Is forgiveness good for your health?

Can forgiveness rewire your brain?

"Ultimately, forgiveness is especially challenging because it’s hard to let go of what happened. Forgiving someone who has committed unacceptable behavior can be difficult when we are having trouble letting go of anger or hurt surrounding the event itself."

T. Kari Mitchell (TK), is an Inspired Aging™ Motivational Speaker and Holistic Wellness Coach.  After overcoming her own health challenges through lifestyle interventions, TK knew that she wanted to rededicate her life to elevating women. 

Prior to becoming a holistic health coach, TK was a teacher and school administrator.  She taught all grade levels, and her classroom experience included special education, reading, and English.  Teaching was a tremendously rewarding experience, providing opportunities for personal growth and a chance to impact young lives.  

TK currently supports women over 60 who are transitioning through significant life challenges.  Her online, spiritually focused empowerment program, Sprout Your New Life™, is for women who are ready to let go of limiting beliefs and reclaim their health, confidence, purpose and power so they can flourish in their golden years.  Her program views life holistically and provides tools to improve every aspect of a woman’s life, while nurturing a deeper connection to spirit and the world. 

TK is starting a movement that defies age and limitations.  She feels a sense of responsibility to help raise the standard for aging so the global perspective is positive, not negative. Whole health, passion, empowerment, abundance, and possibility!  That’s the kind of life that’s available to ALL women.  TK believes that boomer women are favorably positioned to make the second half their best years, and her mission is to facilitate the process. 

 TK publishes a blog called Nourishing News and is the author of Sip the Garden: Fun, Easy Drinks for a Healthier Family.  She also offers individual lifestyle coaching. Personal interests and leisure activities include writing; motivational speaking; traveling to exotic destinations; keeping fit; creating gourmet, allergy-friendly recipes; spending time in nature; attending live theater and jazz performances; and taking piano lessons. Her motto is live, learn, love, grow, and be a blessing to others.
