These cups are so cute!! I am all about good vibes
It’s so important to be around positive energy- good vibes! We may not have control over what others say or do but we do have control over how we react to it. It is in our reactions that will either make a situation worse or better. I have been dealing with this lately and its been super challenging and very draining But at the end of the day I can honestly say I feel good about how I reacted and dealt with the situation the best I could. Sometimes that means letting go of something that is no longer serving your highest purpose and letting yourself be open to something better and having the faith that it will come!
If you are not happy with how your life is you have the power to change it. Take responsibility for where you are at and be kind to yourself. It all starts with the decision to change. Once you put that into motion, things will automatically flow to you.
In the meantime, find people who lift you up and who support you and believe in you. Listen to motivational podcasts, personal development, do some yoga, meditate, just be around positive energy! it really does make a difference!
Putting on regular clothes for the first time in a long time and it felt good! ...
After being sick with food poisoning 😝 for the last week I am now doing some gut healing. Especially since 80-90% of our immunity is found in the gut.
I will admit it was kinda scary being sick during this time but so grateful for all the healing tools I had at home to help.
Here are some of the things that I am doing to help heal and seal my gut that might help you too.
•L Glutamine- this is an amazing supplement and it helps heal the gut lining as well as a great recovery drink after workouts.
•Essential oils oregano, peppermint and a digestion blend- (do your research on the oils because not all oils are made to be ingested)
•eliminating coffee (this is hard now because I am feeling better and want my coffee
•probiotics (not all probiotics are made the same….do your research on these. I am taking Just Thrive probiotics
•CBD ( I like soul CBD)
•tons of water •and a little energy work
Hope this helps!
Since November life has been very stressful and I have been doing all the things to combat it. Its so easy to let things go when we are stressed out😬
.First off lets talk about cortisol and what it does. Cortisol has gotten a bad rap. It is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands and its known as the stress hormone- the flight or fight response. We are hard wired to have high cortisol in the morning and low cortisol in the evening. This rhythm often gets disrupted by lifestyle and perceived stressors- our brains can not differentiate between perceived stressors and real stressors. As cortisol levels are disrupted, norepinephrine (neurotransmitter) levels increase. High norepinephrine causes increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and it feels like anxiety. When cortisol is depleted it depletes other hormones causing a host of problems.
Here are some of the things I have been doing to combat stress and balance out my adrenals.
🔅meditation (kundalini yoga
🔅anything that activates the parasympathetic system
🔅cordyceps (I add this to my morning coffee)
🔅licorice root (best taken in morning)
🔅Vit A,C & B5
🔅Ashwagandha (use at bedtime)
🔅Glycine (good for liver at bedtime)
.If you are still feeling tired, have slow recovery or feelings of stress and anxiety check your cortisol levels. Its an easy test to do at home. Want more info on this?
Wow...that full moon yesterday was powerful! So.much.energy! Did you feel it? I don’t know about you but this year has been full of lessons, challenges, hardships and growth to say the least.
My feeling is that ending of decades is a time of closure and rebirth. Anyone feel me here? I am ready for new beginnings and new exciting adventures to come my way but first its time to focus on how to end the year in a great place emotionally, physically and spiritually. Here are some of the things I am adapting to to make some positive changes to end this year in a great place.🙏
*Look for the good in each day even if you are having a shit day! There is always something to be grateful for. Just remember that.
*Meditate daily- make it a priority because I can honesty say I feel a huge difference when I don’t make time for it. I feel scattered, and just not grounded.
*Workout/move your body. We are not meant to be sitting all day and our bodies need to move and stretch. Start a new workout program or make it a goal to workout 3-5 times a week- consistency is key! The one I am doing now is 35-45 min a day. So doable.
*Practice self care- this is a huge one and usually the first thing to get pushed aside when life gets crazy. The thing is its the thing we need the most when life gets crazy. Take some time to get a massage, put some essential oils on your feet and do a self massage, take an epsom salt bath with essential oils and crystals, light some candles, do whatever feels good to you. Make this a habit to do something daily for yourself.
*Add more fresh fruits/ vegetables into your diet. Try eating vegetables with every meal. This will give you energy too!
*Surround yourself with positive supportive friends- this is so important.
*Get enough sleep- I am guilty of this one! Sleep is key to a healthy life and so many of us have issues with it. Make this a priority.
*Personal development- this one is a no brainer. We do better when we know better. I love learning how to become a better human.
I want to hear what you are doing to end the year in a good place!!
