I Just Want to get Back into my Jeans. Wellness Interrupted.

A funny phrase keeps coming up on my Facebook feed, conversations and during virtual networking. I hear. . . “I am so tired of eating.” At first I thought, what in the world does this mean?

Seems in the sameness of the days from instructed safety social isolation and the lack of stores, restaurants and places to go Read More

Social Distancing & Personal Hygiene

Naturally I checked Facebook to see if anyone else was thinking what I was thinking and there it was in the first post i read “. . . I haven’t showered for three days now, I think I am fine.

Clearing the Kitchen Clutter, what are you going to do with all that STUFF in your kitchen?

What happened to that nice counter you used to work on to prepare meals? Has it become a “storage location”, a “dumping ground”, a “I’ll get back to it if I see it” place to rest things? Just because it is a nice flat surface does not designate it to be your special place for clutter and miscellaneous items and to dos. You know everyone can see it AND it does make for healthy meal Read More

Do You Want it, I Mean Enough to Keep the Commitment?

Back in grade school, then  junior high school and the first couple of years of high school I was in the band. It was so much fun learning to play the flute.

Yes, practice for what I really wanted Read More

Personal Wellness IS Your Corporate Wellness

When you think back those years ago, what did you want to be when you grew up? Some say teacher, doctor, fireman, you know just about anything was possible. As you grew and discovered things about yourself how did your vision change?  We all had fun dreaming and spending our days living in the moment and the moment was good. Fast forward to today, what are your dreams now? Are you a teacher, doctor or Read More

Can You Catch Sleep?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could literally “catch” sleep! I mean you can catch a ball, you can catch a cold, you can catch the flu. Seriously why can’t you catch sleep!! There are many articles you can read on how to get a good night’s sleep and the pros and cons of what you eat, read, listen to and even the lighting prior to bedtime. I have an entire presentation on “Sleep Disruptors”.  Read More

What Are You Good At?

When I was in 4th grade the big game on the playground was marbles. You know, shooters, cat eyes, steelies, etc. and I thought I was GOOD. Actually darn good, yes, better than most I had seen. So after a few rounds in the house with my sisters I was sure I had what it took and would rule the playground. The first day or two I watched the other kids “play” marbles and watched Read More
