All in one place, you can download music, audio books, audio files, charts, articles, ebooks, and movies:75 items I've authored and I'm giving them away to help you have a better day.
Find them at http://gooddayjournal.com/freestuff
I've been giving these away for 6 years now, and the seven empty CD spindles in my office show I've given away 700 CD's with these items on them. All have been found to help folks unwind, destress, and enjoy the beauties of nature.
The big new edition is the gift of 16 songs from professional jazz pianist Billy Dennison Froehner.
Here's an overview of what you can download with a click:
There is hours of music from Billy Dennison Froehner and soon others.
These are high quality recordings of solo piano jazz on album one, the songs are mixed with environmental sounds on album 2 and album 3, and then album 4 is half an hour of sooting river sounds with the songs coming and leaving -- a solid half an hour unbroken with soothing sounds. Album 5 does the same for the last half of Billy's album. Album 6 and 7 are interviews with this jazz legend, who continues to perform in New York and the east coast, as well as in Colorado.
Six movies are there so far. The first four are 2-5 minute movies with nature images and jazz music from Mark Sloniker (see marksloniker.com for more of his music). The fifth and sixth are part of a movie series, called The Green Concert, celebrating the inspiration that comes from the wonderful living things on our wonderful "green" planet. These longer movies, of 20-30 minutes, feature wildlife and wildflower images in a movie format with Billy's music and river sounds and the recordings of bird songs, all from the Rocky Mountains. Three more movies will come with his music. These movies will play on your ipod or computer, load em into your itunes! Great way to take in the peace and tranquility that God put in nature!
Well, there is one so far. It is a PDF book, an ebook, on some gems I've learned for stress managmenet. It is called "The Four Secrets For Successful Living," and it combines positive thinking and other strategies I've seen work, and I've used myself, for 35 years.
4. Audio Books
None so far, but they will be coming!
5. Audio Files
Albums 8, 9, 10 are dedicated to helping you learn to practice deep relaxing techniques: deep breathing, visualization, meditation. The first two albums make it easy. Just listen and do what it says and you will learn to meditate! Album 10 has nature sounds for you to use on your own, to get your mind in a "good frame of mind," taking in the peace of nature from the sounds of nature, namely the sounds of a Rocky Mountain stream with the sounds of a crackling campfire and chirping birds!
I've written a number of articles on stress managment, organization and the like. Download and read for free!
Keeping track is a big deal. What you track you can change is an old saying. These charts help you keep track of: anxiety, daily routines, bipolar mood swings, symptoms of ptsd and other items.

But I'm nervous...you can't control what people will say about me! Yikes...
Okay, so people want to know what I personally am thinking. Well I'm at a social media marketing conference today. Whew. It's complicated to know Facebook (800 million users), Twitter (million)s), and create buzz by word of mouse. This stuff is just weird. I don't get it. People say wow, tweet, I saw this I saw that. Tweet tweet tweet. It just seems so dumb to me. Oh, look, I am getting a coffee at the starbucks at the Hilton in Fort Collins.
This is a test entry. This took me 30 seconds!
March has seen warm winds and tulips, but cold winds are back!
People I know are working hard, doing what they do best, and being more resourceful at that.

This morning, clouds, rain, a cool breeze out of the northwest.
Walking along a gravel road, hearing my boots crunch along, nature is thriving.
Flax is blooming in little bunches, sprung from seeds from last years' flax that came from seeds our hands sprinkled the year before that.
Robins sing, meadowlarks were calling. To the west a flock of pigeons flew past, harrassed by a kestrel, hunting for its fledglings.
The greatest story ever told is the story of your individual life.
The attitude of thankfulness helps you read this story.
I wake up each day and express my thankfulness for three things before I start my day and state what kind of a day I want.
Today, I am thankful for my wife and son and daughter. I want to have a good Monday.
A little rain goes a long ways these past several days...Even more than one week ago, leaves are popping out all over, on sage brush, in the grass and hundreds of herbs that inhabit the native prairie on the open spaces around Fort Collins, here in Colorado...The Western Kingbird, as in the photo at bottom is singing like it's manic. What a show!
