  • Positive thoughts
    to help myself be more positive and all others who wish to be here are four ways in my opinion that help build up instead of tear down 1 Get out of your own head Stop comparing yourself to others There is no one else like you and there never will be We all have a purpose in life and are unique in our own ways No one person is better than another just because they have different qualities You are your own worst enemy 2 Do what makes you happy If you re stuck in a rut doing the same old things change up your routine No one can control your happiness but you Figure out what is making you unhappy whether it s a person or a thing and remove yourself from the situation It may seem conflicting at the time but it will be one of the best decisions you ever make for yourself to be rid of a toxic person or enviroment Life is too short to be stresse d 3 Don t let the turkeys get you down Something my grandmother reminds me of frequently and a saying I have come to live by meaning drowning out the naysayers and not giving others the power to control your happiness and or affect the way you live your life with their negative opinions or thoughts 4 Spread kindness It doesn t cost you anything to be kind to another person so smile at people as you walk by them hold the door open for another offer a helping hand or just pay someone a compliment Whatever you decide to do keep the positivity going through each new person you meet Read more posts by Skye Tulio Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy living journey 2 Heart attack risk 1 Heart Health 1 holiday season 2 holidays 1 impact

  • Communication is Key
    Judy Belk a keynote speaker at ComNet15 an annual conference for communications professionals of non profits and foundations held by The Communications Network I along with fellow PAHWF staff member Rose had the privilege of attending this conference held in San Diego California last week Of the many tools and strategies we learned to bring back to our own organization Judy s words were certainly food for thought and a greater lesson packed inside one simple thought Of course like the title of this post proclaims communication is indeed KEY Without it the desired outcome is tough to accomplish Especially in the workforce where there is constant collaboration and problem solving in order to achieve common goals In my opinion it s a life skill that comes naturally to some but to others is a constant work in progress An emphasized strategy presented at ComNet15 storytelling to spread your message That is showing instead of telling In your words spoken or written painting a picture for the audience you are trying to reach For me Leave the door open a piece of advice my great grandfather lived by comes to mind In other words always keep the channels of communication flowing in all aspects of your life for nothing can take place without it Tags communication ComNet15 Healthy Living living happy Living Healthier problem solving Read more posts by Skye Tulio Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy living journey 2 Heart attack risk 1 Heart Health 1 holiday season 2 holidays 1 impact 2 inner peace 1 KPJR Films 1 leader 1 Life at the beach 1 life lessons 3 living happy 5 Living Healthier 3 motherhood 1 Moving more 1 music 1 New Hampshire 1 New Job 1 New Year s resolution 1 Night owl 3 night time routine 1 obesity 1 obstacles 1 old age 1 overwhelmed 1 pace 1

  • Those darn kids-with love from Mom
    it matters to me I am so busy but this is my chance and I ve always grabbed it to get a taste of what their days are like As any of you parents with grown kids knows it is not always easy going with teenagers and I have three so last night I prepared a special meal and pulled out all the stops China fancy place settings etc and toasted the kids to my celebration of them Candles everywhere After dinner I had written out the lyrics to a love song that reflected my own sentiments for them I read the lyrics to them then played the actual song for them Three of us joined hands in the candlelight together while we listened but one wouldn t bite Sigh So why do we do it Day in and day out Every parent teacher meeting x 3 every back to school night x 3 every sports event times three school concerts coaching teams that normally the dad does etc To me the answer is pretty obvious Because we love them with all our hearts and will not give up They challenge us at times but somewhere in their teenage brains maybe someday the parenting will stick They will always know that their mom loved them fiercely and was always there no matter what It is a long road but one that is passing all too quickly But as my seniors graduate and move on to college and leave the nest as they are supposed to I will look back and know I gave it my all with joy A mother s love just doesn t quit Tags balance motherhood teenagers parenting Read more posts by Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy living journey 2 Heart attack risk 1 Heart Health 1 holiday season 2 holidays 1 impact 2 inner peace 1 KPJR

  • I think I can
    No matter how great the obstacle in your way the belief that you can is key I ve realized this as I recently overcame a major hurdle in my own life that I felt was always holding me back In my journey to overcome this hurdle I failed twice and let it get the best of me allowing it to disocurage me from trying again I gave up because I questioned myself and everything that I could have done wrong but not anymore I realized if I don t believe in myself who will If I don t believe I can do it won t happen no matter how hard I try I worked hard to conquer the obstacle that had been challenging me for so long but it wasn t until I started believing in myself and having confidence in my abilities that I was finally able to achieve it I got out of my own head took a deep breath and tried again I now live by the saying She believed she could so she did And that goes for anyone if you put your mind to it you CAN and WILL do it Just have confidence in yourself and take things one step at a time I think I can I think I can I think I can Tags Believe in yourself confidence courage strength Read more posts by Skye Tulio Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy living journey 2 Heart attack risk 1 Heart Health 1 holiday season 2 holidays 1 impact 2 inner peace 1 KPJR Films 1 leader 1 Life at the beach 1 life lessons 3 living happy 5 Living Healthier 3 motherhood 1 Moving more 1 music 1 New Hampshire 1 New Job 1 New Year s resolution 1 Night owl 3 night time routine 1 obesity 1 obstacles 1 old age 1 overwhelmed

