Why being a therapist makes me a better ski patroller, and why being a ski patroller makes me a better therapist

I’ve been away from my computer for a few days, focusing on more exciting changes in my transformation! Being a Bowen therapist I can help people better control their pain, sometimes even completely eliminate it, and generally improve their health and well-being. This past year I have also become a certified ski patroller and enjoy

Insulin and belly fat

It is a beautiful snowy Monday out there, plans for today have mostly been canceled, so I’m using the time to read and learn. Dr. Mark Hyman, a medical doctor and nutritionist, has some amazing articles on his website. One that is of particular interest to many people – about weight-loss – talks about what

CANI!

CANI stands for constant and never ending improvement. If you take one small step every day, at the end of the year you will have taken 365 steps. And that’s how improvement happens. It is also very important to journal often, otherwise you won’t realize how far you’ve come! This is what I’ve been doing

Beliefs and values

 Today I reflected a lot about my 90-day transformation and what it means to me. I thought about who I want to be when these 90 days are over and what this transformation means for me. And it all starts from the beliefs we have about the world, about life in general and about ourselves.

At noon, although I had a packed lunch from home, I chose to eat what others were eating, and I realized after, that

Music feeds the soul

 Last night we fed our souls with Mozart at the Glen Gould Studio and by the time we got home I was too tired to write. Yesterday was a day “in the flow” – where I set the intention to make it a great day, and that’s how it was! And when you set the

What we learn and how much we apply

I’ve been thinking a lot lately that we read many books (or sometimes only partially read them), and take courses to grow personally or professionally, but we don’t always apply what we learn. We take the information in at intellectual level, but until we actually get it “in our bodies”, get it emotionally, we don’t

90 Day Transformation

Yesterday marked 9 years since the skiing accident that changed my life – for the better! I have been on an amazing journey these past 9 years and want to take it even further! I am committing to a 90-day transformation of many aspects of my personal and professional life and will blog about it
