Chelsea Roff has had her share of difficult life experiences; she had to raise her sister alone from a very young age on top of suffering from a severe eating disorder.
Roff’s life took a turn for the better when a therapist suggested trying out yoga as part of her therapy. It was so life-changing that she started her own non-profit yoga clinic, specifically created to help individuals who are battling eating disorders.

A new breastfeeding bill recently made it through the New Hampshire House’s Labor Committee.
The bill, which was cut significantly prior to approval, left out a guarantee of paid or unpaid leave to breastfeed during work hours. However, the final cut still aims to prevent breastfeeding mothers from facing discrimination.
This is the revised wording:
“Breastfeeding a child does not constitute an act of indecent exposure and to restrict or limit the right of a mother to breast-feed her child … Keep Reading!!!
James Fallon is a neuroscientist who has spent his career studying psychopaths. On accident, he learned that his brain had revealed someone who had scan patterns indicative to a psychopath. He later found out his family history had a long line of people with clear psychopathic behavior.

I followed the Trayvon Martin case like so many others, and I actually want to veer from the popular topic of race being discussed. Rather, I am going to focus on what I felt was an important moment in the trial that seems to have been completely overlooked.
Jonathan Manalo was a witness in the Trayvon Martin case, and his testimony stuck with me more than any other witness. Actually, just five words of it did.

Lori caught this Grivet monkey breastfeeding when we were in Ethiopia.
Mom seems to be enjoying a snack, too.
March 2013- Ethiopia.
It was a hot summer day during an extreme sandstorm when we arrived.
The shallow community well was undrinkable.
After being filtered, a child received his first taste of clean water; we were there and witness firsthand the immediate transformation.
