The Power of Humor and Optimism
A life that is fulfilling is predicated on discovering how to use thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to enhance our mental and physical well being. Many of us go day to day hypnotized by internal dialogue that leads us down the path of negativity and unhappiness. It is often the result of parental and societal messages, but it can also be an inherited predisposition towards depression and/or anxiety. Optimism, which is a resiliency based model, can be taught. It is not the fairy tale concept of simply thinking "positive thoughts", but rather an explanatory style. When we add the ingredient of humor, our ability to handle life's inevitable ups and downs becomes more accessible.

The WOW Factor
(Wisdom, Openness, and Wonder as a benchmark for living well)
We've all met enthusiastic, energetic people that leave us wondering what they could possibly be "on" to be the way they are. Most individuals today report fatigue and stress as a way of life. There are a myriad of causes, but the most prevalent problem is the notion that life is a constant series of tasks that need to be accomplished and expedited quickly. As a result taking care of one's health and happiness becomes secondary to making sure everything is done by the end of the day. Ironically this mentality actually drains our resources and dampens the very thing we need to have a productive life which is energy, or a feeling of "WOW". Our ability to use our wisdom, be open to new ideas and experience wonder in the everyday is exchanged for a robotic mentality based on forging ahead. When we are in a "WOW" mode relationships flourish, success is more attainable, and we tend to feel more energetic.

Life Is Not A Stress Rehearsal
(Bringing Yesterday’s Sane Lifestyle Into Today’s Insane World)
For most of us life has become a pressure cooker of unrealistic expectations, information overload, relentless marketing and workaholism that we spend our days stressed out over being stressed out. Loretta makes us see the wisdom of a more civilized time when no one carried a cell phone during a peaceful walk on the beach. With her contemporary wit and a hearty dose of old-world wisdom, Loretta brings a breath of fresh air for everyone who’s suffocating in our techno crazed, germ-phobic, “ go-go-go” world.

Authentic Happiness: It Takes Courage to be Happy
One of the most self-defeating concepts in the modern world is the pursuit of happiness. Not because it is not without merit. Since we all know that feeling good far outweighs feeling bad. It is "how" we go about it that has helped create the epidemic of self-entitlement, depression, lack of humor, and outbursts of anger that permeate the culture. We cannot buy, or demand happiness. Loretta LaRoche, a pioneer in the field of stress management using humor as a coping mechanism, now brings you her newest work..."It takes Courage to be Happy"... She brings newly discovered life-transforming answers to how we can change our lives, mentally, physically, and spiritually through a series of groundbreaking information and exercises that show the connection between happiness and human behavior...
