Joeann's Tuesday Tips
August 15, 2017

Joeann's View:

My theme this week is happy. I have shared some things that have made me happy this past week. Noticing how much there is to be happy about is a gift in itself. I am teaching myself to be more present in the moment, instead of holding onto what can’t be changed or worrying about what “could” happen.

Bub thinks I am being irresponsible to not be outraged at some of the politics, but I choose to appreciate the bliss and joy than focus on something I can’t change. I am trying my best to be a model of happiness for my grandchildren and others I interact with. Each of us has our own thoughts and ways of dealing with circumstances we can’t change — so I don’t mean to be judgmental, rather sharing the perspective that lights up my days!

This week, Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

What I've been Reading

The Alchemist By Paulo Cohelo

This classic is one that often is on those lists of "must-reads” and yet, somehow I never had. It’s a quick, deep read written parable-style about a shepherd who is looking for his life’s purpose. Take the time to read it, if you haven’t already. I guarantee you will look at your life through a different lens!

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She is Sorry by Fredrik Backman

From the author of A Man Called Ove, This delightful story is a fairy tale/manual of how being different is good. Written from the perspective of an almost 8 year old, it will give you an interesting filter to look at life! Her grandmother was off the wall and before her time… sorta the kind of grandmother I’d want to be remembered as, (thoough not entirely!)

What Made me Happy

Shawn Anchor’s Talk “The Secret to Better Work"

We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues, in this TedX talk, that happiness actually inspires us to be more productive. You will laugh and gain some major ah-ha’s if you listen to this.

14 Surprising Things You can do with Google Maps

Google Maps has evolved a lot over the years, making the jump from our computers to our phones and adding a ton of cool features along the way. In fact, there are so many that we're sharing our favorite features, along with some hidden tips and tricks. I think finding my parked car is my favorite! Check it out!

Bonus Tip: What Type Are You?

Type A or Type Be?

This article fits with this week’s theme, so I hope it is okay with you to have an additional tip! I was proud for many years for being a Type A, driven, productive woman! When I looked a the clinical definition of Type A, (a subset of people deemed most at risk for a heart attack or stroke due to excessive stress,) I realized this was not a good thing. Author Brandon Evans shares thoughts on this and the better way!

Money Tip

Just Ask…You’ve Nothing To Lose

Have you ever inadvertently missed a credit card payment and gotten hit with the late fee? I thought I had all my cards on auto-pay when we left for Europe, but missed one! I called today and explained I was out of the country and thought it was on auto-pay. I paid it as soon as I knew. I also pointed out I had a history of on-time payments. The customer service rep said as a courtesy she would reverse the charge!

Another example: I was setting up my self-directed bank account and depositing a large check. The teller said there was a $35 fee to do something connected with the check and my son says,"Can you waive that?" And she says yes!

One of the classic lessons from my Mom…. always ask… you’ve nothing to lose.

Happy outcomes!

Don't Worry! Be Happy!

Have an Awesome Day! It IS up to you!
