How to Make this Christmas Pot-Pourri

The smell of Christmas is a very distinct one. For me, it’s evergreens, boxes containing old Christmas ornaments, hot chocolate, and Christmas scented candles. This pot-pourri is bound to bring back old Christmas memories as well as make some new ones. It’s simple to make and the ingredients are probably things you have on hand anyway! So while you get ready to put up your tree and wrap presents put a pot of this on the stove!

Living Life After Therapy

Therapy and the idea of going to therapy is a lot more commonplace and a lot less stigmatized than it used to be. Everyone from Carrie Bradshaw to the Kardashians has a therapist they march to whenever life gets crazy. But what happens when you’ve been seeing your therapist for a while? Is there life after therapy or do you just stay there forever? I’ve recently started on my journey of life after therapy and I wanted to talk a little about what therapy is, what it isn’t, and what life after looks like.

25 Ways to Survive Your Time in Home Quarantine

Truthfully, I had something completely different planned to write about today. I often plan topics a year in advance and change things up once the day gets near.

Just because we’re being asked (or in some cases told) to either work from home or isolate doesn’t mean that it has to be horrible. Considering I naturally enjoy my time at home, I’m going to share with you how this has affected me as well as some great tips to keep your mind and body (and even social life) alive. Hopefully, you’ll look back on this time as a moment you were able to grow as a person rather than wasting it just playing games or watching TV.
