Charcuteries boards are popping up everywhere, almost everyday, as there is always something to celebrate! The centerpiece of the table, the talk of the party, what lures in the crowd; and not to mention, you’ll receive tons of compliments and inspire others to recreate versions of their own. Charcuteries boards have a beautiful aesthetic and exquisite addition to all parties and gatherings. Roughly translated,
Wellness and self-care has become a top trend in the last year or two. Promoting expensive products and treatments so that you can be your best self – from pricey boutique fitness classes to adding spirulina to your smoothie, it seems like there’s a new trend every year. Celery juice, anyone?! When I work with my health coaching clients, I break down simple habits that make a big
ey, hey! I’m Kelly Chase, founder of ChaseLife! Originally ChaseLife began as the name of my health coaching business; and over the years, as I have personally self-evolved, it has much more meaning than ever to it. I believe it is our birthright to become who we want to be, serve others, and activate joy not only within ourselves but the lives of everyone we encounter as well. To do this, we must “chase life”; consistently show up for ourselves, empower oneself to become a better version each day, & create the life he/she craves. We go first. As we go within, do the inner healing work, then we can become teachers & guide others to this freedom.
Living in the present moment decreases our levels of anxiety and depression. But what about when
someone or something gets us down in that moment? How do we make sure we continue to vibrate at
the highest level and perform our best everyday without letting outside factors lower our energy?
Why is it so scary to try something new? Some people dream of new experiences like living abroad or traveling to faraway places. Other people simply deny themselves the possibility, because they don’t want to leave the comfort of their cozy pillow at home. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why these people are so. . . scared?
Algumas pessoas têm o sonho de viver coisas novas, como morar em outro país, enquanto isso, muitas outras gostam da ideia, mas falta a coragem. Há também aquelas que, simplesmente, não entendem a possibilidade de sentir felicidade em deixar o conforto de casa e evitam, a todo custo, qualquer tipo de novidade em sua vida. Viver coisas novas é bom, mas assusta.
When we think about self-care, images of candle-lit bubble baths and luxurious face masks pop up in our minds. While that takes care of our external body and mind, we should also be taking care of our internal selves. What we eat can directly affect emotional, mental, and physical health. That’s why what we put into our body should be the foundation of a holistic self-care routine. Speaking from my own experience as a nutritionist, I’ve realized that eating healthy is the only thing that truly grounds me.
As a millennial, I grew up in the era of . . . DIETS. From counting calories to counting macros, from the Atkins diet to the Dukan diet, each one puts a focus on eliminating certain food groups (or at least marginalizing them to an extreme). Even Regina Georgia was asking, ” is butter a carb?” Hi there, fellow Mean Girls enthusiasts.
When I was growing up, my mother’s friends were going to Weight Watchers and buying daily slimming smoothies while discussing how many kilos they had lost that week. Although these diets had their benefits, the mindset behind ‘dieting’ was never a topic of discussion. It was only “burnt calories” or “pounds dropped.” The focus on physical health with minimal concern for mental health. The issue with these ‘old school’ diets is the subconscious stress it puts us under to be constantly scrutinizing every morsel touching our lips. How would our bodies respond if we took away this stress?
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a super efficient way to work out, especially when you are short on time but want to maximize your efforts. During HIIT workouts, you alternate periods of maximum effort (70-80% of max. heart rate / can barely say a few words) with periods of working rest (50-60% of max heart rate / can carry brief conversation).
Africa is a beautiful and rare destination that remains relatively untouched by the tourist masses. It has natural beauty, mixed with authentic culture and vibrant cities. It is the perfect getaway to reset, re-center and relax.
