Real talk about my self care journey

I need to be real with you for a minute, and it involves self care. When I used to think about self care, I imagined all of the woo woo, meditation, sitting - lotus - style while gongs play in the background.....that just wasn't me. That was what I used to think about self care. That was before I knew how to take care of myself.  The truth is, I feel a bit sorry for the girl I used to be.

How to Beat the Seasonal Blues

I don't know if you are anything like me, but I have always been 'affected' by the winter months; namely, the lack of sunlight and Vitamin D, the shorter days and the cold...the gray, well, it just brings me down a bit. At least, that's how it used to be. A few years ago, I really took control of my own health, to the degree that I have any control, and my wellbeing, which includes how I choose to FEEL every day of every season.

Did you know you can redesign your life? Even if you are over 40?

I thought I would take some time to update you on what I have done over the last four and a half years to completely redesign my life in a way I never thought was possible. So much for those limiting beliefs we impose upon ourselves. Here's a tip: don't wait as long as I did to do all of the things you never thought were possible. Here's where I was right before I turned 40: • Working full-time and driving over an hour into a busy city to teach through our University grant program in 3 different city schools....

Finding your Tribe

Finding your Tribe

One of the biggest, most impactful lessons I have learned in my health journey the last few years is this: Who you surround yourself with is one of the factors leading to the person you become. What do I mean by this? It's simple really, but sometimes it takes time to figure it out, and that's okay, because experience is also a valuable teacher.
