Alicia Kirschenheiter's Publications

  • Green From The Inside Out

    • Les Nouvelles American edition
    • March 2011

    Developing your own personal wellness can mean a new perspective on practices we have had for years.

  • Be Well

    • Les Nouvelles
    • December 2010

    Take the time to take care of yourself even if you are a health and wellness professional.

  • The Brave New Year

    • January 1, 2011

    The story goes that the New Year is a time for reflection - a chance to review and refocus the good, the bad and the ugly of your life. Truth be told, New Year’s has never been my favorite holiday. Perhaps it’s inspiring to use the symbolism of January 1st as a kick-start to necessary and desired changes, but a half-hearted promise made at midnight is like to yield half-hearted results. That’s not Zen, that’s just cold hard truth. About 75% of people who make resolutions fail to keep them. So this year, instead of putting all the focus on what didn’t work, why not take some time to celebrate the positive. Obviously, I’m not suggesting that there’s no room for improvement, I am just offering an alternative to this auspicious time of year. Let’s embrace the things we did right in the past year, and create a long-term plan to get even focused on our true passions.
