    Morning Routines to Ease Anxiety

    At the very root, the purpose of self care is to pour back into yourself while setting yourself up for success to perform at your best. If you are an anxious person like myself then you already know the benefits behind self care + having a solid routine that works for you. Morning routines are extremely important in my self care tool kit and for great reason too. Morning routines set the tone for your day + dictate how well you are able to maneuver as changes come throughout the day.  This is especially important for people like me who cope with anxiety every single day. Think about the last…

    Are you Exhausted? Self -Care Tips for Exhausted Empaths

    Being an Empath can be challenging in general, but right now more than ever it is EXHAUSTING. Not to be confused with just having empathy which is surface level, the ability to understand or share feelings of others. Being an empath or a highly sensitive person goes much deeper than understanding feelings and emotions that don’t belong to you. As an empath we hold space for others; their emotions and energies take up space within our bodies + minds while sometimes displacing our own emotions and feelings. So to keep it simple to understand an empath, if you feel it they feel it. Having the ability to have an open…

    Taking Care of You

    I am a big believer in the idea that everything happens for a reason. That series of events are all connected in one way or another.  Over the last few weeks we have been taking inventory.  Making space for peace in so many different aspects of our lives.  Cleansing internally and externally in our homes, creating space for more Joy, Hope, PEACE. If you have been following along with me on my journey, then you know that we have been preparing for this exact moment in time. We have been doing the work internally on ourselves in order to be equipped to keep our peace within.   In light of the…

    Breathing Deep

    Big inhale in through the nose, filling up the lungs. Open mouth exhale slowly allowing the breath to leave the lungs. Do this twice more, taking your time to inhale deeply and exhale fully. Did you know breathing is part of our life force? That stress + anxiety can be reduced and managed through your breath? In times of stress or anxiety the way that we breath can be affected, causing us to breathe at a shorter and faster rate. This increase in the pace or rate of your breathing causes you to take in less oxygen which of course adds more to your stress and anxiety.  Slowing your breathing…

    Making Sleep A Priority

    Getting a good nights sleep is a form of self care for me. I have a sweet spot, its 7 hrs. After 7 solid hours of sleep at night I am a wonderful human being ready to kick ass. If I get anything less than 6 hrs, I’m still quite pleasant BUT the fuse is very very short. Now at this point in our lives I’m sure we all know the benefits of getting a solid amount of sleep each night. I’m also pretty sure we are all aware of the health benefits of being rested. The real question is how many of us are actually taking the steps to…

    How to Practice Body Positivity

    Now a days there is so much talk about body positivity and loving the skin you are in… but how did we even get to this point? How did we come to the idea that we must be told to love our bodies? More importantly, how to practice body positivity once we know we need it? Remember when you were a kid and didn’t have a care in the world? No cares about how you looked, what you wore or that maybe your hair didn’t stay as flat as so and so’s (My hair to this day NEVER stays flat) A few weeks back I took my now DramaTeen (formerly…

    Getting Grounded + Staying

    In my forever pursuit of mindful living, I am always in search of ways to stay grounded and to keep my head in times of difficulties. Mindful living and being “grounded” basically go hand in hand like PB & J or mac n cheese, you truly can not have one without the other. But what does staying “grounded” really mean? In its simplest form being grounded is all about “Control”. Not control over all the outside stuff going on around us, like traffic, things not going as planned etc, but control over yourself, your emotions and the things you personally believe. To “stay grounded” means you have the ability to…

    Inhale, Exhale: Meditation for Beginners

    Meditation for a long time has gotten a bad wrap. Truth be told there was a time not too long ago that if you asked me if I meditated I would boldly say nope thats not the life that I live. Like most of you reading I had preconceived notions in my head about what meditation was and how I didn’t need that sort of thing in my life (LOL). Spoiler alert, I was wrong on so many levels. Myths that I had built in my mind: Meditation is sitting in a room in silence, there is 0 chance I can ever quiet my thoughts, meditation has no real purpose…

    Check + Reset

    Ever make this bombass plan, maybe an evening at home, girls trip, vacation, dinner ect, whatever; everything is planned down to the “T” and some random sh*t happens to blow it up. Yea, me too. It is very easy to allow the frustrations of things not going the way you planned or envisioned get to you. Its also extremely easy to allow setbacks to fluster you or even give you a reason to throw in the towel and give up. But what if you were literally 1 day, 4 weeks, 6 months away from having a completely different outlook? This week has drug my ass since Monday morning and it…

    Bad. News.Bears.

    Last week, in a matter of moments my regular Wednesday went from peaceful to stressful. For some reason I continue to check emails throughout the day versus just unplugging like a sane person. In said email it’s bad news. Very Bad News Bears (a saying from my childhood when something went terribly wrong). Ok so in a former life I was in a position in which I had to deliver bad news to employees. The rule when delivering bad news is “the sandwich “, basically sandwiching very bad news between good or decent news. Back to this email, it essentially blasted a bunch of shallow yet good news followed by…
