On one hand I absolutely love the idea of starting new, especially when it is accompanied with the mindset of being a better version of who we are today, growth baby! However, sometimes around the New Year we accompany the idea of “new me” with unrealistic goals and an unhealthy way in which we go about achieving these goals. When we set the bar so high and try to go from 0 to 100, we are truly only setting ourselves up for failure. It doesn’t have to be this way, becoming a better version of who you are today doesn’t have to be so damn hard. We simply have to start small. In order to...more
The excitement and energy around the holidays is unlike any other. It might be cold but the holiday lights and festive songs create a cheer and joy in the air and the gathering of friends and family throughout the month feels like a big warm hug all month long that can have love seeping out of our pores and smiles on our faces from ear to ear.

For most people when it comes to well being we initially think of diet and exercise but sleep habits are also critical to long-term health and behavior-change success.

Last week I listed The Five to Thrive and the very first thing on the list is hydration. Water isn’t always a favorite go to option when we feel thirsty. For many years I was guilty of consuming maybe a quarter of the amount of water my body really needed and instead was drawn towards lots of coffee, drinks with a flavor to them, which most of the time meant lots of sugar or fake sugar and I would throw in a soda or two once in a while. Consuming sugary processed beverages will only make us want to consume more things that are sugary and processed, so as a result I was eating poorly as...more
Thrive is something that I’ve been manifesting for a long time, I want to say the better part of 10 years but I never knew how it would unfold. I knew that I wanted to HELP, I’ve always wanted to be able to connect with people one on one, listen to their dreams and also the barriers holding them back from achieving those dreams. Wellness is my passion. Learning how to take care of my body and in turn my mind has helped me become a stronger and happier person and I wish nothing less than that for everyone in this big beautiful world.
I am lucky enough to have found an incredible...more
