What’s your purpose? Does that question make you cringe? Honestly, I think that when the idea of finding purpose comes up many of us start to sweat and wonder if we measure up.

But what if things could be different? What if our purpose isn’t really what we’ve been led to believe? What if it comes from a completely different place?
If the idea of finding your purpose makes you cringe… if you’re feeling like you’ll never find it, or if you’ve recently lost your way, this post is for you <3.
What’s the key to a healthy lifestyle? The most important thing that you need to really bring everything together? Is it a healthy diet? Tons of exercise? A good night’s sleep? Heck no! (Even though those are all pretty freaking important.) It’s all about the self love baby! And self acceptance is a pretty big part of that.

Let’s talk about what mindfulness meditation is, how it works and how you can take advantage of all it has to offer:
Looking for a fantastic way to exercise – look no further, because a jump rope workout is amazing!
If your childhood was anything like mine, you probably spent a lot of time running around with a jump rope! It was such a great way to play. And, my favourite part, it was a wonderful way to pass the time solo and with a group of friends. We’re talking double dutch baby!
But somehow that all fell to the way side when I grew up. And I imagine I’m not alone! But it turns out that skipping is more than just a fun game to play as a kid… it’s actually a really powerful (and still really freaking fun) way to exercise.
Here’s why you and I should totally start doing a jump rope workout:
We love superfoods! These healthy food options are everywhere. Google the word superfoods and you will find tons of lists boasting nutritionally dense foodie superstars and how to add them to your diet.
But what if some of them aren’t as super as they seem? What if a few of the most popular superfoods out there come with some downsides that aren’t as well known? Sometimes if it sounds too good to be true… well, you know how that saying goes.
So, at the risk of bursting your bubble (sorry)…

This time five years ago I was trying to absorb the fact that I have Graves Disease, an incurable, but thankfully treatable, autoimmune disease.
