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…

Why We Should Be Detoxing OUR LIVER FOR OPTIMAL HEALTH

01/08/2022

Our livers’ number one job is to help us detox. While the liver works hard at this crucial task, we don’t make it easy. Cocktails, long sedentary work days, snacking, poor sleep, poor circulation, and not consuming enough herbs or high-vibe foods to keep everything in motion can make this role a taxing one, so we need to help our major detox organ with a little jumpstart. Enter Traditional Chinese Medicine. In TCM, the liver is known to be responsible for not just metabolizing…

Why FINANCIAL LITERACY Is So Important for Women

30/07/2022

Let’s go girls! As we’ve talked about before, women encounter patronizing “tips” and stereotypes constantly when it comes to finances and money. This breeds confusion and shame and sends the message that finances are a masculine concern. Which is bullshit. Normalizing conversations about money and educating ourselves about finance is so important for women. Financial literacy is being able to understand and use personal finance tools and fundamentals to build a healthy relationship with money. Without financial literacy, we become stuck…

12 best breakfasts for weight loss to keep you full until lunch

26/07/2022

The optimum breakfast for weight loss doesn’t have to be boring, bland or the least appetising option. To lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit, yes, but fat loss is all about your overall calorie consumption and expenditure across your day, week, and month – not just one meal.

WHAT NOT TO DO If You Want to Increase Your Metabolism

23/07/2022

SHOULD YOU Eat Breakfast?

21/07/2022

Growing up, we were told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But, then again, we were also told that there would be terrible consequences if we didn’t wait an hour after eating to swim and that it was illegal to have the interior car lights on while driving, so … we’re a little skeptical. “The research pendulum continues to swing back and forth in respect to whether or not it is ‘better’ to eat breakfast versus skip it.
