here’s nothing more influential than someone who walks the walk — no matter where that path leads. Heather Dahl, a certified laser technician and licensed master aesthetician at Strother Dermatology in Kirkland, is her own testimonial. “My natural hair color is almost black, and I used to have to shave twice per day because I had so much thick body hair. And I inherited my grandmother’s beard by the time I was 20. Laser hair removal was a life-changer, for sure.” Changing lives for the better is what makes Dahl’s career fulfilling — she knows firsthand how it feels on the inside when you look your best on the outside. In a word — it’s transformative.

“THE BEST PART OF MY DAY IS SEEING THE CONFIDENCE IN MY PATIENTS, AND HOW HAPPY THEY ARE WITH THEIR RESULTS.”

THIS ISSUE DIGS DEEP INTO ALL THE WAYS YOUR HOME ENVIRONMENT AFFECTS YOUR WELLNESS—AND THERE ARE MANY.

RE FLEC TIONS MAGAZINE VOLUME 35 ISSUE 7 BCreflections.com editor

Bad news first, there are a host of ways your home can disrupt your health. From toxic molds to polluted neighborhood streets, unfortunately there are stressors found in and around everyone’s home. Turn to page 50 and learn how to mitigate some of these risks and optimize your living space. The good news is, when mindfully designed, your home can be a haven for your family and encourage a deep sense of wellness. To get some expert tips, we visited yoga instructor Morgan Zion in her home. She uses her five senses to curate her space and promote a healthy lifestyle that includes plenty of movement, meditation and nourishment. Get her tips on page 56. Because the kitchen is such a huge part of creating a home, we also included a few ways to rethink your approach. Learn to grow and cook with fresh herbs on pages 18 and 34. Or flip to the feature on page 38 and read about the rise of mocktails and other interesting alcohol alternatives. Lastly, if you feel like a refresh would elevate your everyday experience, let member Brittney Heiser explain how collaborating with an interior design can improve the look and feel of your home. Her story is on page 44.

REAL ESTATE: HIGH DEMAND The area’s commercial real estate market saw another year of record-breaking growth in 2019. According to experts, that trend appears likely to continue into 2020. The close of 2019 brought the commercial real estate market into historic territory both on the Eastside and the Puget Sound region as a whole, according to an office research forecast report from Colliers International. Year-end analysis showed never-before-seen absorption totals and ever-decreasing vacancy rates: The region had the highest annual absorption of the century with 5.6 million square feet and the lowest vacancy rate since 2000, dropping to 7 percent to close the year.

EVERGREENHEALTH AWARDED ‘TOP HOSPITAL’ AWARD Kirkland-based EvergreenHealth recently announced that The Leapfrog Group, a nonprofit organization overseeing hospital quality and safety, awarded the health system with the designation of Top General Hospital, recognizing its achievements in reaching the highest standards for both patient safety and quality.

taco time nw foundation awards $25k to benefit those exiting homelessness Taco Time NW Foundation has provided a $25,000 grant to Congregations For The Homeless (CFH) to support the opening of an additional home for men on the Eastside who are exiting homelessness, the foundation announced.

HOME DESIGN DECORATING WITH PLANTS

by Baylor Chapman Houseplants offer a popular way to decorate—they’re fresh, green, neutral and have many health benefits. In this guide, Chapman walks readers through everything they’ll need to know from Plant Care 101, air purification and pest control to design tips and creating centerpieces. Let Chapman convince you there’s no limit to what a houseplant can do for you and your home. SMALL SPACE STYLE: BECAUSE YOU DON’T NEED TO LIVE LARGE TO LIVE BEAUTIFULLY

by Whitney Leigh Morris How do you make living in less than 400 square feet look glamorous? Look no further. Even though you might have a bit more room, it doesn’t mean the lessons in this book aren’t tried-and-true. The best part is these practical applications to small spaces can be put to the test in your office or individual rooms in your home. Say goodbye to clutter, and say hello to Small Space Style.

16 | march 2020 reflections

Your home benefits you each day—and these benefits extend far beyond a comfortable place to sleep and keep your food. Physically, keeping a tidy home creates fewer places for germs, bacteria and allergens to hide and wreak havoc on your immune system. It’s also been proven that decluttering your home creates a sense of self-efficiency and confidence as well as exercises your brain’s ability to make decisions and problem-solve. Strip away all the old economics books from college that are collecting dust and breathe easy with one of these go-to guides for maintaining a happy, healthy and well-designed home.

