Have you read any good books recently?

This book, "The Little Book of Hygge" by Meik Weiking was a PURE delight and joy to read.

I highly recommend it!

It is written by the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Meik Wiking walks us through the philosophy of Hygge, the Danish secrets to happy living. 

Denmark is repeatedly at the top of the list for the world's happiest countries, so I was curious, what's the secret?!

What makes the Danes so happy?

Did you know that Social Support is the #1 factor that determines if people are happy?

Having someone you can turn to in a time of need is critically important for maintaining happiness. 

Who is that one person in your life?

Perhaps send them some love today, just a quick note to say you care?

It was so good, I wanted to share some of the key take aways with you.

I took some notes while reading because I wanted to practice the Hygge Manifesto. So I figured I'd share with you too!

Have you ever desired more connection to the women in your community?

Have you wanted a safe space to share your story, not to get advice or judgement, but just to be listened to?

Have you ever wished for friends who would accept and appreciate you- just as you are?

If so, you are not alone. 

I have found this sacred community though a tradition known as women's circles. 

I have had the honor of hosting and attending women's circles and they are so sweet and powerful. If you have not heard of a women's circle before, essentially it is a safe and sacred space for women to come together to share life together.

Sounds broad and vague? It is a little.

The magic truly happens from establishing a safe circle with a few guiding principles and then letting each women offer her own gifts and words to the collective. Women's circles have been around for thousands of years and they can come in many beautiful shapes and sizes.

If you are feeling called to rise as a leader in your community, and to shar...

1) Eat Breakfast: You want to support your blood sugar (which supports your energy levels) and make sure you start the day on the right foot. This can often get skipped especially if your the host and want to get everything all set up. It can also get skipped for the false logic of "saving calories" for the big meal - which often backfires completely because instead you show up like Godzilla running down the buffet line eating 5x more calories than you would have if you ate a solid breakfast. Save Godzilla for xmas morning when you open presents and do yourself a favor by eating breakfast on Thursday.

There are three key factors that distinguish mammals from all other species. According to the Oxford dictionary a mammal is "a warm-blooded vertebrate animal of a class that is distinguished by the possession of hair or fur, the secretion of milk by females for the nourishment of the young, and (typically) the birth of live young."(1) Humans are animals. Women secrete milk to nourish their offspring and this has happened since the start of the human civilization. One could argue that this lactation, our ancestors only form of food as infants, is the very foundation for all human life to flourish and is thus the reason why we are alive today.

In the last century we have seen incredible technological advances that have revolutionized our world for the better....and in some ways, for the worse. the supposition that baby formula is superior to a mother's breast milk is one of the greatest catastrophes of our time. This belief in and of itself that has been pushed by large food manufactures(...

America has a prevalent issue of health inequalities through lack of a universal healthcare system and it is literally killing more people in our nation annually than all homicides combined. Amongst those most highly effected by this catastrophe are the people indigenous to this land. Although the Declaration declares, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”(1) it is obvious that all men are not created equal. This “land of the free” treats it’s citizens disproportionately and this has a tremendous consequence for the health of many people. The World Health Organization focuses on the global effect of health inequities and defines them as, “avoidable inequalities in health between groups of people.” (2) Today, there are many reasons why our citizens and specifically, Native Americans, are dying from a lack of healthcare, finances, and medical support. In this blog post we will discuss how health inequities impact all Americans, how health inequities sp...
