Contribution to Body Awareness Project Course:

Liz Wolf, one of our incredible guest speakers in The Body Awareness Project: SKIN Course, gives some empowering tips on how to help enable body awareness and self-love. She says it best in one of our talks for this Project when we discuss how we have all fixated so much on our image in the mirror. It consumes us, it makes us feel less confident and insecure, and it changes us in a negative way. Liz’s advice as you heal your skin? “Disconnect yourself from your body is seeing in the mirror and instead, go show your body what you can DO.” It's time to alleviate judgment and give yourself some grace.

Contribution to Body Awareness Project Course:

The connection between skin and gut is so important, and often times overlooked! Sarah Morgan describes just how important the massive group of bacteria in our digestive tract truly is to helping the immune system do its job correctly. The “buddies” so to speak, help metabolize hormones and control inflammation in the skin! Not only are these little guys crucial for reducing problems with food sensitivities, but they also work hard to communicate with our brain as probiotics and play a huge role in mood, sleep and focus. Inside The Body Awareness Project SKIN Box, we have included the Buddies in My Belly: Be Calm probiotic supplement because GOOD BUDDIES = BEAUTIFUL SKIN.

Speaking from her own experiences of trial and error with many different skin products, Diane has been able to narrow down the products and foods in her diet that she’s found work best for her. It’s all about finding your “new normal” through eliminating certain foods out of your diet to see how your body and skin may respond, and then slowly reintroducing them. Diane says it best, “You are your own experiment.

A little patience and a whole lot of nourishment.

Contribution to Body Awareness Project Course:

While overcoming her own personal battles with acne throughout college and her young adult years, Juli Bauer provides a great foundation of practicing safe skin care treatment and how to come up with a plan on leaning away from conventional, hazardous products. Juli also speaks about specific foods that are known as “triggers” for skin inflammation (a.k.a. SUGAR, eggs, and even nuts)! But the most important takeaway may very well be Juli’s defining moment when she became fully aware of how powerful her body truly is capable of being. Her mentality that once focused on “getting skinny” switched to “getting stronger.” It was only after transforming her negative thoughts into self-love, that she noticed her body making powerful and positive changes.

Liz Smithers

I am a small Adaptogenic Wellness business owner based on Kauai, raised in the Virginia countryside outside of DC. A history of anxiety, disordered eating, and toxic food patterns is what led me to this massive reprogramming of my approach to wellness. Wellness should never be vanilla. Percolating consciousness from within is a delicate balance of movement + connection + eating right for your own body. I started Laka Living to help build a bridge from uninformed to hyper-in tune through product design, raw delivery, and simply steeping in the fact that no one, even myself, knows everything. Laka Living is an exotic approach for twenty-somethings and older to go above and beyond their current idea of living well. Welcome to our Adapted Paradise.
