Ya Don’t Wanna Get Smacked in the Face by Yo Mama.

It was definitely a winter morning. I was 14 years old sitting in the passenger seat of my mom’s car, which at that time still had a cassette player in the dashboard. I put a rap tape on and started working my head bob. My Italian mom wasn’t a big rap music fan at the time, or for that matter, any time….ever.

Recognizing the end point can sometimes be difficult because we want to be supportive and provide as much encouragement as possible.

Thoughts & Words. Strength or Weakness.

Behavior Kinesiology is a branch of kinesiology (the study of human movement) that studies how thinking directly impacts our physical body, stress symptoms & the effects on our immune system.  Behavioral kinesiology helps us to determine if we are carrying old limiting beliefs that are continually self-sabotaging.

I’m not gonna do the whole “new year, new you” thing. Not even close.
