12 Dec
Dear Readers,
Tis the season for giving…THANKS!
I am giving thanks this season and today for this wonderful and important friend that thought enough of me to forward this along! 
So without further delay….I need to say…
Without all the meaningful women in my life, my life would have no meaning!
…So heres to ALL the women who have extended my life! For dancing with me in the rain and I am giving full appreciation and thanks for all their patiences to teach me a few new dance steps while the rain was pouring down!
Female Relationships 
They Teach It at Stanford
In an evening class at Stanford the last lecture was on the mind-body connection – the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious.
Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences.
Physically this quality “girlfriend time” helps us to create more serotonin – a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being. Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. They rarely sit down with a buddy and talk about how they feel about certain things or how their personal lives are going. Jobs? Yes. Sports? Yes. Cars? Yes. Fishing, hunting, golf? Yes. But their feelings? Rarely.
Women do it all of the time. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very good for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.
There’s a tendency to think that when we are “exercising” we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged, not true.
In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking!
So every time you hang out to schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health! We are indeed very, very lucky. Sooooo, let’s toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently it’s very good for our health.
Thanks to all the girls in my life who have helped me stay healthy, happy, and feeling very loved.
Life isn’t about surviving the storm; but how you dance in the rain. 
Forward this to all your girlfriends over and over again, and stay in touch!
Happy Holidays!
Asklotta and staff is MINDING YOUR BUSINESS today in the sunshine because of my sister, daughters and all my female friends I call sisters!
Again, it has been my pleasure to tell you what to do and what NOT to do!
Kindest regards,
President and CEO
