Chapter 29 of my book,
A Soft Voice in a Noisy World, is Positive Daily Living. The chapter offers some fresh perspectives and numerous suggestions on how we might make some changes in our daily lives. Voice actor, Doug Gochman does a wonderful job in expressing my words on the audio book.

It’s week 3 in my Hear It, Share It series. My goal for this series was to share some chapters of my audiobook (for free/no download) with you in hopes to help during this Coronoavirus pandemic. I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to these chapters and found something to take away!

I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. This is my personal opinion that I’ve developed as I’ve lived with Parkinson’s disease for over 30 years.

Some Rediscovered Observations–Worth Sharing

PathwayHere are some thoughts and tips that I wrote down awhile back and found again-I hope that they are    helpful:

1. It is a new year–full of exciting opportunities to explore. Keep your options open and remain flexible to new possibilities. Be open and a little cautious,too.

2. Keeping a positive and hopeful outlook isn’t always easy for some of us. Following through the hardest times makes even the smallest joys of life that much sweeter.

3. Staying social and active are crucial to anyone facing an illness. The stronger your support team–the stronger you are!

4. Diet, sleep, and stress can alter everything–it’s up to you how you monitor them.

5. Stay focused and on track. Targeting a cause can pinpoint your goal and keep you motivated and clear.

6. Embrace the day–there is no need to attack it.

Please share it–if you like it.
