After the year we’ve been through - the stress, the fear, the loss, nothing is the same. And the need for an overall sense of well-being, for me, is greater than ever. The connection to our farms, our food and the appreciation of our farmers, as they are indeed our unsung heroes and the ’stars’ of our time, is still as important as ever. And with the shock we felt seeing empty grocery store shelves and seeing how difficult the distribution chain issues our farmers faced this year was, our appreciation for what they do is greater than ever. Their role in our lives is definitely not taken for granted.
In the new Farm Star Living, we will continue to showcase food and farms, and the farmers aka Farm Stars™ who make this possible, but we also explore and discuss ways we can have complete health and overall wellness - of the mind, body and spirit.
- Mind - We’ll discuss tips, techniques and ways that you can become more mindful, more aware of how and what you’re thinking, and start to see how that affects your overall well-being. We’ll be looking at ways to declutter your mind, great ways to de-stress, tips to stay positive, to relax and restore. We’ll explore wonderful ways to stay positive and Find Your Zen, to see the beauty in the day, and in life that is unfolding around us. Plus - incorporating wonderful farm-fresh foods and products to help you relax, restore and feel at peace.
- Body - We’ll look at ways to nurture your body and skin. We love sharing ways to feed your body with farm-fresh foods, healthy recipes and snacks that give you great energy, and we’ll also look at fun ways to keep your body active in order to feel and operate at your best. Plus, while taking care of your body and skin, this also includes your face. So there are amazing ways to help your skin stay healthy, fresh, and I must admit there’s going to be a side bonus where you will feel your most beautiful yet. (And probably look it, too!) So, we’ll be incorporating Spa & Beauty tips and farm-sourced, natural beauty products into this, too, because who couldn’t also use a little pampering and TLC!
- Spirit - This is subjective, but I’m referring to that inner voice within that tells you when you’ve gone astray, when you need to make a change, or when something doesn’t feel right. And that voice - that higher self, is directly connected to something that is all-knowing, even greater than yourself. Some people call it the universe, God, supreme consciousness, and however you might may refer to that inner voice within, it helps guide us all, and centers us. We’ll look at techniques and tips to connect to your inner and higher self so that you’ll be able to achieve peace, greater alignment, and be able to tap into the best, most heightened version of yourself.
