Health and Wellness Coach, Motivational Speaker, and Founder of Alaine’s Transitional Coaching, Alaine Nolt, joined us once again from Colorado Springs to discuss self-care in a stressful world and expanding our JOY, it’s not just about eating right and exercising.  Alaine suggested that we find moments of joy each and every day to increase our mind and body wellbeing.  Find out about Alaine’s coaching (it doesn’t matter if you are near or far from her) by going to: www.AlaineNolt.com.  You can contact Alaine directly at AlaineNolt@msn.com.


Melba Salazar-Lucio joined us from the Texas/Mexico border to tell us about “Pillows of Love,” a project of compassion that she and her 83-year-old mom started last summer.  In an effort to add some humanity into he immigration debate, Melba and her mom have been sewing together pillows and plush dolls for the migrants and their children. Now, the children have a pillow to put their heads on while laying on the ground, waiting to be allowed across the border to ask for asylum.  Want to help?  You can donate cotton, thread, fabric, or money for supplies and be part of the humanitarian effort.  Contact Melba at:  Melba.Lucio@tsc.edu.