  • Change of season memories
    mountains and woods I had no concept of time other than the sun Our shared class was music history and if you could see the photo of me conducting our group project in top hat tails huge fake mustache and a wide white tie down to my knees you would howl We trekked every weekend for trips of up to five days One was an ascent of Mt Washington the highest peak in the Northeast I have hiked Mount Washington in the summer countless times since I was five and have done solo multi day trips in my childhood summer home of the White Mountains However winter is a very different story as Mt Washington is known for its danger due to sudden changes in weather That day as we approached the summit a blizzard and white out popped up suddenly and it was a little scary when our experienced guides left us in a protected cove while they left to re orient us We huddled together and were much relieved when they came back for us Phew The other moment was after a long day s hike when we ended the day above the timberline so had to build fires to melt snow for water to drink water is frozen at that elevation and set up camp as night fell and I ended up with mild hypothermia Treatment Huddle close with buddies in the same sleeping bag if possible and drink drink drink I didn t notice it because early signs are just mild confusion and fortunately guides noticed I was acting a little off and addressed it immediately I was fine but did you ever smell someone in the same sleeping bag who hasn t showered for 4 days The ammonia could clean your kitchen floor We also did a marathon I did a ten mile run along a tree lined snowy trail Since we did up to five day trips we would miss classes and the guides would marvel at our focus and sleepless dedication to type papers study for exams etc No one s grades suffered Those memories are some of if not the best of my life and I wish I could re live them chopping firewood being outside and yes believe it or not winter is beautiful and yes there is something to be said for cold weather Seasons will and must change but it is not necessary to hate the cold Go with it and find a reason to love it Tags Change Cold weather Seasons Read more posts by Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be

  • Back to school is much more than you think
    the beginning of school each year couldn t be beat even through medical school On the first day of school even though I was only in 1st 2nd or 3rd grade I walked the third mile up the winding hill alone to the converted mansion which was my little school School and education make all the difference for children and have great impact on many aspects of everyone s future Did you know that early education as well as education in general affects Actual brain formation that lasts a lifetime and impacts all higher thinking functions and decision making etc Health outcomes over one s entire lifetime Lifelong economic status that in turn affects health Mental health including depression and risk of suicide Risk for poor behavior choices such as at risk sexual behavior substance abuse tobacco abuse etc Poor judgement Lifespan longevity is strongly associated with educational level Lifelong sense of fulfillment Voting likelihood Likelihood of participating in one s community volunteering and feeling connected even getting out and socializing Trusting others not only personally but trusting institutions such as the government Happiness and life satisfaction Income which also affects health outcomes Employment opportunities Crime rate Poverty rates which affect all of the above In fact the higher the education level attained the lower the risk for any of the above negatives and the higher the chances for all of the above positives to come to fruition So when you pack little Johnny or Jane s healthy lunch in their shiny new lunch box and send them skipping off to their first day of school this year consider this You are not sending them off to their first day of school you are sending them off to the first day of their healthy and much brighter future in every possible way Read more posts by Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy

  • Trust your gut
    and if something deep inside you says something s not right about a person or situation trust it and keep it moving It really reasonated with me because too many times in life we question ourselves in terms of the decisions we make Is this what s best for me Should I have reacted the way I did Should I have walked away from that person or situation in my life that was making me unhappy or causing me stress To me the answer to all of these things is YES if that s what your gut tells you We are born with these instincts in order to help us survive according to Lifehack org and should use them as a guide Now I m not saying your gut is the only thing you should refer to when making important life decisions but it s hard to dismiss an overwhelmingly persistent feeling that you just can t seem to shake If something doesn t sit well with you chances are it s because your instincts have kicked in enough to alert you that it s not for you That feeling you get deep down inside that hunch is in tune with you and therefore your happiness and should not be dismissed or ignored When it comes down to it your well being and happiness are what s most important If it doesn t make you happy or help you to grow it s time to reevaluate in order to keep moving forward Tags gut instinct happiness trust your gut well being Read more posts by Skye Tulio Related Health is not just a six letter word 2 February 2015 Time Alone and Loving It 9 February 2015 Heart Health 16 February 2015 Hospital Usage and High Utilization 27 February 2015 Too blessed to be stressed 16 April 2015 0 Comments Comment Submission Name Email Website Message Subscribe Back to Mission Healthy Living Latest Posts April 25 2016 Breathe in breathe out April 19 2016 ACE Study April 11 2016 Be Kind April 1 2016 Sunny Days Ahead March 21 2016 Easter Week Authors Skye Tulio Tags balance 1 motherhood 1 peace 1 positive influence 1 teenagers 1 2016 1 ACE Study 1 ACES 2 adversity 2 aging 2 balance 3 Believe in yourself 3 better you 4 Blizzard 2016 1 calm 1 change 2 Change 1 Cold weather 2 commit 1 commitment 1 common cold 1 communication 1 ComNet15 1 confidence 1 courage 1 David P Gallagher 1 Easter 1 embrace life 4 families 3 family time 1 Fathers Day 1 fitness 1 Friday 1 friendship 1 getting better 2 getting to sleep 2 Go Green 1 gut instinct 1 happiness 5 healing 2 Healthcare costs 1 Healthy Living 26 Healthy living journey 2 Heart attack risk 1 Heart Health 1 holiday season 2 holidays 1 impact 2 inner peace 1 KPJR Films 1 leader 1 Life at the beach 1 life lessons 3 living happy 5 Living Healthier 3
