Sugar…Yum? We are born to love sweet things with our first taste of breast milk or formula. It’s no wonder we want more of it as we’ve aged. It makes us feel good for an hour or so, then the sugar crash begins. When we want more energy, we search for something sweet to eat. When we feel down, we gravitate toward the sweet stuff. When we have a craving for something, but we don’t know what, we reach for something sweet. Why is this? What kind...Read More »
As I continue to research, I find newly released information about foods and substances we should NOT consume. Today, I want to talk to you about beverages that contain artificial sweeteners. You know, that white stuff that tastes like a strange sweet chemical that food manufacturers add to products to make you think you’re doing something good for your body…when in reality, you’re not. I know you love your zero calorie desserts, yogurts and sodas, but...Read More »
It’s the end of the day and you are starving! On the way home you drive by at least a dozen take-out food joints and at least six restaurants. You didn’t plan to be working late, so in order to get something into your stomach before it gets later, you opt to stop to eat. Ennie meanie miney mo. Which of these places do I go? You finally get your meal and the next thing you notice is….it’s gone. What just happened? You’ve just woofed down...Read More »
The report is due in two hours. Or perhaps you’re in the middle of a mid-term exam. Or you’re making sales calls. Suddenly, bam! Around 10:30 a.m. and from out of nowhere you hit a wall! All you want to do is look out the window, or better yet, take a short nap. Hmmm…the first question that pops into my head is, what did you eat for breakfast? I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who has said it countless times: Breakfast is the most important meal of...Read More »
“Work-life balance was a mistake from the start. Because people don’t really want balance. People want satisfaction.”—Matthew Kelly, author Balance is a sticky subject among many people.

How can one possibly balance so many things? I’m going to let you in on a little secret here: You can’t! Balance. Is It A...Read More »
Have you ever downed an entire package of chips, crackers, or cookies? Ate pizza or cake until you felt sick? Drank more coffee or wine than your body wanted? Do you remember how you were feeling at the time? I ask because sometimes we overeat to help distract us from emotional pain. Think about it—have you noticed that sometimes when you overeat you’re not hungry at all? What you are is lonely. Or angry. Or sad. Or resentful. Or frustrated. Or something else? So...Read More »

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work! She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great! I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place! I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does. Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized. Can’t wait!!
