35 // Daily Gratitude Practice + Why/How It Substantially Increases Your Happiness

July 2, 2020

A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles! Have you seen other women talk about doing a daily gratitude practice and wondered "What's up with that? Does it really make you happier?" The answer is YES, because what we focus on, is what expands in our lives.  Join me as I walk you through exactly HOW I do my daily gratitude practice, hint hint, it's deeper than just writing down a few generic things you're grateful for, and why/how this creates a ripple effect to bring more happiness into your life.

XOXO, Lauren

32 \\ Supplements to Simplify Nutrition? Why & How You Can Use Them to Improve Your Nutrition & Energy + The 3 I Swear By

June 22, 2020

Wondering if supplements could help you or not? Supplements are easily misunderstood today, and often given a bad rap.  So often I hear women say, I want to get all my nutrients from eating my food, but the reality is we are a nutrient deficient society (hello processed food) and our unprocessed food doesn't have the same amount of nutrients in it that it once did. Supplements are there to bridge that gap!  In this episode, I'm sharing the 3 supplements I use on a daily basis, why I sear by them, and how they can simplify and improve your nutrition and energy to support your busy mom life! 

XOXO, Lauren
