  1. How Gratitude Is Healthy

    With the holiday season upon us, we are reminded that the significance of these days extends far beyond the food or presents. Rather, it offers us many opportunities to give thanks and reflect on the things in life we are most grateful for. The practical concept of regularly expressing gratitude may be foreign to some, and especially challenging as we navigate our fast-paced, responsibility-packed lives. But slowing down to express your sincerest gratitude is worth the time and has more positive effects than you may realize—including benefits to your health and wellness. Let’s take a minute to consider what gratitude is, and how it’s connected to happiness, so that you can create more in your life and feel its positive effects.

    Gratitude IS:

  2. Your Body Recovers When Rested - Let It!

    Even with the assistance of modern medicine and virtually infinite scientific studies into sporting injuries, athletes are getting injured more than ever before.

But, not anymore. This year, Joel Embid underwent surgery for a broken navicular bone - his hand was broken.

  3. Sarah's Blog Is Back: Friendships & Walking

    I have found that the best way to get outside and go for a long, healthy walk is to make a date with my best friend, Meg.  Every Wednesday evening we get together and walk for an hour, no matter the weather, even if it’s raining or snowing.  It’s catch up time, and a commitment to our friendship and our health—so we can live long lives and be around into old age to tell tales of our adventures, our kids, and someday our grandchildren. I've had to say no to all sorts of other offers on Wednesday nights, things I would have liked to do, a dinner, a movie or even extra income from giving a talk or a workshop.  I got this idea from another friend of mine, one of the healthiest people I know, who makes a date with her husband once a week—a date that can never be broken—to walk to dinner somewhere. They are one of the happiest couples I know.  I always admire their commitment. I walk and exercise with my husband, but we fit these times into
