Thanksgiving Gratitude

This one is going to be super short… Today, I want you to ask yourself this one little question: What am I grateful for? Write it down, make a list, and post it somewhere in your house where you can see it each and every day. Carry this grateful feeling into the rest of your…

Mercury is in Retrograde Again…Just in Time for Thanksgiving

Fuck, man. I’m no astrologer, but 2018 has been an absolute doozy when it comes to retrogrades. Venus was just in retrograde earlier this month and, you guessed it, good ol’ Mercury is back at it again. I’ve already given you the low-down about surviving Mercury in retrograde, but the stakes are a hell of…

How To Prevent Daylight Savings From Ruining Your Life

For a very (and I meanΒ very) brief moment, I was ecstatic about falling back an hour for daylight savings. We had just invited our new puppy into the family and the idea of getting an extra hour of sleep seemed almost too luxurious. As I basked in the nearly 7 hours I got thanks to…

I Was a Zen Yogi…Until I Got a Puppy

I used to be such a calm, contemplative person. Well, at least ever since I left the law. I would meditate every day, sometimes in the morning and before bed. I used to eat well and go to yoga classes. I calmly recited my favorite passages from the Yamas and frequently ran my words through…

My Favorite Holistic Winter Bug Remedies

Well, it’s officially that time of the year. No, I’m not talking about Halloween (although that awesomeness is also only a few days away!)…nope, I’m talking about the dreaded winter bug season. Maybe it’s because I’m more of a warm weather, summertime gal or because my sweater collection isn’t nearly as cute as my closet…

My Favorite Yoga, Meditation & Spirituality Books

I’m an avid reader. Truthfully, there is nothing I love more than curling up with a good book on a rainy day (or any other kind of day, for that matter). I’m often asked about some of my favorite yoga, meditation and/or spirituality books, so I figured it was about time I shared! These books…

Transitioning into Autumn

As the temperatures begin to drop, I always find myself in such a contemplative space. Each fall, it’s almost as if I too prepare for a winter of hibernation…a time of self-reflection and cozy sweaters, a season of complete stillness. Maybe I’m just a sucker for a bit of fall foliage, but I can’t help…

Stepping Outside of Your Comfort Zone

I am a writer. Always have been, always will be. Writing comes pretty easily to me and, in many ways, has been a cornerstone and defining aspect of my personality for the better part of a decade. So…why a start podcast? It’s pretty simple really: to step outside of my comfort zone. Deciding to take…

Tools for Survivors During the Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings

Warning: this article contains language concerning sexual assault, rape and sexual abuse, which may be triggering. It’s 3:30 a.m. on a Friday night and I’m wide awake. No, it’s not because I had an especially raucous evening of dancing and drinking or even because I was up late binge-watching the latest show on Netflix; nope,…

Practicing Mindfulness in the Digital Age

If you’re reading this blog post right now, chances are you’re one of the whopping 2.5 billion people around the world that are tethered to a smart phone. And look, I’m not here to judge. Just like you, I’ve also fallen victim to the addictiveness of apps, emails, and social media since I purchased my…
