In this covid crisis, here are some wellness tools to help you & your team(s) resist the coronavirus.
Get started with free webinars and cheap trainings.
Sign up for occasional emails.
Let us know what you need.
Most of all, take care of others and yourself.
It doesn't have to be complicated. In fact it's better if it's not. Wellness can be grassroots. It can be cheap. It can be fast. But usually you need a spark, a leader, or some support, if not all three.

Gabby leads this 10-min abs circuit (while Susan struggles to follow). Along the way they discuss endorphins, which are nature's painkillers, and which are created through exercise. We all need exercise right now, to boost our immune systems, tone our muscles and MOST IMPORTANTLY, lift our spirits. For more quick workout videos, visit our YouTube Channel.
"When we were roaming the tundra in various parts of the world, we depended on each other for protection, from predators, we depended on each other for a stable food supply ... Turns out we were better off together. Over thousands of years, that became baked into our nervous systems, such that if we were separated from our tribe, it placed us in an automatic stress state, because we knew ... we were at greater risk of either starving or being caught by a predator. Even though our circumstances have changed dramatically since those hunter-gatherer days, our bodies, our nervous systems, our biology is very similar to what it was back then and when we are sparaeted from people, when we feel separated regardless of how many people we have around us, we enter into a similar stress state."
Dr. Vivek Murthy released "Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Somtimes Lonely World." This quote is from a 3/23/20 interview with Meghna Chakrabarti on the public radio program, On Point. For the full interview, please visit the WBUR.org website.
How can I breathe at a time like this,
when the air is full of the smoke
of burning tires, burning lives?
Just breathe, the wind insisted.
Easy for you to say, if the weight of
injustice is not wrapped around your throat,
cutting off all air.
I need you to breathe.
I need you to breathe.
Don’t tell me to be calm
when there are so many reasons
to be angry, so much cause for despair!
I didn’t say to be calm, said the wind,
I said to breathe.
We’re going to need a lot of air
to make this hurricane together.
