Why You’ll Never Reach the Perfect Weight

Where did this obsession with reaching the “right” weight come from? It’s so ingrained in our society that I think most people don’t even realize the obsession is there. It’s so much a part of our culture, though, that it’s commonly assumed that everyone is trying to reach some kind of weight-related goal. That assumption? Not okay. Almost every single article I see in magazines and on popular websites has something to do with losing weight or reaching a body goal. Slim down, get that bikini body, eat for a slimmer waist, blah blah blah. What if someone doesn’t want to lose weight? What if (SHOCKER) someone wants…

Removing Triggers from Your Life

Recently I’ve felt like there are a lot of triggers around me. Everywhere seems to be a breeding ground for comparison. Real life interactions, TV, magazines, the Internet. Where it’s really intense, though, is social media. Social media is a double-edged sword. As much as I love the idea of getting to see BTS of people’s lives, sometimes it’s just too much information. Also, a lot of it is fake. BTS…or BS?! I’ve said it again and again, and I’m going to keep saying it until people actually process it and believe it. Listen to Instagram Lies on Actually Adultish – I rant about this problem on that episode. People…

2017 Goals. NOT Resolutions.

HAPPY 2017! I spent New Year’s Eve taking a super sweaty hot yoga class lead by Jordan, which was followed by a guided meditation lead by Sophie Jaffe. It was amazing. The entire night was extremely calming and enlightening, and being surrounded by so much positivity and love was the best way to bring in the new year. After the meditation, we journaled and set intentions, which got my mind racing. I journaled hard, and I really realized how much I want to accomplish in the next year. RESOLUTIONS. Not a fan. I wrote about it a little bit last year, but basically I think…

12 Things I Learned in 2016

2016 might be over, but I still found myself writing 2013 on my paper the other day. I’m clearly struggling to keep up with the times. I know you’ve probably read a million posts with this same exact title already, but I still want to write mine. Personally, I love reading these kinds of posts. It’s so interesting and enlightening to see what others have been through in the past year and how it changed them. These posts are also a great source of inspo for new perspectives to take and new things to think about in the upcoming year. Maybe…

Be Careful Who You Take Health Advice From…

If you haven’t already caught on, the amount of incorrect health information circulating around in our society is something that really, really, REALLY bothers me. Did I mention how much it bothers me? More than that, though, it scares me. It scares me because people do, believe it or not (sarcasm), follow the health advice so-called “experts” give them. Consumers usually do have good intentions – they really do want to know what’s “healthy.” Unfortunately, though, it seems like the loudest voices are most often the wrong ones. While that’s not always true, it’s much too common. And while some sources of misinformation might seem devastatingly…
