Why Health Tips?

Yes, you're in the right place, this is a quilting blog, but my prior career was as a nurse practitioner in women's health and as a certified nurse midwife. If I can use that knowledge and experience to help quilters be healthier, why not?

When we take good care of ourselves - physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally - we live fuller lives and I certainly want that for you. Our health also affects those around us. As mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, partners, spouses, colleagues, and dear friends, we are better able to love and give when we are healthy. Furthermore, our health habits influence others, so when we live healthier lives, they will too. In essence, taking care of ourselves, makes the world a better place. So yes it may be a little strange that I share health tips on a quilting blog but understanding how to live a healthy life has always been such a part of me that I hope you'll find that sharing health tips and quilting tips all fits together.

Happy Quilting and here's to good taking good care of ourselves!
