7 Reasons You Should Take Time Off

Do you take time off? Do you recharge and rest? I just got back from a 4 day rest, recharge and reconnect stay at the beach and it was sorely needed. The beach always recharges the batteries of my soul and refreshes me, which is just one more reason why I need to live at […]

If You Read One Article About Following Your Dream, Read This One!

Seriously! I have thought a lot over the weekend about what it means to follow your heart and go for your dream. Whatever that dream may be, it is never too late to move forward. Several years ago, I read a profile of a woman in the now-defunct More Magazine. She reached her 50th birthday […]

How Daily Habits Form Your Life

What kind of habits are you cultivating? Seriously. Habits are just that, habits. Good habits can be formed. Bad habits can be broken. So again, what kind of habits are you cultivating? Are you cultivating healthy eating habits, or bad eating habits? Are you cultivating getting enough exercise or are you cultivating a couch potato […]

What Are You Reading?

I was on Facebook the other day and someone said they were reading 3 books simultaneously. I know, it sounds impossible and crazy and what on earth is she doing? I have a confession to make. I’m also reading multiple books. All for different reasons. I’ve blogged before that one of the first things I […]

Why 50 Is Just A Number

I’m 53 and well on my way to being 54! You know what? It doesn’t suck! Seriously, I feel exactly the same inside, as I did 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. Oh, I’ve learned lessons along the way. I’m smarter, wiser and quite frankly, heavier than I was all those years ago, but […]

Live Your Life Like An Olympian

If you’re like almost everyone else on Planet Earth, you’re catching the Olympics in Rio this week and cheering for your favorites, who are probably from your home country. Over the years as we watch these elite athletes compete for gold, we get to know them through their life stories. They are our family, our […]

The Science of Happiness

Do you ever ask yourself, what exactly is happiness? What does it mean? People have asked themselves this same question for years, but did you know there’s an actual science behind happiness? I think my first introduction to “happiness” as a science was when I read the book, “The Power of Positive Thinking” by Dr. […]

How To Find More Hours In Your Day

Want to know how to find more hours in your day? Get up earlier! No, seriously. Get up earlier. I’ll confess, since my kids have been out of school for the summer, I’ve been a slacker, relishing the ability to stay in bed and not have to get up and rush around to get them […]

Vegan Grain-Free Brownies

Want to eat a delicious guilt-free grain-free vegan brownie? Look no further! I’ll confess, I”m not a big chocolate person. I don’t get the cravings for chocolate that my husband and kids do. Given the choice between a slice of chocolate cake or chips and salsa, I’ll take the chips and salsa every time. That […]

Finding Joy in Everyday Experiences

Yesterday, I wrote about the new Pokemon Go game and why it’s become such a phenomenal success. Well, last night two of my children and I went to our downtown area where the hub of Pokemon activity is around here and I would say about 70% of the people down there were also hunting Pokemon. […]
