Tips To Remember Your Own Oxygen Mask First + #ONatural Giveaway

It is about taking the time to breathe, relax, read a magazine, sit and enjoy a mindful moment. Taking my vitamins, eating a well-balanced meal three times a day without in taking the foods that cause my body inflammation. It is about drinking lots of water and enjoying my tea without reheating it three times first. It is all about carving out the time to enjoy moments with my husband even if it is sushi take out once the kids are in bed. It is about knowing my limits and knowing when to walk away and refocus.
