5 Ways to Deal With The Death/ Loss Of A Loved One

 

Recognize it is ok to cry

Allow yourself to feel your emotions. Cry, scream, sing, run, walk, workout, or do whatever will allow you to exert all the emotional energy you are harboring. Just let it out! Your emotions are valid so do not try to suppress how you are feeling, as long as it does not involve anything illegal or anything that causes harm to others.

Reminisce about the good times

Although your loved one is no longer physically here on this earth with you, your memory of them and how they made you feel will remain with you forever. Remind yourself of all those great memories you shared with that person. Know that they will always be with you in spirit, watching over you.

You Drink What? Non-Dairy Milk Alternatives

20170224_172139

My co-worker is trying to live a healthier lifestyle and so naturally he asks me (the girl who almost always has a salad at work for lunch) about non-dairy milk alternatives.  I advised him to keep an open mind since people often think vegan/ vegetarian substitutes will taste like the “real thing.”

Please note vegan/ vegetarian substitutes are not the same thing so they cannot possibly taste the same.  They may have a similar quality such as a texture, or similar notes but often times they will not taste exactly the same.

I did however advise him to try almond milk since he mentioned he did not like the taste of coconut milk in his cereal.  From my experience almond milk has a subtle taste compared to other non-dairy milk alternatives such as coconut milk and hemp milk.

An Intro to My Blog

20170228_011803

Well hello there beautiful! Welcome, welcome to my blog Yes, Her, Esther J. Some people would call me a jack all trades I have an office job, part time retail position, and a seasonal part time job. I am also a certified zumba instructor, certified wedding planner, I also plan non-wedding events, sing, and choreograph. I am very excited to now add that I am officially a blogger!!!!

Here is a little background on how it all started:

People who know me, often come to me for advice about health, fitness, or to provide them with creative ideas for their events. A few of my friends and family members have told me in the past on several different occasions that I am knowledgeable enough to start a blog but I was not interested in that idea at the time and would simply brush it off.

I then played around with this blog idea in my head last month for a few weeks and I could not dismiss it. The universe was giving me signs left and right pointing me into this direction. So I thought why am I fighting this? And of course the negative thoughts began to surface. Then one day I decided why not me! So here I am beautiful people ready to open up and try something new in this world hoping to make new friends along the way.

Here we will be discussing fitness, health, music, creativity, and all things lifestyle according to moi. I hope you will join me on this journey to becoming the best version of me I can be and I can only hope I inspire you to become the best version of you, you can be.

Peace & Love,

Esther J
