Marie Well

I’m Marie Well, as in healthy well. At least, that’s my aim—to get well and make you well. We all have woes, from breakups to cancer to hoarder houses. I’m here to fix those woes—with tips mixed with my own tales.

Why read me? I’ve got a track record of fixin’ stuff. I’ve cured myself of anxiety. For a decade, I had anxiety attacks that struck almost daily. When not stricken, I’d write Voice articles, mostly on how to combat stress.

And then my world changed. One week went by with no attacks. A month. A year. Two years. And counting.

Now, I want to skyrocket our health—and bolster our creativity. After all, nothing soothes better than strokes of paint or tones of music or reps in a gym.

So, let’s get fit, creative, and well with Marie Well.

Fit at 100 is the New Normal

When we set a goal, miracles happen at lightning speed.  So, what miracles might we achieve at age 100? According to my interpretation of recent data, 100 is the new 30.  To explain, I saw a YouTube health clip that claimed we can build strong muscles even in our hundreds.  If we eat ultra-healthy, avoid… Read more »

Using Art to Change the World

A loved one is more golden than philosopher Ayn Rand, but profoundly spiritual and communicating through poetry, not story.  He already has many fans and has just started on a social media platform.  His poems break me into deep sobs as tears gush out of my soul.  He wrote a poem about war and suggested… Read more »

Spiritual Friends

I don’t have many friends, but the ones I do have are profoundly spiritual.  They all embody traits I would love to offer everyone, especially our beloved Jewish students, who are undergoing hardships and persecution due to no fault of their own.  No one deserves what this world is putting them through.  Everyone deserves love,… Read more »

Want to Compete with me at the Olympics?

Today, I discovered that 80-year-olds can compete in the Olympics.  So, I want to compete in the Olympics for backstroke and crawl when I’m in my 70s or 80s, although I’ve got to look at the chart to see precisely what age ranges compete.  And I could get bold and talented enough to try out… Read more »

SMART Realistic Goals to Impossible Ones

I believe in setting big, impossible goals, as I’ve learned that what seems impossible—like having extreme anxiety—can be cured, such that we forget what anxiety feels like.  Similarly, we could be sick and unable to work, projecting two years left to live, but turn it around to where we are coached by an Olympian hopeful. … Read more »

Speculations on NDE’s and Hellish Experiences

Near-death experience accounts of visiting the afterlife can be viewed as qualitative, as similar themes occur across cultures and age ranges.  These themes often include pure, unconditional love beyond anything we have experienced in this world.  The themes also involve beautiful colors more stunning than any color on Earth and sometimes beautiful music, where everything… Read more »

Machiavelli’s Sister

“Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.” —Richard Bach (as cited in Pim van Lommel, 2010, p.  1) I want to write a treatise called Machiavelli’s Sister!  It will be the polar opposite of The Prince, by Machiavelli.  My goal is the spiritual ideal,… Read more »

Toxic versus Helathy Choices!

Health can become a fun form of fanaticism and has many benefits.  Toxins, on the other hand, lead to suffering.  Getting hit with a disease where we can no longer work, where we suffer to the point of nausea, where we are isolated for a decade in a black room with no sound, barely able… Read more »

Thoughts on Wealth and Generosity

In a sales course, I learned to balance empathy with focus, or in other words, be a bunny and a shark.  The bunny is the super sweet bearer of customer service, and the shark sinks its teeth into the wallet.  Although the teachings taught me to close the sale and get the highest cut while… Read more »

The Passing at the Children’s Cancer Ward

I had been entertaining my friend’s daughter who had a brain tumor erupt and was labeled as a vegetable by the doctor at the children’s emergency hospital.  But I knew she was lucid but couldn’t express herself due to paralysis.  I knew this because I had taken a Community Rehabilitation class where I learned that… Read more »
