Hold Onto Your Daydream

Somewhere in my life I have heard the phrase “don’t quit your daydream.” It's been sitting heavy with me lately as my daughter starts to talk about college. As the world starts opening up. As I get closer to my fiftieth birthday. I feel like too often we don’t let ourselves dream. At least I don’t. I wrap myself up on a cloak of seriousness. I’m an optimistic realist. I don’t let myself have any what ifs ...

3 Steps To A Better Night’s Sleep

I am sure most of us would agree that we could use more sleep, better sleep. Whether its quality or quantity of sleep, many of us struggle to wake up in the morning feeling truly rested.  Sleep is crucial to our health and wellbeing. In fact, I’d argue that it’s the bedrock, the foundation of living a healthy lifestyle. If you aren’t getting good quality sleep, the likelihood is you won’t have energy to exercise ...

Listen To Yourself

Listen to yourself....I had lunch the other day with an old friend. We talked about the many self development programs we have taken over the years.

TWSM Beauty Tips ‘Facial Recognition’

Facial recognition....When you talk to someone face to face or via facetime, skype or through a zoom meeting, what is the first thing you notice? Is it their eyes? Their hair, or is it their skin? For me, I always seem to notice people’s skin. Skin is that outer layer of tissue on our body that guards everything inside. Let’s think about that, it guards everything inside our bodies.

In Balance

Being in balance...I watched the movie “My Spy”, starring Dave Bautista, the other night and one scene came to mind as I was thinking about balance in my life. The Spy, a hulk of a guy, was on the playground teeter-totter and on the other side of it were 3 girls. Up and down they went. If there was just one girl, no way would she have been able to counter-balance him and enjoy the ...
