How many times have you said to yourself that you’re going to do something but you end up not following through with it because you weren’t motivated enough? You end up checking off that workout, or call to a friend, visit or shopping trip off your to-do list without even getting close to completing it….

DR. MICHELLE BRAUDE – FOOD AND THE EFFECTS ON YOU…

If you read more than one blog a day or listen to almost any podcast, you’ll recognize this name. The first thing I recall thinking when first I heard her was “she is SO reasonable.” Dr. Braude is, of course, a physician. She is also an author (The Food Effect) and, wildly popular expert on…

THE BUBBLE CURE …

My first sip of this magical potion came in 1967. I was 12 and our family was having dinner at a favorite restaurant ( spot on repeat with my tribe weekly until Jean-Jacque finally closed in the 80’s). My dad LOVED, LOVED, LOVED “magic bubble water” and that is exactly how I referred to it…

DON’T STOP … JUST BECAUSE OF YOUR “NUMBER”!

I was chatting with my mother recently and inquired about one of her favorite things… reading. I don’t mean occasional magazine or a quick once-through of the newspaper. The woman was a reading machine back in the day. My entire family reads and I chalk it up to the fact that both of my parents…

It’s been my thought that some people are more “cut out” for exercise than others. At school there were those who loved sports and those who would come up with incredible excuses to get out of it. The same is true today. I know soooo many women who talk endlessly about getting into shape……and, are…

THE MONSTER IN THE CLOSET…

Not all of the fears we have are as cute as these little guys…… We’ve all lived with change and uncertainty our entire lives; in fact it is one of life’s few consistencies. You would think we would expect it by this stage of our lives, right? Not so much. Knowing we are all human…

SUCCESS & HAPPINESS RECIPE

I don’t know what your exposure to goal-setting and strategic planning was growing up but, I had the good fortune of a daddy (we never outgrow it…..EVER, right?) that thought I should know how to read the Wall Street Journal and plan for ultimate world takeover. So, we spent a lot of time chatting about…

WELLNESS BEERS ARE A THING!

Have you heard of ‘wellness beers’? The e-newsletter Lorem Ipsum brought them to my attention. These beers are brewed with sea salts and electrolytes to (loosely) resemble sports drinks (Gatorade), as a so-called healthier way to enjoy a post-workout beer. Just as I was about to get on my soap box and talk about recovering from, rather than with, beers, I…

5 STEPS TO HAPPINESS.

Exerpted from The Journal of Psychology Happiness is such an interesting thing, because we all have different ideas about what it is and how to get it. It’s also no surprise that it’s the number one point of interest for RJI readers. So, of course, I am obsessed with the topic. I would love to…
