  • Got lemons? Make lemonade

    I can recall hearing my elders, not necessarily my parents, offering me a bromide to assuage my anger and/or angst with the dubious gifts life brought. Their motivation was clearly understood as an effort to ease my way into acceptance of whatever irksome event, person or experience waited in the wings of the day.

  • Try infused water to hydrate

    We’re definitely into the heat of summer now. Here’s a quick reminder: when it’s hot outside, you need to think more about hydrating. This simply means providing your body with the fluid it needs to keep itself healthy.
