When I was a little girl I remember thinking how miraculous it seemed that when I got a cut that my body would form a scab, like it’s own Bandaid, and get to work healing itself.
Today, I’m amazed watching my daughter’s body heal from her recent bike accident. She has stitches in her lip holding the wound together long enough for her body to do its job of healing itself.
I used to think that non-stop stress and headaches were normal.
My problem, I believed, is that I also had twitches throughout my body, insomnia and seemed to get sick at every turn.
I felt like I wasn’t tough or strong enough.
“Why,” I wondered “can everyone else around me work so hard, but when I DO, I get SICK?”
Funny thing is, back then I didn’t even realize how stressed I was until . . .
Inspiring, powerful and brilliant documentary

The healing power of meditation
Many of my clients try to meditate to quiet their minds and tell me that they’re “just not good at meditation.”
The belief is that if you’re “good” at meditation that the mind will quiet. It might, but the goal of meditation is not to get good at meditation. The goal of meditation is to get good at life.
Meditation helps the body do what the body knows how to do: heal, restore, and refresh the mind.

Get your girlfriends together for this flick
I wish that I could get us all together to watch this movie and laugh.
Wine Country is a laugh-out-loud funny Netflix original movie about a group of women heading out to Napa to celebrate their friend’s 50th birthday.
Staring Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, and Paula Pell, so obviously the cast is fantastic.
Take the advice that I gave a friend, and watch this movie on your lunch break.
You won’t regret it and it will probably make you more productive for the rest of the day (as it did for her after laughing for 90 mins).

Mango, Arugula Salad with Cilantro Dressing
It feels like summer here in Portland, Oregon! And who doesn’t like a refreshing salad when it’s hot outside?
This Mango, Wheat Berry, and Arugula salad with Cilantro Lime dressing is packed full of nutrients and is absolutely deeeelish!
My local market was out of Wheat Berry, so I substituted with barley and loved it. The recipe provides suggestions to get creative. Either way, you’ll have a tasty, hearty salad, that won’t be your everyday dish. Bon Appetit!
Sharp, hilarious, not-to-miss Prime comedy
I’d seen you on my Prime video watch list for a long time, but just passed you by. Until, TWO clients told me how hilarious you were.
One said that she can’t handle watching much TV, but she’ll watch The Marvelous Mrs. Masel because there’s no violence, there’s strong of language (which she loves), and strong female leads (who doesn’t love that?).
She had me convinced that I needed to press play.
I didn’t intend to binge watch the entire first season, but I couldn’t help it! I pulled my husband in to rewatch season 1 & later season 2 with me. I hope season 3 comes soon!
