To Feel Less Restless, We Need to Rest More

I’ve been excessively restless this winter. Always daydreaming about the next person or place to go adventure to. Within a few days of my last trip to the states I was already looking at flights for my next trip. And don’t get me wrong I love travel and trying new things, but I don’t want to confuse enjoying those experiences for running away from the … Continue reading To Feel Less Restless, We Need to Rest More

If one area is feeling off, it can shake your whole life up quite a bit. Don’t underestimate how taking care of little issues in your life can make a big positive impact in many areas.

When we sat down, completely relived to know … Continue reading I cry when I’m Hungry

Confessions of Someone with Zero Upper Body Strength 

Hi, my name is Emilia and I hate cardio.

Really and truly, I do. And yet Kait asked me to write about physical health.

Let me explain…

As a kinesiology/nutrition student and an athlete-turned-couch-potato-turned-yogi, I think I have a pretty unique perspective on physical health. I’m going to focus in on exercise here (even though there are so so many more important components, some of which I may be covering in future blog posts) and what I’ve learned through my experience and my studies.
