Partnership - Where do you fit in?

I am so very proud of my team mates and grateful to be a part of such a wonderful partnership.

The truth is - We all deserve to achieve greatness in so many areas of our lives, but it is certainly not always a clearly defined path. Listen to these encouraging words from John Maxwell, a message to us all, especially to those who are searching for the right opportunity, it may just be a click away!

Teamwork does make the dream work. ~ John Maxwell

How do you do something grape for your heart?

Like so many other's I've talked to - once you do something kind, either for someone else or for yourself and it feels like the right thing to do...You feel good about it inside and that does improve your inner strength! There are those of us who also challenge our own physical and inner strengths with discipline and determination through meditation, yoga, exercise and more; but eating proper foods to help maximize our own body's well-being is probably one of the most important ways we can feel good about ourselves.
With so many choices to help improve your health and heart, I've learned that the combination of exercise and proper nutrition is key. I want to share this because you probably already know that this is true, but how often do you do something grape for your heart? Daily, weekly, monthly or whenever?
I'm excited to share my experience with you because I feel better and more in control of my own health now than ever before. I've started to take better care of what I eat, how often I exercise and proudly add to my diet - daily nutritional supplements that truly compliment my lifestyle and have made a difference giving me more energy and a positive outlook! Even my PCP has noticed that my blood levels and overall health are better than ever :-)
I'd love to hear what you do to feel that you do something grape for your heart and how often? So please share a tip or two. If you want to know more about my amazing grape health discovery, please send me an email or comment so I can follow you back with details!

When is your family meal time?

As a busy mom, It's so easy to find ourselves caught up in our daily multi-tasks and with each family member having an endless "to do" list that demands a response at the speed of lightning. If this sounds familiar then it's really important to stop and ask ourselves:  When do we devote 15-30 minutes in our busy schedules to sit with family and enjoy each others company over a meal?

There is something special about being able to sit together at a meal, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner with the family. One of the many important things I've learned as a parent is to take quality time aside and make it a daily habit to create a family meal moment that brings everybody together without any interruptions.  If we stop and consider the value of 20-30 minutes each day with our family, we will build priceless opportunities that will encourage healthy communication and lead to a stronger family connection. This social habit is not only a way to develop one's social skills in life but if you think about it, it also improves to strengthen the family's relationship as a unit. For us, a family meal moment is a time and place that everyone can relax, enjoy and help comfort one another. It's a therapeutic way to block out everything else and just be in the moment with each other, no matter what. 

Sometimes we may not want to sit, eat and talk, but even the simple act of being present and physically involved in a family meal gathering not only promotes family values but it also creates self- discipline.  So whether it's left overs or hot pancakes for dinner, or my personal favorite is pizza night - It's time to make time to get in the habit of sharing family time over a meal at home and doing it together! (no TV, phone calls, texting, etc.) 
What's your favorite family meal of the day and which is the most popular item on the menu? I'd love to share your experiences and hear what meal time works best for you and your family!
