Tech is a lot like our minds. It can either be a huge asset, or a huge contributor to mental, emotional, spiritual and overall health issues.
There is however, one app I recently found that I want to share called Moody that has helped me in both mind and body acceptance on my way to reviving my happiness and wellbeing before summer.
This app is mainly for women, (although if you are male you can track your moods too:) Moody asks you to put in some key info related to your menstrual cycle that can help offer some clarity on why you may be feeling extra down, or maybe like your body has changed overnight. I know these mysteries of emotionally fluctuations, sadness, and body aches seemed like they were my fault, or I was doing something wrong for so many years when in realty the answer is that our hormones are at work each month contributing to these changes. For me, just acknowledging and staying on top of this has helped me understand, Im not just in a bad mood or sad, it's really just my hormones. Knowing that, and knowing that these changes will pass has helped me change my story and be less MOODY regardless of what time of month it is.
So if you're looking to track your moods and body more carefully for a deeper understanding and to help you on your journey to happy and well, check out the app HERE!
We all have ups and down, but knowing the story behind it can lead to greater happiness, peace and wellbeing as we ride those waves.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology over 85 Million Americans suffer from a skin disease. (Source) With skin issues on the rise, the APA has identified a link between mental health and skin issues, citing that both stress and mental health conditions can cause skin issues, and reversely, skin issues can cause stress and anxiety.
As summer approaches we want to help you revive your skin and reduce stress to help your mind, body and spirit soar.
On today's show join me and my guest Christina Edwards, owner of Oasis European Skin Care, to give real and practical ways to revive your skin and mental health just in time for the sunshine.

Happy Revival Seekers!
Yesterday was “Fat Tuesday," and I took that day seriously. In fact, the last week and a half I’ve had a hankering for cake every second of the day and a deep desire to grab a fork and literally mount a pastry case at Whole Foods. All of these things helped me realize that my sugar cravings are way out of control. For some reason this winter, even watching what I eat most days, the scale has managed to creep up. For me feeling good means SO much more than my weight. (Something I have worked hard to change.) But the reality is, I have been feeling sluggish and for me that means resetting my mind and body; just in time for SPRING!
Something that has worked for me before is the Whole 30 and I have been wanting to do the challenge since the start of the new year, so what better day to start than TODAY! And who better to do this challenge with than my Seekerhood.
SO if you’re anything like me, and want to spend some time renewing your mind and body as we head into spring (and the lenten season,) join me today as we kick off 30 days of refueling, refreshing and recentering.
All you have to do is click HERE and join our private group! We'll post daily (you can too!) and help keep one another on track! Oh and what is the Whole 30? You can check out the specifics HERE!
We will of course add our own spin on it too, like distressing help and mind enhancing fun!
Here is to living life well in mind, mood & body this spring!
