5 Healthy Eating Tips for Busy Working Women
“Adulting” is something that my friends and I often talk about. Making it on your own is both exciting and challenging, so we've all found ways of tackling it that work for us. My life has become way more routine-based since starting a full-time job, so I’ve been working to incorporate healthier habits that allow me to feel good.
The Harms of Being Labeled a 'Difficult' Patient
Imagine you’ve just been handed a complete copy of your medical records. As you’re skimming it, you find that one of your physicians left a note in your chart stating that you were difficult and non-compliant during one of your appointments. “That can’t be right,” you think as you try to remember what might have gone wrong during that appointment. There was that one time you refused a medication you didn’t feel comfortable taking, or maybe it was the time that you cried because the doctor suggested that it was all in your head… but surely that wasn’t enough to warrant a note like that, right?
Life Forced Me into a Tailspin so I Changed Directions
The new me is a little overweight, maybe 10–15 pounds, but still sexy as hell. My hair color is varied; according to the box the base color is Beeline Honey, but a stylist added light blond and auburn highlights. At one time, they blended beautifully. Then the grey roots grew exposing a skunk line down the middle of my head. I covered that with some anti-grey wash-in dye my husband used and learned "Just For Men" means not for women. It didn't turn out like I planned so now there are patches yes, patches of brown splattered around as if I recently finished a game of paintball.
Could Chopin Be the Most Famous Person With Cystic Fibrosis?
The urge to cough was strong. Stronger still was the need to finish. Back rigidly straight, Fryderyk Chopin's fingers danced. Just a little more. Nearly there. The melody took over. Lost in the soothing sounds, Chopin blocked out his bodily needs.
I Thought Yoga Was a New Age Fad for "Spiritual" People

We get all tired and weary. And sometimes sleep – essential though it is – just isn’t enough to bring us back to ourselves. We’ve all been carrying an especially heavy load over the past two years.

So You Want to Be a Runner: A Beginner’s Guide to Running
I’ll never forget my first real run. It was in high school gym class. We had to run around a track for 10 minutes. It had been years since I’d played a good game of tag or had run very far at all. And when I ran around that track that day, my breathing was ragged, my chest burned, and my legs felt like lead.
To the woman that got verbally abusive to me at the hospital
I used to believe I could be the good in the world, and I thought that I could make a difference in people’s lives.

Introducing Restlessness Worst Nightmare: The Lull Luxe Hybrid Mattress
As a new parent, I have quickly learned the value of sleep. I am now a mother of a precious 8-month old baby girl and the past eight months have been amazing, challenging, and life-changing! I cannot lie, those first few months were a complete blur, but now that our sweet baby girl has been sleeping through the night, we’ve been able to gain back some of those lost hours and we are so very happy about that. We are even more thrilled, because not only have our stretches of sleep increased, but we’ve also seen an improvement in the quality of our sleep. I knew that my sleep wouldn’t be my top priority when my baby came, so I wanted to make sure that when I was lucky enough to be getting some sleep, I was getting the best sleep possible. Since making the switch, my husband and I have both been noticeably sleeping so much better! This is all thanks to our new mattress: The Lull Luxe Hybrid!
