“How Important is Breathing to You?”

Ah… pause a moment and think about that. As you are thinking, you have permission to keep on breathing because breathing as you know is very vital to your existence, Right?
A short health note: You inhale air to bring oxygen to your cells and exhale to remove the carbon dioxide gas (toxins) from your cells. Inhaling and exhaling for you may be easy and for others it may not.
Here’s a pointer to strengthen yours lungs and respiratory health:

#1 Exercise – Any cardio or aerobic movements helps your lungs become stronger and more efficient such as: swimming, running/jogging, walking, cycling, treadmill, elliptical walkers; taking stairs and even dancing.

More to come…

“BE”: the Best, Authentic and “Power-full” YOU, today, this weekend and every day. Un-wrap and open the gift of life this Fun Friday!… BREATHE.

2014: Networking’s Finest Year in Review

Kudos to the stats helper monkeys for preparing this 2014 annual report. The success experienced this year would not have been possible without you, our supporters (special guests, followers, guest hosts and listening audience). Many thanks for a great 2014… Looking forward to an even more exciting & greater 2015!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 730 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.

Embrace It: Life’s a Journey of Changes & Transitions…

As I sit here writing this entry (a new format), I can’t help but reflect on the fact that for the past few months, I’ve been in a state of change and transition since my family and I relocated (PCS’d) to Italy, so it’s only natural that my blog reflects it. Initially, I was determined to keep up with the tradition in which this blog was created by being LIVE on air every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at 7pmEST. However, with a considerable time difference plus some unforeseen circumstances, my best intentions and plans were not realized. You see no matter how much we plan for the future and attempt to hold onto stability, inevitably we come face to face with fact that we have to expect the unexpected because it can happen. We all have a tendency to want to stick to what’s familiar, holding onto it for dear life sometimes at all cost, even when the situation demands otherwise or there are sure signs prompting and screaming at us to take another course of action. So as demonstrated by this entry, I’ve decided to fully embrace and embark on a new course for this blog just as I did in my personal life and hope those who have journeyed with me thus far, will as well. With that in mind, stay tuned for new formats and content including but not limited to, new LIVE interviews, audio blogposts, guest hosts, written blogposts, picture blogposts and more from Networking @ Its Finest with Sandra Sawyer, Esq. In the meantime, enjoy these pics… the beauty of Italia🇮🇹



What will you do when you’re faced with change and transition?
