Learn about my experience with anxiety, and how I took control of my anxiety and mental health with the combination of seeing a therapist and a strong group of loved ones in my life.

I decided to share my own experience and story about my journey with anxiety. A little over a year ago I was experiencing the worst crippling anxiety I had ever dealt with, but thankfully I had amazing loved ones and found a great therapist to help me through one of the toughest times of my life. There’s still a stigma surrounding anxiety and other mental health issues.

  I did it, you guys! I made my first Youtube video for this blog!!

I break thisRead More →

What's the difference between self-care and laziness? There's a fine line between taking a mental health break, and simply being lazy. I break down the differences between the two so you can help recognize your patterns and see if there's anything you need to change in your self-care routine!

The other day I received an Instagram message from a follower who was still learning about self-care and what works best for her. She mentioned that she sometimes finds herself using “self-care” as an excuse, instead of an act of self-love. I could definitely relate to her experience. I’m not perfect. Even though I’ve had a longer experience practicing self-care, I unfortunately still occasionally find myself using self-care as an excuse to be lazy. For example, sometimes I find myself binge-watching a new show instead of working on my blog. Even though I know I had the energy and time to work on my priorities,Read More →

As I started diving into the personal development world, I kept seeing this bright yellow book everywhere I looked.

I was still in my full-time corporate job but knew I needed to start moving forward towards something else. Nothing was panning out – none of the jobs in my area sounded right, andRead More →

Guest Post by Kristen from Sophisticated Gal It feels like not long ago I was going to one of my Advertising courses in college, spending countless hours on our final project that determined my grade in the class and if I would graduate. Fast forward three years and here I am settling into my career, looking back on the lessons I’ve learned since starting my “big girl” job in the real world. Since I started my career, I have learned so much about what it means to have a job in the “real world”. When you’re in college, they don’t really teach you what itRead More →

While it’s sometimes challenging to find friends as an adult, this is a fantastic chance to surround yourself with positive and uplifting people.Read More →
