Homemade Vegetable Broth

Homemade Vegetable BrothHello there!I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I was ecstatic and blessed to spend it with my 3 boys. It was the first time in a couple years that we were all together on Thanksgiving due to their sports schedule. This year the stars aligned, and travel destinations allowed for us all to come together. We traveled to the University of Notre Dame for a hockey tournament for George and his high school team.While it was a great weekend, and I love to travel, I came home exh read more...

Meal Prep 101

 Meal Prep 101 I know I sound like a broken record when I’m constantly advocating to eat a diet with lots of nutrients, as I mention again in today’s post. One of the roadblocks I hear from people is they don’t have time every night to prepare their meals. I get it, eating healthy does require time to prepare the food. I feel the same most nights. From the time the boys get home from school until dinner it’s pretty hectic in my house. I don’t always have a l read more...

I’m SO Angry!

AngerHi There,I’m so angry I could scream!Have you ever felt intense anger, that you could relate?I’ve written about an array of emotions but the one I’ve left out is anger. Maybe it’s because I don’t see myself as an angry person. Maybe, it’s because anger has such a negative stigma attached to it. Or, maybe I just don’t want to admit I’m prone to bouts of anger.Where does anger come from?The root of most anger is fear, pain and frustration, and who readily admits they feel any read more...

Caregivers, the Unsung HeroesDear Friend,November is National Family Caregivers month. I would like to take this moment to express a tremendous amount of gratitude to all those who have found themselves in this role at one time or another due to unfortunate circumstances.Being a caregiver is one of the most loving and self-less acts a person can do. It’s also one of the most heart-wrenching and, at times, exhausting role a person will ever have to endure.I am torn in writing this post. I want read more...

Boost Your Immune System

Boost Your Immune SystemHi There,The outside temps have dropped, and the leaves are falling which means one thing… cold and flu season has officially arrived!Having children seems to increase the odds of getting sick, since school is the perfect breeding ground of nasty viruses and bacterial infections. While you can teach your kiddos to constantly wash their hands (which does help) you can’t prevent them from catching airborne illnesses like the flu.So, what’s a parent to do when the envi read more...

Hello, I’m Pamela Simon

Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away. ~Robert Fulghum

Widowed at forty-two and left to care for three young children (one with special needs) brought me to a level of despair I never thought could happen to me.

Not only did I have to maneuver through my own grief, I also had to help guide my children through theirs.

Then I faced my own health challenges. At the time of my husband’s death I didn’t understand the mind-body connection and the physical toll grief subsequently took on my body.

I’ve spent years researching and implementing health and wellness practices. While I still have some challenging days, I’m mindful to put love, faith and truth at the forefront of my life. In turn, I’m surrounded by peace and happiness.

I realize there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to healing, so through this website I’m committed to providing health and wellness tools to help you find the ones that work best for you.

I follow a holistic approach in that I recognize that each person has physical, mental and spiritual elements that comprise the whole. It’s my belief that in order to truly heal all the components of a person’s life needs attention.

I invite you to join me and take a step toward healing.

Pam Simon
