Why I am STOCKING UP On Alkaline Water This Summer! **Including Tips**

If you’re not drinking alkaline water, then I suggest you start! In case you are unaware of what alkaline water is, it is water that has a higher pH level of regular drinking water, which SHOULD have a pH level of 7. But unless you have a water purifier and pH testing strips, I would not trust drinking from the tap or random water fountains that you are unsure of. Good Alkaline water has a pH level of 8-10, anything pushing 14 is crazy alkaline!

Benefits of drinking alkaline water:

Alkaline water is proven to hydrate you much faster than regular water! Which would really come in handy during the summer on those hot, sweaty days. Some believe it has anti-aging properties, so maybe you can save money on buying the creams and masks and just buy some pH level water. It also works as a colon cleanser, skin booster, immune system supporter, and has cancer fighting benefits. You can also expect to use it as a part of your morning energizing routine! 1 glass of room temp to warm alkaline water, add a little lemon juice and BAM! You’re hydrating your organs and alkalizing your body! It also might help with bloating, bloating can be caused by the body being too acidic and some alkaline water can fix that right up!

FYI!

You can find alkaline water sources almost everywhere nowadays! If there’s a Whole Foods near you, you might try checking the water section and there is usually a water refill station that charges 99 cents for a gallon of alkaline water. To minimize waste, I have a BPA free 2 gallon water container that I refill to get my alkaline fix. Fiji water is also alkaline, Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water, Alkaline 88 Water, Spring Water, and Essence pH 10 are some of my favorites! But there’s so many, it usually will say so on the bottle.

Well, thanks for reading. Have a fun summer and drink tons of water so you’ll look and feel super good! Feel free to comment letting me know some great alkaline water brands and whatever else you want to comment!

Peace be with you all. Namaste

Why The World is Going VEGAN!

Okay, so, it’s happening. Don’t panic. Just let it.

If you’re on YouTube I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of “What I Ate Today As A Vegan” videos and “VEGAN MUKBANG” videos, celebrities promoting Veganism, it’s everywhere. It may seem like a trend that some are secretly hoping will fade soon, but, in my honest opinion, Veganism ain’t going nowhere baby!

Here’s why: People ACTUALLY enjoy it! ‘WOW! REALLY?’ YES! It’s actually enjoyable! Meat eaters and fast food lovers look at vegans as tortured, controlling, self-punishing, extreme dieters, self-righteous, or just weird. And in my case, 1 of those stereotypes are correct. I’m extremely weird. I’m a Virgo, can’t really help it. More often than not, I love being vegan, the only downsides is having to work a little harder to get good, clean food at good prices. Also, the inevitable naysayers that suddenly become doctors when I say that I’m vegan. “Oh, you’re gonna die, you can’t survive on a vegan diet.” My response is always, “Lord help us, take me now Lord!”

You may think simply directing those people to some well researched articles will do the trick, well DON’T BOTHER! Most naysayers will try to debunk even THE MOST well researched information that exists to continue with their lifestyle. Which is the funny part, because when I announce that I’m vegan, I never follow with “you should try it too,” I simply leave it as a statement for my dietary preference. But the need is still there to defend why they aren’t vegan, as if I’m the police asking about drugs. Hey, it’s cool! Not everyone has to be a Vegan, do your own thing, life is too short to follow trends. I don’t shame others for eating animal products, because not long ago, I was having cereal and milk for breakfast, getting sick and having it for breakfast again. This went on for years, insanity, doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome. It never once occurred to me that maybe I couldn’t digest milk properly because I’m not a baby COW… and perhaps I should switch to something yummier that makes me feel better like vanilla flavored almond milk! GASP! Which is so good! It’s so much better than cow pus juice! Plus it won’t give you acne or lethargy. Again… no shame.

Another thing I seem to come across and have personally experienced, is the feeling of compassion. I swear, it’s the craziest thing. Once you’re not consuming animals, you suddenly can’t bare to harm a soul! I found myself avoiding killing spiders…SPIDERS! MY SWORN ENEMY! I could no longer harm them, if I did, I would be near tears. I would get this feeling of deep shame and disappointment. The reason is, or the scientific theory of Kabreion, moi, and also research done by DOCTORS, is the karmic debt that comes with causing harm to animals is present when when you consume animals that experienced a horrible life and death. When animals are inhumanely finished for our food source, the universe sees to it that consequences are given. It’s been shown that meat eaters tend to be more aggressive than vegans, not in ALL cases, but it’s still very significant.

