Kids and Holiday Anxiety

Posted by:

Holidays are great fun, but let’s face it, don’t we all experience some level of sensory overload and/or anxiety during this time? There’s an overabundance of activities, sugary and not-so-healthy foods, parties, decorations, travel and extra time with family and friends. Tough for adults to manage but how can we help our little ones through to avoid hyperactivity and/or meltdowns?

Over a period of a few weeks, their still-developing brains are suddenly exposed to extra crowds, noise, tree lights, and more ...

Why are Autoimmune Disorders Rising for Women?

Posted by:

Did you know that 80% of people with autoimmune disorders are female? Did you know that digestive issues, headaches, low energy and even eczema can be early signs of an autoimmune disorder? What’s that, you say?

Thank you, Martin Ginsburg!

Posted by:

In the spirit of authenticity and honesty, it’s time to fess up. I have a major obsession… Cookbooks! I LOVE to cook and I LOVE good, healthy food that I can share with family and friends. It’s October, and everywhere I go, every magazine and cookbook is front and center presenting a new temptation.

It’s REALLY hard for me to NOT buy a cookbook (whether new or used), especially when these titles and book covers are staring me in the face:

  • “Small ...

Musings on Spring Delights!

Posted by:

When the leaves burst forth and I can enjoy tulips on our breakfast table for next to nothing in cost, I am ready for SPRING! I cherish colors in the garden and eagerly await our first farmer’s market opening (we live in Colorado so we don’t get to enjoy the year round markets of other states). I’m a sucker for new cookbooks bursting with visuals that get my mouth watering. I’m ready for new adventures outside that take me out ...

Women’s Hormones: A Delicate Balancing Act

This is the first of a two-part series on Women’s Hormones, for Part 2, click here.

Show me a woman who sleeps soundly eight hours every night, has a high libido, hasn’t gained weight in years (with proper diet), is emotionally stable 24/7/365, doesn’t experience bloating or any mild depression and whose brain is as sharp as a tack, and I’ll show you a woman with perfectly balanced hormones. (And, I’ll sell you some swampland in Florida!)

Okay, so none of us ...

The Power of Two – Intention & Change

Posted by:

I wrote about “The Power of Two” last January as an exercise in de-cluttering, intended to reduce the crush of feeling overwhelmed. Many of us dread home projects because they can loom so large in our minds. Truth is, many times they are large. My daily mantra for the past year has been “the power of two, the power of two,” in helping me find empowerment, accomplishment and change in my daily actions ...
