Hi everyone! Going off of last week’s post about me going vegan for my 3 Months of Wellness, I wanted to do a quick secondary post on what my favorite vegan/sustainable blogs, websites, and businesses are. I personally value each of these websites and businesses, and I think that they could also bring value to your lives if you’re inspired to live a more holistic, sustainable, and vegan lifestyle! Keep reading below to see my list of faves!
Since May is the first month of my 3 months of wellness, I think one of the first things that I need to work on is my diet. Now, I’m not saying that my diet is bad; for a college student without extra money to spend on extra food, especially since I have a food plan with my sorority, my diet is decently healthy. But I have had a hard time sticking to the diet that I really want to be on. And what is that diet?

Now that school is coming to an end for the year and summer is about to begin, I decided that I wanted to start my “summer of wellness” (at least that’s what I’m calling it. Of course, these 3 months could be taken out of any time of the year, but since I’ve been so busy with university and other work (like trying to effectively run this blog) it’s hard for me to find time to focus completely on my well-being. I think that in Western culture we have the tendency to ignore personal health to get ahead in our careers or by focusing on outside aspects of life (and yes, I know, this is pretty well known in the wellness universe). I know that in my own life, with juggling school, creating a future career, and also managing a social life, I fall into the constant trap of ill-health due to stress and overworking myself. I know that I’m still going to have responsibilities this summer (like a job and two online summer courses) …
Since about September of 2017, I really started to think about if there was a way (or ways) that I could prevent future disease, while also being my healthiest self in the present. I’ve been a vegan/vegetarian for the last 3 years, depending on whether I was at university or not, but I still felt like there was something more that I could be doing.
Hey y’all! I’m finally back and on track. I know that I have been absent over the last month (seriously, basically all of March) but I promise that I now am here to stay! Things over the last month have really been crazy; I’ve mostly been handling things with my sorority and school, and honestly, I really just needed to take a mental break for myself. Over this last month, I’ve checked back in to my goals and my life, and in doing that I didn’t spend as much time writing as I did before. I feel like it would be wrong of me to be writing about health and wellness and happiness if I wasn’t in a good place personally. I want everything that I post on this blog to be authentic, and if I wasn’t at my best, then it wouldn’t be very authentic at all for me to try and help you. That’s why I took the month of March for myself to catch up on school and take the time to …
This week I’m going to keep it simple when it comes to my post because I’ve been super busy with midterms over the last two weeks and working on my freelance jobs. I didn’t want to leave y’all hanging though! So here is a quick and easy bullet journal update for March (& today’s the 1st, which is crazy!). Let me know what y’all think about this month’s layout and comment below on your own designs for this month! (I’ve also added a couple new collections as well to my bujo). I’ve added four new collections to my bullet journal after my February layout. In the first layout, I’ve decided to revisit the goals that I set for myself in 2018 and see if there were any that I wanted to change or add. I think that it’s important to put the new year in perspective after the first two months so that you know what you should really be expecting from your experience and confirm what goals are really attainable and meaningful to you. …
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about all the expectations that we are set with in our lifetime; the ones people put on us and the ones we put on ourselves.
Minimalism has been growing ever since the early-mid 2000’s as the natural health and wellness fad continued to spread, especially with the younger generation of millennials and younger. The idea of simplifying your life by first simplifying the world around you definitely has it’s appeal.
Now that we’re over a month into 2018, I wanted to talk about how the goals that we set for this year can be translated into our daily habits in a healthy and positive way.
