We have all, at some point, used this phrase: “I need to start working out.” Whether we have or haven’t been successful with those intentions, rest assured, it won’t be a topic of discussion in this blog. ;) Every human being knows the amazing benefits of an active lifestyle, including weight management, endorphin release (happy hormones), muscle strength, and overall wellness. These are just a few of my favorites; you can add all of yours to
Most trends circle back around, for better or worse. Right now, I see the younger generation wearing things I loved wearing in the 90s. The baggie pants, over-sized shirts, clear plastics shoes—they all bring back the nostalgia of my youth, as well as the questionable fashion choices of the time. I have thought many times, had I saved those outfits would I be wearing them again now? I know… who am I kidding? I'm at
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” – Gandhi The last five years of my life have revealed something to me: the ability to enjoy health, balance, peace, and joy is contained within the treasure of things one does on a day-to-day basis. The little, “normal” things. It is found in how and when you wake up, in what you eat, in interacting with your surroundings, in the traditional and
We all, at some point, have looked back at a picture of our younger selves and conclude that we didn’t appreciate our youthfulness. We see those pictures and remember how, back then, we thought we were a little thicker, our hair wasn’t long enough, or wish for the body we used to have! Why did we ever think our thighs weren’t toned enough? We can look at our skin from back in the day and reminisce
I think one of the hardest things to hear, especially when it regards your health is “there is nothing we can do about it.” Or maybe you’ve had to hear “there is no cure.” The feeling of hopelessness and defeat can be overwhelming. I empathize with any of our Elite family members who have received these words. I genuinely hope and pray you to find comfort and peace and never lose faith throughout your health
With fall already upon us, especially Texas’ version of fall, we get to love the coming changes. The colors of our surroundings are shifting, the wind carries a cooler breeze, and if you enjoy layers as much as I do, fall fashion is here! On the other hand, we know this beautiful picture-perfect season also ushers in a transformation of our skin: make-up needs may be different, and most of us need to switch our body
Estimated reading time: 6 minutes Have you ever read about that persistent, tiny drop of water? You know, the one that made a significant change in the surface of rock over time, eroding a significant path, showing everyone how powerful water can be. I bet you know the story. I have used it so many times to inspire others about the benefit of discipline and consistency, but today that story will take another route. It’s
Estimated reading time: 5 minutes Because we are completely inundated by an abundance of information, quite literally at our fingertips, many of us have become skeptical—about everything. We've started to question who and what we should believe, what we think regarding specific topics, and who (if anyone) has the absolute truth. For now, just RELAX! We're not diving into information literacy in this blog. While reading this, I want you to digest it as if
Estimated reading time: 5 minutes Have you ever heard someone say this: “Be wise with your money?” On one hand, this seems simple enough. On the other, I don't think it means one has to D.I.Y. everything to save every single possible penny! Have you seen some of the botch jobs out there?? While each one of us has unique and impressive talents and skills, I genuinely believe some things are better left to professionals.
In our lobby, you will find beautiful pieces of art created by an amazing local artist, Chelsea Neal. An interesting fact you may not know about Chelsea is that she used to be a receptionist at Elite before deciding to become a full-time artist. We value the precious connection we have with Chelsea, so we felt the need to interview her, too.
