50 Quotes to Inspire Your Journaling Time

By Stefanie Sample |   Jan 30, 2018


Have you tried journaling yet? That's not just a question for this post -- it's something we ask clients all the time! Journaling is such a powerful practice for growth-oriented thinking, and it's been shown to have positive health benefits.


And while you can certainly write about your day or your to-do list, one way to help generate insights in your journaling is to take a powerful or thoughtful quote and then reflect on it through your writing.

Things I Learned from Listening to My Procrastination

By Steve Scanlon |   Oct 26, 2017

Last night before falling asleep, I had a brief and final thought about going for a good run in the morning. But the next morning, lo and behold, I wake, do some meditation, get to some work, and then realize that I have a headache. I almost felt queasy. I don’t really know why, but at about 8:00 the little man inside of me began to create reasons not to go for that run I had whole-heartedly committed to just hours before.  You know that little person, right?  He or she is the one inside of all of us crafting all manners of excuses for us not to do something.

A True Story About What's on the Other Side of Rewiring

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 21, 2017

The articles we write are intended to communicate the Rewire way of thinking. Our hope is that we bring a blend of applicable science to your everyday work and life. As such, we always try to connect outside, real-world research to every article. Today, however, I am going to take a brief departure from that and simply offer a personal story about the power of a mind that is being rewired.

I’ve Used This Boat Metaphor to Meet Challenges and Drive Growth for Teams

By Edith "Edie" Raphael, PhD |   May 02, 2017

This past year, I’ve been consulting for a company and one of its contractors on a big project. Since this big project requires close coordination, a large part of my work has become helping the two teams work better together. And this has not always been easy. The scope of their project is massive with matching stakes for success and failure. The deadlines are aggressive. The stress level is consistently high.

7 Strategies for Effective Stress-management

Wish we could turn back time -- to the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep -- but now we're stressed out
~Twenty One Pilots, “Stressed Out”

Readers who’ve met me in real life likely know that, in addition to my work with Rewire, I teach yoga. A few years ago, I had a scheduling conflict and asked my friend Sarah to lead the class in my place. The class was held in a yoga studio below an accounting firm. Unfortunately, poor Sarah turned the bass on her music a bit too high. So a few minutes into class, the meditative stillness was broken by a BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! on the door. The whole class started and turned to see a red-faced, stress-deranged accountant yelling “TURN DOWN YOUR MUSIC!”

How Definitions Shape the Trajectory of our Work

By Steve Longan |   Feb 03, 2017

I don’t think you have to be a “bad kid” to get in trouble a lot. You just have to be someone who doesn’t know when to shut up and stop arguing. Or how to tell the difference between the practical joke that just gives everyone a laugh and the practical joke that gets you suspended.

If You Want Change, Start with Stillness

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 20, 2017

The original idea that fueled the birth of Rewire, Inc. was that human beings, throughout our entire lives, have the capacity to change. It was that simple. It still is. This is the root belief that we at Rewire keep coming back to: change in our thinking and change in our action is not only possible but could be at the very core of what makes us fully human.

Listen Deeply. Emotional Intelligence When It Really Matters.

By Steve Scanlon |   Nov 09, 2016

Like millions of others, I awoke this morning in disbelief. I’ll preface this article by saying, for the record, Rewire, Inc. takes no official position about political outcomes. That is, we neither cheer or boo for any individual winner or loser. Instead, we will observe and do our best to listen and understand.

3 Reasons for Taking Short Breaks from Email (and how to start)

By Steve Longan |   Oct 14, 2016

People don’t always understand the profound importance of a given moment when they’re in it. And we can tell because of what they choose to say in that moment. So, for every Neil Armstrong (“That’s one small step for (a) man; one giant leap for mankind.”), we have an Alexander Graham Bell (“Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.”).

Getting A Handle On Anger

By Edith "Edie" Raphael, PhD |   Aug 17, 2016

Just yesterday, I was walking down the office hallway of a corporate client when I made eye contact with one of the employees. “You know,” she said to me after I stopped to ask how she was doing, “what you really should be teaching is anger management.”
