No coincidence that our chakras are these colors and that eating foods associated with the color of each chakra can help balance them. This chart will be super helpful when putting together your own chakra salad! Using these colors/foods as a guide will not only be great for your body, heart and soul, but also will end up making a really pretty presentation!

Having been a kid who did NOT enjoy P.E. or sports, it warms my heart to see articles about schools offering Yoga as a P.E. option. The only part of gym class I ever liked was gymnastics, and, I admit, square dancing. Still, I dreaded that hour as so many students do. Thinking I was not athletic because I didn’t do well in games like dodge ball (really? how many of us really loved having a ball thrown at us?) just made it worse as the years went on. Thank goodness for cheer-leading which often got me out of gym class. I loved my years of cheering.
In many ways, I am still a cheerleader. But I also love aerobic dancing, lifting weights, doing Pilates, jogging and yoga. So this morning I salute the schools that are offering Yoga as an option to fulfill the P.E. credit. The students who are taking these classes are getting so much more than just the credit, as any of that practice yoga know. They are gaining confidence, learning useful tools to combat stress, increasing focus and concentration and of course, gaining strength, flexibility and coordination.
It is never too late to start adding yoga to your life. If you are a parent, remember that we are the most important roll models in our children’s lives. Namaste.

There is so much going on in the world to be thankful for and happy about that I refuse to be frightened or angered by the news about viruses, terrorists, politicians, etc.
This morning, I am thankful to modern medicine and Dr. Murray Rosenbaum for (in the doc’s words, not mine) a PERFECT cardio ablation preformed on Mitch 2 days ago. If you or someone you know, struggles with A-FIB (atrial fibrillation) and are NOT familiar with this option, please ask me questions! While this cannot be considered a “cure,” we are feeling very optimisitic!
My gratitude list is too long this morning. I have written and deleted several times. I don’t want to sound like I am gloating. I do have to say beyond being thankful for the obvious, how much it makes me smile that my boys still love Legos and that my girls deal with it and can bond about it across many miles. All the pics and comments they shared these past few days on Facebook have made me grin from ear to ear.
