Simplify Life

Simplify Life

I am all about simplifying life’s daily routines and events, but it’s not always easy.  I recently completed a four-month business accelerator program at the Harbor, wrapped up three group-coaching classes and will start two new ones’ next week. And, like for most of us, spring has been a very busy time with family and friends. As a result, some of the...

What Does Stress-Free and Happy Mean to You?

What Does Stress-Free and Happy Mean to You?

It’s scary to start something new – especially when you are over 50 years old. But that is what I did when I began my health and wellness coaching company, Wellness Five, three years ago. Why health and wellness coaching? Why leave my comfort zone? I’ve done exceptionally well in real estate. Why not open my own real estate company...

What Do Turkey and Sleep Have In Common?

What Do Turkey and Sleep Have In Common?

Thanksgiving is the holiday when most of us stuff ourselves with turkey, cranberry sauce and pie, and then take a nap. It’s the nap that I’m wondering about here. Is it true that eating turkey induces sleep? Or is it simply eating too much of everything that brings on the z’s? So I did some research and learned that turkey...

8 Simple Tips to Find Happiness

8 Simple Tips to Find Happiness

“We are about as happy as we make our minds up to be,” one of my best friends said the other day.

What Two Minutes in a Day can Mean for your Life

Where were you last Monday afternoon? Like pretty much everyone else I was outside watching the total solar eclipse, a once-in-a- lifetime event here in Charleston. More specifically, I chose to watch it with 1,500 College of Charleston students, faculty, staff and “friends” who gathered on Rivers Green, behind Addlestone Library, to watch the heavens put on this astronomical show....

Do you have a Love-Hate Relationship with Social Media?

We are social beings by nature, but nowadays there is less time to do all the things we need to get done and still have time to connect with families and friends on a serious level. We’re like Pavlov’s dogs. It’s easy to get on social media for a “quick fix” of updates, entertainment and “likes,” and receive a quick...

Guest Post: What’s the Newest Way to Deal with Stress?

It doesn’t take long for something new and exciting to capture people’s interest, and the Fidget Spinner is no exception. Almost instantly, this gadget has created a “buzz” that is turning heads of all ages. But why? The Fidget Spinner was originally intended to hold the attention of distracted children. Now adults, especially those in high-stress environments, use them to...
