World Brain Day, July 22

For the past several months, my newsletters have discussed how to train and rewire your brain for optimal mental and psychological health using practices like mindfulness, self-compassion, breathwork, and massage therapy. We know that exercise is essential for physical health, but we often forget that our brains need conditioning as well.

If you're not giving your brain the attention it needs to stay healthy, check out my most recent articles and resources to get you started. Let's all honor World Brain Day by making a commitment to train our brains for a long and healthy life!

Jesse, Sienna and I took a trip to Coney Island beach. (The beach has always been my favorite place, but it's been a couple of years.) Sienna had "the time of my life!" We splashed in the ocean, built sandcastles, and had a picnic. The trip was completed with ice cream on the boardwalk and a ride on the ferris wheel!
