5 ways I’m working on balance in 2016

 

Overall health (physical, mental and spiritual) is of great importance to me year round.¬†But since it’s a new year, I decided to gt a bit more formal in my efforts to feel my best. So, I’ve compiled a little list of 5 things I’m prioritizing daily that have helped me feel calmer and more balanced.

1) Eat a rainbow every day. I try to eat as many brightly coloured fruits and vegetables as I can every day. Whether its a salad, some fruit, a blended smoothie or some steamed veggies with dinner I try to get at least 5 servings a day. This has made a huge difference for me in terms of energy levels and overall health. If you’re concerned about budget there are plenty of tools floating around the internet that can tell you what fruits and vegetables are in season and will be the cheapest to purchase ūüėČ

2) Get enough sleep. I used to think that 5 or 6 hours was plenty of rest. Not true! I suffer from chronic anxiety and OCD. I can function on 6 hours of sleep, but I’m always more anxious, less patient and less effective. If getting 8+ hours of sleep is just not going to happen, try¬†dedicating an hour before sleeping to doing something calming. Reading before bed is my favourite way to wind down.

3) Drink¬†water.¬†Pop, juice, coffee and regular tea don’t count (UNFORTUNATELY- love me some coffee)! Plain older water is great, but decaffeinated herbal teas are excellent too and can actually be a great way to get more vitamins and nutrients. I’m a big fan of chamomile before bed and also enjoy red raspberry leaf any time of day.

4) Meditate every day. This is […]

How to make your own fizzing bath salts.

Fizzing bath salts are a fun item to make yourself! Pamper yourself for super cheap or make gifts for friends and family.

Fizzing bath salts fizz because of a neutralization reaction between the base sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and the acid citric acid. This reaction occurs when the salts are poured into water. The acid and base are distributed throughout the water and chemically react with one another to produce carbon dioxide which produces the bubbles.

The main ingredients you will need are: Citric acid, baking soda, epsom salts and cornstarch.

The citric acid and baking soda are the key reaction ingredients, so why the epsom salts and cornstarch?

Corn starch helps to absorb moisture int he air and keeps the citric acid and baking soda from reacting with one another before you sprinkle them into water. Epsom salts are excellent for sore muscles and helping you detox while you soak in the tub.

So how do we turn these easy to find ingredients (Bulk Barn carries all of them) into fun bath salts?

The general rule of thumb is 1 part citric acid: 1 part epsom salts: 1 part corn starch: 2 parts baking soda. I’m not providing a unit of measure because you can choose that yourself. You could use 1/2 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 cup for a large volume or use teaspoons or tablespoons for a smaller volume.

 

Once you’ve mixed together your base ingredients you can get creative by adding fun additives! Add a few drops of an all natural food colouring to change up the colour. Add a few drops of essential oils for scent and you can also add dried flowers to make them look fancy.

Package them up in a mason jar to keep […]
