Welcome to Sylvie's Website

I hope to provide you with exciting blogs about health, habits, happiness, people, dog stories, and life in general. 

I‘ve collected many stories over the past 80 years of my life that I’d love to share with you. 

I believe that a life well lived must be filled with passion; for the people we love and the pets we adore, for things we do and the things we create, for learning and growing and elevating ourselves to the next level.

I am blessed to have had many passions in my life. Like a caterpillar, who transforms into a butterfly, I have passionately evolved from a health care practitioner to a writer. I want to share what I’ve learned and observed from the world around

In the past, as soon as she got back to her daily routine, she’d forget about it. She knew she had to start the habit of applying sunscreen because her father and uncle had died of melanoma.

Do you find yourself turning down help from a volunteer, a family member, or a friend? I’m not referring to hiring someone to work in your home or office. I’m talking about being quick to say, “No thank you, I appreciate your offer, but I’m fine,” only to find yourself wishing you had considered the person’s help.  (read more…)

Nail Biting

Do you bite your fingernails? Nail biting is one of many compulsive habits that may be plaguing you. Nail biting, also known as onychophagy, is an oral compulsive habit. You may have your own reasons for biting your nails and you may understand your triggers that cause you to bite your nails or you may have no idea why you do it and you may have been doing it for as long as you can remember. If at all possible, it will help you tremendously to identify why you do it.
