For the most part, health is a choice.
It is a choice we make each day. It is determined by the environment we choose to live in, the stress we choose to take on, the food we choose to eat, the exercise we choose to engage in and the care we choose for our bodies.
This is great news! It means that we have control. It also means that we have to make our choices count.
Health is also a journey though. Most people do not go to bed one day eating the Standard American Diet and then wake up raw food vegans the following day. Generally, there is a gradual process of “stepping up” for health.
I like to view our health choices along a spectrum. On one side of the spectrum is a pure junk food diet, stressful living and no exercise. On the other end of the spectrum there is pure eating, healthy exercise, and lower stress living. Where you are on the spectrum is simply where you are. If you choose to have vibrant health, then you choose to move further on the spectrum.
As we grow and evolve our health, we move along that spectrum. As we learn more, moving along the spectrum becomes easier and our choices naturally follow suit.
Years ago, I would have never thought that I could live without cannolis. Afterall, it was only a once in a while indulgence. Today however, you could put one in front of me and I would just not be able to eat it. I did not get to this point overnight, but as my diet has evolved, so have my preferences.
So, be patient with yourself, keep moving forward on the spectrum and you will be amazed by the journey. One choice at a time and one step at a time.

Goodness knows, I am certainly one to have a million things going on at any given moment in time. Between helping people get healthy, being a mom of three little ones, running a household and going to school, life here is anything but simple. It is so easy to forget time how simplicity really does change our experience of life though. I am grateful to have the pleasure of interviewing an expert in this area.

I am not anti-technology. I actually think technology can be a wonderful thing. I do however, also think that technology has allowed us to get a bit lost. Perhaps things have just progressed so quickly that we stopped thinking about the way nature intended for things to be, our relationships with one another, and the earth. Perhaps we got so excited about all of the fabulous things that technology can accomplish that we disregarded the consequences and perhaps now we are so stuck that we can’t find a way out. Maybe we are so afraid to just let go that we can’t get to the point where we can slow down and see the things that are in fact natural.
What has me thinking about this? The dandelions and the scallions. (more…)

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned the importance of loving yourself and your body just the way it is. I also acknowledged how this is not necessarily an easy thing to do. Many of us are so focused on the negative and the things that we want to change.
Today, I invite you to step away from all of that and (more…)

During the holiday season, we can sometimes forget to stop and take time for ourselves. I know it happens to me all of the time (even when it is not the holiday season). Julie Clark, the founder of The Inspirational Coffee Club, has put together a great book that gives the ground rules for pouring your heart into life!! Here are some of those rules: (more…)

As many of you know, stress and worry are truly detrimental to our health. They have a tremendous impact! Here are a few tips from our interview:

Thanksgiving is almost here and it certainly is a good reminder to stop and be thankful. Many of us spend our days full of complaints….. hardly ever just being thankful. I know I spend a large portion of my day doing, doing, doing and not enough time focusing on the things I appreciate in life and the things I am truly thankful for. This holiday season, I request that you take a few moments and begin to notice the things you have to appreciate.
To bring forth your thankfulness, I have a challenge for you— I am calling it the “Thankful Inventory Challenge.” I challenge you to begin to create a list of all the things you are thankful for. Build and build that list from now until Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving day, when you are gathered with family and friends, share all or part of your list. Share it here with us too!!
I’ll start the list off with a few things I am thankful for — these are in no particular order:
My life, my kids, my family, my friends, my husband, my clients, YOU, organic chocolate , books, computers, my mission, kindness, lessons learned, lessons to be learned, kind souls, family gatherings, people out to make a difference in the world, ……….