BEAUTIFULLY ORGANIZED

by Nikki Boyd Assess your home to transform the spaces, declutter and curate your possessions, clean with efficiency, organize so you can find what you want when you need it and beautify to create a welcoming atmosphere. Nikki Boyd explains her five-step process to a clean, organized and beautiful home that’s perfect for anyone looking for a breath of fresh air instead of another set of shelves or boxes to hold more clutter. THE LIFE-CHANGING MANGA OF TIDYING UP By Marie Kondo

This book isn’t for everyone—Marie Kondo has published several guides to tidying up that are easily found on Amazon. However, lesser known is her fun, quirky manga about a young girl (Chiaki) in Tokyo who struggles with a cluttered apartment, a messy love life and a lack of direction. Follow along as she learns how to get her home—and life—in order. This book is a fun and whimsical introduction for beginners looking to understand KonMari, Kondo’s coined method for creating clean spaces.

HOMEBODY: A GUIDE TO CREATING SPACES YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE

by Joanna Gaines We know Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper and swooned over her beautiful farmhouse style with touches of modern architecture. Well, now she can come home with you and guide you through turning your space into a similar experience. Homebody gives readers an in-depth look into how different styles can be implemented into your space and pieces can be curated to create a home that’s uniquely yours—that you’ll never want to leave, of course.

INDOOR HERB GARDEN

I’ve dreamed of having my own mini-herb garden in the windowsill behind the sink and cutting a few rosemary sprigs to add to the potatoes baking in the oven. Doesn’t that sound wonderful and easy? The funny part about attempting windowsill herb gardens is the amount of confusion and stress that can result. Why? Because of the lack of real estate. You want a mini-garden that will grow, thrive and actually produce herbs you’ll use. Here are some herbs to get you started on the right foot.

h e r b s t h at grow i n d o or s MINT

SAGE

CILANTRO

CHIVES

Mint is durable and often grows as a weed, meaning it won’t require much TLC or sun. Simply keep your mint in a pot with indirect sun and watch it flourish. It’s as potent as lemongrass, but its uses vary from being a good addition to yogurts and desserts to acting as the surprising guest in a chicken dish.

Cilantro needs more sun than most—a south- or west-facing window should be good enough, though. It’s extremely easy to grow and can go in almost any Latin or Asian dish; just be sure to plant cilantro in a deep container since it bolts quickly.

18 | march 2020 reflections

Sage is probably the most difficult herb to grow indoors of this bunch—it needs about five hours of sunlight a day, which makes it perfect for a southwest-facing window. A perennial herb, sage takes a lot of time to get established, so planting it already developed is your best call. Not to mention, sage is a perfect rub for meats.

Last but not least, chives require less sunlight and moist soil so they’re perfect for indoor climates. Chives can be grown in partial sun, so an eastor west-facing window, and regularly divided and trimmed to grow more.

W E L L N E S S H O W- T O :

OIL PULLING oil pulling originated in india as a natural folk remedy for bad breath, tooth health and gum disease. with its recent introduction to popular wellness culture in the us, oil pulling is praised more than ever before by fitness influencers and wellness magazines.

Coconut oil is the most commonly used variety for oil pulling due to its taste and availability in most grocery stores. Coconut oil reduces inflammation and fights bacteria, which makes it the natural choice. HEALTH BENEFITS

According to Healthline, there are approximately 700 types of bacteria that can live in your mouth and about 350 types can be found at any given time. Some of these are harmful and can cause bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Studies show oil pulling can kill these bacteria after one to two weeks of regular use. Clearing out these bacteria can help reduce halitosis, also known as bad breath, as well as prevent cavities, maintaining good gum health and preventing plaque formation. Please note: Oil pulling cannot replace traditional oral hygiene regimens.

how to oil pull • Measure one tablespoon of oil; coconut is the most popular, but sesame or olive work as well. • Swish the oil in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes, between your teeth and around your tongue. • Spit out the oil in the trash. Don’t spit the oil into a sink or toilet because it may cause a buildup in your drains over time. • Rinse out your mouth with water before eating or drinking anything.

SWING STRENGTH Level 1 Titlest Performance Institute certified trainer and avid golfer Jerry Flynn shares four exercises to improve your golf game. He says staying mobile through the shoulders and stable through the core are the keys to a good swing, and he designed this circuit specifically with that motion in mind. Try these exercises as a warm-up or in between rounds.

Fewer players means more responsibility for each individual. No one can fade into the background and take a back seat.

COMMUNICATE BETTER

Three-on-three tournaments tend to be faster paced, forcing players to communicate more effectively and in different ways.

