The business of balance

The business of balance

 Bee Talk Buzz, by Vicki Kallman, a Queen Bee “It is the New Year and I want to have more work/home balance. I am tired of feeling guilty for taking time off from work…or feeling guilty for spending too much time there. There are just not enough hours in the day to get it all done. By 10PM, I am completely drained and sadly, I feel my important relationships are suffering. Even the relationship with myself is taking a direct hit. Trying to be Superwoman is not working! So…. What can I do? Big changes seem too daunting. What little changes can I make to have more balance in my life and feel good, again?” Cheri and I hear this all the time with our clients when they are emotionally drained and want more joy and fulfillment. Working ladies and stay at home Moms are both saying the same thing. Everyone seems to be doing too much; stressed and running on empty. As fitness and health professionals, I believe...

Sari Says: Build a Better Bowl to Better Health

Sari Says: Build a Better Bowl to Better Health

I do love a great newsletter. Notice I said GREAT. The monthly letter waiting in my inbox from My Wellness Counts was colorfully delicious. (Sounds like the tag line of an unhealthy breakfast cereal, doesn’t that? Colorfully delicious…I digress) It was an easy ready, contained a lot of provocative points about nutritional debates I found balanced, fair and thought-provoking and had beautiful pictures to enhance the read. It inspired me to go into the kitchen and try a little Vegan spin on health, or at least write a blog about it. So here is what I had to share! BUILD A BOWL TO BETTER HEALTH Nutrition is a funny science; because experts can scientifically prove opposing theories and seemingly all be right, it tends to lead to confusing and conflicting information that leaves us wondering: “How do I know what is really healthy?” For instance . . . there are those who advocate that dairy is necessary for calcium absorption and bone growth, while others contend that dairy is harmful, linked to cancer...

It’s Time to Banish Back Pain

It’s Time to Banish Back Pain

by Alicia Cuglietta, Integrative Yoga Therapist  It is estimated that over 80% of the population will experience back pain in their lives at one time or another, often becoming chronic. Misuse and underuse of our bodies are often the cause: We sit too much, often with poor posture, we stand with poor posture, we don’t exercise or stretch, and sometimes we are overweight. One of the biggest contributing factors is stress. But let’s look at posture first: Our bodies are built on a plumb line, meaning we are meant to be as upright and vertical as possible. When we have perfect posture, the muscular involvement in holding us upright is minimal. The muscles don’t have to work hard at all to support us. When we slouch, have forward head or stand in a position that juts one hip out, for example, our muscles counteract by trying to bring us back to that plumb line. This causes chronic muscular contraction and pain is often the result. Exercise & Stretching: The...

Too hot to workout in this sizzling Las Vegas heat?

Too hot to workout in this sizzling Las Vegas heat?

Here we are in the midst of summer in Las Vegas and it is a hot one this year.  When it’s dreadful to even attempt to do a hike or a morning run in this heat, how do you keep your cool for the next 3 months while still maintaining a good level of fitness? Welcome Ali Jividen’s Advocare and it’s arsenal of 80 supporting products. For me personally, as much as I love the outdoors, I workout inside my garage early in the morning. Even then, with the heat, I need to be properly supported with my energy levels and hydration.  One product I can’t go without is Spark.  Spark is a unique blend of over 20 vitamins and minerals that work in a perfect synergy to provide ultimate energy and mental focus.  I drink it in lieu of coffee every morning 30 minutes before my workouts.
