WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: The importance of wiggling your toes

  Are your feet tight and stiff? Can you actually wiggle all of your toes? Here on the east coast we are moving out of flip flop, sandal wearing weather and into the season of socks and closed toe shoes. And so we are finding our feet more squished and compacted throughout the day. Most of us just get used to the feeling of being in shoes all day. We don’t even realize how tight all the little muscles and bones in our feet are. Something else you might not […]

WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: Why you need to know your self care kryptonite

WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: Breathe better – get your ribs out of your stomach

  Ever feel like, even when you’re just sitting around, it’s not that easy to get a deep breath? If you stop to notice — does it seem like your breathing is short and shallow, up near your throat?

WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: How to get more restful sleep

  When you wake up in the morning, do you feel like your body fully rested? Many of us bring our day’s thoughts to bed with us – which causes us to never really sink into our mattresses and let go of the tension in our bodies. Do you sometimes feel like you are laying on your bed, even hovering a couple of millimeters over it, rather than actually sinking in and really resting?

WELLNESS TIP WEDNESDAY: How to Stop a Bad Habit – Don’t Deprive, Replace

  Ever try to ‘willpower’ yourself into NOT doing something? You know, like stopping a not-so-healthy habit? How has that worked for you? It’s a nice intention, for example, to decide you’re going to stop getting that candy bar at the vending machine during an afternoon slump at work or stop staying up late bing-watching Netflix on a weeknight. But having an intention not to do something is rarely an empowering enough strategy to make a sustainable change. In fact, if the thing you’re trying to change has it’s own momentum, […]
