Hi everyone, Just wanted to post a quick blog to let any website visitors know that I will be leaving 5/8/2011 for disaster mental health response work with the Red Cross to Georgia (or somewhere near?) I will be away until 5/19/2011. I will attempt to check email and/or voice mail while away. Thanks for all positive thoughts and prayers for the people in the south who are recovering from the devastating tornadoes last month…
March 1 is the 50th Birthday of the Peace Corps program. This program was first introduced by President Kennedy and continues to encourage peace and understanding in many countries throughout the world. Peace Corps Birthday Congratulations to all current PCVs and those who served in the past!!
For basic information on using aromatherapy for emotional well-being, check out a recent article I wrote:
HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL!
I just read that tomorrow, January 3rd, is “Festival of Sleep Day”. Even though it is late afternoon January 2, and the sun is back in beautiful Colorado after an end of year snowstorm, it would be easy to ride on the energy of the day and not pay attention to the Festival of Sleep . However, what a gift we give ourselves tonite and in the new year if we establish regular sleep routines and honor sleep as our friend. Pillow time helps our immune systems strong, decreases inflammation (thereby helping protect against heart attack and stroke) and helps correct hormone imbalances. It also helps brain function and our mental and emotional health. So, it’s early to bed I will go and happy zzz to you all!
