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.

New Years is here and I'm continuing my tradition of choosing a word for the coming year, to inspire me, instead of a resolution. My word this last year was FEARLESS and I used it as a personal theme. I was pretty fearless in my choices and went for things. My word for 2015 is … Continue reading Have you chosen your word for 2015?

Personal care products can include: toothpaste, deodorant, aftershave, shaving cream, moisturizer, shampoo/conditioner, hairspray, mouthwash, gel, lotion, perfume/cologne…you get it.

Coffee Alternatives

Coffee has been around for ages and we all know its alluring smell, it’s fresh, hot taste and the donkey breath we get after drinking it. It is highly acidic to our bodies and unfortunately, a large number of people “can’t wake up” without it. What if you’re not into it? You don’t believe the … Continue reading Coffee Alternatives
