Comments Off on To Our Mighty Millennials

Much has been written about the millennial generation – entitled, coddled, lazy, and self-absorbed. While some may agree with those descriptions, I do not.

Comments Off on Spread the Love

Many awoke this morning feeling sad, scared, helpless, and marginalized. The United States Government was effectively overturned last night.

Comments Off on Why We Feel Guilty Turning Away From The News

I am a news junkie.  I watch The Today Show as I get dressed in the morning, listen to CNN, NPR, and CNBC as I travel to and from work, and read online articles as my “water cooler” time. My day is finally complete if I catch NBC Nightly News followed by the 10 o’clock

Comments Off on We Feel Anxious and Depressed at Times, And it’s OK!

No one is immune from Mental Health challenges. That’s right, no one. May is Mental Health month and what better time to dismiss the notion that someone is immune from having a mental health flare-up. I know, we all want to deny it; it is not cool to admit any sort of mental health imperfection

Comments Off on How My Orangetheory Workout Enhanced My Coaching

Recently, my daughter invited me to join her at an Orangetheory Fitness class.  I was reluctant; no, I was scared.  It had been many years since I had stepped outside my comfort zone and I knew that was exactly what would happen at OTF.  On the other hand, I couldn’t say “no” to any opportunity