Join the Bellevue Club 3V3 March Madness Basketball Tournament on Saturday, March 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Build your team and see how far you can advance in this double elimination tournament. Four participants per team maximum. Two guests allowed per team. Guest charges will be charged to sponsoring member’s account. Please email basketball@bellevueclub.com by March 15 with your full team to register. Cost is $120 per team.

IN THE SPIRIT OF MARCH MADNESS, WE ASKED BELLEVUE CLUB BASKETBALL COACHES FOR THEIR TOURNAMENT PICKS.

COACH LAWRENCE WONG

Top-two picks: Gonzaga, Louisville Why: The Zags have a lot of firepower. They have six players averaging double digits with a seventh player on the verge of the same stat. They’re an elite program with size and a coach that has tremendous experience in the tournament. Louisville is a great team this year. They started the season firing on all cylinders and have kept that consistent throughout the season. They have depth and all their players play their role well. They also had a huge conference win over an elite, experienced and arguably the most storied program in the country—Duke. Sleeper pick: Dayton is a solid team that will be overlooked by many. They’re a team with many weapons. Their shooting is pretty impressive with 53%, and they also took a top-ranked Kansas to OT. I wouldn’t be surprised if they danced deep into the tournament. To train with Lawrence, email recreation@bellevueclub.com. Also, he will lead an elite ball-handling clinic for ages 11 to 17 on April 6.

COACH TOMMY TOMSIC

Top-two picks: Duke, Gonzaga Why: These teams have great guard play and shooting. Gonzaga has a lot of tournament experience on their roster. Duke is loaded with talent, and they have a great point guard in Tre Jones. Sleeper pick: My sleeper pick is Dayton Flyers to go to final four.  Most interesting player: Point Guard Cassius Winston from Michigan State, a four-year starter. Point guard play is big in the tournament. Cassius is a leader and sets the tempo for his team.  Most interesting team: I think Auburn plays the way modern basketball is played in the NBA. They spread the floor and have shooters at all positions. Last season, they set a record for three-point field goals made and went all the way to the title game against Virginia, where they lost in a close game. Tommy will lead a skills and drills clinic on March 20, 4-6 p.m. He also hosts open gym, a positive, free-flowing environment where players can have fun and play without the restrictions of structure. For more information, email recreation@bellevueclub.com. bellevue club march 2020 | 31


COACH ANTONIO CHAVERS

Pick: I’m going with one team and that’s Virginia, mainly because I’m biased. Head Coach Tony Bennett was my coach at WSU, plus they’re defending champions from last year. Why: They have a tough, synchronized defense that’s been successful for a long time. Most admirable player: The player I admire is Lebron James because of the continuous hard work he displays on and off the court.   To train with Antonio, email recreation@bellevueclub.com.

COACH COURTNEY JOHNSON

Picks for final game: I think that Gonzaga and Baylor will make the championship game this year. Why: With all of the madness in college basketball this year, Gonzaga and Baylor are two of the most consistent teams, not only with their records, but with their play as well. You can always count on a Mark Few Gonzaga team to play fundamental basketball on both ends of the court, and I think that will carry them far in the tournament this year.  Most interesting team: I am a huge Michigan State basketball fan for a few reasons. My mom played golf at MSU, so I was raised a Sparty fan. Beyond that, I have so much respect for Tom Izzo and the way he runs his program, cares about his players, and how hard he gets his teams to play. Most interesting player: Cassius Winston has always had my respect as a pure point guard who can do it all, and even more so now after the way he carried himself following the tragic passing of his brother. Go Green! To train with Courtney, email recreation@bellevueclub.com.

COACH MIA FISHER

Top-two picks: Duke, Gonzaga Why: Duke has tons of experience with one of the best coaches to ever coach NCAA basketball, and Gonzaga’s offensive in the half-court and ability to execute is very impressive.  Sleeper pick: San Diego State might be another team that is under the radar but could do some damage in the NCAA tournament.  To train with Mia, email recreation@bellevueclub.com.

SIX SIMPLE STEPS TO AN INDOOR HERB GAR If you’ve never grown anything in your life, fear not. Herbs are easily cultivated with only a small amount of guidance and are a perfect introduction to the art of gardening. Follow six simple steps to your own indoor herb garden, and soon, your home will feel brighter, your grocery bill smaller, and your dishes livelier.

STEP 3: CHOOSE YOUR HERBS Think about herbs you like in your cooking. If sage isn’t one of them, don’t plant it. The best part about having an herb garden is that it’s yours. If you don’t know where to start, try a selection from the Herbs de Provence: basil, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, thyme, sage, oregano and mint. STEP 4: KNOW YOUR PLANTS Whether you buy a starter kit online or pick out seeds from a local greenhouse, you’ll want to do a little research. Mint, for instance, should be planted in a separate container so that its roots don’t overtake your other herbs. Research the qualities that make your herbs unique, and it will pay off in the long run.

