What Are Essential Oils?


Because essential oils are gaining in popularity, I'll bet someone has mentioned essential oils to you over the past year. You may have experimented with them or maybe you'd like to know more about them.

So, today, I’m starting a series of Podcasts about essential oils. Why? Because I use them every day and know first-hand how beneficial they are.

In today's podcast, I explain what essential oils are and how they are used by the plants that product them.

Say What - Strawberries, Spinach and Kale - Most Contaminated Foods?


You’ve heard me say so many times, “you are what you eat.” You've also heard me encourage you to eat several servings of fresh fruits and veggies every day.

All of that remains true yet the Environmental Working Group (ewg.org) recently released the updated list of the dirtiest foods. By dirty, I mean containing the most pesticides which makes those foods unhealthy for us.

Beautiful, juicy, sweet strawberries are top on the list of the Dirty Dozen followed by spinach and kale. 

What should you do? How can you eat healthier and be sure your children eat healthier? Listen for more information. Visit my website, thyme4you.net, for additional information about healthy living.

Are You Anxious?


Do you feel worried, fearful or very tense about things? If so, you may be experiencing anxiety.

40 million adults in the US who are age 18 and over experience significant anxiety. That’s almost 20% of the total population! That’s a lot of anxiety!

What is even more disturbing is the fact 25% of teenagers, those are our children between ages 13 and 18, are affected by anxiety. This makes them more likely to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.

If anxiety is affecting your everyday life, you need to seek medical attention. In the meantime, here are some lifestyle changes that may help.

Just Let It Go!


Are you facing a physical move? Do you need to let go of some physical things in order to move forward into a better life?

Letting go of things can be difficult. It can be paralyzing or it can be liberating and sometimes it can be both.

As I prepare to let go of some things that have been in our family for decades, I’m experienced both so in this podcast I’d like to share some thoughts with you with the intention that if you’re experiencing either, or both, it will give you perspective and solace when needed.
