Unwrap Peace, Not Pressure

Unwrap Peace, Not Pressure

The holiday season is upon us, and we often find ourselves sending out countless “Happy Holidays” messages to friends, family, and colleagues.

Embrace the sunset

When you run a business, lead a professional community, are a mother of three, and juggle with a thousand other things in your life – sometimes it’s super hard to do things that fill you with energy. You know it would be great to read a few chapters. To drink a cup of coffee/tea slowly. To walk.…

Let’s get that Exercise Done!

Let’s get that Exercise Done!

I have to admit, I’ve been lazy in the last few… years. Yes. Before that, I did run. I did orienteering. I did Tai Chi. It would be easy to say I stopped exercising because I got a new baby (twelve years ago!). Then two. Then three. But it would be just a bad excuse.…
