Here we are at the transition – fall into winter, heading into a new year. How was your year? Did you get some time away? Did you have time to reflect – time to step back and think about your life and work, your projects, relationships, or your health?
The fall and winter holiday season is my favorite time of the year. I feel a little more pep in my step as I look forward to family gatherings, beautiful holiday lights and – of course – the delicious food. I am often asked, “How do you get through the holidays when there is so much temptation for decadent dishes and sweet treats?” My response is, “I enjoy the food!” I’m not one to deprive myself of these holiday treats and I don’t think you should either.
There has been some exciting and interesting nutrition news in the last few months, particularly surrounding organic foods. We’ve talked with so many of our women to help them make the best decision for themselves and their families, so we thought we would share with our entire community!
I’m grumbling about my challenges today: too many things to do, not enough time, not enough money, can’t make headway on my projects, gaining weight, menopause weirdness, sprained my ankle . . . but then I pause. I take a breath . . .
I’m actually grateful for my problems.
If you’ve spent any time online in the last few years, you’ve likely heard the phrase “Giving Tuesday” as the holidays draw near. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 by the United Nations Foundation in response to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and occurs the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
More than a Hashtag
The power of social media has launched #GivingTuesday participation to new heights; as of 2017 the event was celebrated in over 150 countries!
I recently heard someone describe the mental chatter that keeps you awake as “night chatter.” I think that’s a very appropriate term.
Many people talk to me about their struggles with sleep and most are complaining about night chatter – the mind that won’t turn off.
So, what to do?
That is the one word we can describe our 5K with this year, for a “Sea of PINK” took to the streets of West Chester and all united for the women of Unite for HER.
I’m often asked this question: “How is yoga for cancer patients different than other types of yoga? “ There are many ways we’ve adapted yoga to serve cancer patients.
We are delighted to introduce you to Lynn Rosenzweig, creator and coach of our 5K training team, the Cynwyd Trail Blazers. Lynn is a licensed physical therapist and cancer exercise specialist with additional certifications in osteoporosis, running injury treatment, and Kinesio Taping. She is a breast cancer survivor herself, and an avid runner who was eager to share the joys of running. Lynn recruited her son Josh to help train the team, and he has been with our team every step of the way as well.
