Here’s to 39!

That time that I remembered it was my birthday halfway through the day 🤷🏻‍♀️

This week was a busy one with work and kids’ activities- so busy that I almost missed my birthday in the middle of it! For a quick second I wondered if that meant that I just wasn’t excited about my birthday anymore- I’ve heard that happens sometimes?!? BUT, I realized that was so so so far from the truth. I was busy doing a job I love, training clients and leading my wellness team to do great things and watching my kids excel at the activities they love. Truthfully, I was busy living a life I love, that I dreamed of long ago- and actually living in the present all day long 🙏
But, as I like to do each year, I did take some time to reflect this weekend. Things have been a bit tough lately, as our family lost a loved one and we’ve all had so many emotions around it. Life continues to remind us that it is ever changing, unpredictable, sometimes very hard and more often very beautiful.
So this weekend I reflect on where I am and I am so grateful. Though I’m always going to be a student in the field of wellness, I am grateful to have a healthier body at 39 than I did at 20. I am grateful to be strong enough to move this body God has given me and be a model for my kids that we can improve ourselves with each year of life.
As I plan to embark on some new career adventures this year, I’m grateful for each step that has taken me here. None of it has been wasted and everything I’ve learned along the way has helped me at some point further on.
In this next year, I look forward to helping my clients more by advancing my skills as a wellness partner for them. I look forward to meeting more passionate entrepreneurs, wellness advocates and moms. I look forward to unplugging more frequently, doing more spontaneous and adventurous family trips, committing to dating my husband again and laughing and smiling as much as possible. The whole year won’t be easy- if never is- but I look forward to coming out of my 39th year of life stronger, more present, more grateful and more joyful than ever!!
Cheers to the rest of you May birthday friends!! And here’s to another year of growth to us all!! 🥂🥂


Mother’s Day for all the to be moms out there…

This is a different kind of Mother’s Day post, because, although I am so very excited to spend the day with my family tomorrow, I very clearly remember a time when I wondered if a day like that would be in my future.
Mother’s Day can be a hard day for many, and that’s certainly the case for the 1 in 6 women who are currently struggling with infertility (WHO, 2023). And, although I have two beautiful children who are my whole world, Mothers Day used to be really hard for me.
And baby showers.
And my friends’ kids’ first birthday parties.
And every day that I took a negative pregnancy test and then had to wipe away my tears and go to work.
You get the picture. Infertility is hard, and it’s even harder to talk about. But, once I started to share my struggle with friends, I realized how many people I loved were also wiping away tears as they pulled up the yet another baby shower for someone they loved.
I won’t share my exact story with you or what did or didn’t work for me. Because all of our journeys are going to be so so different. But what remains the same is- you are not alone and your future is brighter than the present when you are in the thick of it.
What I’ll also share are some tools that made my journey easier:
🌸acupuncture. My journey with acupuncture started when I was getting ready for fertility care because of the evidence that it can really be helpful for people struggling with infertility. But, it has remained a part of my life because I have found that it is so valuable in managing my stress and protecting my energy any time that my body is struggling and even when it’s not.
🌸protecting my peace. For some time, staying off of social media more was imperative for me, as was exercising regularly, spending time with friends and spending impromptu weekends away with my husband hiking and relaxing (which, we haven’t been able to do much since having kids!)
🌸protecting my health. Cleaning up my diet started in my 20s, but I got very serious about limiting processed foods and dangerous additives during my fertility journey. Again- when I noticed how much better my body was designed to feel, this became a lifelong habit for me and I know I’m healthier because of it.
🌸seeking alternative help. Again, my challenges with fertility led me to do my own research and start looking for people, in addition to my medical team, who could help me with symptoms and root causes. A functional medicine doctor, pelvic floor therapist, acupuncturist, therapist, yoga or mindfulness teachers…all incredible partners in this or any other health journey we may encounter.
No matter how you feel this weekend, know that you are allowed to have those feelings, you deserve to protect your peace, and you will be ok.
❤️This picture below is one I took when rushing out the door to get my one year old son ready for our “mommy and me” music class one morning. I remember rushing around to pack the diaper bag and seeing his shoes waiting in the middle of the floor for us. I stopped in my tracks, took a deep breath and smiled so big at these adorable tiny shoes, remembering so clearly how I longed to hold little shoes like that in my hand for so many years. So have faith, friends, and imagine all the beauty your future has in store for you ❤️

Trust Your Gut

So, I can’t let the whole month of April go by without talking about this topic. April is gut health awareness month and it’s too important a topic to not talk about!

