Salvere Blog: The Little Things

April 25, 2017
by Salvere Health And Fitness

We talk about the little things when it comes to various areas of life like relationships, education, friendships and careers. Then life happens, we get busy, focused on our careers, responsibilities, family and the busy-ness of things.

Sometimes its easy to do little things and see the impact. Other times it’s hard to recognize them as a significant accumulation of things and actions. Sometimes the little things seem insignificant. Getting wrapped up in life, we forget to look back and see how they added up and contributed to something bigger.

Think about this, a simple email, text or letter telling someone hello and that they matter, adding one fruit serving to your day, walking for 10 minutes each day, sending someone flowers or a plant, making a coffee date with a a friend, drinking one extra glass of water … how do they feel when you them for yourself or when someone else does them for you??

Our challenge to you, do something little for yourself or someone else each day this week!  See how it feels…..

How well do you know….

March 21, 2011

Yourself??  After spending more hours in the Columbia Mall last weekend then I did total all of last year, I observed something very interesting.  As a Howard County native, I find this area absolutely amazing and full of opportunity to do a variety of activities.  Thinking about how much the area (including the types of stores in the mall) changed over the last thirty years, I had an epiphany….

While vending at the Fabulous Mom’s Expo with an awesome colleague, Dr. Julie Walsh, we discussed in length why we have this desire to be healthier but we, as not just a local society but as a country, hesitate to invest in our health.  Howard County claims the title of one of the wealthiest counties in the country… So my epiphany involved where do we invest our money and how well do we actually know ourselves (and what YOU value?).

Does that overly expensive Coach purse or hundreds of dollars spent each month on facials/plastic surgery/hair coloring/make up from Sephora really create internal happiness?  Do we really believe that sweet potato as an ingredient in a pie to be healthy?  Where are we spending our money and time?  Howard County again provides many great resources … is it at a cost more then just in dollars?  With such a high cost of living, it seems as though we are, as the country song says “Rushing rushing til life’s no fun.  All we really gotta do is live and die, but I’m in a hurry and don’t know why!”   Are we doing the things that truly provide a good solid base for our long term mental and physical health?  Who are we really… as individuals, as a city, as a county, as a society?

I welcome your comments!
