What a frickin’ week- been MIA more than usual... got into an accident earlier this week (everyone is okay-thank life) and subsequently dealing with the aftermath, which included stress-induced sickness... so phone time has decreased all in all. Starting to come around and able to eat a little bit more. Part of my recovery has been REALLY focusing on holistic treatments. After the accident, I downed as much omega3s and antioxidants I could possibly to help with any type of brain oxidation/stress. Since being sick, I’ve upped my vitamin C intake, as well as plant based protein- such as collagen- to boost availability and digestibility since I haven’t been able to ingest foods that require mechanical digestion. Today’s breakfast included all the healing goodies: vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants/microbials/inflammatorys, probiotics- as well as a special immunity strengthener: CHAGA. Chaga is #2 on my #smarteatssunday Mushroom Series and for good reason. Chaga has been found to boost the immune system by regulating Cytokines, responders of your immune system that signal what needs to be fought and what does not. It acts as an adaptogen by either increasing cytokines, making a more alert immune system, or decreasing, especially important for those with autoimmunity. Chaga has been also shown to decrease oxidative stress, which plays in part with decreased inflammation from autoimmune diseases. This oxidative stress can affect our DNA. In animal studies, chaga can decrease DNA oxidative damage by 40%. Yes, these are from animal studies, but many animals have similar process’ to humans, so it won’t be long before we can see this being studied in humans. Seasons are a-changin’, stock up on your chaga now!

Liam Payne has called out The Daily Mail for implying a woman he was with was a romantic interest after his breakup with Cheryl. The Daily Mail described her as his “Mystery girl” however he says that she is a member of his team and calls out the media’s sexism. He wrote via Twitter, “My team is full of talented, smart, professional women. I find it wrong that they are reduced to being linked to me romantically in the press just for standing next to me. Isn’t it time we treat women with a bit more respect? So far the press have done this with every female member of my staff, it’s demeaning, some are in relationships and it complicates there work environment when they do this to them...I think it stops here.” The photos that emerged from the Daily Mail simply shows Liam standing next to a woman, there was no evidence or sign of any romance going on. Now Liam has rubbished the allegations and the portrayal of his female staff and women in general in the tabloid press 👏🏼 #LiamPayne#Singer#OneDirection#Member#Cheryl#MysteryWoman#DailyMail#Tabloids#Rumours#Sexism#Response#Twitter#F4f#FollowForFollow#R4r#RecentForRecent#L4l#LikeForLike

The sun will always show up after the rain. >
Right now, I want to speak to the person who feels discouraged, to the person who feels trapped, and to the person who feels like the sun will never come back.
Last week I shared on my Instagram story that a lot of disappointments just literally piled right on top of each other. No joke. One. Right. After. Another. And it just felt like the disappointment train wasn’t going to stop which made me start to feel anxious. I began to feel overwhelmed and didn’t even know where to start and unravel everything or how to even start pushing against the tide that was so desperately trying to take me under. Not going to lie, I let it bother me, I let it upset me, and I let it make me feel anxious for a couple of days. But then I thought to myself, what am I doing? Why am I allowing disappointments and outward circumstances change who I am or how I feel? That’s all me. That’s the choice that I get to have; how I let it effect me. I think sometimes we get so caught up in thinking that our circumstances and our disappointments has more power over us than we do but it doesn’t. It literally doesn’t. I want to encourage you all who may be going through some disappointments or hard circumstances in your life to really think and evaluate how you are letting those outward things control your reaction and your emotions. Then think of some ways you can learn how to combat those habitual reactions or emotions. Believe me, it’s worth doing! My disappointments have not all unraveled yet nor have they gotten better but I know that without a shadow of a doubt that
1. How I react and how I respond is my choice.
2. The sun will come after the rain even if I can’t see it yet.
3. Aside from my disappointments, there is genuinely so much to be grateful for.

@ladygaga All I can say in response to this is that I'm so proud of you. I'm proud of you for standing up for yourself, for women, and most importantly, for people who need to hear your story most. Speaking from a man's perspective, I have no place in this movement and I fully recognize my privilege not only as a male but as a white male. All that I can say is that I hope we as men can begin to take responsibility, step up to the plate, and do what is necessary to ensure that we make this world a more inclusive and safe place for women to thrive in. Speaking to sexual assault and mental health, you couldn't have spoken truer words. As someone who has been sexually abused repeatedly, it never leaves you. It worms itself long into your adult years and causes issues that negatively impact the entirety of your being. It makes you feel depressed, scared, ugly, worthless, and unlovable. More importantly, it leads to mental health issues that create serious mental and physical problems. Thank you for your speech. I hope we can walk away from it with the desire to manifest change and make the world a better place. #womenempowerment#women#movement#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#sexualassault#sexualabuse#rape#change#manifest#world#better#speech#proud#men#improve#response#ladygaga#elle#awards#responsibility#thrive#safe#privilege#recognize#truth#awareness#inclusive#hope#now
