What is Self Care?

We live in a day and age where we are ALWAYS on the go. Rushing around from point A to point B. Burnout is on a rise, and doing more is considered a badge of honor. Rarely do you meet people who have “free” time or lack of schedules. Here’s the problem with that- if you overcommit, and are in a constant state of rushing around from activities, meetings, chores- then you’re blood pressure tends to be higher, which elevates your cortisol levels, which slows your metabolism, affects your sleep, and causes a lot of other issues in our body. …

Guest Blogger: I’m Not a Natural Mom

We have a special treat for you today. Meet Rachel Harrell who runs The Naptime Projects , a blog dedicated to end the mom-shaming and helping moms take back their life one nap-time at a time. She enjoys building things from pallets, date nights with her husband, Chris, and playing with her baby boy, Will. I don’t love motherhood. I don’t adore being a stay at home mom.

Stop the “Complain Train”

Just fair warning, this may rub some of you the wrong way. There I said it, so you’ve been warned. So continue on if you don’t mind some feathers ruffled. I’ve had my fair share of “woe” is me moments throughout my life. Honestly, I spent most of my childhood, and a fair share of my adult life blaming someone else for all my problems.  Why I got less than average grads in college Why I worked so many hours for little pay Why I couldn’t seem to keep friends when life got rough Why my husband and I argued …

As if postpartum depression wasn’t bad enough, when I went back to work, I was faced with daily anxiety attacks. These were completely new to me and I had no idea what was happening at first. My chest would tighten, I couldn’t focus, my mind was popping around like a pinball machine, I would cry over random things, my head would hurt, and I felt like the walls were closing in. After a week of single parenting, working full time with an hour commute on each end, and these anxiety attacks, I HAD to get a handle on this. There …

Your Missing Link

I can attribute one single thing to the success of my health and fitness journey. The one thing that kept me from yoyoing, from starting and stopping over and over again. That one thing is SO simple and yet so powerful. It wasn’t a workout routine, it wasn’t eating the right foods, it wasn’t counting calories or hitting the gym. This post may contain affiliate links- I earn a portion of the proceeds, but it costs you nothing on your end, it just helps me feed my family It was personal development. 10 minutes a day of diving into a …

I got maybe 30 minutes of “quality” time with my baby before having to put her …
