New school year excitement never fades, even long after graduation

Oasis tutors channel their good memories into helping kids today

This time of year I can’t help but start thinking about going back to school, and how much I looked forward to that when I was a kid. Oasis tutors have many reasons for both choosing to tutor, AND where they want to tutor. Perhaps they want to complete the circle, and come back to their neighborhood school.

“Only those who have mastered the art of happiness can prosper and progress. The happy spirit sees no obstacles, is not blinded by gloom, and invokes the strength and ambition that surmounts all difficulties and gains success.”
If you are not a natural positive thinker, how do you begin to develop the ability?

Why getting a good night's sleep is good for your brain

Wellness with Cindy

Will a good night’s sleep make you smarter? During waking hours the brain is absorbing new information. In order to add the freshly acquired information to the long-term memory banks in the brain, the body needs to sleep.

Super Simple Pizza Soup

Wellness with Cindy

Vegetables have never ranked in my top ten favorite foods. Snacking on a sliced green pepper with ranch dip is as close as I had ever been to my daily servings of veggies. Family health issues changed all that. The change started with learning how to improve our diet. So began the process of discovering how to create a delicious meal filled with vegetables ... like Super Simple Pizza Soup!

The case for lifelong learning

... as if there needs to be one

Lifelong learning has been a regular part of my vocabulary for a long time. In reality, it starts from the time we enter the world, evolving as we grow. From learning how to feed ourselves, to how to read, to how to drive ... well, you get the picture. What are you doing to learn now?

How do you decide to support a non-profit?

OASIS volunteer Tamara Rhomberg discusses what matters

Mail just isn’t what it used to be. Remember the days when people actually sent letters to each other? Now the mailbox is filled with junk mail and bills. Just in the past week, I’ve received dozens of letters from nonprofits. Each is worthy of support and I want to contribute and often do what I can. But how do you decide which organizations to commit to?
