Golden Milk

February 26th, 2018 | no comments

I’ve lost track of the number of people over the years who’ve shared just how little time they take for themselves. In fact, most take ZERO! Some wear it proudly like a badge of honor, while others are quite embarrassed. They tell me how many hours they work each week and the number of activities their children are involved in. One woman I spoke to the other day works two jobs and over 70 hours a week to make ends meet!

But when I ask about them— specifically “how do you take care of YOU?”— all I get is a blank stare, followed by a: “Time for me? Yeah right!”

If this sounds like you, I understand your reality might not change (i.e. you still have bills to pay and your children still need you), but you can choose to carve out a little time just for YOU.

That’s where Golden Milk comes in. This soothing tonic is filled with anti-inflammatory compounds found in fresh turmeric and ginger, with a hint of cinnamon and pepper. Remember, pepper serves to increase the absorption of curcumin, which is the main active ingredient in turmeric.

Set aside 10-15 minutes in the evening, pour yourself a cup of Golden Milk (treat it like a special occasion by using a special mug or tea cup), put your feet up and bask in the wonder of the present moment while you sip on this beautiful, healing orange beverage.

As you wind down from a hectic day, you deserve to do a little something good for your body. Don’t you think?

Remember, If you don’t make the time, you’ll never take the time.
