I have learned a lot over these last few weeks and I feel like I have something to share with anyone who wants to be healthy and fit but can’t find the motivation to stick with it. It’s been mostly a positive experience, minus the -40 weather that kept me indoors and not taking my beloved walks, so I feel like this is now a lifestyle, not just a resolution. Find Your Own Routine                                 

Why do we learn algebra and history in school, things most of us never use again, when we spend most of our life in romantic relationships and never learn how to navigate them happily and healthy? Our biggest example of what a relationship should look like comes from our parents, and if they weren’t a good example, we’re pretty much left on our own. You could read magazines and discuss with your friends but lot’s of times that advice is given by people who are just as confused as you

As I told you a couple weeks ago, I’m going to school to become a holistic nutritionist. As soon as I picked up this shirt I knew I had to use this quote in my future practice. I just feel that it perfectly sums up my beliefs on health. I used to say “everything in moderation, including moderation,” meaning you shouldn’t gorge yourself on cookies and cake but that occasional treat or late night out isn’t going to hurt you. Green Juice Now, Champagne Later is a less serious way of saying the same

Being grateful is something everyone is talking about. If you’ve read anything about creating a better life than I’m sure you’ve read all about why it’s good for you. The benefits are huge: less stress, better sleep, less anxiety, a better attitude and improved relationships. When things are going good it’s easy to be grateful. How can you not be thankful when you’re sitting around a table with your beautiful family or laying on a tropical beach somewhere? While it’s important to remain thankful for all the great things we have in

As a yoga teacher I see all kinds of people, especially in my all levels class. In this class I get people who have never tried yoga before, people who do yoga everyday, young people, older people, men, women, boys, girls, and everyone inbetween. This post is for the people who have never tried yoga before. Maybe you’ve seen it all over Pinterest or heard from someone at your work that they tried it and loved it. Whatever the reason is that you’re thinking of going to class, there’s a

One of my favorite things to drink is a smoothie. They’re so easy to mix up to fill me in the morning or give me an energy boost in the afternoon. When I first started making smoothies I would search the internet for recipes and they would have some crazy ingredient in them that I would have to go buy. I was also never sure what items would taste good together so I just didn’t make them that often. Lately I’ve been stocking up on the basics for smoothies and

It’s no secret that I’m a health nerd. I also really love reading, it’s one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday morning. I always have a book or two on the go, usually one to teach me something and another fun book to read before bed (50 shades anyone?). Here are my favorite books that inspire health & happiness. Hopefully you find them inspirational too! Crazy, Sexy, Diet by Kris Carr I recommend this book to everyone! Kris is living with cancer and she’s not only surviving, she’s made her life even

I wear a lot of jewellery but I don’t have a huge collection. I have a few favourites that I wear everyday. They’re items that my mom either made for me or gave to me, and a couple things I picked up travelling. It takes a lot for me to introduce new items into my collection but when I saw Kalula Jewellery I knew I had to have some of their pieces! Kalula Jewellery is designed with colour psychology in mind.
