Environmental Wellness

posted on
Did you know that your overall well-being is closely tied to the health of your environment? The environment can have a huge impact on the way we feel overall. I think we take much of this for granted and simply may say “oh, it’s a nice day today.” It’s important to have an awareness of the Earth’s natural resources and their limits. It’s important to realize the effects of your daily habits on the world around you to live an accountable life. What practices ...

A Homebody’s Joys of Traveling

posted on
I recently heard an interesting presentation about traveling by travel writer and blogger Tom Swick based on his book, “The Joys of Travel”.   Many AAHAM members travel for business as well as pleasure and a lot of Swick’s points seem applicable. Many people think about travel for its visual association of seeing new places.   Yet for me, living in northern Virginia offers this as well. Within less than an hour’s drive, I can go to the Virginia wine c...

  With AAHAM’s 2016 Annual National Institute’s (ANI) soon approaching in Las Vegas; I hear people sometimes say they love going to conferences and especially the ANI, but they seem to always be in a bind at work both before and after a conference. Going on a vacation or attending a conference seems to be a double edged sword because of the mounds of work you have to do both before you leave and when you return.

Signs of fall

posted on
  It seems that children are returning to school earlier and earlier. Seeing the yellow school buses in the neighborhood and the extra traffic, reminds me that fall is just around the corner. Our summer weather will (gratefully) soon be replaced with cool, crisp days and earlier sunset. The leaves will be turning glorious shades of red, orange and yellow and Halloween decorations will quickly fill the shelves replacing the back-to-school displays. Crisp apples and homemade cider will be at...

  This time of year is often referred to as the “dog days of summer” and for good reason. It seems that no matter where you live in the country, these summer days are so hot even dogs don’t want to go outside. Many people have used this expression and think it literally is about dogs, but the phrase actually has nothing to do with dogs or even summer. Instead, it refers to the Dog Star Sirius and its position in the heavens.   To the Greeks and Romans, the &ldq...

Tips for Successful First Impressions  First impressions are so important. Not only are we making them about others; it’s vice versa as people make first impressions about us too. In a new book, “Presence”, Amy Cuddy, a Harvard Business school professor, says people answer two questions when they first meet you. Can I trust this person? Can I respect this person? Ideally, you want to be perceived as having what psychologists refer to as warmth and competence dimen...
