Last month during the meet n greet portion of my Let’s Talk Mom2Mom Beauty Conference NYC, a mom asked me what advice can I give her to not feel guilty about doing things for herself that don’t involve her children. She admired how I could work from home and travel without my kids and while she has a home office, she often feels guilty when she goes in and closes the door because her kids are often knocking outside.
Brown rice and kidney beans is a delicious healthy and satisfying meal. I usually have 2 cups of brown rice ( I make it in my rice cooker) with 1 cup kidney beans (recipe). This gives me 23g of protein at a little over 600 calories (if you count😊). People don’t realize that protein is found in so many foods not just meat. And now that I’m vegan, I eat all the rice I want!

I’m not sure what your hurdles are but during my life I’ve struggled with over eating, lack of motivation, and sticking to my workouts. In the last 2 years I’ve found balance-not perfection, but balance. I’ve managed to enjoy healthy delicious food AND unhealthy delicious food. I’ve not worked out in a while, but when I do I make it count. My vegan lifestyle has naturally balanced my weight and improved my overall health. Ultimately I’m a better me. And I’m happy I’ve finally figured it out. If you need daily motivation follow me on Instagram @healthyJenell
The spirit moved me to read an excerpt from my Emotional Wholeness book. The scripture is from 1 John 4:10-11 and it talks about showing love to the people around me. This led me to discuss in this video how I deal with negativity on social media.
I’ve had some negative comments or just mean/rude tone comments, but this doesn’t happen very often. I treat everyone with love and thus I receive this love back. Of course sometimes I have to use the block and delete buttons, but this is rare in the scope of how many thousands of comments I get on a weekly basis.
How do you deal with negativity on social media?
