My family and I just returned from our vacation to the Gaspe Peninsula and due to internet connectivity issues, I was unable to write a blog post last week :(
We go every summer, but both my husband and myself found it really hard to leave there this time. I think it's because we were both really just starting to relax and unwind, and leaving when we did seemed like we were cutting off the relaxation process too quickly.
Does it take you awhile to get in the groove of relaxing too? It takes me a few days just to start unwinding and allowing my mind to quiet down from the hustle and bustle of being an entrepreneur and running my own business.
You see, I've only been an entrepreneur for one and a half years, so I'm still learning (sometimes the hard way!) how important it is to take the time to temporarily shut off the many thoughts and ideas that are constantly running through my head at any given moment.
But I was finally able to do that - around day 4. Next vacation, I'm aiming for day 2 :)
While I was strolling the beach (one of my absolute favourite things to do in the whole world) on our last day I filmed a little video with my "aha" moments from this trip.
You can check out the video HERE.
Also, I recently had the pleasure of being asked to contribute to this month's edition of Durham Region's "East of the City" magazine. In this issues, we're talking Keto & Paleo diets, along with the benefits and challenges of each.
Check it out HERE in the Health Section on pg 36.
Before I go, I want to leave with another variation of Energy Bites (these are perfect for making double or triple batches of and storing in the freezer for whenever you need them!)
Hemp Heart Energy Bites
25 whole pitted dates
½ cup unsweetened, raw nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower seed, etc)
2 TB coconut oil
1 cup hemp hearts
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
½ cup dark chocolate chips (50% cacao or higher)
Until next time,
May Anne xo
