Stress. Yeah, life is stressful. It’s our work, daily obligations, family, even traffic, plus whatever else it is we have going on in our day that all take a toll on us and sometimes we don’t even realize it. Our bodies are amazing entities, really. They know what’s wrong with us long before we do. Have you ever noticed how your body holds on to stress? It’s many other places than just our minds.
I wanted to write this post and not exactly have a topic, kind of just to chat with you guys. (more…)
You know when life feels like it’s just on repeat? Nothing is new or interesting and the same thoughts going in and out your mind and you’re doing everything on your to-do list but the list repeatedly stays the same. Well, at least for me that has been the feeling lately. I know what I want to achieve but not sure what exactly I’m going to do or what exactly my next move is. I don’t have a map planned out of what to do to reach all the places I want to be.

What does a plant need to grow? It needs an environment that it can thrive in and to be taken care of, right? If the plant starts to outgrow the environment, you put it in a place that is better fit. If we forget to water it for some time it might start to suffer, but we can catch it before it’s too late. It won’t happen overnight but with some care the plant can thrive again. (more…)
By reading the title of this you probably know whether it applies to you or not. I have been reading a lot the past few weeks (mostly blog posts but books too!!) and by the looks of it, I know that many of you know what I’m talking about. There are very few things that feel worse than when your mind is going a million places at once and not knowing why or where it came from. It’s even more intense if you’re someone that typically feels calm and collected. You aren’t used to being shaken up all the time. Your fight or flight reaction doesn’t know what to do, you stay calm but your head feels crazed, probably more than you want to admit to. Admittedly or not, it happens to the best of us one time or another. So, if this sounds like you, or even if it doesn’t, here ya go:
