Hi, I’m Meg, and I’m obsessed with making wellness more inclusive, accessible, + honest.
When it comes to wellness, sorting the good stuff from the BS can feel like a full-time gig, and then you still have to actually, you know, do the work.
Eat well, work out, hydrate, meditate, take your meds, wash your face, moisturize, meal prep, sleep, repeat.
Oh yeah, and then you also have a life with a family and friends and work and hobbies and maybe also a cat or something, too.
Yeah, it’s a lot.
At the end of the day, there’s no getting around the fact that taking care of your health and well-being takes work.
But there are ways to simplify all the ~stuff~ involved in helping you feel better.
Designing simple wellness practices that fit your life – not the other way around? That’s kind of my thing.
Oh yeah, and let’s get one more thing straight: If you have a body and a brain, wellness is for you.
Not perfect diet/ perfect skin/ perfect body/ perfect life ~wellness~ (because that isn’t real), but this: Feeling strong, confident, and at peace with yourself, mind, body, and all – that’s for you.
Let’s do the work to get you there, okay?
6 Things You Should Know About Me
It’s always a good idea to know a person’s background and biases before you take their advice. In the spirit of transparency, here are a few things about me that should give you a better idea of what I’m about.
1| I’ve been a vegetarian since sixth grade
I don’t care what anyone else eats (although we can def chat if you’re curious about going plant-based!) But just a heads up: I’m not a great resource for, like, grilled chicken recipes. (Grilled cheese, though? I have a lot of opinions.)
2| I don’t believe in diets
I’ve dealt with anorexia, bulimia, compulsive over-exercising, and everything in between. After ≈15 years of disordered eating drama (and hard-earned recovery), I don’t diet and I definitely won’t promote restriction, fad diets, “clean eating,” or anything else designed to make you feel bad about yourself and hurt your body.
These days, I’m all about mindful, intuitive eating and fun, feel-good movement. (I would love to get you on board, too!)
3| I’m a low-key yoga girl
I started practicing yoga as a 10-year-old with chronic back pain (yep, that’s a thing). Since then, I’ve taken a handful of yoga classes, read through Rachel Brathen’s Yoga Girl more times than I can count, and fallen in love with aerial yoga. Inversions (and Child’s Pose) are my happy place, and casual yoga is a huge part of my life. I don’t think yoga can fix all your problems, but I do think it’s worth trying if you’re working toward a happier body and mind.
4| I started this blog as a mental health journal
I started this blog in early 2018 to track my mental health recovery and provide resources for people struggling with their mental health. Since then, I’ve learned that so much of your mental health is dependent on your physical health (and vice versa). What I’m hoping to build now is a collection of holistic, reliable resources to help you feel more confident taking charge of your health – mind, body, and all.
5| I’m not a mommy blogger (but I do work with kids)
I’m not a parent, but I have worked in the early childhood field for about ten years. I’m currently a nanny to a sweet, funny (and very weird) 2-year-old girl, and I love sharing ways you can support your child’s physical and emotional health.
6| I’m a huge psych nerd
I graduated with a BA in Psychology, which means that (1) People think my degree is useless, (2) I really, really hate fake “psych facts,” and (3) I like my wellness info to be evidence-based and empathetic. (I hope you do, too!)
