Welcome to the Wellbeing blog on Pilates &.


Learn how the Wellbeing blog is organized and how the information can help you live well. 


Designing your Life 


The Wellbeing blog is organized according to the compass from the book, Designing your Life. If you haven’t read the book yet, it’s a good one to read no matter what stage of life you’re in now. The book was written by Stanford University professors and provides a framework for life called the compass. The compass will help you think about what to do next if you’re making a transition and live a more balanced life.


Feel more balanced and live well


Unlike other life planning methods, the Designing your Life compass has four quadrants that are easy to remember: Play, Health, Work and Life. The method uses a design thinking process which is an iterative approach to enhancing each area of your life. Insights and tips from the Wellbeing blog will help you make enhancements to each quadrant of your compass so that you feel more balanced and live well.


Get trustworthy healthcare information 


As a CPA, healthcare executive and consultant, I have a strong understanding of how healthcare systems work as well as relationships throughout the industry. Physicians and complimentary care providers including chiropractors and acupuncturists contribute their expertise to health related posts. As the science evolves, they also help refresh older content or co-author an updated article to keep the information current. Other experts contribute insights to help you live a full and vibrant life.
