Do you find advice on wellness alienating sometimes? Do you find that some advice is overwhelming and wonder where to start? “I want to cultivate wellness practices and care for myself but some of the advice out there seems too radical and I don’t know where to start” If you can relate, I have compiled a simple list of ideas (not rules) to answer the question: Where do I begin? and the good news is that it has nothing to do with spending money or investing time you don’t have… we are demystifying wellness by taking it back to the beginning!

Am I having an Existential Crisis?
I had a plan. I put everything int0 this plan: my time, effort, and energy, and to no avail. The universe returned my efforts with a message: there is a greater plan you need to follow now, and it is not the one you were working for (and you know it).