STEP 1: FIND A LOCATION Most herbs need around six hours of sunlight to flourish, so pick a spot in your kitchen near a window, preferably close to your stove or sink. This way, they are close while you’re cooking and you won’t have to go out of your way to water them.

kelli terpsma

STEP 2: SELECT YOUR STYLE When you imagine your garden, do you see herbs that dangle from the ceiling or sit in little planters along your wall? Take a look at your kitchen design and functionality and go from there. Don’t be afraid to get creative!

STEP 5: REMEMBER TO LABEL During the early stages of your herb garden, it’s important to identify your plants so you can give them proper care. Use Popsicle sticks or the tags that came with the herbs to track the plants. STEP 6: USE YOUR HERBS Pruning is good for plants, so don’t be afraid to use your herbs once they start to flourish. Use scissors when harvesting to ensure clean cuts and always trim from the top leaves first. As long as you don’t cut away more than one-third of your herbs at one time, they should continue to grow back healthy and full.

For a quick meal that uses fresh herbs and can be enjoyed anytime, try this easy herbed quiche! HERBED QUICHE

ingredients 1 package refrigerated pie pastry 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 baby Bella mushrooms, diced ¼ of one medium white onion, diced 3 slices of thickly cut bacon ¼ cup grated mozzarella cup grated Parmesan cheese 4 large eggs 1 cup 2% milk teaspoon nutmeg ¼ teaspoon kosher salt ¼ teaspoon black pepper 1-2 tablespoons chopped, herbs of choice

directions Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow the pie pastry to warm up for 15 to 20 minutes on the counter. Then, transfer it to a nine-inch pie pan and spread evenly. Trim the excess dough if desired, or use your fingers to crimp it into a pattern. Use a fork to poke several holes in the bottom, and then line the crust with parchment paper. Fill the pan with pie weights or dried beans and bake for ten minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for about 20 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Cook the bacon in a medium-size pan and set aside. Crumble into bite size pieces. Wipe away grease and sauté the mushrooms and onions in the olive oil over medium heat for about five minutes. Add the bacon back into the pan, and then spread the mixture evenly along the bottom of the cooled pie crust. Top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Lastly, in a large bowl, scramble together the eggs, milk, nutmeg, salt, pepper and fresh herbs and pour this mixture into the pie shell until it reaches the top. Note: If you’re unsure of which herbs to use, try a combination of thyme and oregano. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes and serve warm.

RISE OF THE

MO CKTAIL

38 | march 2020 reflections


m in d & b ody

host of innovative breweries and distilleries are asking social drinkers to give up preconceptions of what a non-alcoholic drink can be. Swapping bourbon for mood-boosting adaptogens, they are out to redefine the American drinking culture.

Over the past few years, there has been a movement quietly growing within nightlife and social circles. People are putting down high-gravity beers and replacing them with herb-infused tonics, adaptogenbased elixirs and other distilled nonalcoholic drinks that promise a healthful, yet still interesting, option to the traditional cocktail. Enthusiasts cite multiple reasons to cut back on drinking alcohol or to avoid it completely, leading mocktails to their moment in the spotlight. Recently, outlets such as the New York Times, Outside magazine and Goop reported on the rise of what they dubbed the “sober-curious” movement. Author and podcaster Ruby Warrington coined the term in 2019 with the release of her book under the same name, and it’s catching fire, mostly among the millennial generation. “Being sober-curious means questioning everything about your relationship with alcohol—including the way that we as a society view and consume alcohol. It means becoming curious about what it means to live a sober life—all the benefits and the challenges,” Warrington says in an interview published on Goop. While mocktails aren’t new, evidence of the movement rests in companies expanding into the bar scene that take the concept to a higher level. Mixologists and distilling experts are coming up with ways to still deliver a mood boost without the stressful effects of alcohol on the body. With slogans like “shaken, not slurred,” and “a new kind of nightlife beverage for conscious connection,” they offer beverages meant for socializing with a twist of wellness. Here’s a roundup of the most innovative options around:

kin euphorics

Kin Euphorics is the authority on mocktails that utilize adaptogens and nootropics to improve health and cognitive wellbeing rather than leave you with a hangover or brain fog. Currently, they have three varietals. The High Rhode mix contains rhodiola rosea for cortisol (a stress-related hormone) balance, and GABA, 5-HTP and tyrosine, which are thought to support serotonin production and elevate mood. The Dream Light version is meant to replace your nightcap of choice with a reishi mushroom and passion-flower-based mix. It also features melatonin and other natural sleep-inducing compounds. A third lighter, carbonated and canned option, the Spritz, rounds out their family of functional mocktails. For more information, visit kineuphorics.com.

