Do This! Before, During, and After

(Based on the essay “Before, During, and After” posted May 17, 2011.)

See if you can reduce your stress and increase your joy by “savoring” an upcoming event. Can you extend anticipation, enhance the experience in the moment, and reminisce about the positive event to trigger happy emotions?

    I am an old friend of your Mom’s and am so enjoying both of your blogs! We are planning a summer birthday family celebration for my husband’s 98 year old Mother. From the family e-mail response, it is much anticipated and I know it will be
    savored and enjoyed in picture and e-mails for years to come! Since I am the one planning, organizing and cooking, your comments are a good reminder that I must pause in the midst of all the hub-bub and truly enjoy this moment!
