3 easy ways to stay hydrated

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – drinking enough water is one of the most important things that you can do for your health.  Let’s get real, though, sometimes water just doesn’t cut it.  There are days when it doesn’t matter how much water I drink, I’m still feeling dehydrated and can’t look at another glass of water.  Here are three ways to supplement your water intake and stay hydrated without even trying.

How to balance work and well-being

One of the things I hear most often is that you’d be healthier and happier if you only had more time and that you are just too busy between work and life to focus on your well-being.  Listen, I get it.  I’m not always practicing what I preach.  There are definitely days when I hit snooze instead of meditating, reach for caffeine instead of lemon water, or settle in for a Housewives marathon instead of working out.

But there is a big difference between self-care and self-sabotage.  One night of Housewives to unwind isn’t a problem.  Using it as an excuse to go off the rails is!  Establishing and maintaining healthy habits is all about commitment, planning, and setting yourself up for ease.  It is possible to find work-life balance and it’s easier than you think!

4 tools for embracing your light – lessons from Light is the New Black

A few weeks ago on the blog I shared that I was reading Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell.  OMG – this book is beyond words.  I haven’t been moved so deeply by a book since the magical moment I opened Gabby Bernstein’s May Cause Miracles.

My eyes filled with tears reading Rebecca’s Rise Sister Rise words in the opening pages.  She was speaking directly to my soul and instantly I was transported into Rebecca’s light-filled vortex.

This is not just a book.  It is an invitation to living in the light.  To answering your soul’s calling.  To showing up and serving the world.

Come out of the masses.  Stand alone like a lion and live your life according to your own light. — Osho

Healthy Wendy’s Frosty {Dairy-free, Paleo}

The heat is on in New England and it makes me crave one thing and one thing only: ice cream.  One of my favorite treats growing up was a Wendy’s Frosty – did you dip your fries in it like I did?!  Last week, when an intense Frosty craving hit, I whipped up this Paleo version.  It is creamy, chocolaty, and icy.

So, that happened!!  I signed up for Gabby’s free training on how to own your confidence as a leader and boom – she was talking about me.  OMG!!  I was sitting at my computer thinking about how I haven’t made as much progress in my business as I had hoped and Gabby pops in to remind me of how far I’ve come.  You can sign up for the {free} training to hear Gabby share my story in the first video.  I am so proud for my story to be highlighted in this video.

smoothie

Blueberry Cream Smoothie

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 large handfuls organic baby spinach
  • 1.5 cups frozen wild blueberries
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 banana (if frozen, use less blueberries)
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Add all ingredients to your blender (adding the almond milk, banana, and spinach first) and blend until smooth.  This recipe will make two smoothies.  I top my smoothie with bee pollen and also add probiotics powder, l-glutamine, and gelatin.

 

Are you body shaming yourself?

“Are you body shaming yourself?”

Affirmative.

I just got called out in a major way.  Today I slid down the rabbit hole of body shaming courtesy of my bathing suit.  And luckily my boyfriend was there to lift me out and bring me back to reality.

On an average day I am pretty nice to my body.  But not today.  Today I said truly awful things.  Today I called myself a big fat cow.  (yikes)  Like most women, the idea of wearing a bathing suit is not high on my list.  In fact I usually get through the summer without suiting up – mostly on purpose.  But tomorrow we’re planning to spend the day at the pool for much needed sun and swim.  I’d been dreading trying on my bathing suit and when I did I was instantly transported to crazytown.