Consuming animal products aren’t taboo in my book, however, I still feel if we’re going to use living things as our food source, something that’s so essential to life, then what’s SO wrong with art least being humane about it? It says a lot about us as a species, how we treat our animals. Pigs show emotion, chickens, and cows show emotion. There’s nothing different from eating a dog or a pig except your perspective. Have you ever interacted with a pet pig??? They are smart as s***! They can be trained and play with you! It’s just some FOOD for thought… see what I did there? Hehe okay I’ll leave now. Bye.

At the end of the day guys, it’s your life. Judging by the looks of our planet… you might just wanna live it up immediately and be the best version if yourself. Peace be with you all. Namaste

Is Your Job An Energy Vampire?

I have never been the kind of person that can endure misery at a job for long periods of time, especially with no end in sight. I’m not even sure what kind of person that makes anybody, being that every situation is different. Some people stay at jobs they hate for many reasons, financial burden, security, even friendships. I know I’ve had a hard time leaving jobs because of the attachments formed with my coworkers, or a promised raise or vacation time that I held out for but never recieved. But in all honesty, when it comes to your well-being, is the decision to release a heavy burden that hard? Well, for some, yes.

Stop Saying “My Job.”

When you are stuck between a rock and a hard place, and you no longer have time to find the ‘perfect’ job, you might pick the fastest option. This does not mean that you have to claim the role of your new and present circumstance. If you choose to serve food for tips so that you may afford a place to sleep, awesome, but you don’t have to brand yourself as such. You are placing that title on your life and hindering yourself from moving forward faster. Once you become conscious, you need to be very careful of your words, and the titles you speak onto yourself, you can very well speak yourself into doom. Your title is: divine being having a human experience on earth. Your title is not ‘Buster’s employee.’ Your life is as fulfilled as your mind. If in your mind you are just a janitor, then that may stick around like glitter. I already consider myself all things that I wish to be, because I know well enough how powerful I am and how much damage I can do to myself if my mind isn’t in the right place.

Making A Move

Maybe it’s time to make a move. Take that literally and metaphorically. If there is someone or something about you that’s leading you to believe that we take whatever we’re dealt because it’s the easiest thing to do, maybe it’s time to make a move. It’s not ok to be unhappy, it’s not the ‘norm’, and you don’t have to get used to it. Take the time to do the things that get you closer to where you want to be in life. It doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy, but I like to imagine the face of disappointment on my future self if I waste all this precious time being unhappy. I would hate to be on the receiving end of my scowl. It’s scary.

I’m not saying to rush and jump into a random opportunity, definitely take your time, but be sure the time is used wisely. Plans will change and transform during your journey, so don’t take up too much time getting hung up on all of the details of your plans and dreams.

Don’t Ignore Red Flags

If you’re unsure if you’re just burned out or genuinely in the wrong field that doesn’t suit your life’s purpose, pay attention to signs and red flags. If your life consists of working and getting home and not having the energy to do anything productive or spiritually healing, red flag. The job you do shouldn’t prevent you from having a happy, fulfilling life. Most jobs are energy vampires, it could be your coworkers or boss, physical demands or the fact that it’s against your morals. Perhaps you’re a health advocate working in fast food, an animal lover working at kill shelters, sometimes even a teacher in a public school. With all of the limitations and challenges, many teachers don’t feel like they are performing their life’s purpose teaching because making an impact has boundaries.

There are countless jobs that can meet my list of being energy vampires. We just need to know when enough is too much. If the job you are doing isn’t YOU enough then it’s not worth it, ask yourself how YOU is this job? If you can’t make at least 3 connections from you to the job, then it’s not you.

In the meantime of figuring things out, when you get home from work, take at least 30 minutes to stretch and meditate. There are countless videos on YouTube for taking care of your mind and body, please take advantage of your resources, you have plenty. I’ll place a link to my favorite YouTube channel for yoga therapy. Take time to take care of yourself, whatever you need to get done won’t happen if you’re depleted.

Here’s a link for a free stress melt yoga session with Adriene: Yoga With Adriene, you may thank me later! Much love!

Trust that you have everything that you need. Don’t ever limit your life, health or happiness. You deserve it all. Namaste.
