May, 2021 Newsletter

By: Michelle Caron, Owner of Harmony Way in

Wilbraham, Massachusetts, USA

Welcome to the May, 2021 Harmony Way Newsletter!


Is it already May?! Oh, my! Something happens to me after daylight savings time begins that makes it seem like time is moving even faster than it usually does! With all of the springtime activity of life (and a large garden to tend, in my case), it is extra important to SLOW DOWN each day at some point to make time to enjoy and appreciate life and its many small, miraculous moments.


Wishing you a beautiful May filled with flowers, love and laughter! I hope you enjoy the activities, recipes, workouts and articles that I have shared with you this month. To all of the mothers/grandmothers, ancestral grandmothers, those who are dog/cat/pet moms, aunties, Godmothers, those who could not conceive or who lost a child, foster and adoptive moms or those who are like a parent to someone or who identify as a mother in some way, you are so deeply loved and appreciated! 💖

This Month's Exercise Demos:


Fast Paced Walking Workout

(From: Reps to the Rhythm)



Outdoor fat Burning Tabata HIIT Workout

(From: Tracy Steen)

Above are two fun, faster-paced workouts. The walking workout is very low impact. The HIIT workout has a more impact, but is also doing more than a simple walking workout. It is a great idea to change up your workout routines with whatever you enjoy, so your body continues to feel challenged.

Always check in with your medical health provider for advice before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, bringing these up with a medical professional prior to trying any workout routine.




This Month's Wellness Articles:


DNA damage “hot spots” discovered within neurons

(From: NIH)



Inflammation, Obesity, Diabetes, Aging and Exercise

(From: IDEAFit)


The above articles contain new evidence-based research information about health issues, as always on this blog. There is SO MUCH we can do to prevent many of the above obstacles in life as we age with diet, exercise and lifestyle choices. I encourage you to continue to educate yourself with evidence-based data and to incorporate practices that work for you and for your own unique needs. I also offer private client sessions for those looking to find support or advice in order to make healthy lifestyle changes or to get holistic health/nutrition or herbal consultations/recommendations.


This Month's Yummy Recipe Links:

Sweet Potato Macaroons

(From: Sweet Potato Soul)

GF, Vegan, Nut-Free

40 Must-Try Vegan Salads

(From: Feasting at Home)

Grain-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan, Gluten-Free

Do you like sweet potatoes? (I LOVE THEM!) Do you like cookies? (I LOVE THOSE AS WELL!) Then, this easy cookie recipe is a great one. The sugars in it can be adjusted to be more whole food oriented or lower glycemic (and remember, ANY sweetener should only be enjoyed in small amounts), as well as for your personal preferences, since sweet potatoes already taste great as a replacement for more sugary snacks without needing much added to them.


If you are trying to incorporate more veggies and/or fruits, especially greens, then above you will find 40 different options to inspire you! Did you know that the World Health Organization now recommends that adults eat 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables to help prevent cancer/inflammatory diseases and to eat enough fiber to keep our digestive tracts healthy? Are you eating enough greens and veggies? Most people are not.


If you try any of the above tasty recipes, I hope you enjoy them!





PS YOU ARE ENOUGH...and actually way more than enough!

(Just the way you are, right now, today and every day...

you are enough.)

💖Michelle
