According to The Ayurveda Institute, "Ayurveda is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science."

Research says that over 75% of Americans want to be in shape, but only 31% of people work out on a regular basis. Why? Many of us think we don't have the time and resources to actually get fit!
The realty is, we are wrong.
Working out can improve your body, but also reduces stress, anxiety and increases mental health. The benefits of working out on “a” regular basis are undeniable, so how can we make working out actually happen in our real lives with so little time?
Join Lucia & guest, Matt Vaccarelli from Axios Training and Performance to find out how YOU can balance work, life and exercise. Matt will give us REAL & SIMPLE ways you can actually work out regardless of your time and resources.

How did he do it & how can you too?

Get happy & well at work NOW!
I promise myself almost every morning that I'll meditate and if I'm being honest, it's only 50% of the time that I hold true to that promise. Once I walk out the door or get going into my day, I forget about my meditation practice until I am stressed out and forced to take a time out, but what if it didn't have to be that way?
The good news is, it doesn't! Research actually shows that if you are trying to establish a meditation routine, one of the best places to do it is actually at a work, and the results are always a more happy and more peaceful state.
So how can you get Zen? And why do you want to add this 3 min practice to your life? Find out now as Lucia is joined by meditation guru Swami Varadan. Swami and Lucia will share their own personal experiences with meditation at work, how and why you MUST give it a try, and the results that will lead to a happier and healthier work life!

Once a week we like to give a mood booster to get your weekend started right! (Disclaimer: this movie may not be suitable for younger seekers.)
I was sick last weekend and took some time for R&R that helped clear up my cold with a quickness. (That, a heavy dose of Vitamin C and some of my magic smoothie potion. Will share more on that in another post!)
While I was relaxing I wanted to watch a movie to lift my mood, self esteem and do more than just make me laugh. I found one that accomplished it all, I Feel Pretty! Full disclosure, I am not a huge Amy Schumer fan. (Sorry Amy!) Yet this movie hit the spot.
Here is why:
