"It's time to come home now. It's time to live as a home to yourself. A home that is both sturdy and gentle, both welcoming and safe. Tuck in and rest easy now. You are at home.

Finding balance through Wise Effort

Finding balance through Wise Effort

Libra season is coming upon us towards the end of the month (my birthday month!!), which is good timing to chat about my reflections over the last few months about balance.It's crazy how much balance plays an integral part of our well-being in our lives.If we do too much, we get tired, exhausted, overwhelmed, sick.If we do too little, we get stuck, feel stagnant and lazy and it gets hard to become active, we get sick.If we eat too much, we feel bloated, our bellies hurt us, we gain excess weight, we get sick.If we eat too little, we don't get enough nutrients that...

And if it's a bunch of different things at once- that's okay too.We numb ourselves. We bury our feelings. We build a wall around our hearts. We live in our...


Summer seasonal self-care

Summer seasonal self-care

Seasonal Self-Care: Summer There were times when I thought Spring wouldn't ever end, but what I learned throughout the last season at home is that nature continues moving forward. Nature is resilient. And so are we. We made it through and we will continue to make it through. So.. Happy Summer!!Here are some things I like to do for self-care during summertime: kayaking  smoothies ~ my recent favorite recipe is: [a handful or two] frozen kale, [1/2] frozen banana, [a handful] frozen blueberries, [1 scoop] green superfood powder, [1 tbsp] peanut butter, [1 tbsp] chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk hot...
