Mindfulness: In the Day and Life of a Woman

These days we hear a lot about being mindful. But do we know what it means exactly? I have been practicing and teaching meditation for twenty years now and I humbly can tell you exactly what it does mean.

As women, we hold many roles. We nurture, we provide in and outside of the home. We lead, we teach, and we believe in the importance of this. But often we worry that it won’t be enough for those we love, guide even protect and more. But do you give the same energy to yourself?

What Can I Do?

You watch the news, you see random, everyday, people being victimized by criminals. You think: “She is just like me, all she was doing was walking to her car” or “I jog there as well and she was attacked.” Pretty scary when you think about how a random crime can affect you. How a seemingly innocent night out, trip to the park to run, or a drive in your car can become a life changing event.

“I need to do something,” you say to yourself, but what CAN you do?

Spring Into Something New

I hear birds singing outside my window!  March 20th is the first day of spring, so bring on the warmth.  Oh wait; it’s Rochester!  I must have typed that with a brain freeze because warm summer breezes could still be a couple months away.  That beautiful week in February was just a smidgeon of what is to come.  If anything, it created in me some wishful thinking. What about you?

Healthy Snacks for the Mindless Eaters

For most of my life, I didn’t have weight issues. I was always active in sports, I watched what I ate and was a healthy individual. I never had eating disorders or anything aggressive like that, I was just constantly active, on the move and definitely health conscious.  In high school, I never was one to hang out with the kids who were experimenting in drugs or alcohol and I drank maybe once or twice, so that was never really part of my life until college.

Spa Cheers to Health!

Spa cheers to health!

Mention  the  spa and you can almost hear a chorus sighing: wouldn’t that be nice? Let’s face it, most of us dream of a visit to the spa.   Whether we have ever visited one or never have set a foot in one, spas never fail to evoke the ultimate, ever-elusive feeling of relaxation and pampering we usually reserve for the elite and glamorous.  And yes, isn’t it nice to feel like a celebrity and indulge yourself in a world all your own, even if only for a few hours?

Massage: What Is It?

Massage.  What is it?  In the United States, most people look at massage as a therapeutic treatment or as a luxury relaxation treatment.    Massage therapy can be dated back to 2330BC at the Tomb of Akmanthor, also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”.  In the tomb, there are pictures of two men having work done on their hands and feet.  Massage is also referred to in 30 different chapters in the Nei Jing, also known as the “The Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon”, where it describes the different massage techniques and how they should be applied for different ailments and injuries.  Hippocrates wrote in 460 BC, “The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing.”
