Congratulations! We've made it to the 6th and final week of our 2020 Wellness Journey! If you've been participating in our intentional wellness journey, we've been exercising, staying hydrated, getting rid of unwanted toxins, eating detoxifying foods, and prioritizing sleep. This week (and hopefully every week starting now!) we're focusing on mindful self-care. Read below and join us!
Self-care is a wellness trend that we hope is NOT a fad. In an always-connected world, the popular "no-days-off" mindset is not conducive to relaxation and overall well-being. Burnout is a huge problem; it's chronic and can lead to stress and negative health outcomes. To combat this, we're going to schedule time to mindfully reconnect with ourselves. Whether it's a manicure, starting a new book, journaling or a bubble bath, being mindful about what relaxes and recharges you is key!
Sometimes we need more than just a 30 minute bath or 10 minute meditation to heal from the daily stress of life. If this sounds like you right now, why not try a juice cleanse? Fasting has been around for centuries as a practice believed to bring spiritual and physical renewal. While a juice cleanse is not quite fasting, it allows you to take your mind off of food, become more aware and observant of what is going on in your body, detox, and clear the mind! You don't need to do a week-long juice cleanse to clear the mind, a one day cleanse done mindfully can help you reset and recharge.

Allergies... We certainly hear that word a lot today. It is estimated that 50 million Americans suffer with some form of allergy, placing it on the top of the list of medical ailments. So what actually causes allergies and why do allergies appear to be on the rise?
We all get stressed from time to time. These days it seems turning on the news, opening up social media or even visiting a grocery store can cause a lot of stress. Stress can be very hard on the body, and many of us are unaware to the imbalances and changes stress can have on us. Recent scientific studies have indicated that stress could be one of the main causes of many auto-immune diseases including cancer.
