Health, Happiness, & You
Hello everyone! I wanted to blog about something that I feel like I have to share with all of you. We all come from different walks of life and we all live different lives. But there are some things I really want to stress that everyone should be thinking about! You’ve followed my blog because you share the same thing as me: acne.
But what I want to share with you today isn’t necessarily the cure to acne but I will share tips with you that will help your skin, with me as your living proof.
Being healthy is more than just eating fruits and vegetables and going to the gym. It’s more about you and how you treat your body in every way possible.
Here are some things that I feel like everyone should follow. It’s more of the non-Conventional medicine type of tips. :)
1. You are what you eat. So therefore, your skin shows what you’ve been eating. Ever notice being in a food coma after you eat out at that buffet or getting 20 chicken nuggets at McDonald’s? It’s not good despite how good the sleep feels afterwards. After a month of eating healthy (and NOT taking my skin pills), I find that I wake up better, feel better during the day, crave less of the junk food, and my skin improved! My hair grew more and my nails grew faster and are stronger. I feel like a new woman, inside and out. It’s better to eat healthier than to rely on supplements to do all the work for us. :) I’ll write up a post about what I ate during my healthy month soon!
2. Your body is your biggest investment. What’s the better choice? That high paying job that will help pay your medical bills or not having to pay medical bills at all? If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, it’s the second choice. Of course, I’m not saying you can’t have both (a good job and a good body) but what I’m trying to say is that your body is something you should cherish the most. In the end, our skeletons in our graves are all the same. No one can tell you apart from another body of bones.
3. You are what you think. Ever notice that if you wake up feeling terrible, you just think more about your negative emotions and the day just seems to be bad all the way through? Stop that. Don’t think that way and don’t be that way. Tell yourself that you are beautiful, each day will be a good one and you will conquer them. Carpe diem! Also, what you think of yourself is the most powerful energy ever. Seriously. If you hate yourself and always find flaws, you will never be happy. Just as you continue to gossip about other people (with other people), you guys will never be happy for them. Why does a celebrity’s marriage or outfit matter? It doesn’t and it shouldn’t. You are the most important person in your life. Love yourself first and always.
4. The world won’t change, only the way you see it. Change your perspective and your whole world will change. The world isn’t perfect but you aren’t either. Help make the world a better place and the first thing to do is with yourself. Look in the mirror and ask what you can do to leave the world in a better place than when you first came into it. It doesn’t have to be big. You don’t have to find the cure to cancer or donate a million dollars to a charity. Sometimes, the littlest things mean the most. Do things because you genuinely want to, not because you want some good karma back. Treat your unemployed friend to lunch. Write your professor a thank-you note because you’ve wholeheartedly loved their class, not because you want an A. Volunteer and don’t half-ass your help just because you’re helping for free. Compliment a stranger and really mean it. Treat everyone like it’s their last day on Earth. Small things make the biggest impact.
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer but remember, always wear sunscreen! :-) If you’re still in school, good luck on finals and push through! But don’t forget to wash your face at night! Haha
