On Creating, Making, Shadows And The Sanctuary Of Coloring

I'm a creator. I find meaning in the making and life in the meaning.

The Hole In My Heart

My relationship with creating has been like that of high school sweethearts, separated by college and marriage to later be reunited. They wonder why they waited so long to see and act on the depth of their love for each other. Since childhood I wanted to create something from the motion of my hands. I advanced from macaroni and macrame to drawing and gardening. Our house was filled with the fruits of my hands.

All The Things That Softly Kill Me

The light. Oh the light!

Inside out:

You will find me one day, delirious on my living room floor. I won’t have eaten all week but my bones will be pulsing light so your eyes will need to adjust. You will rush to bend to me, to inquire, and I will hold your face in my hands and whisper, “The gratitude is killing me.” I’ll smile and consider dying in your arms.

Is The Internet Killing Us? Let's Create Local Soul Tribes That Heal

The Tribe

As a doctor who runs a business that relies on the internet, I realize it’s a strong statement to suggest that the internet may be literally killing us, but I’ll give you my reasons for saying something so provocative. When you look at the scientific data, I think it’s safe to say that the greatest risk to your health is not a poor diet, a bad habit, or lack of exercise; it’s loneliness.  If you don’t believe me, there’s a whole chapter loaded with scientific data from reputable medical journals in my book  Mind Over Medicine. When scientists study “Blue Zones,” those places on earth where a greater than usual number of people live healthy, happy lives until over 100 years old, they all share one thing. They live in close knit, multi-generational tribes that take care of each other. None of them spend all day glued to computers or cell phones, chatting virtually with people they have probably never met in real life.

Take The Five Day EQ Challenge - Pause And Boost Your Emotional Intelligence - Part 1 of 2

Emotional Intelligence

Empathy occurs in the moment one human being speaks with another.”  – Alfred Adler Understanding Human Nature.

Without emotions, who are we?

Almost a decade ago, Dr. Daniel Goleman published his best selling book, Emotional Intelligence. He defined Emotional Intelligence as “the ability to recognize one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking behavior.” [1] Goleman was the brainchild behind the idea that non-cognitive skills, or emotional intelligence, are as important as a good I.Q. to succeed in the workplace.

3 Sneaky Ways Your Hormones May Be Sabotaging Your Weight Loss

hormones weight loss

Perimenopause brings a truckload of challenges with it, so it hardly seems fair that unrelenting weight gain is one of them. Meno-middle (weight gain in the abdomen) is one of the most common complaints of perimenopausal women. And most of them have been told that an extra 10–20 pounds is simply a rite of passage at this time of life and they should just accept their “middle-age spread.”

Nonsense.

New Year, Be You

New Year

With the New Year upon us, the annual “new year, new you” phenomenon is all around – in the worlds of advertising, media, self-help and more. And while this time of year can be a great catalyst for positive change in our lives, what if we made a commitment to live our lives and focused on who we are, and not so much on what we do, what we accomplish, what we look like, what we’re striving for, and more? One of best things we can do in this New Year is to focus on who we really are and what’s most important to us, instead of who we think we’re supposed to be.
