Weight Loss Drinks

Eat This Not That!  put out a list of various drinks and how they assist in weight loss and other impacts they have on the body.  They’re broken into categories and I am particularly interested in the teas, but there are plenty of interesting choices on the list for whatever preference you have.

Your Productivity Doesn’t Determine Your Worth

Healthline put out this really powerful article about value and productivity.  This has been something I certainly understand the value of, but as a to-do-list-maker I struggle to put it into practice in my own life.  I think the important thing to remember is that wellness is an ongoing process that you continually work on,…

Positive Dieting Mindset During Quarantine

The folks at Eat This Not That put out a great article, 7 Ways to Keep a Positive Dieting Mindset During Quarantine.  I love how the cornerstone of these tips are wellness, self-awareness, and self-compassion.  Prioritizing “health” during these uncertain times does not just mean social distancing and good hand hygiene to avoid sickness, but…

At Home Workouts

I’ve recently joked “people are going to come out of quarantine either gaining or losing 20 lbs” and from what friends and family are sharing with me so far, I think I’m on the money with that more than I initially thought.  While some people are taking this time as a snack-filled staycation, others are…

Breathing Exercises

I got this article in an email from Healthline.  Check out 8 Breathing Exercises to Try When You Feel Anxious.  #’s 1 and 3 are my preferred methods, and of course I also love Guided meditation, which I’ll make a separate article about in the future, I promise.

Behavior Charts

Over the last few months, I’ve grown my therapy practice to include a lot more work with children.  While some kids in therapy struggle with complex and daunting issues, many simple problems faced by families can be easily modified through the use of behavior charts.  Conflicts over things like doing chores or finishing homework can…

Great Sleep Hygiene

I focus on sleep a LOT (it’s one of my favorite activities!), but it’s something we spend about 1/3 of our lives doing, so making sure you get proper, restful sleep will play a really big role in your mood, stress response, and physical health.  I recently posted an article about what NOT to do…

Too Much Sugar!

We’re right in the thick of the holiday season–the first binge-eating holiday has passed, and we’re plummeted right into the most wonderful retail-rushing, Starbucks-grabbing, family-visiting, cookie-baking, holiday-partying, cocktail-downing time of the year.  I always have a killer sweet-tooth, but with all this holiday madness whirling around me (and it’s sweater season anyway, you can’t see…

50 Breakfast Habits Making You Gain Weight

I’m a little obsessed with Eat This, Not That! lately, and I love the lists of habits they put out–I become so much more aware and conscious of my routines when I read them. I had no idea that I was probably going a little overboard on fiber, or that a hand-full of nuts wasn’t…
