Self Care Is Not Selfish.

For as long as I can remember, I've always been taught that our bodies have this amazing ability to heal itself. The only way it can be done is by proper nutrition, exercise, moderate in habits and being mindful. That's a lot to take in for a kid but as I got older and seeing the wisdom behind it, I really started to appreciate this gift of life even more!

It's 2017 and I've lost a total of three family members to cancer and numerous family members who have diabetes, high blood pressure and other  chronic illness.   I don't want to become another "statistic" because life is too busy to take care of myself.

I'm learning through this journey called life, that it's predictably unpredictable and I  can't control things. However, I can do my part when it comes to preventative measures. These preventative measures include adopting new eating habits, regular massages, facials and communication with close friends. Also, by me sharing this new lifestyle with you, it helps to reinforce the commitment that I've made.

Looking at life through the eyes of a child is like putting on brand new pair of glasses. We as adults tend to overcomplicate things. Children are simple and straight to the point. They actually enjoy stopping to smell the roses. I encourage you to do the same. Join me as I continue down  #thebasics  road. Slow down and enjoy the little things in life, for the little things are the big things
