    EP- 154- True Wellness VS Consumerism: Which are you practicing?

    EP- 154- True Wellness VS Consumerism: Which are you practicing?

    Wellness Secrets vs Consumerism- Too often we intertwine and confuse the two -- one should be free and available to us at all times and the other should be completely separate as a shopping experience- for companies focused on profit should remain a consumer facing for profit business. There's nothing wrong with a for profit company - I would say it is important to know the difference and know wellness is a free and available practice to all. Here are some of my fave free ways to well & sites I love - written by each individual posted below. A free meditation is avail at the end of this podcast. xx thank you for listening xxCandice

    being in nature

    feet in ground

    eating healthy and well - fruits, veggies and unprocessed foods

    meditation for peace and calm - keep yourself immune to the haters//meanie people

    give yourself a mani pedi in the bath! - do a bubble bath

    make a face mask at home with papaya, yogurt, honey or matcha!

    fostering a pet at home, serving others who cannot help you is the best

    plant a garden at home, in the backyard and or get new plants/flowers

As REAL as it gets ♥️

Candice on Wabi Sabi is raw, real, heartfelt, and as good as it gets when it comes to sharing unfiltered experiences and life stories to lift you up and get you out to live your best life. This podcast (and her book, Kintsugi Wellness) has been so life-giving and I have honestly learned so much from self-care to entrepreneurial/business savviness to handling heartbreaks and friendships. Can’t imagine going through the past few years of my 20s without her words of wisdom!

One of THE BEST!

Candice is one of the few podcasters who resonate with me.
I love her sincerity, humility, and humanity when she speaks. I feel like her messages are addressed to me personally, which makes me constantly remember how similar human beings are. Sometimes we just complicate ourselves too much!
Candice even reminds me to give myself a couple of seconds to breathe and reset!
Thank you 🤍 (hand on my heart 😉).
