Self-Care Isn’t a Luxury, It’s a Necessity

The phrase self-care describes what people might do in order to achieve optimal physical, mental and spiritual health. Google reports that searches for “self-care” are twenty-five percent higher now than a year ago. And there’s a reason for that.

More and more people are beginning to recognize that performing everyday healthy rituals — getting acupuncture, doing yoga, taking a bath, meditating, or even having a skin care routine — can help keep your body and mind balanced and energized. And self-care is an important part of starting to make health your hobby.

Finding moments of joy and fulfillment to care for yourself doesn’t have to be complicated. Make a list of things you can do to care for yourself, and you’ll realize that many — if not all — of the things on your list are easily within arm’s reach. All you need to do is pick one, add it to your schedule and you’re on your way to feeling and being healthier, happier and more self-fulfilled.

An act of self-care benefits your mental health, too. Be kind to yourself and make it a priority. Research shows that taking time to take care of yourself eases stress when you are feeling overwhelmed. Self-care is crucial for finding solace in these stressful times.

And there’s another benefit: when you take the time to care for yourself, you are then in a better position to help take care of the other people in your life.

My One Year Celery Juice Anniversary

Sixteen ounces of celery juice every morning has changed my life. Today marks one year of my daily elixir. I drink it on an empty stomach and don’t eat or drink anything for about thirty minutes. So many things that used to bother me are gone. Celery juice is super anti-inflammatory so my body feels incredible along with my digestion. My cystic acne is gone along with bloating and tiny spots of eczema.

Here are other benefits:
1. Restores central nervous system
2. Improves kidney function
3. Removes toxins from liver and intestinal tract
4. Improves sleep
5. Reduces blood pressure

Celery juice is the most powerful way to alkalize the gut. It has properties that starve out all of the bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus and viruses. In other words, it kills all the bugs in your body. The best benefit for me has been the softest body skin and a glowing face. I recommend this to my clients a lot and hope that you can try this for yourself and see how beneficial this juice really is.
