Nearly Half the People Who Use This Ditch Their Meds..

I came across a few articles recently that I felt would be great to share with you. The first one was kind of a shocker.  In a good way.  It describes a survey that was done on 2400 people who regularly consume a plant extract called Cannabidiol (CBD).  Most of the users reported that they used it primarily for relief of pain, anxiety, depression or insomnia.  Amazingly, 80 percent said it was "very or extremely effective" and 42% reported that they no longer needed their traditional...

Brain Power Measurably Increases When You Do This

Here in paradise (a.k.a. Sarasota), we've had a cold (for us), rainy and very overcast day.  The silver lining is that it truly was a perfect day for staying indoors and catching up on "stuff." My day included some of that.  Some tidying up, some reading, and eventually a trip to the gym for a full on workout, for which I was somewhat overdue. Ahh, it felt so good.  I started by doing long stride walks on the treadmill to open up my hips, my spine and...

This Will Help Move You Closer to Where You Want to Be

Last night I did something fun.  Not fun in the "traditional sense" of the word, but something fun for the part of me that loves to dream exciting dreams, go on adventures, and experience newness in all areas of my life on a consistent basis. Last night I sat down and left my mind completely open to ideas of what I'd like to see happen in my life in 2019.  Any and every exciting and compelling idea was quickly written down and prayed over.  I got motivated...

Want to Wake Up Excited Every Day? This Helps…

I sure do love this time of year, don't you? We're coming off of some beautiful holidays where we've celebrated some amazing miracles, and now we get to count down to the beginning of a new year.  So fun! Being that we are less than 36 hours from 2019, I would be remiss not to say something about New Years Resolutions.   Studies show that health related goals often top peoples list, and this year it should be no different. The act of making a resolution or a goal can change...

Can 70 Really Be the New 40?

The other day I was at the gym and I happened to catch a few minutes of a news story on The Today Show.  It was fitting that I saw it while doing fitness training because the story was about exercise. The anchors were discussing a new study that showed that people in their 70's who have exercised regularly for decades have the heart, lung and muscle health of people in their 40's.  How cool is that?! Check out this article written about the study-  Read more

I Have a Confession to Make

The other night, as I do from time to time, I was reviewing some pages on my website.  As I was reading the page entitled "What Others Are Saying" (which is full of various clients' success stories from over the years), I had mixed feelings. Yes I'll admit, it was personally edifying to remind myself of these amazing (and in some cases miraculous) stories, but as I did I began thinking about what happened to some of those people after those comments were made....

How to Keep An Attitude of Gratitude

Most of us have heard that being grateful is good for our mood and for our health.  Despite this knowledge, most of us struggle to stay grateful through all of life's situations.  Can you relate to that? The secret to gratitude is realizing that it is really nothing more than an attitude.  An attitude is "a settled way of thinking or feeling" and it is something that is very much changeable.  In order for our attitude to change though, we must first be willing to change...

Saying This One Word Can Boost Your Mood By Up to 25%

I read an interesting article the other day about the power of gratitude, so in the spirit of Thanksgiving I figured I'd send it to you.  I've copied it below. "Thanks for reading this. Ah, that feels so good to say. And there’s a reason: It turns out that saying “thank you” (or simply “thanks”)—or expressing gratitude by any other means—can provide an immediate, gratifying, and even sustained boost of happiness. The research comes from Martin Seligman, Ph.D., the director of the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and the author...
