How To Start Doing More Yoga

In case you didn’t know, yoga is not about finding all the cool ways your body can bend for that perfect Instagram shot. 😛 Yoga is so much more about how your body and your mind connect in practice. I’m not naturally someone who thought that yoga was a necessity in my life. I love boxing, spinning, and always being on the go. I’m used to moving so much both physically and mentally, but it wasn’t until earlier this year where I truly felt like all of this high intensity and high energy, was really working against me. I needed to find a way to balance myself …

Why Saying No Is Important To Your Happiness

As a recovering people pleaser, I know how satisfying giving an initial “yes” response can be. Your friend asks you to go to a party, your family member asks you to do a favor, your boss is asking you to do more than your job function. My natural inclination was always to say “yes” even if inside I didn’t want to. I wanted to feel amenable and liked.

How to Start a Gratitude Journal

Anyone ever unexpectedly go through some life hiccups? *Raises hand* Did that driver cut you off this morning? Did you get into a fight with your friend? Or maybe there has been a new update to your relationship status? The list truly does go on and on over what we tend to focus our minds on! Instead of throwing a party for one with the theme being an infinite spiral of negative emotions; try introducing a positive framework into your life. It sounds so simplistic, right? Don’t think negatively, think positively. Sometimes it really can be that simple though, when you practice gratitude as a part …
