Self care tip.....
I came across this quote recently, and it really hit home on a day that I was struggling. Take a moment to read it and see how it resonates with you.
The more I started thinking about my body, the more I thought this was an amazing reminder.
- Your body can and does repair itself when given time and proper care
- Your body needs tending to in order to thrive
- Sometimes there is nothing "wrong" with your body, it just needs the right set of conditions to thrive
There are so many ways you can use this garden metaphor to support your love of your body. This concept is simple for anyone to understand. If we give our bodies the basics of quality sleep, activity, hydration, and healthy food, we will be providing our body with the care it needs to thrive.
Consider this idea during the week. Instead of being mad at your body for not working at it's peak level, become curious about what is missing to prevent your garden from flourishing.

Upcoming week intention......
After you evaluate if you are giving your body the care it needs to thrive, what can you do to provide more care for more thriving? Consider this and see if there is an area of your life to adjust to help with thriving.

One thing I am loving this week.....
One of my favorite parts of summer, are slow summer days spent relaxing outside with friends. A fun addition to those gatherings is a festive, ice cold beverage for everyone to enjoy! To accommodate everyone, I prefer to have a mocktail or non-alcoholic cocktail that still feels festive and special. Here are a ton of ideas for mocktails for you to include at your next gathering!
