Year By The Sea — The MOVIE!

Year By The Sea — The MOVIE!

May 23, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 10 This is so exciting!  A favorite book(s) is being (could be) made into a movie.  A few years ago a client turned me on to Joan Anderson’s first book, Year by The Sea, and I devoured it — and all the sequels, too. Although my circumstances were different… Continue Reading

Celebrating Nurses: What Works and What Doesn’t

Celebrating Nurses: What Works and What Doesn’t

May 8, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 8 Have you thanked a nurse today? It’s National Nurses Week, a time of recognition and celebrations for hard-working and often under-appreciated nurses. And when I say thank a nurse, I mean acknowledge one whom you know personally.  Find a nurse and say thank you. Do you have a… Continue Reading

Rebecca Katz: Ready, Set, Taste!

Rebecca Katz: Ready, Set, Taste!

April  25, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 7 I love experiencing a master at work. That’s exactly how I felt a couple of weeks ago when Rebecca Katz presented her “Power of Yum” cooking demo program for Legacy Health’s “Meals that Heal” series here in Portland. I consider Rebecca a master because she exhibited a blend… Continue Reading

Meetings – Stress Less?

Meetings – Stress Less?

April 11, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 6 I read an article earlier this year that listed the 10 most (and least) stressful jobs.  Do you think Event Coordinator made the list?  At either end — most or least stressful?  Guess! Many of you reading this are event coordinators (or that is at least one of… Continue Reading

Doubtful about Mammograms? Plus…Fun with FoodPorn

Doubtful about Mammograms? Plus…Fun with FoodPorn

Feb. 27, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 4 You may have seen it in the headlines — a large and rigorous study is casting doubt on the value of mammograms in reducing deaths from breast cancer. This, like many other health scare reports in the media, can cause quite a stir among the public — that… Continue Reading

Matters of the Hearts

Matters of the Hearts

Feb. 13, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 3 February — it’s the month for matters of the heart — both the beating physical entity and the emotional heart. As I looked back in my archives, I noticed that over the years I’ve written lots about heart health and heart health speakers, but little about the emotional… Continue Reading

Would Your Audience Die Laughing?

Would Your Audience Die Laughing?

Jan. 23, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 2 The headline caught my eye:  “Laugh at Your Peril, Study Says.” What? What could that mean? So, I read on . . . it seems that a scholarly review from a British medical journal describes the many harmful effects of laughter — things like dislocated jaws, hernia protrusion,… Continue Reading

Mindfulness and Fun

Mindfulness and Fun

Jan. 9, 2014, Vol. 12, Issue 1 Happy New Year! The holiday decorations are put away, and I am at my desk trying to catch up and take care of clients; and I’m noticing some residual holiday fog in this re-entry phase. I could blame it on the weather, but fortunately for us here in… Continue Reading

Sharing a Little Comfort & Joy

Sharing a Little Comfort & Joy

Dec. 19, 2013, Vol. 11, Issue 25 Being in the motivational speaking business, I’m more likely to reflect a cheerful take on life than a negative one. But the truth is that most of our wonderful motivational speakers’ stories and messages stem from some life-changing occurrence (or occurrences), that weren’t so much fun to experience.… Continue Reading
