Thinking out loud Thursday

Just a few more rambling thoughts and images that have given me the inspiration and motivation today. 
Surrounding yourself with like minded people is so important to your success. If they have big dreams just like you, you are more likely to follow through with your own. 

"Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.” - Life’s Little Instructions

Filling yourself with the right fuel is the perfect way to start your day. I've had some huge huge inspiration from Vanilla Crunnch on Instagram today or her website here: 

And once you mix one of her beautiful breakfasts with a packet of Vida Glow you're set for the day. I plan on mixing it in with my smoothies when I get home every morning. Give back your body the extra nutrition it needs for healthy glowing skin, nails and hair. Collegen is a natural substance found in our connective tissues, and as we age we start to lose it. 

While I'm at it and feeling like I should treat my body and since Skinny Me Tea was having a 50% off sale (and the fact I always go online shopping on pay day) I grabbed a few things today. I'm curious to see what products they're going to bring out next! I've signed up to their newsletter so I'll be the first to know what's going on. 

With the Happy Tea from Your Tea I've copied it's blurb because I can't put in words how amazing I have heard this tea is.. 
"Barbary Wolfberry Fruit or Go Qi Zi as it’s known in China, is a very effective little berry that helps to cleanse and tone the blood. For this reason it helps to awaken the body and the senses leaving you feeling fabulous. It also helps that it’s a little package full of antioxidants – the very things that help to clean up the damage that stress leaves behind.

Happy Tea also contains another favorite Chinese fruit of mine – Shan Zha or Hawthorn Fruit. These little delicious apple like fruits are amazing on digestion.They help to move any stagnated or accumulated food through the digestive tract and have a very calming effect on the gut in general. Shan Zha can be used to calm down a sensitive stomach or if there are digestive issues. It’s very gentle and safe and tastes delicious!

Both Chrysanthemum and Rose Flower both have an extremely calming effect on the body. Chrysanthemum is known for its ability to brighten the eyes and awaken he senses and is used in Chinese Medicine to clear out heat from the body when perhaps there are headaches or rashes (from heat like sun exposure). Again they both help to calm the digestive system but what’s more, Rose Flower assists in aiding menstrual issues like PMS and menstrual pain. It is able to facilitate blood flow around the body to overall improve circulation and generally support the body – this creating a heightened sense of wellbeing.

Lemon is an all time cleansing favourite – when the body is well cleansed, it works on an entirely different level – for the better. Lemon is useful for this reason – it helps to also brighten the eyes and give a sense of wakefulness as it invigorates. It’s quite commonly recognised a glass of warm lemon water first up in the morning helps to kick along the liver. This also helps the body to digest and ensure the bowels are happy too, eliminating bloating and irritable bowel issues.

This formula is nicely tied together with Chiense Red Tea. Red tea is wonderful as it generally supports the immune system and is also full of antioxidants." 

“If you look good, you feel good.”

We always assume that putting on a new outfit, or getting our hair done can make us look good, and therefore feel good. This in turn helps us to act and feel more confident. But what if looking good is actually a side effect of being healthy? Of feeling good?

That prompted me to think about the question, which one comes first: feeling good or looking good? 

To me, it's feeling good. Once you start feeling good on the inside nothing seems as bad to you anymore. So when you see your reflection you're too happy to notice what you used to think were flaws. So let's make our homework for the rest of our lives making ourselves feel good on the inside. Using chemical free organic products to treat our bodies.
