Loving Lately: The Now Massage by Alexandra Pullen

Anyone else have the tendency to run themselves into the ground with work? I share balance and self-care routines on my Instagram here as much as possible, but the truth is that i really need to S L O W it down sometimes myself...I work so hard until I literally can’t move and make myself sick, and it’s happened way too many times! I’m either on the move traveling, driving my car all over the city when I’m in LA, and working non stop while trying to keep a semblance of a social life. I’m so beyond grateful for all of the opportunities coming my way, but it’s important to take care of yourself too! Integrating regular self-care rituals such as bubble baths and The Now Massage helps keep me in check. Also this crystal mirror is fire—couldn’t NOT selfie here.

Why I Don't Count Calories by Alexandra Pullen

I don’t count calories. This is mainly because I’m lazy, but it’s also because I don’t see the point. Your body doesn’t understand an arbitrary numerical value that you select as an acceptable amount to feed your body, nor is there a magic number that is going to make your body say, “I don’t need these five extra pounds.” There was a period of time in which I was really strict and aware of how many calories I was putting in my body, but I was also CRAZY during that time. Since then, I've also become a lot more in tune with my body. Once you can learn how to eat intuitively, you will be able to gauge exactly how much you need and when you have truly had enough. This is the same reason why I don't weigh myself. I want to go off how I feel, not by a number. It's a very evolved way of thinking and being in a calorie/media-obsessed culture that we live in, but I promise that you will be so much happier without the scales and numbers!
