Try this to stay cool as a cucumber!

The heat is on and I am definitely feeling it!  July is typically the hottest month of the year and it's not unusual to see temps well over a 100 degrees here in Tucson, but this past week temperatures in the 90's and 100's were popping up all over the country.  It is a heat wave


I did it!  I said "yes" to the invitation to attend REVITALIZE 2019 and I am so glad I did. The health and wellness event sponsored by mindbodygreen was held right here in Tucson at the Ritz Carlton.  As soon as I walked into the lobby, I could feel the energy buzzing all around me.  Everyone was

It’s time to remake a classic!

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Who doesn't love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich??  It's a classic!  When I was growing up, my version of a PB&J was two slices of Wonder bread, a layer of Skippy peanut butter (creamy not chunky) and a layer of Smuckers strawberry jelly.  Brings back memories, doesn't it?  So why mess with

What are you afraid of?

Let's face it, we all have fears.  Of course there are the obvious ones like a fear of heights or a fear of spiders but what about those fears that crop up when you are faced with everyday decisions?  Changing careers, leaving a relationship, honestly expressing your thoughts.  Have you ever wondered if your fears are holding you back from

Do you know what’s in your toothpaste??

Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your toothpaste?  I know that's probably not at the top of your "to do" list, but if you have a minute, I suggest you take a look.  If you are using a conventional toothpaste like Crest or Colgate, I think you might be shocked to see what the

Can money buy happiness?

Recently, this was the topic of conversation at a lecture I attended titled The Pursuit

Are you getting enough zzzzzz’s??

Remember when you were young and you could sleep for hours?  I know that may seem like another lifetime, but I can still remember hopping into my bed without a care in the world and sleeping like a rock all night long.  Fast forward to today and, although I can still "hop" into my bed, I'm not exactly sleeping like

Let it go….you have already won!

It finally happened!  Last Sunday was the first Nourish retreat and the day was everything I had hoped it would be.  The women who attended were extraordinary, the weather was beautiful, the energy was amazing and I think we all felt "nourished" in many ways.   Of course there were things that I want to improve on

Seasonal allergies got you down? Relief is easier than you think!

Anyone got spring fever??  I know I do.  Spring is that wonderful time of year when nature wakes up from hibernation and enters into an amazing state of renewal.  That's the good news.  The not so good news is that every tree, flower and weed releases a ton of pollen causing seasonal allergies in nearly 50 million people.  Ugh!  As the pollen
