1. Birthday Food

    My husband had this amazing gluten free, vegan cake made for my birthday. So good. So sweet. Both my husband and the cake…… Seriously, I honestly can’t remember the last time I had cake, so it was a great surprise…and did I mention it was so good?! I definitely won’t be doing that again anytime […]

  2. 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 […]

  3. 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 […]

  4. 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) […]

  5. Something different

    As you’ve heard me say before, I really limit my consumption of social media. Actually all media (main stream) since we don’t get the paper, have a TV or listen to the radio. So I’m surprised when I notice how much the crazy energy of the world effects me. Not hard to jump to the conclusion that everyone […]

  6. Just Breathe

    It’s the times we’re living in. Many days it seems overwhelming. Often I feel like I’m waiting to wake up and then I realize I am awake. The negativity, the fear, the stories being told. The stories that aren’t being told and need to be. Who to listen to. Who and what to trust. You know […]

  7. Zack Bush, MD

      For years I’ve been talking to people about gut health and the gut-brain axis. Quite frankly most people don’t see/believe the link because it’s so far out from what we hear from allopathic medicine. Luckily that’s slowly changing, as more and more research is being done to support the importance of this axis. But […]

  8. 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 […]

  9. 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 […]

  10. Comfort Food

    Yup…it’s soup because that’s how I roll! Sometimes self care is really getting back to basics: Nourishing our body with good food, staying hydrated with good quality water, movement and exercise, sleep, setting boundaries, etc. So soup is perfect, especially for today since it’s cooler, remember it’s still only June, and it’s a rainy day […]
