Can You Survive Without Your Phone?

As we were rushing around to get out the door for our 4th of July weekend trip to the lake, I misplaced my iPhone and was forced to leave without it…for 4 days!  What at first seemed like a curse, ended up being a blessing!

How Technology Hyper-Ages Us

Hyperaged By Technology

When my parents passed over in 2005 the extent of their personal technology was a flip phone for emergencies, a towering home computer and their AOL email account. I often wonder if they came back today what would shock them the most about our technological world.

How We Run Meetings, Get Personal, Get Down To Business, Get It Done

Team Meeting

Being a virtual company is mostly all great — the freedom, working in your yoga pants with a puppy on your lap — or from a hotel room, solitude to create. And… it has challenges. #TeamDanielle is made up of a core team of 8 women + key service providers. The biggest challenge for me with being a virtual business was our team meetings.

Is Too Much Juggling Causing You Brain Drain?


Do you find yourself multi tasking non-stop and experiencing separation anxiety when your smart devices are not nearby?

I’m asking this question to myself as much as you, to remember to give my brain time outs from multi tasking and my smart devices.

Between the pressure to get more things in a day done than we are sometimes capable of, and the readily access to cool devices to use, we switch our brain frantically between tasks causing an overload of the brain’s processing capacity. The result. We burn out.

Spirited Sounds

Alexandra Heather Foss, Spirited Sounds

Where I am sitting right now a motorcycle just revved its engine and an inquisitive squirrel stopped its descent mid-trunk out of fear.  The engine has vanished down a curvy road but the squirrel remains still, afraid to shift position.  It watches me through the porch screen, wary of the sounds, the vibrations, the rhythm of a life force not quite natural, and when only the wind is left in the wake of the vehicle, the squirrel ripples its tail, as if testing the air for danger, and then dashes down the tree to a patch of lawn, careful to avoid the concrete road.

Teaching Our Kids to Move - Not Just Think!

Let’s get our kids moving their bodies NOW!

Three cheers for the study and article in USA Today by Amanda Gardner, HealthDay, "Experts: Recess improves student behavior." It's about time! I remember when my very bright, energized, and engaged son stood up after sitting at a desk for several hours and got scolded. I told his teacher, 'These kids need to move once in a while to keep their brains active." She disagreed. I am sure happy to see experts now waking up to how important it is to give our kids time to move throughout the day.

High Tech Low Connection


Do cell phones, texts, emails and socials in fact facilitate communications, or are they the ruination of real relationships? 

From even the analog Halcyon Days on, I was known as Gadget Girl to my friends. But as much as I adore my gadgets and technology, does constant tech babbling make us more or actually less connected to each other?
