The Best of 2016: The 10 Most-Loved Blog Posts of the Year

Another year has almost come and gone, and what a year it’s been.

Reflecting back on 2016, I mostly feel proud on what I’ve accomplished, despite my fair share of challenges. I’ve published more than 40 in-depth articles on The Health Sessions, attracting over 200,000 unique visitors. I finished writing my first, 200-page ebook, which will be available late January 2017 – so exciting! And most importantly, there have been countless moments of personal bliss, with the baby boy growing inside me as the most precious milestone.

Of course there have also been many times I’ve felt stressed, exhausted and overwhelmed, concerned about ill family members, not to mention the disturbing and heartbreaking events around the world. But overall, I can honestly say that I’ve done all that I could do this year.

So to round up the old before welcoming in the new, here is the most loved content – by you and me – of The Health Sessions of 2016.

If you hadn’t already guessed it from the title: a baby boy will be joining our family next Spring! I’m halfway through my pregnancy now and have been feeling relatively good so far. With a rapidly growing belly though, it’s becoming more and more of a challenge to keep up with a highly energetic toddler and all my daily demands. But hey, what matters most is that the little one and I are doing fine.
