    Let’s not forget health goes beyond simply eating healthy. True health promotes whole body wellness and balance by managing stress, boosting confidence and esteem, and creating positivity in the mind and body. How do we accomplish this? Self care! Self care is THE key to maintaining a healthy relationship with ourselves. I know sometimes our busy schedule can get the best of us and taking time for ourselves can feel like a luxury you can’t afford but today I want to remind you that it’s okay to take time for yourself (in fact, it’s important that you do)– and I want you to do that by enjoying one of my fabulous 4 DIY food face masks. Face masks, really? YES! They are fast, easy (cheap) and effective — plus summer is here. Don’t you want to hydrate your skin and give it a healthy glow?

    Face masks aside, self care is all about checking in and reconnecting with yourself. When we don’t make time for self care we miss the opportunity to reflect and evaluate. Use that time (even if it’s just 5 minutes) to make yourself the priority. What do you want? What do you need? As mothers, wives and lady bosses and super women… etc — we all know what it’s like to push ourselves to the point of a burn-out. We’ve all experiences the negative effects of too much stress so let’s make an effort to slow it down this summer to give ourselves enough time for personal TLC so that we can be the best version of ourselves for ourselves and for our loved ones.
