Written by Nicole Czarnomski

Sake (pronounced SAH-kay), is a Japanese beverage made with rice and served at a variety of temperatures. It’s usually sipped while indulging in appetizers or sashimi and sushi at Japanese restaurants. Sake is also enjoyed on special occasions in traditional Japanese rituals, and it pairs well with lighter fare like fish, chicken and vegetarian dishes.

Sleep is one of the three pillars of good health, along with diet and exercise. In a culture that works 24/7, sleeping can seem like a low priority. Yet, around the world, there are researchers, physicians, mental health workers and even dentists who regularly see the effects of poor sleep. The sleep medicine community is hoping we will all place sleep at the top of our priority lists.

Rochester is home to World Sleep Society, an international nonprofit that aims to better sleep health worldwide by connecting sleep researchers and practitioners from around the world to push research forward.

Gift of Life Transplant House, a beacon of hope, was established 35 years ago. It serves as a home away from home for approximately 4,500 patients and their caregivers who stay there while going through the transplant journey.

The house also welcomes patients receiving CAR-T therapy, which is a procedure that helps treat certain types of cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma.

Downsizing: Freeing yourself from "stuff."

Print Email
Written by Cindy Mennenga

When most people think about downsizing, they imagine endless piles of their possessions to sort through and nail-biting decisions about what to do with Grandma’s good china. Because downsizing is often thought to be a daunting task, it’s easy to procrastinate and put it on next year’s to-do list, which will quite possibly slide onto the following year’s list of projects. Making decisions is difficult, and it takes courage to face your discomfort and move forward.

Mother Daughter Bonding Experience

Written by Luann Buechler

Eight years ago, I hosted a one-day conference featuring Janet Bray Attwood, co-author of the bestselling book, “The Passion Test.” My daughter, just 16 years old at the time, was helping me with the event. Being her sweet self, she asked Janet how she could serve her. Janet, in turn, asked my daughter, Ashley Hallett, to sit down so she could practice her process. My daughter got a 45-minute coaching session with Janet Bray Attwood who invited her to become a certified facilitator for Passion Test for Kids & Teens.

You Are Worthy!

Written by jorrie Johnson

In 2018 Rochester lost a couple of exemplary business women. I got to know Dr. Bonita Patton, age 60, psychologist and owner of Associates in Psychiatry and Psychology (with offices in Rochester, Owatonna, Faribault and Wabasha) and Post Town Winery. I met Nicci Sylvester through Mothers & More 13 years ago and I got to know her through her business. She opened Tonic – Local Kitchen and Juice Bar. She passed away days after her 43rd birthday in November. Each of these women did so much for others, and our community has been impacted by their contributions. What can we all learn from these ladies, who loved life and the people around them? Life is too short to worry (too much), be angry or be miserable. Live for your family and friends, do good for others, take care of yourself, listen to your heart and pursue your passions.
