The path to wellbeing

What would you do if you were a celebrity?

I'd really like to know what celebrities do after baby. Do they breastfeed? Do they buy other people's breastmilk? Do they hire a wetnurse? Do formula?

It's a curiosity.

Because I know that if you're pregnant, eventually you won't be any more. And your nice, full, firm breasts that look so good...

What kind of adult do you want to hang out with?

So.

There's this thing I notice, and it's a big focus on

  • getting pregnant
  • having a baby
  • wanting the perfect car & house & nursery

for the thing you're bringing into the world and into your life and into your Instagram account.

Remember, though: you're adding a person. A family member,...

Imagine you have an opportunity. It's a big, life-changing opportunity. One that will change the course of your career and your personal relationships.

This opportunity will take change on your part, and dedication. Sacrifice and sustained effort.

How to fix eczema (and also overwhelming processes)

So I was a bit pressed for time the other day and my skin was feeling a little off...the perfect excuse to use combo for some sugar scrub action.

I wanted to use the scrub because - yes, I was in a hurry - but also I was experiencing that eczema-like itch I get when I know I haven't been...

What Keeps Happening?

Remember how you wanted to get your workouts in early?

Those days you meant to meditate and just...didn't?

And weren't you eating better the other month?

Isn't THIS the year you're gonna follow through on spending the holidays how YOU want to?

 

Hmmm...

 

Maybe you need the parental...

Keep it and return to it later.

Refer to it again and again.

A manual that's tailored to your exact situation.

Practice eating alternatively when you're out and about

Are you vegan curious?

Want to know what paleo pizza is really like?

Have you ever tried to order only gluten free from a menu?

 

Menus these days are proud to point out their specialized options.

You don't have to figure out what gluten free covers (exactly). Just try it and see. And...

Feed your brains, starve anxiety

I ran across an article and followed a link, and suddenly was embedded in this paper - a systematic review of tons of studies relating to the connection between anxiety, food, and probiotics.

Partway down the page is another graphic/link, showing how many times the paper has been...

Practice veggies first, meat (and/or fried food) second approach

Next time you're eating

remember to

PRIME
THE
PUMP

Eat your veggies first

your meat/fried food later.

This'll help your digestive system process the heavy stuff and keep you more efficient in the restroom.

Getting fries with that burger? Add a salad and eat that before you start the rest.

Menu Mischief

The right side
tempts me.

More expensive
Richer
Heavier

But the left side
holds its own.

Less pressure
Funner
Adventurous

What I can't do is decide.
So I decide vegetarian.

Or...umm...wait.

Pescatarian.
I decide pescatarian for tonight's meal.

Yes.

I look
and the menu
is transformed.

Options discarded

Smoothie

Every once in a while, you get a taste of something

and you know immediately

your life is going to change. 

 

Maybe it's a person you taste.

Or perhaps an alternative milk.

 

A smoothie, though?

Daily?

Who are you kidding?

 

But seriously.

Things happen

if you drink a...

Menu Psychology

 

I was listening to a podcast the other day and someone was talking about how she went through a period in her life when she "wanted SO MUCH to look at more than just the left side of the menu." 

She said it with such longing...

"The left side of the menu"

as if the right side was...
