Many people love to travel... I sure do! Whether it's a weekend away, a road trip to visit family, an overseas vacation, or international business, it's common for us to be away from home sometimes! Travel isn't all fun and games though... it definitely comes with some unique health challenges. Some common challenges many people encounter while traveling include: Irregular sleep Troubled digestion Increased stress Immune support Reducing toxin exposure One amazing way to help
Your body is where you live. It is the thing through which you experience this life and it's constantly conspiring to keep you here on this planet. Your lungs breathe, your heart beats, your neurons are firing, your digestive tract is working... all with no conscious effort on your part! Personally I think that's pretty damn rad!! Yet so many people struggle with a negative body image. With hating the body they live in. With the self loathing that can come along with it all.
When my gorgeous friend Katie asked me to write a guest blog for her page on how to use crystals to up the vibe after a visit to my home, it's needless to say I was honoured. My second thought that came to mind was “where do I even start”... I have been utilizing the energies of crystals for many years now, both in my home and on my person. Anyone who has immersed themselves in the world of crystals already will know it can very easily become a hobby for life! Each type of c
Labels are funny things. If you call yourself one thing then stray slightly outside the boundaries of what's deemed acceptable, suddenly you're not allowed to call yourself that thing anymore. I have been vegan & plant-based since mid-2017. But am I truly vegan? I say yes. But I eat honey and own leather boots and a down-filled vest from before I changed my eating habits. I also occasionally eat a tiny bit of egg, fish sauce, or cheese. So, many people would argue that I
It's no secret that I LOVE chia pudding!! And why not? This simple breakfast has become a staple in my house as there are about a million ways to jazz it up! All of the recipes here are plant-based and easily made vegan (just sub the honey). Plus they're all easy, delicious, and really healthy for you. But what are chia seeds? If you hear chia and immediately start singing that little jingle from the 80's (cue: "ch-ch-ch-chia!!") then you're on the right track! They do h
So you've heard of Health Coaches. And Life Coaches. Nutrition Coaches. Wellness Coaches. There are many titles that may be used by professionals in the coaching industry, but do you know what they all mean and what a coach can do? How will having a coach make the difference to you? Coaching has been around for a long time, but what is it? Most of us are familiar with coaching when it comes to sports. Think of a soccer or football coach. They are an individual with a s
You've probably heard about grounding (AKA earthing) practices. But do you know what grounding is? And do you understand the theory behind why it's good for you and how it works? Well never fear, because here we're going to break through some of the confusion and get clear on: -What grounding is. -Why it's good for you and deserves a spot in your self care routine -How to incorporate it into your busy life! What is Grounding? Put simply, grounding is the practice of connecti
Let's start by asking, WHAT is self care? If you speak with me often or read my posts, you'll know that I'm a wee bit obsessed with self care! Unfortunately lately this has become a bit of a buzz word or buzz phrase and there is a lot of confusion around what exactly it means... So let's get clear! Self Care is any activity that makes you feel nourished and taken care of. But this is such a broad definition! So won't this encompass a ton of things? YES it does... and that'
As was mentioned last week, in my humble opinion diets suck... And hey that's all well and good, but what does it mean? What now? What steps do we take moving forward if diets are out of the question? I'm glad you asked! My answer to that is listen to your gut. Both figuratively and literally. Your body is constantly telling you what it likes and what it doesn't. This can come in many forms, and as each body is different there's always different things to look out for, b
Oh dieting... You've probably been on a diet or two (or ten) in your life. If not, then you likely know quite a few people who have. Whether it looks like a diet or not, anything that restricts your food intake, invokes guilt, has "good" and "bad" foods, and dictates what you should or shouldn't eat is in fact a diet. By jumping on the diet bandwagon, you're supporting a multi-billion dollar industry. Remember it is in their best interest if you have great short term succ
