You brush your hair and teeth daily, but have you ever brushed your skin?

Intuition: Our Most Underutilized Gift

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” Albert Einstein I believe our intuition is an innate gift - we are born with it. For some it has been lost, pushed deep down inside, and for others it shines brightly (when we choose to listen).

The Truth About Self-Care

Self-care is often not all gorgeous sunrises and sunsets - in fact, it can leave a very bad taste in your mouth! It is making a spreadsheet of your debt and enforcing a morning routine and cooking yourself healthy meals and no longer just running from your problems and calling distractions your solution.

Walk Off Your Stress… Literally!

What’s ‘Grounding’ and Why Does It Matter?

When is the last time you walked barefoot on the earth, with your toes touching the soil or sand? There’s a notion called grounding or earthing in the wellness community that I believe in wholeheartedly. Grounding is simply walking barefoot and feeling a deeper connection to the earth, with the goal of tapping into the earth’s negatively charged ions. To reap the full benefits of this connection, many recommend walking barefoot near or in bodies of water, wet grass, or wet sand.
