Welcome to Minding My Soul - aimed at inspiring you to find your own kind of happiness and wellness through practical holistic living, wholesome nourishment, intuitive exercise and enjoying all of the wonderful little things that life offers us.
Proper nourishment doesn’t need to be time consuming or complicated. At Minding My Soul I strive to create recipes that can easily be recreated, whether you’re a seasoned cook or just learning how to use the kitchen. Though some dishes include dairy and wheat, I do like to feature recipes that are allergen free and can also be enjoyed by those with dietary restrictions.
The idea of holistic living can seem daunting or “out there” to many. Trust me, I’ve been in those shoes! But really, to live holistically simply means you’re accounting for and taking care of your mind, body and spirit as a whole. You partner with your body and your soul to nourish it in ways beyond diet and exercise. Here you can find practical and accessible ways to take care of your emotional and mental health to find mind body alignment.
- My Philosophy -
Listen to Your body. I’m sure you’ve heard that before. I used to recite this to myself often, and thought it just meant modifying my workout if my knee was hurting, or that I should avoid (insert food) because it bothered my stomach once. But then, as I searched for explanations as to way I still wasn’t feeling my best, I realized that diet and exercise we’re not the only pieces to the puzzle. We are more than just bodies, we have souls, and I started to understand that it was my soul too that needed nourishment. It craved hobbies, love, meditation and reflection. Our bodies need whole food nourishment, but our souls need us to not obsess over our food choices. Our bodies need exercise, but our souls need us to move those bodies from a mindset of compassion and self-love. To honor these internal requests, is to honor your self — to mind your soul. When you make a decision in the name of wellness, ask your self: is this nourishing both my body and my soul?
