Feel Good Green Smoothie

You know when your body just doesn’t feel completely right? It may be because you indulged the day before or you’re coming down with a cold, or you simply feel stagnant and want to feel refreshed? I’ve become more aware of this feeling – not that I feel it more, but I’ve tuned more into how my body feels. So naturally, instead of trying to ignore a sluggish feeling, I try to be mindful in understanding what my body is telling me and what it needs to feel better. Although I may not always get it right, these 3 combos usually heal most of my slow-moving moments:

  1. Feel Good Green Smoothie
  2. Sleep
  3. Lots of water or a cup of herbal tea

Its remarkable what a little self reflection and self care can do to get us out of a funk and regain our energy and sense of wellbeing. I’d love to hear in the comments, what self-care gets you back on track?
