So today I took the bait & got my panties in a bunch (shocker)... But in the process had an AHA moment & sought out 5 things to help the brain seek out happiness over separation. WOO HOO!
Top 3 happiness supplements:
We've had all types of Orgasms. The hungry to get to the climax, rushing to "get somewhere" orgasm I've been experiencing lately brought to my awareness that that is how I''ve been approaching all of life.
Missing the process and forgetting to indulge in the joy of the journey paying close attention to the nuances has become my MO.
Sometimes, it can almost seem like another thing "to-do" when I am particularly disconnected from my body forgetting the full range of relaxation tools and life delights we have at our disposal. It is in these times I seem to only recall sugar and caffeine as tools. It rarely occurs to me to do 5 min of yoga, self massage, stretching, journaling, tapping, meditation or napping. There's always "NO TIME."
Ironically, I also often speed up to do more in search of satiation when it's more effective to stop, breathe, and be present. Tune in rather than speed past.
The very thing that thrusts us forward & keeps us ambitious, may be the thing that also makes us angry, impatient, unkind, and unhappy. How to reclaim your sanity when you're at your wits end, overwhelmed, needing a break, and defaulting to your darker side.
Here's a quick meditative video on the personal benefits of forgiveness and why we should use it to our advantage improving everyone's experience. I made it as a reminder to myself and hope it serves you too. Happy Monday!!
Most of us aren't overly nice to our LIVERS. Our social lives, toxic cities, mass produced food, and chemical additives get stored in our precious filtration organs. This isn't a problem until you're trying to get pregnant, want clear skin, want your systems to work together, or want decent energy.
Then this whole full liver thing is a problem. On top of all that, most of the detoxes on the market only handle half of the problem. They help the liver release the toxins back into the blood stream but don't make it water soluable so that you can get it out of the body.
Cue the wonder team of famous nutritionists and best selling author Adina Niemerow and Hormone balancing, integrative medicine, holisitic nutrition and fertility specialist, Dr. Stephanie Daniel who are hosting a DETOX that does both.
If you'd like to see them in action, here's a video we did after Adina's book launched and she moved into the old cafe gratitude space in the mission. (I'm in the middle playing talk show host between these two powerful healers.)
Join us for the DETOX to get clean together!!

My friends at Kitchen Karate taught me last April how to make shockingly good protein pancakes that feel like fluffy little silver dollar full flour/fat pancakes while actually being a nutritional power house. A little molasses or raw honey for an anti-microbial guilt free sweetener and Voila!
Here's their recipe: (they exchange my chopped almonds for a little flaxseed & protein powder combo which sounds fantastic and sneaks in Omegas!)
In honor of the up an coming WanderLust festival, here's a 30 min restorative yoga flow for beginners you can do at home or on the road. All you'll need is a soft surface/mat and a towel/strap. I'll be shooting a few more of these on the go flows while in Hawaii for you. :)
