Many of us started this new year off wanting to change something, wanting to do something different. Chances are though, most of us have not been as successful as we would have liked. The biggest reason people fail at creating and sticking to new habits is that they don’t keep doing it.
That seems obvious: if you don’t keep doing a habit, it won’t really become a habit. So what’s the solution to this obvious problem? Find a way to keep doing it.
When you look at it this way, the key to forming a habit is not how [...]
I love helping women. I love to help women in practical ways, in ways that will help them feel more peaceful and rested. To help them feel like they accomplished something. I also like to help women accept that it is okay if they DON’T get it ALL done. It is okay if they DON’T have it ALL together. And I like to let them know that they are not alone and MANY other women feel the same way.
I think that by admitting it and banding together, we can help one another be more comfortable in [...]

I was doing so well last week, and was determined to keep it up, but my body did not agree. Evidently it thought that exercise was bad for you. I finally dragged myself to the chiropractor/sports medicine doctor on Tuesday.
Turns out my walking/slow running exacerbated an issue with my hip and lower back. My doc proceeded to do some physical therapy, which I think is just a modern day, civilized form of torture.
He told me to take it very easy this week. No treadmill. NO running. For now.
Great. I finally got myself in the [...]
We see lots of skinny women in the media, and we see celebrity moms who look great within weeks after giving birth (Beyonce!)
And then we look at ourselves, and wonder how can we ever get anywhere CLOSE to that? (remember though, celebrities have nannies, chefs and personal trainers at their disposal!)
We are already busy, every minute of our waking (and not-so-awake) hours filled with taking care of everything and everyone around us.
And therein lies a part of the problem. See you are busy taking care of everyone else, but you forgot to put yourself on your [...]
To keep kids healthy and give them the energy they need to learn and play, having good healthy snacks are important. Many times we fill our cupboards with boxed snacks as a quick and easy alternative, but are your kids getting what they need from these snacks?
Below are snacks that are less processed and more natural. They may take a little more planning and a few more minutes to prepare, but your kids will be better equipped to make it through math tutoring or soccer practice.
Fruits grapes- straight from the fridge, or try them frozen apples- sliced [...]
