As a child, when I celebrated St. Patrick's Day surrounded with faux four-leaf clovers, musing about "The Luck Of The Irish", and fantasizing about what wishes I'd choose if I were to find a leprechaun, the idea of being lucky seemed a little more tangible and within my reach. As adults, I think many of us think of luck as arbitrary or nonexistent, and don't realize that we really can create the conditions for greater luck in our lives, even when we're dealing with heavy issues and stress. This newsletter brings luck-increasing tools and tips. May the rest of your week be as wonderful as you wish it to be! (For more stress tips, join the Facebook Group About Stress Management. Hope to see you there!) -Elizabeth
