The best natural sleep aid

This week I’m so excited to let you in on a sweet little secret, my favorite emergency natural sleep aid. Sunday night was one of those nights when I went to bed completely exhausted, yet couldn’t fall asleep. Normally I’m a stickler for my nighttime ritual, which helps me come down from the day inContinue reading “The best natural sleep aid”

Invest in yourself! It’s always a good idea.

Have you ever really wanted to do something that feels exactly like what you need, yet you talk yourself out of it because you don’t have the time or the money?   We’ve all been there, and to some extent this can happen in small degrees on a daily basis. Of course it’s important toContinue reading “Invest in yourself! It’s always a good idea.”

My Summer of Self-Love

When you make a decision to do something, it helps to tell someone, or many people, as this will likely hold you more accountable than if you simply declare it to yourself. So here I am, declaring to you that this is my Summer of Self-Love!   For the next 90-days, I am very deliberatelyContinue reading “My Summer of Self-Love”

Are you limiting your bliss?

I recently finished reading The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks, and have already personally recommended it to at least 10 people. It’s one of those books that everyone needs to read. Let me tell you why. On my recent vacation to the gorgeous Caribbean island St. Maarten, I found myself in my favorite place inContinue reading “Are you limiting your bliss?”

The very fun practice of tuning into pleasure

Did you miss me last week? Today marks my 70th Wellness Wednesday, and last week was the only week in that stream of 70 that I have not posted an article and sent out a newsletter.   So what happened?? I went on vacation!

Detox your space

I am moving next week and as of today have packed a grand total of one box! It’s a little bit of denial coupled nicely with a heavy dose of procrastination. Yet, I am excited for this process! Why?   Because I love to purge! I’ve moved a lot throughout my life, as a kidContinue reading “Detox your space”

If you don’t listen to your body, it will demand to be heard

I’m a hypocrite. That’s right, I preach from the mountaintops the importance of self-care and that a hugely important part of it is making time to receive bodywork. Yet how often do I receive massages? Rarely my friend, very rarely.   It’s not because I don’t believe what I’m saying. It’s simply that I fallContinue reading “If you don’t listen to your body, it will demand to be heard”

Curried Squash and Apple Soup

This soup was inspired by a delicious dish my Aunt Joan made of roasted curried squash. I adored it, so recreated it, then decided to make it into a soup. It’s fabulous for chilly fall nights, when you’re looking for something to warm your belly and soul, and it’s super easy! I’m not one forContinue reading “Curried Squash and Apple Soup”

Great Expectations: Why you don’t love your life and how to fix it

With my most recent group of meditation students, we got down and dirty about life and the thoughts that govern our perception of reality. Evidently, the main source of distress amongst this group of exceptional humans was unmet expectations and comparisons with other people’s lives.   Naturally, having unmet expectations will lead to unhappiness, fromContinue reading “Great Expectations: Why you don’t love your life and how to fix it”

The most important thing I do for my well-being

It is no secret that I am passionate about wellness. I firmly believe that if everyone were more focused on their own personal self-care, the world would be filled with joyful, energetic, and enthusiastically generous beings.   I have many self-care practices in my life, some daily, some weekly, some monthly, and some yearly, includingContinue reading “The most important thing I do for my well-being”
