Hello there. I am Laura. I am a wife and mom of teenage boys. I love good sarcasm, wandering the grocery store, collecting small appliances and trying the latest trends in beauty and fashion. As long as those trends don’t include showing my midriff.
Lately it seems that I am finding myself in the middle of everything
-the middle of my 4th decade and middle years of my life (God willing!)
-the middle of raising teenage boys to be decent human beings
-forgetting my words in the middle of a thought
-the middle of two jean sizes
-and forever in between vegetables and chocolate. Or maybe a margarita. And fries.
The last decade and a half, I have been on a long journey of healing physically and mentally. The physical side is a winding journey of healing my gut and thyroid.
The mental side is challenging the ever-present internal dialogue of “I’m never enough” and thinking I need to fit into a mold deemed acceptable by someone else’s standards.
I am a work in progress.
These challenges in my health led me to become certified as a Holistic Health Coach in 2017 through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I found so much joy and sparked a passion in me that made me want to share all I know and have learned through school and personal experience.
My mission with Laura’s LiveWell is simply to share some of my favorite go-to’s in food, fashion, lifestyle and most importantly- self care. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t take care of myself, I sure don’t take care of anyone else real well.
I want to be your biggest encourager! My hope is to inspire you in these crazy middle years. And the courage to step outside your comfort zone because life is too short not to.
So stay a while and look around. I hope you find something to help you LIVE WELL.
