Why is your well being important?
You deserve to be your best self don't you?
Feeling your best self means functioning your best.
Feeling content in your own skin is an often unrealized ideal in the modern world. Stress is higher than it's ever been and knowing what your body needs to de-stress can be overwhelming. Information on how you should be taking care of yourself is bombarding us as quickly as the advertising encouraging us to take part in activities that can be taxing on the human bodies. That's what we're here to talk about, the discomfort we can feel and how we get through it ourselves. We're raw, real and not holding back from sharing our intimate truths no matter how ugly.
Figuring out what this means isn't easy.
Navigating what’s truth in this confusing time of infinite information is why we’ve set forth to uncover truths for readers. Through self experiment and experiences we’ve found ways to cope with our everyday aches, pains, and stresses. We are entirely too familiar with mental illness and physical chronic disease. In some instances we're still healing, in others we need the outlet of creativity and some experiences we're still seeking to learn. Though we’ve found ways to feel better, we're constantly seeking ways to be our best selves and our knowledge journey is never finished. We aren’t always successful but each failure is another attempt at learning what our bodies - minds need to be happy. We may sometimes be crass, on a rant, or just expressing ourselves but we are always honest.
Apples Are All About
Thorough research, education and truth dissemination about our human body experiences - it's about more than surviving, it's about finding the path to thriving. Our mission is to share our story - the truth of it. We won't shy away from honesty. We hope you enjoy the musings and moments in our own journey's of health and healing as well as the truths you'll find from reading the stories from these bad apples. This is our how and why and with what tools; we've come to use to tackle obstacles that at times seemed impossible. Maybe in sharing our stories, we can help others on their own path in this life journey, one that leads to further healing of you too.
L. Bohlinger is a long time Harry Potter enthusiast,
An educator, mama of a strong willed little girl, and loving, patient wife of a really tall guy. She has always been conscientious about her weight and diet since high school. After overcoming anorexia, she started working on her self image and her confidence about her entire self both inside and out. In college she started working out and making sure she was eating well. She refused to try running long distances until she got her energetic puppy, and started her first job as a high school teacher while finishing grad school. (Talk about stressful!) She may be an on and off again long distance runner, but will always be an avid hiker in the wonderful state of Colorado. She is continuing to learn about her health and body through trial and error after having a baby, working full time, and becoming a PhD student. She is learning to balance it all! She believes in making the right lifestyle choices based on each person as an individual because everyone is different, and what she does may not work for you- that’s ok at least you're looking for ways to try and be your best self! She wants to provide insight into health as a working professional and mother because the struggle is real, and we can all use some tips and tricks along the way.
