Le Marche designed as healthy culinary getaway on USATODAY thanks to active expats | Baby boomers and beyond |

La Tavola Marche invites guests to step back in time and enjoy La Bella Vita with an emphasis on agrotourism in the secluded countryside with activities like tomato picking.
Authentic Italian cooking classes are offered throughout the year at this intimate 300-year old farmhouse and cozy inn.
Lessons embrace the "slow food" movement with seasonal, local cuisine.

Five Ways To Never Be Stressed Again - Dr. Mark Hyman

Five Ways To Never Be Stressed Again - Dr. Mark Hyman | Baby boomers and beyond |
Everybody feels stress and knows it intimately, but very few of us think about what stress actually is. Stress is a thought. That’s it. No more, no less. If that’s true, then we have complete control over stress, because it’s not something that happens to us but something that happens in us. The dictionary definition …

Heidi Cohen's insight:

We all experience stress. Here is one simple step that helps me. Let go of what no longer serves you. Breathe, connect your feet to the earth and as you exhale, let go, dissolve, release the tension outward. Breathe in and out! Think and do from what brings you joy. Entertain Yourself, pleasing Yourself, connecting with Yourself, being Yourself, enjoying Yourself, loving Yourself. Ignite your heart with love!

Excellent helpful information from Dr Mark Hyman on stress. Please do read the entire article.


Stress is as Dr Hyman says, all in our subconscious minds from our thoughts.. This curator has been for many years following the adage "change your words, change your results" and it works.


You can worry yourself into a real chronic illness. Of course we can be concerned, just not to the state of being helpless.


These steps work time and again.


1. Movement - getting up and standing, exercising, walking, running, jogging, dancing, dancing while cleaning the house with the vacuum cleaner (don't laugh - it works), swimming, hiking, camping, playing with your children, yoga and tai chi.


2. Breathing - Taking deep breaths has a biochemical affect on resetting the stress response. This technique is for women and men. Take a deep breath and let out a pleasurable "HA" sound, not AH. It's a different vibration in the body. Doing this as many times in a day as you need, begins to release oxytocin, the natural hormone in your body, which once released begins to evoke  feelings of bonding and trust reduces anxiety and promotes a sense of calmness and security. It transforms your body from the "flight or flight" response mode to a state of "creation and collaboration".


3. Taking a bath - this relaxes your muscles and is great just before bed. Using Epsom salts which contain magnesium, the relaxation mineral and baking soda plus drops of your favorite essential oil will put you into a state of bliss.


4  Sleep - getting a full night's rest is essential for a healthy body, mind, and spirit.


5. "Change your words, change your results - thinking differently opens up solutions to solve your problems.

The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.
—Wayne Dyer
