Have A Listen to HeartMatters on Point A to B Transitions Blog Talk Radio

HeartMatters on Point A to Point B Transition blog talk radio: I had a very pleasant chat with Catherine Morgan on her blog talk radio show, Point A to Point B Transitions. We discussed the real-life joys and challenges I have experienced during my 2-year transition from a long time hospital-based Registered Nurse employee to that of an entrepreneur. In addition, Catherine asked relevant questions about the HeartMatters program, affording me the opportunity to share my passionate belief that all of us desire to feel well, and that  radiant health becomes a reality when we commit to pleasant and subtle small-step behavior changes.

10/26/10 Nevada Joint Union High School District

I am honored to be part of the amazing efforts of the High School District in Nevada County to support the health and well-being of their teachers and staff. In follow up to the annual health appraisal that is offered, I will be providing a workshop entitled, Know Your Numbers, at which we will review the results of the health appraisal and I will share strategies for healthful behaviors that will keep or bring their numbers within normal ranges. How wonderful it is that those that care for, nurture, and teach our children are in turn, cared for and nurtured by the District. Knowing their numbers is the first step towards engaging in daily choices that support optimal health and well-being. I’ll be providing a group workshop and several one-on-one sessions to participants on both High School campuses. Hooray for teachers and staff, Hooray for the District for their forward thinking!

10/22/10 Eat To Your Heart’s Content

In this ongoing seasonal cooking class series, Wendy Van Wagner of In the Kitchen, and I will be partnering up again to offer another informative, fun, and delicious heart-healthy cooking class. This class, which will focus on Fall Foods, has filled up quickly! I am thrilled with the enthusiastic response to what has become a series–we’ll offer these heart-healthy cooking classes four times a year (at least!) to take advantage of the variety of delightful and delicious foods that are available on a seasonal basis. Stay tuned for the winter class to be offered in January, 2011!

10/16/10 Soroptimist of Colfax, Women’s Health Fair

I am looking forward to my upcoming presentation at the Women’s Health Fair sponsored by the Colfax chapter of Soroptimist International. My one-hour workshop will afford the opportunity to share the concepts of optimal health management by discussing the benefits of eating well, eliciting the relaxation response, and engaging in regular physical activity. Most importantly, I will be sharing strategies to motivate the participants to incorporate new, healthful behaviors using pleasant, small-step daily goals to achieve optimal health and well-being.

8/13/10 Eat To Your Heart’s Content!

I am joining forces with Wendy Van Wagner of In The Kitchen for this informative, fun, and delicious heart-healthy cooking class. We are looking forward to seeing you there. Space is limited so register soon at 478-0669!

6/9/10 Springhill Physical Therapy

Sheri asked me to share my perspective of the difference between health management versus disease management. At their upcoming staff meeting, I will discuss my departure from the hospital-based disease management health care model to the HeartMatters model of optimal health and well-being through intention, mindfulness, and healthful behavior strategies. Quieting the mind, eating well, and routine physical activity benefits all of us; even the “patient” mired in conventional disease management can and will move toward their own optimal health when supported in a small-step behavior change program, such as that provided by HeartMatters.

I am looking forward to sharing the exciting science of behavior change and mindfulness with the staff of Springhill PT.

"When my husband of 34 years died I lost my interest in cooking.  Instead I began relying on quick frozen organic entrees and dinners. After three years I decide to improve the quality of my diet, so I contacted Robin Mallery. Robin helped me create a more nourishing and healthful diet that took my busy teaching and consulting schedule into consideration.

It was a joy to work with Robin. She is knowledgeable, supportive, intuitive, and warm.  I highly recommend her as a Heart Healthy Coach.

Through lifestyle counseling, the sharing of her delicious and healthy family recipes, and an informative and fun "field trip" to a local whole food market, I have shifted to an eating plan that is healthy, delicious, and swiftly prepared. The key to swift and healthy meal preparation for me has been Robin's 90-minute Sunday afternoon food prep model, a strategy that assures quick and delicious high quality meals throughout the week. I consider my leisurely Sunday afternoon food preparation time as self-indulgent "me" time, and enjoy chopping, baking, and sauteing against the backdrop of classical music and a glass of wine.  I also love the fact that a nutritious and delicious dinner is ready when I walk through the door every night of my work week.  It's as if I finally have that personal chef I have always coveted, only it's me!"  ---Patricia J., Nevada City
