Earth Day is one day where we pay attention to how we use up the resources of the Earth. I would obviously like to point to the fact that we need to do this everyday. Not only are we relying on the resources of Earth, but we are also inherently dependant even if modern life has us thinking we can handle this life on our own without the support of nature. This however is a day to take the opportunity to be grateful maybe. Or at least to honor Nature for what She brings to us everyday.Read More
Spring is here...some places it feels as if it is only near. But we are feeling it. We are longing for it, we are ready for it... and we want to get our bodies ready for it too.Read More
There is a newly published study out there that drinking water does not help weight-loss because it does not burn calories... Well - They missed the point! It is the cause and effect of being dehydrated that we need to have a conversation about!Read More
Happy Valentine's and Healthy Heart MonthRead More
It sounds like it could be a song, but it also a state that we often fall into at this time of year. It can slowly creep up on us or hit us out of nowhere. It can feel like something is just not quite right or like the whole thing is just unbearable. It is winter! It might be cold where you are and that means we feel more like eating comforting foods and hibernating than getting outside or be active. Yet you might also have decided that for the new year you were going to get started on getting healthy and here you are, struggling to get to the new habits that you intended for yourself.Read More
At this time of year we tend to take stock and make promises. We look at what has not happened and promise to do it next year. Or we look at what has happened and promise to change it. We might even judge ourselves for not being good enough and promise to do and be better.
So how about this for a new perspective, for a new experience, for this New Year...?
What if...Read More
Wishing you the very very best for a lovely loving heartfelt and heart-full holiday Holiday.Read More
The Holiday Season is here...it brings a lot of both joy and also some challenges. For most being healthy is pretty much "out the window" during this time, but just consider that it might not have to be either/or...it can be more balanced and with that...more enjoyable as well.Read More
The first big Holiday is behind us, Black Friday is soon over, and now we are facing a month that is both festive and stressful.Read More
Now as much as I would wish there was a total ban the way some European countries have dealt with the issue, at this point the FDA is proposing that partially hydrogenated oils, or trans fats, are no longer able to be in the “generally considered safe” categoryRead More
Take some time here now to reflect, take note, and make some personal life choices. Even if they seem beyond health, they are not. EVERYTHING affects your healthRead More
WE CAN LOSE WEIGHT AND NOT GAIN AN OUNCE OF HEALTHRead More
Right now we are pretty much snowed in here in NYC. Stuck inside with time on your hands, instead of being busy doing the daily routines that were planned on for today: That gives us time to reflect on time with a nice cup of tea...Read More
The body knows how to heal; we need to remove what is blocking it from doing so.
When we get sick it is partly a "breaking down" and a recovery. Why would I say that? Well, getting sick is part of the healing process so to speak. We often get sick when we are overloaded and undernourished...Read More
Living life large is not always a matter of more. The simple and small things in life can add some spice. We have become so accustomed to being entertained at any moment that even the small wonders are not so wonderful anymore. We are busy and stressed and don't stop to pay mindful attention to the subtle values in life...Read More
Where did we go so wrong? We use medication to keep us going instead of food. Food is the most basic tool we have for our health. But no. We pop a pill as soon as we have an inkling of the beginning of a headache instead of asking: “why is my headache here?”Read More
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which might give some a start for more awareness around breast health. Hopefully for most it is a reminder and a time to re-commit to living with awareness every month...Read More
