Last month at the Sleeping Lady Fall Yoga Retreat, one of the lovely participants gave me this book called, Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson, M.D? To my surprise, this short and simple book contains a lot of wisdom about LIFE and change in particular. If you find yourself in the midst of change – whether it’s related to work, relationships, or geographical location – this book may give you some new ways of seeing and dealing with change (and only takes about an hour to read).

Here are some key insights from the book:

1. Change Happens – They keep moving the cheese (cheese is a metaphor for life)

2. Anticipate Change – Get ready for the cheese to move.

3. Monitor Change – Smell the cheese often so you know when it’s getting old.

4. Adapt to Change Quickly – The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you can enjoy the new cheese.

5. Change – Move with the cheese.

6. Enjoy the Change – Savor the adventure and enjoy the taste of new cheese.

7. Be ready to change quickly and enjoy it again and again – They keep moving the cheese!

Happy Holidays!
