In 40 hours it will be a brand new year, most of us will wake up feeling as though it is just another holiday- a day off from school, a day off from work.

Most of the time when we make resolutions for the New Year, our resolutions tend to be self-centered. Resolutions such as losing weight or stopping smoking are generally about you and you alone. This year, as you make your New Year’s resolutions, expand your pledges to include actions that will impact your relationship. Perhaps you need to stop yelling or complaining, be more accountable for your mistakes or spend more time simply having fun together. As an incentive, remember that your efforts… Continue

There has been a lot of bashing of business these days in our political discussions. There are, no doubt, some in any field of endeavor who lie or cheat or abuse people in the process of getting to the top, but as a whole, we should honor, not discourage those who have the courage to launch out on their own and start their own business. As someone who has worked in a variety of capacities -- for large academic institutions, stable government, the judiciary, a medium-size estabished law firm,… Continue

Most of us will listen to a familiar song as we ring in the new year, but some of us won't understand the lyrics. The song traditionally sung at midnight is "Auld Lang Syne," a very old Scottish song. Scottish poet Robert Burns is credited with writing the lyrics in the 1700s, but the melody is thought to have preceeded the lyrics.
New Year's has always been a big holiday in Scotland, to this day even topping Christmas, in that many Scottish people gladly work Christmas Day so they… Continue

(ARA) - Whether heading into the work force for the first time or perhaps being shuffled around by the economy, employees and future employees are evaluating and re-evaluating their career paths.
For most, long gone are the days someone cupped a child’s chin in hand and asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

(ARA) - Having a good hair day could mean spending money on salon appointments and several products to look as good as you did when you left the salon.

"There are many ways that we can trim our hair care expenses, from going to the salon less frequently to using fewer products," says Dr. Paradi Mirmirani, a dermatologist and assistant clinical… Continue

Yesterday I blogged about running, and outlined a few tips for those of us who are approaching our running with a new vigor. It is fast becoming yet another one of my many passions. (VERY surprising for those of you who know me well.)
Even at 5:30, on a holiday week, there are a LOT of people out running around Lake Hollingsworth. (Today is Hill Running Day in our training for the Strategic Wellness Challenge Team 2010.)

When I awaken on Day Four after a laser treatment at Mondello Medical Spa, my skin no longer feels like sandpaper, but rather like a surface that has almost been sanded smooth. Showers are the only time my skin seems to exfoliate. The peeling of large pieces of skin that I imagined would shed never happened, only small flecks.
My skin glows with a natural-looking rosiness. I am officially out of hiding days sooner than Dr. Mondello predicted. Even without make-up, I don’t feel… Continue

A while ago, while studying for my Wellcoaching certification, I ran across an article called The Making of a Corporate Athlete.
The basic premise was that sustained high achievement demands physical and emotional strength as well as a sharp intellect. To bring mind, body, and spirit to peak condition, executives need to learn what world-class athletes already know: recovering energy is as important as expending it.

My face has begun to exfoliate. It’s not the peeling of large pieces of skin that I imagine. Only tiny, dark color pin point dots of skin begin to rub off when I wash or touch my face. I begin the day with certainty that I won’t attend the night’s parties. My face is still inflamed and splotchy. I take the service elevator at my condo rather than run into people in the building. In the afternoon, I venture to the hair salon for the appointment I rescheduled from yesterday, hoping I’d present a… Continue
