Start Here

Hi! I’m so glad that you’re here. What you’ll find in this space is a welcoming, warm, judgment-free, supportive community where the goal is to share real health and lifestyle tips so that you can live your best life.

What is Real Health?

Real Health = Holistic Health and Wellness

That’s the driving concept behind Peppermint Tea & Me. It means that what we eat isn’t separate from how we feel and that how we feel has everything to do with how much we move and how stressed we are.

It’s all connected!

While real health may look different for each of us, there are 5 primary areas that provide the foundation for us all. 

If one of these gets thrown off, we’re going to feel it everywhere, in one way or another. Does that mean that we have to be perfect? No! We just need to be able to recognize where and when things are getting off track and to have the tools in our toolbox to help make decisions that are more in line with how we want to act, think, and feel, both in the moment and in the future.

Let me be clear – the goal here is not loss or deprivation. Weight-loss for the sake of seeing different numbers on a scale is rarely sustainable long-term. But gaining more energy so that you can play with your kids or grandkids, better overall physical health and connections, more calm in this busy world, and enough financial stability to not stress about money, now that’s a healthy lifestyle full of abundance, not lack!

Getting Started with Real Health

If you don’t know where to start or if all of this seems a bit overwhelming, don’t worry – I’ve got you covered! The content that you’ll find here is guided by these 5 pillars and includes everything from research-driven data to practical tried and true tips on how to take a holistic approach to navigating life in a realistic, definitely not boring, and healthy way.
