An Attitude of Gratitude

It's hard to believe that another Thanksgiving holiday has passed. When you think of the term "thanksgiving", what comes to mind for you? What are the top three things you think of? As I think of giving thanks--or feeling gratitude--for what we have, it brought me to understand just how important mindfulness can be in creating a positive state for our mind and our bodies. State of mind plays a key role in making sure we enter our lives everyday from a place of inner strength and peace.

Aging Healthfully

This week I celebrated my 58th birthday. As a health practitioner and as a woman, I spent some time reflecting on yet another year in the books and to check-in with myself on how I am feeling about aging. The word “aging” has a broad connotation. As a verb, it refers to the process of growing old. As an adjective, it refers to the elderly.
