Jody Watley. Meatless Monday Wattage and Wellness.

Stretch to retain flexibility..it’s also a good metaphor for living life.

Try to go without meat each Monday if you’re not already vegetarian or vegan. It’s good for you physically as well as helps you do a small part to help the environment. There are so many healthy options vegetables (I love roasted brussel  sprouts, with garlic, prepared with olive oil, your herb of choice, black pepper, a splash of lemon juice and for extra kick I use a few red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper..you can also add sweet potatoes or any of your choice), there are many kale dishes or if you like southern cuisine sauteed collards are good and full of nutrients. Look into bean dishes and soups, quinoa and so on. I’m always surprised as well when people say they don’t like water..add lemon, cucumber, lime etc..but water is also good for you and helps flush those kidneys.

As we head into 2020, I’m very much more focused wellness and putting others in that frame of mind. Through the years, I’ve always spoken about this in one way or another..released a best selling fitness video in the 90’s and fast forward to my single ‘Sanctuary’ all about creating personal spaces to promote peace and joy – too many walking around carrying stress. This is a way I’ll be using more of my social platform for – especially this blog.

This specially curated playlist will get you moving..even if you’re simply in your kitchen prepping that healthy dish. Wattage!

Monday Wattage Inspiration. Love Yourself.

Wise inspirational words from Steve Maraboli that I thought I’d share.

Monday Wattage. A Thousand Candles.

It’s ok to wish other people well. Should paths move in different directions to grow, get better, not be stagnant or simply evolve in new directions – it takes nothing away from any experiences and opportunities life gives us – trying to diminish others is pointless 🕯 we all have our own journeys and lives to live and wishing others well is good for the spirit

Monday Wattage. Make Each Day Special.

A casual day at home, doing a bit of work over the weekend. Though not going out, I perked myself up with just a touch of glam. As my Dad used to say you don’t need to wait for a special occasion to dress up, enjoy your nice things, a special meal or to be charitable, giving and kind.

Wise words – each day of life is special!

Monday Wattage. Patience With Yourself.

Had to share this one for those who view life as being a constant process of growth, self-improvement as well as the setting of new goals.

Every day is a new day to change something about your life if your unhappy or dissatisfied with something. What are you waiting for?! You’re not a tree, even with it’s beauty and all of it’s branches..a tree still sheds leaves along the way for new ones.
