Welcome to Better Kate Than Never

Late in 2016, I found myself on a journey toward an accidentally fit life as I worked my way through belt promotions at my Kempo Jiujitsu dojo.

Along the way, I discovered health and wellness is about more than crunches and push-ups. It’s about letting go of the things that no longer serve you. It’s about working toward goals that scare the crap out of you. It’s about acknowledging what came before even as you move forward to what can be.

In short, life is a journey, and this is mine. Welcome.

Burnout: More Than a Catch Phrase

Earlier this year, I retired from being a hands-on healer. I prefer the term “retire” over “quit” because it reflects the respect and passion I still feel for the profession. To me, “quit” implies I could no longer stand working that job for one more minute, that I no longer had the passion required to … Continue reading Burnout: More Than a Catch Phrase
