There are days like today when being a part of the media affords me opportunities I might not otherwise get. Today, I spent the afternoon at Trinity Christian Academy in Addison, listening to Avery Johnson speak to their high schoolers. He is an enthusiastic speaker and a generous soul. It was clear that he loved talking to these kids, sharing his experiences and insights with them. In fact, he would make a great teacher. At one point early in his talk, he actually pulled a young man out of the audience that was talking and not paying attention and made the guy stand behind him on stage throughout his entire presentation. He definitely commands respect!
From stay-at-home moms to CEO’s to women in the armed services, American women lead busy, stressful lives. Although a little pressure can stimulate creativity and enable us to achieve more, too much stress is unhealthy both physically and emotionally and can seriously interfere with our interpersonal relationships.

Betty Murray, CN, HHC, RYT. Betty is a nutritionist and holistic health counselor. If you read her bio online, you learn that she is committed to seeing each person as a unique individual and creating a health/eating plan unique to you.

As I have gotten older it has gotten harder to lose the weight, to find the energy and focus to follow a plan for any length of time. I am too busy, too tired, too stressed, don’t care enough, you know the drill, too many excuses.

As I move forward into a new year and hopefully a new me, I loved her ideas for creating a morning ritual. Mine is haphazard at best although I love rituals. I do find it hard to build new habits. How about you? Do you have a morning ritual? With two young kids at home, I find the only way to get anything accomplished in the morning is to get up before they do. That can be a challenge some mornings, but maybe if I knew what I had to look forward to, it would motivate me to get up!
