Hope, Grace, Ancient Wisdom

Move if you don’t like where you are. Get yourself out of debt if you’re in over your head. Watch what you eat. Stop letting creditors, the food industry, and the health industry control your mind, body, spirit. Get healthy for your family and inspire your friends. Everyone’s watching, whether or not you know it; you’re already a role model. How are you showing up every day?

Be that ray of sunshine and make someone’s day brighter. Make a difference while you can.

 

Life’s short.

Audiobooks are NOT “Fun Stuff!”

As Mel Abraham says, love what you do because you’ll be recreating it for the next 5-10 years minimum. Selling books is job which requires you to handle the same material a gazillion times. Are audiobooks fun stuff? To record, yes. To listen to someone else’s, definitely. To edit your own? The jury’s still out…

To Detox or Not?

To detox less, you need to live clean.

It seems so obvious, doesn’t it?

Yet our nation clearly misses the boat on this topic. Our water’s polluted partly because of the chemicals we use on our body when we shower, get out of the shower, and the rest of the day. Our air and food are polluted, and we pollute our minds with a constant stream of negativity.

How Yoga and Meditation Make Life Better for Seniors and Caregivers (GUEST ARTICLE)

There is so much is to be gained from yoga and meditation, and science is taking notice. In fact, these ancient practices are getting more attention than ever, as some studies show the mental and physical benefits are both important and measurable. You can improve heart health through improved circulation, lowered heart rate, and reduced blood pressure. People with arthritis can improve joint health and reduce inflammation, and those with back pain often experience relief within days of beginning a regimen. Symptoms of asthma can be reduced, stress levels lowered, risk of depression lowered, and it can boost your mood for a more positive outlook on life.  It’s a great way to improve strength, stamina, flexibility, and balance, and there are even indicators that you can lower your risk for dementia.

Wreath Making 101

I believe most Mainers’ first word is “yup.”

For Downeaster’s, their first word may be “wreath” or perhaps “tips.” “Downeaster” denotes those who come from the 2 southeastern counties along our coastline of Maine, Washington and Hancock counties. Wreath-making is often a family event, and I’d guess balsam sap may very well run through their veins…

I spent almost 2 months making wreaths and like many Mainers, can now spot the difference between a bad or “Canadian wreath,” and one made by an experienced maker.
