15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 4 of 4)

11. CULTIVATE GRATITUDE. Feeling resentful and picked-on is easy. It takes just a bit of effort, discipline, and purpose to spend a few minutes daily shifting into a pose of gratitude.

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 3 of 4)

6. GET REGULAR PHYSICAL TOUCH. Sex is an important part of a healthy life, and people with good, monogamous sexual relationships are more likely to have good emotional and physical health. But part of the reason why is due to the fact that their need for physical touch is being met. Everyone has read about […]

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 2 of 4)

1. YOGA! It changed my life. I’m more flexible at 46 than I was at 16. But yoga has done more for me than that. It has helped me quiet my mind and tune in to the most elemental things: breathing, and just “being.” I have also seen improvements in spinal, joint, ligament flexibility and […]

My Gratitude Blog, part 2 of 2

My best friend, Kristin, and I had a year, going through divorce and various single-working-mom struggles, where we decided to look at the world differently.

My Gratitude Blog, Part 1 of 2

Have you ever been in a trance? If you’re a parent, you’ve seen your child in one. He can’t hear or see anything–so lost is he, in thinking about something very intensely. I had one of these a few days ago. I’m going to try to describe it. I was actually blending a Hot Pink […]
