Physical Wellness

What’s the key to staying active?

Find something you like to do that gets you off the couch and away from the computer then working out doesn’t feel like work. I love bike riding; it’s a chance to be outdoors, explore and breathe fresh air. Do whatever brings you joy. What did you like when you were a kid? ….Do that!

Emotional Wellness

The search for JOY…

Joy can be found in many places. I love to write, travel, eat good food and be anywhere near water to boat, paddle and swim.

Lakes, oceans, rivers and parks are calling our names. It’s a great time to be in nature – de-stress. The effect happens almost immediately and has lasting benefits.


“Writing helps me seek the truth about myself, my passions and the world.”
