Happy Spring beach lovers! This month's blog is all about stripping down, starting fresh and nourishing ourselves: from the inside out!
Time to ditch the heavy starch root veggies along with our cute knit sweaters and transition to seasonal fare and flair: Go with salads and sleeveless! Salads are not your friend? Juice or blend those veggies to get them into your body.
Check out this month featured detox green smoothie recipe.
Remove that dry winterized skin and replace it with energized skin that demands to be touched!
Try dry skin brushing. It's a fast, effective, numerous health benefits not only removes dead skin cells but also activates waste removal via your lymph nodes.
Finish off your polish with a simple moisturizer like organic coconut oil.
How to choose a coconut oil, best and worst brand.
Meditation need not be complicated. It's all about be present in the moment. You can find a place to just sit and be still and be aware of your breath. Or you can make it a moving meditation: go for a walk, put on your favourite music and have a solo dance party! Find time and make it fun!
Seva: selfless work or volunteer work.
Take time to give back to your community. Feel like giving back on a global scale? Add travel to your plan and volunteer abroad! Find a cause you care about or a location you're interested in visiting and do some research before you go.
