New Video: Healthy Mindset and Music

Posted on by Jessica Remmers in Health, News | Leave a comment

I talk a lot about food and nutrition, but the most important thing to our health is a positive mindset and how we deal with hard times. Someone can seem perfectly “healthy” on the outside, taking good care of themselves, eating healthy and working out, but if we don’t spend even more time on maintaining a positive and grateful mind, dis-ease can creep in. Art and music is one way we deal with a hard situation to connect to the beauty and humanity we all share. I found a “perfect” song a few weeks ago that really helped me and I share the story in my latest video. I want to know which songs/movies/art helps you??

Celebration Day Getaway in Ventura (and Mary’s Secret Garden)

Posted on by Jessica Remmers in Health, News, Travel | Leave a comment

We hear about it all the time…

…the importance of getting out of the grind, your daily routine, the stress of city life and getting into nature, or even just getting out of town. It’s like something lifts off your body and you feel a release and peace. One spot to do just that is just outside of Los Angeles, it’s a quaint beach town without a lot of tourists and truly feels like a mini vacation as soon as you step foot inside of Ventura! My fiancé and I were celebrating our one year anniversary and decided this would be the perfect place to spend the day…

We started off the day doing some earthing at the beach.

Earthing: The Process of absorbing earths free flowing elections from it’s surface throughout the soles of ones feet.

Earthing in Ventura

Earthing in Ventura

There was NO ONE on the beach!! It was awesome, and felt amazing physically, mentally and spiritually. I truly feel like nature is the perfect place to release and surrender everything to God, to give up all your plans and let off your load. In that place, you often feel a realignment with your purpose, encouragement on your journey and an answer to prayers or questions that may have been lingering. It is healing in so many ways and part of living a healthy happy life! There is also a healthy dose of vitamin D happening here…

Next we took a lovely walk along the Ventura Pier. The weather was perfect.
