About Me

Hi!

My name is Clair, and I started this blog to find a little "clairity". Life has always been good to me, but I haven't always returned the favor. A little anxiety and perfectionism, mixed with some sloppy health habits, left me in my early twenties, feeling a little lost and wondering if I was really making the most of all the wonderful stuff I had.

So I started a journey to look for the things that would promote health, wellness, and happiness in my life. And it's an ongoing journey...

I have found that wellness is extremely personal and looks different for each person. From day to day, it looks different for me!

There are a few key principles I try (and often fail) to live my life by. I try to r e l a x. I try to live in the present. I try to love myself and everyone around me. I try to spend as much time as possible doing things I am passionate about (the main ones being cooking, writing, thrifting, crocheting, and reading). I try to remember how lucky I am, even when doing the things I am less passionate about. And I try to exercise, sleep enough, be all natural, be sustainable, and eat healthy.

There's a lot about food here. In an attempt to reign in a sugar addiction, I removed white sugar and dairy almost completely from my diet. Making this change has also encouraged me to eat healthier in general, and I avoid meat (except fish) and eat minimal amounts of processed foods and simple carbohydrates. My general food philosophy is to eat as much fresh produce and unprocessed foods as possible. But I've also learned that I am more likely to stick to a healthy diet if I don't feel compelled to, so I occasionally indulge, and consider it part of my wellness plan.

Please check out the links at the top to learn more about this space, and feel free to send me an email at findingclairity@gmail.com or follow me on twitter (@findingclairity)...I would love to hear from you. And you can read more about my health philosophies in these posts (but remember, all my writing is just my opinion and experience...not rigid science, nor advice from a professional):
