Purely You: Finding Your Best Self

Yoga Pose

The best thing you can do for yourself is to find the best version of you, and be that every day. In order to magnetize the things you want most never stop working on expanding your mind, improving your body and allowing your soul to grow. Invest in yourself and allow yourself to feel good.

Follow these steps for becoming Purely You.

Prioritize “Me” Time

          Take time for yourself each and every day, treat yourself. Work it out at the gym,practice meditation, or get your glow on at the spa. Making time for you is the key to a relaxed mind and happy spirit.

Opt for Outside

          Bring Mother Nature with you on your next day off. She loves sun bathing at the beach, hiking along a nature trail, and gardening in the backyard. Spending time outside is the best pick me up, and always good for the soul.

Stay the Course

          When set-backs happen (and they ALWAYS do), don’t let it distract you from your personal goals.

Eat to Live, Don’t Live to Eat

          Organic, green, whole, natural, these words are what you should be thinking before your next meal. Focus on eating foods that are alive, and that will give you energy; eat the foods that will heal you, not harm you. Take care of your body, it’s the only place you have to live.

Freedom Tips, and more!

Sometimes it’s the simple things we need to remember, but often forget, during the various holidays. Case in point, the Fourth of July. While most of us are aware we’re celebrating the nation’s freedom from the British, many of us overlook the basic rights inherent in being an American. For example, you have the ability to choose many, many things. You can choose a religion, a political stance, the type of music you listen to, who your friends are, even what you eat, where and when. At Purely You Spa, we have chosen to be an organic day spa because of the freedoms this affords our staff and clientele – freedom from toxic chemicals, freedom to de-stress and relax, naturally. I don’t want to get too carried away here, after all, July 4th is also about the parties, parades and fireworks. But, for a moment, let’s look at some of the ways we can liberate ourselves from the toxic people, places and things in our lives:

• Reduce, reuse and recycle – you know the adage…if you haven’t worn it, used it or looked at it in 6 months, it’s time to go. Also, recycle your cans, plastics and the like. We only have as much freedom as we do space to enjoy it!

• Go green – skip on the toxic hand sanitizers, bleach and other harsh chemicals that harm you, your children, pets and the environment. doTerra essential oils (and other companies) offer much healthier and safer alternatives.

• Go organic – whenever possible choose organic. It isn’t always easy to do because of costs, but the reality is that by selecting organic whenever possible, you reduce your toxic load, improve your health and wellbeing and reduce medical costs over time. Start with meat/poultry and dairy. The Environmental Working Group’s website (www.ewg.org) can help you identify the safest products and know which fruits and veggies are in the you should purchase organic.

• Liberate yourself from the toxic people in your life – I know, you can’t get rid of family and have to work for a living. That being said, you can lessen the impact of “Debbie Downers,” “Negative Nates” and the others who drain you in body, mind and spirit. Limit your time with “energy vampires” and spend more time with those people that lift your spirits.

• Spend time in nature – this is a great way to offset the impact of draining work and people, as well as help you relish in the nature beauty of our country. Hit the beach, or a trail…take time out to celebrate Mother Nature and all her wonder.

• Exercise – not everyone enjoys the freedom of a body that is able to express through movement so if you can, please do! Dancing, laughing, playing and exercise actually helps detoxify your body by increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage… it does a body and mind good!

• Do nothing – the ultimate freedom…the freedom to do absolutely nothing and enjoy it without guilt or shame! Embrace some solitude and relax; get a massage or manicure, whatever allows your mind and body to completely relax and let go. Celebrate your independence this July 4th by taking care of yourself and the planet, naturally.

Happy Fourth of July!!!

Father TIPS for living a Quality of Life

Men…Father’s need some unwinding and enjoy not only on Father’s Day, but every day, naturally! Please find some ideas below so you if you are a DAD or pass along these tips to your DAD or a special someone!

  • Get back to nature: Go to the beach and relax; take a long walk or jog; go kayaking. Even a few hours in nature can have a profound
    effect on your body, mind and spirit!
  • Enjoy being a dad: Have fun with family, naturally! Watch a movie together, play a game, enjoy a picnic lunch or snacks under the stars.  
  • Go ahead, GRILL: It’s Dad’s day so prepare his favorite meal or serve as his sous chef, prepping and cleaning while allowing him the glory of the grill.
  • Gadgets: Can be great stress relievers! Rubik’s cubes, that much desired espresso machine, the latest and greatest kitchen utensil or even a lawnmower – when wanted – they help make life easier and that alone helps reduce stress!
  • Get intimate: Being intimate with your partner reduces stress by getting your mind off your problems and, like other forms of physical activity, it has a positive effect on your blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, etc.
  • Good nutrition: A balanced and healthy diet is fuel for the body and brain. Getting plenty of veggies, fruits and protein, along with drinking plenty of filtered water, provides the essential building blocks the body needs to remain healthy and active, naturally.
  • Turn-on the tunes: Research shows that certain audio frequencies can modify your brain activity. So try listening to something inspirational or pleasant before you sleep.
  • Hang-out with your friends: Whether it’s attending a sporting event, game night/poker night, or playing a pick-up game of BB, time with friends
  • Enjoy some solo time: No friends, no family – just you and a book, movie, hot shower or bath, even going for a walk or drive.
  • Massage: It relaxes and nourishes the body, mind and spirit, naturally!