bellevue club march 2020 | 39


curious elixir

Crafted by “world-class bartenders, herbalists, and food scientists,” Curious Elixirs are brewed to mimic the taste of your favorite cocktails without the alcohol. With four varieties available, and one in development, the line includes nods to the spicy margarita, Italian spritz, cucumber Collins and more. The elixirs are great on their own, but also serve as a solid base for a host of other recipes. The company is dedicated to using as many organic herbs, spices and juices as possible, and all their products are made without adding sugar and remaining gluten, dairy and nut-free. They pride themselves on using the freshest ingredients for maximum taste.

Give Seedlip a try at home with these recipes.

For more information, visit curiouselixirs.com.

seedlip

Seedlip is a distillery that celebrates the founder’s farming heritage and embraces a farm-to-mocktail culture. Taking notes from “nonalcoholic remedies” found in The Art of Distillation, which was written in 1651, the spirits maximize the potency and power of natural sources of flavors— including barks, spices, grasses, herbs and fruit. Seedlip currently has three varieties, Spice 94, Garden 108 and Grove 42, and each blend is a tribute to the company’s reverence for nature and celebrates ingredients often overlooked in the spirits industry—like peas, hay, rosemary or bark. The flavor profiles are made to be enjoyed with straight seltzer or as part of a more complex mocktail recipe. For more information, visit seedlipdrinks.com.

As its name implies, Athletic Brewing was founded specifically with the athlete in mind. Inspired by the feeling many competitors get from enjoying a craft beer after a hard workout or race, they started brewing non-alcoholic beers to bring another option to the finish line. “No matter your motivation, if you want to keep a clear head and drink healthier, we are here for you,” says their website. A long roster of athletes, ambassadors and beer aficionados rep the brews and rave that the best part is they don’t skimp on taste. The budding brewery has four varieties, ranging from a double hop IPA to a golden ale, all crafted in small batches with premium ingredients.

Bellevue Club member Brittney Heiser, owner of Heiser Designs, shares her tips for working with an interior designer. REFLECTIONS MAGAZINE: DO YOU HAVE ADVICE FOR PICKING OUT AN INTERIOR DESIGNER? Brittney Heiser: Make sure you have a good rapport

table—it could be their specific background, their personality
or their eye for design. Research is so important. My biggest piece of advice is to find a well-rounded designer. Ask what their background is. What did they study in school? What training do they have? There are a lot of interior decorators, people who have a good aesthetic or an eye for design, but unlike designers they don’t necessarily have the experience or training in the technical side of design, such as space planning and creating floor plans that maximize the functionality and usability of a space.

best interior designers should present concepts and solutions that take a space to the next level in your eyes. Nothing should ever feel forced.

when choosing materials, such as selecting a master bath floor that is both aesthetically beautiful yet will provide safe footing when getting out of the shower. Marble countertops, for example, can scratch and chip easily, creating a patina look. Some clients like that and choose marble for that reason. It’s easy to want to replicate looks from the Internet, but if you aren’t familiar with materials, you don’t know how they will wear.

RM: WHAT CAN CLIENTS DO TO PREPARE FOR A MEETING WITH AN INTERIOR DESIGNER? BH: Identify your issues with your current space

that you want to fix. Knowing these will help your designer address these up front in the design process. Another is having a budget, that’s the biggest driver. Everyone has a price range; and most have a limit . If you’re not realistic about your budget up front, it’s hard to get the best results.

RM: HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO HAVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE TECHNICAL CONSTRUCTION SIDE? BH: It’s a critical component in the design process to

ensure that a space is efficient, livable and functional. A seemingly small oversight during the design and layout process can make for big issues later on.

idea to go to the store and buy something right off the floor without preplanning. Also, going to a showroom and buying the first thing you see. Just because it fits with the style of the showroom doesn’t mean it will be cohesive with your home. You really need to start with creating a plan, a vision.

RM: ANY ADVICE FOR HOW TO CREATE A VISION? BH: To create a vision, take inspiration

from everywhere, even if it’s simple color combinations found in nature. Find photos online, so as you shop you have a reference of what you like. And remember, you don’t have to stick to one style, whether modern or traditional. Don’t be afraid to mix and match complementing styles and tie back elements to create groupings. I create 3-D renderings for my clients, so that they have a clear vision of the ambiance, scale and flow of the space from the get-go. Watching an outdated room being transformed into a functional and beautiful space is my favorite aspect of being a designer. For more information, visit heiserdesigns.com.

