Tune-Up Tip – We’ve heard again and again that smoking kills. Something we do every day that could be just as lethal.

Rhythm of Life

In this segment, I give you an inside look at my attempts to live a healthy life in a high-tech, hectic world – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I share my struggles and triumphs so that you know you are not alone.

If you have any suggestions for how I can stop checking e-mail first thing in the morning, leave a comment below.

Tune-up Tip

Sitting for extended periods of time is associated with all kinds of problems, from strained neck to foggy brain, diabetes, and a higher mortality rate. What can we do?

Feature Segment –The Story of “Finding Your Groove”

Lessons learned as I have found my own groove:

  1. It takes courage to ask for help
  2. We need one another
  3. Read and listen
  4. Take control of our own health
  5. We have a finite amount of energy.
  6. Establish proper boundaries.
  7. Integrate who we are in every aspect of our lives..
