Each month I sit down to reflect and write about what has been inspiring me over the past month. Spring is a beautiful time of year to let go of unwanted mindsets, behaviors, and habits to make space for new ways of being to unfold.
This month's wellness roundup is a combination of how to clear space + let go with planting new habits and vibes into your life that will support you to see beauty, thrive, and love yourself.Read More

I have been thinking a lot this month about intentional living. About how daily choices I make in my life and how they in turn affect my personal well-being and also my family, community, and in small ways the world at large.
For example, it have given me a renewed sense of purpose to choose how and what I buy with intention. I am choosing to opt for resale shops and support small business and handmade more and more. Are my choices perfect? No. They will never be, and I will never place that pressure on myself. But, what I choose instead is to make better and more intentional decisions day to day. To feel really good about the way I am spending my time and my money. To be aware and conscious about how my choices create a ripple effect.
A theme for me this past month has been settling into quiet, stillness, and challenging that which I bring into my life. The idea of less: spending less, less screen time, less needless distraction has been coupled with more: time with friends, authenticity, truth. Below are some of what has been inspiring me lately to soak up the space between the moments and allow for less noise and more inspiration.Read More
Connection is important. To bring more viewpoints into awareness, allow for ideas to inspire, and learn methods to manifest change. The focus at Nourish 360 is always to bring a variety of information to our community to support our unique and individual strive for well-being and happiness. It is also the drive behind our new Wellness Maven Interviews, happening the first Friday of every month. By connecting, learning, and gleaning from others, we gain the opportunity to incorporate new ideas and approaches in our own lives to support ourselves and the others around us.Read More
Resources are important. But we don't always know where to look for good information. Hence, at the end of every month, Nourish 360 will be posting a 'Wellness Roundup' to connect and share with you what has been inspiring us lately. And to contribute to and elevate this community, please share with us in the comments what you've been finding especially helpful and motivating lately.Read More

Happy Holidays people! This is definitely one of my... ok actually it is my favorite time of year. I love the vibe that the holidays bring with the crisp air, warm drinks, and reasons abound to celebrate. There is no way like putting on some of my favorite holiday tunes to really delve into the season and all it has to offer. So, I created this lovely playlist for you to enjoy. I hope it helps you enjoy the holidays and slide right into the festive spirit; hot cocoa in hand. I hope it finds you inspired to step away from the stress and the over-the-top-ness the holidays can sometimes bring and settle into the simple beauty that the end of the year has to offer. Below I have listed some of my favorite slow and meaningful activities I love to do while listening to my favorite holiday tunes.
- write down my goals and dreams for the New Year

I am so honored and excited to say that my essay, "Less of More," has been published in the winer 2016-17 edition of Bella Grace Magazine. The lovely quarterly publication has been my favorite magazine read, right alongside Martha Stewart :) , for a couple years now. Their mission statement really says it all: " We believe: An ordinary life can be extraordinary; there is beauty in imperfection, and that magic can be found in the everyday." Well, I just couldn't agree more.
