Not so fast. In today’s world, I think there is a lot more ‘believing is seeing’ going on. Especially when it comes to people’s core beliefs and opinions.importance-of-challenging-your-beliefs

More and more I see people closing their minds to other perspectives and differing ideas because of their dogmatic beliefs that their way or their understanding is correct.

Top Five Thrive Market Products [$500 Giveaway!]

[This giveaway is CLOSED. Scroll to the bottom for the winner!]

A few weeks ago I announced my new ambassadorship with Thrive Market. As a refresher, Thrive is one of the largest online purveyors of healthy living and health food products on the web.

Heaven To Me

[Last day to enter my REB Brand Clothing giveaway!]

Aside from writing some really cool articles that take a new spin on the world of health and fitness on his blog, he also is a pretty fun tweeter! He’s always coming up with the best hashtags and often they start trending around the country. Silly things like #RuinARomanticMomentIn4Words or #AwkwardGreetingsIn5Words! I always can look to his tweets for a laugh and a smile.

Redefining Compliments

You look great.

How often do you hear this? Either on the receiving end or just in everyday conversation. It seems to be everyone’s go to compliment. Especially if you’ve recently lost weight, toned up, or got in shape. Never mind how you got there….maybe you were sick with the stomach flu for a week, maybe you’ve been KILLING yourself non stop at the gym, maybe you’ve been skipping meals. Regardless, you’re being told you look great. So it’s all worth it right?
