7 Ways to Have a Better Day

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had some ROUGH days lately. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I’ve had some really good days too. But it just seems like the bad ones have happening way too often. And I’m pretty sick of it. I know they say that “happiness is a choice”, but … Read More

Not-So-Simple Sobriety: Part Two

I want to start Part Two of my sobriety series reiterating what I said at the beginning of Part One. These posts are in no way meant to make you feel bad or guilty for drinking. They are not intended to convince you to quit drinking. My goal with these posts is simply to discuss … Read More

Not-So-Simple Sobriety: Part One

Not-So-Simple Sobriety: Part One

So I want to preface this two-post Sobriety Series by saying I have absolutely NO issue with people drinking. If you choose to consume alcohol or if you choose sobriety, that’s up to you.

Book Review: You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero

I’ve set an intention this year to read more. Read literally anything as long as it’s in book form. I’ve always loved reading but lost the motivation to do so during my career as a student. I felt like I never had time, or, when I did have time, I just wanted to do something … Read More

An Adaptogen Update: My Experience (So Far) with Three Medicinal Mushrooms

I have received a ton of questions lately about the adaptogens I use. From people who aren’t even remotely aware of adaptogens, the questions are usually along the lines of, “You put WHAT in your drink?” For those who are familiar with them but skeptical, the question is usually, “Are you actually noticing a difference?” … Read More

Adaptogenic Walnut Brain Balls

Adaptogenic Walnut Brain Balls

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, back in October I moved to a small walnut farm. We have 57 producing walnut trees, though some are much more productive than others.
