In January I joined a "green smoothie a day challenge" hosted by Simple Green Smoothies,I loved it so much that I am still going. Not every day maybe, but almost. And they are having another challenge in April, which I will definitely join. It's so good for your whole body and it's super easy. It makes a real difference to your skin, I promise! If you are a buzzing bee as well, or if you are on a pre-wedding detox this is definitely for you.
I put together a few things for you that really help me when I am flat out with work: Green Smoothies: Healthy fresh food makes all the difference, and although I don't have the time to prepare complicated meals right now, chucking some fruit and veggies into a blender and pressing a button can be done in 5min. I make a different one every day. My Favourite right now: 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 apple, 1 handful of baby spinach, 1/2 cup of soya or almond milk, 1 tsp. chia seeds, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp Supergreens Powder. This recipe makes about 3 sundae glasses of smoothie!
Comfy shoes: I do like to look somewhat professional at work and won't rock up to a shoot or wedding in flip flops (although I sometimes have to bring them along when shooting on the beach!) So: Comfortable chic shoes, that look like I am happy to work in them all day, but still somewhat stylish. The ones above are from Geox. There is nothing worse then painful feet, on a long day of work, it's so distracting, flat shoes are the way to go!
Little Lunch Break Swims: Whenever I can I sneak out for a quick swim in my lunch break, not just a little exercise and movement, but also great relaxation for sore muscles. I also get the best ideas why swimming and find it clears my head. Love Balm: So small, it fits in every pocket, it keeps my lips nicely moisturized, soothes any dehydrated areas or dry patches and makes a great cuticle balm too. It smells divine of natural rose oil too, the smell that opens the heart chakra. Jurlique Love Balm in Rose, sooo goood!
What keeps you balanced when you are super busy?
