Advances in our health and well-being do come from strength, but perseverance is the most important component. Doing little bits consistently will have great benefits.
Never underestimate the small steps you take toward optimal or better health. The one glass of water does count. The walk after dinner does count. Maybe you didn’t go to the gym 3 times this week, but you went once. It counts!
Hang in there, keep adding in more good things, and it will pay off. It’s so worth it. 🙂
This morning I was preparing my space before I started my blog writing for the day. I have 3 current blogs so I try to write at least one or two, sometimes three posts in a day. Anyhow, while I was getting ready I thought that I would share a part of what I do for my morning health routine and things I do throughout the entire day to remind myself to add in more of the things that add to my health regime in a positive way.
In the picture above is my morning warm lemon water with honey which is in one of my favorite little glass pots from the thrift store. And behind it is a carafe of water I drink from when I need water . I like to drink it from this stainless steel wine glass (also a thrift store find) because it makes the act or art of drinking it almost sacred to me and is a great visual reminder when I walk by.
I do think of any act that I do for the betterment of my health overall as sacred. My body is my temple and I am learning that the more sacred I make it, the more by body and soul both appreciates and receives it.
This morning, as part of my health routine, I listened to positive youtube videos and this one from Robin Sharma
called “How To 100x Your Productivity In A World Of Distraction” where he talks about our addiction to distraction. It seemed fitting for me today and I also was able to tie it into my thoughts around this blog post.
Where do we get distracted around doing things for our health? Maybe we were going to go for a walk after dinner but we started checking Facebook and then it got too late. Or maybe, we had great intentions of making that new healthy recipe for dinner, but we got distracted with texting someone and ran out of time so we just threw something together healthy or not.
So to bring this in for a landing the point I am trying to make with the water carafes, glasses, and teapot, is that it sets a definite intention for me. It reminds me to focus and to bring about, and to actually implement some healthy actions and to make them ‘sacred’.
My sister told me a story once of where, at her work, when it’s lunch time, she puts on her desk a little teapot that signifies to her that it is indeed time to break for lunch and to en-JOY the time and to en-JOY her lunch break. The teapot is the sacred piece that sets the intention for her to focus on the moment.
I have never forgotten her story and have implemented that philosophy in my own life.
I hope this blog post inspires you to find ways to help add intention and focus to your healthy daily additions. 🙂

Celery Juice is the latest health hack and for good reason. People everywhere are drinking their daily 16 oz of celery juice and seeing tremendous benefits especially with digestion.
One of my clients started on the celery juice some time back and has had great results with acid reflux! She messaged me yesterday and it made me very happy! I will share her message below and her NP is her Nurse Practitioner by the way…
Client: “Omg !!! I totally forgot to tell you about my NP visit !! I know you’ll be excited by it too. I don’t have to take my acid reflux medication daily any more. I told her how I was about to go a few days at a time now. She said ok. Now don’t take it until you have a heart burn attack. Then only take it til the heart burn is gone. Then stop until you have another attack again.”
I am very happy for my client. She was a little apprehensive about trying the celery juice at first, but now she is addicted! 🙂 We often keep each other posted about which grocery stores in town have the best celery in stock, with the best price, etc.

I was reading an article someone sent to me about the latest wellness trends and what would be popular in 2019. Of course celery juice was #1 on the list. You can learn more about celery juice at my blog post from last year here: Link to Celery Juice 101 Blog Post
But today I want to talk about another trend that I think is awesome! The trend is that people are going to realize that a healthier lifestyle means more than what they eat, how intense their workouts are, etc.
More and more people are coming to realize that the little things we do on a daily basis have a huge impact on our health and peace of mind. These are usually parts of our lives that we take for granted, like spending time with those we love, taking down time, taking a break from technology, reading a book, cooking a meal,playing a board game together, going for a walk, and basically getting back to living and en-JOYing life!
I really love this trend and am inspired to add in more of this life en-JOYment for myself and I hope you too find that 2019 brings you more of the things that make you smile and that connect your with those you love!
