Energy ALL Day!

Competent & Confident

What we learn with pleasure we never forget. -Alfred Mercier How confident and competent you feel in doing a task will determine how easy or hard that task is for you. Maybe you’re thinking, “Okay… What does that mean?!”   For our health, it’s less important that we require ourselves to learn all new techniques to eat well…

Food is Fuel

While listening to a mindful eating podcast I heard a fantastic message and I wanted to share it with you today. After eating we should not feel tired and lethargic because our food is fuel.

#givingTuesday

A wise man once told me: “If you want to make someone happy, do something nice for them; if you want to make yourself happy, do something nice for someone else.” -Andrew Sessions Now that we are on the other side of Thanksgiving, the holiday season has officially begun! Starting with Black Friday shopping, followed by small business Saturday and cyber Monday there are…

Do it for Someone Else

Tis the season to put everything else above your own health. As humans and especially women, we have a tendency to take care of other people’s needs first. The caretaker mentality does not always translate into taking care of our own needs. While walking in the woods I think how wonderful it is that everybody else…

Be Brave.
