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

Hey Baby It’s Chilly/Rainy/Dark Outside!

Indoor Workouts You Can Do When The Season Changes During the long, warm summer days, nothing is as enjoyable as an outdoor run in the sunshine, taking a dip in the local pool or rolling out your yoga mat in your favorite local park. But when the Autumn breeze starts blowing, the days get shorter, temperatures drop or the rain starts to pitter patter, we have to get creative and intentional about indoor workouts to get us through the upcoming months.

Everyone Should Raise a Little Kale Now and Then

This year the end of winter and beginning of spring had a bit of a tug of war. The bickering between the seasons prolonged the kale harvest which was a bit of a gift. However, last week with the kale beginning bolt, I knew that I had to harvest the leaves and begin the preserving process. 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.

The Hamster Wheel of Dieting

Dieting. That one word can cause anxiety levels and blood pressures to rise. Many of us go on multiple diets every year, and many of us have rules about diets. Here are some examples: a. We can only begin a diet on a Monday. b. Eating a cookie early in the day ruins the whole diet, so we eat the whole bag of cookies. c. A diet will fix what is "wrong", and after the diet we can go back to our "normal" way of eating. d. Two weeks is enough time to lose 10 pounds. The rules we create in our minds rarely, if ever, mesh with the results of the diet or with the needs of our body. As a result, we become stuck on the hamster wheel of dieting. If you have ever found yourself thinking any one of these things, or something similar, then read on. Read More

Summon Your Strength, It's Time To Grocery Shop...

My goal was a simple one. I would run into the grocery store, pick up some almond milk and head home. In my mind it would be a five minute trip at the most, and that was just about all the time I had for this errand. Almond milk would be perfect for my morning smoothies and would help me with my experiment of eliminating dairy from my diet. However, nothing about grocery shopping these days is quite that easy. As I approached the refrigerated section of the store, I could feel the beads of sweat forming on my forehead. Too many almond milk products loomed before me.... Read More
