Last year at the unofficial start of summer I was feeling rested, strong and healthy. This year, I am getting over the flu and a bad bout of putting myself very low on my priority list. It happens to the best of us. We get so caught up with our busy lives that we forget…

I was talking with a client about a place that many of us dread going: the fitting room. It’s not really my happy place. I have been at my ideal weight for many years, and as a yoga teacher and health coach, my life revolves around wellness and fitness. And yet, I still don’t love…

Growing up I wanted to be the best at everything I did. My best wasn’t good enough for me. I had to be “the” best or I didn’t really see much point in trying. Now it’s possible that those two things are the same, your best and “the” best. If you are a gold medalist…

There are two things I can count on for Valentine’s Day: morning licks from my Yorkies and a beautiful bouquet of flowers from my Dad. That about sums up February 14th for me.

And even before then, my brother decided I would be the designated speech giver when it came time to toast family members because he thought I was better at it. (Debatable. He’s a pretty funny guy.) So why then yesterday,…

Come to think of it, it’s a lot like everyday life. We rush to get from home to work, possibly to the gym…

When I was little, I wasn’t shy about telling my parents what presents I wanted. I loved getting gifts back then.
