10 Simple Ways to Bring Joy Into Your Day

When I start to get pulled in by negative self-talk or stress, I find it incredibly helpful to do an activity that brings me joy. While at times this might mean doing something relaxing for an hour, typically it’s something that takes less than 15 minutes. Productivity is important, but when stress starts to get the better of me, the best thing I can do for my productivity is to step away for at least…

Certified B Corporation: What Does That Even Mean?

If you’re already a conscious and/or sustainable consumer, you’ve undoubtedly bought from brands or companies with the encircled B logo. This little black B notes a brand as being a certified B corporation. Often, this notation is nestled alongside other environmental and health forward certifications such as certified vegan, cruelty-free, fair trade or organic. But have you ever stopped and wondered, what the heck is a B Corporation? Up until a few months ago I…

Friday Favorites – 06.22.18

Ah yes, I did in fact skip last week’s edition of the Friday favorites as I was quite busy packing for Long Island. As I mentioned in the first of these, they may not happen every week because #reallife! This week’s favorites are in line with how I’ve been feeling lately: bright and simple. A strange combination of adjectives, however incredibly accurate. I’m not sure if it’s the 17 hours of day light we have…

Golden Pineapple + Herb Smoothie

I went through a phase where I literally drank a smoothie every single day, and thus it left me feeling like I’d never want a smoothie again. Slowly, however, my smoothie taste buds are returning; and at the right time I’d say because as it gets warmer smoothies are often my breakfast of choice — with a couple of hardboiled eggs — or my favorite post workout snack. A long standing struggle with smoothie making…

Friday Favorites – 06.08.18

Hey, friends! Another week is coming to an end and with that I bring you 3 more favorites. Barre 3 Online I’ve mentioned this activity before in an old post, but it’s definitely worth mentioning again. Over the past year, I’ve really come to love lower impact strength workouts, and Barre 3 definitely fits that bill. We have some classes in our town, but they often conflict with my work schedule. Thus, I have absolutely…

Food Spotlight: Eggs

Eggs are easily my favorite breakfast food. On a very rare occasion I will temporarily lose my taste for them for a week or so, but 9/10 I’m picking eggs for breakfast over something sweet. They leave me feeling full and satisfied all morning, and energized for my morning walk/workout and tasks. They are also incredibly versatile, going well with so many different types of sides or toppings. Eggs got a bad rap for a…
