What’s the point?
What’s the point of all this focus on wellness? I used to think it was for more happiness and success, but I’ve come to find that even extreme happiness can cause suffering. Huge highs come with huge lows.
The further I walk on my path to healing, the more I find that it’s all about getting off the roller coaster ride – the ups and downs of life. There is a stable, consistent, inner peace that is accessible to all of us. That’s really what you want right? Simple, inner peace.
However, finding that peace while living on planet earth is a challenge. There are so many things, every day, that tempt me from peace into uneasiness, stress, resentment, etc.
So, I choose to surround myself with tools- nutrition, yoga practice, quiet time with myself, etc. And recently, I made the most delicious tool to guide me back to the feeling of inner peace.
I’ve called this creation Elissa’s Inner Peace Tonic, and the recipe is below. You can purchase all the ingredients at most health stores – if not, the internet will do!
Get yourself off of life’s roller coaster, calm your mind, be with the inner peace that is waiting for you. It never went anywhere.
Elissa’s Inner Peace Tonic
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or nut milk of your choice)
1 tablespoon of Reishi Cacao powder, I love Navitas
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
4-5 drops of pure vanilla stevia to taste, Omica is my favorite
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk all ingredients together to heat through. Serve nice and warm in a mug!
