My Experience Living as an Empath

What does it feel like to be an Empath?

If you are reading this you likely already know. You probably are one.

Interview with Andy Grider, diagnosed with Diabetes May 2016

Posted by:


In May 2016, my husband was diagnosed with Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults or “LADA”. It was pretty shocking, as he didn’t fit the typical stereotype for Diabetes. Luckily, he was proactive and sought medical treatment when he wasn’t feeling well. He was fortunate he caught it early. At his initial doctor’s appointment, his glucose was at 324 and his pancreas wasn’t producing insulin.

He received a diagnosis on a Friday and was started on insulin the following Monday. It was ...

7 Must Do Self-Care Practices

Posted by:

Self-Care wasn’t always top of my list. It took time. It used to be, “self care” was exercising and checking a box. It had nothing to do with self-care and everything to do about “losing weight” and my “self image”.

I would often stress about fitting in my “self care” activity of exercising, which seems ironic. The very “self care” activity that was suppose to promote relaxation and destress me, was causing me stress trying to fit it in? ...

How to Live More Aligned with Your True Spirit

Posted by:

Have you ever wondered how to live life most aligned with your true spirit and serve your souls purpose? As kids, it comes so natural to do what makes our spirit happy. Over time this innate sense of spirit gets clouded. Well-intending parents, teachers, and other adults tell us what we “should do”, “how we should play”, and where we “should work”.  Slowly, there is a silencing that happens, as we are taught to do what society expects of us rather ...

What do heart rate training and yoga have in common?

Posted by:

If you have ever tried heart rate training, you may know that it is the most humbling, ego-less type of run training there is. It can be extremely mental.

If you haven’t, let me put it into perspective. My PR for a 5K is about 25 minutes. That was a recent PR and I could still likely run that if I got out there and pushed. Prior heart rate training, my long training runs were at around a 10:30 min/mi. Not anything speedy, but I ...
