      Thanks Helene! I am reflecting about how I speak about my story of health as the module in class is about how to coach my clients for positive lifestyle changes. So much begins with attitude and the thoughts that we recycle in our brains. Awareness brings a chance to truly heal.

      Short workouts in the humidity, with lots of hydration. The bugs are a "bonus".
