You may have noticed that I talk about anxiety and sleep on this site. A few years ago I spoke with Dr. Divi Chandna, a physician of mind-body medicine about both depression and anxiety. It was pretty profound. I even talk about it in my intro video to EatLifeBalance.com where my stressful corporate job and an unbalanced lifestyle led me to anxiety issues. And, over this summer, I wrote a post on the 10 Ways To Upgrade Your Sleep – these are my essential must have’s for the healthiest zzzz’s.
Healthy cocktails are such a thing, right? Well, this Turmeric Gin & Ginger Cocktail is exactly that and it will make a winning statement at your next holiday party. But, if you’re not into the Gin (or alcohol for that matter) just simply remove it.
It’s Sunday morning and I’m in a Seattle coffee shop after waking from a deep, restful sleep in my hotel room. James and I often go to Seattle (Bellevue to be exact) to start the holiday season off. If you’re in the area, Bellevue starts their annual Snowflake parade which just zaps you into the holiday spirit immediately! We’re also here to do a little bit of shopping too and to relax before the craziness of the holidays begin.
I’ve been pretty committed about reducing my sugar intake including fruit. I know, we’re always told to eat our fruit because they ARE rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibre. However, if you have any blood sugar imbalances, watching your sugar intake is critical in balancing them out.
I’m back with all my favourite products that I was introduced to or loving this summer! We’ve got a supplement to support digestive health and to improve the health of your skin, hair and nails (it’s also a bulletproof coffee / fat fuelled coffee favourite!). A detox tea that tastes so delicious that you won’t even know that it’s cleansing you from the inside. My new favourite nutritional shake (and I never thought I would be swayed from my favourite). And, two supplements to help all you career-driven women with your digestion woes!

What I have learned in my own wellness journey is that only I can make the changes that will impact my health. It is my choice to pick up that candy bar. It is my choice to make a nutritious smoothie every morning. It is definitely my choice if I choose to surf Instagram versus trying to get a restful sleep.
I was on a road trip with my husband last week. Our original plan this week was for me to work half of the week and then run up to Whistler for the remainder to celebrate my 4 year wedding anniversary with James. But, things quickly changed as my Mother-in-law was suddenly hospitalized and we spent a few touch and go days. Thankfully, she is slowly recovering and all is good.
