Run towards your true self: Embracing authenticity while chasing your goals


Hi! I am so glad you’ve stopped by. I hope you enjoy reading about my mindful approach to health & wellness. I believe health and wellness isn’t about your physique or what size clothes you wear. It incorporates your body, mind, & spirit. I will write about all the tools I have used in my own journey, which includes but not limited to:  nutrition, yoga, running, meditation, and mindfulness. I am passionate about all these modalities because they worked for me. I suffered for many years with anxiety, depression, various GI issues, autoimmune disorders, and it was when I started incorporating all of the tools I write about on my blog, through which I healed both internally, externally, and energetically.

I believe once we are content and feel at peace in the inside, the outside will reflect that inner calm. Everything falls into place. Nutrition, exercise, and emotional well-being. It will all come together. My articles and coaching are both a reflection of my real life experiences, both past & present. Please join me and let’s share in this journey together!  ♥  Brooke
