But sometimes, the moments or days that I spent pondering my experiences, my relationships, my successes and what I want to be when I grow up, sometimes, these moments get a little dark.

This month, I needed to give my body a break. I was finding that not only was I struggling with some digestive distress that needed healing, but that I was really addicted to certain foods and I wanted a clean break.

When it comes to considering your vitamins, supplements, and powders, I want you to rethink what you've been using and consider upleveling what you are putting into your precious body.

I’ve been taking supplements for years. I have always insisted on a multivitamin, omegas, and probiotics for my clients and everyone I know. I fully believe that our soil, our food production, and our ability to assimilate and absorb nutrients in our country has been compromised, and diet and exercise is just not enough any more.Read More
Overeating, consuming excess sugar, alcohol, and missing out on a regular workout or sleep schedule can have major impact on your immune system and inflammation levels (and can lead to weight gain). Now is the perfect time of year to be prioritizing your self-care and making sure that when you can choose healthy, nourishing foods and habits, you do.Read More

Here are a few of my top ideas for creating more mindfulness in your own spoken or unspoken words.Read More
If you're a breakfast person, you're going to love this. If you're not, you're going to love this. You can adjust the ingredients to make it heavier or lighter to your preferences...Read More
I’ve found that focusing on 3-4 relaxed meals eaten mindfully and in a calm setting is extremely beneficial for improving overall health and improving weight loss efforts. And even more so, is focusing on our lunch as the biggest meal of the day and having a lighter evening meal. This is really important.

Think for a moment of what type of movement you would consider fun as opposed to torturous. Perhaps you loathe the idea of a gym, but miss taking dance classes. Maybe you secretly want to try yoga or rollerblading.

Just like what our little ones experience, once we think we have something figured out, it changes.
