How to Stay Healthy in Unhealthy Environments
I recently got an email from a reader and they wanted to confide in me about a problem that is not uncommon- how to stay motivated and carry on your health journey if everyone around you does the opposite? That person told me she enjoyed a healthy, plant-based inspired lifestyle for more than 10 years…Then, because of her work/ business, she was forced to move to a rather depressing part of her country where most people are not at all interested in any holistic transformation. Not to mention any basic self-care. Now, it takes her more than an hour to drive to get some healthy stuff. In the local stores in her area, people actually conform to unhealthy foods because, again, most people don’t care what they eat. To make things worse- she feels laughed at whenever she shows any interest for a healthy lifestyle…In the end, she put on weight, got a bit depressed and asked me for support to get back on track. She asked me for tips and resources on living a healthy life in an unhealthy town…how to break free from bad environments….In her own words: “I can’t even find yoga-it’s that bad. I guess I’ve hit rock bottom and am just looking for support in any way. I appreciate all you do and put out into the world” Continue reading

But I Don’t Have the Time to Take Care of My Health!
Have you ever noticed that when you get caught up in the busy-ness of life and don’t have the time to look after yourself properly, everything starts to turn off-course? Things just don’t go as planned. I have been there many times myself…Do you also notice, when life gets busy, self-care is one of the first things to slide. It tends to seem so unimportant to everything else that’s going on around us. We tend to put off health and wellness for later…I feel this can happen, because many of us feel that it’s kind of selfish to be taking time for ourselves, while we could be taking MORE care of our jobs, businesses, studies, money and other social ambitions. However, can you enjoy your dream job or grow your business or have quality time with your family if you feel sick and tired all the time? Or you feel sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

Don’t Focus on Your Problems. Focus on Solutions.
There are many things we can’t control or change. The only thing we can actually control is how we react to them and what we decide to focus on. What you focus on can change your life and help you create a stronger body and mind. You need to focus on your vision (whether it’s health, life or career). You need to FOCUS on where you’re going instead of where you’re coming from. If you know where’re your going, nothing can stop you. You can have a bad day and still move forward. Now, I am not judging. We all have been through dark periods in our lives; we all have. Sometimes, we may feel trapped in a vicious cycle and don’t know where to start. I can totally relate to this paralyzing, “vicious cycle syndrome.” You just can’t take positive action, even though deep inside you know what to do…
Re-connect with Your Body, Mind, and Soul and Do What’s Right for You. And ONLY FOR YOU.
I always say that the simplest solutions are usually the best. I really believe it’s true. It’s just that US, humans have this weird talent to overcomplicate things. For years, I believed that in order to master health, I needed to know all about the latest diets and super foods or spend tons of money on spas, coaches, extravagant healers, exotic supplements and herbs from the other side of the world. I believed I did not know enough. Yesterday’s superfood becomes today’s banned food. The latest research shows you should cut off this and that. But the guru Xxx says you will thrive if you add more of it into your diet and that it can prevent cancer. OMG! Too much information…Yet too much information can produce scarcity. I am just about to show you how.
Everyday Alkaline Superfoods That Will Make You Unstoppable
Many of us have heard the term “alkaline superfoods” at this point (sounds faddish) but do we really have an understanding of what they are? Is it about expensive supplements that are difficult to find and to pronounce? Is it about some magical green cures? Nope. In my previous article Alkaline Superfoods: Energize Yourself Fast we concluded that Alkaline Superfoods are (in most cases) simple, everyday, common-sense foods that your granny probably told you to eat more of (like spinach for example). They are packed with minerals and vitamins that provide your body with optimal health and energy. The good news? You can easily find them at your local grocery store and stay healthy on a budget. Let’s start by taking a closer look at what is so special about these foods, and then go onto examine specific choices (the superfoods of the superfoods) that should be added to your diet. I will also help you with the practical part and motivation- how to create amazing recipes to help your body with optimal nutrition.
