I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?Read More
I love a good budget. When I was younger I never ever wanted to spend money. I was a hoarder of money. In my opinion, not a bad thing to be. When I went to college and started my own grocery shopping, I tried to keep it around $30-40 per week for 21 meals. Oh yeah, you heard that right.Read More

The modern Western health care system is set up today so you don’t have to do much thinking. It’s also set up so you’re a number that gets moved along. Doctors barely have time for 15 minutes with you. Which is not their fault at all but a result of the commercialized and capitalistic society that governs the system. (I will proceed to stay on my soap box)Read More
I love talking about poops. Why? They’re a huge clue into our overall health including digestion, nutrient absorption, and gut health (aka my favorite topic ever). The color, shape, consistency, and frequency of your poops can tell you a lot.
While you can check out more about exactly what your poop is telling you here, I’m here to talk about how we can be pooping regularly and what this means for our bodies.Read More
You’re chugging right along in life and then BAM! You get smacked with winter. It’s cold, rainy, snowy, and all you want to do it snuggle up in bed.
I’m writing this post for me as much as I am for you. I've been struggling with motivation to keep going because all I want to do is stay wrapped in my warm blanket surrounded by my fluffy pillows in the morning.Read More
One thing we’re not taught in school or class or really by anyone is that we have the power and answers.

I’m an all or nothing kinda person. Sometimes I’ll think about something for hours and other times I’m diving all in in a matter of seconds. My journey to natural deodorant was the latter.Read More
My brain never stops going. I’m constantly thinking of ideas, blogs, my clients, projects, you name it. Cant anyone else relate to this?!

We’re not wired to rest. At least not in the world we live in. We’re wired to GOOOOOO and never stop. We’re told to sleep when we’re dead and millions of people live in “the city that never sleeps”.
But everyone looks pretty tired… It isn’t just because you’re not getting good sleep but it’s because you aren’t resting throughout the day and week. So let’s see where we can fit in more restful rest.Read More
Have you ever forgotten your headphones when heading to the gym or a workout? You might as well pack up and leave because it’s just not going to be the same.
