APRIL 26, 2016
Greetings!

Earlier this month my "gang" of high school girlfriends got together in Florida for a week to celebrate our joint 70th birthdays--all born in 1946. Some of the group have been together since kindergarten, gradually coalescing a cohesive group of 18 through our junior and high school years. Only 13 of the 18 were able to make the Florida birthday party--a good turnout.
    We pondered why the group has stayed connected for over six+ decades. Politically and religiously/spiritually, we are all over the map. From Trump to Sanders and within each political party there are different choices. Some are Christian in the fundamental and non-fundamental sense, some Jewish, some no religion, others who classify themselves as spiritual. The one thing we have all agreed upon over the years: We do not talk politics or religion at our gatherings because we value the group's integrity too much. We've mutually chosen happiness and unity over seeking to be right--which is what divides.
    The unanimous vote about what has kept us together is our sense of humor and the  medicine of belly laughter when we get together--as One.

The Wellness Tree: The Dynamic Six-Step Program for Rejuvenating Health and Creating Optimal Wellness

Dr. Justin O'Brien uses time-tested, ancient techniques and modern psychological discoveries to expand the vital mind-body connection-proving that wellness is not just being healthy. Each chapter deals with a key concept in wellness, including: attitude, breath, food, movement, rest, solitude, self re-creation, why we get sick, and the future of wellness. Each one is followed by a practice session that vitalizes and energizes, repairs and restores, creating a new outlook on life. The sessions are a mixture of mental and physical workouts that can help to repair the damage done by the stresses of modern society.
The Wellness Tree poses the question that only you can answer: "How well do you want to be?"  READ MORE>>
