2. The Quality of Your Thoughts

Can the mind help cure disease? What role do the emotions play in preventing illness?

What is the relationship between the thoughts you think, the feelings you experience, and the overall health and well-being of your body? This is a very old question, but modern science has developed some innovative ways to determine the answers. And, while what they are finding may startle some people, it doesn’t come as a big surprise.

It turns out that improving the quality of your life lowers your chances of developing serious mental and physical illness and also improves the speed and likelihood of your recovery. And if you want to improve the quality of your life, you must start by improving the quality of your thinking.

You see, the quality of what happens to you in life – all of your accomplishments, all your behaviors and activities, all your relationships – are rooted in and based on what goes on in your mind. Your beliefs and expectations determine what you try or don’t try, how hard you try, and whether you give up or ultimately succeed.

Your thoughts about who you are and what you are like determine those with whom you associate, what you take into your body and how you care for yourself and others. So if you are interested in improving your likelihood of living a long and healthy life, take a long and careful look at your belief system and spend some time examining your thoughts and values, as well.

If you don’t like what you see, remember, you can change it. You have it within you. You always have. ~The Pacific Institute

6. Looking for a summer job? Cottonwood Canyon, Deschutes Recreation Area Positions

Looking for a summer job? We have just that! Cottonwood Canyon State Park and Deschutes State Recreation Area are looking to hire multiple Park Ranger Assistants for the summer season.

Spring and summer in Oregon State Parks is the busiest time of the year, and park staff turn to their reliable Park Ranger Assistants for help. Ranger Assistants are the small-time heroes of any park operation. They use a varied skillset and a can-do attitude to get the job done, while at the same time learning valuable on-the-job skills from their Ranger peers. Please consider joining our group of dedicated, fun-loving people who are passionate about serving our visitors, protecting special places and providing great experiences.

As a Park Ranger Assistant, you will assist year-round State Park staff in the protection, maintenance, operation and repair of state park lands, natural and cultural resources, structures, facilities, equipment and systems. Park Ranger Assistants typically perform basic tasks in a single area of park operations (e.g.: janitorial work, landscape maintenance, interpretation or visitor services), although some positions will require performing tasks in a variety of areas. Some work may require the most elementary skills in building trades, including carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting and landscape maintenance. In addition, specialized skills in basic park maintenance and operations may be required. Park Ranger Assistants, on a task specific basis, may guide the work of individuals or teams composed of volunteers, seasonal, and/or temporary state park employees.

For more information, and to apply, visit the Oregon State Parks hiring page.
