3. My health. Physical as much as mental. 
Feeling grateful really is the best feeling in the world 🙏🏼♥️

Sometimes negativity makes more of an impact than the positive people or experiences we encounter.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So next time you come across something negative, keep it in perspective. What can you learn from your mistakes? How can you show gratitude for your strengths? What can you do to celebrate your perfectly-imperfect, unique YOU?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The discovery of the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the 1980s provided researchers with a totally new perspective on the compounds in hemp and marijuana that had previously been identified 40 years earlier - that these compounds interacted with and acted on a widespread regulatory system in the human body. The name given to these compounds was phytocannabinoids (“phyto” for plant). Although most people have now heard of Cannabidiol (CBD), it is only one of many of the constituents in hemp that interact with the ECS. Two other notable phytocannabinoids include:
Cannabichromene (CBC) - CBC was first studied in the 1980s when it was found to modulate a normal inflammatory response in a rat model. More recently CBC has been shown to promote brain health, skin health, and maintain normal motility in the digestive system.
Cannabigerol (CBG) - CBG is being increasingly studied for its ability to support nervous system health. CBG has multiple functions in the ECS, including inhibiting the reuptake of anandamide, a very beneficial endocannabinoid we make in our own bodies. CBG might also provide support for immune function, skin health, and a positive mood. CBG is typically found in much higher concentrations in industrial hemp than in marijuana. Nature’s Root Chlorella Dietary Supplements will help balance your endocannabinoid system. Each tablet contains Organic Chlorella (a micro-algae with phenomenal health benefits) and 10mg of Non-GMO Phytocannabinoid rich hemp extract🌿

I spoke this week on my stories about balance with 🍸 alcohol and making sure that you’re taking care of both your mind and body.
@ketelone_us’s focus on “clean cocktails” embodies just that: clean, real ingredients 🙌🏼 that let you have fun all with good intentions.

I had a blast at their Grow Your Garnish event last night where I got to hand pick 🌱🌿 herbs and make my own cocktail. 
Being a part of the experience from “farm to glass” let me enjoy my drink even more!
_
Remember to always stay true to you.
Find your balance.
And of course, 💃🏼 have a little fun!

“YOU CHANGED MY LIFE WITH ONE SENTENCE”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... is what a woman told me yesterday, honesty and gratitude shining in her eyes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last week, she asked me for tips to slim down her thighs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I told her the physical steps to doing so, but also asked her:
“Would having slimmer thighs actually make your life better? Would all that effort and sacrifice really pay off?”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The surprise and uncertainty on her face told me that she had never considered that. 
She hadn’t considered that the “perfect” body we are conditioned to desire comes with consequences.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She hadn’t considered that changing her body to fit the mold wouldn’t even yield a “net positive”.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because we’re all made to believe that being...
Thinner
Prettier
More desirable
... would somehow automatically make life BETTER.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve tested that theory. I’ve done the “no days off”, tunnel vision thing.. and guess what? I was even LESS happy than before.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because at the end of the day, we’re all just looking for PERMISSION to embrace what we already have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all want to be able to just ENJOY this body we live in.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So when I told her this one sentence:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “there’s nothing wrong with having thick thighs”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
... it was like I turned her world upside down.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She had never considered the option to just EMBRACE her current body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that realization changed her life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s not to say that I’m anyone special or that it was ONLY me who could deliver that message. I just happened to be the one who delivered that truth to her. Right place, right time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s also not to say that you CAN’T have physique goals. But they shouldn’t stem from a lack of self-acceptance or a belief that changing your body will change your mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So please consider that you’re perfectly imperfect, just the way you are.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Consider that evolving your mindset and relationship with yourself might be what you need, not changing your body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Consider that you don’t NEED to change, but you CAN if your heart + mind are working together ❤️

Where do you become most creative? I find that forcing creativity limits my potential. I am currently planning my upcoming series for @alo.moves and it is times like these where I feel most Inspired - creating moves on the sand with the waves behind me, planning classes under the influence of nature, allowing ideas to bubble to the surface in a natural way. If you are in a creative industry, it is crucial that you create an environment where your creativity can thrive and inspiration can bloom.
