Why you should practice being still

How often do you slow down and take a moment for silence?

If you're like most, chances are you don't.

When I suggest this, most people think it's stupid, a waste of time. They tell me they don't have time for it.

But taking this quiet time can have major benefits...way more benefits than you'll ever get from another 5 minutes of Netflix.

Meditation, as some call it, works on all systems of the body at the cellular level. This isn't just about getting peace and quiet so you don't yell at your kids, this is about altering your body chemistry.

Simply taking five minutes to be still can:

‍decrease inflammation
‍slow the aging process
‍reduce risk of heart attack
‍improve memory

I don't know where else you can get that many benefits out of five minutes...

I would love to know how include this in your day! Comment here and tell me:)

What I ate...

Pictured is the most delicious lunch I ate the other day.

This is a peak into how I balance my eating and what I eat on a typical day (although not all of this was typical, coughwinecough.)

Such a delicious lunch with tons of whole, plant foods- just the way I like it!
Local, #grassfed beef sliders
Seafood salad with avocado
Steak salad
Iced coffee
Wine, because #winenot ?!

What did you have for lunch?

How can you get healthy-ER?

Healthy is different for everyone!

Start by figuring out what kind of balance will work for you in your life.

What adjustments do you need to make to feel good and look the way you want?

Personally:

I am strict in certain areas: no gluten, low sugar, no fast food.
I am loose in others: wine, cheese, gluten free pasta.
This balance allows me to feel good, enjoy my food and look the way I want

This balance works beautifully for me in my life, what will work for you?
