How to Avoid Yoga Injuries

I’ve lost count of the amount of people and times I’ve heard comments about Yoga such as: “It’s just stretching, how hard can that be?” or “Yoga isn’t a workout, it’s too slow”. Despite what some people may think, the practice of Yoga can be very physically demanding (not to mention the internal focus and […]

Cut the Keto NOT the Carbs!

Unless your doctor or a healthcare professional has told you that you have to eliminate carbohydrates from your diet due to a health condition… there is no reason why you should be cutting this food group out if your goal is weight loss.

5 Yoga Poses for Beginners

Contrary to common belief, I’m not against losing weight. In fact, weight loss was a big part of my own wellness journey. But if you follow me on social media, I can understand why you may think weight loss is such a bug bare for me because I do tend to promote health over aesthetics. […]

Movement Motivation – Love to Move

One of the most asked questions I get on social media, from friends and from family is: “How do you stay motivated to workout every day?” Let me start by telling you that it didn’t come naturally or easily to me whatsoever. If you have been following my journey on social media, you already know […]

Daily Journaling – How to Form Lasting Habits
