By Cheryl Richardson
Driving in my car on my way to an appointment, I passed a church with a sign announcing the topic of their Sunday sermon. It read: “Are you a Warrior or a Worryah?”
As soon as I saw the sign I chuckled and grabbed my iphone to record the idea. Then, I spent the day thinking about ways to shift from being a Worryah to a Warrior. The way I see it, to be a Warrior means to take charge of your thinking, to choose to see opportunities instead of roadblocks, or to absolutely refuse to give in to your distressing mind....
The food-mood Connection
By Debbie Sarfati Steinbock
One of my clients, I’ll call her Jennifer, came to my office suffering from extreme fatigue and complained that everything in life felt like a challenge, including her typical daily routine.
Jennifer was always getting sick. If something was going around the office, Jennifer was the first one to catch it and the last one to get rid of it. Dave, another client, came to see me because he was battling a cycle of elation and depression in both mood and energy....

Tornado Storm Shelters To Sacred Nests
By Reverend Cathy Haven Howard
These are challenging, fast changing times right now. You probably know someone that has been affected by the floods, tornadoes or fires that have been sweeping our world right now.
When I was giving an interview recently, I talked about how setting healthy boundaries can prevent long-term physical pain and illness. I’ve considered this a lot lately, because it seems that most of the work I do with clients is based around feeling safe enough to set boundaries and avoid compromise....
Traditional origins and Benefits of the slow-cooking
By Jen Allbritton, CN
Although slow-cooking was introduced in the early 1970s, it can be considered a modern version of the time-honored traditional braising, stewing, pot-roasting and Dutch oven cooking methods.
