Choose Today, One Small Change at a Time

Happy belated Easter treat, at least that is what I thought when I went to open up that special Cadbury Egg I had such great memories of. Yes I had them in the past (way in the past) and yes I saw them on TV commercials prior to the official Easter holiday (several months prior) and yes I had waited until April 15 to let myself have this special treat. You see I had been Read More

Well Being Is Heart and Soul-Make Time

I was watching the Grammy’s tonight and as with most shows they close by showing snippets of the lives of those we lost this past year. It always breaks my heart as I think of the impact they made when they were with us regardless of their age at passing and how we take things for granted, expect someone to always be there. I love the music these people created even thought I didn’t know Read More

Back on Track

This has been a week of recovery. Due to some minor surgery I have not been able to keep up my regular fitness routine and due to the extreme cold weather we are experiencing in Minnesota I have oddly enough decided to act on “bear-like” tendencies taking on extra calories and cuddling up in a fetal position on the couch laying idle as time goes by.

Wellness IS Being Grateful

What are you grateful for today? Do you rise each morning counting your blessings? If not you should, this is a time to pause, thank a higher power and send some supportive thoughts to those in need. I found myself feeling “blue” this week, no good reason  just feeling blue. So as I indulged my displacement with my world and moped around it wasn’t until I was waiting on a friend’s arrival for coffee that Read More

Conversational Health

Are you a talker or a listener? Most of us say talker, but if you did say listener is it active listening? Did you come to the conversation prepared with meaningful questions? If you are about to meet someone for the first time do your research, find out a bit about their background and what their interests are, that way you are able to find common ground to talk about. It could be as simple Read More

80/20 Rule

The 80/20 Rule, you know, take good care of your wellness 80% of the time and you won’t have to worry the other 20%. So if you eat right and move that body most of the time you will have some wiggle room to go out for pizza, have a couple cocktails at happy hour or just hang on the couch some. Seems like a simple rule. I think I may have taken it to Read More
