Summertime always throws me off the wagon. Not alcohol — I don’t drink. I mean, off the wagon of routine. The higher temperatures and humidity of summer, the laissez-faire days, create a heaviness that seems to block my daily intentions. It is one reason I welcome Sept...

This was the first time I landed in India and felt completely calm. Usually, as soon as I get here, the air hits me and I tense up with anxiety.  It takes me a while to adjust to the other side of the world. But this time when I landed, I felt a release. I guess I have...

It is that time when many of us set our resolutions for the New Year.

Having a resolution is a great way to make a positive change in your life. Building it into your life so it becomes a habit will help you achieve your goals. Focusing on the present, believing you can...
