Managing Workplace Emotions
You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

The hills are alive

Friday 26th Nov
It has warmed up. Minus seven is feeling warm, balmy and manageable. Clive and I went for our first cross country ski of the season, came back with flushed cheeks and taut muscles. The hum of swishing skis, squawking ravens and the distant rumble of a long Canadian train reminded me that the hills are alive, well maybe not music but definately sounds. It was good to glide through the vast mountains and remind ourselves what a glorious place this is to live.

Sat 27th Nov
Well we liked it so much we took our backcountry gear and slogged up to
Burstall pass and even managed and few turns. However you can tell
my children do not get their ski prowess from their mother. Even although
tomorrow I will have completed the 30 day yoga challenge. Yoga every day
for the entire month of November. I had to rush back after the ski trip to fit
in my yoga class at 5 pm. I must say that I went in thinking I could hardly
move a limb and came out feeling like a new woman. Nicole our incredible
teacher choose all the exercises that stretched out my sore points.
I love yoga.   This is a picture looking up the Robertson Glacier and the
one below is me seeing if I can remember how to ski Ha ha!
