Our mind and body connection is undeniable. Sometimes what we feel actually shows up physically, known commonly as somatic symptoms. Yet, there is ONE body part, that tends to carry emotional pain more than others.
Q: Which one?
A: THE HIPS!
Americans, on average, spend over $143,000 in a lifetime EACH on self-care methods to help de-stress, but some of the best and most effective ways to take care of ourselves can be done without spending anything. As summer approaches, MORE stress can be added, especially if you have kids at home. (Source)
On today's show, we are bringing you simple and practical ways to take care of yourself and revive your mind, life and holistic health in time for summer.
Join Lucia and guest, Megan, Clinical Psychologist (in training,) and a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. Megan has worked with a wide range of mental health conditions and people of all ages. She, like Lucia, is an advocate for holistic health and self-love and offers us some ways to find joy and self-care this summer regardless of our circumstances.

Tech is a lot like our minds. It can either be a huge asset, or a huge contributor to mental, emotional, spiritual and overall health issues.
There is however, one app I recently found that I want to share called Moody that has helped me in both mind and body acceptance on my way to reviving my happiness and wellbeing before summer.
This app is mainly for women, (although if you are male you can track your moods too:) Moody asks you to put in some key info related to your menstrual cycle that can help offer some clarity on why you may be feeling extra down, or maybe like your body has changed overnight. I know these mysteries of emotionally fluctuations, sadness, and body aches seemed like they were my fault, or I was doing something wrong for so many years when in realty the answer is that our hormones are at work each month contributing to these changes. For me, just acknowledging and staying on top of this has helped me understand, Im not just in a bad mood or sad, it's really just my hormones. Knowing that, and knowing that these changes will pass has helped me change my story and be less MOODY regardless of what time of month it is.
So if you're looking to track your moods and body more carefully for a deeper understanding and to help you on your journey to happy and well, check out the app HERE!
We all have ups and down, but knowing the story behind it can lead to greater happiness, peace and wellbeing as we ride those waves.
On yesterday's show Christina Edwards talked about a list of beauty products banned in Europe, but not the US. We did some seeking and found more info on that list HERE!

According to the American Academy of Dermatology over 85 Million Americans suffer from a skin disease. (Source) With skin issues on the rise, the APA has identified a link between mental health and skin issues, citing that both stress and mental health conditions can cause skin issues, and reversely, skin issues can cause stress and anxiety.
As summer approaches we want to help you revive your skin and reduce stress to help your mind, body and spirit soar. On today's show join me and my guest Christina Edwards, owner of Oasis European Skin Care, to give real and practical ways to revive your skin and mental health just in time for the sunshine.
