What, Me Volunteer?
I've been told that there are 135 good reasons to give blood, but for the life of me, when the tech approached me with that big-bore, suck-your-liver-out needle, humming the Flight of the Valkyrie, I couldn't think of a single one.
Please be patient, I have autism
I often hurt people unexpectedly and unintentionally. I was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) back in my mid-twenties. I was completing my last semester of my undergraduate studies at the time. Back then, PDD-NOS was its own thing, something I had never heard of until my therapist mentioned it to me.
My Rules for Becoming a Healthier Perfectionist
At the beginning of this year, I attempted to complete yet another Blogilates Pilates fitness challenge. Up until this point, I had started too many challenges to remember, and completed none.
Could a Plant-Based Diet Help You Live a Longer Life?
Could following a plant-based diet help you live a longer life? There’s no denying that plant-forward diets are becoming increasingly popular in the US and across the world. But if you’re a health-conscious individual who hasn’t made the switch yet, you may be wondering if it’s worth the effort.
Living without vision
have you ever wondered what it would be like to live your life in total darkness? Imagine having a blindfold permanently tied to your face, covering your eyes, and preventing you from seeing anything. That is how I live my life, except my eyes aren’t covered by a blindfold. I was born prematurely, and I would like to share my story with you. I truly hope that it will inspire people all around the world. It’s meant to motivate you to live your life while you can. You only have one life to live, so live it the best way you know how. Keep in mind that blindness has its ups and downs just like everything else in life.

How the LIFTID Personal Brain Stimulator Improved My Focus
Like most people, I struggle with having enough focus and energy to get through the day. The world moves so fast, and there are always a million things to do, never enough time, and it can be somewhat overwhelming. Most of us need something to help us get through the day- coffee, tea, an energy drink, maybe even a pre-workout supplement. We typically turn to these sugary outward stimulant drinks, but what if you could use a neurostimulation device that goes directly to the source? Right into your brain! That is precisely what LIFTID does! This concept that LIFTID presented sounded very interesting to me, and I wanted to learn more.

My Favorite At-Home Tool To Improve Focus & Memory
Forgetting somebody's name, not remembering a place you’ve been before, or even something as simple as where you put your keys can all be concerning, if not a little scary. We all know the “Golden Years” are not always what they're cracked up to be. What can we do to slow the progress of time and have a good quality of life? Taking care of yourself, staying healthy and active, including keeping your brain stimulated, is the best we can do.
My Stress Levels Could Kill Me Within Half an Hour
It sounds like either major clickbait or a serious overreaction, right? I mean, sure, stress kills many people slowly, but within half an hour?
The Mindfulness Exercise that Changed Everything for Me
I strongly remember one instance where I was doing absolutely nothing. I was in Pacific Grove, California - having just rolled into town the day before. My partner Steven and I were living out of our Dodge van with our two dogs at the time - and it had been a particularly shitty day.
Mind Over Body - An Anti-aging Therapy
While viewing a scenery, our mind admires its spectacular view, carries the euphoria effect to the body. The outcome is a buoyant soul. Proven or not, this butterfly effect is damn real and one can feel it. We have implied this cause-and-effect theory in our lives. It’s time to relate these concepts to our lifespan. Birth and death of a living creature balances the ecosystem. Year by year, we grow old, our body gives way for the degeneration. This is quite natural and we can’t stop it. It affects the mind, causes the body to fasten up the aging process, hence our lifespan reduces fast in the speed of a race car.

My Perspective on PYM Mood Chews, As A Nutritionist
Stress. It’s a six letter word that we hear and experience all too often. Not only are we constantly seeing or hearing about it in the news and media, but it’s that sudden heart racing feeling when the dog throws up and you're already late to a meeting, it’s your mother birthday and you forgot to send flowers, and, oh, cars out of gas. As you are watching the minutes tick away, your hypothalamus, a tiny control tower in your brain, decides to send out the orders, “send in the stress response!”. This stress signal is the same one that triggers your body’s “fight or flight” response. Your heart races, your breath quickens, and your muscles are ready for action. While this response is great to protect you from impending danger, when it keeps firing day after day it can actually be putting your health at risk.
