You know that feeling, when you’ve let a lot of your usual habits fall by the wayside and start to feel totally discombobulated, anxious and out of sorts?

When Willpower Gives Out, This is Why

mindset nutrition Aug 22, 2018

When do you feel like you have the most willpower?

The Real Reason All-or-Nothing Mindset Around Food Feels So Hard

mindset nutrition Aug 01, 2018

We talk a lot about all-or-nothing mindset, and what it really comes down to the most is trust.

Your Food, Your Business: Redefining How You Eat

lifestyle mindset nutrition Jul 02, 2018

Recently I was interviewed for an article where the journalist asked me if I would help people eat according to their moral code, or if I would try to steer them in a different direction.   This got me thinking about how attached we get to food and how it can do more harm than good.

This isn’t something I’ve talked about much, but I’ve had a full time job in a completely unrelated industry (automotive!) for the past 11 years.  I started there part-time as a student, and went full time after I finished university, and I’ve been there ever since. Until this past...

lifestyle mindset Dec 18, 2017

I did a Room To Grow Podcast episode about this too.  Check it out here

I’m not sure if I’m just paying more attention this year, but it seems like every where I turn, someone else is listing their holiday gift guide, and the minimalist in me cringes every time I see another one.
