Motivation Monday: No Doubt

Summer is FULL of good vibes. There’s sunshine, outdoor activities, longer days, and for some, a bit of travel. While you could be nose deep in a beach worthy novel, toes in the sand, chilled glass of rose in hand (aaahh) there still could be a part of you that is just feeling…well for lack of a better word…blah. Sometimes I find myself (even in the best of circumstances) feeling a lack of motivation. If you’ve got it all together and have never felt this way, this post may not be for you. But for the rest of us, I […]

Motivation Monday:Always Have a Carrot

It’s easy to get wrapped up in what everyone else is doing especially in the age of scrolling through social media and the immediate reporting of what celebrities and public figures are off doing and jet setting to. You see the extravagant vacations and remote places people are traveling to but not the daily check-ins at the office, hours spent in traffic, meetings, early morning wake-up calls, and penny pinching that is going on behind the scenes. We’ve all been told it’s important to worry about ourselves and focus on what we are doing as opposed to others. While this […]

Motivation Monday: Fathers, Modern Day Heroes

This Motivation Monday is dedicated to some pretty important people that motivate us to be our best selves. It’s Monday, the start to a fresh week and one where we get to pay homage to the modern day heroes in our lives, dads. Fathers, mentors, husbands, brothers, uncles, there are many forms of what a father can mean to someone and it is something that is unique to each person. We would be in a very different place if we didn’t have these special men in our lives. It’s crucial to have a solid figure you can turn to when […]

Motivation Monday: The Power of Music

Happy Monday everyone! The start of the week is a great opportunity to set some goals and add an intention to set the tone for your week. I was feeling a little overwhelmed on Saturday morning thinking of all the errands, homework, research, laundry, etc. I was trying to accomplish before I was due to my Pilates studio lesson. I knew I would be in class for 5 hours so I was trying to make the morning as productive as possible. I noticed my anxiousness and in result tried to slow down and see what I could do to prioritize […]

Wellness Wednesday: Everyone Does It, So Lets Talk About It

Today’s post can be viewed as a little TMI for some, but I’ve had enough friends ask my opinion on the subject to feel it’s a topic many can relate to. What’s the healthiest, most effective form of hair removal? Am I an expert? Not really. But I do have years of experience trying different methods and feel this familiarity has me well-read on the topic enough to give an educated opinion. I will try to keep it simple, even though this can be a complex topic with many points of view. I’ve listed the top ways of hair removal […]

Motivation Monday: Set Yourself Up To Fail

We need to get comfortable with the idea of failing in order to achieve something that is extraordinary or worthwhile. Most of the great pioneers of our time were not told they were doing something practical or were sure to succeed. In reality, they were met with apprehension and criticism (think the Wright brothers, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, etc). In order to succeed at something of that magnitude, something others haven’t accomplished yet, you need to get into the mindset of setting yourself up to potentially fail. I have taken a few risks, some have paid off, some not so much. […]

Motivation Monday: SELF less CARE

I’m not sure where along the way it became perceived as selfish, but the mere thought of doing something for yourself seems hard to justify. Why is that? I wrote an earlier post on balance and how important it is for your overall health. In fact, the whole mantra of MSF is all about the connection between mind, body, and spirit for health. Not just taking care of your physical well being but your spiritual and mental health because it all connects…neglect one and the rest suffers. I view self care as not only selfless, but something that is necessary and […]

Motivation Monday: Facing Your Fears

This past week I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and take into account where I am and where I’d like to be. I think this is so important to do from time to time, no matter where you’re at in your career/life, how old you are, etc. Even if you believe you’re ‘satisfied’, doing a temperature check once in awhile is never a bad thing. I wish I could remember the source to site it here, but I remember listening to a podcast a while back and during the interview someone referenced music and how the simple act […]

Motivation Monday: Cheers to 30 Years

It’s going to be tough to keep this short and sweet because this past weekend was spectacular…and to give it the credit it deserves will be tough to wrap up in a few paragraphs (but I will try to keep it simple!). Since Mondays are all about spirit on MSF and feeding that spirit with motivation, inspiration and drive for overall wellness, I thought this past weekend I spent celebrating turning 30 with some of my favorite humans is very fitting. There is nothing more fulfilling than being around those that build you up, create a positive atmosphere and love […]
