Let’s be real.. No one wants to be gluten free. The thought of sacrificing those delicious cinnamon buns, Italian subs, poppyseed bagels, chocolate chip cookies… It’s tough.

And also the thought of being grouped with a lot of the other gluten free fanatics that see it almost like a religion can be unappealing too...

But, the truth of the matter is we can’t force feed our body something it is vocal about not liking.

Gluten reactions occur in the majority of its consumers. The reactions are vari...

I love getting to know more about myself. I find it extremely useful to get more in depth into why I am the way I am so that I can better my choices and actions for a happier/healthier me in the future. Like Socrates’ famous directive, “Know thyself.” It is desire for growth that propels me into deeper and deeper knowledge of the brain.

Mindfulness Cures Mundaneness

The Three Best Apps for People Wanting to Make the Mundane Valuable

We often see the simple, boring tasks in life as a waste of our time.

Why do we listen to music when we drive?  Why do we spend meetings browsing our phone? Why do we pass off unenjoyable tasks to others? Why do we listen to a podcast, help our kids with homework, AND wash the dishes all at the same time?

Partaking in the decadence of Christmas, whether that be decorating the tree, going to Holiday parties, or perhaps binging on all the peppermint bark that comes our way... (tell me I'm not alone in this)... is part of what makes this season special.
