Winter is upon us which also means cold season is here. I have many tricks I like to use to get over a cold quickly, which includes drinking homemade elderberry tea and eating tons of cooked mushrooms. These forms of nourishment help my body fight off infection, but they don't do much to ease the symptoms. For the stuffy nose and sore throat, I love to do a daily steam.
I absolutely love iced coffees, but sometimes it’s nice to have a cold drink that’s not so caffeinated. My sister Dominique tuned me in to Tulsi, which has a nice earthy body to it and holds its own as an iced drink.
It turns out that the Tulsi herb (also known as Holy Basil) is also pretty good for you.Tulsi is a good source of magnesium, which is an important mineral for heart health. Tulsi is also known as a stress fighter since it could help your body to maintain normal level of cortisol and help lower inflammation.
Busy used to be the measure of success. See also hustling. The pendulum is swinging back in the other direction, as more often we’re hearing about the Holy Grail of the work life balance.
I am trying to deprogram myself from the rise and grind mindset. Waking up and looking at my phone with one eye open, heart racing from the number of emails, or lack thereof, is no way to live.