Here’s the thing, guys…our microbiome is SUCH an important system in our body. Aside from the obvious and significantly important role of digesting food and absorbing nutrients, the microbiome plays a KEY role in healthy skin, mental health, energy, autoimmune conditions and SO much more. In case your wondering if a health challenge your facing is related to gut health…here’s a clue: IT PROBABLY IS. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Gut health has always been an important thing for me. I was the kid that struggled with anxiety and simultaneously had many school absences due to unexplainable stomach aches. Back then, we didn’t know the connection but it’s pretty clear to me now.

As an adult, I’ve continued to live with periods of anxiety and digestive discomfort. I’ve learned ALOT along the way, changed my lifestyle in some meaningful ways and helped many clients find the resources they need to upgrade their health via the gut. Cause again- it’s connected to EVERYTHING!

Anyway, I thought I’d bring some attention to this month by sharing a few things that have worked for me. Nothing in this world is solved with a cookie cutter approach and I am not your doctor and am in NO way giving medical advice. But, what worked for me might work for you and it’s certainly worth you doing the research to find out ways to optimize your gut health:

  1.  Don’t go it alone. For so many reasons, you should get support in this or any health journey. For one thing, there’s some comfort in knowing that so many others have been in your shoes and have healed. Because you can too. Also- getting the help of a trained professional will save you time and frustration and ensure you are getting adequate nutrition in the meantime. When I had to do a low FODMAP diet for some time, I needed both the ideas of my functional nutritionist to find foods that I could eat/make, and her guidance when reintroducing foods back into my life. She also reminded me that low FODMAP is not a healthy long term solution for many of us, and gave me the perfect amount of reassurance to try some foods again. SO, the lesson here- talk to your doctors, of course, but also seek a functional nutritionist who can really customize a plan for you. 
  2. Think outside the box. Some of my biggest successes in optimizing my heakth have come from my therapist, meditation trainings, acupuncturist and pelvic floor therapist. I highly respect the number of trained physicians and specialists I have worked with over the years, but I will say, I have felt my best when working with the “alternative” practitioners. They really shouldn’t be alternative at all- they should be included in all insurances and more physicians should be referring out to them, IMO. 
  3. Stress less, sleep more. WAY easier said than done, I know. But the connection between poor sleep/high stress and gut imbalance is pretty strong. When my stress levels are high of sleep quality is low, my body is not happy. It all adds up after a while. My favorite ways to manage this: daily meditation (twice a day if I can), daily exercise or long walks outside, scheduling time with family and friends, daily gratitude journaling and getting enough sunlight and fresh air. I also take some really great, natural supplements to help with sleep when I need them (my fave sleep support jellies can be found here:
  4. Eat clean. I mean, this should be a goal of ours all the time, right?! But, if you’re experiencing gut discomfort, bloating, skin irritation, depression/anxiety- it’s even more important. Many of my clients have had success testing for food allergies and cleaning up their nutrition. But again- you may want to work with a functional nutritionist to develop a customized plan. You may need more fiber, less fiber, a different kind of fiber, cooked veggies, low nightshades, etc…But, the basics of good nutrition- whole food, avoiding highly processed foods and added sugars, etc…are always a good idea. 
  5. Drink less- I know, I know…I didn’t wanna hear this either. But, the truth is, alcohol is inflammatory to the body and it’s worth reducing your intake. I find my sweet spot is 1-2 drinks per week. When I’m feeling like a glass of wine, a seltzer with lime, my fave adaptogenic drink or a warm cup of bone broth does satisfy me quite well. Here is my new favorite gut supporting drink:
  6. Supplement well. I know most of us have had to rely on over the counter or prescription meds at some point. In my experience, though (and this is NOT medical advice), it’s worth questioning what you’re prescribed. Every time I’ve been prescribed antibiotics for myself or my kids, I’ve asked the doctors if they are ABSOLUTELY needed. The answer has, surprisingly, always been “no”. I’m just so careful with antibiotics, as use of them in my younger years led to some pretty detrimental consequences. I’m also really adamant about trying to avoid antacids, PPIs, etc. again- NOT medical advice…I just encourage people to REALLY do their research before putting anything in their bodies. That being said, some well researched supplements have made a world of difference for me and I’m grateful, again, for the guidance of my functional nutritionist. My daily lineup is adaptogens, prebiotics, polyphenols, cbd and magnesium. That’s what works for me. Find  yourself a good practitioner who is open minded about the power of clean supplements (unfortunately, my GI doctor was not and it took my own work to find what I needed- but I’m SO glad I did the work!!) 

