Starting my day by setting my intentions, journalling, and mediating. Ive just recently started incorporating mediation into my daily routine, and it really is such a helpful and incredible practice to explore. There are many different forums of mediation, and you can always adjust your practice to whatever feels best for YOU. Even just taking a couple minutes to set good intentions and think about all the things you're grateful for is extremely beneficial and such a positive way to start your day.
I usually do yoga, but today I only had time for a quick gym workout! Anything to get my body moving and sweat it all out in the morning always feels so good.
First stop. Acupuncture and Cupping Therapy with Dr. Kara Aculand (She is by far the best in LA). I will link her website here so you can view all the health benefits but to name a few: pain relief, digestive disorders, muscle recovery, respiratory issues, women's health, mental disorders (anxiety, depression, and more), energy levels, and SO many more. Dr. Kara is very knowledgeable and trustworthy and will help you to improve your health in a way thats best for YOU.
Here is the link to her website for more information: https://www.drkaraaculand.com/new-page-5/
She also has the cutest cupping supplies that are in the shape of HEARTS.
After acupuncture in beverly hills it was time for COFFEE (my favorite part of the day)
I met my best friend at Blue Bottle in West Hollywood for an oat milk latte (a new love of mine) and some soul sister talk. Every time I leave a coffee date with her, I feel so firkin good. Very important to find those friends in your life.
(side note: fav lattes in la right now are...... groundworks cashew milk latte, erewhon coconut milk latte, rawberri lavender latte, paramount coffee project almond milk latte)
After Blue bottle it was time for LUNCH.
Headed west to Santa Monica for a meeting at one of my favorite places... FLOWER CHILD.
It is right near the water, such a great location, and AMAZING food. Its sometimes tough to find healthy places to eat that have options for everyone's dietary needs. This place is perfect for anyone. Its flavorful, and theres so many vegan options. I got the veggie bowl. YUM.
I then just ran some errands and went to reformation, urban outfitters, and a couple of my favorite thrift stores in the city.
What a perfect morning and afternoon in this place I'm lucky to call home.
