Raise your hand if you would love to include personal, self-care tactics into your daily life? Or at least several times a week without truly falling off the wagon?? I hear ya!!! It takes work and re-programming the mind to make time for personal development and let it become a non-negotiable in your life...meaning nothing or no one will fill the space and time you give to yourself for something meaningful for you.
What does it mean to you to incorporate mindful, healthier, happier practices into your life? What does that look like? Are you truly committed to transformation and creating a lifestyle that truly fits you??

If you truly use essential oils, the statement "there's an oil for that" is legit your life moto! It may seem silly or cliche but trust me, if you want to learn how and when to use essential oils, daily life will show you the way. Many days I could easily use a dozen different oils ranging from something for skin soothing, mental clarity, a kid falling, removing gum, an extra shine boost in the dishwasher, enhance my meditation practice, and/or, one of my personal true needs, for the feeling of being overwhelmed.
If you shook your head when I said overwhelmed, congratulations, you're human! We try to fit 290 things to do within our waking hours. And if most of them are eaten up by a 9-5, well I don't have to preach to any of you how overwhelming you feel when you clock out! And here's the kicker, many of you never fully check out! You'll go straight from work to the next appointment or responsibility. Are you getting anxious just reading this post so far???
Here's the good news...you can CHOOSE to change the way you perceive your life. You can choose to go from being overwhelmed to grateful in a matter of mere moments. In case you missed it, the ability to choose is the most important factor in this equation. You can always choose to see your life as something that makes you tired or you can choose to see your life as something you enjoy. What I'm learning is we need tools to help us with this. We have paradigms, or habitual ways of thinking, that keep us reacting in ways that may not be serving our greater good.
One of the easiest tools to keep close by are essential oils. A true favorite of mine lately has been the Young Living Essential Oils blend Peace & Calming. Ohhhhh my lanta! It's sensual, floral, and earthy all at the same time which helps you feel a sense of true grounding, being in your body and present to the moment so you can get the momentum you need to change your perception. And when you begin to change the way you look at something, this can be what you need to enter into clarity and gratefulness. Is there a scent that helps you overcome feeling overwhelmed?
If you would like to experience this blend and many others, let's talk! I have classes coming up or I'm always happy to plan a 1 on 1! Let's do this!!!
Let's be honest, most people see their job or occupation as something they have to do, not want to do. Looking past the whole winning the lottery so you don't have to work daydream, could you do anything else to bring some joy into your day if you are finding you dread your current place of employment??? You bet you can!!!
As a yoga instructor and essential oils enthusiast, I see firsthand how taking a moment to incorporate mindful techniques can totally change your negative mood and provide some optimism and refreshment into your life. The first step is MAKING THE DECISION you will incorporate these practices to see a true difference. How many times have we tried something once or twice and didn't stick with it and claim it "didn't work"? We can not expect changes if we do not put the time in! Alright, alright, enough with the tough love!
Let me share with you a few things that only take moments to bring attention to but could have lasting results that are beneficial:
It was a an early night for tucking in the kids on a Friday and I wanted to just veg out. The hubby and I haven't watched a movie together in quite awhile, so Netflix, here we came! Now I'm sure you're like me where many times, you scrolled through all your options in the same amount of time as a full length movie!!! So this time, we clicked on the first thing we saw that seemed interesting...enter Bird Box with with Sandra Bullock.
Ummmmm, what the heck?! I don't know if it's getting older combined with the fact I truly try to limit things that could put me in a bad place but I can no longer handle scary movies! This one surely had some parts that kept me at the edge of my seat but also, some gruesome scenes that gave me knots in my belly. Sure, I could've turned it off at anytime but I just kept rolling with it for some reason!
After the movie, I knew it would be hard to actually sleep and I didn't want THAT to be the last thing I remember before hitting the hay. I thought about what I could do to help calm the nervous system and immediately, essential oils came to mind! My goto, especially for the kids when they become frightened, is the Young Living essential oil blend Joy. It is floral and uplifting so I immediately began to inhale this oil straight from the bottle! I even offered it to the hubs since he was also feeling the low vibes after the movie! I followed it with Valor II, a blend that is no longer in stock so I covet this one! I would've grabbed my tried and true blend Valor (not to be confused with Valor II) but I was in no mood to find where I placed it last! It's sensual and soothing...just what I needed at that moment. Finally, I busted out my handy Sleep roller bottle and used it on the bottoms of my feet before putting socks on. It's the ultimate night-time roller with lavender and cedarwood oils. I also listened to a quick less than 10 minute guided meditation before flying off into LaLa Land. Let's coin this the After a Scary Movie protocol!!!
I can attest, I did not think about that movie anymore last night, slept very well, and did not wake up with that feeling of the movie being "stuck" on me as others have in the past. If you do not have these oils to help with those moments you are afraid, feeling low vibes, or for a good night's rest, let me know!!! It's time to get you hooked up! :)
