  • Trailblazer Interview: Veronique Gauthier – Integrative Healing for MS

    Veronique started yoga in 2000, at the age of 34, when she was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS. At the time, she was addicted to the gym. She loved aerobics, steps, spinning and spent 8 to 10 hours per week in the gym – but still smoked 25 cigarettes a day.

  • Having a Bad Day? Head Here…

    Bad days happen. Sometimes you know why you are stuck and struggling, but don’t see how to change it. Other times you can’t see a reason for your mood, but still can’t get out of it. I know what that’s like, and I’ve made a list of tiny actions to shift your energy, your thinking, your perspective and hopefully shift your mood too. I hope these tiny actions make your day, (however dark) a little brighter. (Click to Tweet!) * Wear a hat, because hats change perspective and make nearly everything better. * Watch a duckling running. * Read something that makes you smile. * Wrap up in a soft quilt with…

  • ~ Behind the Scenes ~ My TEDx Talk: Dreaming BIG…and Being Invited

    You read that headline right, friend. I am on my way to becoming a TEDx speaker. (Click to Tweet!) Like, officially. (Yeahhhhhh!!!) Come May 9th of this year, yours truly will take the stage at the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury to give a Ted talk, on a theme near and dear to me: Misfits and Pioneers. To say I am thrilled to pieces would be a huge understatement. Pause. Rewind to 2013. I sat my writer-speaker self down and wrote three lofty goals: To be featured on the Huffington Post To speak at TEDx, and To sell my Healing Boxes in hospitals. These goals seemed next to impossible. Unachievable. Especially, the…