Lots of info here, I know. But, my goal is to shorten your journey to optimal health- whether its to improve immunity, energy, skin, gut health, etc… There are solutions out there and you will find them when you seek the right practitioners, find the root causes of your symptoms and remain open minded about all of the treatment options out there.
To your health!

Spring treats and good eats


Happy Passover! Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
Easter is coming up in our family the next two weekends. Yes, two- cause my husband and I both have blended families and my family is out of state. So we drag out holidays and I’m not the least bit sad about it (still a kid at heart 😂)

This weekend, we’ll be heading to my sister in laws house and I’m super excited to see everyone and feast on lots of good stuff. She asked me to bring a salad and I’m thrilled for that too- cause those of you who know me know cooking is not my talent 🤷🏻‍♀️

Next weekend, we’ll be hosting my family though- so I’ve been busy looking up healthier recipes to make. And there are so many- and guess what?? They can be JUST as delicious as our “traditional” holiday indulgences…

So I was inspired to throw together this quick blog for you with some fun Spring/Holiday ideas for your next get together too 🥗🍳🧇🥧

🍳LETS TALK BRUNCH! There’s probably not a meal out there that I enjoy more than brunch. And not just for the mimosas (though those don’t hurt). And believe it or not, brunch doesn’t have to be full of carbs and fat- it can even be tasty without those. My faves?? Make a huge fruit salad and a frittata. And better yet- make double so you have easy breakfasts and snacks for the week 👌👌

DON’T SKIMP ON VEGGIES : You know the best way to enjoy a holiday meal without feeling like crap after?? Fill half your plate with veggies. Yep- same thing you should be doing for all your meals, only on holidays, that other half of your plate may be filled with some yummy tradional foods you don’t get to eat very often. Awesome!! But, still nourish your body with some veggies!! If you’re heading to Easter lunch/dinner, bring a fun Spring salad or a cute veggie plate, like this one, found here:

I mean, how cute is this?!?!

AND LASTLY, DON’T FORGET A SWEET TREAT: What’s a holiday without some sweets, right? Personally, I do a very low gluten and lactose diet, and that can be hard when it comes to desserts. Here’s a recipe I’m gonna make for a sweet and refreshing Spring treat:

Love this for an Easter treat 🐰🐥//INGREDIENTS//-

1 cup almond flour

4 scoops vanilla IsaLean shake (you can find that here:

2 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (separated into 1 1/2 cups and 1 cup)

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

3 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS: Put all the ingredients except 1 cup of coconut in a food processor and blend until well combined.Scoop out a heaped teaspoon of mixture and roll into a ball with hands.Finish off by rolling in coconut to cover the outside of the ball.Set in fridge for 1 hour to chill and set.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend, time spent doing the things you absolutely love and joyful memories made ☀️☀️

Off to dye the Easter eggs with the kids! 🥚🥚
Cheers, friends!

Heading out tonight?! Read this first 🍱🍸🌯🍻

Hi friends! Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend!!

Tonight is my annual “Christmas in March” get together with my best friends that I grew up with. Yeah- it’s a thing. December is just so crazy busy, all of us with young kids are battling the January germs, and Feb is a short month. So, we started celebrating our holidays with each other and our families in March a few years ago and, hey, I kinda like it…cause let’s be honest, March feels like the LONGEST month ever!!!

So, we’re all getting babysitters and heading out tonight, then doing a kids’ party tomorrow. But, even for such a short trip out of town, my husband and I, and the kids, notice when we’re away from our own kitchen for a few meals. So, in planning how to keep myself feeling my best these next few days, I thought I’d share some of my fave tips for eating out- while staying on track with health goals AND having fun!!

