7 Self-Care Practices To Ramp Up During the Holidays

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...

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...

The 7 Tools I Leaned On When I Quit Alcohol

I am asked weekly if not daily by all the beautiful women in my life, whether I know them well or whether they are an online acquaintance, why I quit drinking alcohol and what it’s done for me in my life by doing so. I think about how I want to answer this question a lot, but honestly it’s hard to convey every single thing behind my choice. I’ve talked about it before in a previous blog post and have shared my top 5 learnings on my one-year mark of living sober. But my reasoning for quitting alcohol seems to be ever evolving. At this point I’ve summed it up to this:...

The 5 Greatest Lessons A Year Of Sobriety Has Taught Me

  As I sit to write this post, it’s been exactly 365 days since I decided to embark on a lifestyle of sobriety. It’s quite an opportunity to reflect. I’ve told my story before and shared what initially led me to make the choice to stop drinking alcohol entirely. But as I continue to reflect on the last year, I see now that my choice to quit drinking involves so much more than just that one summer day, when my husband and I were out on the lake on our boat with our daughters and our friends, and I fell down the stairs of our boat, completely wasted, in front of my...

A Personal Story + Lesson In Self-Belief

A Personal Story + Lesson In Self-Belief

  Self-belief: confidence in your own abilities or judgment. Do you ever feel like you struggle with self-belief? I do a lot of personal growth and development work. I read books daily and listen to podcasts to help grow myself and my knowledge and confidence in topics like healthy lifestyle, cooking, business and spirituality. I have found that when I continue to learn more as I go, it positively correlates to my belief in my self. But recently, my self-belief was shaken and I almost didn’t go through with something that I really, really wanted to begin. Let me back up. I...

5 Life Lessons I’ve Learned From Yoga

    You’ve probably heard of yoga by now. But I find that a lot of people even today aren’t really sure exactly what it is. Maybe you’ve seen people practicing yoga on television or in photos. But you might still be wondering, “Is it exercise? Is it meditation? What exactly are they doing in those strange looking poses?!” According to artofliving.org: Yoga poses are great to strengthen and relax the body, but there’s a lot more to Yoga than that. Derived from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means “to unite or integrate”,...
