Ends Regular Run

My Precious Grandchildren

It is a bittersweet moment as I write this post — my 150th — and as I make this my final regular post.  I started this three years ago as a fun project and as an activity to keep my brain stimulated. It has definitely been fun and I’ve never been at a loss as to what to write. I’ve always been on the lookout for interesting topics, at least to me and hopefully to you, too, and they have always come my way. However, a couple of months ago, I launched a “Gracefully Age” newsletter with my Gracefully Age Program, so I’ve decided to put my efforts into the newsletter. Please sign up for my newsletter on the Home page of my new Web site,

Additionally, everyone knows most seniors have health issues. Have you gotten together with your senior friends and noticed that inevitably, the topic of conversations revolves around health or most likely, lack thereof. Do these sound familiar?

  • My back hurts or my neck hurts or my knee hurts.
  • I’m a pre-diabetic or I’ve become a diabetic.
  • I can’t keep up with my grandkids.
  • I don’t sleep well at night.
  • Etc.

As an energy healer, I have studied and practiced a number of modalities, but most recently, I came across one called, The Emotion Code (TEC). Previous to finding TEC, I had studied another modality which I liked, but it was very hard to explain to my clients. TEC turned out to be similar, but uses words that my clients and I understand. So I became certified in TEC.

I am really excited about being able to help people and seeing their pain and problems disappear using TEC. Depending on the number of trapped emotions that the person has, it could be a very quick session or it might take several sessions. It could be done in-person, over the phone, or simply by my being your proxy. Understand that everything is energy and that you simply need the desire to rid yourself of your trapped emotions that could be causing any number of health issues or diseases.

As I say goodbye for now, I want to thank everyone for their support. As I shift my energies in other ways to help the senior population, I hope you will join me in my new endeavors. If you’re not getting up excited every morning to pursue your passion, then perhaps I can help. Check out the Gracefully Age Program and sign up for your complimentary session.

Good luck and all the best for the rest of your awesome life!

12 Steps to Healthy Aging

dragonsmokeThe following 12 Steps to Healthy Aging comes from the George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC. Are you on your way to healthy aging?

  1. Enjoy a diet low in fats and rich in fruits and vegetables.
  2. Get regular physical activity, at least 30 minutes a day.
  3. Have medical tests and screenings on schedule.
  4. Don’t smoke! Avoid secondhand smoke as well.
  5. Keep cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure under control.
  6. Watch your weight. Lose weight if needed.
  7. Get enough sleep and rest each day.
  8. Strengthen bones with the calcium, vitamin D and exercise you need.
  9. Always apply sunscreen before going out.
  10. Stimulate your mind with mental games and social contacts.
  11. Take your medications as needed and stay informed about your health.
  12. Think positively and find at least one thing to be grateful for each day.

The last one is my favorite. Recently, I started a gratitude journal. Keeping a gratitude journal changes your attitude in life. Keeping a gratitude journal encourages you to be on the lookout for what you’re grateful for and not for the negativity in life. Some people like to blame external factors (such as other people) for their attitude. But only you can choose your attitude. No one can choose to be happy or grumpy for you.

If you’ve not read FISH! by Stephen Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen, it’s a short parable based on the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington. Applicable to everyone, one of the points talked about is that you can choose your attitude. Written for the workplace, it is applicable at home as well. As a senior, you might want to take the lead in your workplace, even if it just starts with you. For more information on the FISH! philosophy, see

Everything happens for a reason and looking for something to be thankful for even in the darkest moment, can help you get through it.  And why just one thing to be grateful for? Why not at least five? Do you keep a gratitude journal? How has that changed your life? I invite you to share.

Here’s to your good health!
