CBD oil is infused into beauty products for its skin-soothing, calming and hydrating benefits, as it is known to be beneficial for aging, acne-prone skin and inflammation.

Book everyone should read? The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu

If you could eat only three things a day, what would they be? Eggs, soup (preferably a Korean soup called yukgaejang) and fish

What’s your morning ritual? Upon opening my eyes, I take a moment to be thankful for my health and my life. I spend about five to 10 minutes doing some light traditional martial arts movements combined with deep breathing and meditation techniques.
