Kindness as a Practice

Kindness as a Practice

Nov. 17, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 9 In light of recent campaign rhetoric, and election unrest, I think we can all agree that a little (or a lot!) of kindness is in order, so today I’m featuring an Oregon speaker whom I met recently. Linda M. Cohen is the author of 1,000 Mitzvahs — How Small… Continue Reading

Change Your Brain — with Play

Change Your Brain — with Play

Oct. 27, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 8 Health concerns are changing. If asked their greatest health concern, until recently most people would have answered cancer, or heart disease. Today the number one health concern is losing brain function as we age — being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or some other form of cognitive decline. In her… Continue Reading

Exciting New Beginnings

Exciting New Beginnings

Oct. 6, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 7 I didn’t plan a break from connecting with you, but when the website renovation project got underway mid-summer it took on a life of its own, pre-empting just about everything else in its way. I’m very excited to share it, as it has lots of new features as well… Continue Reading

Melanie Carvell: Making Wellness Fit

Melanie Carvell: Making Wellness Fit

July 14, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 6 “Oh boy, we’re going to exercise!” No kidding: that’s what I heard a little boy — about 4 years old — say enthusiastically to his pal and to the adult who was holding both their hands. Bella and I, out for our daily dog walk, were headed toward the… Continue Reading

A Hole in My Brain

A Hole in My Brain

May 12, 2016, Vol.14, Issue 5 May is Stroke Awareness Month, and I couldn’t be happier to introduce you to a stroke survivor, Gordon Viggiano and his wife, Jill, both of whom I greatly admire and respect. They live right here in my town, Lake Oswego, Oregon, so I’ve attended a couple of their local… Continue Reading

Grit, Grace and Gratitude

Grit, Grace and Gratitude

March 31, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 4 As longer days return and the flowers burst through in all their glorious shapes and colors, it’s tempting to focus on summer fun. And . . . it’s also time to get those fall women’s wellness and breast cancer awareness event speakers lined up. October dates are particularly hot.… Continue Reading

Humor to the Rescue

Humor to the Rescue

March 4, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 3 There are some things in life that are more difficult to talk about than others — suicide, depression and mental illness among them. Yet they are social issues that affect our families, communities and institutions. Mental health issues affect people at home and at work, and on a larger… Continue Reading

Smart Fats for a Healthy Heart

Smart Fats for a Healthy Heart

Feb. 9, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 2 Happy Heart Health Month! The Internet has made it easy to find information — and it’s often overwhelming, especially when it comes to the latest and greatest diet and nutrition “help.” There’s so much hoopla and promotion out there — at least in my Inbox — that I exercise… Continue Reading

Saving the Meeting with Laughter

Saving the Meeting with Laughter

Jan. 22, 2016 Vol.14, Issue 1 After a whirlwind holiday season, and now getting beyond the New Years resolution stage, I am glad to be returning to some sense of normalcy. For me that means back to business and a somewhat regular schedule. After my hip replacement in September, I’m back to yoga three early… Continue Reading

Talking Turkey About Family Health

Nov. 19, 2015 Vol.13, Issue 11 You’ve probably sat in a health provider’s waiting room filling out paperwork, and all of a sudden you’re faced with unexpected questions about your family’s medical history.
