“According to the National Science Foundation, the average person has about 12,000 to 60,00 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before and about 80% negative. What we tell ourselves on an ongoing basis reflects not only the way we think but how we feel and act.” (Psychology Today) Ultimately, it is up to you to ignore those negative thoughts taking up space in your mind!
Recently, I have been dealing with severe back pain. What did I do? I saw a doctor and have been doing physical therapy to strengthen my back and having massages to loosen my tight muscles.

By prioritizing my health, I can be a better mom, DEI Professional, coach, podcaster, and wife. Life is too short not to properly take care of yourself.
