Posted by:

I believe that the reason most New Year’s resolutions have failed for me have been because my goals have been unrealistic. I too have been caught up in the fast and furious New Year’s endeavors of joining the health club with lofty goals of weight management along with the overachievers club regarding the overwhelming all day projects that surround many of us.

I’ve also been an active member of the avoidance and procrastination clubs. They just don’t work. But I have ...

Posted by:

Ellen Galinsky, the head of the Families and Work Institute and author of “Mind in the Making” asked children in 1,000 U.S. families, “If you were granted one wish about your parents, what would it be?” Most parents predicted their kids would say spending more time with them. The results of the survey may come as a surprise for many of you. They were an eye opener for me.

The Perils of Parabens!

Posted by:

It is a fact that 60 percent of whatever we put on our skin goes into our bloodstream.

Sixteen years ago, following nine months of breast cancer treatment, I attended a weekend retreat sponsored by Natural Health Magazine.

Cleaning Products in Your Home

Posted by:

One of the first areas I explored after my cancer diagnosis was the cleaning products I was using. Years ago I thought I was being a super mom in that I was keeping a really clean house.
