WHOLE SYSTEM RESET: Get inspired and committed! Ever noticed how January 1st, the beginning of the New Year, doesn’t actually work well to set new intentions or get a “fresh start?”  That’s because our bodies and minds are much more influenced by the seasons than we realize, and Winter is just not the time of year […]

The Truth About Positive Affirmations

THE TRUTH ABOUT POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS: this subject came up recently with a client, so I decided to do some research.  Many of us remember with with fondness the hilarious, ridiculous Stuart Smalley from SNL, proposing that “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.” I have not, personally, used affirmations to boost my self-esteem, […]
