The Power of Gratitude

Important and insightful thoughts on Gratitude. How do you express gratitude for what you have in this life?

Journey To Present

Gratitude. The studies on positive psychology tell us that making a list of the things we are grateful for each day can have an incredibly positive impact on our lives. Think about all the things we take for granted: The person who lets us in on the highway when we’ve clearly waited too long to get in the proper lane, the person who holds the door for us, the person in the checkout line who sees you have only one thing to buy and they have a cart-full so they let you go first… Sure, we say, “Thank you,” because that’s polite and we’re not horrible people, but how quickly we forget.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
