overcoming negative self talk, pack with me as I unpack my feelings

overcoming negative self talk, pack with me as I unpack my feelings

IG: https://www.instagram.com/rowenatsai | Unpacking my outpouring of emotions as I pack for a weekend beach trip to the tropics including a little try-on haul, and current skincare & makeup faves. 🏝 As I shared on IG recently, this season in my life is really about balance. Between running and slowing down, consuming and creating, solitude and social butterfly-ing.

Anyway, I’m grateful for all your words of encouragement in last week’s vlog. ❀️ As I was editing this video, putting together a video I’ve never made before, transported me back to 2018 where Youtube seemed limitless and every video I made was a splendid adventure. :’)

I hope, at the very least, you feel a little lighter after watching this as I did while I was editing. For as deep and meaningful as I wanted my life to be, I’ve realized looking back that that desire at times hindered me from being fully present and enjoying the little in-between moments in life.

Sending my love always πŸ₯”

5 Helpful Tips to Detox From Sugar

The not-so-sweet truth is that the massive intake of sugar in this country is one of the main factors of chronic disease. Just like drug addiction, sugar causes a food addiction in some people, making it very difficult to stop. Addictive drugs cause neurochemical changes in the brain, such as changes in dopamine and opioid receptor binding, which reinforce addictive behaviors.
