Average Joe/Jane

Waste not, want not. That was always the mantra I heard when I was growing up. For the most part, I’ve lived by it … except when it’s come to my gym memberships. Whether two-year contracts or month-to-month, I was getting charged each month on my credit card for a…
I recently learned about the fantastic opportunity to become a “member” of Massage Envy Spa after seeing an ad in Nature’s Pathways and I thought it was a great idea! Just like joining a gym, you can join Massage Envy Spa and enjoy special discounts on massages, couples massages and…
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new ways to exercise and get in shape. You always hear that you should “change things up” and confuse your muscles. I realize there is much truth to that; however, I personally just want to mix it up a…
For the first time since I was a child, I couldn’t wait for winter and cold weather. When it finally became cold, I could walk outside and instantly find relief from hot flashes. You could often find me on my deck at two or three in the morning seeking relief.…
A friend told me that she had been doing some soul searching about her career and what direction she wanted to take. While she felt she was going in the right direction, she wanted some reassurance. “Mary” met with Kathy Clegg, a life coach who does scientific hand analysis. My…
Yoga has always been one of those things I really enjoy doing once I get into it but I have somehow never managed to stay in the routine until I found Pura Vida Yoga in Appleton. I live in the Appleton area and decided to try Pura Vida Yoga’s studio…
It has been a month since my last visit with Michaela Torcaso at whitedoor, llc (formerly known as TIBIA IntuAction Institute) and my first intuitive session. I can’t put a finger on it, but friends have been telling me, “You seem different, you are more confident, you seem at ease,…
I have been a bit bored with my workouts for some time now, so I needed to find something to “spice things up” a bit. My search for this new option lead me to Aerial Dance Pole Exercise in Appleton. After meeting with Paula Brusky, the owner and lead instructor,…
A trusted colleague of mine said, “You should try it, it was amazing!” “It” was an intuitive session with Michaela Torcaso, owner of whitedoor, llc (formerly known as TIBIA IntuAction Institute). I had no idea what to expect, so I went with an open mind. The moment I walked into…
Over a year ago, I decided to take over my health care. I had been seeing doctors who had not been able to help me. After many tests were done over the course of 10 years, and two surgeries later, I decided I needed to get to the bottom of…
For a few years, I have experienced some occasional, but severe, anxiety. After a family member of mine came very close to losing her life, the anxiety reared its ugly head again. But I believe that some things happen for a reason, and I was lucky enough during that dark…
On a beautiful fall day with color at peak, I made a trip to one of my favorite getaways. New Glarus is an historic town rich in Swiss heritage located 30 miles southwest of Madison. As I walked around, I ventured into Art & Soul Tattoo and Gallery, which is…
As each year passes, I seem to notice more fine lines or wrinkles. If you had talked to me five years ago, the topic wouldn’t have even come up. Now, though, it’s a different story! I decided about two years ago that I was getting older looking. A sad fact,…
Summer 2012 was one for the record books: hot, humid and dry. It took everything we could do to stay cool, and that included wearing our loosest clothing. Finally we had a break in the heat and it was cool enough at night to put on a pair of jeans.…
