    SERENITY

    “The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled”. This sounds amazing, right! But how do we achieve this? Serenity comes from living a peaceful and meaningful life. There are things you can do to enhance serenity, but it’s a long-term process. Serenity, to me, is a higher sense of: relaxation, peacefulness, and calmness.   Things you should be doing… ~Meditate ~Take time for yourself (even if it’s 5 minutes) ~Turn off your phone or at least the notifications ~Spend time in nature ~Go for a walk ~Listen to soft music (I like rain sounds) ~Look at aesthetically designed pictures ~Close your eyes and visualize your goals ________________________________________________________ Connect with me…

    June Favorites (Vegan)

    My summer is flying by! This month I have quite a few favorites. I don’t purchase a lot of things, so most of my favorites are foods or experiences. Fruit bowls have been my life this month. This one is banana, blackberries, and dark sweet cherries. I put together my own fruit bowls to save money. I visited a new restaurant this month. It’s called HomeGrown and it is great for those who love to eat intentionally. As the name suggests, the restaurant prides itself on natural and local ingredients. While there were only a couple of vegan options, I still very much enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it…

    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” ~ Arthur Ashe “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.” ~Unknown “I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.” ~Unknown “If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed.

    DECLUTTER

    Consumption is out of control. More, more, more. This is driving our society. We buy more in hopes of instant gratification. Getting that next “best thing” will make your life easier. False. The constant search for better and newer things just creates clutter. Clutter holds you back and is essentially visual noise. Do you want to be a slave to your possessions? I think there are two types of clutter. There is mental clutter and there is physical clutter. Both can be caused by social media and mass consumption. Mental clutter can be commercials, advertisements, magazine covers, etc. While these things can’t collect on your floor, they can collect in…

    Typical Workout Routine

    For me, physical health is not about getting those 6-pack abs. It’s about feeling strong and healthy. Working out is honoring your body and it shows what you are capable of. I try to exercise on a regular basis. Running and Yoga are my favorites. I typically run or do some cardio for at least 40 minutes (5 days a week). I prefer running outside, but when the weather isn’t ideal I will go to the gym. I also do some strength training (3 days a week). For this, I lift lighter weights with more reps. This builds lean muscle. I try to do core workouts a couple times a…

    A Walk in the Morning

    For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky, and contemplate how amazing life is. ~ Unknown     __________________________________________ Social Media ♥ Instagram | Tumblr   * All photos are mine.

    A Weekend in Nashville

    I’ve been to Nashville many times, but I go home wanting more each time. Not because it is a bad city, but because I always want to explore it further and it seems I always run out of time. To sum it up, Nashville has great food, great music, and a great atmosphere. You don’t have to have a plan when you go there, you can simply walk down the street and find something to do.       Thanks for reading! _________________________________________ Social Media ♥ Instagram | Tumblr Check out this post!

    Savannah Travel Guide

    If you have been following my blog, then you know that I was on a 10 day trip. I traveled to the “South” and did service work and also experienced the rich culture of Savannah, Georgia. Georgia isn’t often on people’s list of places to vacation, but I truly think it is worth the visit! What’s not to like? Savannah has: an amazing downtown, rich (also dark) history, friendly people, tasty food, awesome bars, and peaches are literally everywhere. If you are planning a trip to Savannah, here is what you need to check out. If you aren’t planning a trip to Savannah, then I hope this persuades you to go. *Pictures…
