Mind, body, soul. Isn’t that what we all say when we want something to affect us as a whole? In life, we’re all looking for something that will have great benefits for our entire being. Finding those things doesn’t need to mean — you signing up for an expensive yoga studio, paying tons of money for a trainer, or anything else you might seek in the name of ‘mind, body, and soul rejuvenation’. Sometimes, it can be as simple as staying in the comfort of your own home or office workspace, and doing something most people don’t do enough of: stretch. My philosophy is simple: STRETCH IT OUT and I’ll tell you why.
Watching TV has always been a way to relive my stress. It’s one of my favorite things to do. Since I was a child watching soap operas with my mom, I’ve always been fascinated by the ability for a TV show to take you on a journey. It’s like no matter what I was going through, a good TV show or great book always took my mind off it. Through my childhood, an avid TV watcher thrived. Today, I practically watch everything. I can tell you depending on what day of the week what shows are airing off hand because I’m that crazed about television. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t sit cooped up in a cave watching television all day. I do have a life and am very social, but in my free time reading, writing, or watching TV is just what enjoy. It’s the simple things in life that promote ultimate health and happiness.
Monday mornings or just the entire day is tough. I mean really tough. It’s the first day of the week and usually the worst day of said week. There are so many reasons why people dread Mondays. It’s either because you hate your job, the worst class of the week starts today, or you woke up on the worst side of the bed. However, because I’m all about making us feel good I want to share with you what music I’m listening to today; that is sure to set your mood in the right direction. Setting your mood and getting excited about getting things done, is always the most important part of a productive Monday morning and entire day.
Got the late night munchies? This happens usually when you’re studying and need a snack to munch on; watching TV late at night; or just hungry. I always get the late night munchies. There are times when I’m able to resist and other times I just can’t. Luckily I have a system that ensures I make healthy decisions when those cravings come up in the wee hours of the morning. I take on healthy tiny portion sized snacks to curve my appetite and send me straight back to my room satisfied.
Calling all coconut oil lovers! This post is especially for y’all. Coconut Oil is one of my favorite “super-foods”. Extending from a kitchen necessity to face benefits, coconut oil is a jack of all trades. Super-foods are usually those that have many health benefits outside of just being yummy in your tummy. They can be the best way to tackle any issue you may be having, both externally and internally. The benefits are pretty awesome. My mom is very into everything natural and not processed, so naturally (Ha! What a play on words) I have taken the same route. Today many are becoming more inclined to include tons of different super-foods into their diets. One of my favorite places to go for my super-food needs is Whole Foods! I could roam the aisles for hours and get lost. I wouldn’t mind one bit. They have the best natural substitutions for some of your favorite products.
