‘I-Rish’ you a happy St. Patrick’s day!

You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s day.

You don’t even have to be Irish to be Lucky.

Tenneseee Williams said “Luck is believing you’re lucky.”

This St. Patrick’s day we invite you to know a bit more about the power of positive thinking.

The Power Of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale, has sold over 5 million copies worldwide and takes a Christian perspective and real-world approach to positive psychology.

3 Lessons regarding positive thinking:

Lesson 1: Believe in yourself and visualize your goals to see how small your problems are.

Lesson 2: Your attitude determines your entire life.

Lesson 3: Imagine your life free of worry to become less concerned about the future.

May you be very LUCKY!

A Happy New Year!

A fresh new year is here. It’s the time to be thankful for the blessings of the past year and to take stock of all our achievements.

At the same time,  2017 is a brand new year to start  fresh and a great opportunity to establish positive changes in your life to improve your mental and physical well being.

So work towards setting positive goals and have visuals whether on your fridge, phone or anywhere that you will see to help you achieve them.

Also, remember that the path towards healthy physical, mental and financial well being is not always easy and there will always be challenges so view them as learning opportunities.  

We know you can achieve your goals by using the right coping skills.  We even have Oliver cheering you on in the New Year.

From all the staff at 1 Alliance Counseling and Psychotherapy Service Happy New Year!
