Welcome to "Happiness Index!" This Thursday, we continue our conversation on Mindful Practices: Journey to Joy. The holidays are here and anxiety is building. There are the haves and the have-nots and it appears that the gap between the rich and the poor are greater now than ever. The stress to bring joy to your family by buying more things is great! How does one apply mindful practices to alleviate the stress that come during these "Holy Days"? How can we truly experience the Spirit of the Holidays? Mindful Practices can offer a way. Through Mindful Practices we can celebrate the Holidays in the spirit of giving and sharing without the stress of shopping. The whole world is in the spirit of celebrating. But, have we forgotten what the season represent? It is a time of reconnecting to our values, remembering and recalling the love we feel for each other. It is a time for community building and family gatherings. It is a time to forget about what others have and our struggle with fear and competition. This is a time to let go of false happiness. Today we will explore Mindful Practices and journey to joy together. Thank you for listening to "Happiness Index" on BlogTalkRadio.com.

Welcome to Bill Martinez Live, hosted by an unapologetic AMERICAN U.S. Marine of Mexican descent who knows why people come to America but demands that immigrants come through the front door and that the rule of law is respected. Bill Martinez Live waves just one flag and has no use for hyphenated hearts torn between the 4th of July and some other foreign flag. We put the United States over party politics and broadcasting our unstinting praise of this great land to 250 American cities through CRN, BML syndication and the ever popular Blog Talk Radio platform.
Republicans & Democrats have lost a grasp on life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for ALL Americans. Bill Martinez Live helps us regain it. Listen in to the show to hear every facet of the issues but keep your eye on God and the exceptionalism to which he has urged on America and its people. Our nation is at a crossroads but remember your solemn birthright fellow Americans as "We the People". See more at: http://billmartinezlive.com/about-the-program/#sthash.tooJ0atj.dpuf
