5 New Year's Resolutions You Can Commit To (In Case You Need One)

Yes, folks, it's resolution season! So, in case you are drawing a blank this year, or you have failed far too many times at sticking with your resolution in previous years, I have for you a few resolution ideas that you may want to consider tackling for the year 2020. 1) Do a monthly digital detox . Every month for the year 2020, commit to doing some type of digital detox. That means you 100% unplug yourself digitally for a period of time. No smartphones. No Fit Bits. No internet. Try 24 hours without your smartphone and see how it feels. Then next month, try an entire weekend without your smartphone.

Kumanday Coffee Review & Giveaway

January is the perfect time of year to add a new kind of coffee in your life. Recently, I had the chance to try Kumanday Coffee and I am so excited to tell you about it. The Kumanday Coffee is 100% Colombian Arabica Supremo Coffee. The Colombian Arabica coffee is grown by small coffee growers on Coffee Growers Cooperatives, which means it is guaranteed to have responsible trade and fair compensation. That is extremely important to me and wonderful to read on their website. Now for the coffee! This is such good coffee and I was so happy to try it. Their coffee has such a bold flavor to it. It has chocolate notes to it which I love finding in coffee. I can tell the roasting is fresh! The coffee is more of a medium roast too. So while I prefer a dark roast, I did love this coffee a lot. It had tons of flavor to it and I would absolutely recommend this to any coffee flavor! You can purchase your own Kumanday Coffee by visiting this link.  Be sure to also follow the
