7 Self-Care Practices To Ramp Up During the Holidays

Last week, my two daughters were home for Thanksgiving break. I was incredibly excited to spend a few days with them with no itineraries and no deadlines. But two days into it, I woke up feeling resentful of them being in my space and disrupting my daily routine. Of course, the resentment was immediately replaced by the feeling of guilt, because what kind of mom resents having her children around? The kind of mom who lets her self-care slide for a couple of days, that’s who. I was able to get a 30-minute jog around the neighborhood, and I came back in a much more positive mindset, with...

My #1 Tip For Thanksgiving

  Guess what? Deprivation, even during the holidays, isn’t really a healthy approach. There’s nothing very new there, right? But why do we do more harm than good when we restrict food and deprive ourselves? Because it breeds more of an “all or nothing” mentality, or what I like to call a diet mentality. Remember a time when you went for so long without certain foods or feeling really hungry — like when you were dieting — and you finally decided to break and have a chocolate chip cookie.

Detoxifying Green Soup + Why I Love A Liquid-Only Day

  Since I returned from my health & education retreat at Sanoviv Medical Institute a few weeks ago, I’ve been loving the practice of incorporating a liquid day (or partial liquid day) into my weekly routine. At Sanoviv, they teach holistic health and that food is medicine for our bodies, both for prevention and for healing. Sanoviv practices a liquid day once a week with their patients and guests. It’s designed to give the digestive system a rest, and it consists of a variety of smoothies, green drinks, hot and cold teas, blended soups, bone broths, nut milks, and plenty...

Today Is My 38th Birthday…Here’s What I Know For Sure

Today Is My 38th Birthday…Here’s What I Know For Sure

Today I turn 38 years old. I can honestly say I feel really excited about where I am in this moment and where my life is going. I can’t say I’ve always felt this kind of peace. And the reason for that,  I believe, is because up until about 5 or 6 years ago, I wasn’t always necessarily making my choices based on what I wanted. I often made decisions based on what I thought others expected of me, or would think of me, whether they’d approve, or whether they’d accept me if they knew the real me. And now, at 38 years old, if there’s one thing I know without...
