I Went to a Salt Cave and It Cured My Cold

This winter, I got hit with one of the worst colds I’ve ever had. I was sick for legitimately a month. The first wave of sickness resulted in me staying home from work for a week, and once I thought I was better, it turned out I got sick again and once more stayed home for another week. When I finally got better, however, I still had coughing fits that made me wheeze and tear up. It was as though the slightest trace of dust triggered me to cough uncontrollably. At this point, I had also tried all sorts of medicine to cure my symptoms from Theraflu and NyQuil when I was sick to Mucinex to ease my cough, and even Flonase, thinking this could be allergies. When nothing was working, I decided to look toward a natural remedy and came across a promising solution: halotherapy. Continue reading “I Went to a Salt Cave and It Cured My Cold”

I Did the 1 Thing That Scared Me

They say you should do one thing every day that scares you, and if I know one thing for sure about myself it’s that I hate to be in a position where I am brand new and need to figure things out. The one particular scenario that scared me most were workout classes. I used to psych myself out with dreaded thoughts like, “What if I can’t keep up” or “What if I look dumb,” and completely refused to try out any class, until one day I had another thought: what if all of this is just in my head?

I Went a Whole Month Without Drinking for #DryJanuary. This Is What I Learned

This year, I did what I used to think was impossible: I went a whole month without drinking. Dry January (also called “Dryuary”) is a tradition that originated in the United Kingdom as a way to get people to drink less into the beginning of the new year, which is great because most people may have been drinking a little too much during the holidays. People around the world have began doing this, and it’s become an albeit annoying social media hashtag, but I’m not hear to preach about how I’m so self-righteous for not drinking. This is what I learned about myself over the past 31 days: Continue reading “I Went a Whole Month Without Drinking for #DryJanuary. This Is What I Learned”

What I Learned From Moving Across the Country

Hello, dear reader. First off: Happy New Year. I know it’s been a while since I have made post, but this is the reason why: I moved across the country. The second half of 2018 was just a whirlwind of good, bad, and everything in-between. It’s been a few months in this new city and I am still adjusting. A move of this magnitude is never easy for anyone. Here’s what I have learned from the last few months since being here: Continue reading “What I Learned From Moving Across the Country”
