When I found out Whole Foods Market 365 was coming to my neighborhood, my entire being lit up with JOY. I’ll be the first to admit that a large part of my happiness stems from having access to a healthy and affordable grocery store nearby. When I moved to another part of Brooklyn, I gave up the convenience of my neighborhood Whole Foods, which was a challenge for me. I’m SO happy with the new 365 Market – I love how it is more affordable, and yet I still have access to the brands I love like Kite Hill and Kombrewcha.
Photos by Candace Molatore + Outfits courtesy of Beyond Yoga Hi friends! I’m very excited to share that I partnered with the one and only Kait Hurley on a Feel the Love Movement + Meditation Flow! Kait and I met in Arizona last year at MindBodyGreen’s REVITALIZE, and since then, we’ve become fast friends. She’s one of the sweetest and most loving people I know with such a fire for what she does. She’s really the whole package, and someone I deeply admire. I love Kait’s approach to combining movement with meditation, because it makes meditation much easier after working up a sweat. Meditation helps give your body deep rest to recover, so after you workout, you are less antsy and it’s easier to sit.
By the end of March, I will have flown in and out of 5 different cities in a span of 2 months! That’s the most back-to-back travel I’ve ever done in such a short span of time. While traveling is exciting, it can take a toll on your body if you’re not careful. Especially if you’re flying, you’re more prone to catching a virus since you’re trapped in a metal tube of canned air that’s definitely chilling with germs and bacteria. I’m doing everything I can to stay healthy, so here’s what has been working for me SO FAR!
Introspection and self-reflection… it’s an art, and we all could use more of it. Let me ask you: Does your brain feel cluttered? Do you often feel as though your days are spent trying to keep your head above water? The good news is you’re not alone. However, it’s time to make changes. Being swamped is not something to take pride in. Let’s create space for self-reflection, so we can examine our own internal thoughts and dissect what they mean and how they make us feel.
I’m writing this for myself as much as I am writing this for you guys! Managing your time when you work from home can be quite daunting, and it has been a much-requested blog topic from you guys. Let me preface by saying, I have not yet mastered this art of time-management. But, I’m learning tools to help me get there, and I’m happy to share what I’ve learned so far. First of all, being busy and being productive are two completely different things.
The Best of 2017: Becoming my own boss, traveling to far places, and celebrating 4 years of bloggingCareer + Blogging/Wellness + Lifestyle
I’ve sat down to write this blog post SO many times in the past 72 hours, and I can’t seem to find the words. I guess that’s the best way for me to describe 2017… it has been quite an indescribable and pivotal year. Next week marks my one year anniversary since quitting the 9-5 grind to be my own boss. Of course, I was nervous not knowing how this would pan out, but I weirdly felt a sense of calm and comfort in my ‘risky’ decision. Looking back, that was my gut telling me everything would be alright if I just let go. Since then, life has kind of felt like I’ve been hitting all of the boost pads in Mario Kart.
