  • Barefoot BABY!

    Barefoot BABY!

    Barefoot Baby The warm weather is upon us which means we strip off the layers including our shoes. It is that time of year when we cover our feet with flip-flops, sandals, or nothing at all. The feeling of grass, dirt and sand under our feet is so calming and rejuvenating. We love the way it feels. But what happens to our feet when we go from our “cast” shoes to barefoot shoes? Our foot muscles have atrophied, our mechanoreceptors have deteriorated, and our awareness of our feet has diminished. So, how do we reconnect with our feet? We remove all the barriers between our feet and the ground. Shoes come off, socks come off and if you use orthotics, they come off too. Allow ....

  • Celebrating May!

    Celebrating May!

    Celebrating May It’s May! Time for the weather to stay warmer, the flowers to bloom, end of school celebrations to occur, along with Mother’s Day, Tulip Time, Memorial Day and my Birthday! I love my birthday and I like to celebrate the whole month. I truly celebrate my birth with a 90- minute step class, Raeanne-a-Palooza Step Extravaganza!! It started as a one-time only 50-year-old birthday party celebration but has grown into a yearly event that reminds me of what I am capable of doing now as I celebrate my 59 th birthday this month. I love step. It’s my favorite workout in May. I know a lot of people who don’t like their birthdays. They don’t ....

  • Spring Creates New Life

    Spring Creates New Life

    Spring Creates New Life Spring is on its way. The snow is melting, the grass is exposing itself, the birds are returning and chirping, the animals are shedding their thick fur, the sun is shining, the temperature is rising, and the flowers are budding. Spring is the epitome of new life. This season brings out excitement, new goals and playfulness in all of us. We replace winter coats with spring jackets. We replace the confining, heavy clothing with free moving, light clothing. We replace unmotivated mindsets with energized inspiration. We replace our “stay inside” mentality with “let’s play outside” attitude. We burst out of hibernation and into the ....

  • Your Choice

    Your Choice

    Your Choice We are confronted with choices all day long. My alarm goes off, do I get up or hit the snooze button? Do I lay there a while longer or pop out of bed? Do I have time to shower or not? What do I want for breakfast or should I not eat breakfast? Do I pack a lunch or buy my lunch today? What should I wear? How should I style my hair? What jewelry do I wear or choose none? Then what coat to wear? So many choices; it can be overwhelming and exhausting. All this even before I walk out the door to choose which way to drive to work. And then what happens when I make the wrong choice? I give up already. What made me think to write about choices this month is that my husband, Gerry, ....

  • Happy Love Month!

    Happy Love Month!

    Happy Love Month February is the month of LOVE. Love for your significant other, your parents, your siblings, your children, your family, your neighbors, your friends, but most importantly Love for YOU! We don’t often speak about love for self. And when we do, we tend to feel selfish, conceded, or arrogant. The self-love I’m speaking about isn’t close to being selfish, conceded, or arrogant. It’s really the opposite. It’s about taking care of YOU so you can serve OTHERS better. It’s the whole concept of: if cabin pressure is lost on an aircraft, you are directed to put YOUR oxygen mask on FIRST, then assist others with their masks. You aren’t any ....

  • Shake It Up!

    Shake It Up!

    Happy New Year! How do you prepare for a new year? Set goals? Create resolutions? Focus on an intention for the year? How do you determine what you want to accomplish in the new year? How much thought goes into it? Whatever you do at the beginning of January, does it set you up for success throughout the year? Or do you go full out for 4-6 weeks and then lose interest? Do you tend to make the same resolution every year, only to fail in completing it? Is 2023 going to be different? YES! This year will be different! I invite you to SHAKE THINGS UP this year! Let’s look at 2023 with a new perspective! Take some time over the next week to ask yourself and answer these two questions: ....

  • Merry and Happy!

    Merry and Happy!

    We say, “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas”, but do we make them Happy or Merry? As we move into the Holiday Season, we are pulled in many different directions and add so many “to-dos” to our daily list. But do we really need or want to do all those things? Do we need to purchase a gift for everyone we know? Do we need to bake all the holiday goodies? Do we have to purchase a new outfit to wear for every party this year? And does everything have to be perfect? Is this how we’re meant to spend our holiday season? Are we meant to get so frantic and overwhelmed that we miss the point of the season all together? Only YOU can answer these questions. ....

  • Gratitude


    We are moving into the season of Thanksgiving, gratitude, family and food. Many of our clients are sharing they feel they are in a dark season of life right now. Understandable, yet controllable. Gratitude is a mindset. We can control what we think to some extent. We can find good in everything. Alice Morse Earle stated, “Not every day is good but there is something good in every day.” You just have to look for it. In all my research for my Are You Enough? Happiness Project, I found the number one path to happiness is gratitude. Any other path following gratitude was debatable, but gratitude was always number one. Where does gratitude come from? From within ourselves. In order ....

    What emPowers YOU?

    What emPowers YOU? As the season changes into Autumn, you may be faced with changes in your life. As you witness the leaves falling from the trees, the days getting shorter and a more detailed daily regimen, you may experience anxiety in returning to school, starting a new job or possibly a new exercise regimen. With this you may notice changes in your emotions, thoughts and body. Your brain may begin to feel overwhelmed, your muscles may begin to tighten, your stomach may churn or your heartbeat may quicken. With this you recognize your thoughts and emotions truly affect your physical being. Echart Tolle states, "Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind ....
