10 SIMPLE THINGS THAT ARE Distracting You from Being Happy

02/07/2022

Happiness—whether we view it as an accomplishment or a state of mind, we all want to be happy people, right? Sounds simple … do things that make us smile, play music that puts us in a good mood.

Why You Should Try a SOUND BATH

21/06/2022

There’s a reason it’s called a bath. Sound baths are a way to totally and completely immerse yourself in the warm, refreshing, soothing sounds lovingly played at the hands of an experienced singing bowl “performer,” for lack of a better word.

Hailed for millennia for its health-boosting properties, drinking green tea for weight loss is one of those long-standing health food claims that rears its head every few years.

Are you GASLIGHTING YOURSELF?

25/04/2022

Gaslighting feels terrible. If a friend or loved one has ever made you question your sense of reality by downplaying or manipulating a situation, it’s absolutely awful. You feel unseen, unheard, and start to believe that you’re crazy, despite your best instincts, understanding, and personal experience. What’s even more dangerous? Doing it to yourself. Leaning into your feelings and emotions isn’t easy, but being honest with yourself is a crucial start to understanding boundaries, self-love, and setting yourself up for growth. Taking…

15/01/2022

The correct answer is…wait for it…KEEN-wah. But no matter how you’ve been pronouncing the word, I hope you’ve been eating the gluten-free ancient grain, because it comes with a ton of health benefits. 1. Quinoa is packed with protein.

The Benefits of EATING DINNER EARLY

21/12/2021

When we think of early dinner, our minds go straight to a geriatric early-bird special. While New Yorkers and most of Europe are probably scoffing at the idea of dinner by 6 at the latest, wellness, weight maintenance, and energy levels have been saying otherwise. Though we don’t need to hold ourselves to a rigid early-dinner-only mentality, it’s a smart call at certain times of the month (speaking for the ladies). We tend to need more cals and carbs closer…
