Speak in First Person Singular

“Nobody can be exactly like me.  Sometimes even I have trouble doing it.” - Tallulah Bankhead, 40’s Film Star
 
Are you still in school “daze,” now that all the paraphernalia has been wrestled into a dorm cubicle?  Or now that sending your baby off to kindergarten just tugs at your heartstrings rather than breaks them?  I’ve been beaming healing energy to all of you ~ from preschool to college, students and families.  Such a big transition! 

Giving Thanks

Written by Karen Verna Carlson, N.D., Ph.D.. Posted in Holistic Living.


An attitude of gratitude is a valuable holistic tool.
 
      Dancing joyfully between your life’s mission and your daily tasks, the big picture and the details, your long-range aspirations and recycling your trash is one way to describe holistic living.   When I’m in that holistic zone, I’m feeling really good, dancing inside like Snoopy’s best cartoon
jig.  Then there are those times when I’ve morphed into a Velcro ping-pong ball on a Velcro table: stuck, stuck, stuck.  Doesn’t matter whether it’s the big picture or the little, stuck is characterized by frustration, or angst, or despair, or ___________. (I invite you to fill in your “favorite.”  Seriously, why not grab a pen right now and get personal?  Moving muscles demonstrates willingness, which in turn opens new nerve pathways for new thought patterns.)

Healthify Summer Fun

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894)

The symphonic cicadas are an audio background while the sound studio in my mind plays that old tune, “It’s summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime….”   I LOVE THIS SEASON!   Fun opportunities abound ~ from a simple lunchtime picnic during a busy workweek to a sublime summer at the shore.  Mother Nature entices us to savor the outdoors, to stroll the neighborhood on a cool evening, to chill around the pool on the doggiest of days.

Menopause Meets Motorcycle

Menopause Meets Motorcycle

Just what does “holistic” mean?

Let’s postpone this “what” question, and start out with questioning “why” even explore this topic?  Answer: to learn something valuable you can easily apply for Living Well.  Whether the value is simply considering a new perspective or whether it’s cultivating a new habit, you will experience direct benefits from applying it.  These benefits build and grow and sculpt your being, and consequently your life, for the former inspires the latter.
