My Lifesaver: FitOrganix

My Lifesaver: FitOrganix

Recently I was forced to assess my workload and come up with solutions to always feeling behind. Sometimes we have to restrict or scale down some passionate intent, when it can (over time) develop into wildfire. I don’t know a soul who’s never gotten carried away by something (or someone) they love. Organization is the ultimate key to success, no matter what one seeks efficiency in. Both lifestyle and business can see a complete nosedive or burnout with a lack of organization, OR, a well-fueled and completely sustainable strong machine, with its appropriate application. Sustainability is as important a concept to pay mind to in life as it is in our food. The...

How Physical Strength Leads to Mental Strength

How Physical Strength Leads to Mental Strength

Almost every post that I write is inspired by something a client mentions, asks me, or is going through. They are the inspiration that keeps my blood churning and brain feeling oxygenated, much like a solid workout would do. They keep me motivated and full of adrenaline toward my work. This post is no different – it is specifically derived from a recent conversation with a client. Recently I was discussing troubled times, and how vital it is to continue to push, physically, through them. When life becomes problematic, stressful or chaotic, sometimes our first inclination is to drop exercise and submit to a paralytic position, enduring the chaos while on edge...

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

Well, I’m sitting here in Costa Rica with some pretty red shoulders (and, a pretty patterned body overall). Conveniently, I saw a post on Instagram by the knowledgeable, practical and widely respected Megan Telpner on sun protection and vitamin D. It was info she was sharing from Living Libations. (I highly recommend following Megan on instagram for tons of tips: @MeganTelpner). My father and I have often argued about sunscreen. Yes, I believe that baking for hours and hours is a terrible idea. But, I also don’t love slathering myself in toxic sunscreen. What’s a girl to do? When you know your body, you can sort of tell how much time you’ll be...

The Burnout and Your Health

The Burnout and Your Health

Of course I’ve touched on this before. It’s a frequent and relevant circumstance for city dwellers, entrepreneurs, and hard workers in general. I may not seem like a very go-with-the-flow kind of girl, but the truth is I very much can be. The trouble comes when the flow features that which is too much, too fast and all at once. All of a sudden, you’re riding a wave that’s surpassing important details, and certainly riding right over restoration (let’s use sleep, for an example). The result can be chronic guilt, exhaustion and malaise. I can’t stress the importance of taking some time to put your wellness on the front burner, to...
