Ask a wealthy person who is suffering from poor health, and they'll tell you that they would trade any of it to feel better. Your health is your most valuable asset while you are … Continue reading Health
And, for goodness sake, take the time to rest. It's what every intelligent being knows is necessary for health and survival. So, be intelligent. Rest when you're tired.
I don't think we were ever supposed to stare our miraculous eyes at these radiating screens for hours upon hours every day. It's no wonder we're all tired and cranky, with headaches. Rest your eyes. Pull them away from the screens every so often, and give them a rest. After all, you can always replace … Continue reading Rest Your Eyes
Remember to take care of yourself and recharge your batteries, so to speak. Eat healthy food, drink plenty of water, exercise, get a bit of sunlight, and definitely prioritize good sleep. We certainly recharge the batteries of those devices we can't seem to live without. The same should apply to our bodies and minds. Because … Continue reading Recharge
Luckily, we don't have to think about breathing all the time, because our body graciously takes care of that automatically. But, we can sure screw up the process with bad habits, and lots of stress. If we're not careful, we can end up only taking short, skimpy breaths, when really the whole system requires log, … Continue reading Deep Breaths
Your well-being is up to you, because you are the best person to know exactly what your well-being requires. Honor that responsibility. Revel in that power. Cherish your well-being. Be an active advocate for it. And respect others in their own journey with well-being.
Rest doesn't need to be thought of as a luxury, or even as a therapy. Rest is vital and should be thought of as a natural necessity. Stop thinking of rest as an afterthought, or as a reward. Start realizing that you need to rest more than you need to tackle your inbox and to-do … Continue reading Rest

Life is not a zero sum game, where there is only so much to go around. There is not some finite reservoir of "success" and "health" that gets depleted each time someone else gets a bit of it. So, why do we all get jealous of other's accomplishments as if their achievements take away from … Continue reading Zero Sum
Most of us get so wrapped up in stressing over hundreds of other little life things, that we don't even give our health a second thought. We're the lucky ones. Those who have serious health concerns would love to be able to worry about anything else. Don't take your good health for granted. Take care … Continue reading Health
Health is something we should all value and invest in while we have it. Too many people don't realize the value of good health until it's gone. Too many people treat their health as if it's always going to hold up no matter how much they neglect it. Our health is a gift that should … Continue reading Health
The goal for me is not to live a long time, necessarily, but to feel really good about living for as long as possible. What's the point in getting to be 110 years old, if you're mostly incapacitated, and perpetually agitated? The goal shouldn't be to stay alive for as long as possible at all … Continue reading Good Living
Drink more water. After all, we're supposedly made up of about 60% of the stuff, so it just makes good sense to keep up with replenishing it and hydrating. Our blood is actually something like 90% water, and we need that stuff to be healthy and fluid for the whole bodily system to run correctly. … Continue reading Hydrate
It seems logical that we should love our bodies, every inch of them, since they're the thing that we have to work with as we navigate life on planet earth. Of course it seems logical to love our bodies, but that's not what the advertisers and drug companies want us to do. They want us … Continue reading Love First
Isn't it amazing that there is some force that cares so much about us that it makes sure we breathe regularly, our hearts beat, and that our blood circulates, supplying the energy needed throughout every area of our body? Isn't it amazing that this is all taken care of for us seamlessly, so we can … Continue reading Amazing
I'm no doctor, but I know that there is a force running through us that is ultimately responsible for our health and healing. It's the same force that sparks life into us from the start. Doctors are most definitely needed, but the best of them know that they are there to brilliantly help create the … Continue reading A Joyful Heart
The older I get, the more I'm mindful to follow the adage to live each day as if it was your last. To be present, enjoying the moments as they come, and to not take things for granted. To drop the troubled stories of the past, and the worries of the future. But I also … Continue reading Reverence

We grow from discomfort. We might prefer to always stay comfortable, but comfort can lead to stagnation which stops any kind of growth. And if we're not growing we're dying. Building strong muscles and a tight waistline comes from pushing past your comfort zone, lifting heavy weights, and breaking a sweat. Building new professional skills … Continue reading Grow Through It
Louise Hay was a wonderful author and teacher. One of my favorite books of hers, You Can Heal Your Life, has this ingenious index, where she lists common ailments you may suffer from, along with the underlying emotional cause of each particular "dis-ease." And then she offers a new thought pattern to practice and encourage … Continue reading Listen and Tune in.
In a zoom meeting this week, we touched on the fact that sometimes you just want to veg out and do nothing, rather than face all the challenges coming up in navigating these uncertain times, while still hoping to achieve professional goals. Our coach, the meeting lead - ever the motivator - reminded us that … Continue reading Each and Every Day
A bright spot during this uneasy time of social distancing / self quarantines, and one of my favorite things to see, are the pets that seem overjoyed to have their fitness people around all day filming at-home workouts. These cute doggies and cats can't help but participate as their person is all over their turf, … Continue reading Their turf
