Being Kind to Yourself

You may have grown up hearing very negative messages. You may have been told not to try, you won’t be successful. You may have believed these messages. You may have been physically and verbally abused and believed that you deserved that treatment. It is possible that no one ever said to you: ‘good job, I am proud of you’. You may have lived your  whole life expecting the worst at all times.

Bombshell Beauty Tips

5 Top Hair Wellness Tips

  1. Are you wondering why your hair is feeling so dry and damaged? TURN DOWN THE HEAT!! Yes, you will get the same results just less damage when using your hot tools (irons, blow dryers etc.) Low settings are ideal for keeping your hair soft and shiny. And please make sure you are using a heat protectant as well. You can always call and ask me about our Olaplex restructuring treatments!! They are the newest science behind prevention/repairing hair damage! Worth every penny.
  2. Does your scalp ever get too dry? Sometimes the opposite even too oily?? Either way these are all tell tale signs of your PH balance being off. To balance that out try a apple cider vinegar wash! It will revitalize your scalp and bring back shine to your hair.
  3. The PH Scale of your hair and scalp is between 4.5-5.5 (acidic). Check and make sure all your shampoo’s and styling aids are in that range to keep everything in balance. That goes with your skin care as well!!
  4.  Normal hair loss is anywhere between 50-100 strands per day! It seems like a lot but that’s the norm. If experiencing extra hair loss ask yourself… Am I stressed? Am I taking any new medications? Am I pregnant or a nursing mother? Hormones, medicine, and environment Copic of big changes lots half of the all play roles in your hair cycles. Taking Biotin vitamins can help strengthen your hair and nails.

The Power of Yes

There comes a time when we just get sick and tired of it. What is it? It could be the unmoved stack of clutter or unresolved “stuff” that we think about from time to time. Clutter usually accumulates because we just don’t know what to do with it or how to handle it in the moment. Circumstances can linger in our perception. Yet the good news is they don’t have to exist in our reality. It’s time to straighten up, clean up and clear out the clutter.

Life as a Vegan

Recently my good friend Dashaun Jones has being living
the Vegan culture life . I was so amazed by his Drive to
live and try something so different from how he came up
eating the traditional food culture, so I had to give him this

cheese steaks, mexican grill foods , and etc . So what

A Different Approach

Take a moment to think of all the good things you can say about yourself and your community. Even with loss, you can be inspired when you see yourself working through issues. You can learn from any experience. Now what would you call that? Growth? Yes, it’s growth and maturity. Life is a journey we are all experiencing. We start from wherever we do and move along. We live through a collection of decisions. Some think that they have no choice to change their circumstances. While others sprint ahead, tweaking circumstances little by little.

Laughter as a Spiritual Gift

Have you been blessed to know someone who laughs often and as such you find yourself laughing too, or at least smiling?  Laughter is a true spiritual gift that is meant to be shared.  You may say "there is nothing to laugh about".  How about just laughing for the sake of energizing your body and mind?  Yes, when you are having a down moment or day, place your hands on your belly, your abdomen, and do a deep belly laugh.  We`ve seen enough Santa movies to know that kind of laugh.  It's fun and energizing as you become more comfortable doing this movement.  Your natural sound is Ho Ho Ho.  Next, move your hands up to your heart area and laugh again with the sounds Ha Ha Ha.   Don't stop until you reach your head with the next sound of He He He.  By now your hands are on top of your head and you are feeling a little silly but more energized than before.  These are the foundational steps to Laughter Yoga which when practiced often has encouraged the sense of  "feeling better`.  When we feel better we are more likely and able to enjoy the day.  Try this laughter practice with friends and family.   Laugh through a song instead of singing the words especially at a birthday party.  Or just laugh...it's fun and healthy for you.

Big Heart Yoga: some changes made but everything Euclid loves is staying the same

Job stress took Kerianne Sidoti to the mat, the yoga mat. The slang "go to the mat"points to fighting, struggle. The surprise for Kerianne was that the yoga mat gave her the opposite. It gave her: relaxing, opening, strength and discovery - discovering how her body works, how her mind works. That discovery translated into the A-word, Awareness.

Medication Madness

When Marie was discharged from the hospital, she had prescriptions for ingesting twenty one pills a day, from nine different bottles. The directives were as varied as the drugs: take three or four times a day, or every twelve hours, in the morning/evening/with meals, along with listed times of when the last dose was dispensed. It was overwhelming and mistakes were made.