✅Start your day off right! You know the best way to enjoy a really good meal without feeling crazy bloated after?? Don’t starve yourself all day and don’t make it a whole day of indulgence either. I always start my day with my superfood shake, have fruits, veggies and whole food for my snacks and stay on top of my water intake. That way I’m not starving when I get to the restaurant, which is when we’re most likely to make a not so great menu choice.

✅ Choose an à la carte restaurant over a buffet to avoid over-eating. Restaurants with a pool or dance floor are great weekend destinations. A picnic spot or a resort where you can play different games are also great destinations to spend your weekend in a healthy way.

✅ Try a salad 🥗 before a meal – – not only is it full of nutrients, but it will curb hunger and keep you from over-eating. Try using lemon 🍋, vinegar, and a little olive oil as a dressing. If you get a house dressing, definitely ask for it on the side.

✅ Order Wisely: choose grilled, baked or steamed items and look for lean poultry, fish or a vegetarian protein. Ask for veggies for atleast one of the sides- and ask for them to not be cooked in butter or oils, as restaurants almost always use the more inflammatory oils for any cooking.

✅ Don’t hate me, but I always order a drink or appetizer, not both. Our bodies are truly meant to metabolize food in smaller amounts than we get at restaurants, so I try to remember this and leave some food on my plate too.

✅Don’t forget your water! These days, I feel great when I stick to one drink, but if you tend to do more, drink a glass of water or seltzer in between alchohol drinks. Again, not always easy but always worth it!

I feel like you all know these tips already, but sometimes they are good reminders. Maybe writing this was really just to keep myself accountable tonight??

Happy weekend, all!! Enjoy every moment ✨✨✨

I did yoga for (almost) 30 days in a row. Here’s what I learned…

So, you guys know that working out is a SUPER important part of my life. And that I do it regularly. And that I include a mix of strength training, cardio and yoga. But I’ve personally never been one to for yoga more than 1-2 times a week. For many silly reasons…

I like a “hard” workout. I like the endorphin rush I get from cardio or heavy lifting, and I made up my mind a long time ago that I wouldn’t get that from yoga (again- VERY silly).

But this past January, I committed to doing 30 days of yoga in a row. I thought the increased opportunities for flexibility and focusing on my breathing would be good for me (it was). Maybe I also wanted to just test out how my body felt when I committed to one form of exercise consistently? Either way, it was a good experiment and here’s what I learned:

✨It’s good to challenge our bodies in new ways. Our muscles get very used to doing the same type of exercise on the same schedule, and that’s not adaptive or productive in the long term.

✨Yoga is a real workout!! My shoulders never felt so challenged, even in my days of heavy machine lifting or endless shoulder presses. And the ab work is added benefit!

✨Everything gets better when you take 20 minutes to breathe. My husband and I were just explaining this to our son, who was feeling worried about something. We told him that, most often, things get better in about 20 minutes. Pain, anxiety, stress- if you can breathe through the next 20 minutes, it will lessen. And as we were explaining this to him, I realized that this is one reason yoga is so good for me. No matter how busy I was, stressed about work, worried about things I couldn’t control or feeling a little blah, taking that 20-30 minutes out of my day and mindfully focusing on breath made me feel better. Every. Single. Time

My little yogis ❤️

✨Yoga is for everyone!! I’ve always loved recommending yoga to my clients and customizing poses to fit their unique needs. But during this experiment of mine, it also became apparent to me how much of a family activity yoga is (or could be). The kids joined me for about 50% of the workouts (though getting to do solo ones sometimes was the BEST). It made my trainer heart so so happy to sit in a sunny window and hear my kids breathing next to me on their mats, or to look over and see them attempting a pose. I couldn’t think of a better way to model self regulation and perseverance- and I really think we all benefited from slowing down a bit.

There was so much more I got from this month of yoga, but that’s the idea. And guess what?! My “regular” workouts didn’t suffer a bit, even if they were shorter than usual last month. I’m back to cycling, kickboxing and lifting with a stronger core, stronger shoulders, more flexible hamstrings and a deeper perspective about exercise- and life- in general.

Namaste ❤️

Mental Health IS Health

Guys- it’s been a crazy few weeks! It started last week with some pretty significant work and personal stress coupled with the horrific news story of a woman who killed her three children here in MA. It’s taken me a week and a half to even begin writing about it- or even process it. I mean, it’s more tragedy than one person, one family or a whole community can bear. And I just can’t shake the sadness thinking about it.

