Want to know my favorite vitamin?

Vitamin R. Vitamin R is the least expensive vitamin that you can find on the market. It’s not one that’s really talked about all that often. It doesn’t even come in a box, but wowzer- it is a super healer and it’s really potent at this time of year.

Vitamin R is that rare vitamin that we all need. It’s the vitamin that supports repair and rejuvenation and it’s known as rest.


There is something to be said about putting yourself out there in the world. To accomplishing things and doing your work. There is also something to be said for taking a break and falling into deep rest.

We all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of this time of year. We’re all trying to make special moments for the loved ones in our lives and that takes a bit of effort. But, there is a deeper calling at this time of year. Do you feel it?

It’s the calling of the darkness.

The darkness beckons us to break free from our patterns and our doings to spend a little more time reflecting.

As women, we are constantly doing for others. We give to our children, our mates, we extend to our friends, our neighbors, and our communities. And from time to time, it is so important that we take a break to give deeply to ourselves. Truly, truly, we can only give as much as we are able to receive.

I just wrapped up the last hormonal healing circle with 13 amazing women. This was the first time that I offered my work in this circle form. And, it was truly transformational.

One woman’s thyroid nodules are shrinking, another busy mom has dropped weight and changed her eating patterns, a third gal is cycling regularly, and a forth reports that she has finally broken through her hormonal stuckness. I am so proud of all the women who joined me over the last three months. They have taken their health into their own hands and now they are glowing in the results.

I am a big believer in “right” timing. I know you’ll know when it’s your time to take your health into your own hands and learn how to balance your hormones for good. If you’re feeling the call to go deeper, I am right here ready to be your guide.

In the meantime, I hope you can take some time off during the holidays and spend a little time replenishing your store of Vitamin R.

What to do when Life throws you a curve ball

From time to time, even I get into a slump. Since the flood in Boulder, my attention has been on “other” things. I’ve been carpeting my basement, juggling the kids and school, and sharing more of my work on-line. Every now and then life gets a little topsy turvy and sometimes those things that are so necessary to keep us running smooth go to the bottom of the list. Things like eating well, having some down time, and breathing fresh air. So what’s a gal to do when the self-care takes a dip downward? I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that I’ve been using to get myself back on track.

1. Put your self on your list. I live by my lists. I am a forgetful cat and my lists really help keep me on track. I separate my list into different categories. One part of my list is for work, another for my art, and a third is for my family. When my self-care slips, guess what I put on my list? Yep- I put myself right on top! I don’t need oodles of “away” time, but a little alone time can go along when we need to get back on track.

2. Schedule myself in. Number 1 and number 2 might look like the same thing, but they’re not. Every now and again, I‘ll put my on my list and I still don’t take the time to get away. That’s when I have to make some dates and put myself into my schedule. Sometimes a simple tea or a massage is all that I need to right my head and get back in the flow.

3. Dress Up. Have you ever noticed that it’s hard to wallow in yourself when you’re looking sharp. I can easily slide down the sweatpants and t-shirt path. Who doesn’t like to be comfy? But dressing up does have its benefits. When you look good, you feel good. And it’s a whole lot easier to take care of yourself when you’re feeling good. So now, I’m really curious. How do you get yourself righted when life is throwing you a curve ball?

Come on the ride with me and learn how to boost your thyroid and balance your hormones. And I’m looking for just the right gals who are ready to dive-in and change their health for good. Whether you live in Boulder or not, I’ve got the answers that you’ve been waiting for. Check in with yourself, maybe it’s your time to sign-up and make the commitment to your health. Believe me… you won’t regret it.
