"BEAUTY IS THE EFFORTLESS COMFORT OF BEING YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF, FEARLESSLY”
RITUAL • What are your daily inner + outer rituals to cultivate beauty and radiance?
I start my day with a tall glass of water to give my insides a bath. Then I just use witch hazel on a cotton swap on my face. At night, I shower or bathe and wash my face with hemp oil. I also put castor oil on my eyelashes with q-tip to make them grow!
NOURISH • What are your staples for beauty + wellness + radiance?
Green apple cut up with cinnamon and sea salt dipped in pumpkin seed butter is my favorite snack // breakfast ever. I also love me a green smoothie or Acai bowl. Avocado toast might be one of the best combinations ever created by man. Then again, avocado on anything is amazing. Basically, I genuinely enjoy healthy foods but I'm not crazy about food anymore and try to be kind and gentle with myself regardless of what I eat because I know now that how you feel about what you eat matters more than what you're eating.
BODY • How do you keep your body healthy, strong, and powerful?
Yoga and walking are my favorite ways to move. I love long walks with podcasts or music in my ears or better yet, talking with a friend. I love yoga so much. All types - I don't discriminate. When I'm really stressed though, a long massage is the best thing for my body. I love thai yoga massage and think all yogis should try it.
MIND • How do you stay grounded, confident, and centered in this modern day craziness we call life?
I love coloring mandalas, talking to my coaches, soul tribe friends, and staying inspired with inspired entertainment--that keeps me sane. Meditation resets my brain in a way nothing else really can. As far as being confident and staying centered, just focusing my energy to my feet helps to get me into the present moment when my mind starts to wander out.
SPIRIT • BENSHEN means 'root of the spirit' - how do you root your spirit into your life, which in turn, keeps your body beautiful, healthy, and radiant?
Journaling is my main spiritual practice for keeping me together. I don't know what I'm thinking or how I'm feeling really unless I'm writing. Journaling allows me to actually figure out where I am and compare that with where I want to be and map out the difference.
