Are You Stuck? Finding your way back to Fulfillment.

Are you feeling stuck? Or are you at a crossroads? The place where, you aren’t satisfied and you know staying still is not an option, but you don’t know which road to choose. You feel directionless. If so, you are not alone. When we were children, we were so clear about what we wanted and what we didn’t want. As we get older, though, obligations, responsibilities, societal expectations become the primary drivers of our decision-making and we slowly lose touch with what makes our souls sing.

Insomnia is the chief reason for under eye bagginess.  Restore your sleep with the help of your health practitioner and say goodbye to the bags. You’ll see changes instantly by avoiding the three biggest offenders that cause water retention and swelling: Alcohol, Sugar, and Salt. You could stop reading right here, and if you did those 3 things, you’d be so impressed with the results that you would go on a vacation around the world with the money you saved from unneeded, expensive eye creams, procedures, and surgery. Stay Hydrated! It may sound counterintuitive to treat excess fluid retention with more fluid, but drinking plenty of water during the day activates your kidneys, which pull excess salts and fluids from your system to eliminate. Drinking water also improves the elasticity of the skin under your eyes. Stimulate your lymphatic system by exercising during the day.  Cardiovascular exercise in particular regulates overflow, bringing fluids back into the bloodstream.  Very...
