Simple practices for everyday wellness.

We live in a chaotic world. Not only that, our environments are filled with harmful toxins and every day something that was once thought healthy could now kill you while you sleep. It’s enough to make you want to move to a cabin in the woods to live out the rest of your days as a hermit in blissful silence.

But you can’t do that.

You’ve got work. And a partner. Plus those kids are so darn cute and you have put a lot of effort into them … (Why must they want to go to so many places and have so many things???) Plus a home to manage.

Oh yeah, then there’s you.

On top of all the things you need to do for other people, there’s all the stuff you should be doing for yourself. Eating healthy. Exercising regularly. Getting enough water, sleep, self-care. Brunch dates with girlfriends. Brushing your hair.

But right now you’re lucky if you get 2 minutes in the bathroom by yourself without someone barging in and asking for help (or to show you their latest Lego creation).

You’d love to have time for ALL the things, but for now you really do feel lucky when you get 2 minutes in the bathroom for yourself.

Are you ready for your wellness to be more of a priority?

I believe that you can feel healthy and happy while still taking care of life’s obligations. There’s no need for mom guilt.

But how?


Simple daily practices.

See, for some reason there’s this misconception that taking care of yourself has to be complicated and take all day. Weekend getaways. Spa days. Vacations. These words come up often when you talk about wellness and self-care and they all imply that they are both expensive and time-consuming. 

That’s just not the case. 

Effective wellness and self-care doesn’t come from expensive getaways.

Rather, it’s cultivated through simple daily practices that nurture your body, mind and soul.

Hi, I’m Nina

Because you may be curious (and I’m a Leo, so I’m dying to tell you), here’s a little more about me:

I’m married to a gorgeous paramedic and we have four kiddos (2 of each) that were born in a five year span. None of them are twins. Though my girls are the same age for 10 days each year …

Wellness has been a passion of mine since I was a small child and I’ve been a nurse’s aid, doula, student midwife and yoga teacher. I even trained as an EMT but … no thanks.

I currently coach CrossFit full-time and LOVE everything about it.

I once talked my husband into renovating and living in a school bus-turned-RV (with all the kids) for a year because I wanted to experience tiny living. I loved it and would definitely do it again. For now, I practice simple living a little less drastically.

We currently live in a small house on just under half an acre in sunny Central Oregon. We have chickens, dogs, rats (pets), mice (not pets) and cats, one of which likes to bring us live gifts like snakes (which terrify me).

I’m obsessed with miniature horses and can’t wait until the day we add one to the mix. For now, I giggle like a school girl when we pass them on our neighbor’s farm. Every. Day.

Thanks again for reading,

“As I read your words, I felt like I was listening to a friend…one that thinks like I do, and understands my life. I have always been a “simplify” kind of girl, but feel so overwhelmed at times. I love your approach to simplify life and taking the hard things back to the basics.”
