Welcome! I am a twenty-something New Yorker currently pursuing a Master’s degree in — you guessed it — public health (MPH). Although there are numerous facets to public health, my studies concentrate on techniques for behavior modification and health promotion.
As a lifelong writer and frequent reader of several healthy lifestyle/food blogs, I had always considered creating my own blog, but could never quite pinpoint what the focus would be until recently myself in a growing number of situations where I thought, “Hey, that’s interesting; I wonder what other people think,” or “Wow, I really wish I had a place to share THAT with the world.”
This blog is home to discussion of all things wellness-related, perhaps even some topics you may not have previously thought to be in the realm of health. My main interests are diet and nutrition (whole grains/produce/quality protein/healthy fats) and fitness (cardio exercise/strength training), but I’ll also delve into the wonderful worlds of sanitation (really, is there anything worse than a grimy public bathroom?), stress (an intangible but significant reality), the environment, mind-body wellness, mental and emotional health via creativity and spirituality, plus any other topics pertinent to all the fun little encounters of our daily lives.
Stay tuned for meal photos, product and service (food, store, travel, hotel) reviews, news “clippings” and alerts, deals spotted, recipes, thought-provokers, tidbits I pick up in class, friendly debates, and more … all from a health-minded perspective.
As someone with not only a lot to say, but also a love for photography, I’ll do my best to make this blog as fun and informative to read as possible.
Please do introduce yourself. Let the discussion begin!
