New Friends bring New Energy to your Soul!

One of my greatest highlights of 2019 are the new friendships I’ve made this year, including this one.

Meet my friend Nicole, who I met in February at an event and we instantly hit it off. Both have a love for fitness, wellness, and inspiring others to live their best lives.

She introduced me to a nutrition and wellness company that has enhanced my health, and she has also been a great inspiration to me.

It’s so important to build a strong, supportive network of friendship who cheer you on and hold you accountable in you achieving your dreams and sustaining a healthy lifestyle. 


3 Clever Ways to STOP Comparing Yourself to Others.


What do you bring to the table?

You know, all of those unique qualities and talents that set you apart from the billions of people on this entire planet.  

In this day and age it’s so easy to get caught up in the “comparison mode” of who and what everyone else is doing and easily get frustrated with ourselves feeling like we should be at a certain point in our lives.

Yeah, I’ve gotten caught up in the hype at times, but haven’t we all? There’s really no benefit in comparing ourselves to others, it discounts the person we are.

Like anything worth achieving it takes practice, and patience, and at times I still do get caught up in the hype I have learned to overcome it remembering all the amazing qualities I bring to the table.

Now I want to encourage you to do the same. Here are 3 Ways to stop comparing yourself to others:

Turn Comparison > Motivation

Whenever you see someone doing well, instead of judging and becoming jealous use it as the fuel to motivate you to achieve your goals. Develop the “if they can do it, so can I” mentality.

Love it and List it

One of my mentors mentioned writing a list of our qualities, achievements, and things we love about ourselves. When we get down it’s a great reference tool, a good kick in the ass reminder of what a badass we are.

Remember Beauty’s only Skin Deep

Just because someone’s life may be portrayed and outlined as this picture perfect image especially with social media, doesn’t mean they don’t go through the challenges life presents. We all have shit to deal with.

So now it’s your turn..share with me at least 3 things you bring to the table.

3 Clever Ways to Beat the Winter Blues


We’re right smack in the middle of the winter and spring fever has been in the air pretty much since the beginning of the season. Though I personally have enjoyed the winter (go ahead call me crazy), the anticipation builds for the warmer, sunnier months ahead has set in and I am sharing 3 easy tips to get through the winter blues and prepare for the spring season.

1. Spring Clean.

Feeling cranky?  Overwhelmed? Take a look around. Are you surrounded by too much clutter? Well it’s time to spring clean.

Cortisol, which is a stress hormone releases when your environment is surrounded with clutter, hence causing unhealthy stress and overwhelm.  Get organized by eliminating people and material things that no longer serve you. It leaves room to receive new in your life and brings a sense of peace and ease to your mental and emotional well-being.

2. Add a Touch of Color

It's proven that different colors contain special healing properties such as altering our moods and emotions.  Add a pop of color to your clothing, office space, home, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables with a variety of color to get essential vitamins and minerals during these gray, colder days.

3. Get Some Good "D"

With limited amounts of time spent outdoors and a reduction of exposure to natural sunlight in the winter, it's important to get enough vitamin D.  Every cell in your body needs light to survive and grow. There's a number of foods that contain Vitamin D including egg yolks, mushrooms, fortified milk, fatty fish, and certain supplements.  

What steps are you taking to get ready for spring?
