You can look for it outside yourself but, you will
never find it. Inner beauty comes from within.
It’s a state of experiencing the wholeness of your
entire being in harmony and balance in the present
moment. We experience our inner beauty when
we are aligned with our life’s purpose and with
all aspects of our self. Individuals attuned to their
inner beauty exude a vibrant presence that feels
uplifting and energizing. Their inner state brings
a sense of pleasure and contentment in others.
Journey inward to re-experience the natural state of
yourself with these simple exercises:
1. Ever notice how much tougher your daily workout gets in the
summer heat? Arctic Heat’s lightweight Cooling Vest provides an
effective, comfortable solution. The vest weighs only 2 pounds

exertion. Available for $189.95 at ArcticHeatUSA.com.
Notice qualities within yourself that help
you to find meaning, pleasure and satisfaction.
Allowing yourself to feel love, joy, gratefulness and
compassion for your being enhances inner beauty.
2. Close your eyes and notice the breath that
inspires you. Allow yourself to witness the
sensations of your breath without judgment. How do

when engaging in struggle
or competition. It’s part
of the fight-or-flight
instinct. But gritting those
pearly whites actually causes your body to release energy-
sapping hormones. That’s something that dentist Dr. Randy
Furshman, an active tri-athlete, learned when he discovered
Under Armour’s new Performance Mouthwear. The ArmourBite
technology comfortably relieves pressure on your jaw, allowing
you to compete at your best. For a fitting, call 305.598.2622 or
changing. Our thoughts, beliefs, breath and actions
all affect our inner state. Pausing to feel, breathe
and observe brings us closer to experiencing the
inner beauty that’s our natural state. We just need
to remind ourselves to look within.

program. And don’t overdo it, either.
The biggest hurdle when it comes to
weight loss is injury that keeps you

favorite restaurant, ask the GM for

favorite dish, or even better, the
nutritional facts per serving. You
may be surprised (and shocked)!
If you have a family history of kidney
stones, you may want to avoid eating
beets at all costs. The vegetable
contains high amounts of oxalates,
which are tied to calcium-based
stones. Reducing salt also helps.
