  • Holidays are best time to teach kids to give back

    The holiday season is a perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service.
    Start them out by choosing a charity in your own community; talk to your children about the charities they would like to support.
    If you decide to donate to a food bank, give your children the money you decide to spend on donations and let them choose the food items at the grocery store.
    Thoughtful selections give them a chance to think about what some who are less fortunate might need.

  • HARMONIZING HEALTH

    I had a client named Bill who was caught in the belief that men are not supposed to cry, and that emotions are for women only. He had become a victim of his own rigid view of life and of his fear of feeling anything.
    He told me he had a concern of losing control if his feelings started coming up, so he used his thoughts to push them back down. In his holistic health consultations, we started a process to release his longtime repressed feelings and improve his distorted concept of what was required of him to be considered a “man.”
