Not the Meditating Type? Neither Am I. Except…

Meditation?!?  Sometimes that word is really intimidating. Most days there’s no way that I’m going to sit still for longer than about 2 minutes without falling asleep or getting up to get something done.  And quiet freaks me out. But we all know the amazing health benefits of meditation…we’ve seen articles about it for years. And […]

How do your armpits help keep your spine safe?

OK, I know sometimes I say things that really don’t make sense…but this isn’t one of those times.  As you learned in my last post, the muscle that feels like it’s your armpit, your Serratus Anterior, keeps your scapula (shoulder blade) attached to your ribcage, helps stabilize it, and helps the whole shoulder move properly.  […]

Why I’m Obsessed With Your Armpits

If you’ve ever taken a class with me, you have heard me talk about your armpits more than once.  I know it’s a little odd, but once you find what I mean, you feel a huge difference in how you’re doing whatever exercise you’re doing.  But you may not understand what happened, so I thought […]

Just do it

Nike has long used “Just Do It” in marketing their brand.  We’ve heard it a million times.  We’ve used it in jokes.  We’ve ignored the lesson we should learn from it. We are masters of procrastination and laziness. Masters. But what if we just did it? Years ago, I participated in a pilot program that […]

It’s that time of year…

I’ve been seeing a meme on Facebook all week that talks about starting a gym called “Resolutions” – it would be a gym for January and a bar the rest of the year. I kind of grumble when I see this because it’s all so true.  Too many people make New Year’s Resolutions and drop […]

Happy New Year!!

As we approach 2016, I want to encourage you to think about your goals.  Not just your “resolutions”, but what you want to achieve in 2016 and beyond.  Write them down and put them in a place you see often. We are much more likely to achieve our goals when we write them down and […]

Why do we do it? the holidays…

Around the holidays, I sometimes find myself thinking about why we do all of the extra work, shopping, and cooking, and why we accept all of the extra stress, effort, and expense. The answer is that it should be fun and we want to make our loved ones feel loved. So, enjoy the holidays!   Be […]

Don’t let the fear of failure hold you back!

In my 20’s, I had a friend who was so smart and talented with a ton of interests and ideas of how to turn them into successful businesses that could help a lot of people. BUT He was so scared of failing that he never tried any of them.  He was so paralyzed by this […]

Thankful…

With Thanksgiving last week and Christmas in just a few short weeks, I’ve been hearing a lot about what people are thankful for.  And it’s so wonderful to hear the varied responses – all full of love. I thought it would be appropriate for me to write about something important I am very thankful for […]

Give yourself a time out!

Following on last week’s blog about being kind to yourself, give yourself a time out this week.  The holidays are such a wonderful time of year, but there are so many extra things to get done, family to deal with, and events to attend. Do you feel the anxiety building?  Like you want to yell […]
