My 7 Pillars of Health


An intuitive, aligned diet rich in colorful, diverse plants such as fruits & vegetables, wholesome grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, & high-quality protein. 


Flow through empowering, motivating movement daily that evokes challenge, yet is exciting and energizing.


Enjoy filtered, mineral-rich water to hydrate on an intracellular level & bathe in moisturizing seed oils to hydrate the skin from the outside in.


Adopt tools like mindfulness and positive psychology to embrace challenge & change with ease.


Maintain supportive, uplifting relationships and cultivate connections within your community. Develop interoceptive awareness and trust within your body to tune into the signs and signals it is relaying. 


Prioritize 8 restful hours of sleep, bask in the sun, breathe deeply often, and relax when you need it. Aim to engage in daily stress-reducing activities like yoga, meditation, or self-care rituals. 


Cultivate the courage to live out your passion every day. Travel, laugh deeply, cry, have fun, fall in love, and most importantly, aim to live wildly.
