Lifestyle Changes

Time for some Monday motivation?

The new year is around the corner and that is when many people look to making lifestyle changes. As a wellness coach I have walked the path and am grateful that at one point in my life I was burdened by weight.

For me, it wasn’t just the physical weight I was carrying that I wanted to shed. There was so much inner work that I did and as a result my radiant self emerged.

The first picture was taken six months after my first son was born—I was terrified and overwhelmed. A young 20 year old mom with a kid and a mortgage was a little daunting. I dove into motherhood and completely forgot about myself. I soon had two more kids and a bigger mortgage. It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that I began to see myself as important and in need of self-care.

I started with walking daily (which I continue to this day) and I started making choices around food. I also started to really do the inner work that was required. I often say “I woke up”. And in that awakening, I truly began to emerge from the outer shell that I had placed around me.

As I began to shine my life began to change dramatically. There is a vibrancy to my essence that was not able to be felt when I was burdened by the heaviness physically and emotionally.

I’d love to walk along side you in your emerging and be there to guide you when it gets hard. My services include more than just yoga. I also offer wellness coaching and a holistic approach to health. It is never just about the weight and I would love to partner with you to reveal the inner parts of yourself that can be found with a solid plan.

Let’s do this!

Good Vibes

Everything in the universe is made of energy that vibrates at different frequency levels. Even seemingly solid objects like a rock, or your physical body are now understood by scientists to be made up of constantly moving energy that is organized by waveforms and frequencies. The rate of frequency you (or an object) vibrates at is called your vibration.

Through scientific clinical research, essential oils have been shown to vibrate at a higher electromagnetic frequency than any other substances measured.

Both crystals and essential oils are complex natural creations. Their vibration, scent, and visual beauty can have a wide range of effects on our energy and vibration. Crystals have specific and unique vibrations.

Combining both of these amazing, natural properties into a blend and then applying it to myself brings such a sense of completion to my mind, body and spirit. I can target specific energy points in my body—known as chakras—as well by choosing specific essential oils and crystals that resonate vibrationally with that energy center.

When people come into my home or my studio I often hear that they just “feel” the peace and goodness. I believe it is because I have crystals everywhere and the vibe that comes from them infused my space.

This roller contains carnelian which is a great gemstone for the sacral chakra—creativity, sensuality, 1:1 relationship, etc. It’s vibration, along with essential oils like clary sage, patchouli, bergamot, ylang ylang and wild orange bring balance to the second chakra. Plus, they smell amazing together and increase libido and other feelings of spiciness.

Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday!

Mindful movement is a huge part of my life and I continue to work on it. Sometimes my mind wanders to work tasks or my long to-do list, but I really try to stay in the moment. I find I can call my spirit back to the present simply by taking a breath and noticing my surroundings.

I try to walk outside at least two times a day—in the winter it is a bit harder because of icy trails but I have found several routes in my day that I can take that are beautiful! I try to leave my phone in my pocket and really take in the scenery and enjoy the pause button I can choose to take.

Mindful movement is walking your way to a better state of mind. What is your practice of mindful movement?

Mood Management

Essential oils affect the brain is through our smell receptors that travel up to the olfactory bulb. These smell receptors make direct links to the limbic system, a complex system of nerves and networks in the brain.

The limbic system connects to the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, hormone balance, emotion, and mood. Different chemicals in odor molecules cause different nerve impulses to be sent.

Depending on the type and amount of essential oils used, different body reactions can occur. Certain essential oils trigger the brain to release specific neurochemicals such as endorphins, serotonin, and enkephalin. These substances reduce pain and inflammation, calm and relax the body, and create a feeling of well-being. This is why essential oils can be so helpful when using them aromatically!
You can use essential oils aromatically by just adding a few drops to your diffuser with water or you can breathe in the aroma out of cupped hands or from the bottle. You can add 1-3 drops to a tissue or cotton ball & inhale, and you can also wear oils as perfume or in diffuser necklaces to get the aromatic benefits!

Natural Cleaning

Over the last few years I have transitioned out of chemicals and into natural cleaning. Gosh, I wish I had known all this when I was raising kids.😳

Think about this—our grandparents cleaned with natural things like vinegar, baking soda, lemons, washing soap, etc…and then companies came along and mass produced synthetic and chemical filled “cleaners”.

All those products with repeated exposure can cause serious health risks. The constant cycle of illness and hormonal imbalance may be a result of exposure to these chemicals. (I am happy to share my research if you’d like it)

Our skin is our largest organ, and our lungs are the filters for our oxygen that goes into our blood and our brain, and we are touching and breathing that stuff in? 😳🤦🏼‍♀️

I now choose to clean naturally.

If you are done exposing you and your famly to chemicals and want to learn more, send me an email. l am happy to share my experiences and recipes.

Happy cleaning!

Investing in Wellness

This is such a common thought when it comes to our health. Years ago I was fine spending money on so many things unrelated to health and would make the excuse “I don’t have money for that” when it came to something for my health or wellness.

When I first invested in quality essential oils I thought the same thing and even got the smallest starter kit I could. I wasn’t sure they would do what people claimed and I was on a tight budget. And I had many medical bills I was working to pay off! I get it. Your hard earned money is important to you.

However, I started to shift the way I thought about it. I began to realize I was paying for my illness rather than investing in wellness.

Check it out. When you are sick you’ll likely have the following costs:

👨‍⚕️ doctor co-pay

💊 prescription drugs

💊 over the counter drugs

💵 missed income

What if instead of investing in your illness, you started investing in your WELLNESS and used essential oils to help you stay healthy? You know, like preventative care and then having natural solutions in hand to work fast with your body, instead of the reacting style of medicine we’ve grown used to.

This month when you get started investing in wellness with essential oils you’ll also get $50 in free oils to keep growing your wellness.

Seriously. And ask yourself why you’re investing in illness? I would love to help you shift your thinking to wellness—mindset, diet, exercise and essential oils.

Wellness Wednesday—Deep Breathing

Wellness Wednesday! (A day late☺️)

Do you ever feel like you can’t catch your breath, or you’re mind is spinning, or even your physical body feels tense and tight?

I know for me sometimes my busy schedule can make me feel like this. We know that there is correlation with stress and cortisol levels, and cortisol levels lead to not so good diseases.

Check this out though! Science says controlled breathing may help alleviate stress. Simply taking mindful and full breaths can lower your stress, which means your cortisol is lower.

Plus you’ll be an overall happier person! Take some deep breaths, fill your lungs and then smile!
