Channel into discovery

  On my way back home from the holiday trip this year, I treated myself to a little inspiration packed in the shape of a magazine (two of them to be exact). I always seem to be drawned to OK! And People Magazine, but this time of the year… I needed a little more umph […]

Call me Grandma Moses

At a memorial service, a couple of weeks ago, I bumped into an old friend from school. We talked about the trivial stuff of life and then we started talking about our new found selves. He has become his own man, a very generous one I found out that day, and while I was sharing […]

Nature vs Nurture

The eternal psychological debate about the why a person comes to be successful can sometimes be reduced in a simple dilemma: are we born with it or are raised to become successful? It has been a wonderful experience to recognize both spectrums of this hypothesis. On one hand, you have the people who have had […]

Clean Eating

The fact that there are over 38 million hits on google server when you type in the search engine: “clean eating”, makes me ponder about this huge dietary movement going on. As a student of nutrition, major aficionado on health and wellness and, happy cook, I look forward to yummier habits everyday. Thousands of books […]

Anatomy of a Health Coach

With more than 2,000 people attending (and other thousands live streaming) the IIN conference, I felt chills all over. We all held our palms over our heads, our mouths and our hearts and… next thing I know, the lyrics of “Living on a prayer” became a mantra the thousands of us sang to and we […]

A newborn artist!

Even though life seems to be hard at times, I tend to forget that healing is always an inside job. However, recurring to nature’s very own Prozac (free and wonderfully effective) seems to be out of reach and thousands of miles away. How convenient. In the past month or so, I took back the reigns […]

Life matters

I’ve always been a huge fan of SJP’s ability of writing (as the amazing Carrie Bradshaw). She seemed to be right on spot in matters regarding fashion and friendship… relationships and emotional issues were not her forté (that’s just me). So, in more ways than one, her talented devotion towards her macbook and the pursuit […]

Looking ahead or dwelling on the past…

My mentor shared once that people have the ability to rekindle on harsh or painful memories in a fraction of a second, but when encountered with the question of “where are you going to be two years from now?”, we balk. It is astounding at how we manage to live so intensely in the past […]

A cleansing date

One of the biggest challenges I encountered at the beginning of my path of self discovery was sitting with myself, without TV or any white noise in the back. I could hardly grab a book or just sit with myself to meditate. As of the last 6 years or so, I met this very interesting […]
