Wilbraham, Massachusetts, USA
Welcome to the January, 2023 Harmony Way Newsletter!
Happy New Year! May your 2023 be filled with joy, vibrant health and wonderful new adventures. Remember that each day is an opportunity to do more of what you love and to reach your goals. There doesn't have to be a "New Year's resolution" for progress to happen steadily in our lives. You can choose to make changes anytime you feel ready.
Also, thank you so very much to the Northeast Herbal Association for highlighting me as their featured herbalist in their current winter edition of the NEHA news! It's a great honor that I deeply appreciate to have been able to share my own journey to becoming an herbal teacher among so many other amazing herbalists in my "neck of the woods!" Many thanks for all that our herbalists and other healers of all types do. This non-profit organization provides a presence and a voice for herbalists and for those seeking herbal education and wisdom in the Northeast corner of the United States.
Wishing you a terrific January and a fabulous start to 2023!

This Month's Exercise Demo:
This 10-Minute Choreography-Based Dance Workout Will Level Up Your Moves
(From: PopSugar Fitness)
Dance is a wonderful way to alter our mood and immediately bring us into the present moment. Not only is this a great cardio fitness workout that is quick; but it's also useful if you are looking for some new moves on the dance floor! It can work for all levels of fitness experience, since it also includes modifications in the video. Just 10 minutes of dance can change your outlook, bringing an uplifted mood and boosting your energy throughout the day.
*Always check in with your medical health provider for advice and guidance before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, discussing these with a qualified medical professional prior to trying any workout.

Harmful Content on Eating Disorders, Suicide Can Pop Up in Minutes on New TikTok Account, Study Finds
Social media can be many things to many people: A source of support, current news, a way to keep in touch with others, gross misinformation, body dysmorphic posts, validation for feeling a certain way or prompting us to feel worse, depending upon many factors in the algorithm and in our own lives. Perhaps one of the most vulnerable populations is our youth, particularly pre-teens and teens. There are so many mixed messages popping up in the social media feeds of kids and teens that it can become overwhelming and confusing. The above article explains some of the most dangerous things online to look for and how to help our youth navigate this ever-growing body of information safely.
