How Are You Partnering with Life? Make a New Beginning

I know you’ve heard that everything is changing all the time, change happens, and there is nothing but change. But, many people are fairly resistant to change. So, here’s another way of looking at it.  Change is life being rejuvenated in every moment. Or, change is you being rejuvenated in every moment. Yes, you have

Calming Rituals for the Holidays

Do you think of “calm” and “holidays” in the same sentence? Probably not. In fact, often the holiday season becomes filled with obligations, unmet expectations and stressful demands.

Re-energize Your Body with Mindful Eating

Mindless eating happens when you are busy, distracted, stressed, in a hurry, sad, angry, impatient, lonely, happy, and when food just happens to be around.