You guys know I advocate for health and wellness- in an annoying amount, probably 🤷🏻‍♀️ Fitness, nutrition, alternative therapies and integrative health are absolute passions of mine. Which is why I care so much about the topic of mental health. There is NO separating physical from mental health, and we should stop pretending there is. We absolutely need both to survive and to thrive. And, at some point in our lives, we’re all going to need to focus on both. And it’s really REALLY time we start prioritizing both!

As someone with a lifetime of pretty bad anxiety…I understand firsthand that you can have a healthy body and not be completely well. I also see how much easier it is for people to talk about their migraines than their depression, their insomnia than PTSD, a bad back than anxiety. Not only are so many of these things related…there’s also NOTHING shameful about talking about our mental health struggles.

I guess I’m here to say that my heart breaks for any woman- or ANYONE- who feels they need to live their struggles in silence.

⭐️If someone isn’t ok, let’s make it normal and inviting for them to talk about it- as often as for as long as they need to.

⭐️Let’s take the shame out of any necessary treatment. And mental health days from work. And any level of outpatient or inpatient care a person needs.

⭐️Lets talk about our health early, often and openly

I’ve found some really tools over the year to balance my own struggles- fitness, nutrition, supplements, meditation, acupuncture, daily sunlight and fresh air, socializing as often as possible, journaling, gratitude, prayer, volunteering, therapy, sometimes medication and the most supportive friends and family.

There are many tools and some might work for you and some might not work all the time. But my hope for every reader, friend and loved one in my life and beyond is that we will all start prioritizing our health…in every way we need to.

I invite you all to share your stories, struggles and successes. Let’s keep this conversation open and ongoing…so no one ever feels for one second that they are alone ❤️

Pain Free Fitness

No, you’re not alone. Yes, you can have less pain!!

Ok, so we’re a couple weeks into the new year and many people may have started or resumed a workout routine. I applaud all of you for that, but I know that, with increased workouts, sometimes comes increased joint pain. Or, maybe joint pain is keeping you from working out in the first place…
First- you’re not alone. The number of clients I have who have a history of back, knee or shoulder pain is quite large. There are ALOT of reasons we are seeing so many pain conditions, but the important thing to know is- it CAN get better!!!
Here are a few of my favorite tips for promoting good joint health in general:

  1. Strengthen the surrounding muscles to relieve pain on opposing muscles and decrease the work on your joints.
  2. Stretch often and correctly- this increases your range of motion and prevents injury. Include a dynamic stretching routine before any workout and a static stretching routine (where you hold positions for 20-60 seconds per muscle group) after a workout. 
  3. Aim to achieve a healthy weight- every 1 pound of excess weight puts about 4 pounds of excess force on your joints. That adds up. BUT- the good side of this coin…every pound you lose equates to four pounds of excess pressure off your joints!! 
  4. Watch your form and posture, especially if you’re new to exercise of starting back up after a while. It really is worth investing in a personal trainer or some group fitness initially. 
  5. Use non harmful modalities. I get it- we all need the occasional NSAID to reduce pain, but chronic use is linked to GI problems, significant kidney problems, heart issues, cognitive impairment and slower muscle, tendon and cartilage regeneration (exactly what you don’t want to happen if you experience joint pain!). I love a nice mix of ice, heat, acupuncture, cbd, essential oils, epsom salt baths and meditation. 
  6. Try an anti-inflammatory diet- reason number 800 to transition to this form of eating (no lie)! It’s super important to limit processed foods (cereals, breads, crackers, packaged snacks…) and try more of these: cold water fish, fruits, veggies, nuts, olive oil, lentils, beans and whole grains 
  7. Sip some bone broth to support joint health and collagen production while also reducing inflammation. I love a cup of bone broth at night while I’m watching tv or reading- keeps me from eating junk, supports digestive and bone health and enhances the immune system too 👌👌
  8. Start slowwww. I know everyone wants to rush into exercising 5 days a week in the New Year, but focus on walking, stretching and foundational strengthening at first. Every few weeks, increase your intensity and the duration of your workouts. Better yet- work with a trainer who can do all this for you!! 

Here’s to a healthy and active year ahead, friends 🏃🏋🏻‍♀️🏊🧘🏻‍♀️🥾

Well hello there, 2023…

Can someone please tell me HOW 2022 is almost over already??? Like, how?!

