Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Self-Care Edition
The holiday season is a busy time for everyone. While this time of year is one full of friends, family, and fun winter activities it is easy to get overwhelmed and overloaded with your ever-increasing to-do list and packed calendar. Instead of dreading the hustle and bustle, embrace it by setting aside some time to indulge in a little self-care. These are our favorite products we love to unwind and recharge.
My absolute favorite self-care item is Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay. It is the best deep pore cleanser I have ever used. I immediately saw results with my skin after using it only one time and I can truly feel it cleaning out my pores when using it. I love putting this mask on after a long day so I can head to bed feeling clean and refreshed!
As a passionate advocate for self care, it is something I try to implement in many areas of my life. One topic that I bring up a lot in my visits, is how to start you day. Adding in a self care routine to your morning is a game changer for anyone! For me, my morning can be quiet or get crazy quickly (toddler life). I always try to get up a few minutes early and start my day off with some gratitude journaling and a devotion or an inspiring book! Present over Perfect is one of my favorites!
After a busy work day or just a lot of running around on the weekends I love to unwind and do a foot soaking bath! This heated foot bath is instantly relaxing and something I can do while I read a book. I also like to add a few drops of essential oils to help with detoxing!

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONSULTATIONS FOR PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD
There is nothing that relaxes me more than a good massage. I am lucky enough to have a husband who is also a licensed massage therapist but with busy schedules, massages don’t always get around to happening. But with this foot massage roller I can easily relax after a day at work while we are catching up on our favorite tv show before bed or whenever I have a spare few minutes.
My favorite self care item is definitely a good self-help book! There is nothing quite like sitting down with my favorite blanket to read whatever book I’m currently obsessed with! Right now, its Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis; but Live Fearless, The 5 Love Languages, and Resisting Happiness (just to name a few favorites) have all provided so much healing, comfort, and growth through different seasons of my life!
