Making time for self-care is important for your overall health. From watching the news every hour to scrolling social media a little too much, it’s easy to get lost in the noise of what’s going on around us. And you’re not alone in this. If you’ve found yourself in an extended state of self-quarantine, there are some simple steps you can take to protect your mental health, in addition to your physical health. What is a quarantine? A quarantine is a period of time where someone stays at home. It’s the next step in physical distancing to “flatten the curve,” or slow the rate of infection. Isolation – different from quarantine – is when someone who is waiting to be tested for COVID-19, waiting for their test results or has tested positive is secluded to prevent them from spreading the virus to others.
Hummus is a Mediterranean spread made by combining chickpeas, olive oil, lemon, garlic and a sesame paste called tahini. These ingredients each contain health-promoting nutrients and when combined, form a dish packed with many health benefits. Add hummus to your diet to help with weight management, regulate your digestive system and reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Weight Management Chickpeas contain a significant amount of fiber and protein. Both fiber and protein have a high satiety value, meaning they can keep you feeling full for longer. While the protein and fiber keep you full, the carbohydrates in hummus can provide you with the energy you need until your next meal. Since hummus contains, on average, only 25 calories per tablespoon, it can be particularly useful for curbing your appetite when trying to lose or maintain weight.

We have all experienced loss, heartache, and sorrow. Nobody wants to go through emotional pain, but it is an inevitable human experience. As the Buddha taught, we are each given ten thousand joys and ten thousand sorrows. The challenge lies in not getting mired in either the joy or the pain, keeping our hearts open and soft instead of closed and constricted. If we hold on to the hurts and wounds of the past, we start to accumulate emotional baggage—the dead weight of old experiences. Read on HERE.
Teeth whitening is a multi-billion dollar industry, but unfortunately many teeth whitening treatments contain harsh chemicals that can leave teeth feeling sensitive for a long time. I wanted to find natural ways to whiten my teeth that not only worked well, but were also safe. Since chemicals can easily absorb through the sensitive skin in the mouth, I wanted to only use options that were safe enough to eat. Of course, none of these things are a replacement for normal dental care and I asked my dentist before using these (you should too!). I’ve found that these methods work great along side my normal brushing and flossing routine.
