Inspiration From Ellen

Why Do You Workout?

I’m a noticer. I notice the not-so-obvious things about people, places and things, like how my dog, when sniffing, wiggles her nose like Samantha in Bewitched, or how in my new little hometown, there are quartz rocks mixed into 200 year old stonewalls.

Your Home Says A Lot About You

You and I know that moving is a drag. The sorting, packing and lugging is not on the top of our “favorite things to do” list, that’s for sure.  However, moving forces us to de-clutter. To organize. To take stock of what we really value. To cut loose the things that no longer serve us. Moving literally and figuratively lightens our load.

Wellness Ambition

I had a major epiphany today about wellness ambition, the desire to win at being healthy, and feeling and looking good. I always knew that deep inside everyone wants to be well (of course!), but on my walk in the woods with Roxy, I happened upon an overweight teenaged girl with more wellness ambition than I’ve ever sensed before.


Quotes That Inspire

You never know when your world is going to be rocked by words. I’m constantly finding inspiring elements in words, underlining sentences and marking passages with big stars and hearts in the margins. Every book - even fiction - I read with a highlighter in hand. Inspiration is everywhere…menus, t-shirts, any billboard within my vision line, shampoo bottles, etc.

Winter Tension

In yoga class recently the teacher used a brilliant term: winter tension. I immediately identified with it and thought, “That’s what I have”, tension that is caused by winter and everything that comes with it. There is no doubt that cold weather creates tension in the body. Cold=tension! I mean, even just imagining the cold, we tighten up and clench physically.
