How to Take a Real Break

Some of us may have gotten this whole “taking a break” thing a bit wrong.

Getting Comfortable With Your Own Self-Care

What in the world is self-care anyway?

I mean, are we talking candle-lit bubble baths here? Sitting with our feet up while dipping luscious red strawberries in creamy dark chocolate? Body massages with fragrant essential oils…?

Mompreneurs: How to Overcome New Business Overwhelm

I completely understand and relate to the feeling of overwhelm starting a new business brings. Sometimes we begin to second guess our ability to pull it off, especially while our kids are still home.
