Written By: Sarah Kolman RN, MA, CHPN, INHC

A few months ago, I shared some of the lessons on wellness and whole health that I learned from my time as a hospice nurse, renewed through the experience of my cousin Jim’s passing.

Written By: Sarah Kolman RN, MA, CHPN, INHC

With summer here, we’re bombarded with messages about getting into great physical shape for the season of shorts and swimsuits. While it’s generally a positive thing to want to be fit and healthy, in my work with my clients I find that focusing on rebooting body image can be even more valuable than embarking on an elusive journey to the ideal body.

Zoom Out! And Hone in on Better Health

Written by: Sarah Kolman RN, MA, CHPN, INHC

Once we find out that certain foods are causing problems with our health, it can be so easy to get tunnel vision on our diets. The concept that everything we put in our bodies can either heal us or hurt us is quite powerful, and it’s not uncommon for me to see my health coaching clients zero in on it.
