I love the month of October. I want every month to be October. Leaves, pumpkins, earthy vibrant colors, crisp air, firewood, boots, cinnamon candles. I’ve always loved Fall. I know Fall in Texas is not the stereotypical Fall we all think of, but I love it just the same. My dream is to live someplace where Fall is real 🙂 I would throw leaves around and lay in them while sipping on a cup of pumpkin spice coffee, a roaring bonfire would be burning in the distance and I would listen to the sounds of the crackle all evening. BUT…For now I’ll enjoy Texas Fall and pretend there is crispness in the air.
Did you know? There is actually research showing that your season of birth affects your mood and temperament development. While many things affect our moods – seasons are definitely at the top of the list according to recent studies. Whooda thunk it. Maybe that is why I feel most alive in Fall!!
Nutrition school has been UH MAZE ING!! I will write a comprehensive post soon on the many ways and reasons I love the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and their mission. Starting this program in January of 2018 was a huge leap for me. I had every reason to say “not now”, but I went for it, and do not regret one second. The information I’ve gained and the people I’ve met has been life-changing. I know that sounds really BIG right? Life Changing? I say this with much confidence. My perspective and opinion of Nutrition and how it fuels our lives in more ways than just the food on our plate has opened me up to understand the psychology behind not only our food choices, but EVERY choice we make in life. I will officially be complete with my program study in December, but I’m going into the most intense time of wrapping up so….I’m buckling in for a busy next few months. If you want to talk Nutrition. Hit me up. It may be a long convo 🙂
