We know that nutrition plays a big part in our overall picture of health, but many overlook that lifestyle and stress management is also a critical component to achieving overall wellness. In today’s busy society, eating ‘healthy’ and exercise can become just another “to-do” item, removing the real enjoyment from it. The idea of self-care can sound selfish in a culture that glorifies always being busy over slowing down. Incorporating green home products can seem like too much to add to your already full plate or is something many feels is financially out of their reach. 

As someone who was a part of the go-go lifestyle, it wasn’t long before I experienced firsthand the damaging health effects it can have on your mental and physical health. With digestive issues, weakened immune systems, stress-related illnesses, and mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression currently on the rise, it is important to not just focus on the old school model of “diet & exercise” but to incorporate a more holistic approach. One that looks at incorporating lifestyle habits that support the body as a whole; physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

The great news is that small changes and simple additions can create a positive ripple effect in how you feel and think every day! Here we discuss wellness topics such as self-care 101, the benefits of mindful eating, and stress management techniques that can support your wellness. I’ll also share the scoop the importance of the gut-brain connection and how batch cooking or meal prep can carve out more time in your week, save you money, and reduce stress during the week. I will share my favorite, easy, and quick DIY natural beauty care products, and green home cleaners that are more affordable DIY options vs. conventional green products. 

Forget the social media perfect “wellness routines”, here’s to wellness habits for the real world.
