Mindful Makeover

Mindful, Beauty

The middle of the week is a perfect excuse for a mini makeover. By Wednesday most of us are consumed with outside circumstances and the expectations of others and sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.  Applying these four key concepts to your Wednesday routine will rejuvenate both body and mind. 

BEAUTY- Tweaking and polishing your appearance will do wonders for your subconscious mind. Cut, file and apply a fresh coat of polish to your nails. Touch up your eyebrows, but don't get carried away. Condition your hair with a leave-in conditioner. Apply some self tanner for a healthy glow. 

EXERCISE- Whether it's yoga, weight training, or HIT, be sure to squeeze in at least 15 minutes. Raising your heart level, reeving your metabolism, and most importantly increasing endorphins will naturally boost your mood.

NUTRITION- Rid yourself of processed, sugar loaded foods; their immediate gratification will only backfire. Instead, opt for fresh fruits and legumes. Tea, especially fresh ginger tea is a great alternative to soda. Combine freshly grated ginger and lemon juice to a hot cup of water and volia!

MINDFUL- Spend a few quite minutes meditating on everything you are grateful for. The transformative power of giving gratitude is extremely healing. Gratitude is generated from thought. Thought is energy. When energy builds up it manifests in the form in which it is directed.
