Tonightโ€™s new moon Libra is all about relationships, commitment, and balance. Represented as the โ€œkeeper of the scalesโ€, new moon Libra may force you to find balance in areas of your life that have been taking up too much of your time or energy. Now is a good time to reflect on the past couple weeks and ask yourself if you are happy with where you are investing your time and energy. If you feel out of balance, you may find Libraโ€™s energy to be rather abrasive, as it may force you into making hard decisions or finally finish that project you have been procrastinating on. Pay attention to how you feel this week. Are you anxious? Feeling chaotic or that thereโ€™s not enough time in the day to tackle your to-do list? Work to ground your energy with yoga + meditation and you should sail through Libra season just fine. ๐ŸŒ™โœจ| photo by: @melanieruthphoto

NEW MOON GOALS as inspired by @thebalancedblonde โœจ
๐ŸŒ’Stay consistent with my meditation practice. Girl, I know you are busy but you totally have 3 minutes. No excuses. ๐ŸŒ’Eat more plant based meals. Bc greens. ๐ŸŒ’Be present in each moment. ๐ŸŒ’Continue with my gratitude journal. ๐ŸŒ’Practice asana 3x/week. The new moon is a great time to slow down and reflect on where you are now in your life. Are you happy with the path you are on? How are you spending your time? Does it bring you joy? Tune into yourself this week, set intentions and create new routines. Take advantage of new moon Virgo and turn inward. What are your new moon goals?

Have you ever made your own nut milk? If you havenโ€™t I bet you didnโ€™t know how super easy it is! Plus you avoid all the weird additives hiding in the cartoned brands like carrageenan and soy lecithin. Eek! ๐Ÿ˜ง Research shows overtime carrageenan can cause major GI issues and has been linked to a higher rate of colon cancer, IBS, and IBD! Soy has been a hot topic in the health and wellness realm for years and while it is ultimately your choice, you should know there is significant evidence it has harmful affects on the body. I personally avoid soy. Do your own research on this one and let me know where you stand! ๐Ÿค“

DIY CASHEW MILK
1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight in water
4 cups filtered water
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 date, pitted and chopped (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Soak cashews in water overnight. Rinse and transfer to high speed blender. Add water, date and vanilla extract if desired. Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. Strain through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag for silky smooth milk but I usually skip this step with cashews! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ

HOW TO OVERCOME SELF-DOUBT:
1. No one will ever criticize you the way you criticize yourself. Be nice.
2. Stop comparing yourself โ€” no one is you and that is your gift! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ
3. You donโ€™t need validation from anyone. Itโ€™s ok. ๐Ÿค—
4. Remember how far youโ€™ve come.
5. Take care of yourself. Meditate, go for a walk, take a bath, exfoliate, eat your greens. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ
6. Tighten your circle โ€” surround yourself with positive, uplifting people who truly care about you. ๐Ÿ‘ฏ
7. Fake it till you make it. Trust. No one knows wtf they are doing anyways!
8. Repeat after me: You are strong. You are smart. You are beautiful. You are enough! โœจโœจ

VISUALIZATION โœจ๐Ÿ”ฎ a powerful tool to amp up your meditation practice. ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ญ Concentrate the mind on an image or place so your body can chill the F out. Really! Start by sitting in a comfortable position. Inhale, fill up with breath. Exhale and let it all go. Think of a beautiful place and go there. Inhale. Notice your belly and mind expand with potential. Exhale. Let it all go. Donโ€™t overthink it! Just sit, close your eyes, and breathe. โœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐Ÿป

Did we just become best friends?! ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿ‘ฏ Hi, 2k new friends! Letโ€™s get to know each other! Where are you from? What inspires you? What makes you happy? Tell me about yourself! Iโ€™m from CT, totally inspired by food and movement as medicine, and good food and coffee (among other things) make me happy. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ In the spirit of new friends, here are 5 things you probably donโ€™t know about me:
1. I started blogging a little over a year ago on megbeans.com as a fun and creative outlet for me to express myself. ๐Ÿ’ญ๐ŸŒˆ
2. Iโ€™m a SICU nurse! Itโ€™s what pays the bills while Iโ€™m in school to become a functional FNP.
3. I am engaged to my BFF and together we have a fur child, Remi, also known as Eski, Fur, and Boo Boo. ๐Ÿ•
4. I love love love to cook. It makes me happy. I also love being cooked for just as much if not more.
5. Iโ€™m in YTT! Yoga is my thing. #๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #namaste
