It was a blast to plan out an Instagram contest with a fellow entrepreneur who takes center on healthful living. Be sure to follow @theConureLife and @LiveConscientiousLiveHealthful on Instagram to play along.
It starts on February 13th (US time) which also happens to coincide with “National Self Love Day”.
The daily themes center on healthful habits and behaviors that can be easily and consistently addressed, such as hydration, breathing, eliminating negative facets that don’t serve you, movement, and appropriate rest.
Additional ideas for you to “Live Out Your Joy” can be found in this Mind Body Green article, 10 Everyday Choices for a Soul-centered, Joyous Life. I also love this article written by Eric Barke, How to Live Joyously Like an Old Person, that gains perspective on joy from our elder population.
Feel free to join us!

Personally, I have always had a sweet spot for Valentine’s Day themed merchandise and, in the past, have found creative ways to incorporate heart themed decor into multiple faucets. Admittedly, I had a subtly themed “XOXO”, hearts, and lips themed bathroom in my early 20’s. Obviously, I grew out of it!
These days, I pay more care to purchasing decisions with focus on eco-friendly, holistic, and practical choices. Still, a little of the fun of red, pink, and white can catch my eye. A few deals going on before the holiday include a Free 3-piece lip set with $75 purchase from 100% Pure cosmetics.
I’ve mentioned artisan made puravida bracelets in past posts. Don’t miss out on their Limited Edition Valentine’s Day Gem or any of their Pura Vida’s Charity Collection. Be sure to take advantage of $20 off a purchase of $75 OR $10 of $50 through February 28th AND always Free Shipping on orders $25 or more!
Finally, for a more subtle reflection of “love” consider supporting Thistle Farms which helps to employ 1,500+ women healing from prostitution, trafficking, and addiction. Their $25 Lavender Bouquet Gift Box could be the perfect (not to mention relaxing) alternative to cut flowers.

“I learned again and again in my life, until you get your own act together, you’re not ready for Big Love. What you are ready for is one of those codependent relationships where you desperately need a partner.” ~ Bruce H. Lipton
It’s not officially February, but it will be this week. Seeing it’s a short month, I thought we could get started. I will be focused on Love, Life, Balance for a monthly wellness theme.
Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, possibly most known for authoring The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles, is actually a biologist by trade, but has proved to be both scientific and inspirational in reminding us to place emphasis on the role beliefs and perceptions have with respect to our overall physiological health.
One of his subtle reminders (or perhaps not that subtle…) seemed like a great place to start to intertwine the role of “love” into our daily lives, perspective, balance of our many priorities, and our overall health. Keep following this month for further wellness motivation, insight, and sometimes a little fun centered around this theme.
