Do you make time everyday to take care of the wonderful you? And I mean, more than the basic, keep you alive stuff… I’m talking the stuff that makes you feel special. The things that help you feel relaxed. Soothing habits that de-stress you. Feel good activities that support your well-being. Or just the little things that make you happy.
Self care is a form of self love. And that, my friends, is the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. Because, when you love and care for yourself, you take care of yourself and make choices from a kind, loving place. So let’s work on our relationships with our incredible selves and get our self care on!
A lot of lovely things come naturally to me: I can easily create delicious, healthy recipes, I’m fairly skilled in guitar and music in general, I have a knack for numbers… but one unfortunate thing that always came easily is plaque and cavities. My entire life I’ve dreaded each visit to the dentist, knowing there was likely something unpleasant to discuss. I have TMJ dysfunction (that’s thankfully under control), I wore braces for 6 years and I’ve received more x-rays, needles and time in the dentist’s chair than I’m happy to recount. When I discovered that many autoimmune disease have a negative effect on dental health I knew I had to spice up my dental health care game in order to avoid any unpleasantry. I take my dental hygiene very seriously! Which is why I was stoked to discover coconut oil pulling.
