Weekly News, May 23rd

IMG_1666Sorry we missed last week’s update. We were busy dealing with the Southern California wildfires. Collette and Ric were evacuated along with Dax and his family. We are all safely home now, and so grateful for the firefighters and the rest of the first responders who put their lives on the line. Dax wrote a piece about returning to the trails after the fire, and hopefully Collette will share her story which involves some great music and a couple of police encounters. We want to thank the friends and family who offered to help, and checked up on us during this time. When natural disasters like this happen, it always brings things into perspective, and reminds us of what is truly important in this life, namely the relationships we have made, so again, thank you.

On to the weekly news roundup. Here are some of the things we have been reading throughout the week.

We love the new USANA foods video.

A new study shows that Probiotics, while beneficial to the digestive process, may also help women lose weight.


An entrepreneur shares lessons her mom taught her about being a woman in business.

Interesting thoughts on the “cult of busyness.”

An excellent article by Dr. Christiane Northrup on vitamins vs. drugs, and which is safer.

Two great articles on what being sedentary does to the brain: the first from Dr. Weil, and the second includes a great 7-minute workout. Everyone has 7 minutes. I’ve done this workout, and believe me, it will make you sweat.

The gift of an hour.

Have a great weekend.
