The Perils Of Sitting (Yes, I Did Say “Perils”)

Sitting must be less dangerous than hang gliding, right? Surly it’s not as dangerous as rock climbing or snow boarding. Swimming is more dangerous than sitting, especially if you’re diving. Or not? How can sitting be perilous at all? And how can this be a newsworthy topic? Turns out, the dangers of sitting are much …

First, Do No Harm, Right?

The Hippocratic Oath has long been revered for it’s wisdom. It is my contention, knowing personally a few doctors, and having conversed with far too many, besides, that most doctors are in their profession to actually help people. Of course, we may ask ourselves how we could ever know this for sure. In certain circles …

Baby Steps Or A Giant Leap?

During my training to become a certified health coach, I was shown that most people can do really well with “baby steps” toward better health. You know, some people try to change everything in their diets & lifestyles overnight, jumping into a radical new eating plan, diving into intense gym workouts and all sorts of …

Bugs And Fibromyalgia

You know that feeling after doing something physically demanding, when you are so exhausted that you can barely move? Your muscles are sore, even tender. You may even have a headache from being over-tired, and you may have trouble sleeping, even though that’s all you want to do. Imagine feeling this way for weeks and …

Maybe You CAN Have A Perfect Body

Yes, I’m talking to you! What do you think it would it take to get you there? Lots of exercise? A great detox program? A diet? Yoga? May I suggest, perhaps, a paradigm shift, instead? I have said many times, “My husband is not perfect, but he’s perfect for me.” By that I mean, of …

Organic Veggies And Fruit On My Doorstep!

Your time is a valuable thing, is it not? My time is so valuable that I have decided to spend less of it doing things I don’t especially enjoy, such as grocery shopping. For several months now, I’ve been getting a nice amount of fresh, organic produce and also some meat from a local delivery …

I’d Listen To My Body But I’m Not Sure It’s Talking

Every week, my yoga teacher says it. “Listen to your body.” Have you ever tuned in to your inner voice and wondered, “What in the world are you saying?” Learning to recognize the many messages sent from our own bodies can take some practice; but it actually starts when we’re tiny babies. We feel pretty …

Imperfection Guaranteed

I enjoy spring cleaning, and even more, the result. All the stuff I ignore when it’s too cold out to be motivated to clean, all that is musty and dusty, is replaced by clean freshness and everything seems brighter. Well, I don’t know about you, but that only lasts for a while…suddenly, it’s August. August …

A Little Help From My Friends (A Guest Post)

It is rare that I (Mollie’s daughter, Sierra, guest blogger for the day) wake up on any day of the week and announce, “I have nothing to do today!” But on this Saturday, I have a little respite: the day after throwing a bridal shower and before leaving town. When I made my declaration, my …
