1. Stuck

      Seems like we’re all stuck in fight, fight or freeze mode. This is what happens when we feel threatened. Afraid. Unsure. Scared. We get stuck in sympathetic response. This type of response is lifesaving if we’re being chased by a bear, or our house is on fire. But it’s not useful or healthy to be […]

  2. New Year

    I’m reflecting on the past year, which is probably the same thing that you’ve been doing. I was noticing everyone talking about kicking 2020 to the curb and hoping for a better year. My husband and I had a conversation about how we had felt about the past year. Seemed we agreed that in spite of […]

  3. Tapping Made Simple

    I’m sharing this because right now everyone can use this awesome tool to help with stress levels plus I seem to be talking about this a lot lately. We’re all operating from a place of heightened awareness with our sympathetic nervous system stuck in fight/flight/freeze. Not good on so many levels… By using Tapping (EFT) […]

  4. Roadside musings

    Since I walk and or cycle everyday in our village I notice what’s going on. Especially along the side of the road because…well …that’s not only quite visible to me but the most interesting place for our dog. While Kevin, our Alaskan Malamute, is sniffing and exploring, I’ve been noticing the abundance of plant life […]

  5. Feeling all the feelings!

    I’m committed to thirty days of emotional detox! I’m feeling all the feelings and letting them go! And with everything that’s going on in the world, there’s no better time. Here’s what I’ve learned about feelings versus emotions because lets face it, we all use the terms interchangeably. And no wonder, there can be a […]

  6. I am not afraid

    I’m finding it interesting that a song known as the unofficial anthem of the labour and civil rights movement has been stuck in my head for over a month. Lets face it there’s a lot going on “out there” right now. Lots of finger pointing, lots of fear, lots of information from so many different […]

Eat a wide variety of healthy fruits, vegetables and omega-3  essential fatty acids, while limiting sugar and refined foods.

  8. Clarity

    Last week I woke up with this incredible sense of gratitude (also a sense of “how did I get here?”). Here being: In this house With my husband Two amazing daughters, son in law and now a granddaughter.. In an awesome community with great friends and work I love! A life I love, of which […]

  9. You can call me Oma

    My daughter gave birth to a daughter…. I was blessed, and honoured to be there and witness the miracle. I say miracle because the birth of a tiny human is a miracle. I feel that we often forget that. We forget that our bodies are beautifully and perfectly made. My daughter was fully present, in the […]

  10. I felt like I would die, if she did

    I remember that feeling when my sister was battling cancer. And then she did…but I didn’t…. Those memories return to me as our tiny town mourns. A young man is lost, a man I never met but I still feel the sadness that lies like a blanket over our community. Shock Disbelief Saddness Grief We […]
