Ebb or Flow… What Energy Are You Working With?

Ebb or Flow… What Energy Are You Working With?

There are those who are truly active (engaged and doing their thing, rebooting from time to time) and those who are truly tired (back hunched, low energy level– moving closer to the grave). The tide energy of man ebbs and flows (in biological rhythms such as circadian rhythm (sleep), menstruation rhythm,  cardiac  rhythm, etc).  Some(…)

On This Free Your Mind Friday, Free Your Heart and Your Kitchen

On this FREE YOUR MIND FRIDAY, try letting go of what’s bothering you.  Many times it’s really not the situation that is causing pandemonium in your life, because situations come and they go, but your lingering thoughts about these.

Education Is A Holy Mess, But Still The Best Way To Evolve

  This past weekend I attended a Pri-Med symposium on medical updates.  The entire weekend was a stimulating one, except once I was struggling to stay awake the sleep disorder update, but I muscled-up and survived. The Harvard/UM folks used the best in the field to present the battery of material.  I felt very fortunate to be(…)
