    You’re blogs really getting me thinking. I would like to hear more about creating wellness and/or mindful exercise.

    • Creating wellness requires loving and valuing that inner being you and I live with every day. This inner space is the source of mindful exercise. I know when I appreciate, and genuinely feel, caring for my own body, I WANT to take care of my body. I own that this body is always with me. Together, my body and mind work hard to press the exercise energy throughout. I feel the stretch and the resistance. Sometimes I think about stopping when it gets too hard and sometimes that is great to do. Other times, we love the stretch of going beyond. Sometimes I experiment by varying pushing and coasting during exercise, just to see where I am inside today. Out of this dance, being fit becomes a joining of forces and much more pleasurable.

    Hi Lois Coon. I am doing some work for John Brady of Top Retirements.com and he suggested that I get in touch with you to discuss your website, etc. I’ve published a few pieces for John and have some more in production. I’m particularly interested in writing about people who’ve developed an interesting “career” post-retirement (paid or not). E- pat@pkcboston.com or call 617-797-2431.

    Take a look at my web site http://www.pkcboston.com which gives lots of detail about my career as a marketing consultant for 30+ years. (I’m not soliciting business from you!)

    Incidentally, my mother’s maiden name was Coon. Her father emigrated from Galway, Ireland to Kansas about 1885. Perhaps we have some distant relationship.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Great to hear from you. I am not sure exactly what you have in mind.

      Curious about the name of Conn. Who knows maybe there is a relational connection. Lois

  6. Hi Lois,

    I just came across your site today, and I love it! I have also created a site for those in a similar age-range to your readers. I’ve just designed and produced a strength training DVD series – would you be interested in receiving a free copy for review for your site?

    Let me know!
