If you’ve spent your whole life dieting and seeing food and the body as enemies to your weight and health goals, mindful eating may seem like a suspect means to heal that relationship. What good could mere paying attention do in this complex and fraught relationship? If everything else has not worked up to this point, why would mindfulness help now?

Anyone can make one:
For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

The writer can show their personality:
In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience-the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

You can make money:

Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

It allows people to craft better thoughts:
Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it's much better to see people's thought process in a well-written blog post.

You can establish a community:
Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

Good for SEO:
Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

It brings people back to your site:

If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

It's free:
It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there's nothing to stop you.

You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!

Breast cancer in 2015 changed the way my brain worked, and it changed the way I work with clients. I tried to think my way through decisions about treatments and lifestyle and what makes life rich, full and meaningful, and I found that I could not find peace through my thinking, planning, judging brain. I still needed it for some tasks in life, and it worked well enough for those. But for these issues of the heart and soul, it did not work. Not only did it not work, but it actually had a destructive effect. In the absence of new data to take into account, my rational brain spun in deepening spirals that took me farther from light and down into despair.

I wear at least three different hats when I write: the Creative, the Critic and the CEO. Each one involves a different mindset and its own space to work.

As a coach, I draw on a number of tools I’ve gathered over the years: training in mediation; communication training from a variety of sources; community building work from M. Scott Peck’s FCE organization and the related Quaker tradition of gaining clarity from asking questions and listening deeply to the answers; training and certification as a coach.

We are multifaceted beings, but we can lose sight of that when one aspect of our personalities or identities becomes dominant. One place this can become a serious problem is in the case of perfectionism and our definition of success.
