The warm weather has arrived in Florida (fortunately without the high humidity yet). If that’s not your experience where you live, can you imagine? Pretend that you’re trading in your wool socks and closed-in boots for “spring/summer attire”? Where I live, that means flip-flops and slides – the topic of my post today. So, what’s wrong with these free-wheeling shoes? Plenty. Especially if you’re someone who is on their feet a lot and doesn’t take preventative measures to keep them healthy and strong. As an experiment, don your fave flip-flops . . . → Read More: Flip-Flops and Your Feet

A friend of mine works part-time as a coffee barista for Starbucks. On one of his many busy mornings, he looked up to once again see what seemed like a never-ending snake of caffeine-deprived eyes eagerly scrutinizing his every move.

At that moment, the Starbucks Rule – as I later named it – was born. . . . → Read More: The Starbucks Rule

Everywhere you look these days, you will see mountains of anecdotal and data-driven evidence on how “un-relaxed” our society is and how that chronic level of stress is playing havoc on our health. If you want to “kick-it-up a notch” in the relaxation department, then I suggest considering how to use hot and cold mineral stones within a reflexology session.

I recently got into a conversation on Facebook with a new reflexologist (in another country) on whether or not reflexology “fixes” illnesses in the body. She believed that what she was doing and her skill at delivery of those techniques could “fix” (her word) another’s physical ailments. That was important to her. Before sharing my thoughts on this subject, let me first just state that in the United States, anyone making claims to be able to “fix” someone’s health imbalances better hold a medical license before they open their mouths. Otherwise, they may find themselves in serious trouble for practicing medicine without a license! That said, I loved the opportunity to examine this subject. I discovered that, sometimes in my own life, . . . → Read More: Who Gets Credit?