Maybe it’s the fact they I have young kids and never enough sleep 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Or that running the businesses and working my therapy job has my weeks flying by. Or maybe it’s that 2022 was the year we kind of started living again after the strange two years that preceded it. But anyway- here we are. New Year’s Eve and I’m doing what I always like to do- reflect, set intentions and smile at all the beautiful memories.

In so many ways, it was an amazing year for sure.Complete with our first family trip to Disney where we got to see the kids living in pure joy for 8 whole days and lots of other quick trips with family and friends. We started really hanging out with people again, which I’ve realized is essential to my wellbeing. We sent our oldest off to kindergarten and I cried so very very hard. And then quickly beamed with pride seeing how he has adjusted out there in the world without his mama for every moment (who knew??!)

A week of smiles with these kids was one of our best memories in 2022

I’ve also learned so much more about myself this last year. I’ve continued to realize how much my passion for wellness means to me- and how I need it to take a more dominant role in my life (more on that to come). I’ve learned more about my body and mind and resilience and fears- and it’s all shaping me to be stronger and to take control of my health and well-being, when that has felt a bit overwhelming at times in the past. I’ve learned that, in so many ways, I’m responsible for how I think and feel- I own that and I intend to keep on healing, growing and really living.

Now- for intentions. I owe one of my awesome personal training clients for this idea: “23 in 23”-

Maybe some of you have already heard of this- I’m sure the idea is floating around. But basically- you make a list of 23 things you’re going to do 23 times this coming year. Of course it can align with your goals (23 HIIT rides on the Peleton), but it can (and should!) also align with what brings you joy. I can’t wait to read 23 books, call friends and family for long, deep phone conversations, get together with friends more, take long family walks and bike rides, cook 23 new meals, write 23 actual letters to people I love). What about what helps keep you centered? 23 household organization tasks for this girl!

Anyway, as I’m setting my intentions for the year, it feels so good to focus on things that foster joy, relationships, peace…all of which will bring greater health and wealth in time 🙏

My wish for you all is that you are also smiling at a few things that brought you joy in 2022, validating and then moving on from what didn’t, and scheduling in health AND happiness in 2023 ❤️

Cheers! 🥂🥂


Just breathe…

But really…just try it

Ok friends- it’s the last blog in this “Surviving the Holidays” series and I have one last piece of advice…that I’m reminding myself to do each day too…

You might think a Trainer/Health Coach might tell you how important it is to exercise when you’re going to be sitting for long hours of travel or eating and drinking more indulgently than usual and you would be right. I do think that’s important. Like, really, super helpful.

BUT, if I’m being real here, I think a bigger threat to our health during a busy holiday season is stress. Anyone else have a constant running list of “to do’s” going through their mind all the time this month? Add that to added financial stress, non stop social engagements and general overstimulation/lack of sleep. I LOVE the holiday season but I can still feel my health taking a toll as the days go on.

So, while I think is important to squeeze in a walk in the fresh air and sun each day and get in workouts when you can (10 minutes goes a long way!), I think it’s more important that we all find some time to breathe, be present and be more mindful each and every day. Stress is stress- good or bad- and the one of the best ways to counteract it is through mindfulness.

According to research from the American Psychological Association- and definitely confirmed in my own life- here are some of the benefits of mindfulness:

✨decreased rumination of thoughts

✨stress reduction

✨improved working memory and focus

✨improved cognitive flexibility

✨decreased emotional reactivity

✨higher relationship satisfaction

✨improved immune function

I know what you’re thinking… “I can’t wait to start a great mindfulness practice on January 1st” And, while I think regularly implementing some type of mindfulness consistently in the new year is an amazing goal, why not start now?? I promise you that taking 5-10 minutes a day will not keep you from getting done what you need to- in fact, I think you’d be surprised at how much more productive we can be after taking some time to meditate, journal or breathe.

So take some time now to light that (non toxic) candle, throw on a cozy blanket, sit by the fire or near some sunlight and do a ten minute meditation or fill out this gratitude journal:

My goals for the next few weeks are daily meditation and walks, writing in my gratitude journal for five minutes a day and squeezing in some acupuncture too. I’d love to hear how you’re committing to some self care from now til the New Year.

Happy Holidays to those who celebrate and peace and joy to you all!!

To your health,
