests on all planes of existence – physical, mental, and spiritual.”
Occupy Sanity Tool (OST): Mindemptiness “The usefulness of a cup is in its emptiness.” – Old Chinese Proverb
I was talking to a friend the other day about practicing mindfulness during chaotic times.
The Infinity Symbol is said to represent balance and harmony. If you consider its shape and flow, that makes perfect sense. If you look at something like the Infinity Symbol, you see that it is smooth and in motion. Contrast that to a square or a star shape, and you do not get the same impression
Occupy Sanity Tool (OST) : Breathe. The wisest one-word sentence? Breathe. – Terri Guillemets
I’m having one of those Homer Simpson moments. If you follow that cartoon character,…

Occupy Sanity Tool (OST): Tension Imagine that you are ready to start your day by reading something inspirational or helpful. You might have decided to go to this website to read about the latest OST. You push the button on your computer…and nothing happens. You stare...
