Your mental health and state of mind

As the world keeps turning, more issues continue to challenge our minds. Since we can not control the outside world, we must challenge ourselves to care for our mental health and wellness. We must stop pointing fingers and take responsibility for our happiness and well-being. I write this little reminder to all of you to let you know that our agency is here to help. Please let us know if you or a loved one need our assistance.

Get moving and never lose sight!

Oct 06, 2022

Movement is just that - movement!  Get up and do something.  And when you do
something you enjoy, it can become a form of meditation.  There is no right answer, no
one thing that will speak to everyone. However, I have discovered that when you give
people the opportunity to tap into their inner child, move, and have fun, they don’t even
realize they are exercising and practicing mindfulness!

Discover for yourself what you can do to feel energized, alive and refreshed.  I...

Sep 22, 2022

It is quite easy to improve upon your intellectual wellness, especially if you know where to start. Here are five great ways to cultivate your intellectual wellness:

Can Debt ever be good?

Although we try to avoid it, debt is something we all deal with to some degree.

Knowing how to deal with debt is an important skill everyone should have. Lets start with exploring the differences between good debt, and bad debt.

Beyonce and Beyond by: Michele Risa

Jul 06, 2022
We have an extraordinary number of events hitting our senses- from COVID, to guns, to abortion, to climate alarms like fires, droughts and floods, to famine, to war, to immigration, to forced labor and sex trafficking, to race and gender discrimination, to name a few.
 
Is this new? No, much has been happening for decades or centuries.  
 
Why does it feel so overwhelming? What’s different?  One factor is that many issues are no longer below the surface. Instead,...

Organize Your Life by Wendy Monteith

Jun 06, 2022

What Does Organizing Look Like to you? 

Pretty pantries, Clear bins and pretty labels, perfectly folded clothes and linens? Rainbow-organized bookshelves and closets? Minimalistic style? Purging everything because it’s driving you crazy? Or do you panic at the sheer thought of decluttering your precious piles of stuff, and making the decisions of what stays or goes?

What it looks like to me as a Professional Organizer … creating and implementing systems and solutions that...

Saving Sophie by Tracy Ryan

May 16, 2022

My story is not a conventional one. It has been fraught with roller coaster rides that are unimaginable to the average person. There have been a lot of extreme lows but incredibly high highs despite the tragedies that my family has endured over the last nine years.

At just 8 1/2 months old my infant Sophie daughter was diagnosed with a low-grade brain tumor called an Optic Pathway Glioma. These tumors have a 90 to 95% survival rate but an 85% recurrence rate. The only option for these tumors...

Challenge Accepted by Paulette Challenger

Apr 04, 2022

I am so excited about the release of my book Challenge Accepted.  It is a lifestyle book and autobiography of how I was able to change my self-limiting beliefs and build myself up from absolutely nothing.

Finding my self-worth, self-care, self-love, and the right tools have changed how I value myself today. If you’re not healthy, it’s tough to be happy. You should do what makes you feel good in life and cause no harm to others.

I am very fortunate to have found a spiritual...

Finding Balance in February by Daxa Chauhan

Feb 01, 2022

We are a month into the new year, and so many of us feel the stresses of life.

Many of us have had to pivot our way of working, be it in the house with our family, building our businesses, or working in our remote offices. Even if you have returned to work, you may be feeling like the large majority that your work/life balance is gone. We are spending more hours working, and we have increased responsibilities at work and no decrease in our duties at home. Living this unbalanced life is not...
