Health and Wellness: When Is Play a Good Thing?

Play, Key to health and wellness
Hey you, play time…you’re not getting any younger!

Here is a rather funny twelve-minute TED Talk conducted by Charlie Todd the creator of Improv Everywhere, a group that creates absurd and joyful public scenes. Laughter is indeed great preventive medicine for the mind, body and spirit.  Take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and watch!  Oh, by the way, when is play a good thing? Continue reading

Five Part Series: Weight Loss Myths and Facts

I often have really interesting conversations with family, friends and people I meet  about the big picture strategies and the challenges around adopting the health and wellness lifestyle.  I have learned through these conversations that we all want good health, that is indeed obvious, however, we are confused as to what good health is (it really isn’t the absence of poor health,) what are the good health and wellness habits one needs to adopt and how does one adopt these habits and still enjoy life (I am not sure why these are mutually exclusive.)

Invariably though, the conversation will meander to weight loss strategies, so I have put together a 5 part series entitled “Myths and Facts about Weight Loss.”  Here are the 5 parts to the series:

  1. Meal Times
  2. Types of Food
  3. Carbohydrates
  4. Weight Loss Diets
  5. Habits and Belief Systems  

We will tackle one myth/fact a day for the next 22 days, in the meantime, feel free to share any myths or facts you would like addressed and I can add them to the series.

As well, I suggest you make sure to sign up for the RSS Feed by Feedburner found on the top right hand corner of this page so you don’t miss on any of this helpful information on weight loss.

And as always, I look forward to your feedback and words of wisdom.
