Hello World!

by Thrive Now Nutrition

Welcome to my blog!

We’re all running so fast in pursuit of building our dreams. It is so easy for stress and fatigue to compromise our decisions and influence how we will (or won’t) take care of our selves in a given day, let alone the present moment.

Somewhere in between good intentions and reality, personal or professional obligations can pull us away from feeling and performing at our personal best. This blog is dedicated to redirecting our energies and channeling the side of us that’s alive and determined to thrive, right now.

A seasoned foodie, holistic nutrition zealot and self-care advocate, I will be sharing nourishing tips, nutritional bytes, (sustainable) food for thought, impressions (mine and others) on the expanding landscape of Integrative health and self-care, along with my favorite healthy things.

Whatever is on your plate, food-wise or metaphorically speaking in life, there are opportunities all day long to refuel and energize for the tasks that lie ahead. Of course we are all busy and quite often we barely have to time to rev the engine or to reset our course if we get up on the wrong side of the bed. This blog is designed to provide inspiration for living well this very minute.

Every small positive step begins to manifest your optimal, ultimate self-expression.

Every nutrient-dense meal, each nourishing deep breath, smile, water break, unsolicited call to a friend, kind word to your kids when you would rather scream, each effort to be less of a perfectionist and instead be your own greatest supporter resets in motion a force to be reckoned with, which will change your mood, the tone of your day and the likelihood that in spite of it all, you might defeat the odds and experience the best day ever.

How about a cup of green tea and a few bites of a luxury dark chocolate to celebrate the idea that being our ultimate selves is merely a series of smart choices. Indulge in one, now!

One minute mini-relaxation. Everyone has a minute! Place your hand on your navel so you can feel the gentle rise and fall of your belly as you breathe. Breathe in slowly. Pause for a count of 3. Breathe out. Pause for a count of 3. Do this for a minute. Or, sit at computer. Take a few slow deep breaths… Breathe in and think “I am” and “at peace” as you breathe out.  Repeat 2-3 times and feel your entire body relax into your chair.

Are you thriving now? Why wait!

Yours in well being,
