Overcoming Barriers to Staying Healthy

You might be at a point in the year when you’re struggling to keep the new year’s health resolutions you made and you’re falling back to old habits. Old habits die hard, but they don’t have to in your case! Here’s a list of some of the most common barriers to staying healthy and how to overcome them

12 Days of Self Care

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it again, the holidays are crazy! Whether you’re running around picking up presents, visiting relatives, or going on vacation, it can get overwhelming. The pressures and expectations of the holidays make it easy to overlook why we even celebrate them in the first place! It’s a time to be with people you love and to spread cheer. But there’s one person you probably forget about each and every year…. Yourself! Last year I remember being way too stressed and couldn’t enjoy myself fully.

Celebrate Honey

Honey is such a versatile product. Not only is it nutritious, honey also builds your immune system, energizes you, beautifies you, treats wounds, and it can improve your scalp and be a great moisturizer. If you want to get the best out of your honey make sure it’s raw. Raw honey contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes as opposed to refined honey. We have many local honeys here at Down to Earth… come in and check them out! (My fav is Manoa honey.)

Treat Yo’ Self

March is Women’s History Month, nationally highlighting the contributions of women to events in history and society. This is a month for we women to treat ourselves!  Treating yourself can be as simple as just taking some time to yourself, reading your favorite book, getting a facial or hair treatment, going on a picnic with friends, taking a walk, baking cookies, watching the sunset, taking a bubble bath (my fav.), taking a nap, or watching a movie.

Here are some recipes for homemade face and hair masks:
