Find Your Flow in Life

Think back to an experience when you’ve felt completely “in the zone” and “one” with what you were doing. That feeling where you were so immersed and absorbed in the activity that you lost track of time. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the author of “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience,” has described this state as “flow” where [...]

The Big Rub Down: Massage and Its Health Benefits

One of my favorite indulgences, especially after logging a lot of hours at my desk, at the gym and on the road in my car, is to get a nice deep tissue sports massage. I believe that getting a massage isn’t just about being pampered and relaxing at the spa—it comes with a long list [...]

Mindfulness – What you Need to Know

It seems like everyone and their mother is talking about mindfulness these days. It’s certainly a new buzz word, but the practice is far from new dating all the way back to religious practices in the BC era. So, why is it all the craze? Studies have found that mindfulness creates awareness and calmness, as [...]

Fishy Business…Why You Should Be Eating Wild Caught Fish!

One of my favorite sources of lean protein that I talk about extensively in the Strong Girl Nutrition Guide is fish! Fish is one of the healthiest and tastiest foods you can eat because it is loaded with important nutrients like protein and vitamin D. Fish is also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, [...]

The High Heel Effect

High heels provide the perfect boost of confidence when we want to match them with our outfit for girls’ night out, look taller for that super hot date, or look like a Girl Boss in that big meeting at the office. Why is it, however, that my cutest pair of heels are also the most [...]
