A Note From Val

Happy August!

How is it that when August arrives the month seems to fly into September? In some ways, August in northern New York is the best. Summer crops are being harvested and the farmers markets are loaded with locally grown sun-ripened tomatoes, peppers, corn, and other delights of summer. A trip to the weekly market is on my list for Wednesday. Looking forward to it!

August Wellness Challenge - Practice Earthing

Our topic for August is earthing or grounding - connecting to the energy of the earth. Last month, I briefly introduced you to grounding for health and well-being. This month we will look at this practice in more depth.

Grounding, or earthing, is simply connecting physically with the earth and its energies. You may already be familiar with the concept of grounding. Modern homes accommodate three pronged plugs (one is for a grounding wire). Electricians, computer repairmen, even surgeons ground before working with electrical equipment to prevent damage to equipment and the humans using the equipment.

Earthing is the same basic idea. Read more here

Grounding has a somewhat different meaning for energy workers. The lovely meditation on this page fosters your connection to the earth and the cosmos energetically and physically. Enjoy.

Stand Up Every 15 Minutes. Compelling research now tells us that prolonged sitting can have a tremendously detrimental impact on your health, even if you exercise regularly. Your body needs to interact with gravity in order to function properly, and this has to be ongoing, throughout your day. (quoted from

Here's an easy way to supercharge your salad greens: Iceberg lettuce has a nutrient density score of 18.28 (and no taste). Switch to romaine (63.48) and mixed greens (often in convenient bags) with watercress, beet tops, leaf lettuce, spinach and chard (70-10!) Wondering about kale - 49.07. All good.

As usual, some of the shared graphics were most popular, but I don't want to violate copyright, so do head over to our facebook page and take a look.
