It happens every year, the colors change and the temperatures drop. The trees are a magnificent explosion of color. Before the holidays are in full swing lets connect and embrace with the local health-conscious community and set our selves up for success.
With the cooler weather, we tend to stay inside more often. Grab a friend or come as you are to meet new connections and improve your health.
From cooking classes to exercise, meditation and everything in between, choose an event in the area that meets your needs!
Organic Stepping Stones is regularly updating the best health-related events that Michigan has to offer. This November’s list has a variety of options. Which one is calling you?

Once autumn is upon us it’s time to embrace the fall harvest by crunching into a sweet/tart juicy apple. Maybe it is time to bake up some apple crisp or traditional apple pie. Just writing this post has me imagining the scent of apple drifting through the house, now my mouth is watering too.
Recently I had the honor of meeting Maggie Varney, Founder & CEO of Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center and Salon. The team she has created has made a difference in over 4000 children’s lives. WOW, that is huge! All these children were helped by receiving a custom made wig at no cost to the child or family. Adult wigs don’t fit kids and are not styled for children.
It is unfortunate that health insurance companies will not help cover any of the cost for these children to receive a wig (but here is how you can help change that). Most of the children Maggie works with have cancer and other patients that have lost their hair and are battling for their health. By receiving a wig, it is one less obstacle they have to deal with. Hair loss can be devastating for anyone and for a child it is one more social and emotional issue to deal with daily. Continue reading Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan
When is the last time you actually thought about what happiness is? Recently I have given some serious thought to it.
When you really ponder the idea of happiness, it can represent so many things. Ask anyone you encounter and you will be surprised by the variety of different answers you will receive.
Happiness could mean………………..
Food to eat
Being able to walk
A bed to sleep in
A hand to hold
This list just scratches the surface. We have all been raised in different environments, different ways, and in different parts of the world. We are all unique, let’s celebrate that.
Together we are a powerful force. We need to make the time to celebrate ourselves and each other. Imagine the joy, laughter, and happiness we could create and share. Continue reading What is Happiness?
Have you carved out a moment in time to ponder the idea of your vision? Some of you say, “I’m already working on it” while others might be so busy with daily life and might ask, “What are you talking about?”
The last couple of years I have been seriously kicking this idea around. You could call it your vision, dream, goal, mission or anything relevant for you. We all have gifts and talents; the beautiful thing is that we are all uniquely different.
Young Living continually promotes the idea of finding your “why” or dream in life, which I have embraced and want to share with you. After going to Diamond Bound (an event put on by Young Living Entrepreneurs) many of the speakers urged us all to step outside of the box to create our unique vision. They all share how and why they built their dream and the positive impact it has had for so many people. Attending this event inspired me to help me achieve my dream while empowering you.
During the cold season, you probably only pay attention to the person who is visibly sick and keep your distance from them, but certain surfaces at the airport contain substantially larger bacteria colonies than other areas. (You may not be able to see them, but they are there!) It is normal for bacteria to be everywhere, but it’s the bad bacteria that we need to be more aware of and can make you ill.
Studies were conducted by the website Travelmath, the University of Nottingham in England, and the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare to collect samples of surfaces both in the airport and in the airplane.
Most people would think that the toilet would be the biggest offender, but surprisingly it is not. When using the restroom, most people are careful with what they touch and follow up with washing their hands with warm soapy water. Where else are these bad bacteria hiding?
