Pamela DuMond has that awesome life and she loves to share it with people. (Best to find her on Twitter @Pamela_DuMond Read the rest of this entry »

Every trip to the doctor or even the dentist will involve meters and measurements to tell how healthy you are. Your temperature might be taken, your blood pressure checked, reaction time on joints, even hand strength is used to get a full picture. Those clues along with a blood panel will be used to determine where you are in a health matrix. Read the rest of this entry »

For many years now, science has linked gum disease and infections to heart disease and other illnesses. We are more and more coming to see our bodies as one whole system. Like a well-written story, everything works together. Blood circulates throughout the entire system and can carry health or illness with it. Read the rest of this entry »

Despite the title, this is not a cheerful holiday post. If you have been on this planet for a couple decades or more, you probably realize that creative people often have a demon called Depression in their make-up. We don’t wish for it, we don’t like it, and some days we can ignore it and go about our business. Other days, there’s nothing else in our brains. Read the rest of this entry »

If you are like me, you have encountered the word “balance” many times over. You eat a balanced meal, you balance your time between work and personal life, and you balance your checkbook when you absolutely have to. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m very lucky to attend a weekly weight-loss support group where we talk about nutrition, road blocks to health, and one per month we have our own personal trainer come in and work with us.

On the last Sunday of every month, I like to share part of what I have learned in my weight loss journey. To be a better writer, I need to get exercise, plenty of sleep, have good posture, and eat clean food. To me, that means eliminating foods Grandma would not recognize as food.

As writers, we are really good at sitting. We sit at our desks to write, we sit in coffee shops to write, we sit on a couch and watch TV and write, and we sit in comfy chairs for a live interview that will be on the national news later that day.
