Appreciating Life

...is something we don't do. Be honest. You don't appreciate the life in your veins the way you should. It's because you're probably healthy. Happy (ish). Able to do day to day activities. You can eat. Go to the bathroom. Sleep. Breathe. And it's because we are functional that we don't appreciate our life. We… Continue reading Appreciating Life

Slowing Down

If you've been following along with my little yoga challenge on my channel then you'll be familiar with the topic: going slowly.  At the beginning of November, I thought about doing something physically tougher than usual but also something that we could learn from. I settled on a slow flow challenge. What's mentally harder than… Continue reading Slowing Down

I’m Full: Respect Eating Habits

So here we are, the magical week of Thanksgiving. All the yummy foods of our nostalgic, American holiday are approaching.

Cross-Training

Hello! I'm here to talk to you about that thing we know we should be doing but that we most likely aren't doing. Cross-training. And NO I am not talking about Crossfit...that thing that ends up in injury because form isn't the focus. Hopefully, we all know what cross-training is. If not, I'll give you the low… Continue reading Cross-Training

Motivation, What I Mean When I Say

“Don’t Smoke Around Me”

First of all, yuck. Second of all, I'm not just being pretentious I promise. There's a reason you shouldn't smoke around me, or anyone else for that matter. But I'll cut to the chase. I have sensitive lungs. And I am sensitive to a lot of chemicals. Which means that your one puff of smoke near… Continue reading “Don’t Smoke Around Me”

Running Shoes: Your Best Friend

Running doesn't have that much in terms of fancy gear. Watches, apps, reflective clothes, and headlamps are all nice but not necessary, right? All we really need is a shirt (maybe), shorts, and shoes. Ding, ding, ding! That last one is very important. We don't have that much gear but that one thing, our shoes, is extremely important.… Continue reading Running Shoes: Your Best Friend
