We’ve been here before.

With the New Year looming we’re sitting here doing two things – fondly (or not-so-fondly) looking back on the past year… and planning the next. We know what happens next though – things don’t go as planned. If they did… we wouldn’t be making “New Year’s Resolutions”… would we? So how about this time… we do the new year right?

Humans are dumb.

Let’s be honest here… humans do a lot of dumb stuff. We do these dumb things even though we KNOW they’re dumb. Some dumb things are just dumb, and some are dumber than others. What about the dumb things… that are dangerous? If you could SEE the danger… would people still think it was just “dumb” and not “downright stupid”? Would people DO it anymore? What am I even going on about?

How To Live In The Awkward Space Between Places

Waiting doesn’t have to be boring.

We’ve answered the question of “now what?”… but that’s not the end. “What’s next” might not actually START right away. It could be a training plan that starts in a month. It could be any number of scenarios, really. So the question now becomes… what do I do with myself until then? You have to figure out how to live… exist… in this awkward space between places?

Essential Oils 101 – What YOU Need To Know

STIF #53 podcast cover photo

Sometimes treasure is hiding in plain sight.

I don’t know everything… nor will I ever claim to. When I find some new information that I feel has benefit not only to me, but to others… I want to share it! In the not-too-distant past I discovered “essential oils”. I had seen them in passing but didn’t know what they were… and didn’t feel the need to investigate. As far as I knew they were just a small army of weird little bottles behind the counter at the natural food/supplement stores. When I went to NOW Foods headquarters in Illinois for a blogger event, though… one of our info workshops was all about essential oils.

Boy oh boy… what a game-changer!

I was impressed, intrigued, and I had to know more. From there, I totally fell down the rabbit hole, and I feel like everyone should know the benefits of this stuff.  THAT is why I chatted for an hour with Tina, Neil, and Alana from NOW Health Group (NOW Foods) all about “essential oils”. This episode serves as a primer on all things “essential oil” – think of it as Essential Oils 101 – What YOU need to know about them. This is also the kick-off to what may end up being a WHOLE YEAR’S WORTH of articles, posts, and recipes. So BUCKLE UP – this is gonna be a good one 😀
