Wake Up & Smell The Vitamins

Some people think vitamins and supplements are total bullshit. I totally get it — not everyone is into the whole natural, organic, essential, herbal, overpriced "nonsense" that I'm into. But if I'm being real with you, it's NOT nonsense at all! So, to try and get you on my team, here is a list of my vitamin and supplement regimen and reasons for digesting each:

  • Vitamin C (500mg daily) : Benefits - Protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling! 
  • Tumeric (500mg daily) : Benefits - Natural anti-inflammatory compound, fights against cancer, heart disease, and depression. 
  • Grape Seed Extract (50mg daily) : Benefits - Aids bone strength, oral health, skin health, swelling, and heart health. 
  • Coconut Oil (1000mg after dinner daily) : Benefits - Immune system boost, helps brain and memory function, improves digestion, improves burning fat, prevents gum disease. 
  • Ashwagandha (100mg daily) - Helps reduce stress, asthma, and inflammation. 

When picking a vitamin and supplement regimen, it is important to do plenty of research, which may include consulting with your primary physician. Pick natural and organic brands that come highly recommended. I buy most of my products at Whole Foods and there is always a specialist roaming around the aisle available to help answer any questions. I will say this — I have noticed a HUGE difference in my overall wellness and health since starting this regimen. I am rarely getting sick, I never feel run down, and I experience zero side effects. 

Happy Shopping!!!

Only Cool Kids Read

 

To say I hated reading as a child would be quite the understatement. Between my awful ADD and my general lack of interest in novels, reading just wasn’t my hobby. I truly admire people who can get lost in a good book, but I just found all books to be a complete waste of time. (sorry, not sorry, to my bookworm friends) 

UNTIL…

I discovered self-help / self-discovery books in October of 2016. I know… where have I been?! It all started with Gabby Bernstein. If you don’t know who Gabby is, YOU SHOULD. Gabby is a #1 bestselling author, life coach, motivational speaker, cool ass chick, and spirit junkie. I guess you could say I’m kind of in love with this girl. Gabby’s books were my first step into the motivational, universal pond. She is SO relatable it’s almost not even fair. She made transitioning into this high-conscious life way less intimidating. From there, I discovered the excellent community of authors that include Marianne Williamson, Eckhart Tolle, Rhonda Byrne, Jen Sincero, and so many more. I was officially a reader!!! Each book I read taught me something else that just added to this amazing high conscious level I’d been reaching.

I've compiled some of my all-time faves for readers of all kinds. You'll be rushing off to the library in no time! (okay... maybe not the library considering we have amazon and other shit like that but you get my point.)

If you're just starting to dip your toe into self-discovery, these are for you:

-       The Universe Has Your Back – Gabrielle Bernstein

-       Spirit Junkie – Gabrielle Bernstein

-       You Are A Badass – Jen Sincero
