My Awe-full Christmas

By Linda Oxford, MS, MA, LPC, RYT500 | January 1, 2013 | 2 Comments

It could have been an awful Christmas.  It was the first since my mom died and the first spent without my children.  I had little money to spend on gifts and assumed I would get none.  I had been feeling the heavy sorrow of all the tragedy and heartbreak of the past several weeks and…

Counseling – Another Beginning

By Linda Oxford, MS, MA, LPC, RYT500 | November 30, 2012 | 0 Comments

If you think about it, life is a series of new beginnings.  Each day, each moment, brings an opportunity to begin again. Something is always ending, making way for something new.  We can make the same choices or try something different.  We can look at a situation the way we always have, or we can…

Mindfulness – It's as simple as that

By Linda Oxford, MS, MA, LPC, RYT500 | August 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

“I just can’t empty my mind—the harder I try, the busier it gets!” This is a common concern for people beginning to practice mindfulness.  They think that when they sit down to meditate, they should be able to wipe the slate of their mind clean, and thus become relaxed and calm.  They imagine not having…

I have been feeling very tired and depleted lately.  My back has been crabby and my right foot hurts.  I was noticing all this the other day, and feeling very angry at my body.  Then a thought appeared in my mind…what if my body was doing exactly what it was supposed to be doing to…

I just got back from picking blueberries.  In addition to being a great food with lots of nutritional value, I found the act of picking the berries to be very relaxing! I always feel good when I spend time outdoors, in the fresh air, the breeze and the sun.  As I picked, I found myself…

The sky is falling! (or is it?)

By Linda Oxford, MS, MA, LPC, RYT500 | April 6, 2011 | 0 Comments

It has been quite a winter here.  We had “Snow-mageddon,” “Snow-mageddon II” and a huge ice storm.  Our days were filled with dire weather alerts, scary traffic updates, school closings and eye-witness reports.  Piled on top of the terrible economic conditions, horrific stories of wars and natural disasters, is it any wonder that many of…

Don't just do something, sit there!

By Linda Oxford, MS, MA, LPC, RYT500 | January 9, 2011 | 0 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot about attachment.  I get so used to how things are that I find myself fighting change, even though I know everything is temporary. Last year, I was doing work that I was good at and paid well.  It wasn’t anything I wanted to do permanently, but it was helping to…

The winter holidays can be a pretty stressful time.  We see family and friends in greater numbers and frequency.  Our normal routines are disrupted as we try to fit in as many holiday activities as we can.  Many of us feel a sense of time urgency as we struggle to get it all “done” before…
