Belly up to the [fill in the blank] bar

It's a gray early Sunday morning in Ann Arbor—even I sleep in most Sundays (sometimes even as late as 7am :) ), but today is my first 5K—nope, just walking—and that's a story for another day.... As spring slips away and summer comes into full swing, we're playing "the single parenting game" at my house—this happens annually for anywhere from 2–4 months at a time. You can read more about this in...

Are you cancelable?

When I was being certified as a health coach, I live-streamed the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's live events, which are weekend long extravaganzas of top speakers from the world of health and wellness. Once, I was surprised to see that one of the speakers lined up for the day was Arianna Huffington of Huffington Post fame. What could she possibly have to say about health and wellness? It...

Goodbye, Hello: New Year, New Practice

winter
As I get older, I feel the pull of the seasons more and more strongly, and the words of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 feel more true each year: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven...." Winter is a time for nourishing, slow-cooked soups and stews featuring lots of root vegetables, for conserving our energy (read: naps!), and for turning inward, reflecting on the ...

Q + A with Carl Gunderson

Loved sitting down for a chat with my friend Carl Gunderson of Simply Holistic Fitness today! Carl is a member of the Caerusnet referral group I am part of and is a holistic personal trainer with so much wisdom to share, it was hard to fit it all in—I think we managed to cover just a small portion of his story, philosophies, and practices. I hope you'll enjoy the conversation—if you live in the gr...

Although the post is written for entrepreneurs, it's just as relevant for those of us who are overscheduled professionals, parents, employees.....

Q+A with Brian Truskowski

My friend Brian Truskowski and I met a few years ago at a networking group and immediately discovered a lot in common, from the underlying principles of our work to our focus on empowering and education our clients. We often get together to brainstorm and to celebrate (and yes, occasionally bemoan) the life of a solo-preneur in the alternative health care field, and I always enjoy hearing him t...

Everyday Power Blog | Five things to (not) do first thing in the morning

How do you feel about mornings? Yes, please – the earlier, the better! Meh – I can survive them when I have to. Please don’t make me morning. If you talk to me, I will kill you. If you answered “1,” then save yourself some time and skip this post. I know you – you rise with (before?) the sun without an alarm, you smile before you get out of bed, you’re at the gym door when it open...

“But I’m not the cook…” | Supper + Support

When I was studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I often envied my single, childless classmates: as we were introduced to a large number of dietary theories - from veganism to the meat-centric Atkins plan, from high carb to low carb, from high-protein to low protein, etc. - the institute's staff frequently reminded us that no one theory was right for everyone and that we should expe...
