I recently had coffee with a dear friend of mine, one who I consider to be a mentor and influencer in many aspects of Growing Grounded, and someone whose opinion I value greatly. We talk about our one, five, and ten year goals, we swap articles and podcasts about topic...

The past few weeks have been memorable at the Bristow household, and as much as I promised myself I would do not work while I was on maternity leave, I felt compelled to share a few experiences.

August can be a significant month for all of us. Maybe you checked a new spot off your bucket list or perhaps you read all the books on your summer reading list. Perhaps it’s time for a new school or career adventures, or maybe it means more routine and the beginning o...

My mom has always said if there was one thing she did right in raising the three of us, its was raising kids who would grow to be best friends. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about this, and ask myself how I can give my own kids the same gift.

I am still getting the hang of the whole blog concept and understanding what to blog about vs. what to put in a newsletter, what to post about vs. tweet about, all while being Mindful of not filling up inboxes and causing unnecessary beeps and chimes (which, as we know...

December was an exciting month for me. In addition to wrapping up 2017, I successfully completed the health coaching program at Emory University. I had my eyes on this program for years, and the more I immersed myself in the wellness community, the more I realized this...
