Hi, thanks for popping by!


I’m so excited to welcome you to “Inspirational Addict.” You may be asking yourself why “Addict?” Because I am addicted to finding the joys in everyday life. Sometimes that means; a hike, singing songs with our babygirl, a phone call with family, a rainy day, a delicious dark chocolate treat, a bargain on new shoes, not landing a part, a day feeling lonely, a dip in the ocean, a delayed flight, catching a sunrise with my love, a powerful meditation, a smile from a stranger... you get the point! I’m a life enthusiast, constantly seeking self growth and ways to explore happiness.  My 30's have been about getting more clear on how to be a better, more mindful me. After discovering yoga & meditation, I realized how empowering it is to create consistency with doing things that feel great.  A passion for writing combined with life's full spectrum of experiences in the various hats I wear propelled me into launching Inspirational Addict in December 2015.  An uplifting & honest lifestyle blog that invites YOU to indulge in a courageous dance with your amazing and authentic self. Let's face it we're not always dancing and that takes bravery, not to just admit but also to get curious.  
I spend my days on TV and film sets, teaching yoga, indulging in my new mama role and traveling the world with my talented, photographer husband, Erik Almås, whom often is the reason this blog will look so atheistically pleasing. Along the way, I encourage wellness with nutritional living, embrace trends, gain worldly adventures, discover a variety of things I want to pay forward and tell some hilarious, sometimes embarrassing stories. I hope to connect with you through these experiences and I want to inspire you— challenge you to fall deeply in love with every morsel of what makes you... YOU!
Can we be each other's cheerleader? The confidence-boosting, little nudge on our shoulders saying, “We got this.” Life is full of highs and lows which in Eastern philosophy is referred to as the Yin/ Yang: Contrary forces that are actually complementary and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Sometimes a crawl through the ugly and messy can be the very thing that puts us feeling right back on top. We’ll spend a lot of time in the positive but as one of my favorite buddhist teachers, Pema Chodron, says “Start Where You Are.” Now, grab on to my skirt and take my hand and let’s have some FUN!
