Is Your Path Covered In Leaves?

I promise you that in this photograph there is a driveway, although right now it is just a bit obscured by the falling leaves of the season.  While I was looking at the leaf strewn driveway the other day, part of me was thinking about how pretty it looked meandering through the woods, and part of me was fretting over the work that would have to be done to make the driveway clear and safe to travel.     And that's when it hit me... my leaf covered driveway was the perfect symbol for how the paths to our goals often get "fuzzy", "obscured", "covered" and sometimes even completely "hidden".  Read More

Let It Be Treat and Not Trick!

The witching hour is almost here, little goblins may soon grace your doorway, and the holidays are just around the bend!  It is a special and exciting time, but it can sometimes cause us to get on the wrong path with our eating habits. Just one little treat from the Halloween basket and the trip down the path to eating 2 months of sugary foods suddenly begins.  Many of us have been there and done that, and as tasty as holiday tidings are, they leave us feeling a little less on track with our goals than we'd like. That's when the resolution making begins.  Sound vaguely familiar?  But what if I told you that there is a different path you can travel over these next few wonderful, busy and tasty months?  You can choose a new path and still enjoy every bit of the holiday season.    Read More

Why Beautycounter?

I often get asked about "why" I have chosen to be a part of the Beautycounter movement while also being a Health Coach.  Why would I choose to "sell makeup and skin care"?  And so I have decided to share some of my thoughts with you.  Read More

A Series of Prescriptions #4 — You ARE what you eat...

Nourish, nourishment, nutrition — three words that should have fairly simple definitions, and yet I personally struggle with their meanings more and more.  I often find myself wondering what these words actually mean.  We have “nutrition labeling” on almost all food products that are meant to provide information about the nutrition that is to be found in that product broken down into percentages of fat, protein, carbohydrates, sugars, sodium and a variety of vitamins.  And labels seem to scream out at me from every shelf and aisle in every store about “organic”,  "naturally flavored”, “gluten free”, “low fat”, “non fat”, “low carb”, “unsweetened”, “no added sugars”, “no artificial sweeteners” until I find myself turning all of the noise off and wandering around the store in utter confusion not knowing what actually is good for me, not knowing which foods will actually nourish me, and wondering just how things became so crazy and complicated....

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

A Series of Prescriptions

I’ve been reflecting a lot on my role as a holistic health coach and the path that lead me here.  Part of that path involved chronic daily pain, and oddly enough I am grateful for what that part of the journey taught me.  Without it, I am not sure I would be practicing a profession I love and connecting with amazing people who are seeking to heal and nurture health holistically.  Now it may sound a little odd to express gratitude for the journey of chronic pain.  But if you see your life challenges as opportunities to learn a lesson for your spirit, to glean understanding, to garner strength and knowledge then it is only logical that gratitude will well up in response....

Lesson of the Red Crayon

...Whenever we are trying to make lifestyle changes to support our health and life/work balance simply telling ourselves  to “eat healthy” or “exercise more” is too big of a task, and the overwhelm of seeing the huge task looming before us gets us stuck.  What exactly does “eat healthy” mean?  What does “exercise more” look like?  And how exactly do I “manage stress”. ....

Tips for Clean Eating

The holidays are over and the new year is among us.  A special and exciting time where we make ambitious plans for our next twelve months and dream of the possibilities.  The most popular resolution is improving health, and we usually are quite ready after the holidays.  As tasty as the holiday tidings are, they leave us feeling a little less on track with our goals than we'd like.  Those new healthy resolutions don't have to be complicated, and they don't have to end before February even arrives.  The key to looking and feeling your best is to keep it uncomplicated and simply focus on clean eating.  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
