Self-Care isn't always glamorous

In this episode, I decided to share a beautiful writing by another person that I've seen circulating on the internet over the years. I chose to share it at this time of the year as we go through the holiday season and into another brand new year.

“Self-care is often a very unbeautiful thing.

It is making a spreadsheet of your debt and enforcing a morning routine and cooking yourself healthy meals and no longer just running from your problems and calling the distraction a solution.

It is often doing the ugliest thing that you have to do, like sweat through another workout or tell a toxic friend you don’t want to see them anymore or get a second job so you can have a savings account or figure out a way to accept yourself so that you’re not constantly exhausted from trying to be everything, all the time and then needing to take...

PODCAST: Are you on the top of your 'to-do' list?

In this episode, I'm giving a pep talk if you will about how to shift from focusing so much of your energy on externals and doing and get back to your center, yourself and BE present with who you are and what you want.

Let's face it ladies, many of us are frazzled by life. We are juggling A LOT in burned out bodies without 'the tribe'. We've lost sight of what is most important - BEing nourished (in all ways). 

I go into what I think being nourished means as well as how you can totally forget your to-do list when you shift gears and put your well being at the top.

How to take a magnesium bath

It's no secret, I'm a big fan of minerals. One of the ways I teach my clients how to remineralize is through topical application. There are a number of ways and reasons to do this. 

Magnesium is the first one I recommend anyone get started with. In a recent post, I explained to you how magnesium helps to relax muscles. But it does so much more than that. 

Why Use Magnesium Transdermally?

The vast majority (if not everyone) of people today have a magnesium deficiency. Our soil has been depleted for so long, our food is too and most people do not get enough in the diet as it stands. It's also not in our water these days. Not to mention, many things easily deplete our tissue magnesium stores.

Taking oral magnesium supplements is often not enough to restore tissue levels of magnesium since we do not actually assimilate all that is ingested. So we must apply it topically to help rebuild (aka: transdermally).

How to declutter like a mofo and free up ENERGY

When someone finds themselves in burnout, the last thing they have the bandwidth for is reorganizing their entire life. However, it's the decluttering that clears space and frees up energy. Digging out of burnout may seem like a monumental task, but you know what they say; "how do you eat an elephant?"

One bite at a time is a great way to view decluttering. If we don't CHOOSE to create space we will only continue to weigh ourselves down stress. In my podcast episode, I talk more about decluttering and why January is a great month to do this. If you are heading into a new year already feeling burned out, this is your first step to set you up so you can climb out and stay out. 

One of the fastest ways out of stress, and to help keep it away, is to declutter your environment. Clutter causes anxiety and stress in many different ways. It also...

How To Overcome 'Energetic Clutter' From Burning You Out

Are you getting burned out by all the things you take into your life that seem like you want to pursue but they just load up like too many plates you have to spin?

Prefer to listen instead? Follow Me On SoundCloud:



As a multi-passionate, creative entrepreneur, I've found it quite easy to let the fire of my drive and hunger consume me in a way that leads to burn out.

And I've seen this very pattern in the women I coach, as well as the students I teach.

BURNED OUT with no energy to pursue what you really want!

It starts with an excitement for what is possible. However, that excitement without boundaries or clarity can end up becoming too much of a good thing. It becomes excessive energy, TOO MUCH to carry.  Which leads to overwhelm, exhaustion and the metaphorical 'spinning too many plates syndrome'.

What happens is then you end up not being able to focus, because your energy is leaking out in way too many ways and directions.

Where there is no focus or boundaries, enthusiasm can...

How To Create A Life Full Of Ultimate Pleasure

*Note: Listen to the full episode on the podcast here.

It's totally possible to create a pleasure filled life that you love... even if you are currently in so much physical, mental, emotional pain you can't even fathom how.

Perhaps you're currently struggling with being pigeonholed into a corner of burnout from your own particular set of life challenges (your health included). You may find you are so overwhelmed that all you want to do is check out or numb out in some way by the end of the day. You no longer experience pleasure for the sake of pleasure alone.

I've been there...

Maybe right now you are worrying way too much about the potential of your current health hazards and symptoms, thinking you have some kind of scary illness or disease. This level of over-worrying is making it impossible for you to experience all that life has to offer.

Whether it is stress, anxiety or a recent illness, the challenges you have been through or a currently going through have completely drained...

You Deserve To Take The Best Care Of Yourself Every Day

Hey girl, are you overwhelmed and exhausted from constantly “powering through” and pushing yourself?

Then listen up… I’m here to give you a little pep talk and some ‘tough love’. And by all means, if there is a better way to say 'tough love' -please let me know, 'cause I’ve shied away from it in the past myself feeling it as criticism and judgement. That’s not what I want to relay… I want to relay LOVE about something you need to hear, but maybe aren’t willing to see it fully or say it to yourself yet.

I speak to and work with women weekly/daily who feel so frustrated and burned out… this is an epidemic that women collectively face and a pattern women choose to continue and perpetuate and it has to stop.

I talk a lot about self-careI write about it, I share my own story, I post memes about it.

Today, I want to dig into it a bit further because self-care is more than just doing some nice things for yourself,...

Why A Spring Detox Is The Best Self Care Ever

As you may already know I'm a big fan of self-care. Taking the best care of yourself in all ways, mentally emotionally, physically, spiritually is the best gift you can give yourself.

Self-care means no more putting yourself as an afterthought ladies. Self-care requires a true deep commitment to yourself and your growth.

Spring is a beautiful season and time of year to bring forth new growth. It's a higher energy time of year, a time of renewal.

Every year in the spring I notice a desire to 'detox'. I start to clear out things in my life that are no longer serving me. One big way is through taking much better care of my physical body so I can feel lighter and freer. I tend to want to choose more fresh foods, in season veggies and drink more herbal teas.

It's a great time of year to re-calibrate.

To let go of all the things that are in the way of allowing you to burst forth fully with the energy of spring. This is why I love devoting some time to detox every spring and let go of...

Why You Should Float in a Tank of Salt

health minerals self care Feb 08, 2019

I can still remember the first time I heard about salt float tanks, from friend Julie. I couldn't comprehend the concept of getting into a giant dark tank of salt water and just lay still in there for more than an hour. That was back when I was in hustle mode and couldn't meditate for shit.

Now that I've learned the art of zen-like behaviors, such as that of actually being still (ish), I am ALL about self-care practices like floating. My sweetie and I enjoy going to our local float place for a date night now and then to just relax and let go of stress. And we always get THE BEST sleep those nights.

It's a bit of a learning curve for some folks to fully benefit. I've found the more I go the more I can fully relax, meditate and visualize. It's a powerful space for deeper healing and benefits a myriad of things.

If you have ever had the thought or feeling that you could just 'slip away' and float leisurely some where away from your daily life & grind... I'm pretty sure you should...
