We've all either heard about or engaged in the fad diets right?
Low carbs, high fat, decreased calories, you name it, most people have probably at least given it a shot.
And then what happens?
We miss our normal routine and go back to what we are used to doing.
The problem arises here because we didn't change our mindset or our habits, we just restricted for a short period of time.
Rather than having self compassion, forgiveness, and self love, we tend to go toward hating our bodies and having to "lose" a part of it to feel good about ourselves.
What if instead of hate or body shaming, we moved into a place of self love for ALL parts of our body.
What if we honored our bodies as temples and wanted to take care of them the best we could so that they continue to function well to house our souls.
Our bodies allow us to fulfill our purpose here on earth.
They are beautiful,...
Are you feeling stuck in your current area of life? Do you have dreams or aspirations but are not sure how to get there?
The Dragontree Life Coaching Program is heart centered, eye opening, and it truly will change your perspective and your life.
This program guides you deeply through introspection of yourself and also teaches you how to help others along their journey to their truest selves.
I was astounded by the amount of depth that this program went through and how well it allowed me to take a look at my current circumstances and what I needed to change to feel fulfilled.
One my the most important takeaways from this Life Coaching program is that it changed my idea of what I thought was possible for myself.
It helped me take the leap from my 9-5 and start my own business, Mind Body Aligned, and to me that is invaluable.
Here's a question for you:
Do you live each day just waiting for it to be the weekend? Do you want to be able to work...
When my mom passed away of cancer in the fall of 2018, all I could do was do my best to cling to affirmations and my faith.
I hope that these affirmations bring you some peace no matter what you are going through.
1. I trust in the divine process of life.
This means that you have more faith than fear. You decide to trust that things are happening for you and not to you. You are able to live everyday joyously because you trust in the process of getting what you desire.
2. I am grateful for all this day has to offer and teach me.
Sometimes life's lessons are painful and feel like a punch to our souls. However, remember that we are flexible and adaptable beings. Be open to growing every day. You don't have to be perfect, stay learning every day and think about how much progress you'll have made even in one month!
3. I am getting stronger every day.
If we focus on the negative or what we resist, that only grows more. Think of yourself as the...
Did you know that you can improve your hypothyroidism? This is something that many doctors or the internet do not tell you.
I am so happy to be talking about this today because I think it is something that does not get talked about enough.
We hear all the time about how more and more people are being diagnosed with hypothyroidism and what does that mean?
Basically, our thyroid gland (a master gland of our body!) is not producing enough thyroid hormone and we are feeling the negative effects.
The main question we need to ask why? Why did this happen and how do we get to the root of the problem?
Was it gut issues in your digestion system? Stress? Infection? Lack of proper nutrients?
While there are many causes and factors of hypothyroidism, there are also many symptoms.
These effects of hypothyroidism can include:

Everyone is talking about natural products and there is a huge reason why.
What we put onto our skin has a direct impact on our body and its function.
Aluminum, one of the ingredients in most deodorants, has been shown to impair thyroid function.
It's time to go ALUMINUM FREE!
Since your skin is your biggest organ, we need to take care in what we put on it since it effects our ability to detox and stay healthy.
Let's be real here...
I have always been a person who sweats.. this can be a blessing and a curse.
The blessing: Sweating is a huge and great way our body naturally detoxes itself! Sweating removes toxins and cleanses the body.
The curse: Without the right deodorant... life can get stinky - ew! No one wants that. This is why I USED to use what I thought were all of the "good" deodorants, Secret etc with their flowery smells. I did...
Detoxing our bodies is so important for how we feel right now and our long term health. Keeping our body in a healthy balance and supporting our detoxing organs (skin, liver, kidneys, and colon) is of utmost importance because we need them functioning well, hopefully, for a very long time.
Did you know your skin is your body's largest organ? Things that we put on our skin get directly absorbed into our bodies and go into our bloodstream, having an impact on our body in a variety of ways. Often chemicals can disrupt our brains as well as our hormones. These are known as endocrine disruptors or neuroendocrine disruptors. (You can look up these words to find the exact chemicals that affect them for more information).
Most people do not realize that every day we get toxic exposure whether it's through pollution, pesticides sprayed on the grass or on our food, chemicals in our household products, and even our own stress.

Dry brushing as a continual practice is such a beautiful way to honor your skin, body, and heart.
It may seem odd, brushing your skin... but trust me it feels amazing. Using a dry brush with bristles in an upward, gentle, sweeping motion (always towards your heart) has a wide array of benefits both physically and mentally.
It is best to dry brush before showering (hence, dry ; )) . Trust me, I did this and I felt so reinvigorated during my shower. It's incredible how some simple self care can help you feel strong, powerful, and excited to seize the day.
Here are the 5 top health reasons to start dry brushing:
