Around five years ago, I decided to make a commitment to myself. I embraced the discipline of doing yoga every day. Before that, I used to run for 20 minutes every two days, whether it was freezing or hot outside.
Being committed to self-care does not have to be overwhelming. Even five minutes a day makes a big difference in the long run. I recommend yoga because it is gentle yet effective. I love Yoga With Adriene on YouTube.
I trust my children and try to say yes when I can but honestly, sometimes the right answer is simply no.
I feel so much healthier and happier since I took the plunge and moved south.
I am so grateful to be able to breathe at last. I used to spend days locked inside, working in an office 14 hours a day at some point.
Enjoying fresh and clean air, sunlight and being surrounded by nature makes a big difference.
My friend Justine from Blog d’une partageuse was sharing her project to move south so all I can say is “Go for it my friend my sister!”
Raising children is a luck and an honor, even though it is so challenging at times. Even if we give birth to them, kids do not belong to us. I like to remind myself that my role is very special. I am meant to be the example, not to treat them as clay to mold according to my preferences. I feel keeping in mind that they are their own person makes me a better human being.
I have never been forced to eat when I was a child thanks to my dear mother, who luckily believed in the body’s intelligence. Therefore, not forcing a child to put food into his body seems the most natural thing to do, especially when a child is sick.
I believe the body needs to focus his energy on repairing itself when it is sick, not on digesting heavy foods.
One day at school, where they force kids to eat their lunch, my son vomited just after lunch. The following day, I went to see the person in charge. I could not make my point to the school staff. They were afraid my son would faint if he did not eat.
What is your opinion my friend my sister? Peace and love and blessings to you!
Extremely rich in iron, mulberries help build strong red blood cell. They will also nourish your beautiful body with vitamins (C and K) and potassium.
In your are interested in getting antioxidants, mulberries are full of resveratrol. Although red wine has it too, I do not drink so mulberries are the way!
My last RawLiving order brought me so much joy as always because I strongly believe in the power of super foods. I hope it inspires you to take good care of yourself too my friend my sister.
