How to Get Out of a Funk (in 30 Minutes or Less!)

March 08, 2021

We’ve all been there: stuck in that uncomfortable and undesirable space of a “funk”. Feeling sad or down; lacking motivation; feeling generally tired or unenthused -- all of these things can be hard to shake once we’re in them. However, with some persistence and intention, we CAN shake that funk off and move forward feeling far more like our usual selves. Check out the ideas below - separated out by timeframes - for some inspiration.

So You’re Ready to Try Meditating

So You’re Ready to Try Meditating

February 08, 2021

Meditation has been around since the beginning of time, but has come and gone in terms of popularity. Presently, it’s incredibly popular. You can join meditation kulas (groups) online; download apps to track and guide your meditations; and learn about meditation from IG influencers, podcasts (like this one recently made by yours truly!), and even from brochures handed out by the wellness committee at work. Odds are, someone you know resolved to meditate as part of their New Year’s resolution. All of which begs the question - what is meditation?

The Vagus Nerve: What It Is & Why You Should Care About It

The Vagus Nerve: What It Is & Why You Should Care About It

January 11, 2021

Running from the brain all the way down through the abdomen, the vagus nerve is the longest and most complex cranial nerve. In fact, because it is so interwoven throughout our bodily systems, we can credit our mind-body connection to this nerve. It ultimately interacts with the parasympathetic (rest & digest) nervous system to control the heart, lungs, and digestive tract. The vagus nerve also plays a big role in the immune system as well as how we experience and recover from stress. All of that being said, it clearly has a big impact on how we feel and function.

January 04, 2021

Decision fatigue, Zoom fatigue, and plain old tiredness have been PROMINENT in our society lately. And what better tell of our “go go go” society than the language surrounding exhaustion which often urges people to “fight” or “combat” exhaustion -- as if they have the energy to do so!

Creating Your Yoga Space

Creating Your Yoga Space

December 16, 2020

We all know the power of stepping into a well-curated yoga studio -- the instant relaxation that comes from gurgling water features, recently burnt palo santo, and the light, earthy color schemes. We all also know, however, that stepping into a studio is not often an option these days. With so many studios closed due to COVID, yogis are having to practice from home now more than ever. So how can we bring some of the studio aesthetic into our homes to further our practice through all of our senses?

Money-less Gift Giving for This Holiday Season

November 30, 2020

I don’t know about you, but lately every store I walk into is playing holiday music of some sort. And while the sounds of the season initially bring a smile to my face, it’s quickly followed by a feeling of dread as I think of all the gifts I need to organize. In other years my budget for gifts might be a bit larger, but this year has been a tough one for many of us. With that in mind, I’ve decided to compile a list of ideas that allow you to give meaningful gifts, while also keeping to a comfortable budget.

Depending on your specific interests, you may enjoy some of the podcasts below:

Mindful Consumption -- It's Not Just for Food!

Mindful Consumption -- It's Not Just for Food!

November 10, 2020

We’ve all heard the old adage that “you are what you eat.” And while there is merit in this saying - that is, what we eat does largely affect us - it isn’t quite comprehensive enough to fully describe how we are impacted by that which we consume. Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh once said, “We are what we consume. If we look deeply into the items that we consume every day, we will come to know our own nature very well.” It is with this quote in mind that we can begin to examine what we consume - through all of our senses, not just our meals - in order to see how each item affects us.

November 10, 2020

It's time to say goodbye to the warm weather and embrace the winter winds of change. The excitement of fall fades as the cold winter nights creep closer. Now don’t get me wrong, those first couple of snowfalls are magical and exciting, but the short days and lack of sunlight can really take a toll on your mental health. It’s a good idea to start getting into healthy habits now while the thrill of fall is still in full swing. I have listed a few tips that I found have helped get me through those last few winter months after the holiday buzz is gone and passed.

Pick 3: Give Your Interests the Energy They Deserve

Pick 3: Give Your Interests the Energy They Deserve

November 09, 2020

Curiosity is a double edged sword. On one hand, it leads to new hobbies, interests, and experiences. On the other, it can leave a person spread so thin that they’re unable to have any sort of meaningful engagement with what they’re doing. I know I personally get sucked into this conundrum all the time; I try something new and love it so much I decide I want to pursue it more fully. But in order to do so, I need to give up time doing something else...and thus the balancing act begins. Before long, I find myself engaging in a hobby over a span of minutes instead of hours so that I can fit all my activities in. The result? I remain on the surface level across all the activities.

It is with this in mind that I share with you the “Pick 3” mentality. As the name implies, this mentality asks that you choose just 3 things to prioritize for a period of time.

DIY Dry Shampoo

DIY Dry Shampoo

November 09, 2020

Putting time and effort into the way my hair looks has never been my forte. My go-to styling technique is throwing my hair into a braid overnight for loose waves the next day. I own a hair dryer, straightener, and curler, but probably only use them twice a year. So it’s really no surprise that I would rather throw some dry shampoo in than wash my hair every day. My excessive use of the classic dry shampoo spray from Target started to really break my bank, so I did a little research and started to make my own. It turned out to not only be cheaper, but healthier for my hair and better for the environment! Plus, you really only need two ingredients that you could probably find in your baking cupboard right now!
