As I begin this new year, I am cautious about expectations and hopes for 2021 to eclipse 2020. Things such as New Year’s resolutions seem a bit too ambitious for my taste this year when all I truly pray for is health and peace. …


“It is far more important to deal with the internal problem than the external symptoms.”

Dr. Caroline Leaf

Occupational Wellness is no easy topic…for anyone. It can feel complicated and out of one’s control. …


My last article was an introduction to the Dimensions of Wellness. Before I dive in to focus on each dimension of wellness individually, I would like to connect the individual dimensions back to an overarching inside-out well-being journey.
