My Journey in Self-Care

I talk about how September is our last month to ourselves. Where we aren’t pulled in all the directions, to do all the things, and be with all the people. September is also our goodbye to summer and hello to fall, paddle boards are put away and boats get winterized while pumpkin spice and football peak around the corner to …

Resolutions – A Loaded Word

Resolutions…What a loaded word! Show of hands of people who started a 2019 New Year’s Resolution and has already gave up? Show of hands of people who started a 2019 New Year’s Resolution and is still going strong? Show of hands of people who decided Resolutions are not for them?

I am a Warrior

Being a chiropractor, I talk to clients about how their body moves and how to listen to their body when it whispers instead of when it screams.

Mornings are hard

“I’m just going to hit snooze one more time.” Does that sound like you? It sounds like me. Mornings are not the favorite part of the day for me. I have tried to make a routine in the morning so I can stay on task and not find myself sitting on my bed for 10 minutes scrolling through Facebook and …

Get out of the Negative Funk!

I must admit that writing a blog about gratitude is the last thing I want to do right now. I know that this is also helping me to realize all the goods that I have in my life and the wonderful things that this world has to offer. That still doesn’t mean I want to do this. My husband and …

Staying Physical in a Sedentary World

We live in a sedentary world. We sit in a car while we drive to work. Some of us then sit down at our desk. When our work day is done we go back to sit in our car and in traffic before we get home. It’s just a lot of sitting! We can do little things throughout the day …
