Mind + Body + Spirit

Mind + Body + Spirit = Fitness

What does this really mean?

We are more than a physical body. Our logic may deem that losing weight is solely associated with the physical body. The physical body reflects the physical aspects of too much weight. It harbors painful joints, illness, or chronic sleep issues.

If you think about it, what are the reasons the extra weight crept on, and you were unable to stop it from…

Is Self Care Selfish?

Self care is not selfish! It’s selfish to not take care of yourself. It’s selfish to allow your physical, mental, and emotional bodies to fall into disarray.  It’s selfish to allow extra weight to continue to consume your health, wellness, and well-being.

It’s selfish because it is the bases for expecting others to care for us when we become disabled or sick from our lack of self-care.

This may seem harsh, but think about it. Do we enjoy caring for others who have fallen ill…

Dealing with the Death of a Parent

There are times when parents die unexpectedly. There is no time to prepare for their passing. It simply happens. It is immediate, sudden, and leaves in its wake the feeling of shock.

The numbness permeates every aspect of life, affecting relationships, work, and an individuals ability to cope with everyday life. There is no way to bury these feelings deep inside, because they ooze out from under the illusion placed over the emotion.

Dealing with Thoughts, Feelings & Emotions with Children

It is human to feel. It is normal to cry. These are basic human needs. We are feeling beings, and often we have to pretend that we are feeling "nothing." We deny our basic needs, and we create an imbalance in our lives.

Communication comes in many forms, and speech is only one form. We have the ablility to create art, write stories, act parts in drama (plays, movies, TV programs, etc.), dance, build things and more. It is sad when individuals choose to "build" physical things/actions…

Degrees of Separation

http://youtu.be/5w8DdVCHvk8     It's amazing the power of words, and how they affect our outlook on life.  When is comes to spirituality, awareness of words is essential.  On the surface, it does not seem to matter what we call our Creator or which words we use to describe our beliefs.  This is untrue.

A Journey Through Darkness

It's easy to forget that the entire world does not operate with integrity and honesty.  It's easy to get lost in the positive and spiritual aspects of our lives.  I found myself in this place of darkness a few years ago, and have been slowly finding my way out.

I didn't see it happen.  I wasn't aware of the change, until after my life changed.  At that point, I couldn't see what was happening.  It was like a waking nightmare.  It feeds itself, and is a very confusing place to…

Journaling as a Personal Growth Tool

It can be challenging to finding the pathway to ourselves. . .

Journaling is a fantastic way to find one’s self.  It is a safe place to explore feelings, emotions and relationships, without hurting one’s self or others.  It allows us to find perspective in “things” that can feel overwhelming.  It helps us gain control over our lives, and empowers us to be who we need to be.…
