Don’t Throw Away Your Thanksgiving Turkey Bones!

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. There’s no stressful holiday shopping – just plain and simple gratitude – and I’m here for it. You’ve got to love a holiday that’s centered around eating lots of amazing food, elastic pants, loved ones, football……and...

Stop Ghosting Yourself

Self-care has always been a challenge for me. As a highly empathic person with a Type A personality, I’ve always been able to intuit other people’s feelings and needs easily, and usually end up wanting to jump in and help (read: take over). Not only would I give you...

Meditation As Medication

Make Shift Happen

Finding Gratitude in the Face of Illness
