"What often happens is that we label ourselves as the feeling: "I am sad, I am angry, I am happy" instead of "I feel...", which is a very different experience. It's not who I am; it is what I am feeling. And it's okay to embrace that feeling and let it flow through you, without resistance." -An interview with one of my favourite naturopaths Petrea King in this month's Australian Yoga Life.
Today I am feeling optimistic and content. What about you?
There is a constant influx of amazing new products at Essential Health and it’s easy to lose track of what we’ve got on the shelves. Once a week I will feature one product/brand to keep everyone (including myself!) in the loop. Please welcome...
Let’s face it, we unintentionally ingest our lipstick and lip balm. Some sources say up to 4.5 kilos in our lifetime! A lot of red lippies contain nasty chemicals like lead and are also tested on little bunny rabbits. Sad face. Along comes Hurraw! lip balms that arrived to us on Thursday.
-Hand made in small batches
-Premium fair trade ingredients
-No animal testing
-Natural flavours and colours including black cherry, earl grey, cinnamon, blue chamomile, lime, almond and grapefruit.
So basically, it’s so natural you could eat it! We have the chai spice and coconut flavours in stock at the moment (clearly I did the order)! They are from the States and are $7.95 each.
Top 5 Things I LOVED This Wk:
1. Cooking everything in coconut oil. This wk: spelt spiced apple cake, vegie patties, roasted vegies for lasanga, fried eggs for nai goreng, haloumi and green apple slices.
2. Getting caught in a down pour when on a beach walk. You’re instantly soaked to the bone within 30 seconds and all you can do is smile and embrace the experience.
3. Having a candlelit blackout on Friday night. Quite romantic.
4. Sleepless by Flume. I swear I just love it the more I listen to it.
5. My 89 year old client who gives me gardening advice brought me in a photograph that he took especially for me of his vegie garden. Bless!
Clear out one of those corners/drawers/cupboards in your house where you dump stuff. You know the ones I’m talking about. For me it’s the corner of our breakfast counter where I throw down my bag, lap top, files, bra as soon as I walk in the door. So much so that my husband has named it Emmy’s corner. You'll feel better without the clutter :)
So I woke up this morning... and found that Essential Health Coffs had cracked the 500 likers!! 502 in fact! Wowzers!! Thanks peeps!
Have a gorgeous week and remember that every day is a fresh start!
