Health and Wellness Thanks to Plexus

It was definitely worth the try, and I hope you can say the same

I've been waiting for something to come along that would give me the energy and motivation to get back into a daily healthy routine. I was down on my luck for so long, and I was about to give up, but then I saw one of my Facebook friends post about this thing called Plexus. I have heard of it before, but I was not interested at first since it reminded me of something I had tried to do before that was similar to another company: ItWorks. I did not want to try Plexus when I heard about it the FIRST time because ItWorks did not work at all for me. However, I figured that since I was seeing it AGAIN that it was some kind of sign. So, I asked more about it. And thus, my journey began!

Everyone who knows me knows that I've been a slave to coffee pretty much my entire life. The know about my love for chocolate, too.When I was younger I ate a bunch of junk food. That's all that was ever available in the house. Health was never really discussed or practiced in our home and I never really cared....until I got into high school. Here is what my life was like before Plexus:

4-6 cups of coffee everyday. A can of Coke Zero whenever I could get my hands on it. Chinese take-out once every two to four weeks, and spending money on what I defined as healthy snacks where I work EVERY time I had a shift (roughly 4 days a week).

When I moved in with my aunt and uncle I started to crack down more on my health. I started going to the gym everyday and eating better. I lost 17 pounds in less than a year!But I still wasn't doing as well as I potentially could, and I never reached my weight/health goals. And when I moved out on my own I had stopped working out because of time management.

I started college, began taking care of my brother, and started to work more (via my current on-site job, + work study AND an online writing job) I thought I would never get back into routine, but then I stumbled upon Plexus.

Today: I am finally back into routine. I have so much more energy, I sleep AWESOME, I no longer crave daily morning coffee or Coke Zero, I stay away from sugary snacks and foods, and I stay full after meals. I don't eat nearly as much as I used to, I have been losing a few needed pounds (and keeping them off)! And overall I just feel so much better.

My body thanks me, my wallet thanks me, and I thank Plexus!

Plexus is a health and wellness company that offers natural, plant-based supplements helping with a range of issues: overall health, weight management, digestive health, pain relief, and more. Originally, Plexus was created for diabetic individuals balance their blood sugar levels, but eventually graduated to helping everyone with all kinds of health issues.

The number one product in the business is Plexus Slim or the "pink drink": a berry flavored drink you mix with water that balances blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and lipids (lipids make up fat). It is a natural way to balance your whole body.

When your body is balanced, it burns the right kind of energy (stored fat), and you naturally become more energetic since your body isn't being depleted of the energy you need; you sleep better, and wake up more refreshed! It also helps individuals to make better food choices and detoxes your body so you have healthy bacteria, and lose weight if you need to! The other products are capsules that work together to help with digestive, pain, and overall health. Some capsules work together with Slim to increase results even better and faster.

I have become a better version of myself since starting Plexus, and I am so happy about it. I am so excited to be apart of this business. I want to help others achieve their health goals as well as mine, so I invite all of the readers of this article to ask me any questions they have, and to come forward if you have any health or financial goals (big or small)! that you want to tackle. If you believe in miracles and/or signs, this is your sign. Come get it!

My philosophy: to be truly happy on the outside, you have to be happy on the inside.

Stores may still be closed, but the internet is still wide open. So, while you're already shopping online check out Etsy for your Father's Day needs and support small creators.

As June approaches, Father's Day is coming up quickly with it. While they may not ask for much, it's always a nice gesture to give your dad something special to share your appreciation. Although, at the same time, it might be difficult to find the perfect gift either for their humor or that will be practical.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

The current state of the world has created the perfect storm for change in America. But with change there is always risk. Although protests have sprung up all across America, COVID-19 is still a very real risk. Luckily, you can help bring about change from the comfort of your own home. And no, I don't mean just by posting a black square on social media.

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
