The Self-Love Journey of Tanya Griffiths: Chasing Dreams and Letting Go of Comparison in Work and Life

The Self-Love Journey of Tanya Griffiths: Chasing Dreams and Letting Go of Comparison in Work and Life

I’ve always said, The best way we can learn is through the stories of other people. While recovering from my fight with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, and Exercise Addiction, it was the stories of other survivors that gave me the courage to be vulnerable and move on from a disorder doing nothing more than keeping me trapped [...]

The message I’d go back and give myself, and the message I want others to hear now

The message I’d go back and give myself, and the message I want others to hear now

The other night I was doing normal quarantine things like going through old boxes of school work because everyone saves past assignments and handouts, right?! I'm joking.

The Books I Read in 2019, A New Year, Slowing Down, and Making Time for The Things That Light You Up

In 2018, one of the things I set out to do in the new year was to read more. I find activities like reading and coloring a way for me to calm down, detach from the world, and still feel "productive" while resting. Yet, the activity of reading often gets pushed aside when I'm busy, tired, [...]

How Do I Maintain a Healthy Relationship with Exercise During the Holidays?

How Do I Maintain a Healthy Relationship with Exercise During the Holidays?

It's easy to make the holidays about things they weren't ever meant to be about. Thanksgiving becomes all about Black Friday shopping and Christmas becomes a whole lot of stress over gift-giving—two holidays that were never supposed to be about materialism, consumerism, or worry. During this time of year, I think it's tempting to make [...]

You Can Have Your Cake and Eat it Too: Saying Goodbye to Labels and Befriending Your Body

You Can Have Your Cake and Eat it Too: Saying Goodbye to Labels and Befriending Your Body

There are a few standout things that make me cringe, and the phrase "clean eating" is certainly one of them. Any time I hear these words, my limbic system gets triggered and it takes biting my tongue and a few deep breaths to avoid going off on a tangent to whoever is talking. In this [...]
