Mood Food: Connecting Mental Health & Nutrition

Everything that we put in, or on, our bodies has an impact on our physiological and mental state. Almost everyone feels better when nourishing the body with vegetables and whole foods verses deviating from our typical lifestyle and eating habits. Eating a large, processed, meal and feeling sluggish is "temporary” - but, what if it becomes a cycle that happens daily?

Back to Basics: Managing Back to School Stress

As the weather gets cooler and the air crisper, our memories of summer fall into the distance, our energy depletes, and the balance of our mind and body scale begins to tip. Too much stress, unchecked, can lead to illnesses because of a compromised immune system, or emotional issues such as depression and anxiety. Therefore, how stress is managed is important.

Back to Basics: Easing Back Into a Fitness Routine

Making yourself a priority, especially coming off a fun filled summer will help you set the tone for a great fall and an even better version of you! I always like to think of Labor Day as basically “New Years Eve” an opportunity for a total reset. I hope to see you take that leap and get back into a good routine!!

Packed with Love

There is no planning when a child needs to be removed from a potentially dangerous living situation. Frequently, children arrive in foster placements with nothing but the clothes on their back. If they are “lucky,” they may have a black garbage bag with whatever the case worker who picked them up was able to grab on the way out the door. Here is how two West Newbury women are helping to change that.

The sun is shining and getting your daily dose of vitamin D (with your sunscreen on, of course!) and fresh air does come with a cautionary tale: tick and mosquito awareness. Keeping your body (and those you love) safe and protected is a big part of daily wellness. Here are a few tips to help keep you, your family, and your furry friends protected this spring and summer as you get outside and enjoy the warmer weather.

CK Helps The Company Theatre Celebrate 40 Years of High Quality Theater and Education on the South Shore

In the 1970s, as Broadway directors like Tom Moore were thrilling audiences by putting a convertible on stage in Grease, Zoe Bradford and Jordie Saucerman, two young midwestern women, headed East to realize their own dreams of bringing imaginative live theater to the public. On a $50 budget, they produced their first show, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, in a church basement in Weymouth.

Doing Good Never Tasted So Delicious:
Irene Li and Mei Mei restaurant

It's hard not to get excited (and hungry) when you listen to Irene Li talk about Mei Mei, the restaurant she co-owns with her brother Andrew and her sister, Margaret. I got a real “joy hit” as she explained the siblings’ commitment to using sustainable, locally-sourced food and treating employees fairly. Irene was generous to talk with me some more about how she and her sibs are changing the way Bostonians think about the food we eat and who is making it.

Five years ago, a self-employed contractor and avid surfer in Scituate named Rich Bonanno found a broken bike on the side of the road next to a “FREE” sign. He took it home, fixed it up, and gave it to a neighborhood boy - and, suddenly his happenstance became his mission. Since then, Rich has taken in over 4,000 bikes, some from the dump or free on the side of the road, some donated used or new by people who’ve learned of his generosity and have stepped in to help.
