It took me a long time, many years after I started my yoga practice, before I got into meditation. I struggled, and struggled, and struggled. My mind never got quiet, my body never stopped moving and I thought I simply wasn't capable of meditating. Until I started using tools. Suddenly meditation came to me and I realized I could actually be still and quiet my mind. These are my favorite meditation tools.

A racing heartbeat, sweaty hands, dizziness, muscle tension, pressure on the chest, the feeling you might faint: these can all be symptoms of an upcoming anxiety attack. Many people struggle with this, and I've had my fare share of anxiety attacks, too. Today I'm sharing my favorite essential oils to reduce anxiety and feel calmer, instantly.

We all know the feeling: the one day everything flows and we're high on life, but the next day we feel like everything little thing is too much and we feel we've burned up all our energy. This is what happened to me last week, when, suddenly, my body started doing strange things. While waiting for the results from my medical tests to come in, all I could do was to stop, and rest. Today, I'd like to you to know that you're not alone.

I know. You’re busy, you’ve got tons of things to do, it's hectic at work, you want to see your friends, be a good partner, have a clean house, and stay healthy and fit. You want it all. But how about if I’d tell you that me-time is often the best thing you can give to yourself? Try practicing saying “no” and check in with yourself after a busy day at work. What do you really need today? How can you relax and unwind? These are my favorite things to do.

I'm fascinated by the female body, our cycles, our connection with the moon, our hormones and the role they play in our overall health. It all started after recovery, when my hormones were completely out of wack and I was in desparate need of advice on how to help balance my hormones again. I turned to books, many books, and I read and re-read some of them many times. These are still my favorite books on women's health.
