5 Things To Do TODAY for Younger Looking Skin

I know, I know… I should have listened to my grandmother when she told me to start taking care of my skin at 13…

But here I am at 32, haha. I’m late the the party.

I didn’t really start taking care of my skin… and then I turned 30 and I realized I was starting to look OLD O.o

So here are FIVE things I have learned in the past two years that helps me Turn Back the Clock and Look Younger!

1. Moisturize

Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize! The leading cause of wrinkles is DRY SKIN! (Did you know that?? I didn’t!) So prevention is super easy… just start using a great day and night cream to prevent your skin from drying out (especially if you live in an area with dry winters). One a week deep hydrating Facials is always a good way to prevent and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. read more

How to Reach Your Goals

When you start a new business or have a big goal you are trying to reach… there are different actions you can do to increase your chances and success.

Why You Should STOP Running Marathons

I used to be a long distance runner. I ran cross country and track in high school. It was no big deal to go run 10 miles on a Saturday morning. When I was pregnant with Aidalyn, I continued to run long distances in my first trimester. This was before I knew how unhealthy it is for your body to run very long distances. 

Why is long distance running so appealing?

Why do we idolize the idea of running long distances for health? It seems like the iconic view of health is a woman running outside along a body of water…. where did this come from? read more

Does Your Doctor Respect You

Doctor’s are great sources of information. They are good at decision-making when they are presented with your common health issues. They are great at emergency situations. They are vital to our communities…

What doctor’s are not good at is respecting you.

The Waiting Room

I was not very good at taking Aidalyn to her well baby check-ups. I think we made it to 2 total? Since we aren’t vaccinating the girls yet, there was really no point to expose her to more germs at the doctor’s office. read more
