It's that time of year again! Cold/Flu season is upon us... with the plethora of medicines, drinks, teas and tinctures out there, what do you find most helpful? What works for you to keep the cold at bay or to help ease the symptoms if you catch it? One of my favorites is a "Ginger Honey Switchel", which is a quick overnight fermentation of apple cider vinegar, raw honey or blackstrap molasses, fresh ginger, water and fresh lime juice.

It's time for the 2016 Run through the Holidays Challenge!

Rules are simple, run/walk at least 1 mile each day from Thanksgiving until New Year's Day. Record your distances here and see how many miles you can get by New Year's!

To complete the challenge you must cover at least 1 mile each day, it can be an average of 1 mile per day. These miles must be intentional miles that you run/walk, and not just the distance you cover during the day using a fitness tracker.

If you have any questions, please post here. Best of luck!

How important are clean hiking trails, lakes, rivers and campgrounds? How about clean parks and sidewalks to raise a family in? Do you take the time to reduce, reuse and recycle to avoid filling up our landfills?

"Mindful morning practices are important for everyone and anyone, not because we all need to live like or become zen masters but because it's a way to be nice to ourselves.

When we are thoughtful, it's more natural to extend that kindness to others. Especially if we rarely take time for ourselves in the morning, it can be a powerful shift to begin each day with affection and appreciation for our minds, bodies, and the day ahead."
