Welcome 2018!

Here are some simple and effective ways to ease into health this year. As always, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of pure water and herbal teas. 

  1. Eat your greens, especially the cruciferous kinds like broccoli, arugula, kale, cauliflower, and radishes– these guys stimulate the detoxification.  
  2. Lose the gas and bloat, ease constipation, and other general gut problems by eating more raw or steamed plant foods, add more fiber and fermented foods.
  3. Reduce stress by taking Epsom salt baths, clean and organize your home, get a facial or massage, and get plenty of rest will help center and refocus yourself.
  4. Get sweaty – eliminate toxins from poor-quality foods, alcohol, and salt. Increasing cardiovascular exercise through exercise, saunas, or steam rooms helps remove these toxic chemicals and pollutants from your body making you feel lighter and improves skin glow. Plus, this makes your brains feel-good chemicals kick-in.

August's Energies

August is going to have a lot going on with two eclipses, the lunar on the 7th and the solar onthe 21st and a Mercury in retrograde from August 12th to September 5th. That means powerful energies will be above us that can make us feel cray if we don’t keep in mind that slow and steady crushes overwhelm. You may or may not care about astrological shifts, but take this for reals... SELF-CARE, rest, and working behind-the-scenes (creating and still expanding) will be a nice idea to keep in mind.

So instead of saying F*#k Mercury go to hell, we can say Alright Mercury, let’s move slower & stay conscious with whatever is presenting me.

Let’s work with these high energies and not against them.
