I never gave much thought (if any at all) to self-love until two years ago. My entire life I have always had a firm grasp on the importance of being loving and kind to others, but I was never taught the importance of being loving and kind to myself. I remember thinking that self-love was a nice way of saying conceited - I was wrong about that. Self-love is an absolute game changer - it will change the way that you feel about yourself, it will change your thoughts, choices, and behaviour, and it will improve the relationships that you choose to...

I have had Anxiety all of my life, from my early childhood until now - though I didn't have a name for that feeling, or a formal diagnosis until several years ago. Anxiety is one hell of a thing, it's an incredibly isolating, and often times indescribable feeling. It can make moments that should be exciting, nauseating.

It's difficult to work towards something when we don't know exactly what it is that we're working towards. Once you're clear...

There is a ton of misinformation out there in the health and fitness industry, leaving many people confused as to what's fact and what's fiction. Let's debunk some popular fitness and nutrition myths, shall we? MYTH: EATING AT NIGHT WILL CAUSE YOUR BODY TO STORE FAT TRUTH: Eating late at night will not cause weight gain. Weight gain is caused by eating more calories than your body requires on a regular, consistent basis. What we eat can overtime cause weight gain, however when we eat has little (if any) impact on whether or not we gain weight. There is no internal clock that cues our body...