BUILDING WELLNESS Bellevue has more than 100 certified green buildings, including high-rises, schools, hotels and shopping centers dedicated to sustainable architecture. Seattle adds more than 2,000 buildings to that count, and several hundred more exist in the surrounding cities. This widespread initiative to build eco-friendly communities is partially due to the dozens of city-led initiatives to create sustainable infrastructure. All this attention focused on how our buildings affect the environment raises a question: Why aren’t we focused on how buildings affect our own wellness?

A study from 2018 found that “wellness real estate” gained traction and became a $134 billion industry worldwide with a growth rate of 6.4 percent annually. The trend has continued to grow, and today, one of the greatest high-end real estate amenities is longevity. How exactly can our houses and buildings aid in longer life spans and wellness? To start, a study published in the New York Times highlighted the dangers of living life mostly indoors, citing stale, unhealthy air and toxic chemicals as factors in our day-to-day and overall health. The World Health Organization published a study that found 80–90 percent of our health is tied to where and how we live, rather than genetics. In 2014, Texas A&M released a study focusing on the benefits of a wellness community called Mueller in Austin. The study found that the design of the community spaces led to more walking and biking and social interactions between residents. Also, residents of the Mueller site shifted their diet, exercise and general wellness routines in a healthier direction once they moved into the community.

In Seattle, a team of experts are working toward a similar goal. The Seattle Housing Authority partnered with Seattle & King County Public Health and the University of Washington in 2019 to build 60 “Breathe Easy Homes.” These houses were built to decrease risk factors that cause asthma, including the following features: “house ventilation systems with air filtering, fresh air supply and heat recovery to improve air quality, linoleum flooring and recycled vinyl flooring to reduce allergens held in carpets, no off-gas trim and millwork to reduce urea formaldehyde bonding agents, no off-gas or volatile organic compounds cabinet construction, HEPA filter vacuums, walk-off doormats to remove dirt in homes, and construction sequences to include extra dry-out time and weather protection for building materials to reduce mold growth.”

bellevue bellevue club club march march 2020 | 51


It seems simple, but even these small changes in construction made a huge impact on the residents. To study the homes’ effectiveness, scientists at the University of Washington studied the changes in health for low-income adolescents with asthma living in the Breathe Easy Homes versus children living in standard residences. They found that residents experienced four fewer days with asthma symptoms every two weeks than the average youth with asthma. They also noticed that the proportion of Breathe Easy residents with an urgent asthma-related clinical visit in a three-month period decreased from 62 percent to 21 percent and their quality of life improved significantly. The research is vast and continuing to grow, but what about those of us who aren’t looking to pack up and move out anytime soon? Using luxury wellness resorts, apartments and communities as inspiration, wellness real estate leaders are establishing standards that can be applied to many homes. BREATHE EASY

Stale, indoor air increases the amount of allergy-inducing dust mites, pet dander, mold and other toxins circulating through your home. To top it off, many of our household cleaners, air fresheners and candles contribute toxic chemicals to the air, effecting respiratory triggers.

If you don’t have the time or money to follow the Breathe Easy Homes method of a full-house reconstruction, there are a few things you can do today to help you breathe easier tomorrow. Regular cleaning with nontoxic cleaners will reduce dust and dander. Try reducing the amount of carpet or rugs in your home, purchase a vacuum with a HEPA filter so you do not re-pollute as you clean, and crack a window daily for a boost of fresh air. Researchers at Harvard also suggest changing the filters on your air conditioners and heating vents more regularly and investing in ionic air purifiers, especially if you have a household pet that produces allergens daily. If you already own an air purifier, consider a dehumidifier for bathrooms, laundry rooms and basements to reduce mold growth. FOLLOW YOUR RHYTHM

Circadian rhythms play a major role in sleep, cognitive performance and the immune system. Even though sleep is a key player in health and longevity, humans constantly do things to affect their rhythms without even thinking about it. Even minor changes in routine, or looking at a cell phone screen too late at night, can throw off your rhythm. Wellness architects use expansive windows and natural lighting to promote a natural circadian rhythm in residents. Designers wire house lighting technology to ebb and flow with the natural light from outside. bellevue club march 2020 | 53


