Give It Your All. Just Don’t Give It All Away

Share this…Do you feel over-extended? Many of us do. Eager to please and with a desire to succeed at what you set out to do, it’s easy to say “Yes” to every invitation and opportunity to meet, network, collaborate, socialize and support. Humans are naturally bonding creatures, and we want to make people happy and also feel good ourselves. But spreading yourself too thin can cause you to lose focus. And it can also impact your overall health. You don’t want to be so busy helping other people water their lawns to grow their dream garden that the grass turns brown and wilts under your […]

Five Tips To Preserve Water

Share this…I once had a playmate who had never seen running water in a home until she visited mine. Her name was Willow Faye, and she was one of my mother’s students at a special needs nursery school. Her family lived in rural Tennessee. That was the early 1960s. And yet, even today… Roughly 1.3 million Americans still don’t have hot and cold running water, a bathtub or shower or a working flush toilet. Many more don’t have clean water that’s safe to drink. At the same time, Americans that have clean, running water at home use nearly 100 gallons a day, […]

Getting Hygge With It

Share this…Just around Groundhog Day I find myself in a self-imposed winter exile. I stay home, write, read, practice yoga and eat simply. But by week’s end I usually have Saturday Night Cabin Fever and feel restless. It’s especially hard around Mardi Gras (Feb 13 this year) when I long to prance in the streets with my New Orleans pals sans heavy coat and scarf. I enviously follow friends on Facebook who are living or traveling in warmer climates snapping selfies in their sarongs and sun dresses Yes, my MOJO has FOMO (fear of missing out). That said, a recent article I read in Time Magazine says my quiet country life is The New Thing. It’s […]

Stuff Your Bird. Not Your Body. Thanksgiving Tips

Share this…Gobble this up……. The average individual consumes 3000 calories during a Thanksgiving meal. Add wine and cocktails, and this number can top 4500, according to the Calorie Control Council. That’s more than double what our daily caloric intake should be.

But, there are ways to incorporate moderation into the celebration and feel better the day after. 1. Eat lightly the day before with a focus on fresh vegetables and fiber. 2. Crunch it! Snack on an apple, sliced raw veggies or a handful […]

Seven Things You May Not Know About Breast Cancer, and Should

Share this…I am an eight-year survivor of breast cancer. Thankfully, I am healthy. When October rolls around, and the pink party starts for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I contemplate what it means to be a survivor, and I think back to when I was diagnosed and underwent a double mastectomy in September 2009, and what a mind-numbing out- of -body- experience it felt like. Your body and your life are altered forever. During October, news reports splash with the latest research, survivor stories or a celebrity revealing she has been recently diagnosed and her message to others. There are pink product promotions, pink […]

It’s Time To Clean Up the Dirty Talk

Share this…I just returned from attending EXPO East, a giant natural products convention in Baltimore. The first item I tasted was pureed baby food made from boiled, strained vegetables and fruits (but not mixed together) created by a mom (naturally). It was pretty good!  I walked the aisles tasting gut- blasting tonics, fermented juices, root based beverages, mushroom teas and numerous probiotic foods that promised to help clean out my stomach and intestines. I sipped paleo coffee mixed with butter to add “necessary fat” and sampled plenty of reduced fat foods. I nibbled on fiber rich bars and smoothies offering to “help me go.” I tasted foods promising to help […]
