I use to work 7 days a week. When you own your own business or even just really love your job, it can be extremely tempting to want to work all of the time. When I did this is led to extreme burnout and feeling extremely uninspired for a while. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working for myself + at home, it’s to take a full day off.Read More
Have you ever started the week on Monday and wanted to cry because you already feel so behind? Yeah, me too. There are several structures I now put in place to make sure I go into a Monday feeling excited and confident about the week ahead. While it’s important to plan out your schedule and work, don’t forget to plan out your health. This is the method I teach my clients and have them plan out every week as well.Read More
I have to tell you something.
My heart isn’t in just helping you get healthy. Yikes! What the heck am I doing being a health coach?
Well. What is my heart in? My heart is in changing the world.Read More
Whenever I travel I want to feel energized, well, and mentally clear. Unfortunately, due to long trips, airplane air, the food, or a whole host of other reasons it can be easy to feel like crap while you travel or when you get to your destination. Not anymore!Read More

I became hyper aware of my use of single-use plastic (aka you only use it one time) when I started to change my health habits to a toxic free lifestyle. I’ve always cared about the environment but within the last 8 months I’ve attempted to not only step up my commitment to care for myself but for the environment at large.
In case you’re wondering if it matters, let’s look at some shocking facts and I hope we’ll all soon realize it is really important.Read More
We’re constantly told to reduce our phone usage, cut down the amount of apps we use, and clean up our home screens. While I am a big proponent of all of these things, technology doesn’t have to be an enemy to our health.
In fact, using the right apps, we can actually enhance our health. Here are my top 3 apps to improve your health.Read More
When I first thought about the idea of reducing toxins and going chemical-free, I was very very overwhelmed. Honestly I can still be overwhelmed somedays at my lack of full control over what I expose my self to. It was really my move to Hanoi, Vietnam and joining doTERRA that pushed me to think long and hard about what I was exposing myself to and how I could make sure it contributed to my health instead of hurting me.
I like to start simple and small.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
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.
There’s always a time and place for outside help, motivation, and support. But too often we look outwards before inwards. Stop looking for someone else to tell you what your body is already desperately trying to say to you.Read More
2018. What a year.
Here’s a short recap of all that happened in my lifeRead More
I suffered with pretty bad anxiety junior and senior year of college. It felt like I was trapped in my mind.
The more I spoke to others, the more I realized I was not alone even though at times it felt like it. There were so many people suffering from the same thing and I was determined to find out how to overcome it.Read More
I don’t believe in self-care. There I said it!
It’s become really popular to share about and encourage self-care days like Self Care Sunday or even taking a whole weekend for self care. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good extra self-care moment. But here’s the problem.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?!
When I realized my teeth hurt from my mouth being tense all day I knew I needed to do something about this. I decided it was time for a really ultra relaxing routine and that would start with my night time bathing routine.Read More
Let’s be honest, our phones are nasty. I throw mine on the gym floor, makeup gets all over it, food I’m sure, and who knows what else. Don’t think yours is any different….
So how can we clean it in a safe, plant based friendly, and non-toxic way? Simple. Lemon.Read More
I have never been a “small” person. It use to really upset me but then I realized too important things. 1. I could shape my body how I wanted at the gym and I fell in love with it. 2. I loved being what has been called “fit thick”.Read More
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.
Think about your favorite song of all time. When that jam comes on, you’re unstoppable. You can do anything, especially when it comes to working out.Read More
