What does it mean to be holistic, and to live holistically? 

By dictionary definition, the term holistic is “characterized by the treatment of the whole person." The importance of implementing holistic practices into each area of your life is clear. Choosing to participate in practices that allow your body, mind, and soul to feel nourished allows you to find wellness from the inside out. 

Summer can often be a difficult time to put your health first. With pressure to consume extra  alcohol at parties, with fake food chemicals and distressing ingredients. We are here to help you to brainstorm ideas to take your summer nights from draining to fulfilling.

Wine can be enjoyed in healthy quantities as it provides us with antioxidant. *BeachCandy Tip: Oftentimes vineyards offer non-alcoholic options. Don’t be afraid to ask for an alcohol free wine or mocktail

  • Book a Pottery Class - never worked with clay or pottery before? No problem! Most pottery studios welcome beginners with open arms. This is an excellent option if you want to recharge by yourself, or you can bring a friend!

  • Spend Time with Pets - This is an excellent way to bond with your animals, while also making their day. Most pets enjoy walks, fetch, or a classic back or belly rub. 

  • Attend a Community Paint and Sip - Bonding with community members and neighbors is fulfilling to the soul. Grab your favorite beverage and paint a picture, mug, or anything you desire! 

  • Get Strong at Laser Tag - create the perfect combination of friendly competition and stress free energy to enjoy a carefree night of laser tag.
  • If some of these ideas caught your eye, do not allow your fear of change to stop you. Feeding your mind, body, and soul with memories and time well spent is priceless. 

    Learning How To Say “No” To Events that You Do Not Feel Will Fulfill You

    We’ve all been there... The dreaded, “I would rather not attend but I don’t want to let her/him down." It can be very difficult to say no in social situations, as we have learned from a young age. Learning how to prioritize your time to allow wellness and health to be a part of your life is crucial for your wellbeing.

    Oftentimes, when declining an offer, suggesting another one can be beneficial and help lessen the tension. 

    For example, your friend invites you to the bar, but you are not comfortable drinking right now. You say, “Hey! Thank you so much for the invite! I am so excited to spend time with you. Bars aren't really my scene right now, but I was thinking we could try (insert one of the hangout items above) instead." 

    This is often received very well. It is also important to surround yourself with people who respect and support your boundaries. If someone responds poorly and says they are no longer interested, let them go, as they were not supporting your best self. 

    The Value of Investing in a Holistic Lifestyle 

    Often, we attribute our bodies feeling better to modern day medicine, when there is a lot more behind it. Holistic living allows us to fulfill our mind, body, and soul through delicious and non-inflammatory foods, wholesome friends, unforgettable memories, and a healthy mind.

The beauty of living an all natural lifestyle is radiant, from your clothes to your energy, it cannot be missed.
