Accessibility, Privilege, and the Wellness Community
I’ve been thinking a lot the last couple days about privilege, accessibility, and the wellness community.
I think there are two very valid and real sides to this story, and I think the first step to greater understanding is more discussion and openness so that both sides can see the validity of the other side, do what they can to help the other side, and also so we can see each other as HUMAN.
Tracking Mental/Emotional Progress - Why I have clients journal about their bodies!
One of the best ways to get into meditation if you’re new to it! We’ve all heard someone tell us to count to 10 before we make a brash decision out of anger, and these two exercises are just the grown up and mindful version of that advice.

Resources for Moving Towards at Zero-Waste Lifestyle
One of my recent goals has been to work towards a zero-waste lifestyle by refusing certain disposable goods, choosing to bring my own reusable items when possible, and finding more sustainable and long-lasting goods to purchase.
