The (Ultimate) Guide to Better Sleep from a Former Insomniac

The (Ultimate) Guide to Better Sleep from a Former Insomniac

  Being a Type A individual has its upsides and downsides.  On the plus side, it drives me to get. stuff. done.  I mean, you can’t get through physical therapy school and pass boards without being at least a little Type A!  (And also a little crazy, but that’s a different issue entirely!  😉 ) On the negative side, my personality occasionally leads to sleepless nights.  A racing mind or being unable to wind down enough to sleep used to…

What I Ate Wednesday #1

What I Ate Wednesday #1

Hey friends!  How are you on this fine Wednesday?  It’s been quiet around these parts, which almost never happens, so I’m soaking it in!  I’m happy to report that I’m feeling a little less run down too.  Maybe it was all the golden milk?  😉 Remember how I mentioned that I enjoy reading What I’m Loving Lately posts?  What I Ate Wednesday would definitely fall into that same category.  I remember in undergrad planning my grocery shopping days on Thursday…

Easy Golden Milk Recipe

Hi there! Hope you all are well! I’m still trying to fight off a cold over here. At least it looks like the weather is on my side today. It’s supposed to be in the mid-70s! You know how I love cold weather…  I recently decided to try out golden milk (or a turmeric latte, depending on who you ask) that I’ve seen making its rounds on social media. It’s actually been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for centuries but…

My Go-To Green Smoothie

Hey y’all! Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend. We changed plans at the last minute and ended up traveling home to spend time with family.  It was a fun weekend but I’m sad to report that now I’m feeling a bit under the weather. It’s been go-go-go around here recently and I think it’s starting to catch up with me. So it’s time to turn on some Netflix (Friends reruns, anyone?) and whip up something full of…

Is Your Purse Causing Your Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain? A Physical Therapist’s Perspective + What To Do About It!

Is Your Purse Causing Your Back, Neck and Shoulder Pain? A Physical Therapist’s Perspective + What To Do About It!

I confess. I’ve let my purse contents get, well… out of hand.  And as a physical therapist, I know better!  My purse has turned into a Mary Poppins bag of sorts over the past few months. It’s all too easy to do.  I decided I needed to do something when I spent a day out with friends and came home with neck and shoulder pain plus an awful tension headache. Carrying a purse the wrong way or one that’s too…

What I’m Loving Lately #1

Congratulations!  We made it to Friday!  That’s always cause for a celebration, right? 🙂 This weekend we’re celebrating this guy’s 30th birthday!!!   When I asked him what he wanted to do to commemorate such an important day, he said he wanted to 1) visit a museum we’ve been meaning to check out for awhile, 2) eat sushi from his favorite sushi spot, 3) and “do lots of nothing”.  Spoken like a true introvert.     While I wasn’t able…

Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Toast | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free

Guys, I don’t mean to whine but… when will this winter end?!  It’s seems like it’s been cloudy and grey for as long as I can remember.  It’s also been brutally cold here in the ‘Burgh. Well, at least by my standards.  I’ve had 2 friends move here this winter, both from warmer climates, and I’ve felt personally responsible for reassuring them that it’s not always this frigid outside.  (Way to make a good first impression Pittsburgh…)   Since it…

My Tea Collection

My Tea Collection

  Those that know me know that I LOVE tea! I always have a cup of some kind of tea with me. I usually start my day out with a cup of refreshing iced black tea, either from Starbucks (I live dangerously close to one) or a cup that I’ve brewed at home. I almost always finish my day with a cup of some sort of hot herbal tea to wind down while watching an episode or two of Friends….

How to Grow Long, Healthy Hair Naturally (Without Giving Up Your Highlights)

How to Grow Long, Healthy Hair Naturally (Without Giving Up Your Highlights)

The past few years, I’ve been on a mission of sorts to grow long, healthy hair.  I think it all started with a bob-gone-wrong haircut a week before my wedding.  (NEVER get your hair cut right before your wedding, no matter how cute that picture of Carey Mulligan is and how great you think it will look on you!  It’s just not worth it, my friend.)   My hair always seemed to grow relatively fast, so it didn’t take long before…
