Thanksgiving is coming soon....

The weather begins to cool off in autumn, so its a good idea to eat less cooling foods like salads and raw foods at this time of year. To support the digestive system, soups and stews are eaten as their long cooking times are warming and the foods are easier to digest. Longer cooking times and heartier ingredients are used in autumn to help nourish the body and support the immune system throughout the winter months.

Before You Choose What Clothes to Wear this Morning, Read This.

I have been watching a bit of Queer Eye lately. I find it quite inspiring how the “Fab 5” take people who haven’t really thought about taking care of themselves before and inspire them to be better. They explain in the show that the way we choose to present ourselves in the real world (whether by chance or intentional) is a direct expression of how we are feeling on the inside.

Meditation Changes Your Body

Meditation Changes Your Body

Tell us how you recover from your multi-tasking, techno invading, stormy brain making day.

I believe meditation changes our bodies. You don’t need endless time to find your centre.  A 5-minute routine in the morning gets the job done.  Anyone can do it and the more consistent you are the easier it will become.  It trains your mind to focus on the moment instead of worrying about what occurred in the past or what could happen in the future.  More and more of us are looking for peace in our crazy-busy days.  Meditation is about putting down your juggling balls for few moments and taking a mental pause.

Easter Monday's "Left Over" Lamb Pie

It was a wonderful weekend at the cabin and then back home last night with everyone for dinner.
