With the “New Year” approaching, many of us are focusing our thoughts on making lifestyle resolutions, home improvement goals, and the like. Whether it’s tradition or a part of the conditioned mindset among the masses, we can all agree this time of the year we reflect on the past and look forward to brighter days with renewed enthusiasm for the future. Even if you’re at your “ideal weight” and have reached your health goals, there is always room for improvement. Or perhaps yo
Relax… You’ve earned it. The mad rush to finish your to-do list has ended. The ceaseless mental notes you’ve been taking can be crumpled up and thrown away. The “sugar season” is over, time to give the oven a break. Sit down, take a deep breath, and count your blessings. You survived another holiday season. It’s behind you. Now what? Will you make a list of the things you want to accomplish in the new year? Vow to go on that diet you’ve been talking about since Thanksgiving?
As a parent we know that raising a family is the most difficult and challenging job we will ever have. How many times have we said, “I could have done that better.” Or perhaps, “Why did I react in that way to my child?” We all dream or fantasize of a perfect family; one that is harmonious and loving. And while we may experience peaceful, fun times as a family, unforeseen conflicts are inevitable. Since parenting does not come with a manual and there are no universal instructi
Anyone can draw. You don’t need a pen, brush or pencil. No canvas or paper is required either. You can draw spectacular masterpieces. What’s even more spectacular is what it will do for you. If you read or stare at a computer for prolonged periods of time, work on a smart phone or pad or just generally keep your neck down a lot, you’ll love it. It’s called “nose drawing.” Sounds strange I know. I thought it was a little weird at first, being a cautious skeptic I questioned it
We have entered a new era in medicine. There is a shift of empowerment as we begin to take control over our own health and healing. The old paradigm looked at the human body as a machine; separate from the mind and spirit. The new paradigm sees the body as it is, interconnected; the mind, body, and spirit being one. From the moment we are born we’re programmed to rely on outside influences for our healing. Conventional medicine has been frightfully inadequate. For how can one
When we gathered with friends and family last week to celebrate a day of Thanksgiving I shared a bit of our daily lives as “social networkers.” “In the morning we begin with Facebook, we love to laugh and there’s always something there to enjoy.” Those of you who “Facebook” know what I’m talking about. The jokes, the heartfelt laughter, it’s a great way to start the day. As I looked around it was immediately apparent the people who understood and those who didn’t. I went on t
Success always begins with a plan. You can’t just fall into it, even if someone takes you by the hand and says here I’ve got this for you… It’s still up to you to figure out the best way for you to make the most of it. To perfect it, to make it successful. What if the plan was all laid out for you and you just had to read it and follow it? Well, here again it’s up to you. How much do you want success? ALL success begins with your mind. Whatever you believe (you can do) you wi
