Over the summer, I took a much needed vacation to San Destin, Florida. While away from the office for about a week was sort of scary but it was definitely long overdue. The beaches were absolutely stunning and the white sands were a dream.
Seeing different parts of the world can be therapeutic and refreshing to the mind. Our own cultures are important however, we must all take the initiative to understand how others live in order to build unity worldwide. Exploring brings about a new level of knowledge and wisdom.
It’s also imperative to spend these rare occasions with the ones you love. Who knows, maybe a getaway will bring new friends and distant family into your life as well. I truly enjoyed the natives of San Destin. They were laid back and knew a thing or two about having fun. Which is what I’d been missing for a very long time. Take a look at the gorgeous photos I captured while there.
Taking care of the mind, body and soul is the new wealth and I’m so in love with it. I would encourage everyone to focus on these important aspects of your lives and then everything else. What I learned recently is, you can’t possibly take care of anyone else until you take care of yourself first and foremost. If you are a giver and an empath like myself, it will be hard no doubt but it must be done regardless. The ones who are in your lives should always be super encouraging of your new self-care routine and if they’re not then it may not be real love. Go out and enjoy life and be happy. It’s up to you.
Everyone secretly wishes to belong

As most of you know, by day I work for a large insurance firm. For the most part I am working in an office space in front of a computer, which can be somewhat draining and tiring. That is one of the main reasons that I became a self care advocate. There are five agents that I am in charge of while there and many times I hear myself preaching to them about different topics.
We work almost every Saturday. So today was a great day to lighten up the mood and let our hair down so to speak. This was the perfect opportunity for me to raise the vibrations in our little corporate world. Mental health has been one of my top priorities lately.
I purchased an awesome Himalayan Salt Bluetooth speaker that is incredibly loud for it’s size so we turned it up to the max. The music was blasting, my agents were tapping their feet, I was snapping my fingers and singing over the music. All of this was going on as we dominated our marketing and sales goals. I believe this helped us tremendously!
The Himalayan Salt is built into the top of the speaker. Having a blast, making money and improving our health all at the same time. Now, that’s what I call multitasking! With that being said, I’d like to share with you some of the amazing benefits of Himalayan Salt below:
- Create an electrolyte balance
- Great way to increase your hydration
- Regulates water content both inside and outside of our cells
- Balance PH (alkaline/acidity) and helps to reduce acid reflux
- Prevents of muscle cramping
- Helps with proper metabolism functioning
- Strengthen bones
- Lowers blood pressure
Another great way to treat yourself is to lay back and spend time reading some great material. Here is a link to my book page below: https://wp.me/p63RfY-1gj
