Morning power walks have been a longtime part of my lifetfyle though there have been times I haven’t been as diligent and disciplined. Now – if I don’t feel like going out, I tell myself just go – even if you do a 10 minutes it’s better than nothing. My goal is usually 3 miles and I’m always happy when I exceed it with 4 miles, 4.5, 4.1 – I’m like Yess!
Walking is a great way to relieve stress, lower blood pressure, increase your heart health and overall mood. I make it a point to look around at the beautiful trees and flowers, the sky – the things that remind us the beauty of nature and life. There are so many blogs are I see really heavy on promoting who’s wearing what super expensive designer item..and not being judgmental because I love nice things..but as life goes along and getting older you appreciate or should appreciate that many of the best things are free. Taking moments of solitude to clear your mind of cluttering thoughts, social media, news.. is important. If you don’t live in the best neighborhood find a local park.
Whatever you choose to do the point is to keep moving and never take for granted just looking up – whether the sky is gray, full of clouds or blue – it’s another reminder to appreciate life and not get jaded. The autumn season is perfect to really be reminded of the beauty of changing seasons before it gets too cold to be out – take advantage of it. Do something good for your mind, body and spirit daily.
Rest In Peace dearest DJ Lisa Moody – very sad to learn this news -really can’t find the right words.
Such a great lady, with a welcoming smile all the time and DJ always ready to bring joy and make every event special, lifting everyone’s mood through her skills — by the time I’d take the stage (dancing in my dressing room with the tunes bumping “Yess Lisa Yess!” – the atmosphere was perfect. Miss Lisa Moody always understood the assignment setting the tone for my concerts creating a festive musically soulful atmosphere spinning house music classics at some of my East coast shows in recent years NYC & D.C. – bringing so much joy and sense of oneness and community – truly special.
As half of Sugar Girl Squad with the great Ultra Nate’ – I also send my deep condolences to all the family, friends and colleagues in the Deep Sugar and House Music Community.
The good vibes, love and memories will live on, you will be missed. Soar with the angels and house music greats Miss Lisa Moody. To have touched so many people through the music turntables and beyond, for everyone to remember your kindness is a life well lived.
People will forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they will always remember the way you made them feel. – Maya Angelou.
From Lisa on my birthday; I couldn’t let this day/night go by without wishing a Happy Happy Birthday to the #icon, Queen of Cool and everything fierce & fabulous @jodywatley! During these tough times you continue to inspire & encourage us all! Cheers to you! 🥂♥️🤗 ✨ #wattage
Discovering all sorts of gems trying to organize the vast press clippings in my archives. I’m fortunate to have hits in other countries like the U.K. though I rarely get over there going back to my early releases in the 80’s and 90’s on the Official Charts, and later on their Dance and Soul Charts.
