All you need is me for your muscles

Almost everyone has had sore and aching muscles at some time. It’s then easy to reach for the anti-inflammatory warming ointments that are marketed everywhere. They promise to relieve pain. But did you know that some of them contain the poisonous substance Diclofenac. Diclofenac causes a serious threat to fish, aquatic organisms, plants, and mammals. It’s also difficult to break down in wastewater treatment plants so there’s a risk it ends up polluting our waterways. The Swedish medical products agency (Läkemedelsverket) are proposing a ban on these and other products that harm the environment in retail outlets except pharmacies. In my opinion there should be a ban on products that harm the environment everywhere. Check the ingredients in your ointments or tablets and try to avoid using one that contains Diclofenac. All the ingredients in All you need is me balm are anti-inflammatory. 100% of the ingredients are natural and 95% organic so it won’t damage the environment plus it comes in a sustainable tube made out of sugarcane. . Its lovely and soothing on tired, tight muscles, so why not try it next time? Even better if you can convince someone to give you a nice massage ;)

Protect your face from harsh weather

Walking may be the simplest and most underrated form of exercise.

There is a lot of information out there about the positives of running and lifting weights, but the simple activity of walking can provide a whole host of benefits too.

Walking is simple, free, and nearly any able-bodied person can do it.

As well as burning calories, studies show that brisk walks may help to reduce the intake of high calorie snacks by half. Walking increases bone strength, every step counts. People who walk at least 1,5km a day have a higher bone density than those who don’t.

Walking is just as effective as running for fighting major diseases.

Regular brisk walking may help to maintain a healthy weight, prevent various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Improves your cardiovascular fitness level, strengthens bones, muscles, and improves muscle endurance. May improve your mood, sleep, balance, and coordination. Builds up your immune system and reduces stress. Researchers found that walking for 30 minutes, 3 times a week for 3 months had the same mood boosting result as antidepressants.

As for myself, I have a dog who is a very fast walker, come rain or shine, I’m out there walking. I have noticed that my normal winter lows are not as bad since I got my dog Spencer. If it’s very cold or harsh weather I protect my face with All you need is me balm. Since it contains no water but let’s your skin breathe, it’s perfect for protecting the face. My best ideas and thinking also happen out there on the walks.

See you out there :)

I think most of us know that positive thoughts are good for us. But if you are like me, sometimes life speeds up or we forget to make the effort. What can help are positive affirmations (statements) but how do we remember to say those, you ask 🙄
Well, simply put your favorite affirmation on your phone and or iPad at the lock or Home Screen. Now every time I open my phone it says “Something wonderful will happen today”. It immediately puts me in a good mood 🙂
Research shows that positive affirmations may boost overall health. It can help to reduce stress and increase the neural pathways in your brain.

Holistic approach to beauty and wellness


Those who know me, know that I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to overall beauty and wellness. What we eat, how we move, what we apply to our skin and what we think is all connected. We have all probably heard about the fantastic benefits of meditation. I’ve tried doing it on my own, apps and websites with guided meditations. I stick with it for a few days but then... Now I’ve found something that works for me that I wanted to share. It still took discipline the first week, but now it’s a habit. YouTube 👍
I like the @thehonestguys for meditation and Suzanne Grace for breathing exercises and clearing your chakras. I have to say, I find myself with a more positive mind. Do you have a favorite meditation method you would like to share?
