About

Content With CoffeeHi! My name is Cedar, and I’m the creator behind Content With Coffee. I’m so glad you’re here!

I’m a Registered Nurse currently working in a cardiac rehab, helping people recover from cardiac procedures/diagnoses. Before this, I worked in a cardiac ICU but didn’t feel fulfilled. My passion for exercise and nutrition had blossomed while in college, and my current role wasn’t letting me express that part of myself. So while working there, I decided to pursue a NASM personal training certification.

I LOVED it. Studying had never felt so effortless. Six months later I took the exam and became a NASM-certified personal trainer.

Around the same time, I made big move across the country and started my current job in the cardiac rehab, where I get to merge nursing, exercise, and nutrition all in one.

However, if there’s one thing my friends and family know about me, it’s that I love to keep challenging myself. I still wasn’t getting to explore all the different parts of health and wellness that I wanted and was only able to share my knowledge with a small amount of people.

Que Content With Coffee!

Apple Picking Fruit and VeggiesThe blog starts

I started this blog as a way to share all I’ve learned (and continue learning!) in the realms of health and wellness. I believe that our overall contentment can be attributed to three categories: nutrition, exercise, and mental well-being. I’ve seen firsthand what can happen if you don’t take care of all three  of these aspects, and I thoroughly believe that prevention is the best treatment.

While my posts are about my own experiences, they also reflect the most up-to-date information on these topics, without making it so sciency-sounding <– case in point!

I absolutely love working on this blog and coming up with new things to share! Speaking of, if you have anything you would like to learn more about, please leave a comment on a post or email me at contentwithcoffee@gmail.com. This blog is for you!

Why Content With Coffee?

Cup of coffeeSo why did I name it Content With Coffee?

I absolutely LOVE coffee. I always have one cup a day, but not because it wakes me up. In fact, I don’t really think caffeine has much of an effect on my alertness. Sure, if I downed 5+ shots of espresso I’d probably be the most jittery person in the room haha – but one? Not so much.

But I learned very quickly that a cup of coffee just made me happy. I like the taste, and having a warm cup of coffee in the morning made me feel so cozy and content.

When I write my posts for this blog, I’m sitting here drinking a steaming mug of coffee more often than not. And since I post at 6:00 AM CST, you can read the content while drinking your morning cup.

With the importance of mental wellness becoming increasingly recognized, it’s important to recognize the little things in our days that make us happy. And this blog has definitely become one of those things for me.

Thank you!

So thank you so much for visiting! I hope you find something that helps you on your health and wellness journey!

Best wishes,

 

Cedar
