The Clean 15:  Foods considered to be safe(r)

Have you experienced this too?  And we have also found that the organic produce can fall victim to this conundrum, though less often than for conventional produce. To obtain the most...

Choose a Positive Psychology Approach

Choose a Positive Psychology Approach

In simple terms, positive psychology focuses on what’s working rather than on what’s not working; it asks what’s right rather than what’s wrong; the emphasis is on utilizing strengths instead of fixing weaknesses (although please note; positive psychology doesn’t ignore faults, weaknesses and limitations.

You helped me last year, around this time, with my son, Patrick – who is thriving by the way!!!  I hope your ears have been burning because I have been singing your praises and forwarding your website like crazy.  I so appreciate you and the work you do, how you support families in supporting their children’s unique learning styles.  I have got to get more of your cards!  As a massage therapist, I listen to a lot of clients tell me their frustrations… makes for easy referrals!

Mostly I’m thankful to Cathy Dick, for helping me a lot with previous decision making and daily planning. She has helped me put into practice a mind-set to be something that I wish to accomplish by the end of each day to the end of the year– focus on that, and make sure I do things in terms of preparing myself mentally and physically before I start.  She has a lot of great resources that she shares freely too.  You can trust her to do what she says she’ll do.
