Intentions for 2018

Happy New Year! I always pick a word for each new year, as my focus and I set my intentions around that word. This year my word is LOVE. In all ways, shapes and forms. xoxo Heather


How I stay sane

Let me start by saying it takes effort. It takes conscious intention but it isn't "work" once you develop habits around living this way. Also, don't shoot for perfection — it's not real. I learned LOTS about living the right way when I had cancer. I prayed and meditated my way through that whole year … Continue reading How I stay sane

The stress solution

Is there such a thing? I think there can be but it takes work. We just don't live in the same world we did 25 years ago. Things are a bit crazy now.

Say what?! Funky chemicals and how to avoid them.

Ladies/Gents: This is a topic I have been dying to write about. How many personal care products do men & women use on average every day? It’s around 4-12 depending on the person. Personal care products can include: toothpaste, deodorant, aftershave, shaving cream, moisturizer, shampoo/conditioner, hairspray, mouthwash, gel, lotion, perfume/cologne…you get it. But it also … Continue reading Say what?! Funky chemicals and how to avoid them.

Healthy Sunscreen

Hey all! In warm and hot weather, what type of sun protection you will be using? Are you going to use sun protective clothing and stay out of the sun? Will you use physical sunscreen? Fresh fruits and vegetables like watermelon, pineapple, raspberries, and yellow/orange bell peppers are FULL of antioxidants which are protective molecules … Continue reading Healthy Sunscreen
