No mud…No Lotus

Happy New Year, my friend.  How are you feeling as you begin your journey into 2021?  Are you feeling relieved that 2020 is finally over?  Are you filled with hope for what the new year will bring?  Or, like me, are you feeling completely exhausted from a year that has tested you in so many ways?  Wherever you find yourself on

Cinnamon spice makes everything nice!

I love, love, love cinnamon.  Even as a kid, I loved cinnamon.  In fact, one of my all time favorite comfort foods when I was growing up was warm toast with melted butter and lots (I mean lots) of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top.  The cinnamon/sugar combo would melt into the butter and, oh my was soooo

Lessons from Narwhal

The other day I was scrolling through my emails and came across this surprisingly sweet video about Narwhal, an absolutely adorable puppy who looks a little, shall we say, "different."  You'll know what I mean when you watch the video. The first time I watched the video, I was so busy looking at this little guy that I missed the underlying message completely.  It wasn't

I’m filled with gratitude!

Today is about giving thanks and I want to thank YOU. Thank you for being a part of my life and for allowing me to guide you on your healing journey.  I could not do what I do without your love and support and for that I am truly grateful. As we celebrate this day of giving thanks,

Feeling stressed? Try this! about a stressful month!  First we had the elections (no shortage of stress there), next we heard the reports of an increase in Covid cases and on top of all that, the holiday season starts next week.....yikes! Let's face it, these days life feels pretty stressful.  And when you are feeling stressed or anxious, one of the first things that changes

It’s pumpkin time!

It's official......pumpkin season is here and I am loving it!  I just bought my pumpkins last weekend and, although I have not carved a pumpkin in a really long time, I'm thinking this might be the year to bring back that tradition.  It could be really fun as long as I don't carve my fingers in the

Tis the season for apples!

If I had to pick one season, I would have to say that Fall is definitely my favorite time of year.  The smell of the cool, crisp air, the sight of the leaves changing color, the warmth of my favorite sweater and, last but certainly not least, the taste of the harvest produce making its way to the farmers market.

Bounce your way to better immunity!

Your immune system is an amazing mechanism designed to protect you from viruses, bacteria and toxins.  So it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway), in order to maintain optimal health, you must have a strong immune system. We know that healthy lifestyle choices like eating lots of fruits and vegetables, reducing stress, exercising and getting good

This stopped me in my tracks!

There is something so magical about being out in nature and this past weekend was no exception.  As I headed out on an early morning bike ride last Sunday, I spotted this herd of elk and it literally stopped me in my tracks! Watching these beautiful animals quietly graze in this field of grass was like a morning

And on the seventh day SHE RESTED!

Everybody needs to rest.  It is absolutely essential for a healthy, balanced life.  Yet, when you ask people if they would intentionally set aside time to rest, most will tell you they are just too darn busy.  While that may be true, if you could, would you take the time to rest? In today's world, there is an underlying
