Find A Happy Map Today.

(Lakewood, Colorado): Albert Einstein noted that logic will get us from point A to point B, but imagination will take us anywhere. In today’s featured TED in the Cloud Daniele Quercia explores finding your Happy Map. What exactly is a Happy Map? It’s the little things we can all do to make big changes in our daily life. For example, here in Jefferson County the difference between Wadsworth and the parks and local coffee shops along Garrison Street could be a Happy Map during your morning commute.     Another Happy Map might be the difference between leaving your home at 6:45, instead of 7:15 and capturing a breathtaking Colorado morning sunrise. Another, might be the simple choice between riding a bike instead of driving your car. In his own […]

Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight.

(Golden, Colorado): There’s a big difference between being alone and being lonely. Tonight begins the official Christmas Week-end in Colorado. Candlelight worship services, romantic dinners for two and family gatherings with all the trimmings. From the Alpine Resorts, to our excellent shopping and dining districts, there’s something for everyone in our Colorado backyard. But for some, the holidays are a trigger point for loneliness. For many, holiday season becomes a mirror of loss. Lost loves. Lost family. Lost time. In a recent study published by The New York Times, Jane Brody highlighted the potentially harmful effects of loneliness and social isolation.  In short, all sorts of medical mayhem, in perfectly healthy people, can be triggered by the effects of loneliness. There’s a covenant […]

Pumpkin Spiced Everything!

(Golden, Colorado): Greetings Colorado, it’s Autumn! For some, it’s our favorite time of year. The weather is just right for those outdoor workouts, blissful mountain escapes, scarves and in case you missed the memo: pumpkin spice everything.

And then, right as we are soaring high with our meal prepping, our career and family plans for the next 5 years, and a 10K training program in full swing…the holidays are here. This time of would-be celebration, can also be the death of many of our health goals. Well hey, maybe not this year! Did you know that with […]
