At face value, personal responsibility may seem like it has nothing to do with health and wellness.  However, in my work, I see this one factor pop up over and over.  For many individuals it can be a huge obstacle in accomplishing their goals - health, fitness, wellnes...

Not. Before I get pushback, hang in there with me.

In my work, one of the things that has stood out to me the most is the importance of self-love. In the past few years the self-love movement has gained a lot of traction. However despite this surge, I haven’t seen a huge change in the prevalence and understanding of...

My mom introduced me to essential oils when I was in high school, and I’ve been in love ever since. As a byproduct of them becoming a trend, they’re less expensive and more readily available - which is fantastic!

I often wake up in the mornings with awful headaches that have seemingly no cause. Sometimes they got better as the day goes on, and sometimes not. Even worse, ibuprofen, Advil, water, electrolytes, you name it - never help.


I’ve always been an anxious person, and hol...

We are officially halfway through January - so you’d think those resolutions would be in full swing, right? Nope. As of Friday, also known as “Quitter’s Day”, the majority of those who set resolutions have already begun to notice a falter in motivation, and many have q...

I LOVE the holidays.  The food, baking, decorations, spirit, weather, family-time, travel (sometimes)…it is so magical to me!  I am Jewish, so growing up, Christmas was always this kinda-mysterious but seriously awesome and envious event.  Regardless of being Jewish, w...

Along with the lovely crisp air, fun-filled holidays, and delicious seasonal foods, we also get cold and flu season.  There’s nothing more annoying than a pesky cold that just won’t go away fast enough.  In an ideal world, you’d get a nice long weekend to recover, but...

Trader Joe's is a fantastic place.  It's happy, it's inexpensive, it's fun, and they have some really awesome products.  

When I was living in Boston I did all of my shopping there, as it was a nice walk & the cheapest grocery option in my neighborhood.  Now that I...
