Failure to Launch? How to Get Started with Healthy Living

29 October 2015

I know so many of you out there see all these health fanatics post all these pictures about how amazing their healthy lives are (myself included).

How to Find That Balance in Your Daily Life

09 October 2015

Our modern day obsession with wanting more and more doesn’t leave much room for balance. The more we achieve, the more we want, and consequently, the more we have to work. It’s a toxic cycle, one that can impact our heath drastically, if not managed correctly. I too get caught up in this “wanting more” mentality, and i have seen how my wellbeing suffers, as a result. I know how important it is for me to know when enough is enough, and to take some time to relax and rejuvenate my body and mind.
