Sarita's blog focuses on connecting with yourself on a deeper level through mindset, self-care and healthy habits.
This week commences the major Holiday Season. This is a great opportunity for you to strengthen your boundary-building muscles and learn to protect your personal energy.
Personally, as a Latina who is not only a recovering people pleaser and not living an authentic live, learning to set boundaries within my life has been one of the hardest lessons I’ve had to learn. At the same time, it’s been the driving force behind changing my life and creating happiness without all of the guilt, and believe me that’s SO liberating!
When we focus on setting healthy boundaries during the holiday season, we are giving ourselves a chance to realign with the true meaning of the season. We can focus on spending quality time – as much as you wish – with Familia and friends and remember the power of gratitude in EVERY moment!
What are healthy boundaries?
In general, healthy external boundaries are physical, emotional,...
I know what it feels like to be on adrenal overload to the point you end up having ongoing anxiety attacks due to the inability to sleep. Let me break what I learned about adrenals a few years back and why it's vitally important to take care of ourselves with self care so we don't get to to this point.
The “fight or flight” syndrome – you’ve heard of it, right? Accompanied with the image of the saber-toothed tiger dashing after a hunter, getting ready to attack. You often get into this situation, don’t you? In modern times, we’re not literally in that frantic position, but our bodies are often reacting as if we were fighting for our lives. Our adrenal glands, located on top of each kidney, are forced to work overtime in an effort to deal with stress from all sources: injury, disease, work, family, finances, environment, etc.
It’s hard to imagine these small endocrine glands, essentially the size of a walnut, responsible for the...
I am one of those people who wasn't too phased out when the announcement of covid hit the states. Even going into quarantine I was doing fine and kept a positive outlook. With the ever changing climate outside it was pretty inevitable it would take a tole on all of us.
There are people that are thriving in quarantine, being able to relax and take time to recoup. And there are those of us that need a little extra boost of help when it comes to self care and stress reduction.
I took a little time to create this recourse for you that has helped me in the past during chaos times and hopefully will help you now as you continue life cooped up.

Self- care is having a voice
Let me explain
Self-care is more than just pedicures and massages. It is giving your self the space for emotional, physical and spiritual growth
Your voice, my voice, our voice is the most powerful tool we have as women
By having a voice we are able to set boundaries, be able to say no when we need to, have better relationships, have better businesses and better community members.
When we don't have a voice we are deleted and unworn, tired and allowing people to walk all over us. We people please and don't permit ourselves to invest in our own personal self development
When we ignite our voices through the power of self-care we can consciously create the lifestyle of our dreams.
