Self-care is everywhere these days. And it should be. Self-care is incredibly important, especially during a time when the world is inside out and upside down. But as someone who has worked in this industry for a decade I can tell you there are some real problems with how self-care Read more…
How’s your posture right now?
Do you remember your drive in to work today?
What did your lunch taste like?
How many of those questions are things you didn’t even think about until you read the words?
We spend so much of our time in mindless routine, thinking the same thoughts and preforming the same actions and we don’t even realize it.
Mindful eating is a way to change that. By becoming fully present in such a mundane activity, we can habituate ourselves differently.
Food is more than nourishment. It had a look, a feel, a taste, a smell, and a sound. And by engaging all of your senses in the consumption of your food you can change your world just by training yourself to truly perceive it.(more…)
Time for another Sunday round up! This week we get to see the infant sleep schedule, check out a new study about midwifery, and I’m sorry but we’re getting a little political.
Today’s round up includes a humorous look at why humans eat poisonous things, toxic positivity, and the forward leaning inversion as well as an exciting massage update for the clinic!(more…)
November is upon us and the first snows have fallen!
I am currently sitting here this Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and my favorite sweater and fleece lined leggings (and a bit of French silk pie because I am an awful example for healthy breakfasts).
This week breastfeeding became legal in all 50 states which is a huge, if incredibly delayed) win! Check out this and other things I found on the wide and scary internet in this week’s Sunday round up!
One month ago, Reverie was a different clinic that it is now.
I had a small, community acupuncture practice in the yoga studio of Health Foundations Birth Center in St Paul, Minnesota, where I treated patients twice a week.
It was amazing. It still is (because community acupuncture treatments are continuing) but Reverie is getting bigger. One month ago, I decided to expand my practice to the Naturally Well space in White Bear Lake and that started a cascade of things that has kept me from regular updates. But now that things are settling down once again, I figured it was time for a recap.
Parenthood changes your life in ways you cannot predict and one of the places you need to protect the most is your own self-care. Your new kiddo needs you and you will put a lot of your needs aside to take care of them. But you can’t pour from an empty cup; you need to give some things back to yourself so that you can be properly present for them.
Hey, wow. A third Sunday round-up. This might actually become a thing!
Is anyone else notoriously bad at saying you want to start doing a thing and then not doing it? It can’t just be me.
Anyway, this Sunday round up includes bed-sharing while breastfeeding, a local man working for big change, seed cycling, and my favorite bibimbap recipe that’s nourishing for your body AND your budget.
My last theory-heavy post for the month is going to be on the disharmonies of the Lung system. Like with the post on Liver disharmonies, I am going to discuss common patterns with the Lung system and what they might look like from a Western perspective as well as some general advice for preventing or coping with lung disharmonies.
Time for the second ever Sunday round up! This week I found an awesome video debunking the alpha male myth, a fascinating article about vaginal fluid transfers as a treatment for bacterial vaginosis, and some healing rituals for grief, the emotion of the season.
