EPISODE #10 // Want to know what we secretly love?

Because you can't do everything perfect all the time, here are our guilty pleasures. | Nourish + Flourish

Today, we’re talking about guilty pleasures.

You know, the things that we indulge in that may or may not raise an eyebrow from our friends and family. Or, worse still, be deemed UNhealthy.

Why are we talking about this? Because we believe there needs to be some built-in wiggle room for indulgences to reward ourselves in order to remain sane in a life that is centered around health and wellness. Whether it’s a guilty pleasure in the form of a television show, a snack, or merely an act of creativity, they are sources of comfort that we all can turn to when we need to relax.

And while they may not be healthy when consumed in large quantities (ahem french fries, chocolate, and wine slushies), they are the stuff balanced lives are made of when enjoyed in moderation. (Unless we’re talking about music, movies, television, and books. In which case, binge to your heart’s content.)

We’d love to know!

How do you allow yourself to have some wiggle room on your journey to health and wellness?

AND. What are your guilty pleasures — from televisions shows and movies to food and clothing? We want to know them all!
