I’m going on a trip….

empty suitcase
After years of staycations, 2018 is becoming the year of traveling for me—and I've been thinking about the learning that comes from not just the trips themselves but the packing that goes into them. My first two big trips this year were by car, which is always nice because you don't have to consider what you take as much as you do when you travel by plane. Packing for overseas travel is alto...

SOUL food | Loving

This is the final post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal, the second at SOUL food | Organic, and the third at SOUL food | Unique. Relationships are one of the most important primary foods in our lives, and we rarely (if ever) think about our relationship with ourselves as one of them—and so it is perhaps the one we rarely tend to. I'm a podcast junkie...

Why should I clear my (virtual) plate?

I recently had the honor of interviewing the lovely Dr. Fiona Lovely of the Not Your Mother's Menopause podcast and Facebook community. We talked a lot about bringing peace to busy women in what can be a stressful time in our lives, and we took a crack at making hormones make sense! You can listen to the interview here: please note that there is a lead of about 1:15 before the recording beg...

SOUL food | Organic

This is the second post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal. "Organic" has a lot of meanings—perhaps the most familiar in today's world is its reference to foods grown without synthetic inputs (that's right, organic farmers can use pesticides and herbicides—but they cannot be synthetically derived) using farming methods that integrate cultural, biologica...

Unlimited do-overs

It's pretty common for New Year's resolutions to dissolve just weeks into the new year, and as we approach the start of 2018, I have some thoughts on why that's so. Don't get me wrong: I definitely don't discourage setting resolutions—I am just interested in exploring why we have a hard time keeping them, and I've come up with some tips to make resolutions more keep-able. arbitrary or intentio...

SOLE food | SOUL food

At the end of 2016, I shifted my health coaching practice from focusing almost entirely on secondary foods—what we put in our mouths—to primary foods—everything else in our lives that nourishes us (or doesn't). I also set a goal of blogging once a week rather than once a month (or so) and sending my post out by email to my list. It's been a year since then, and I'm happy to report I am one week...

I know I should be….

I spend a lot of time talking to people about their health goals and their primary and secondary food choices. And one of their most frequent comments is, "I know what I should be doing, but I just can't seem to do it." This past week during one of my walks, I listened to an interview with Gretchen Rubin, author of The Four Tendencies. It's easy to roll our eyes and think, "Oh no, another way t...

A few of my favorite things | Podcasts

Vacation ends soon—I'm slipping in another quickie post before I run out to enjoy the end of it! If you've been following me for a while, you know that I'm a big fan of podcasts. I listen to them when I'm driving, when I'm walking, when I'm cleaning house, and over the past few years, I've settled on a few favorites, which I thought I'd share with you. (Click on the title to go to each podca...

Do less better.

Today marks the beginning of a series of workshops my collaborator, Holly Southerland, and I are calling Month of Margin. The goal of the workshops is to help women create margin in their external and internal environments by a three-step process of decluttering, organizing, and improving efficiency. What is "margin?" Richard Swenson explains it mathematically as Margin = Power - Load. That's s...

When the stars line up: on luck, grace, and goals

When the stars line up, and you catch a good break, People think that you’re lucky, but you know it’s grace. "Timing Is Everything," Natalie Hemby/Troy Jones I'm a huge fan of podcasts: for those of us on the go from morning until night, reading is often a luxury, and podcasts can be added to commuting, workouts, mundane chores, etc. in a way that books normally can't. (And yes, I confess t...

“Harry was Voldemort, and Voldemort was Harry”

Good Life Project Logo
I’ll be honest: my candidate was out of the running after the primaries, which may be one reason that I’ve been feeling a bit detached from the aftermath of the election. Not apathetic, but detached. I did vote my conscience, and I did not “cast a protest vote” nor “throw my vote away.” You will read this sentence based on your own reality, which will give you your own interpretation of it. And...
