One Week in Costa Rica

Last week I spent the week with a group of university students who were spending their reading week doing community service-learning in the small community of Quizarra, Costa Rica.

2018 is My Year to Thrive

I really love this time of year. It's a time for new beginnings and looking ahead to the future. As I do each year, I took some time to sit down and reflect on the past year and write down my goals for the new year. 

Taking the Long Way Home

Last night, I had nothing in my schedule. I had the whole night to myself. Originally, I had planned on just biking home, jumping on the couch and not really moving for the rest of the night (it was my first night off in what felt like a long time, I was damn well going to spend it any way I wanted!). But instead, I changed my route.

Exercise and Mental Health

I don't know about you, but when I get stressed, overwhelmed, upset, or just a general feeling of being down, the last thing I want to do is exercise. When in reality, the first thing I need to do is get my body moving!
