Ever since I had accepted the job as a mom, I realized that being prepared before the celebratory events was a stress reliever. I have created a system based on my own “last minute” frustrations that help me stay prepared before the holidays, birthdays, spring breaks and etc.
We already know that Christmas is on Dec. 25th, Thanksgiving is in November, Spring Break is in March, school starts in September or August for some and we know the dates of our children’s birthday. Preparing for these festivities before they get near, help us as Busy Moms stay sane and sound avoiding the shopping rush, sale anxiety and last minute pickings. Continue reading →

Maybe you need a timeout?
You can’t concentrate on one task, you’re multi-tasking in your sleep, and body aches, feeling a bit run-down, you would pay big bucks for a nap and solace — it’s time for a TIMEOUT! Continue reading →

It’s been a week of life unpredictability and random thoughts, is it okay if I share my musings thus far?

On the serious side, make certain you are taking care of self – everything CAN wait, at the end of the day no one really cares. Sorry to tell you!
On Oprah.com, Dr. Oz says, These five pains could be a sign of big trouble.
I once had a patient who checked in to the hospital as she was having a major heart attack. As it turned out, she’d been experiencing intermittent chest pain and nausea for weeks, without realizing that these symptoms can signal impending cardiac crisis.
Everyday aches are a part of life—especially as we age. But before you brush off your symptoms, as so many people do (one survey found that 70 percent of people delayed seeking medical attention for a sharp pain), take note of the five warning signs you should never ignore
Butterfly. Cobra.Warrior. Just some of the many poses I experienced during a fantabulous yoga session courtesy of LUNA Bar’s (energy bars for women) Yogi Master, Nicole Pemerl.
I was somewhat intimidated by Yoga because of the various intricate positions such Sirsasana (headstand) and a lot more but I prevailed.
Nicole however, imparted upon the class that you meet Yoga were you are. There is no perfection in yoga. Yoga itself means practice and no one will ever be perfect, but as in all things, we can strive for perfection. So the butterflies that held space in my abdomen quickly found their own space.
Nicole’s one-of-kind direction was phenomenal.
For the first time I understood the purpose of yoga and as a result have embraced it as tool to improve my quality of life. During the quick 40-minute session I was able to focus on being in the now by focusing on my breathing and the various poses.
Although a bit challenging, I especially liked the balancing Tree Pose; choosing a target on the wall and focusing on that target while balancing on one leg. Yoga will be my time to embrace peace and silence.
Thank you LUNA Bar for such an enlightening experience.
