Reading Time: 6 minutes In psychology and in health coaching, there are thought patterns that can be identified that influence our decisions. These thought patterns are called cognitive distortions. In 2020, I presented on them twice, which helped me break down my own thought distortions and challenged me to consider how I talk about what I do as a […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes It doesn’t matter what your goal is, without a plan it can feel overwhelming. It can also feel very unnatural to plan things out so I understand if you’re also thinking that this post isn’t for you. Lastly, with a new year in a few days, it’s possible that you may feel like you have […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes I said it last year, but I want to elaborate – I like writing in the last moments of the year because I feel like I’m giving myself space to reflect and think about those events that impacted me most. Not forcing myself to relive everything that happened, but find those points that caused the […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes January came and went, and the spring flew by. Sometimes it feels as though we barely enjoyed summer and if you live in areas that experience extreme cold, it may already feel like fall disappeared. That’s how it feels in Massachusetts. Hoodie weather was about two weeks, give or take. The pellet stove has been […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes Self-help books don’t always sit well with me. I think there are a lot of them with good intentions, but there are so many that leave something to be desired.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Dear Cristina, I hope you’re well. By the time you’re reading this you’ve already survived your first year in your 30s. It wasn’t so scary, right? That’s kind of my hope, that it was less scary than you thought it could be even though you didn’t want to admit it. But don’t grow up too […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes When talk about getting healthy, many of us immediately think about our weight as being the ultimate tool for measuring. This is how society discusses health, but it’s really about the act of gravity and there are many other more important numbers we could examine. Weight on Mars: 51.83 pounds Weight on Earth: 137 pounds […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes There will always be some battles that are fought over, and over again. However, every time we meet the strategy will be new because we will have experience on our side. I am a different person then I was then. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books. It’s up there with The Great […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes I did a few things today after work that I don’t normally do. 1. I put on a bikini without too much thought other than will children be at the pool. I’m feeling really good about my size and after about three weeks of tracking with just my journal I’m feeling confident in my foods […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes I walked away thinking that balance isn’t what we’ve grown up to believe it is.
Our work lives bleed into our personal lives, and in many cases I think it’s appropriate.
Trying to keep the divide will just make us frustrated and feel defeated.
