WHAT WE ARE LOVING - JANUARY

Here's where we connect you with our favorite tips and tricks about all things health, wellness
and the messiness that is living in a human body.

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

Have a flex spending card? Qualifying as a medical facility, we take FSA cards for payment. PS: Our team qualifies for the Covid vaccine!

 

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO

In a noisy world that seems to just keep getting louder, we are grounding with Sarah Blondin. Her poetic brilliance and skillful meditation instruction helps us detach from our busy mind and tune into our feeling heart. Not just your normal guided meditation, Sarah somehow reaches in and massages our hearts. We reach for her meditations whenever we feel overwhelmed, disconnected, or afraid.

WHAT WE'RE READING

In a remarkable, courageous book,  How To Be An Anti-Racist, Author Ibram Kendi pushes those of us who believe we are not racists to become antiracists, and eradicate such ideas wherever we encounter them. At first what may seem like semantics, he offers a big "ah ha" moment when he defines ideas, actions, and policies as is either racist – that is, contributing to a history that regards and treats different races as inherently unequal – or it is antiracist, because it is trying to dismantle that history. 

WHAT WE'RE UP TO

We thought we were so cutting edge when we stumbled upon Taryn Toomey's The Class at-home workout, but it's been a thing for several years now. Not your typical "class"...you'll have to experience it yourself. Our heart rate sores, we get sweaty, feel stronger, and are adequately stretched, and at the same time feel grounded, centered, and more connected to ourselves. Yes, all in less than 60 minutes and we didn't look at the clock once.

WHAT WE'RE EATING

Not much....we're on Prolon! Our founder, Tori Paide, has a lot of experience with fasting and she's brought us this simple program that offers the astounding benefits of a full fast but with food that "mimics" a water fast. The five day program is really easy to follow, tasty, and after the first few days you'll feel full of energy when your body shifts into burning fat for fuel. Few pounds down may be a goal for you, but the real benefits are in the improvement in biomarkers for inflammation, blood glucose, and brain health. Call us for more information.

WHAT WE'RE WRITING

We were given a Tarot Card deck for the holidays and have been starting our morning out with a simple one-card reading. We love this ritual of a private inquiry into something we have been pondering and have been having fun with the interpretation. We are keeping a Tarot journal with notes on the experience so we can track how accurate the cards are and well...it's eerie accurate. If for nothing else, our morning reading reminds us that everything is unfolding exactly the way it's intended to.
