The Healing Benefits of Adaptogens

After I was diagnosed with cancer the first time I became viscerally aware of just how precious our health is and I relentlessly committed to doing all I could to be proactive with it.

One of the first things I learned (in lots of research!) was that the food we eat plays a significant role in our cellular makeup and overall health.

After working with both a traditional and holistic doctor, I became fascinated by all the natural ways you can be preventative with your health. That’s where adaptogen herbs came into the picture for me.

Secrets To Doing Work You Love

Over the last few days I’ve been sharing some stories to help you shift your perspective away from the common belief that work has to be about just surviving in life.

Unfortunately there’s a common misconception in society that you can’t have both finances and fulfillment in your work. We’ve been led to believe it’s an either or situation- finances or fulfillment.

But that’s just not the case anymore.

How To Do Work You Love: Part Three

One of the greatest pains in life is that of unlived potential….And the sad truth is, if you never figure out what you really want to do, or are fully capable of… you will probably feel lost, stuck, or unfulfilled your whole life.

Sadly I’ve been a witness to this truth first hand and learned that our work significantly impacts our overall joy, fulfillment, and energy in life….

But it’s really easy to get blinded by the financial security vs fulfillment or potential when it comes to work.

How To Do Work You Love: Part One

While I’d like to believe that work doesn’t dictate our lives, the reality is we spend a large majority of our time at work. We need it to survive. To do all the things we want in life.

We clearly can’t ignore it, so instead we should do what we can to actually enjoy it!

When you enjoy your work, everything can seem to magically fall into place and life feels amazing.

On the contrary when you feel stuck in your work, it can completely drain you in life.

But it doesn’t have to be an either or.

My Absolute Favorite Superfood Smoothie Recipes

True transformation starts from the inside out. Superfood shakes have helped me not only elevate my own life, but transform hundreds of others. I am all about holistic living, being proactive with your life, and  fueling your mind and body from the inside out. After my first cancer diagnosis I became obsessed with learning as much as I could about ways to be preventative with your health. I always knew it was important to be active and make conscientious food choices for good health, but I never know just how influential foods are on our overall health.

Feeling stuck, or are you really just too complacent?

Complacency is something to be very wary of in your life! While I’m all about slowing down so you can fully enjoy and celebrate everything you have worked so hard for, progress and growth are part of our nature.

It’s what motivates us, energizes us, and sparks our passion for life,  

And the key to ongoing progress/grows is consistently doing things that challenge you. When you stop doing things that push you forward in someway,  that’s when you lose your sense of purpose, energy, and excitement in life.

What Keeps You from Reaching Your Goals

There’s so much hope that comes with a new year and a new beginning, but do you know that only about 8% of people will actually follow through on the resolutions and the goals they set for a new year?

Crazy low right!?  

I’m not sharing this to discourage you or bring you down from the new beginning momentum you have, but rather I’m sharing it because I want to help you get ahead of it so you can be one of those 8%.

Five Ways to Prioritize Self Care in 2019

When I say “self care” I’m not just talking about spa days and long, hot soaks in the bathtub. To me, self care is so much more than that. Self care is exercising your mind and listening to your heart. But the truth is that modern day life is busy. It can be  hard to find time for real self care. The kind of self care that guides your life in the direction your heart wants it to go.

How to Beat Anxiety Naturally

Anxiety is something that is on the rise in society. We are so busy and always thinking ahead to what’s next. We are progress driven, and there is a lot of pressure on us to always do more. I hear so many people expressing that they have anxiety, especially younger people, which breaks my heart because they are still trying to figure out what the world is all about. Yet, they are so stressed out and have these uneasy feelings.

One Thing to Guarantee Success in 2019

If you want to set goals that have meaning, you have to gain clarity on what means the most to you. You have to prioritize the things in your life so you can focus on the right ones. Setting goals which are in alignment with your true. authentic self will help you have your best year yet.

How to Find Your Purpose in Life

What is my purpose? What am I meant for?

These are some of the most intimidating and overwhelming questions we can face in our lives. We all go through these times where we really start to dig deep and think, “What am I meant for? Where am I headed in life? What is my greater purpose? What is the meaning of my life.”

Those times can extremely overwhelming, lonely, and paralyzing and they can make you feel so stuck. If you are there right now, I feel for you. I’ve been there many times in my life.
