How to De-stress Naturally – LPN’s Top 6 Stress Relief Tips


I’m not sure what it is, but with every autumn comes transitions. Transitions towards longer workdays, less sleep and maybe even more broad life changes. I also find that during this time of year we try “to do it all” – for me that might mean getting to my yoga classes, maintaining some form of a social life, avoiding the seasonal cold or working on LPN when I can find the time.

LPN’s Gluten Free & Vegan Chia Energy Biscuits


This week I’ll be hoping on a 17 hour flight. I love to travel, but I don’t love airplane food and I don’t love what long haul flights do to my skin- that is, my unprepared skin.

Whether it’s snacks and full meals, I plan ahead to ensure that I’m feeling nourished and {Read More}
