MEDITATION & YOGA LIFE

MEDITATION & YOGA LIFE

SPIRITUAL, MENTAL   & BODY LOVE

Isn't it fascinating to watch the yoga and meditation world blossom so quickly within the past decade? It is truly a modern epidemic. How ironic is it to watch humans continually going backwards to the original ways of living life from simplicity and tiny homes, to clean-eating diets stemmed from the Earth, to ancient healing practices that still prove effective today. Yoga is said to be from India originating from 5000 years ago! Connecting our minds, bodies and spirits to one another is a huge contributor to our overall health. The original roots of yoga are based on one single question, "who am I in relationship to my environment?", one mantra (Om), and one seat (meditation). Everybody, and I mean everybody can do yoga and meditation so do not be intimidated. Give it a try, take a little time to invest in yourself, and show yourself some love...

ORGANICS & EASY AT HOME DIY PRODUCTS

TOPICAL ≠ EXTERNAL

Yes, this title is key to this section! Using products or exposing yourself to external toxins does not always mean that they remain externally bound. Often people do not realize how much of their daily habits could be a large source to internal toxicity. Remember the old adage, "you are what you eat"? Well why in the heck didn't we create a more accurate adage that says, "you are what you expose yourself to"? Not only should you be extremely conscious of what you are putting into your body but you should also really dive into educating yourself on what the ingredients are in your body products and topical agents. A rule of thumb to follow is if it is unsafe or questionable on whether or not you can ingest it, don't put it on your skin, hair, or nails! On that note, it is so much easier than you might realize to create your own do-it-yourself (DIY) products for your home, where you are fully aware of the ingredients. Don't be lazy, try it! Remember our ancestors... if they did it, so can we! Read on for DIY recipes and more information on topical agents...

NATURE & TRAVELING FOR HEALTH

HEALTH BENNIES OF  NATURE & TRAVEL

Let's face it, the incredible health benefits that we receive when we travel (and especially when we travel to destinations where the natural settings are the appeal), are undeniable! The sound of ocean waves, the untouchable rainforest climates, the crisp air at the top of a mountain peak, or the feeling of peace that comes with the smell of wildflowers all contribute to our wellbeing. Studies have proven that being outdoors amongst nature can improve short-term memory, restore mental energy, relieve stress, reduce inflammation, improve concentration and creativity, and boost your immune system and mental health. Studies have also proven that traveling relieves stress, increases overall health, enhances creativity, boosts happiness, and lowers the risk of depression.
