Self-Care And The Need To Finally Take Care Of Yourself [10-Point List]

Ann Boone

Today I wish you grace. Today I offer you 5 minutes to finally pay attention to the one person you always neglect -- yourself.

It doesn't matter who you are. You are pulled in different directions, always moments away from someone needing something. There is no rest. There is no quiet. There is no time to just be. In the pursuit of being everything to everyone, you are nobody to yourself. With each day, you feel more tired, more drained, and the years pass all the same. Your health isn't where it needs to be. You have sacrificed yourself for everyone else.

Fall - A Time For Transformation

Ann Boone

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald

A favorite quote that I am sure you will see across your Instagram and Facebook feeds, but he's right. There is something so refreshing about the leaves falling. Shedding the heat, the dead leaves, and embracing the calm serenity that comes from autumn.

Natural Beauty Products and Healing

Ann Boone

How do the beauty products we use every day affect our skin and ultimately our health? What can we do when our skin is affected due to health issues? Mental and emotional stress often finds physical ways to express itself. It usually affects our skin. For many people including myself with bad acne when I was younger, having skin problems can have a detrimental effect on our self-confidence and feeling well. 

This is the story of a good friend of mine, Nupur Kaili, who was our special guest at the last Health and Healing Market in the Maidenhead Healing Centre. We were treated with hand massages, natural scrubs, oils, creams, and salts. All with delightful perfumes and textures.

A Plant-Based Approach to Life: Vegan Food and Healing

Ann Boone

It’s time to trade in your knife for a fork or spoon. It’s time to showcase that eating for life should take life away from something else. How does the saying go… “Take a bite out of life”? That phrase holds more and more weight as we take a deeper and darker look at what we truly bite into for our daily lives and why things need to change. It’s time to step away from the meat.
