Guest Post: 5 Ways To Reconnect With Your Body & Soul


Around my thirtieth birthday, I became very ill. My energy and wellbeing took a very sharp downward turn.

As a result […]


Why You Should Be Dancing Every Day

Fitness Friday: Why You Should Ignore Those Acia Berry Diet Ads

I recently saw one of those acai berry/total cleanse diet ads pop up on my site from an ad service. Needless to say, I immediately took steps to have it blocked. Why? Because the acai berry diets that have been widely advertised have been reported as fraudulent and misleading. Here is how they work: The […]
