In the space…you get to choose.

 

So something happened today, something that should have rocked me a bit, something that would have sent me in a spin any other day.  Thinking, planning, stressing, worrying, and taking immediate action. It doesn’t really matter what it was that happened but it wasn’t super positive.read more

An amazing new nutrition line….

As a holistic health consultant over the years as I’ve worked with clients one on one as well as in group workshops I’ve been  asked about what I eat, what supplements I use and what are the products that I recommend.  What do I use for this or for that?  And although I’ve tried a variety of nutrition products I’ve never been comfortable recommending any unless I’ve used them personally or had direct experience with them for my family.

I had my favorite items but I sometimes found it difficult to help or give advice because I wasn’t entirely thrilled with even what I was using. So I was really excited when I learned of this amazing nutrition line.  Once I tried the products and researched the quality of ingredients that went into making them I was in.  I started to incorporate a few into my life daily and I quickly fell in love.  Not only with how good the products were but with how I felt.       read more

The easiest way to healthier, younger skin

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

 

How much water we need and how to consume has long been a topic of discussion among those in the fitness community, nutrition and medical field. As with nutrition there are many schools of thought and theories behind what is needed, how much and when is the best time to drink water.
I grew up drinking water as my typical drink. I didn’t drink milk or soda as a rule until I was older so water was never difficult for me to consume. But learning Ayurveda changed the way even I consume water actually it was one of the easiest adjustments made and most significant lesson I learned from Ayurveda.

I’ve read that we lose 3-4 liters of fluids each day so getting enough water is crucial to replenish and stay properly hydrated. When we’re not hydrated it can affect our circulation, our digestion, our elimination and our energy.
Proper hydration results in healthier skin, our lymph system working efficiently and it aids in muscle growth by feeding our cells.read more

‘the reward for attention is always healing.’

       There’s more to being a healthy happy person than what you choose to eat, how much sleep you get and your fitness level.  There’s a lot more actually.  How healthy and happy do you think one would be if in prime physical condition but they spend all their time around people that cut them down and they are overwhelmed with negative thoughts and feelings?  If they have significant unresolved emotions from something traumatic in their lives or are continually angry at what their life entails.  Thriving and not just getting through this life involves digesting and transforming all we take in, experience and feel from the food we eat, experiences we have, emotions felt and energy we fill our life with.         

As I’ve shared with some of you recently I’ve always been drawn to writing; to express creatively, to heal, to sort through all that lands in my mind and to have a safe place without judgment and criticism to unload it all.  I started when I was young and quickly learned how therapeutic it felt to get it out of my head and onto paper….there’s a release in that.  It doesn’t take away whatever may be on my mind but there is a sense of relief in getting it out, kind of like venting to someone you truly trust.  So I thought I’d share some reasons you may want to try it.                                               read more

If you cannot eat it, don’t put it on your skin. A DIY mask

One of my favorite cleansers, for years, has been plain, full fat yogurt. The lactic acid in the yogurt is a great, mild, skin brightening and anti-inflammatory cleanser for sensitive pitta skin.  Whenever I’ve needed to re-boot my skin I’ll return to cleaning with yogurt or I’ll make an easy non-invasive scrub by mixing ground oatmeal into the yogurt and applying to my face.read more
