A Discussion on Fear

A Discussion on Fear

September 16, 2020

Fear - and its effect on our bodies / minds - can be incredibly useful.

Overnight Oats for Beginners

September 09, 2020

We’ve all heard it a thousand times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you’re anything like me, breakfast consists of whatever you can grab and eat in less than five minutes.

Overnight oats are a great way to get the nutrients you need, and they are quick and easy to make too!

Maya Angelou once said, “If you don't know where you've come from, you don't know where you're going.” I would add that you also need to know where you currently are in order to move forward in a meaningful way.
