Come visit me on Sat. August 23rd at Precision Wellness Center, 
6500 Soquel Drive, 
Cabrillio  College.

Wellness Tip:
“pajama/play days”
 (vs. sick days). 
What if you planned to stay in your jammies a couple of days a month so you didn’t end up in overdrive pushing so hard that your body demands a break with a cold or flu?
Gift yourself a summer time  jammie play day.

Summer Inspiration:

santa cruzSummer is a time of the Heart... love for ourselves, our friends and family, our community and planet Earth at large. How big can your Heart be? How in love with life can you feel? Summer is the season to explore these questions.

"Source the Wisdom of Your Body"

In Traditional Chinese Medicine the emotion of Summer is Joy! 

If you’re not experiencing unexplainable spontaneous joy, now is the time and Wellness Care is the way. I have include an article below that compliments the article “The Ball of Life” featured in the last newsletter.

Late Summer marks harvest time and the season of YUM!

August 7th marked the half way point between the summer solstice and the fall equinox. Now is the perfect time to make the Farmers Market a regular weekly event. 

If you have not had an opportunity to sink your teeth into the Fun of Summer I'm here to remind you that the goodness awaits.

Eat, Play & Love... 


Stress Resilience vs. Stress Management 
thriving vs. surviving 
Human Nature... 
We frequently wait till we are in pain, emotional or physical, before we reach out for self care support. 
By this time we are feeling overwhelmed and are frequently in survival, just managing to keep our head above water. 

What if we oriented to stress resilience and Wellness Care?

Wellness Care keeps us in “the flow” where we are in touch with our creativity and can source ease and grace when we are interfacing with life’s inevitable circumstances. 
This allows for the opportunity to thrive and let vision guide us. Give yourself the opportunity to stay ahead of the “stress curve”. Decompress before you end up in stress management-crisis mode. 

Do you interface with the voices of self sabotage that stop you from implementing Wellness Care?
 “I don’t have time…” “It’s too expensive…” 
Wellness Care is actually more efficient and economical. If we make micro changes to identify our Keys to Vitality this has a HUGE impact on the long term trajectory of our health. 
“This is too indulgent…” 
Wellness Care is responsible. There’s no need to martyr your energy; your family, loved ones and community want you healthy and balanced.
 “I’m okay, I’ll just muster on…” 
It’s a service to everyone everywhere to embody joy. Join the “joy revolution”. The ability to tolerate suffering is over rated, and is actually destructive. Energy flows where attention goes.
I invite you to invest in feeling good for the greater good of all. 

If you need assitance designing a wellness lifestyle I’m happy to help. 
Jump on the joy revolution train, 
fueled by resilience, grace and ease!
