FINDING YOUR TRUE SELF
Stressed out, overworked, tired, and flat-out lost. Somehow I found myself questioning what it meant to be truly happy, and sure enough, I wasn't alone. After talking with my friend, it became evident that we were stuck in an endless loop of bad habits. We relied on common vices like alcohol, unhealthy processed food, caffeine, cigarettes and medications to help us deal with stress, anxiety, exhaustion, and unhappiness. So, at that moment, we knew that something had to be done.
In order to be truly happy, we had to understand what happiness meant. Working out, eating a clean diet, meditating, and giving back to others became a staple in our life and allowed us to experience the basis of being our true selves. Still, there was something missing. Instead of using various vices to manage stress and anxiety symptoms, we sought a natural alternative. So, after countless hours of searching for natural remedies, we discovered the perfect solution – kava!
Long used in Polynesian culture, kava has been shown to provide a calming effect on the mind and body. It can help with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and muscle pain. However, we quickly realized it was difficult to obtain, inconvenient to prepare, hard to verify dosage, and tasted like dirt. There had to be a better and more practical way of utilizing this mystery plant. We dedicated every waking hour studying kava and how to make it convenient, affordable and taste great for everyone to enjoy.
THE TRUTH WITHIN
Now more than ever, people are challenged with anxiety, burdened with stress, and slowed by doubt. Too often we let physical, social, and emotional pressures strain our minds and bodies. This negatively impacts the way we think, feel, and act, thus preventing us from reaching our fullest potential. If left untreated, stress creates a long list of health issues and causes us to lose track of who we really are as a person.
