Establishing your Personal Mindfulness Practice

I have been wanting to write a piece on meditation and mindfulness for a while now. And yet, there are two reasons I haven’t done so:

Meditation is a personal and often sacred practice- making it hard for me to voice my opinion on the matter without affecting people’s feelings, stressing them out and/or offending them.
A lot has been written about the benefits of mindfulness, as well as people’s personal experiences and practices. However, I do not really see the point in following someone’s exact mindfulness practice.

Pursuing Health vs. Good Looks

It seems that, for many, striving to be healthy and striving for ‘good looks’ have become synonymous. Of course, we are often told that good health will inevitably lead to an improved physical appearance, which in and of itself is probably true (to a certain extent).

Bittersweet Mornings

As I was listening to one of the Man Repeller’s ‘Monocycle’ podcasts on vulnerability I realized how very applicable her advice is to everyday life.

Whether they want to be or not, nearly every food or fitness blogger-myself included- is influenced by their own opinions and preferences. Everyone has their own idea of which foods one should or should not be consuming, how many times a week one should be working out and at what time one should be going to bed.

Be True. Be You. Be Kind.

This will not be a very long post, I just wanted to get you to reflect for a while. It seems that with anything we do in life, we want to please as many people as possible. Now, you might tell me there is no one in particular you want to please, which is probably true, but most of us still want to show others that we conform to a sort of, for lack of a better word, ideal.

Don’t Turn your ‘Healthy’ Lifestyle into an Obsession

It is the New Year. I am sure you are aware of this, as it is everything anyone seems to be talking about: #2016 #TheYearIAmGoingToGetFitAndHealthy. We are only six days into the New Year and I have already seen nearly a hundred posts saying everyone should go for a jog right now or stop eating pasta forever before we would be too far into the year.

Mindful Eating

It seems that most of us are constantly focusing on the diets or foods that will help us feel better, look better or lose weight instead of the way we feel during and after having eaten certain foods.
