Have you ever been in a situation when you feel like you can’t keep your emotions under control? Like they have taken over, your thoughts are all over the place and making a sensible decision is not going to happen? You just want to hide for a while or make the problem magically disappear. You’re talking to people near you at that point, but they aren’t understanding what’s happening to you. Why you’re so upset and speaking like that? What is going on? Nobody can help you at that point, not even yourself. You have dealt with stuff like this before, but this time it’s different. This time you’ve lost it all. Lost the ability to cope, to think, to breathe, to ask for help even.

When you think of yoga what comes to mind? Probably really flexible people doing all sorts of handstands and other balancing poses. I know that’s what I thought when I first started thinking about yoga. “Well, I’ll get there. That’s what it’s all about right?” That’s what I told myself. “It’s all about learning to do awesome poses that I can upload to Instagram and show off to the world.” Continue reading “A New Way to Think About Yoga”

As the seasons change, it’s easy to lose sight of our healthy goals.  We choose the couch over the treadmill. Maybe there are a few more pizza deliveries when it becomes much harder to get fresh, local, fruit and vegetables. While that approach is certainly easier, it won’t lead to great health outcomes over time. It’s time to start thinking about healthy habits that last throughout the seasons.   Continue reading “Healthy In Every Season”

Do you struggle to switch off and relax? I mean really relax without the urge to just switch on the tv or your iPad as a distraction. Struggling to switch off, isn’t just an adult problem, sadly it is now very much a child and teenage problem as well. Constant over stimulation from unhealthy thinking and poor lifestyle and behavior patterns are playing havoc with a large majority of the world’s population.  Many think it’s just the way life is. They don’t realize or recognize with simple lifestyle changes how much easier life can be. Continue reading “GUEST POST|Simple Ways You And Your Family Can STOP And Let Go Of Stress”

We live in a strange world today, driven by money and systems. We have a system for everything and while we might feel free, we are just in a big cage doing someone else’s bidding. We work 8- 9 hours a day on most days of our lives and come home to our family tired and exhausted. We sleep almost the same amount of time in order to function properly and our main function is to work, mostly for someone else. On most days of our lives, we only have a few hours for ourselves or those close to us but we are tired during these hours. Continue reading “Take A Leap of Faith”

Make the World Kind Again

As you know, I don’t believe in coincidences, therefore it came as no surprise when a random like on Instagram turned into something so much more. I met Oriana back in December when she liked a photo on my newly created Instagram account. The name of her account caught my attention and I paid her a visit. I fell in love with her work, message, and mission from the moment her feed displayed on my phone.
