My secret to health & happiness…

I’m going to share a little secret with you… But, first, I’m going to explain this pic. This past July, I was attending my summer residency in Boston (for my Master’s program in Mindfulness Studies.) While in class, we were discussing perceptions – specifically – how the wise teachings of the Buddha frame perceptions and mental constructs (after all, if... Read More

Why is it so hard to start new, healthy habits?

It’s mid-July already. That said, I actually want you to check in with yourself. How are you feeling? I mean, how do you honestly feel? Are you feeling vibrant and happy? Or are you shocked, and a bit stressed and sad, that another summer is speeding by and you still haven’t prioritized your health + wellness (like you promised yourself... Read More

“Ice cream” for lunch!

Happy Monday! I just had to share my “ice cream” lunch today because it really brightened my Monday! Not only is this version healthy and oh so yummy, it’s super fun to have a mid-day summer icy treat! Here’s my version of “ice cream:” * 1 ripe banana (organic) * 1 tbsp of all natural peanut butter (organic) * 1 tsp of... Read More

Are you stressed more than you’re happy?

Wow, what a couple of weeks mom Candace Payne had! More than 150 million people around the world laughed (and cried!) with her as she tested out her new Star Wars Chewbacca mask in the parking lot of a Kohl’s, where she purchased the toy (and filmed the video response that went viral!) Let’s consider why her Facebook video captured... Read More

Do you stay the course or do you quit?

Let’s talk about how easy it is to get off track. The simple fact of the matter is that everyone (You! Me! All of us!) will inevitability become momentarily derailed from reaching our health and life goals at one point or another. And, this is precisely the moment many of us give up or quit. It’s often said that starting... Read More

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! …Wanted to post a quick thought today as we head into our weekends!  Where will your heart lead you this weekend? We spend too much time questioning what’s in our heart. If it’s there, it’s there for a reason. Listen to what you feel. Use your energy to figure out HOW to do it—not resist it (it takes... Read More

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sending you all thoughts of pastel-colored, heart-shaped candies, pretty red and pink flowers, and lots of love this Valentine’s Day. (I hope you celebrate YOU this weekend.) I do have to admit, though, I’ve always had mixed feelings about this particular holiday. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re fortunate enough to be sharing your life at the moment with someone special...

Do You Struggle with Committment?

I hope you’re having a wonderful (HIGH VIBE!) start to 2016! In fact, let me know about any goals — big or small! — you’re working on this year. (I LOVE to hear from you!) And, since we’re on the topic of 2016 goals, I wanted to share one of my big ones with you. As most of you know... Read More

Why Diets Don’t Work…

I received an email this week from one of my High Vibers (a.k.a. a client!) telling me she was finally able to put on the pair of jeans she had purchased 5 years ago, but was never actually able to wear (until now). Here’s the exciting part — we’re only in our third month of working together! Now, weight loss... Read More

Jumping in Feet First, Scorpions and All…

I’m going to start by saying the particular scorpions (of which I’ll talk about in just one sec) are not lethal. In fact, the locals (I was in Nicaragua) suggest you drink a really strong cup of black coffee to dilate the blood vessels and get the venom moving quickly out of your system should you have the misfortune of...
