Accolades and Gratitude

Saturday, 13 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
When I was young, my sister and I would bring home awards or achievements that we were proud of and present them to our family. From music, report cards, or positive feedback from our teachers, we would place the awards on our family’s mantel in the living room. It wasn’t until a resent trip home I realized that a lot of the awards were still on the mantel. A picture my sister had taken when she first discovered photography, a plaque from school, and a group photo from a sports…

Lemon & Dill Chicken Sautee

Saturday, 13 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
Here at Brookhaven Retreat® LLC, we love the saying “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” What a wonderful expression to summarize the ability we have to redirect and turn situations around. Exploring the many uses of this one ingredient helps illustrate that it is what we do that makes the difference. As a child I remember my Mother’s motto was “when life gives you lemons…” and she sure delivered, with her expertise knowledge on redirecting and transforming experiences. Everything was always an adventure with her. She helped me have…

The Perfect Smile

Friday, 12 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
The expressions on your face serve as first contact in letting others know about your mood and how you feel. Smiles can be helpful indicators and a good way to tell those around you how you feel. Mastering the perfect smile for you can be an asset in photos and when making a first impression. Smiles have also been known to influence moods for the better and increase creativity and productivity. I don’t always feel like smiling, and sometimes smiles just aren’t appropriate. However, some moments call for a smile…

Veggie Roll

Thursday, 11 February 2016 00:00  by Casey H.
I have always loved sushi. It is always presented so beautifully, and with all the fresh vegetables and rice, it is a delicious and healthy option that is perfect for meals on the go. I’ve only recently started to attempt making my own, but have quickly discovered that it is not as difficult to create as one might think. Keeping it simple and using fresh ingredients is key, and being able to choose what veggies/fruit/meat you put into it, makes the options infinite as to what you can create. I…

Spa Hour

Wednesday, 10 February 2016 00:00  by Yolanda F.
Just the word “spa” sends special little shivers down my spine and inspires a deep breath that starts in the souls of my feet. Over the years, I’ve relished every pedicure, every massage, each wonderful facial, and even manicures and eyebrow waxing are tolerable as long as I’m in a relaxing setting with aroma therapeutic scents and soothing music playing. Bodywork is always my favorite and first choice for spa treatments because it does as much good for mental health as it does for physical health. In fact, researchers all…

Spreading My Roots

Monday, 08 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
Trees spread their roots in one area, anchoring themselves deep into the dirt beneath them; or at least so I thought. Reading a nature article a few weeks past, I came across a type of tree that transitions its roots to “walk” across the rainforest floor. Extremely slowly, the tree actually “walks” over several years as it grows newer stronger roots to survive through eroding soil. What a completely new perspective. I have always liked the comparison of families and relationships to living organisms like trees. Like trees, families and…

Productivity and Therapy

Saturday, 06 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
Therapy can be helpful for personal growth and healing, but have you ever thought about therapy and its implications with productivity and business success? I hadn’t until recently. When operating a business, you would hire an auditor or contractor to make sure your business was following regulations. Doesn’t it make sense that you would hire someone to bring interpersonal perspective to make sure everything is running smoothly in respects to personal and business communications? Therapy can help resolve disputes and misunderstandings in many aspects of life. It is time to…

No-Fry Fried Rice

Saturday, 06 February 2016 00:00  by Christina M.
Food, among other things, can bring back memories. One of my favorite treats is Asian takeout; I grew up with family friends from the Philippines and China and learned to use chopsticks very young. Because of this, anything Asian reminds me of my mother. If ever I am homesick, a happy remedy is a bowl full of fried rice and a call home. Below is a healthy alternative to take-out (note: no frying required). Ingredients 2 cups cooked brown rice 3 tablespoons peanut oil 4 green onions with tops, chopped…

My home is a space that I can go to process the happenings of the day, and recharge my battery for the day to come.

Escaping Professional Isolation

Friday, 05 February 2016 00:00  by Yolanda F.
As a solopreneur or freelance writer or freelance anything, sometimes the stress of working alone at home can feel like imprisonment. You’re your own boss, yet the mile-long to-do list doesn’t often allow for socializing during the day. While it poses no tangible problem for some, it can do a number on the mental health of others. Think about it. In an office setting you can saunter over to the coffee station or sit on someone else’s desk for a life-affirming chat when mania or any kind of stress interrupts…

Research indicates that most successful individuals, CEOs, politicians, etc., get up early. Willpower is shown to be the strongest in the morning before exhaustion and other priorities get in the way. Adopt a morning ritual and you will start to see results. Hold off hitting that snooze button and read up on some tips to guarantee a more productive future! Get Up An Hour Early “There’s not enough time in the day!” We’ve probably all heard this before. Well, guess what? There can be an extra hour in your day…

Death by Alcohol

Wednesday, 03 February 2016 00:00  by Yolanda F.
Statistics that show alcohol-related deaths are the highest they’ve been in 35 years. The question is why? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 30,000 Americans died from alcohol-related incidents in 2014, more than from overdoses of prescription painkillers and heroin combined (28,647). Alcohol-related causes of death included cirrhosis (liver damage primarily caused by alcoholism), alcohol poisoning, drunk driving and other homicides committed while under the influence of alcohol. The Medical Daily published the statistic that 9.6 deaths from alcohol-related incidents per 100,000 people, which has risen…

Telling Your Story

Tuesday, 02 February 2016 00:00  by Yolanda F.
Three years ago, a restaurateur named Leo Cervantes paid me to write his life story. We became good friends, traveled to Mexico twice, and I learned more during that time than I ever expected. Three years later, Chilangos in the House is about to be unleashed on the world during a time when immigration is an especially hot topic. I took the job because I love true stories. We all want to identify ourselves in others to avoid isolation. We want to learn how other people solved the same problems…

Slowing Down a Racing Mind

Saturday, 30 January 2016 00:00  by Yolanda F.
I was about 16 when I created a crisis for myself in a mall department store that would haunt me for months. My best friend and I were looking at make-up and nail polish. For some reason, I decided I wanted to take home a new bottle without paying for it. Other people I knew had gotten away with shoplifting and joked about it as if it was no big deal. It’s not that I didn’t know the difference between right and wrong. I just didn’t care at that moment.…
Who doesn’t love lasagna? I can’t think of anyone. I also don’t know too many people who can afford to eat the typical crazy caloric version of the kind of lasagna Grandma used to make. I consider it a major cheating dish, not only for the pasta and cheese; the entire recipe makes for a great plate of anxiety. But as with everything, there are alternatives and this recipe removes the crisis potential for grief or remorse. In fact, it’s packed with nutrients. Just prepare and enjoy. And leave the…
