Instead of being stressed out, wouldn’t you rather to be blissed out?  You can, through regular practice of quiet meditation.  Auuuuuuum!  We spend so much of our lives running around from one task to the next, worrying about this and worrying about that, but rarely take time out to do just…nothing.  Just as your body needs time to recharge and reset, so does your mind and spirit.

In today’s fast paced society, it can be difficult not to feel some stress.  Technology may make life easier, but now we are expected to do even more.  This constant go, go, go creates a lot of stress and anxiety, which affects not only our physical health, but also mental and spiritual as well.  Stress is the leading cause of 99% of illnesses. Rather than reaching for some happy pill, which will cause other issues and nasty side effects, allowing yourself a time out to unwind, let go, and just be, will allow you to release that stress naturally without causing damage to the body.

The beautiful thing about meditation is the more you do it, the better you feel.  A regular routine of meditation has profound effects on body, mind and spirit.  Imagine being able to remain calm despite any chaos surrounding you.  It’s totally possible, but you must practice meditation regularly to get there.  Not only can you remain calm, but your thinking becomes clearer.

There are many different techniques, so it’s best to find what works best for you and your individual situation.  Thanks to modern technology, there is an abundance of information available right at your fingertips to help you.  For a great place to start, check out this great blog post, The Art of Meditation, to help you on your personal development journey.  When you meditate regularly, you can quite the mundane chatter and learn to find the Zen in any situation.  Anytime is a good time for Zen, peace, and bliss!

Speaking of bliss, this glass straw is perfect for sipping on a cocktail, while finding your zen!  Check out the Cocktails & Kids 7mm Sipper straw and get yours now!

The greatest gift you can give yourself and others is to love yourself as you are.  This is a big step on the road to personal development.  The more you love yourself, the better you treat yourself, the happier and more successful you will be.

The truth of the matter is we are always our own worst critics.  It’s time to drop that negative self talk and start loving yourself, I mean really loving yourself, flaws and all!  Actually, those are truly not flaws, they’re eccentricities.  Each scar, wrinkle, freckle, stretch mark, wild hair, etc, is a piece of a puzzle, coming together to create a whole beautiful picture.  Each tells a story that is brought together to portray the wondrous novel that is you.  Every struggle, pain, challenge, success, and mistake is important and every little bit has made you who you are today and that is something to be cherished, not looked down upon.

Rather than focusing on what you’re not, it’s best to learn to love what you’ve got!  Don’t give in to those negative thoughts.  Catch yourself in the act and put it to a halt.  Give yourself daily affirmations, looking in the mirror and telling yourself that you are a beautiful person, that you are amazing, you are worthy to love and be loved and more.

We often bring ourselves down through our own negative thought processes.  It can cloud your judgment and make you miss out on the beautiful blessings life has to offer.  When you let go of focusing on the negatives and start focusing on the positives, you will experience much less stress and anxiety, while the confidence you exude will open up many more doors for you.  With the right mindset, you can conquer any challenge.  So, do yourself and the world a great big favor and give yourself a nice positive affirmation as you begin each day. Now go out and get ‘em tiger! Grrrr!

3520537_400What’s the best way to fight off the Monday blues?  Through pampering yourself with an all natural skin care treatment, of course!  This rejuvenating and moisturizing honey avocado mask will help you to get balanced and find your Zen.

As we go through our days, stress and stressors build up and show through our skin.  Not only that but we are also exposed to so many environmental toxins.  With skin as the biggest organ of our body, it seems quite silly to expose it to even more unnecessary chemical toxins in our skin care regime.  For this reason, the rule of thumb should be that you shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you cannot eat!

All natural beauty products abound, but they can be quite costly and in some areas, not easily found.  You don’t have to break the bank for this exquisite treat!  In fact, you can make this amazingly nourishing and moisturizing mask with ingredients right from your kitchen.  Yep, you read that right, this is a mask that is good enough to eat.  Treat yourself by trying this soothing honey avocado mask.

Honey Avocado Mask

¼ ripe avocado
1 tsp honey

  1. Blend the avocado in a food processor or blender into a creamy consistency.
  2. Add the honey and mix well.
  3. Apply to freshly cleansed skin
  4. Relax for 20 minutes, as the mask does its work (and it feels oh so good!)
  5. Rinse and enjoy your well-nourished skin!

Natural skin care treatments don’t have to cost a fortune.  Plus, when you make your own, you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin and there’s no extra packaging to toss in the garbage bin.  For those moving to a more eco-friendly way of living, this is a great step in the right direction.

As you relax with this nourishing mask, you can sip on your favorite smoothie.  The Blender Bend Everyday 9mm 30cm straw has the perfect angle to allow you to sip freely, while leaning back in your favorite cozy chair.  Grab yours here!
