    The Secret to Weight Loss

    The Secret to Weight Loss

    Buried in the thousands of articles in the health and fitness industry is the truth about losing weight and keeping it off. Why, you might be asking, would they want to bury the plain and simple truth about weight loss? Well that's easy, diet pills, fat burners, and other gimmicky weight loss products are a billion dollar a year industry. If you knew the truth about these products, then you would not spend your hard-earned money on these by and large wastes of money.

    Lull: The Mattress That Turned My Four Hours into Eight

    Lull: The Mattress That Turned My Four Hours into Eight

    I know from personal experience that finding the mattress that gives you the perfect night’s sleep can be a foreboding task. As I was searching for a new bed, I was intimidated by the prospect of choosing from hundreds of different mattresses. Each one promised to give me the best shut-eye I’ve ever had and I wasn’t sure what was actually going to make a difference in my sleep. Luckily, I heard about the The Lull Mattress, and ever since my sleep has been completely transformed. I wish I knew months ago that all it would take to overcome my sleepless nights was a new mattress. I hope that my journey to getting a full night of sleep inspires you to do the same.

    The Surprising Science Behind Lull, the Mattress That Will Change the Way You Sleep

    The Surprising Science Behind Lull, the Mattress That Will Change the Way You Sleep

    There’s nothing better than crawling into bed at night and there’s no place in the world more comfortable than your own bed (especially in those moments just before you fall asleep). Unfortunately, those fleeting moments of comfort are not as universal as you’d think. According to Consumer Reports, 68 percent of Americans have trouble sleeping at least once a week and Americans spent $41 billion on sleep aids in 2015. From sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome to anxiety and stress, there are plenty of factors that can contribute to a lack of sleep. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation, lost sleep can never be recovered. The easiest factor to fix? Your sleep environment.

    Overcoming My Fear of Failure

    Overcoming My Fear of Failure

    Adrenaline was coursing through my veins. I started my Fitbit too soon, I had to stop it. I was nervous. I was anxious. I was excited. One by one, clouds of emotions rolled over me. Here I was standing under an overcast sky on an early Saturday morning in June waiting for the announcer to yell, “Go!”. I stood still, holding my balance strong while being bumped around by runners rearing to take off just as much as I was. I was at the starting line of The Baltimore 10 Miler. Thoughts of doubt, thoughts of disbelief, and thoughts of pride circulated through my mind.

    How Meditating Killed Me

    How Meditating Killed Me

    I’m sure anyone who has heard of meditation has heard a story about somebody becoming so ungrounded that they lost all health and stability. Supposedly, finding yourself too high up in your chakras can detach you from your bodily needs and put you in a casket. I waved these exaggerations aside as I stepped into the world of meditation... that is until I found out for myself just how unexaggerated this scenario was.

    There's a Hearing Aid with Your Name on It

    There's a Hearing Aid with Your Name on It

    When I grow old, I’m going to wear a hearing aid so that I can hear myself think. It’s funny how we say things like that. Hearing yourself think is something I have said a thousand times before, but what does that really mean? We’ve all said things that we wish we could take back. But once we see the reaction of the person we are talking to, it’s too late to catch yourself. Thinking things through before saying them is the best policy, but it’s not always easy to do that. I think you lose spontaneity if you havr to think through everything you plan to say. Speaking your mind can be dangerous, so watch what you say.

    3 Easy Steps to Get You Started with Meditation

    The M word: meditation. We have all heard of it before. Maybe you heard Dr. Phil or an internet guru talking about its benefits and how it could change your life. Maybe you have had some interest in it but no time to invest into learning about it and grabbing the “gear.” Welp I have been there and resonate with your pain. Like you, I thought meditation was some holistic skill I wasn’t capable of doing. I was this way for a very long time until I discovered a YouTube video that quite honestly changed my life. This video gave me the insight I needed to start meditation. This led me to take the leap into the rabbit hole we call “Self-Care.” I learned a lot in that rabbit hole, but this blog is not about the rabbit hole, but actually about how to prep yourself for that jump in. These 3 easy steps I have listed below are what personally helped me and millions to get started in their meditation journey to a healthier lifestyle.
