During these uncertain and potentially stressful times, it is even more important to have a strong foundation for immune health and resilience.

1. Eating at regularly scheduled times: -Large breakfast in early morning -Medium Lunch mid-day -Light Dinner in early evening
2. Exercise during day light instead of evening when your body should be winding down to sleep.
3. Sleeping at night especially between 11pm-3am.

As many of you have heard about the tragic news of the Oakland Ghost Ship Fire that took many precious lives on Friday night of 12-2-16. The fire was about one mile from our clinic here at Cotton Mills Studios. Many people were impacted by this lost including me, the Bay area may be large, but communities overlap and friends of mine have either directly lost a loved one or are 1-2 degrees separated from one or more of the souls that were in the fire. These times have been difficult and dark for many and in grief, so much love and light have also poured out in support of one another. Cherishing the lives that touched so many, and as hard as it may be, to appreciate the mysterious ways that universe conspires to highlight the beauty of life in the most tragic events. I created this video with the wise words of Gandhi in hopes of bringing light to darkness.
