When's the Last Time Your Routine Has Changed?
Have you thought about what makes you grumpy recently? I have, thanks to something one of my clients pointed out recently. She said that she needs to build up a routine again, and it got me thinking about how that's the reason why some days I feel less happy than others... I didn't have a routine anymore! Today's episode talks about why a routine can help you feel better, and gives you advice on how to build a new weekly or daily schedule through the changing seasons in your life, both physical and metaphorical.

Busy Summer Ahead? Work on This to Keep your Diet in Check
I think we can all agree that summer is generally the busiest time of year for people. We have parties, vacations, long weekends, more chores to do around the house... Lots of things going on. Because of this, dinner can tend to become even more of an afterthought in the summer and when you're pressed for time, it's so much easier to rely on fast food, take out or pre-made meals. To improve your health this month, try figuring out some quick and easy summer meals that fit into your schedule and take minimal prep, that way you can rely on them without sacrificing your health, and so you can continue to take advantage of your summer!

Bootcamp Classes are NOT for Most People!
Today's episode is a bit of a rant honestly, specifically about my recent experience when taking a bootcamp style class. I really don't recommend bootcamp classes to anyone, but especially not for those with autoimmune issues or those people who are going through a lot of stress. Listen to today's episode to learn why I don't think they're a good fit for most people, but also learn how to make your workouts work FOR you, not against you.

How to Work Through Stress and Tune in to Your Heart (An Interview with Laura Ciampa)
On today's episode of the Podcast, I'm chatting with Laura Ciampa of Inspiring Essential Wellness about stress. Stress is a BIG part of my health journey so I was super excited to talk to her about this topic.

On today's episode, Laura shares her story and also gives us some techniques that she uses with her own clients so that you can work through your stress (and not just forget about it) and move on with your day feeling happier, loved and safe.
