In today's fast-paced and interconnected world, it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of other’s lives and simultaneously not feel included “in the loop”. These feelings of missing out, living vicariously through others, or believing you’re alone may contribute to a more negative headspace.

When we find ourselves going through a particularly challenging experience, we often withdraw from our social groups. As we discussed the thoughts and feelings that come with a cancer diagnosis in “After the Diagnosis” blog two weeks ago, it is common to feel alone, isolated, and even...


Spending time outdoors improves our memory, productivity, creativity, and concentration! We discussed this in Outdoor Well-Being, making the summer months perfect for taking advantage of warm temperatures, bright sunshine, and fresh air. As with most things that can improve our overall well-being, however, there is a certain level of awareness...

Last week, we painted a picture as to the importance our environment and the people in it play when we set our sights on a goal! We start with motivation, but it’s that big picture of intrinsic growth and satisfaction PLUS extrinsic support and common forward movement that significantly increase our chances of success. And as you may have experienced in the past at some point in your life, when those you love are also reaching and hitting a...

picnic in the park.png

Imagine a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, some cheese, and a basket of fresh fruit, all set out along the French riviera for you and your family to enjoy the original “piquenique” al fresco in the mid-1700s. Sounds delightful, yes? Well, we may not have the French riviera outside our back door, but we do have so much of what it takes to create a beautiful picnic for family and friends. For you, it may mean the red gingham blanket strewn...

it is 2021.png

Again, it is not as though we wake up January 1st and everything is different. BUT, it is a good reason to start a new routine or better yet, a new attitude toward a healthy lifestyle. There are so many areas of our lives we can change. Where does it start for you?

Exercise more and eat healthier hit the top 2 spots – as usual. Why do so many people consistently ‘need’ or ‘want’ to change these two behaviors? Interestingly, losing...


Approximately one-third to one-half of the American population has experienced significant stress, anxiety, or sadness that was difficult to cope with alone over the last year and a half. Yet, in many instances, coping with these feelings alone seemed to be the only way to cope. In 2021, the spotlight shines on not only the value of healthy relationships in general, but also on the ways to nurture relationships, regardless of the external...


2021 Here We Come!

There is something refreshing about a new year! It is an odd cultural thought pattern if you think about it–nothing changes on January 1st when you wake up that is any different than any other day… except your attitude and outlook, and that is EVERYTHING!

As a behavior change coach, we often simplify models to a triangle including 3 elements for successful change…. Skills and knowledge can be taught, but...

Why Do Positive Family Relationships Benefit Our Well-being?

Under the right circumstances, family relationships are encouraging, reliable, and last a life-time. Especially in your parent’s case, they see you grow up through all the glory of your less-fortunate moments– sometimes when friends aren’t always there to count on. These enduring relationships– with your parents, siblings, grandparents, and otherwise– are of...
