Why We Should Get Moving…

Although I don’t love the physical aspect of exercising as much as I wish I did, I do love how my body and mind feel afterwards. I mainly do yoga for my mental sanity, and the physical aspect is an added bonus. Here and there I’ll go to gym, on runs, or even quick 20…

Start Your Day by Setting Your Intention

“The beginning of your day is a fantastic place to plant the seed”- Kathryn Budig

Waking up each morning in a good mood doesn’t come naturally to everyone, including me. Some of us want to keep sleeping, even if we have a long day ahead and already slept more than 8 hours (that’s me!) or wake up in a groggy mood because we didn’t get enough rest (that’s usually everyone else I know). There are some days when I can wake up and kickass, but there are also a lot of days where I wish I had a personal valet to get me out of my bed vortex.

Going With the Flow & Embracing the Uncertainty

It’s been a little over a month of no longer being a student and the most valuable lesson I’ve learned so far is to embrace the uncertainty of my “journey”(“Don’t stop believing”). I came┬áto the realization that we as humans, no matter where we are in life, don’t really ever know what the french is…

Sunday Series| The Chakras: Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra also known as the Ajna chakra is located in between the eyebrows. It is where our intuition lives and where the ability to observe comes from. From this point, we observe our actions and those of others around us. It is what allows us to “see the bigger picture,” therefore form…

Sunday Series| The Chakras: The Throat Chakra

I like to think of this chakra as the point where trust and communication meet. Many times we don’t speak our truth. We either say things we do not mean, or things we believe are what others want to hear. This used to happen to me all the time while growing up. I had a…

Love Lessons

I remember the first time I had my heart broken. I was 16 and my ex-boyfriend broke up with me out of the blue? (Jerk! just kidding I’m over it) This short 2-month relationship left me pretty bruised. I had never experienced rejection before, and cried for two weeks straight feeling ugly and worthless. I…
