Mona Lisa Smile
Today is Election Day and this has been a very stressful election for many. According to the American Psychological Society, 52% of Americans are experiencing some sort of election related stress.
If you are feeling stressed, angry, fearful or any other negative emotion, there is a quick, easy technique you can use to turn that frown upside down (literally). It’s called “Half-smile.” It’s also sometimes refers to as the Buddha smile or Mona Lisa smile.
5 Ways to Stay Clean and Serene
Chaos is everywhere. There I said it. Now what do we do about it? How do we stay serene when life is chaotic? Whether it’s the kids screaming, work drama, plans falling through and causing problems, misunderstandings with friends, etc… these things are going to happen.

Let Us Entertain You 2015
On January 16, 2016, the Ann Arbor Women’s Group hosted the annual Movie and Ice Cream event “Let Us Entertain You”. This year, 22 women came for fun and fellowship, and of course, the ice cream! Registration was online and a suggested donation was all that was needed to enjoy quality time with other women in recovery. The women met up at the Coffee House Creamery and others provided rides from Maple Rock. This was a great way to get connected to women in the community and to have fun in sobriety. The movie was Joy with Jennifer Lawrence (trailer), the inspirational story of a woman entrepreneur who invented the Miracle Mop and the adversities she faced along the way and how she overcame them. Join us next year for more movies and ice cream. It is an experience you don’t want to miss!
