How I maintain my fitness routine during the holiday season

Fitness during the busy-ness of the holiday season can be tricky for four reasons: it's cold outside, it gets dark so early (for many of us), we're prepping for the holidays, and it's just easy to make excuses. This year, I am not letting any of those reasons stop me from keeping up with my health and wellness routine, and I'll tell you why I feel so confident in making that declaration. It is simply because I have committed to one year of building myself up, getting stronger physically, and improving my hormonal, emotional and physical health. So far I have stuck to...

50 things that helped me ease into perimenopause in my early forties

I started this blog, along with this natural soap and skincare business during a particular season in my life, shortly after I turned 40, when I felt I could no longer ignore some of the dreams that have been with me since childhood. My Second Spring was a very real thing, and I needed a change like my life depended on it. It turned out, this business would save me a few years later, teaching me more about myself than I could have imagined, mostly because it allowed me to make some new and necessary changes in my lifestyle, my...

Why I decided to take a Natural Approach to my Hair This Year

We don't often discuss this topic here on the blog, but today's focus is -- hair. I have had naturally wild hair my whole life. Wild. It is thick, unruly, unforgiving and has a mind of its own. It was actually described recently in its curly state by a colleague of mine as --- active. LOL. So, why on earth would I want to go even more natural than that?

A Morning Routine to Make your Day more Efficient

Over the years I have heard about the importance of a structured morning routine in order to start my day off right. The problem was that I could never actually establish one, let alone stick to one. As a full-time working mom of 3 for so many years, my morning routine involved a scramble to get out of bed, get the boys ready for school and to the bus, and then be carried by the current of a mad rush where I ultimately threw on a dress and boots or whatever jumped out of my closet, ran a brush through...

My Diet Changes - Keto joins the Mind & Body Wellness Transformation

I posted in the last blog about how 2017 and 2018 have led me on a wellness journey that has been beyond my wildest expectations. I mean, I have muscles in places I didn't know I could have muscles (LOL) and my willpower, ability to actually quiet my mind and my overall stamina is through the roof. It wasn't always that way, however. In fact, until I made another shift --small steps do indeed lead to great change, take it from someone who now gets it--I was in a bit of a stalemate with my progress. So, it turns out,...
