Save All the Plants: Benefits of House Plants

We have a bit of a problem in our house.

We are those people who cannot go shopping without “saving” a new house plant. I use the term saved loosely, as these plants didn’t really need to be rescued from anything.

Social Media Cleanse 2017

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. And to make and end is to make a beginning.”  -T.S. Eliot

For many of us social media has become a hostile and negative place. And for most of us… “hostile and negative” is an understatement!  Yet, we spend so much of our day occupied with our phones and apps, it is no wonder we are all feeling exhausted and burnt out. The APA just released a study showing how the increased use of social media is impacting our mental health.

Guess What?

It’s not good.

Join me in our Social Media Cleanse for 2017. This cleanse will be a series to help regain control of your online habits and recreate your daily experience to one of positivity and joy. The purpose isn’t to get you to stop using social media, it is to recreate the environment and redefine its purpose in your life.
