Recently, I was having dinner with my good friend Lora Krulak, and she told me about a book that she was reading called Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard.

It took only a few moments for her to describe it before I said to her “Ok, I’m sold. I am definitely getting it.”

Given that I love to read and am always looking for ways to improve, I bought it the next day and immediately dove in.

Just 60 pages into it, I sent Lora a text saying “This book is AMAZING!!!! I notice huge changes already!”

It was true. I felt a massive shift right away and noticed that life had become very different – much better, easier and lighter.

WHY THIS BOOK IS SO POWERFUL

Everyone wants to make change in their personal and professional lives but actually making the change is the hard part. So, why is it so difficult? Read more »

In terms of organic food, there is a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

While every single participant in the organic food industry plays a critical role, I’d like to single out these three groups this year and express my sincere gratitude.

Organic Farmers Is there anyone more important to the industry than organic farmers?

These are the individuals who work brutally long hours, face the high costs and burdensome paperwork for USDA organic certification, and deal with unpredictable weather conditions, all to bring us the most nutritious food available. Read more »

A few months ago, I went to a fantastic David Wolfe lecture here in New York City at Organic Avenue.

Aside from the wealth of food and herbal medicine-related information that he shared with us, I was particularly struck by something else that he touched on.

David Wolfe spoke about living with intention and always checking back in with your intentions. This was the most compelling part of the entire lecture and has had a huge impact on me to this very day.

This whole concept of intentions was not new by any means but hearing it again was a very powerful reminder.

Despite the fact that organic food is and will continue to be the focus of my blog, there are other essential elements to living well that I strongly believe need to be discussed.

One of these elements, and maybe the most important one, has to do with our thoughts.

You can eat a 100% organic diet but if your thoughts are polluted or negative, how healthy can you really be? I would say not healthy at all. Read more »

My Morning Meditation and Visualization

My Morning Meditation and Visualization

I learned how to meditate in college when I took a Transcendental Meditation class and have maintained a very serious practice over the past 11 years. For some reason, I don’t remember doing it that consistently in the 90s. Most likely, it was the hard-partying lifestyle that got in the way. Anyhow, my meditation practice […]

I learned how to meditate in college when I took a Transcendental Meditation class and have maintained a very serious practice over the past 11 years.

For some reason, I don’t remember doing it that consistently in the 90s. Most likely, it was the hard-partying lifestyle that got in the way.

Anyhow, my meditation practice is something that I cannot live without. It calms me down, centers me and gets me more focused. Nothing makes me more relaxed or present.

So, when I get up in the morning I sit and meditate for 20 minutes. The meditation is Transcendental Meditation, which uses a mantra as a way to keep the mind from wandering.

And after I finish meditating, I do something called Creating My Day. Read more »
