Winter is just around the corner – are you ready? The 2014-2015 Farmer’s Almanac is predicting “another teeth-chatteringly cold winter” that will bring an “arctic blast with above-normal snowfall throughout much of the nation.” Last winter was a real doozy so I’m in pre-season training mode (and I don’t mean ski-season).
Immunity boosting is the name […]
It’s 5pm on a Monday and you’ve just finished a long day of work. Your body is tense, your mind is spinning, and your adrenals are on a post-caffeine downswing. Exercise would help but you’re starting to get hungry. But if you eat dinner now then you’ll be toast for the rest of […]
I’ve just spent the past few hours trying to activate my first smartphone. I’ll admit I am completely behind the times with phone technology and so far it’s been a tedious, difficult and unnerving process. I’m at the point of wondering if what I’m doing is actually working and there’s a string of questions […]
With the recent release of the new action film Lucy it seems fitting to start a discussion on the controversial topic of superhumans. As a small disclaimer, this subject requires a willingness to go beyond what some might consider to be a “rational” thought process.

The roulette table of life’s hard knocks decided it was time that I get a serious viral infection. We’re talking about the kind of sickness that will put most people in a doctor’s office, where they’ll be given antibiotics and possibly surgery. It was REALLY bad. Not sure how it happened, but I might have […]
The warm weather is finally here! And with that comes the gradual shedding of layers, swapping shoes for flip flops, and increasing our Vitamin D intake (woo hoo SUNSHINE). But as with any seasonal transition it’s really good to pace ourselves so that we have time to adjust our lifestyle patterns accordingly.
Body care […]
There’s been a lot of sickness floating around lately – some nasty chest and head colds (I got hit with both). For the most part I just let them run their course, knowing that my immune system would be stronger once it was all over. I upped the anti on my vitamin C intake, drank […]
Have you been to your local Walmart lately? It can be a DISTURBING experience. I know, we’re not supposed to talk about this stuff – it’s not “compassionate.” I’m not saying this to be mean, I’m saying it because it’s true. There’s a cross section of middle America which borders on zombie apocalypse scenarios. […]
For just a moment, ask yourself the following questions:
What is the BEST you’ve ever felt? Where were you? How old were you? What were you doing? Were you alone or with someone? Did this happen more than once? Was it a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual experience?
Don’t worry too much about the particulars, […]
I’ve been a people watcher for almost two decades. I gather information from watching the way that people move, from how hold themselves, and so on. I’m not as good as that guy on Lie to Me, but I can read body language pretty well.
So I was at a 5Rhythms class in Manhattan […]
