Homemade Bone Broth Recipe : Pure Goodness Made Easy

We are leaving for an extended stay (7+ months) to Costa Rica. As plans comes together, we are T-60, I am starting to realize how many creature comforts I will no longer have access to. Although I am sure to find new ones, there are a couple that are keeping me up at night so [...]

Supporting Physical Health While Addressing Mental Health (Part 2 of 3)

I have to say I have a heavy heart this week as it relates to issues of mental health. Along with the sad passing of both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, there was a very young woman in my community that committed suicide this week. My family, like so many, is not a stranger to [...]

Episode #42 // Flossing and A Positive Morning Ritual

There is something I do EVERY MORNING, that I kid is more important than flossing my teeth (but I’m enough of a rule-follower that I do both), and it’s a huge part of my journey toward enjoying The Full Life. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time (3 minutes the science says, and [...]

Why Not Take a Walking Meditation?

You Can Meditate with Your Eyes Open. Seriously, You Can. It's no secret that there are many health benefits, physical and emotional, that you gain from meditation. But, just like getting to the gym, that doesn't make it any easier to find the time to do the practice. Right?!  WRONG!!! With Spring around the corner, [...]

Episode #38 // Holiday Reboot: Stress-Less Guided Visualization Exercise

The holidays can be filled with contradiction; joy and overwhelm, abundance and clutter, love and frustration, harmony and reactivity, peace and resentment. Although we may not realize, we have a choice to choose nourishing feelings and reactions over those that leave us feeling stressed out. One of the best ways I know to increase the [...]

Episode #35 // Do You Exercise Self Compassion?

Welcome to The Full Life! I’ve been on the horn lately about getting good at Self Compassion. For many, it’s the soft side of a more critical conversation we have with ourselves when we don’t measure up. “Good heavens, don’t be kind to yourself! You’ll never do better!” is more the norm. There is loads [...]

Episode #34// The Full Life Reboot: A Self Compassion Break

This week on our REBOOT episode (those short ones aimed at giving us a few minutes of “guided” stillness) we’re exploring a Self Compassion Break. This particular one is based on the work of Kristen Neff. She is, in my eyes, a self compassion Guru (check out her TedTalk for more on this subject https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvtZBUSplr4) [...]

Episode #33 // Busy is a Disease of Perception

I’m always open to chatting about busy; it seems everyone else is, too. Is epidemic too strong a word to describe the extent to which ‘busy’ is impacting our health, our happiness, and the quality of our relationships? I don’t think so. It really hit home recently when I read these words from Dr. Suzanne [...]

Episode #32 // The Full Life Reboot: Your JOY Compass

It’s a Reboot Week! Let’s enjoy a few minutes to disconnect from the busy and reboot our beautiful lives. Although few of us would argue that we wouldn't like to feel more JOY in our day to day lives. It can become a bit allusive with the always on, 24/7 nature of our days. Just [...]

Episode #31 // Making Each Day Matter with Author, Cathy Anello

At one time or another we’ve probably all contemplated “would I do this if I only had 1 more day of life”. For my guest, Cathy Anello, this became much more than a contemplation, at a very difficult time in her life. It became a way of healing, learning to love her life again and [...]
