A couple of weekends ago, I was EXHAUSTED. I slept from 7 pm on Friday until 12 pm the next day, waking up only to feed my dog and myself. I had been pushing myself too hard, and my body was trying to tell me something. So I listened. I slept all weekend, ate what […]
As spring and summer pick up, so does my travel schedule. For everyone out there with spring breaks, wedding season, and summer vacation, this is a time when you might spend plenty of time on the road or in the sky. And even if you’re not traveling, chances are you spend a good amount of […]
I just went over three weeks without migraines. That’s the longest I’ve gone since I was in graduate school. My longest streak was actually four weeks while I was writing my thesis in the spring of 2014, go figure! The past three weeks haven’t been easy, and there have been a lot of changes. But […]

Last night, I was lucky enough to go to an awesome event on campus that was part of Arianna Huffington’s book tour for her book, Thrive. She took part in a panel to talk about mental and physical health and well-being, stress, and coping in college students, a topic that is near and dear to my […]
I’ve been suffering from migraines since 2011, and although they’ve gotten much worse since then, I think I’ve finally found a regular treatment plan and life rhythm that helps me take care of them.
