3 simple (but not always easy) rules to live by…

Choose wisely…

Is the universe FOR YOU or AGAINST YOU? In life, you choose, consciously or not, one or the other.  The quality of your life experience depends on your answer to this question. Some people go through life believing every person, situation, and/or circumstance is stacked against them. Others go through life with ease, seeing challenges […]


Facelift on a 37 year old???

The benefits from bariatric surgery (think: gastric bypass or gastric band) can be tremendous…  Decreased blood pressure, improvement or eradication of sleep apnea, and decreased risk or cure of obesity complications including diabetes, heart attack and stroke. However, with radical weight loss comes changes in appearance.  Though these are mostly positive changes (e.g., slimmer waistline), […]


It’s all my parents’ fault!

Sometimes we blame others for how we feel, the choices we’ve made that led to a poor outcome, and even our health.  While we grow up getting indoctrinated with the beliefs of whomever we subconsciously see as role models, later in life we start to realize that we are responsible for how we feel and […]


Master Debater…

I saw a report last night on NBC Nightly News about middle schoolers’ concern for the candidates in our upcoming presidential election.  Generally speaking, they believe one candidate mistreats women, bullies, and acts like a child, while the other has been less-than-honest and forthcoming on issues possibly involving national security.  Neither candidate, to them, is ideal, […]


Your tribe…

I got a haircut yesterday!  I was talking to my hairdresser about some of the things I’ve been learning about marketing for a small business like hers and mine.  Although there are some sales-y techniques, more essential is building a solid, trustable brand over time, essentially creating a “tribe” of clients I can service, who love […]


How much water should I drink daily?

Unless you’re on a water-restricted diet for a medical condition, I recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces daily.  For instance, a 150 lbs person should drink 75 oz daily, more if he or she engages in a lot of physical activity. You can add alkalinizing drops to the water to decrease acidity in […]


Bulletproof coffee (almost)…

I get up early.  Some might say real early.  But I don’t have breakfast right away.  Instead I drink my version of “bulletproof” coffee, especially if I’m going to work out, play tennis, or do yoga. The idea behind bulletproof coffee (literally butter and other fats mixed into your morning joe) is that your body […]


You ugly!

Years of depression, anger, resentment, and inner turmoil can show on your face.   To explain this practically, negative emotions create tension in the muscles which, over time, leads to lines, furrows and other changes.   Although appearances aren’t everything, to continue to age gracefully may require looking within and healing.  (Louise Hay has a fabulous […]


What would happen…

Today’s post comes from Seth Godin, prolific author and renowned entrepreneur, who wrote: “What would happen… if we chose to: Get better at setting and honoring deadlines Help one more person, each day Sit in the front row Ask a hard question every time we go to a meeting Give more and take less Learn […]
