The most valuable lesson I have learned is that the most meaningful journey is the inner journey.

The Power of Small Moments

This week, let's go back and talk a little bit more about self-care. Why is it that maybe we don't put enough of it into our day? I was thinking if we broke it down into micro moments in our day, maybe we could find a little bit more time for self-care. So the micro moments are the moments in between, the moments in between a meeting or maybe a meal, or maybe you're driving somewhere.

How to get Better Results by Slowing Down

This week I want to talk about less is more. I feel like there is a great myth in life that connects our worth – our personal internal worth – to our productivity. We, in our busy life, tend to ignore our hunger, how tired we are. We work through sickness. We push our bladders to the brink because there’s always something more to do. There’s always something that needs to get done.

How our Emotions and Organs are Connected

This week, I want to talk about our organs, our emotions, and the time of day. My recent visit to the hospital in early January made me very aware of my lungs. The threat of not being able to breathe was very real and a very big learning moment for me. But once I knew I was okay, I started to think about – I know I’m weird, I started to think about my traditional Chinese medicine and the miracle of our body and how it works.

Listen to Your Liver!

Finally, we’re seeing a little shift in the weather. This is the time that we know as spring. It means we renew and new beginnings and we talk about spring cleaning and opening the windows, decluttering, cleaning out, freshening up in traditional Chinese medicine. And if you remember, I’ve spoken about this in the past that each season has organs that are related to it.

Why It’s OK to Take a Nap

This week I want to talk about napping. How many of us are not getting the rest that we need? And we do need to reset and replenish ourselves and as I am still doing – recover and recuperate. And this is what I’m learning after my recent health event, listening to our bodies when it tells us it’s tired. It’s very, very important to rest.

Walking with Angels

This week, I want to remind all of us that we are never alone. Asthma, that’s pretty scary stuff. As I started my New Year, an asthma episode that turned into bronchitis put me in the hospital for five days. Never in my life have I had such a flare up. And there was a moment when I realized I couldn’t breathe. But then I just kind of surrendered. But I had my team. We are never alone.

Knowing When to Surrender and How to Live in the Moment

This week, my title of my little talk is It Will Get Better – Teachers in Our Life. Teachers in our life can be people or events. This past January, I had a tremendous teaching moment when I landed in the hospital with viral bronchitis. As I was watching the EMT and the air docs and the nurses swirl around me, I surrendered and trusted I was in good hands.

3 Ways to Boost Our Immune System This Winter Season

This week I want to talk about staying warm. Well, I’m not sure where you are, but it’s winter here and all I can remember is when I was a young girl, my mom telling me to put my hat and scarf on and mittens. Well, you know what? It did sink in. And nowadays, whenever I see somebody out in the cold weather without a hat, scarf and gloves, I’m like, oh, I hear my mom’s voice in the back of my head.

My Word of the Week: Pen

This week I have my buddy here, Hoshi. So, she’s going to be with us today. Today I want to talk about journaling. I’ve talked about it many times, but did you know or are you familiar with all the various types of journals? I thought we could talk about it today, and then it would be fun to see what resonates with us each day, and then we could have some fun with it.
