As an employer, you may feel that productivity levels in your company are not as high as you’d want them to be. Maybe your employees lack confidence and motivation, or they just don’t get along better in general. Perhaps you’ve called some meetings but you can’t see any changes. If that’s the case, you may […]
Inspiration- Appreciating Others
For the past month, I have been participating in a womens’ wellness challenge. We were encouraged to set goals, but not just big lofty goals. Our goals had to be specific and measurable. It is one thing to say you want to feel more balanced in life, but how do you get there? Do […]
Inspiration – Becoming Ourselves
Hello World? Are you still there? I feel like we haven’t talked in awhile and I’ve missed you. I know you’ve been busy with all the worldly stuff and I’ve been busy trying to figure out this life balance stuff now that I have a 7 month old son. My son is doing well. He […]
Inspiration – Actionable Ideas
Yesterday I wore an old race shirt because I read about an idea on Facebook. The idea was simple. It asked runners everywhere to show their support for the Boston Marathon by wearing an old race shirt. The one I chose to wear was my first Nike Women’s Half Marathon shirt from 2005. I wear […]
Revise and Reclaim Your 2013 Goals With a Vision Board
Create a vision board to reclaim your health, fitness and overall wellness goals. I first heard about vision boarding from a former co-worker. The topic came about during a difficult and yet opportune time in my life. I had just gone through a horrible breakup that left me feeling stranded and confused. I managed […]
Catch a Healthy Attitude
Whenever my husband and I have to drive somewhere that is more than an hour, we listen to an audio book. One recent book we have been listening to is The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. The book explains why habits exist and how they can be changed. One segment of the book caught […]
Monday Inspiration – Choice and Consequence
My book club is currently reading Snow Rising by Matt Baldwin. The book is thought provoking and compelling, as the philosophy offered challenges your own personal beliefs. For example, consider today’s inspirational quote. What feelings does the quote instantly bring forth? Are they positive feelings or feelings of dread? Are you perusing choices past or […]
Have excess fruit or vegetables? Donate them to charity.
When my husband and I were looking at houses, we knew we wanted a place with a backyard. A place where I could plant a garden — in the ground. Imagine our excitement when we found our current home that came with two lemons trees, two apple trees, a plum tree, a yellow grapefruit tree, […]
Monday Inspiration – What Does Your Book of Health Look Like?
If your health were a picture book what would it look like? Be honest, would it be full of photos of everything sweet or would it be balanced with vegetables and exercise? I think mine would start with a picture of a gallon of water, and then proceed to photo of an endless road covered […]

Monday Inspiration – Hanging On
What are you still hanging on to?
Monday Inspiration – Moving difficulties forward
For me these last two weeks have been challenging and, yes, difficult. The chemistry class I am taking (which is one of four classes required to apply for a graduate program in Nutrition) has been challenging. I easily spend 15 to 20 hours a week studying for this class. As a result, I can see […]
Monday Inspiration – Albert Einstein
I’m curious about a lot of things. I’m the person who likes to ask “why”, which sometimes irritates my loved ones because I am always probing. However, once my curiosity is satiated, I move on to the next questioning bubble in my thoughts. My current curiosities have to do with breastfeeding and immunizations, which […]
Monday Inspiration – Change How You Are
Changing how we are sounds simple enough and yet many of us fall back into old routines, habits, and comforts. I know it happens to me, too. Changing how we are is changing how we think, perceive and act — from our personal health goals to whatever else we wish to change.
