5 Tips on Setting Boundaries (& Why It's Important!)
Ever since I turned 25, I’ve transitioned into a full on “me, me, me” mode – where all I want to do is dedicate my free time to just doing ME. Lately, I’ve been an advocate for self love/self-care. The most important thing that is often overlooked or well, forgotten. To me, it means taking optimal care of your physical, mental, and spiritual health nurturing mind, body, and soul.

Living in the city has, unfortunately, led me to develop a thick layer outside of myself. I have grown to become accustomed to chaos and distractions… and be okay with it. While working a 9-5 in the city may seem ideal for some, this can sometimes lead to something I fear the most: an uninspired mundane routine. A cookie-cutter path that simply was not for me.
