Munnday Musings: Stillness & Naps
In the past month I have gone through a break-up, moved into a new home and gotten a puppy! Needless to say it has been a month of transitions.Often during times of transitions we tend to be on "go mode". This past month I have been on "go mode" for sure. It didn't quite hit me until Saturday when baking cookies to bring to a friends house I thought to myself " I'm just going to lay down for a second on the couch while these bake......" While laying on the couch I couldn't he
Munnday Musings: Don't settle
In our lives we have relationships with EVERYTHING. We have relationships with people such as our family,friends,lovers and even ourselves. We also have relationships with things we interact with like food,money,nature and much more. We develop relationships with every single thing we encounter on this planet! Something that I have been reflecting on lately is really taking a look at all the relationships in my life. Do I have relationships that are healthy, happy and thrivin

Thoughtful Thursday: Anxiety in Today's Society
The other day I read an article from the Wallstreet Journal that stated in 2013 over 274,000 infants (0-1 year olds) and some 370,000 toddlers (1-3 years age) in the U.S. were on antianxiety (e.g. Xanax) and antidepressant (e.g. Prozac) drugs. This report also found over 1,400 infants were on ADHD drugs. This is wild. Babies being put on meds for anxiety and depression? What is going on?! This story rings true to me as when I was a child doctors wanted to put me on drugs for
Munnday Musings: The Scarcity Monster
So I was thinking about the blog post I wrote on Thursday and how a few years ago I may not have written it. You may be thinking " Well why not Katie Munn?" Well I'll tell you why- the big old scarcity monster. That's right folks that monster that rears his ugly head telling you there never is enough, never enough. My old story went something like this. " I have many talented herbalists friends that I would love to tell people about but if I highlight them what if someone goe
Thoughtful Thursday:Herbal Friends in Southern Maine
Almost 2 years ago I moved back to Maine from Colorado. I was out in Colorado for a few years studying Medical Herbalism & Nutrition and my program had ended. Even though I love Colorado my soul was longing for the ocean and the deep lush forests of the east coast so I made my journey back home. When I arrived back to Maine the spring of 2013 I got a job at a restaurant.My plan was to work hard and then play hard with the end goal to go traveling abroad. My plans were well la
Munnday Musings: How have you shown up lately?
I've been thinking lately about the topic of showing up and how it affects our lives. Being a human on this earth we show-up for our family, friends, work and even for ourselves. Now you may be thinking what does Katie mean by " Showing up?" Here's an example: Your spouse's best friend is having a party and you are expected to go. It is a Saturday night and you have had a long week. You would rather sit on the couch eat popcorn and watch Netflix then get dressed up and have t
