Endometriosis - Fast Facts

Did you know that 1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis? Did you also know that a lot of women don’t even know that they have endometriosis because it can only be diagnosed surgically? Did you know that having excruciating pain on your period is, in fact, not normal? This disease can be debilitating, it definitely was for me. I think it is important to know that there is a way to make the pain manageable and make this disease a non-debilitating one. Curious if you may have endo or, if you currently have endo, if some symptoms that you face are part of this disease or something separate? Here are some endo fast facts:

A Time of Reflection

This year for Christmas, I decided to not get lost in the season of forcing myself to think of gifts for every single person in my life that would likely go to waste and would definitely cause some much un-needed stress. Instead I decided to use this time as a time of reflection on my year before really sitting down and planning my moves for 2019.

“Don’t let your mind bully your body.”

This topic is something that I am very passionate about. So often we like to hold ourselves and our bodies to these impossible standards. What if we held ourselves to a standard of health instead of the “perfect American body” standard? What if we learned to love ourselves the way that we are (while keeping in mind that we are taking care of our bodies) because we know that everyone’s body and experience is different? What if we stopped shaming ourselves and shaming others for loving their body and not being ashamed of what they do?

Juice, Juice Baby

One way that I recommend to my clients to start improving their health from the start of our time together is to implement green juice into their daily routine. Why? Let’s start with the fun fact that it is a natural energy drink that is fueling your body through real food instead of relying solely on caffeine in multiple hits throughout the day. Why else?

Getting Out of the Phone Coma

Smart Phones… so good but oh so bad at the same time. Do you ever find yourself staring at social media only to look up to see that more time than anticipated has passed? It happens all to often with the constant access and mindless scrolling. Unfortunately, this can actually be bad for our health and we need to find ways to take breaks from our phone and be more mindful when we are on them.

Solitude. Solitaire.

Last Friday I posted about the importance of human touch and connection, so this week I want to touch on why it is important to get some alone time in as well. How often do you get alone time? Is it as often as you would like? Is it too often? If so, see The Magic of Human Touch. Either way, solitude can actually be a good reset for our minds and bodies which is extremely beneficial for mental, physical, and emotional health. Why?

The Magic of Human Touch

Recently I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Wanderlust festival in Squaw Valley. Although the entire festival was amazing my favorite class that I took was called The Release. I went into this class thinking it would be a bunch of screaming and just fully releasing what we had been holding on to, but it was so much more than that. We gave each other real lasting hugs, we looked into strangers eyes for a full minute without talking or laughing, and we told them that we loved them. This may sound weird to some skeptics out there (and maybe slightly on the hippie side of life) and I don't blame you for thinking that. Honestly, I probably would have thought that it was weird as well. However, I have never felt more connected with humankind, more loved by a group of people, or more free of emotions that had bogged me down for years! Why is that? What was the magic behind what happened in that class?

Let's Put Our Emotions in Motion

This is a hard one... processing through emotions is something that we as a society don't really do anymore. We hold on to what we are feeling, we push it down, and we hide. In turn, those emotions are held in the body and can actually manifest in negative ways throughout the body. So what should we do with our emotions when society tells us that showing emotion and processing through feelings is weak?

Why Self-Love is important to your health!

I hear it all the time, often in my own head: you're not good enough, you're not pretty enough, you're not fit enough, you don't work hard enough, blah, blah, blah. STOP. PAUSE. Would you talk like this to your best friend? How about your mom? Your S.O? NO! So why are we talking to ourselves like this? Why has it become the norm to do so?
