Inspiring Quotes Card Deck
I created this deck because words matter. Our thoughts and feelings about ourselves, others, and the world are influenced by the words we hear, read, and say. This deck of cards is a collection of my favorite quotes and photos from my travels. I hope both the images and words inspire you to live life with grace every single day.

21-Days to Free Your Space
Our lives are FULL of stuff. Our closets are overflowing with clothes we don’t wear. Our junk drawers are spilling over with knick knacks we don’t understand or use. Our minds are full of negative judgemental thoughts. And we’re fueling our body with junk food instead of fresh clean eats. Let me help you let go of some of that clutter filling up your home, body and spirit. Let’s make room in your life for what you really want.
21-Days to Rejuvenating Sleep
As a woman who has been running a successful business for two decades now, I am often asked: How do you get it all done? How are you so productive? Get online, and you will see this buzzword, productivity, everywhere. There is a whole business around productivity: apps, coaches, planners, you name it. Don’t get me wrong, there really are some remarkable tools out there. But one of the best things you can do for your productivity is SLEEP! Sleep is often misunderstood and undervalued. That is why I had to create 21-Days to Rejuvenating Sleep. So I could help people see that sleep is not replaceable. In fact, sleep is the first step, the starting block to living a healthy, energetic and vibrant life.

It is no secret that I love green smoothies. I love starting my day with them or sipping on one for an afternoon snack. Having a good blender can make or break a green smoothie.

We have to move! Right now, most of us sit for the majority of our day. We sit at our desks for around eight hours. Then we get home and sit at a dinner table. Some of us, many of us, follow up dinner by sitting on the couch and watching our favorite show on Netflix. To move more, first you need to be aware. How many steps do you take in a day? How long to do you walk? The Garmin Vivofit can be your movement tool and accountability partner.

I believe it is important to put the O.I.M.F. (Odds in my favor.) Part of doing that is being prepared for the uncertain health events that often arise. Also, part of putting the O.I.M.F. is prevention through self-care. You can use an HSA for massages, chiropractic care and acupuncture. (Note: Holistic prevention practices and treatments aren’t always covered by traditional insurance.)
