Need a quick mood booster ? Head to a garden center or botanical gardens. In a recent study of 2000 adults, 60% felt an overall increase in general happiness after a visit. Being surrounded by plants reduces stress and improves positive feelings.
Why not choose dark chocolate 🍫 in that case ? Anything above 70% cocoa is good but more is even better. I think it’s a habit thing and you can work your way up. Start with 70%. I’m now at 90% and find chocolate with 70% cocoa far too sweet.
Dark chocolate may have health benefits as it is naturally high in iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Another benefit of dark chocolate is that it is high in flavonoids and antioxidants. It has been compared to ‘super fruits’ because of their concentrated source of these phytonutrients, which are higher than those in pomegranates and blueberries. But of course it’s a high fat food and a healthy portion size would not be more than 20 grams. That’s about six small squares.
Enjoy your weekend 🤩

Some of the reasons you should choose organic skincare products. Not only are organic skincare products preferable for the environment as organic farming procedures are better, they are also beneficial to wildlife as well. These practices produce less dangerous waste from fertilizers and pesticides. Up to 100% of organic skincare products contain active ingredients. In synthetic skincare products, active ingredients usually only make up 5-10% of its contents. To further prove this point, natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and become more powerful together.
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?
