"You have taught me to believe in myself and to take things slowly, one step at a time, keep sight of my goals, both short term and long term.

Your coaching style was both nuturing and motivating, you seemed to intuitively know some days what I needed most. Your caring and understanding was so appreciated and it came from the heart."

-Holly C.

I would recommend the Simplicity Course as an easy, practical way to start simplifying one's life. I especially liked the segments on Tolerations, Wardrobe, and Office and Paperwork.

Each day focuses on only one task, which is helpful to people who feel overwhelmed by the complexities of modern life and hardly know where to begin downshifting.

-Joan, New York

Beth has an uncanny way of, "reading between the lines" to see a person's heart. I appreciate how genuine she is.

I have already begun implementing her suggestions, and am dumbstruck at how well they are working. I am feeling so much more secure, and feel I am finally put onto a life path that will bring me joy for many years to come."

-Sue Halpern

I feel more focused and have an objective instead of aimlessly filling up the day.

Tiny Change # 42: Stretch daily

I have to be one of the most inflexible people around. Even as a child, I couldn't touch my toes. But, I love to stretch and do yoga. When I don't stretch for a few days, I start to notice I feel stiffer and my breath is shallower.

I have made a habit of stretching after my exercise 5-10 min, every hour or two when I am doing desk work and usually one or two yoga sessions a week.

Stretching doesn't have to take a lot of time or have to be complicated. If your neck starts to feel stiff at your desk, so some neck rolls and shoulder circles. Stretch your calves and hamstrings after you walk using the stretches from gym class.
