A Series of Prescriptions #3 -- Sounds of Silence

So far you have been prescribed daily doses of gratitude and movement.  This week’s prescription is all about silence and stillness.  It might seem odd since you recently received a prescription that told you to get up and move, that you are now being asked to practice being still and silent, but bear with me and you will soon see how the pieces all begin to fall into place.   We live in a very noisy world.  For the most part, no matter where we go we are surrounded with noise and movement of all kinds. All of our senses are bombarded on a pretty constant basis with lights, noise, and motion which our incredible brains somehow process and make sense of in order for us to make informed choices.  However, all of that input into our very sensory bodies can really make our brains feel a little overwhelmed and a bit overly noisy itself.  Read More

A Series of Prescriptions Part 2:  A Body In Motion…

I hope you did well with last week’s prescription!   This week’s focus will be on movement.  All living things move, grow and change,  and we, dear friends, are meant to do the same.  And while the focus of this week’s prescription will be on physical movement, always remember that as living beings we are intended to move emotionally, cognitively and spiritually as well.  No matter what our age, movement in all its variations should be a part of the daily health care that we practice in order to live our lives expansively. Spend just a moment sitting outside watching nature.  Be as still and quiet as you can.   At first it may appear as if everything is as still as you are, but as your eyes settle and your brain slows down you will begin to see the constant dance of movement in front of you.  Read More

How to Prevent Stress Eating During the Holidays

The holidays can be a great time of joy for many. But along with the joy there is sometimes a bit of added stress and anxiety. Even for those that love the family get-togethers, the stress of holiday shopping, added financial pressure, and hosting relatives can cause those cravings for sugar and carbs to increase. Read More

Grounding Is Not Just for Wires

Autumn has arrived, and for many that means the busy back-to-school season that's quickly met with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, collides into one fast moving train.  If you're anything like me, this last part of the year flies by in a wink.  Because of this, it can feel like a time where your out of control schedule is controlling you.  Read More

Stuck in Place

Do you have those areas in your house that you walk past every day but rarely see?  I have just such a place by my backdoor.  I go in and out of that door countless times a day, but rarely do I "see" the things stored on the shelves just beside the door on the porch.  The collection of shoes, gardening tools, treasures from nature lay in a hodgepodge type of organization.  If I need my clippers I know exactly where they are; however, to the untrained eye, finding my clippers would involve a 15-minute search. One day this past week, as I was coming into the house, something in the hodgepodge of belongings looked odd. Read More

Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Recently we were lucky enough to escape our daily routine and go on a cruise. This was a last minute kind of vacation — go online, find something reasonable on a date we could escape and click “Book”. Not only did we really need a vacation, we also really needed to live differently on this vacation. We needed to find opportunities to be out of our comfort zones and stick with it. We needed to spend the week being in the moment. We needed to allow ourselves time to just be — no schedule, no expectations, no checklist, no bucket list hanging around our necks pulling us down.

Pushing the Gardening Envelope

Last fall we decided to try to grow greens all winter. We had both successes and failures. Kale, spinach and daikon radishes did well. Kohlrabi, beets, broccoli rabe and arugula did not fair well. Most likely the veggies that did not thrive struggled because of sowing seeds too late. We did not sow seed until mid/late September. This year we decided to get an earlier start, late August, and added a new comer to the fall/winter garden — saffron. Yes, you are reading correctly, we decided to try to grow and harvest our own saffron — that wonderful spice of delicate red threads that adds flavor to breads, rice and so many other dishes.
