Making Work More Healthy

More Than Just a Body

Was 2016 (Really) “The Worst Year Ever?”

Family & F.I.T.  |  Debbie Hatch   This is not a blog about politics.  It is not about socio/economic affairs.  It is not a debate.  This blog is about resiliency, reality, and mindset.   Let me ask you this:  What does your FB feed look like right now? Mine is (has been for the past …

What Season are You In?

Family & F.I.T.  |  Debbie Hatch   This picture, like the audio file, has not been edited, touched up, or filtered. They’re both just me. The way I look (after a 90 minute hot yoga class, anyway). The things I think about. I’m not crazy about the fact that the banner shows only my eyes, …
