Did you know that 60% of the body is made of water?
Did you know that water takes the backseat to carbonated soda as the most popular beverage in the United States? 🥤
It’s a scary statistic not only because the dangers of drinking sugary drinks on the body, but also because the body requires ample amounts of water to help balance all of the body’s fluids, digest food, transport nutrients from food to the rest of the body, and to regulate the body’s temperature.
So basically, water is your body’s superpower. 💎

Water is necessary for the digestion of food and to prevent constipation.

Do you know that the skin is the largest organ in the body?
The skin's job is to protect the body from trauma and outside dangers, regulate temperature, and sense pleasure & pain.
Like with any other organ, it is good practice to pay attention and nurture its health. One way to do this is to start a daily routine of dry brushing your skin in the morning before taking a bath or shower.
Dry brushing, appropriately enough, is exactly what it sounds like - the brushing of the skin with a dry brush. The process removes dry, dead skin cells, leaving the skin fresh and new.
You may be thinking that adding another step to your already busy routine is too much, but besides the baby-soft skin, the benefits of dry brushing go beyond just your skin - and it only takes 60 seconds!

Have you ever desired more connection to the women in your community?
Have you wanted a safe space to share your story, not to get advice or judgement, but just to be listened to?
Have you ever wished for friends who would accept and appreciate you- just as you are?
If so, you are not alone.
I have found this sacred community though a tradition known as women's circles.
I have had the honor of hosting and attending women's circles and they are so sweet and powerful. If you have not heard of a women's circle before, essentially it is a safe and sacred space for women to come together to share life together.
Sounds broad and vague? It is a little.
The magic truly happens from establishing a safe circle with a few guiding principles and then letting each women offer her own gifts and words to the collective. Women's circles have been around for thousands of years and they can come in many beautiful shapes and sizes.
If you are feeling called to rise as a leader in your community, and to shar...
1) Eat Breakfast: You want to support your blood sugar (which supports your energy levels) and make sure you start the day on the right foot. This can often get skipped especially if your the host and want to get everything all set up. It can also get skipped for the false logic of "saving calories" for the big meal - which often backfires completely because instead you show up like Godzilla running down the buffet line eating 5x more calories than you would have if you ate a solid breakfast. Save Godzilla for xmas morning when you open presents and do yourself a favor by eating breakfast on Thursday.
