14 Surefire Morning Rituals to Start Your Day Right

Mornings are not easy. Doesn’t it make you wonder why those people in the coffee commercials are always ecstatic to roll out of bed, open their window drapes, and start the daily grind? It’s almost like the sun is smiling back at them. I’m a mom of two little angels and now that I’m months away from having my third child, I admit, mornings but can tough. But more than just a perfect cup of coffee, there are tons of morning habits you can do to start AND end your day right.

So let’s get right to it, shall we?

Women Would Rather Talk About Their Sex Life Than Their Finances

I was brought up to believe you never spend more than you have (ok dipping into my dad’s wallet sometimes helped!)  I learned to save and make pretty good choices all things considered. Then I met my husband and from the time we started dating until the time we divorced, I allowed myself to make decisions that were NOT in the best interest of myself, nor my family.

Self-Care Your Space: Spring Decor On A Budget

It’s finally April this week! That means spring is here! After a long and freezing winter, still in a global pandemic, I think we’re all ready for a little sunshine.

I love spring. Don’t you just love putting on your brighter colored clothing and wearing heels instead of winter boots? I know I’m ready.

I feel the exact same way about home décor! We spend the winter months sitting on the couch and always seem to have cozy blankets close by. These blankets, as well as other home accessories tend be darker colored and more subdued in their feel. Spring is the time to freshen your home and add some color! It is the ultimate act of self-love and self-care when you can create a home that creates joy. These changes don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. There are many things you can do to refresh your space on a budget.

Change is Inevitable. Growth Is Optional.

Change… it’s the only constant.

We can fight it, we can try to avoid it, but change happens.

Change can be really hard. We as a people, are not by nature, adaptive to change. Why? Change means ‘new.’ Change involves the unknown. Change means breaking comfortable patterns. Change involves going outside our comfort zone. We can fight change, we can try to avoid it, but change happens. And while change can come as a huge relief if we’ve just moved past a bad chapter in our lives, change can also be very scary. It involves tremendous risk, and can really tickle our insecurities.

But here’s what’s true– you make the choice about how you’re going to respond to change. You hold the power. On this #MotivationMonday, understand that change welcomes in a wonderful sense of freedom.

Tory Burch’s quote above applies to business, true, but it also applies to marriage, parenting, or just LIFE. When we sit complacent on the fence paralyzed by fear of change, life will just pass us by.

10 Superfoods To Incorporate Into Your 2022 Diet For Well-Being

Hello! Reporting live from C2! An incredible conference in my hometown of Montreal. I am about to hear Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple speak. I’m excited.

Seeing that summer is around the corner, and knowing that my goal as a certified life coach (and now yoga teacher in training) is to always get you as close to your personal best as possible, today I wanted to share 10 Superfoods of 2017 that you should be incorporating into your diet. Many of these superfoods have helped keep me in good health. Today, we’re getting off the fence, off the junk, and caring for ourselves. Consider this your whack over the head with the frying pan (pardon the irony). It’s May. May is about rebirth, rejuvenation, and regrowth. So, if you’ve been a bad girl, give yourself permission to own that… and then let it go. I’m doing that too.

It’s NO-vember and No Is A Complete Sentence

And when I say, “no thank you right now is, ” it doesn’t mean I won’t be interested in a couple of weeks, months, or next year. It means for today. And when I keep the door open, I feel good about that. I read somewhere once that “SAYING NO TO SOMEONE, IS SAYING YES TO YOURSELF.” Just let that soak in. It’s really true. Saying no to someone else, means saying yes to yourself. It means freeing yourself up to do more of the things you love… read a book, go for a walk, take a painting class. Whatever.

5 Fall Cleansing Foods

I know it’s trite but I’m going to say it anyway. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the chilled smell in the air, seeing the leaves change and eating my weight in apples smothered with almond butter.

It can also be a time of intense overwhelm– throw in a global pandemic, and you’ve got yourself quite the fall 2021! Combining the feeding frenzy that starts at Halloween and blazes on until the new year and you are destined to feel like a stuffed turkey who’s seen better days. With everything we put on our plates during Fall, literally and figuratively, it is no wonder we beg for green juice and a rest come January.

The One Thought That Could Change Your Life

I came across this quote a few years ago in an email and I have to say, it changed me. Just imagine. Think about this concept. You are one choice away from changing your entire life’s direction. ONE CHOICE. If you reflect upon your life, you’ve come to where you are through a series of choices, no doubt. But each one of our long and windy paths started with one choice. A single choice. And if this concept seems too abstract, let me give you an example… You are on a business trip, sitting at the bar in a strange country. A man propositions you to go up to his room. Your answer at that moment, that yes or no, that ONE CHOICE, could change your life.
