Leading up to my first birth, I had obstetric care until I was 34 weeks. My obstetrician told me I would be induced two weeks early, for no reason other than he felt it was best, so I transferred care to a group of midwives. Overnight, it seemed, I woke to a new birth paradigm. In this new landscape I was part of a team of women who took notice of my diet and my mindset, and opened my awareness of informed consent. The weeks passed, and I felt carried by these women as I waited for the birth.

How Positive Thinking Builds Your Skills, Boosts Your Health, and Improves Your Work

This article is a little long but I think it’s fantastic! We could all use some help in creating habits of a Positive Mindset. 

Positive thinking sounds useful on the surface. (Most of us would prefer to be positive rather than negative.) But, “positive thinking” is also a soft and fluffy term that is easy to dismiss. In the real world, it rarely carries the same weight as words like “work ethic” or “persistence.”

But those views may be changing.

Building Immune Systems for Busy People (AKA you!)

I don’t know why this is a consistent issue with busy adults but I know I am totally guilty of this over and over again…...neglecting myself while caring for all the people!

We spend so much time (especially as moms) pouring into the people we love yet we don’t spend time making sure we are in the best position to do that. If one more person tells me I need to put my own oxygen mask on before putting anyone else’s on my head will explode!

It’s not that I don’t believe this is true. It’s that I am busy and so it’s difficult to add more things to my schedule. Sometimes there is so much advice out there with a long list of things to do that I just dismiss it all because it seems too many things to incorporate. Even though there may be a few things I know I should do, I feel like a failure, so I don’t do anything. Please tell me I am not alone.

Brain Fog

Brain fog is real and it can be absolutely debilitating! Typically brain fog is described as a women’s issue or “mom brain” but the reality is that so many of us (men & women) are walking around on auto pilot because our brain function isn’t at it’s best.

Inflammation in the body

Inflammation in the body can be caused when your body recognizes anything that is foreign, such as an invading microbe or plant pollen. When the immune system reacts in these cases it truly protects your health.

We all have a journey

We all have a journey. In some ways our journeys are similar and in some ways completely different!

Personal development can come in many different ways but in all ways there are some key components that I am seeing when I researched it. This article does a good job of breaking it down

De-Stressing the Holidays

A poll by the American Psychological Association has found that during the holidays 69% of people are stressed by a “lack of time”, 69% are stressed by a “lack of money” and 51% are stressed over the “pressure to give or get gifts”. That’s a lot of stress for what should be the most joyous time of year.

Flu Shot Awareness

Typically anticipated to start in the fall months and peak in January or February, the “flu season” is always accompanied by signs in pharmacies and doctors’ offices promoting the vaccine. Your local pharmacy’s automated answering service may start with a recording letting you know that they’re offering the flu shot today – no appointment necessary. It may also include an announcement that by taking advantage of their services you will be giving a “life-saving vaccine to a child in a developing country” through the U.N.’s Shot@Life program. All of this for just $31.99. What a deal! Or is it?
