Bok Choy Green Juice

Last week I took a three-day trip to San Diego.  It wasn’t supposed to be a vacation per se, but it ended up being an amazing wake-up call.  This trip was the first time in over six months where I had three consecutive days where I wasn’t working, working on my business, or blogging.   It’s amazing to me how badly I needed a break and didn’t even know it.

I pride myself on taking care of myself and being “healthy,” but as I have been focusing more and more attention on building my business, on top of working my full-time job, my focus on myself has slipped away.  I knew it was a problem that I wasn’t sleeping through the night anymore and was waking up with headaches in the morning.  I knew it was a big problem that I was working a full day at work and then coming home to work five more hours on my side business. I knew it was a problem that I felt overwhelmingly scattered, exhausted, anxious, and irritable, but I just thought this is how life was right now.

Not anymore.  Something had to change and it’s changing now.  As a result of this trip and having some time to get perspective on my life, I have already made huge shifts to my priorities and have noticed a dramatic change in my mood, energy, and overall well-being.  If anyone asked me a week ago, of course I could tell you about the benefits of taking a break, whether it’s a ten-minute break or a ten-day break.  But sometimes we forget to apply our own wisdom to ourselves… guilty.

So here is where I pose this question to you:  Are there things that aren’t working in your life at the moment that need your attention?  When was the last time you took a real break – big or small?

And, when was the last time you enjoyed a green juice?

This juice is simple.  Uber simple.  It’s got a slightly tart-sweet-bitter goodness that tastes clean and refreshing.  It is best enjoyed upon returning home from a flight when you have the need to feel hydrated, grounded, and centered.  Or, while lying on your couch indulging in a Prison Break marathon… guilty.
