Push Beyond

When was the last time you pushed yourself beyond what you thought you were capable of? How did you feel when you emerged on the other side? I always use the example of running a marathon and you are probably over it. But, please bare with me. It’s the ultimate example of pushing one’s self beyond the physical, mental, and emotional comforts we are accustomed to. You have to keep going through the physical pain and battle with your brain whether or not you can will yourself to keep going. Toss in emotions and the physical pain can either diminish […]

How to Keep Up With Your Summer Goals

Can’t we take a break from our goals during summer? It’s time to relax, enjoy the long days, and to be honest, it’s too hot to really do anything. Sitting next to a fan or being at the beach seems to be the only viable options to surviving the heat. Thinking about goals in the heat becomes a distant memory because you’re sleepy, thirsty, and overall fatigued.

Here are 5 reasons to use SPF, like every day even when it’s cloudy and rainy. Because You Really Don’t Want Skin Cancer, Ever The. most. serious. type. of. skin. cancer. There’s […]

Top Summer Deodorants

Deodorant is a necessity, not an option for the pure sake of your fellow human beings. Summer is in full swing and it’s time to take into consideration that we will all be sweaty beasts at one point or another. Mainstream deodorant has gotten a bad rap in that past because of aluminum which is thought to cause cancer.
