Officially known as Rosmarinus officinalis, there are many research-proven health benefits and uses for this fragrant and healing herb.

I’m back from another whirlwind and beautiful trip from Bali – but this time it was a little more unique than a personal travel.

Amongst the idyllic rice fields and sunsets galore, we had an amazing group of ladies join us for a week of rest, rejuvenation, movement, meditation, and mindfulness. Read more [...]

Burn, baby, burn—calories that is. Everyone burns fuel doing everyday activities. Scientists even have a name for it: non-exercise activity thermogenesis. It’s the energy you use walking up stairs or lifting grocery bags, and with a little imagination, it’s easy to turn mundane activities into calorie-burning opportunities.
