This is especially true when we depart ways with the beloved Christmas trees. In this post, I share some green ways to help the environment post-holiday using the holiday arbol-icon.

The reality is that most companies are filled with people who are genuinely unhappy and are suffering with health issues as well. The best news is that even though we can’t change the people we work with, we have the free will to change our perception about the situation.
Does the Food Hangover exist? Yes it does! You may call it something else but most people are well aware of the typical side effects: tiredness, bloating, upset stomach, with an emphasis on feeling like crap.

Before you make a beeline to the medicine cabinet and reach in for the Pepto Bismol, here are some things to consider so that you can make a speedy recovery after a food hangover.
What happens when you on the other side of the Secret Santa exchange and you need to choose the best gift for someone? The secret to gift-giving someone with the damn near perfect gift is to uncover what they would like. One key thing to avoid is assumption- assuming that a person would like a gift because you like it. In other words, don’t give your co-worker a makeup palette from Sephora. You might think the color choices are trendy but she may not appreciate it especially if eye shadows are not her thing. In this post, I share a few ideas to take the guesswork away as you continue your gift hunting experience before the holidays.

Cleaning is not just limited to Spring! In fact, I highly recommend a seasonal cleaning routine that clears up the stagnant energy and cleanses your sacred space.

It is estimated that 16 million Americans suffer with depression. It is so common and unfortunately, heavily treated and overused with a massive selection of medications.

In this post, I share the top 15 sites and apps that you can use today to earn commissions and/or royalties on your photography.
With the holidays coming up, flying across the country to meet and spend time with family is inevitable. Many people would love to opt to fly in cheap and who wouldn’t mind saving money on that, right? But, with cheap flights mean you might have to contend with long layovers, especially overnight hours. This predisposes the average traveler to spend money on a hotel room for the comfort which at times can be understandable. But since this is an unconventional wellness blog, I share another suggestion that involves the shameless act of sleeping at the ‘port and the essentials you need to get through it.
Having the mindset of a survivalist on some level ensures that you are prepared for catastrophe no matter what. You can rig things from the ordinary items you would have not used in the first place! I compiled a list of six of those items for the modern survivalist who is interested in strategic tactics and preparation that costs little to nothing. Most of the items serve many roles and can be applied to a multitude of tasks with a little imagination. In fact, you do not necessarily need a post-apocalyptic event to use it on an ordinary day! The best part is that I research the items on Amazon and discovered that all six items cost well under $40!
Did you know that over 400 million tons of plastic are globally made each year? What is more, one-third of that plastic waste ends up in our freshwaters and soils.

Microplastics are becoming more widespread as they are making their way into things we use on a daily basis: bottled water, honey, salt, toothpastes and hand sanitizers to name quite a few.

If your coach is demonstrating any of these characteristics, it is time to let them go now.
