What? Is that even possible? Thanksgiving, Christmas Parties, New Year’s!
Three huge holidays in a row really set us up for major stress…
and they are back to back to back. In a way, it’s good that we can get all of the stress over with all at once.
So, let’s look at some strategies.
It really is all about our outlook
If you are fortunate enough to have a large and loving family, share the chores.
Gone are the days of “going to Grandma’s house” who lovingly had the ava
All of our lives, we have been told that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t ever skip breakfast. If you do, you are setting yourself up for obesity and other health issues. This is what we have been told. Yet, I meet people often who say that they can’t eat first thing in the morning. The truth is, there are different body types and things change as we age.

We are an arrogant bunch! As Americans, we have always believed in our rights to a better life. We even fought a war to disengage from our former government and then proceeded to demand that we have a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We are the masters of our fate, we say. And yet, there is one area in particular, where we have “abandoned the throne”. We give over our power to the medical doctor and insist that they “make us well”. Well, whose healt
I hear it all the time: “ It costs so much more to eat healthy!” Thats what the majority of people think, UNTIL you break it down and check the facts. I will put in an exception here: If you live far away from major towns or cities, it may be more expensive to eat real food. But if that is your case, then you probably have a least a small plot of land where you can grow a percentage of your own food. So this exception isn't quite valid anymore, is it? So I will go on to say t
