    Making Sleep A Priority

    Getting a good nights sleep is a form of self care for me. I have a sweet spot, its 7 hrs. After 7 solid hours of sleep at night I am a wonderful human being ready to kick ass. If I get anything less than 6 hrs, I’m still quite pleasant BUT the fuse is very very short. Now at this point in our lives I’m sure we all know the benefits of getting a solid amount of sleep each night. I’m also pretty sure we are all aware of the health benefits of being rested. The real question is how many of us are actually taking the steps to…

    You are what you eat: Reducing Stress through the Gut

    How many stress eaters do we have out there? What about those of you who get so stressed that you cant even eat? I use to be somewhere in the middle. Not too long ago there was a time when I felt stressed and nothing but a big ole bowl of pasta could fix it. Sadly I also swung to the other extreme where I would stress to the point that I neglected to eat or take proper care of myself. Talk about both ends of the spectrum, am I right? Anxiety is a sign and symptom of stress + stress can present itself in whatever way it wants from…

    10 Affirmations to Say Every Day for a happier well-being

    Affirmations are much more than chants or short statements you repeat to yourself. A simple habit of speaking positivity and prosperity over yourself has the ability to boost your mood and begin to incorporate a healthier and happier overall mindset. I have provided 10 affirmations that you can say at any time during the day, I personally prefer to say my affirmations first thing in the morning to set the tone of my day. I was re-reminded about the power of affirmations a few years back when watching this show “Being MaryJane” ( show has since been cancelled). On this show the main character MJ, creates sticky notes with different…

    Inhale, Exhale: Meditation for Beginners

    Meditation for a long time has gotten a bad wrap. Truth be told there was a time not too long ago that if you asked me if I meditated I would boldly say nope thats not the life that I live. Like most of you reading I had preconceived notions in my head about what meditation was and how I didn’t need that sort of thing in my life (LOL). Spoiler alert, I was wrong on so many levels. Myths that I had built in my mind: Meditation is sitting in a room in silence, there is 0 chance I can ever quiet my thoughts, meditation has no real purpose…

    Yoga + Self Care

    The reasons why I came to yoga are so simple now that I think back to my very 1st day on the mat. I knew deep down there was something missing, didnt have a clue of what exactly but one thing was for sure each and every time I came off that mat I felt closer to whatever “it” was. Social media would have you believe that yoga is about being apart of Cirque Du Soleil or that you have to be this freaky thin contortionist. None of that is true. In its simplest form yoga means to “yoke” or bring “union”, yoga in all its glory is the practice…

    Gratitude

    Coming off a long weekend of intense body + mind/soul work through Yoga teacher training I was inspired to actively show gratitude this week. Dont get me wrong I am one to say a quick thanks to the universe when things work out and of course when I am protected from not so pleasant things or people. My goal was to tune in deeper on the gratitude front and truly “attempt” to appreciate things/people in real time. Surprisingly it was actually harder than I thought it would be. Most humans if thinking about things that they are grateful for or blessed to have ect, we think big ticket items such…

    Self Care

    A day off during the week, no negotiations Currently I work in a virtual office where I have the pleasure of creating my own work schedule how I deem fit from week to week. Which has been one of the best things for my family, especially when I was a single parent. Up and until that dreaded Oct 2018 meeting this meant I really could have my most ideal schedule that really worked around my family allowing for some amazing Work, Life, Balance.  Now with the changes I still have the pleasure of creating my own schedule from week to week, the twist now is the number of hours available…
