Yoga for Insomnia

I’ve written about my insomnia time and time again, most recently here. My sleep challenge is a constant battle and something that I will always work to improve. Whether it’s acupuncture, breathing exercises, natural supplements, or a nighttime routine, I’m willing to try pretty much anything. One thing that I try to do on and off is a nightly yoga routine.

We were lucky enough to travel almost every week, and when we were home, our weekends were packed full of plans and projects. It was a non-stop blur of activity.

I recently read that women put an average of 168 chemicals on their body every day. Every day! That number was eye-opening and disturbing to me.

I recently went through a 2-week intensely anxious period (It’s passed and I now feel great again!), and although it’s not fun to talk about, I hope that by sharing my tips, I can … Read the post >>

Skin Cleanse

I was blessed by the skin Gods and somehow never had acne in my teenage years. However, a year before my wedding, I developed what my facialist called “cystic acne”. It didn’t look all that terrible, but it was deeply rooted under my skin hurt like a mo’ fo’. I’ve since learned how to control it with the product I use and by avoiding certain … Read the post >>

The Space Between
