Shine A Light- One Simple Step Can Brighten a Day

Make the Call. Take the Call. It matters. #fearlessfabulousyou Remember the song “Reach Out and Touch Somebody’s Hand.” It was the debut song for Diana Ross when she left The Supremes and struck out on her own. And it was a huge hit. Remember when  AT&T had a campaign called “Reach out and touch someone” in 1979? Now how many of us actually reach out and call anyone these days? Most people send text messages, post comments on social media or send emails. The days of picking up the phone or sending a handwritten note have gone the way of the typewriter. My phone, […]

Endocrine Disruptors: What You Should Know

You may have heard “endocrine disruptors” mentioned in association with certain cancers, like breast cancer. But do you know what they are and where they lurk in your food, home and personal care products? And do you know why it matters to your health? Endocrine disruptors are industrial chemicals used in herbicides, pesticides, detergents, children’s toys, plastic bottles, metal food cans, flame retardent products and personal care products including cosmetics.

Fabulous Finds for Your Skin

 Yes, I Dew! I’m lucky. People send me interesting products to taste, sip, apply and try. Many don’t quite past muster, but when they do, I enjoy sharing them. Since I just wrote about thick skin, this one seemed kind of appropriate. I may have thick skin, but it’s also super sensitive when it comes to scrubs and other exfoliants. I want to keep my skin smooth, but most scrubs are just too abrasive! That’s why I like the Dew Puff Original Konjac Sponge -a 100% natural konjac root plant fiber sponge. Konjac root is known as “elephant yam” in Japanese. Just add […]

Why Thick Skin Matters at Any Age

Thick Skin. Thin Body. Here’s my healthy top for the week: Maintain a thin body and thick skin. The former will help reduce your risk for several major illnesses including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and stroke, diabetes, back and hip problems and certain cancers (just to name a few examples). The latter will protect you against mental erosion and self- esteem sabotage. Thick skin will protect you against ageism, sexism and all sorts of discrimination you may face in life. It will keep you centered when doors slam in your face and you face a thousand “No’s” before finally hearing “Yes.” It will […]

All Rise!

Sometimes it takes reaching your lowest point to rebuild the foundation to rise up and resolve what lies in front of you. Many of us have been there. You can continue to spiral downward or steer yourself to reverse the course. Seek help and build a support system. Everyone could use guidance, even the counselors and coaches who guide others. But, at the end of the day, it is up to you. I continue to be amazed and inspired by women who have turned their lives around and who are willing to share their gritty stories to help others realize […]

Decoding Imposter Syndrome

Where There Is Help There Is Hope

This week, I breathed two sighs. One of Hope and one of Sadness. And I think many other women did as well. Hope is because a new study came out stating that many women with early stage breast cancer may no longer need to undergo chemotherapy treatment. As with all studies, there are particulars, such as the cancer cannot have spread to the lymph nodes and the patients had to be sensitive to estrogen and negative for the protein HER2. This is a major advancement for the approximately 260,000 women diagnosed with  breast cancer each year.  In The New York Times article, “The findings […]

Want to Change Your Life? Change Your Habits

The main reason diets don’t work is people don’t stick to them. It’s a commitment. Your relationship to food is more than about what you eat. It’s emotional. Many of us eat and drink to nurture our spirit as much as to nourish our bodies. Maybe it’s time to change your behavior and not just your diet. That’s one of the many messages from Dr. Deena Solomon, who tackles weight loss from a cognitive behavioral perspective- aka “retrain the brain.” www.drdeenasolomon.com Dr. Solomon says, “While others view food as an addiction, and overeating as a disease that must be cured, I see eating […]
