WHAT'S YOUR THING? A Review of Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist - PART 1

Aug 17, 2018
In Shauna Niequist’s Present over Perfect, she quotes Richard Rohr who said, “The skills that take you through the first half of your life are entirely unhelpful for the second half.”  The book was a Mother’s…

WORKPLACE WELLNESS

Working at a computer station all day can take a toll on the body. We often hear phrases thrown around regarding posture, work station ergonomics, stretching, and strengthening. But what does this actually mean? More importantly, what does this look like? Repetitive activities, lack of mobility, and…

HEAT, HUMIDITY, AND HYDRATION

What a string of hot, humid days we are having!  I keep looking at the weather forecast and asking, when will this break??  My lawn is drying out, my veggie garden refuses to grow, and my dog hides in the shady corners of the house.  Even I feel less motivated to move around these days, although I still…

COOKING WITH KATIE - SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

Watermelon salad, you say? Sounds interesting right?! I have to admit the name threw me off at first. For me, watermelon is to be enjoyed at a picnic table on a hot summer day, preferably with cold watermelon juice dribbling down my chin. But listen, I have found a new refreshing way to enjoy watermelon…

EXERCISING ON VACATION

Happy Summer 2018! The summer season has begun, which means long days of sun (we hope), warm weather (we hope, again), and for many of us....VACATION!  We look forward to this all year long, as a getaway brings exploring new or favorite places, trying seasonal foods, and a change of routine. One routine…

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

Life is so much more interesting when we diversify our experiences, and having variety in our lives is beneficial for both the body and mind. One important way to add such variety is in movement.  With several hundred muscles and joints in our bodies, we are inherently designed to move in countless ways.…

BIKE FITTING TIPS TO PREVENT OVERUSE INJURIES

The snow has finally melted, the trails are drying out, and the rain has washed away loose gravel from the road. I have been eager to get out on the bike and soak up the elusive Vermont sunny summer rays. Before this happens, I wanted to discuss bike safety.  While wearing the proper protective equipment…

HOW TO BOOST YOUR BRAIN HEALTH WITH FOOD

I often look for  foods that will give me energy, help me curb cravings and provide me with lots of nutrition and vitamins. I never give  too much thought about eating for my brain health, memory, focus and concentration. With age and being busy at work or with kids, we may not notice if we are becoming…

MY YEAR TO CLEAR

I have a hard time getting rid of things. Old clothing, bedding and purses huddle with shoes and board games in the closets of now spare rooms. An abundance of photographs lay in bins along with drawings and notes written by my children on yellowed pieces of paper. The notes are so faded that only I…

COOKING WITH KATIE - 3 INGREDIENT BROWNIES

If you read my last blog recipe, you would know that I am a self-declared terrible cook.  I forgot to mention, I am also a terrible baker.  For some reason, I am truly incapable of sifting, measuring, rolling, and I'm very prone to over pouring and burning. C’est la vie! That’s why I love this particular…

CURLING - IT REALLY IS AN OLYMPIC SPORT!

You heard me – curling REALLY is an Olympic Sport!  Four of us found that out a few weeks ago when we participated in the Howard Center’s 2018 Curling Challenge at Cairns Arena in South Burlington.  We PT360ers love fundraising events, especially when it takes the form of a fun challenge, so of course…
