4 Ways to Make Your Period More Bearable | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

Over the last several months I have been doing a lot of research about hormone balance, maintaining healthy weight, using food to manage depression and more. Not so surprisingly, I found from many sources that so much of what happens in our bodies is linked and interconnected. Did you know that your cycle is considered a vital sign? Now I am learning it is very important to pay attention to my cycle not just when I am having my period. And I have also learned there are things I can do to minimize the unfavorable symptoms like mood swings or cramp or breakouts.

Who knew?

Rise | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

A new day requires new encouragement. I believe so many of us start out with intentions of being positive and ridding ourselves of fear and self doubt– but then circumstances come. Sometimes we are so focused on circumstances, we are unable to see a clear path from where we currently are, to where we know we want to be.

I tweeted something recently:

If we can change our perspective, we can find ourselves fueled by faith and self-love rather than fear and self-doubt.

I created my most recent podcast– Rise Up to remind all of us (myself included) that if we have breath in our bodies, we have a mission that is not complete. I hope it encourages you!

Potapas Gluten-free Tortillas Giveaway

Hey healthy bunnies,

Happy Monday!

I have some good news– I have an awesome and easy giveaway contest for you to participate in.


I started using Potapas tortillas more than 6 months ago when I found them at Sprouts. The neat thing is they are low in carbs, no sugar, gluten free, and contain no nuts, soy or corn. I have a ton of food allergies and it is so incredible to have an option when I get tired of romaine or collard wraps. Made primarily of potato– they lack nothing in flavor and substance, and to me taste better than flour tortillas.

I loved them so much that I wanted you all to have a chance to try them. The amazing owner of Potapas has agreed to give away two (2) prize packs which will include a total of four (4) packs of tortilla– a mix  of potato and sweet potato.

See the link below to see the contest and rules!

Good luck!

5 Tips for Slaying Your Monday

I’m sure you have heard someone complain about Monday in some way, or maybe you have yourself. Usually the complaint is the weekend is too short, or that tiredness is an issue. Monday is 1/7 of every week for the rest of our lives, so the complaining kind of gets old!

How can we get to a place where we set ourselves up for success and start out the week strong? Not to worry–I’ve got some tips for you to make it a lot more bearable.

1. Start out with gratitude. Gratefulness is the best attitude changer ever. Wake up a little earlier and make a list of all you are grateful for and see how you set your day to receive abundance. Get creative with it! I am even grateful for things I have prayed for that are yet to happen.

2. Plan out your week. Devote a little time on Saturday or Sunday to set yourself up for success during the week. This could be any number of things–doing laundry, meal prepping, checking your email to make an action item list, etc.

The idea is to make life easier for yourself. Become your own executive assistant for a moment: what needs to be done, and what will it take to do it? I find the Wunderlist app to be extremely helpful for my action items list, while others may prefer pen and paper or sticky notes. Find a system you can can stick to, and be willing to change if it is no longer effective for you.

3. Eat a rockstar breakfast. You deserve it! Breakfast is still the most important meal of the day.

If you choose a meal that is vibrant, nourishing, and tasty– it can really boost your mood and give you energy. My go-to is often a smoothie, but it really depends on how much time I have. My breakfast favorites should give you some inspiration to make your own rockstar meal.

4. Listen to motivational podcasts. I honestly never thought I would turn into my dad and start listening to talk radio, but now as an adult I cannot get enough. I love listening to podcasts in the car or while getting ready, but I also listen during my work day too. Many shows can be very insightful for life improvement tips, or stimulating as they shed light on subjects in a new way. Have you listened to my podcast yet? I happen to have one about Mondays!

5. Pick out your outfit before you go to bed. Even if you plan to spend the day in yoga pants tomorrow, this can save you a ton of time.

Maybe you plan to exercise first thing in the morning. If you pick out your outfit ahead of time, you’ll recognize if your favorite workout pants for cycling are actually still dirty or if your favorite workout socks have been misplaced. There is nothing more annoying to me than spending a ridiculous amount if time trying to figure out what I will wear, yet I do care about style. What usually happens is I usually end up running late and my bedroom looks like a tornado hit it! I’ve got two hooks on the wall inside my closet, and I hang my outfit there so I am ready to go in the morning.

I hope you found these tips helpful. What tips do you have for making it a successful Monday?

Now, get out there and slay your Monday!
