Why I Decided Not to Shop in 2018

Why I Decided Not to Shop in 2018 1024 684 Thayer Fox

I would NEVER have conceived of not shopping for a year had I not read “The Year of No Shopping” by Ann Patchett that ran in the New York Times on December 15, 2017. I posted the article on my Facebook page and asked my social network if anyone wanted to join me in taking…

Move a Muscle, Change a Thought

Move a Muscle, Change a Thought 1024 543 Thayer Fox

Do you think walking is useless? Not a calorie burning exercise and a slow way to get around? I didn’t learn about the benefits of walking until my first year of sobriety. The first year of my sobriety was like restoring electricity to a house that had regularly been hit by hurricanes for sixteen years.…

How to Build a Healthy Ego

How to Build a Healthy Ego 1024 779 Thayer Fox

Ego is a dirty word these days. “Get out of your ego”; “Your ego is the enemy.” I used to believe that when I had evolved enough, my ego would dissolve. Over the past five years, my thoughts on this have changed. There is no such thing as getting rid of ego. It sounds like…

Find Your WHY

Find Your WHY 678 1024 Thayer Fox

Two weeks ago I read Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why” not expecting that it would put me on a path to find my Why. Shortly after, I listened to The Tony Robbins Podcast “Simon Sinek on the 10 rules for achieving greatness.” Here it is: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-tony-robbins-podcast/id1098413063?mt=2&i=1000396710849 Then I visited Simon’s website that has a section…

Back Pain Secret 663 1024 Thayer Fox

I have been fortunate to avoid serious injury over the past 44 years. I do experience chronic back pain from tightness in the surrounding muscles. Once it activates, it can take weeks to go away. If you have other aches and pains from exercising, traveling long hours or sleeping too often in one position, then…

The We Space: The Energy Between Us All

The We Space: The Energy Between Us All 1024 683 Thayer Fox

Have you ever stared into a person’s eyes for a few minutes without speaking? Does the thought make you cringe? Do you long for deeper connection in your life? Is there a gap between how you feel about someone and your communication? What if I told you that when we tune into the space between…

How Random Encounters Can Change Our Lives

How Random Encounters Can Change Our Lives 1024 696 Thayer Fox

Sometimes random encounters can change our life forever. This was the case when I met Jeff Carreira for lunch at a vegan restaurant in 2012. The next time you meet someone through unusual circumstances, stay open and allow the bigger picture to reveal itself in time. I was desperate to feel differently, willing to take…

Why You Should Start Drinking Kombucha Today 768 1024 Thayer Fox

Start drinking kombucha today. It will change your digestion entirely in a few months. If the taste doesn’t appeal to you, suck it up and drink half a bottle to start off. It will grow on you. If your stomach bloats a bit in the beginning: that means it’s working. If you don’t drink alcohol,…

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic? 1024 683 Thayer Fox

Do you believe in magic? Unbeknownst to us, events in our lives are often set into motion long before they take place. Steve Jobs said it best in a commencement speech that he gave at Stanford in 2005: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have…

Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof Coffee 1024 684 Thayer Fox

Morning coffee has always been sacred. My alarm goes off at 6:30 and I have to get the kids out the door on their way to school by 7:30. Waking up before the kids to meditate or journal is not my gig. Even with a self-imposed curfew of 10:30 pm, I don’t fall asleep until…
