Introducing (d)well

Spring is always an incredibly inspiring time for me. Each year, as the temperature rises, I’m reminded of one of my favorite quotes, which I’ve shared here before:   It’s one of my favorites because it’s so true. When I have spring fever, I know that I want to do…

One of the themes of this blog is self-care, and as such, I want to share a personal milestone and revelation with you. I had hip pain for many, many years and only addressed it when acute issues arose. But when I finished grad school and had some extra time, I resolved…

Happy new year? Yes please.

To start 2016, I thought I’d share some wise words from Amy Poehler. Here’s a tiny excerpt from her book, Yes Please, which I’m reading (and loving) now (emphases my own): It’s called Yes Please because it is the constant struggle often the right answer. Can we figure out what…
