Scary Things

I used to hate scary things. Not scary movies or books (like Helter Skelter, that one messed with me for a while), but things that took me outside of my comfort zone. Scary things like quitting my job, starting my own private practice, writing blogs, buying a house, having a baby. Have you ever heardContinue reading “Scary Things”

A Not So Great Start

I knew there was a reason I wanted to devote an entire month to focusing on feeding and loving my body well… because it’s tough! We are not off to a great start. I’m going to be kind to myself because of my four month old. Something about cute babies and sleep deprivation makes meContinue reading “A Not So Great Start”

Your Brain on Books

Growing up, I can remember teachers and my parents telling me to turn off the TV and go read because it was “good for me”. Turns out they were right. I have been reading several articles about the effects that reading has on your brain. Here are some take-aways that I have found through myContinue reading “Your Brain on Books”

A Book A Day Keeps the Nightmares Away

Happy Monday! I am excited for this week’s resolution: read a book a month. I went to the library this weekend to pick out the perfect book for this month. I actually picked out a book that will help me get ready for Week 4’s Resolution: meditation/spirituality/religion. Like I mentioned in a previous post, (ScreenContinue reading “A Book A Day Keeps the Nightmares Away”

Journal and Beyond

Well, the first week of my Growth Project is coming to a close. This month’s theme is challenges of “The Mind”, which is why I chose to do a 1 sentence journal. I wanted the challenge of sticking to a daily habit. The journal provided me with that accomplishment (so far) but it also taughtContinue reading “Journal and Beyond”
