Easy Answers

Tanya Geisler wrote a thought-provoking post: 24 easy answers. And the hardest answer of all. She categorized these answers in such a way that there's no doubt of their intent and importance. Here's a peek at one answer from each "easy" category:#2. Spend less, make more.#6. More water, less booze.#10. Loving your outside is an inside job.#13. Keep your word.#24. Don't worry about what everyone thinks.As for "the hardest answer of all," I encourage you to read her entire post, which won't take you more than a minute or two, and leave the hardest for last - where it's purposely placed.

Benefits of Massage

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of and advocate for massage. Any therapeutic healing practice that engages the body's parasympathetic nervous system - that "rest and digest" response - can only be a plus.If you ever wondered what the benefits of massage are, look no further than this awesome infographic:

Maybe all that data will encourage you to consider massage for yourself on a regular basis. Optimally, I'd suggest at least a monthly one-hour massage to truly reap the potential benefits.

Don't Should All Over Yourself

Wise words, indeed. They're words that could apply to the loss of person or pet. You can read about her grief process here.
