How do you start your mornings? Are you already stressed out before you even open your eyes? Are you reaching for your phone, checking your messages, and feeling on high alert before your feet even hit the floor?

Been there, for sure!

These days I do my best to ease myse...

Is life calling you to wake up?

Do you keep hitting snooze?

Please, stop.

A few months ago I went out to lunch with a therapist friend of mine.  John is a cancer survivor.  His life was pretty touch and go there for a while and he took several months off of work.  The tre...

My cousin started smoking again.

You see, his HOUSE BURNED DOWN. 

So it's a little bit of a stressful time period.

Our bad habits--even ones that we feel like we have fully conquered--can pop back up again during times of stress.  Surprise!

When I was a sophomore in college, I was at a movie night hosted by our apartment complex with some roommates and a bunch of other students.  I was sitting in a chair wearing a long, just-below-calf length, red skirt and a guy I barely knew who was sitting on the floor...

I’m on vacation right now, well, more of a work-ation actually....part work, part pleasure.  But then my work is a pleasure!

I attended an amazing business retreat in Asheville, NC and am now following it up with some rest and relaxation in the Charleston area.

Oh my gosh, I have been so tired lately.  Which is weird because I almost always have a ton of energy in the summer/fall--it's like my *power time* of year where I feel my most creative and productive.
