Self Care Sunday: Set a meaningful, attainable goal for yourself.

This morning is all about intention. Set a new goal for yourself with respect to your wellness. Perhaps it's to drink more water, or take a daily walk, to try a new yoga class, or cut out sugar.

Watch how setting and keeping a goal can transform you whether it is for an hour, a day, the week or your lifetime. Things shift in the precise minute we decide to make a meaningful change. You can do this for yourself not just today but any day you choose. Simple changes, better choices one day at time. I honor you for being here and working on yourself.

GET THIS: Companies producing bottled water are not legally require to note the source of their water NOR have to list how the water is treated (if at all).

Your Eyes and the Sun.

Your Eyes and the Sun.

Light tells the brain it is time to wake up. But did you know that exposure to in the early morning, can actually help you sleep at night. The timing of exposure is crucial; the body clock is most responsive to sunlight in the early morning, between 6 and 8:30 a.m. Exposure to sunlight later does not provide the same benefit. The type of light also matters, as does the length of exposure. Direct sunlight outdoors for at least one-half hour produces the most benefit. HOWEVER,
Overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause a variety of eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, non-cancerous growths on the surface of the eye) and even cancer of the eye and eyelids. Therefore, to protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation you should ALWAYS wear sunglasses when you are outdoors except when you are getting that early morning light. AND never look directly at the sun.

Safer Personal Care Products: Natural Makeup Brands

Safer Personal Care Products: Natural Makeup Brands

Can you believe that the United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. But In Europe things are much different. Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date. This is unacceptable.
Parabens, Phthalates, Polyethylene Glycols, Dyes, Fragrances....the same chemicals we have been talking about all week are lurking in your makeup bag. If you have bought mainstream brands like CoverGirl, Loreal, or Maybelline you are using toxic products.
There are great brands out there that are all natural and perform as well as the bad stuff.
Our three favorites:
Dr Haushka
Tata Harper
Beauty Counter.

Check them out. Get those toxins our of your personal care products for a healthier you!

As always, please share this podcast with someone you love.

Wellness Wednesday: Safer Toothpastes

Who would think that many commercially available toothpastes contain toxins. With the lining of the mouth being so very thin it is prone to irritation and even infection when coming into contact with toxins. Plus, the nature of scrubbing teeth with a toothbrush can irritate your gums causing even more absorption. Please take a minute to check your toothpaste for any of these toxic ingredients: DEA Flouride Propylene Glycol Triclosan SLS Saccharin & Aspartame You can check out the Environmental Working Group to see how your current toothpaste measures up here: As always, products we love and approve are on our Amazon Wellness Warrior checklist here:

Recap: Living a Lower Carb Lifestyle

Recap: Living a Lower Carb Lifestyle

This week we will recap what we have been learning over the past 8 weeks.
Today's podcast has a new intro thanks to Jim McCarthy Voiceovers. He rocks.
Today is a good day to recommit to living a lower carb lifestyle. Omitting the breads, pastas, baked goods and saying yes to more good fats and fresh vegetables. Give that pantry a good cleaning and hit the market to stock up on fruits and vegetables. It's asparagus season and soon strawberries will be filling market stalls. As it gets warmer I find it much easier to choose lighter, fresher foods. Give it a try.

Finding a mindful activity and a sneak peek at next week.

Today, make some time to contemplate activities in your life where you are in the zone. Fully present in each and every moment. For me that is when I play tennis. For some it is golf, or fishing or hot yoga. Movement that doesn't feel like work where you are focused. It feels great.