Several lighting companies have started promoting “Deliberate Lighting Systems,” which are light bulbs, usually controlled by apps, that cater to your circadian rhythm by changing color and intensity as the day rolls on. These systems have been proven to improve productivity, memory, cognitive function, mood and to build healthier immune systems. If you’re interested in a house-light rewire, give the Philips Hue, Saffron Drift or the Lumos Light Therapy Lamp a try. COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Our health is intrinsically tied to our community in two ways: how we interact with the community, and how we interact with the people in our community. Studies show that living among several people and sharing amenities like local pools and golf courses improves quality of life dramatically for residents of all ages and the quality of the amenities are improved when shared by a close-knit community that cares about their neighborhood. While planners and developers are aiming to create housing communities with yoga studios, coffee shops, golf courses and spas within walking distance for optimal wellness, you can focus on getting to know your current neighbors and taking interest in community events happening near where you live.

GREENS BEFORE SCREENS

Wellness research has touted indoor plants for years because of their ability to absorb sound, reduce toxins in the air and calm our brains. While turning on your favorite TV show or music might help relax you after a long commute home, research shows that too much artificial noise and light can interfere with concentration, communication and your child’s wellness. Research on tropical plants has shown that patterns in round and soft leaves release feel-good neurons in our brains when we look at them, while plants with spiky leaves, such as snake plants, don’t have the same benefits.

How to Start a Home Practice A traditional yoga class setting is great for many reasons: community, expert (oftentimes hands-on) guidance and a safe place to get away from it all. However, one of the beautiful things about yoga is that all you really need is your body and breath. Yoga instructor Morgan Zion suggests letting the five senses guide you to create a sacred space for yoga and meditation in your home.

bellevue club march 2020 | 57


Sight The outside perspective of an instructor is a big missing piece in a home practice, so a floor-length mirror can help with selfadjustments and corrections. Don’t spend a lot of time looking at it, but when in doubt, glance over to double-check your posture. Another visual cue is light. Zion suggests practicing next to a sunny window on a nice afternoon or using a happy light to complement a morning session. “Light helps evoke a feeling of being awake and alive,” she says. “It builds a sensation of warmth and positive energy flow.” The last visual that Zion likes to incorporate is green plants. The color of the heart chakra, green is another reminder of thriving life.

Sound Music and yoga often go hand in hand. Set your mood with the perfect playlist, whether you want an upbeat, energetic morning mix or a soft, restorative session after a long day. However, silence can also be a powerful tool. A lack of sound can let you connect to the natural rhythms of your breath and the world around you. “You can change your environment depending on what your goals are,” Zion says. If you prefer music, try the playlist Zion curated for a calming, centering at-home practice.

Smell Your sense of smell is a potent tool. Different smells can induce a sense of comfort, energy or relaxation. Zion loves to enhance her home practice with aromatherapy. Her go-to scents include lavender and lemongrass, but her alltime favorite is doTERRA’s Breathe, which combines peppermint, eucalyptus and tea with lemon and cardamom.

Taste Taste is not a sense that’s usually associated with yoga, but Zion says that’s the beauty of being in your own space. She likes to curl up with a cup of coffee or tea after moving her body. Her favorites are lemon-ginger-turmeric or mint tea. Her favorite morning move is to put on a kettle of water and perform sun salutations while waiting. “It’s a great way to get energized first thing,” she says.

Touch Zion prefers a warm environment, especially when it’s cold outside, so she turns a space heater on before rolling out the mat. Comforting sweaters and blankets can also be incorporated a little more easily when at home. To end her sessions, Zion suggests placing a small silk spa pillow over the eyes.

Simple, Sweet Intentions “be

present, be here now.”

“why

am i not somewhere

e l s e ? i wa n t t o b e h e r e .”

Go-to Breath Work For a simple meditation practice at home, sit crosslegged on the floor, on the edge of a bolster or on a block or your couch. Set a timer for your chosen duration. Zion recommends trying a four-count breath, which is called the box breath. Close your eyes and take a deep breath while counting to four. Hold for four counts, pause, and then exhale for four counts. Repeat, trying to make each part even. “A teacher once told me that if you think you don’t have time for 10 minutes of meditation, you need to make it 20; double it,” she says.

Safety First Keep an open, clean space. Remove any furnishings or art that could get in the way.

“restore,

relax.”

Hard surfaces are best. Use a towel or extra mat if your best option is concrete or another rough surface. Go to many classes before starting a home practice to ensure proper form, alignment and technique.

IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE

Finding a community in the mountains of Colombia I was watching a video in Spanish, a language I barely knew, when I began to cry. I was about to enter Tayrona National Park on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, where teal waters, dense jungle, and golden-sand beaches all converge to create a mindbogglingly beautiful scene. For those reasons, it’s a popular place to go, and thus I was surrounded by people—yet I suddenly felt very alone. I’d just spent four memorable days trekking in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, where a hodgepodge crew of travelers quickly felt like friends I’d known forever.

here was the sweet couple from Switzerland with their affable teenage daughter and her Colombian boyfriend, and the two friends from France with whom I got to dust off some rusty French-language skills acquired in school. There was the accomplished pastry chef from Spain and the Belgian who just happened to go to business school at my alma mater—both my age and with so many interesting travel stories. We were en route to La Ciudad Perdida (which translates to “the Lost City”), an ancient, thriving metropolis that had dropped off the map for hundreds of years before being “rediscovered” in the 1970s. (It remained known all along to those indigenous to the area, who kept its existence quiet.) It’s believed to have been founded around 800 CE, or 650 years before Machu Picchu, making it one of the most significant pre-Columbian archaeological sites around. And it was no small village—as many as 400 families may have lived here, a big number by ancient standards. When Spanish colonization began in the 16th century, the settlement—known as Teyuna by locals— was abandoned. The only way to get there is on foot with an authorized tour company, a journey about 60 people make each day. Teyuna certainly isn’t lost anymore. But it still feels special: adventurous, mysterious, and spiritual. In our group, everyone was relatively fit, and we were able to cover the 30ish total miles at a brisk pace, leaving plenty of time for leisurely swims in the afternoons and conversations by candlelight in the evenings before going to sleep early in a hammock or bunk bed. I looked forward to our midday breaks, when we’d take a moment to pause and eat sweet slices of pineapple or giant, ruby-red hunks of watermelon, juice dribbling down our chins. Belgian Marijn took me under his wing, translating everything our guide explained and making sure I always knew what was going on. Even as the only guest on the tour without full fluency in multiple languages—the majority of the group could toggle flawlessly from English to French to Spanish to Italian— they welcomed me into the fold anyway. On day three, we woke up ready to visit Ciudad Perdida itself. I wondered if it would be more about the journey than the destination, or if whatever was waiting in the clouds would surpass what we’d seen so far.

he entrance to the city was grand and a little intimidating: 1,200 stone steps carved out of the mountainside, headed straight up. It was like a never-ending StairMaster but with better scenery and the promise of a big reward at the end. And it was undoubtedly worth it. Teyuna was made up of round terraces, stone paths, a canal system, and open plazas; its architecture is unique among ancient ruins. We saw the boulder carved with a map that helped them get around and the huts where indigenous families today dwell. The highlight is a series of terraces, each smaller than the last, that ascend to the sky. From the higher ones, the view over the verdant landscape below is spectacular. Marijn worked overtime translating for me. Midway through, he listened in on the information provided by another group’s official translator. “You’re getting a much better experience!” he boasted. I’m sure that I was. We took our time exploring, but afterward, a long day of hiking awaited. On the reverse journey, we passed croaking frogs, a wild pig running across rocks underfoot, vibrantly colored butterflies and beetles, the biggest spider I’ve ever seen, and a pair of wide-eyed gray kittens I was tempted to scoop up and take home with me. Without any cell or WiFi service, the hike was truly unplugged—something I desperately needed. The mountainsides were steep, the river crossings cold, and the accommodations rustic, but it all added to the experience. Even the small annoyances didn’t detract, like the fact that everything I owned was perpetually damp and I, despite frequent showers and river dunkings, was always covered in thin layers of sweat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, and dirt. As the hike ended and we all piled into a red off-road vehicle for a bumpy ride back to where we started, I began to wish the time would stretch. When they dropped me off along the way at Tayrona National Park, I felt like a baby bird trying to flap its wings. I’ve always loved solo travel, but the bonding experience of some tough trekking in the jungle was strong—and now I had no generous personal translators to usher me through. I ended up enjoying Tayrona very much, particularly the screeching monkeys, beautiful beaches, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. I woke up early to go on a hike that was mostly a rock scramble to the indigenous village of Pueblito. I lost the trail along the way and started to despair, but I found my way back and made a new friend, this time from Chile. A few days later in Cartagena, I bumped into Marijn on the street while looking for a place to eat dinner. I felt like I was running into an old friend I’d known for years. Eating pasta while wearing clean clothes was a world away from our time hiking to Ciudad Perdida. But in the thick of the Colombian jungle, time isn’t measured in hours or days but in flaps of a butterfly’s wing, jumps from a cliff into the cool water below, and connections made with fellow travelers.
