Time for a Change...


In as little as three weeks The Chinese New Year is upon us. 2011 ushers in The Year of the Rabbit, shifting us from the fierce tiger to the gentle bunny. In this year relationships, lifestyle and personal growth take center stage. In the spirit of the conciliatory rabbit I've included some of my favorite favorites on both coasts.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!


Here's my tip for everyone's favorite resolution....

I've seen significant results over 2010 from the program laid out in the book,
EAT TO LIVE: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. I took on a morning smoothie regimen because of what I learned. Lots of fruit and a good dose of heavy greens, throw in a couple of carrots if you like.

Support a Vision...

As a 20 year TM practitioner I'm very familiar with the benefits of meditation, however until recently I didn't realize the full extent of the effects. There is research that's coming to light on the positive impacts that TM is having on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
