Jungle Journal: When the Inside and the Outside Don’t Match

I am trying really hard to honour my adjustment period being home only a few days from a HUGE 4 month journey in Costa Rica (more to come as I unpack all the feels) but wanted to share a journal I wrote a couple of weeks before leaving.  With all the emotions that arise during [...]

Jungle Journals: Transcending Your Busy Mind

This can viewed in video format on YouTube & it originally appeared in Best Self Magazine (Nov 2018) I woke this morning while it was still dark, 5:02am Friday, October 12 lit brightly on my iPhone screen. My first thought is whether or not the shelter is open. We’re in the thick of rainy season here in [...]

Trusting Your Intuition for Optimal Wellness (part 3 of 3)

We’re at part 3 of this series already! Today we unpack: Trusting Your Intuition. Trusting your intuition is a topic I am asked about A LOT. Many understand it in theory but are unsure how to actually put it into practice. This is a coaching moment I really love to share because as you begin [...]

Supporting Physical Health While Addressing Mental Health (Part 2 of 3)

I have to say I have a heavy heart this week as it relates to issues of mental health. Along with the sad passing of both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, there was a very young woman in my community that committed suicide this week. My family, like so many, is not a stranger to [...]

Beyond The Label: Improving Mental Health with Naturopathic Medicine (part 1 of 3)

We all know someone who suffers with mental health and for many of my beautiful tribe, it’s a personal journey.

Our chat uncovered a load of [...]

Episode #42 // Flossing and A Positive Morning Ritual

There is something I do EVERY MORNING, that I kid is more important than flossing my teeth (but I’m enough of a rule-follower that I do both), and it’s a huge part of my journey toward enjoying The Full Life. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time (3 minutes the science says, and [...]

Why Not Take a Walking Meditation?

You Can Meditate with Your Eyes Open. Seriously, You Can. It's no secret that there are many health benefits, physical and emotional, that you gain from meditation. But, just like getting to the gym, that doesn't make it any easier to find the time to do the practice. Right?!  WRONG!!! With Spring around the corner, [...]

Episode #38 // Holiday Reboot: Stress-Less Guided Visualization Exercise

The holidays can be filled with contradiction; joy and overwhelm, abundance and clutter, love and frustration, harmony and reactivity, peace and resentment. Although we may not realize, we have a choice to choose nourishing feelings and reactions over those that leave us feeling stressed out. One of the best ways I know to increase the [...]

Episode #35 // Do You Exercise Self Compassion?

Welcome to The Full Life! I’ve been on the horn lately about getting good at Self Compassion. For many, it’s the soft side of a more critical conversation we have with ourselves when we don’t measure up. “Good heavens, don’t be kind to yourself! You’ll never do better!” is more the norm. There is loads [...]

Episode #34// The Full Life Reboot: A Self Compassion Break

This week on our REBOOT episode (those short ones aimed at giving us a few minutes of “guided” stillness) we’re exploring a Self Compassion Break. This particular one is based on the work of Kristen Neff. She is, in my eyes, a self compassion Guru (check out her TedTalk for more on this subject https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvtZBUSplr4) [...]
