Life and Health Coach
I have front seats to TRANSFORMATION. What can be better than that? I don't just listen to people so they feel good after a session of unloading. WE WORK TOGETHER to get RESULTS: Review, Reframe, Rewire --- this is my replacement therapy for negativism. I show people their blind spots. And because the individual makes the decision, the VICTORY DANCE is all the sweeter.

This is why we should all start breathing
by Remy Rippon via BensonHenryInstitute.org
Inhale and exhale.
‘You should really meditate’. It’s a phrase you’ve probably heard a handful of times from that friend who seems to exude endless zen by taking 20 minutes out of their daily routine to calm their mind, centre their body, and simply breathe. And, who loves to share just how great it is. Well, as it turns out, they’re not wrong.

Great news about the benefits of mind-body medicine from the Harvard Health Blog
by Daniel Pendick via health.harvard.edu/blog
This week, researchers at Harvard reported a potent way to keep the doctor away. And it isn’t an apple a day or a new drug — it’s a life skill called resilience. It’s the adult equivalent of crashing into a hedge during your first bike ride without training wheels, shaking the leaves and dirt from your hair, and thinking, “Okay, that wasn’t too bad. Let me try that again.”

Exposure to a narrow band of green light may reduce light sensitivity and headache severity.
Light sensitivity, or photophobia, is a frequent symptom of migraine headaches, which affect nearly 15 percent of the world’s population.
Harvard Medical School researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have found that exposing migraine sufferers to a narrow band of green light significantly reduces photophobia and can reduce headache severity.
The study was published May 17, 2016 in Brain, a journal of Neurology.
