The world may still be closed, but Spring obeys only the unwavering call of the sun rising in the sky, each day moving closer to its peak.
We may be in quarantine, and yet our hearts are stretching, expanding, reaching for the light and urging us to grow, to grow, to grow.
"Sometimes when you're in a dark place, you tend to think you've been buried. Perhaps you've been planted. Bloom." ~ Christine Caine
It seems as though we've all been buried under a wave of information, fear, loss, and perhaps some much needed isolation. If there is darkness, perhaps it is the many layers, years of unresolved emotions we had been avoiding in the business of our habitual busy-ness. Perhaps it is in this stillness that we are composting, transforming, sprouting, and pushing our way through the dense soil of our unconsciousness to...
Sorry, you can't buy this in a cereal box...
The first thing to do for the adrenals in the morning actually happens before you wake up. It's a very special technique called going to bed early...like before 10pm. If you don't, there's no breakfast in the world that will make up for that lost and precious slumber, that can only be replenished while horizontal.
Still, whether you have been sleeping well or not, what you eat or do not eat in the morning sets the stage for the rest of the day, especially with regards to blood sugar.

Here’s the old way of thinking: 1 hour equals x number of dollars, multiply by 40, multiply by 4, subtract expenses, and you’ve got your worth, in a simple number. If you happen to have a big number, you might feel good, and if you have a smaller number, well, you probably feel a little less wonderful than you’d like.
But this simple and admittedly oversimplified equation has forgotten something entirely. Something that is essential to the understanding of that perceived value that we place on money and “net worth” and such measures. It has overlooked the cost to the individual who is working that hour, giving that % of their life force and energy to earn a $, and whether or not the energy put in is reciprocated. So you may only put in 1 hr on a particular project, but that 1 hour might cost you 2 hours of anguish, planning, worrying, hurrying, and stressing...
It’s full of energizing adaptogens—namely maca and rhodiola—and packed with seriously immune-boosting roots, including astragalus, licorice, ginger, and red root. It’s high in antioxidants thanks to goji and rooibos, and turmeric gives it inflammation-fighting properties And, of course, it’s got the typical PSL flavorings—cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, vanilla, and mesquite—which all add up to give you a pretty close approximation of the OG seasonal sensation.
