How Meditation has Changed My Life

What would you do if I told you that sitting between 10-20 minutes with your eyes shut and breathing could make you able to handle problems faster, be worried and stressed less, be less angry, make you smarter, and able to understand what you really want out of life? That’s what this post is all about. As a skeptic, I wasn’t sure how meditation could help me with my problems. It seemed too simple, but now I meditate most days first thing in the morning. I hope to explain what my experience has been and how it’s changed my life for the better.

How We are Celebrating Thanksgiving During the Pandemic

I like to go all out for Thanksgiving. I like to make the turkey, stuffing, pies, the whole thing.

In this post, I’m going to share how Amin and I are celebrating Thanksgiving and making it more intimate, more loving, and way more thankful than it’s ever been.

A Pumpkin Honey Face Mask for All Skin Types

I believe I’ve said this multiple times, but if you’re new to my blog, I’ll say it again. New England winters are HARSH!!! Brutal even. Don’t get me wrong, fall is gorgeous, summer is beautiful, and spring is magical with all the colors slowly blooming in nature until one day everything is lush and green and colorful. Winter, however, is cold and no matter how I try to protect my face the dry air eventually causes it to dry out, which means my cheeks can flake they get so dry and my brown and the middle of my face gets overly oily in an attempt to compensate for the dryness. I was so happy to find this festive face mask packed with skin-soothing ingredients that are sure to have you soft and balanced again.
