MY FAVORITE WAYS TO KICK THE WINTER BLUES
Move & Groove
Exercise pumps up your endorphins, your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters.
Movement supports a sense of well-being, while flushing away any residue from the holidays and BOOSTS the immune system!
One of my most favorite and inexpensive ways to relieve stress, get my heart pumping and tone up is jumping on my rebounder. You can find these on Amazon and in sporting good stores (and find options with stability bars).

Experiment with what type of exercise works for you and GET MOVING!
Support your Vitamin D levels
Vitamin D plays major roles in:
- Immune function
- Heart health
- Joint health
- Manages blood pressure
- Oral health
- Mental health (as low levels are linked to depression and anxiety)
- Supports weight management
Ways to increase your Vitamin D levels:
- Eat fatty, cold-water fish like salmon and sardines
- Get out in the sun (yes, even in these cold months)!!
- Consider supplementation-here is my favorite online source for high quality supplements
I hear it over and over again around this time of year 'I'm on a detox cleanse'.
Yes, it is a wonderful time to move away from the overindulgence of the holiday season. But please remember this beauty, DON'T STARVE YOURSELF!
During the winter, your body needs and craves heartier foods rich in high quality protein and essential fatty acids. You need food to maintain immune function, hormonal balance and energy.
Take the time to nourish your body through warming soups and stews. Start your day with a boost of protein through eggs or a superfood smoothie. Challenge yourself and see how many colors you can incorporate through veggies and fruits through the day.
Between you and me, no one wants to be around someone who is 'Hangry'.
Don't skimp on this essential foundation for life!
Emails, projects and everything can wait until the morning.
Give yourself permission to rest and restore for at least 7 hours!
