Taking care of ourselves and loving our bodies are two things that we sometimes find hard to do. Whether it’s because we don’t find the time or we subconsciously think we don’t deserve it.
That was me for many years; I fed myself the food I thought I needed to get by and I
Then I started to have digestive problems, skin issues, no energy, and not feeling like myself at all. I thought I was just getting older and that this is how it was, and that a few extra pounds per year was going to be the norm.
Then I started to learn more about our bodies, what they need, how they should move and what is NOT good for them. I became so interested that I took it further and earned a diploma as a Holistic Nutrition & Health Coach, and became a certified Pilates Mat Instructor. From there I took an Introduction to Aromatherapy course and completed some online courses in making natural skincare products.
Once I started to make changes in what I ate, how I moved my body, and what I put on my body, it’s like I got a whole new body! I got rid of all processed foods and ate clean whole foods. I slowly made the transition from drugstore skincare products to making my own non-toxic and natural products.
We all should want to genuinely love ourselves. For me, healthy living includes what we put into and onto our bodies; this is what I refer to as “Self-love.”
Using non-toxic, natural & organic products is rooted in self-care, and self-care is the basis of self-love. Eating healthy and exercising is not about commitment or restraint; it is not a lifestyle change or anything that leaves you with a negative feeling. It is about taking care of yourself because you love yourself. When you love yourself, you want to take care of yourself.
Being healthy and living a non-toxic life is a form of self-love because you are gifting your mind, body & soul happiness. Self-love is an amazing gift that only you can give yourself.
And, don’t forget about pampering your skin! Self-pampering is one of the very best excuses for self-love, especially if it smells and feels nice on your body!
