My modified Miracle Morning routine
A couple of years ago, I read The Miracle Morning — a super motivational book about creating positive life changes by adopting a consistent morning routine. The author, Hal Elrod, describes how he picked six activities commonly considered the most effective self-help practices — meditation, affirmations, visualization, reading, journaling, and exercise — and began doing them in the morning, immediately after waking up, for just ten minutes each. That meant he was spending the first hour of his day on his own personal growth and development.
Thoughts on privilege
Those of us who are interested in spirituality cannot call ourselves enlightened if we turn a blind eye to injustice and inequity in the world. We cannot be agents for truth and compassion while simultaneously ignoring the ways that racism continues to have a very real influence in our society and institutions.

My review of the ProLon fasting mimicking diet
Would you give up food for 5 days if it could improve your health? There are numerous benefits to fasting, but water or juice fasts are extremely difficult to stick to — not to mention they can be dangerous if not done correctly. Fortunately, other methods of fasting offer the same benefits without requiring you to completely give up food. Now there’s a newer fasting diet that’s garnering a lot of attention: the ProLon fasting mimicking diet. I recently had the opportunity to try it.
7 life lessons from 2016
I switched planners today, because I’m a nerd like that and I didn’t want to wait until January 1st to start using my beautiful new 2017 Inkwell Press Planner. As I was flipping through my 2016 planner to make sure anything important was transferred over, I found a page in the back that I had titled “Life Lessons,” which I had completely forgotten about, but on which I had written down a few things I had learned throughout the year.
