When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too - Paulo Coelho. #holisticunited #holisticgram #holisticquotes

Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now. #holisticunited #holisticquotes #holisticgram

Cleaning a house naturally is not any more difficult than cleaning it with harsh chemicals. It improves indoor air quality and is much safer, especially for children.
We’ve switched entirely to natural cleaning products and our house is just as clean (or cleaner!). I don’t have to worry about... see more the kids getting sick if they lick the floors. (What, your kids don’t do that?)

Over the years, essential oils have found a place in every home. They smell great, kill germs, and don’t have a bunch of chemicals. You might even use them to clean surfaces like countertops and windows. Plus, when used in a diffuser, essential oils fill the room with incredible aromas. But their... see more benefits don’t stop there.
According to various studies, the anti-microbial properties stay intact when oils are diffused into the air. This is pretty amazing news, considering that air happens to be what you breathe! It is especially useful during flu season or if you live with someone with a bad cold. After all, disinfecting surfaces is only one part of your home. The air is home to even more toxins, germs, and everything in between. That’s why purifying the air with these five essential oils is such a smart move.

There is certainly value in doing a spiritual practice regularly, every day, even when you really don't want to.
This is especially true for meditation. You see, in meditation practice the not wanting to do it is as much grist for the mill of meditation as wanting to do it. All of these thoughts are... see more something you can play with, in your mind, that’s very exquisite. But it's a delicate balance that needs to transpire inside oneself. You need to recognize that if you use too much of a negative tone around your practice—too much resistance—that you may have to take a break from it for a while, before you can come back later on with a fresh perspective.
My suggestion is that you set aside a regular time each day for your practice. You say, in effect, "I’m spending so much time brushing my teeth. I’m spending so much time going to the toilet. I’m spending so much time feeding my body. I am spending so much time feeding my spirit, awakening into my soul. This is what I’m doing." This is a time that is sacred. It’s not a time when the telephone can ring; it’s not a time when people can take your attention away. It’s a time when you respect your practice enough to simply say to the people around you, "This is my practice time."
Study, in this sense, is vibrating with information until you become one with it.So, you need to be disciplined, but not too violent. Don’t get ahead of yourself. And if you feel it’s too rigid, stop for a while and try other approaches. Keep allowing the eclecticism to go until you feel pulled genuinely into a deeper process. Keeping that in mind, here are three of my favorite fundamental spiritual practices to throw into your mix:

Being present. With Thanksgiving in just a few short weeks and the craziness of the holidays in full swing soon, the habit of being present is something that’s top of mind for us here at NS. Now, more than ever is a good time to explore ways to practice mindfulness so that we can show up to our friends... see more and family, and enjoy each and every gathering. Here’s why you should stop daydreaming and tips to get started.
“Being present” is abstract a thought as can be, but it’s one that I’m really passionate about and one that’s aligned with the NS pillars of health. It’s actually something I started to think about after reading The Power of Now years ago. And since then, and after reading the book a dozen more times (it’s that good), I’ve found that being present is the secret sauce to happiness in everyday life. It helps us avoid the “if-then” scenarios and in turn, encourages us to let light the in with new experiences and deeper connections. Thoughts like “If I lose this weight, I’ll find a boyfriend” and “if I get this job, I’ll finally be fulfilled” are all damaging, and they’re the opposite of being present at its core.
So what does being present really look like?

Plant-based foods don’t just ensure that you leave a smaller carbon footprint behind, they also happen to be extremely nutrient-rich.
Let’s look at a few other pressing reasons why you should eat more plant-based foods.
1. They Provide Energy
The body needs to produce enzymes for the digestion... see more process. And production of these enzymes needs energy, which causes some stress in the system. And as we get older, our enzyme production slows down, and it helps to consume enzyme rich foods, so that this strain on the enzyme-production system is lowered. A plant-based diet, especially raw foods are easily digested and absorbed, which translates into a net gain in the energy levels. Food cooked above 118 degrees Fahrenheit destroys these enzymes.
