Does self-care matter?

Do I really need to incorporate self-care into my daily routine? The answer is yes. I know you’re busy, you’ve got so much on your plate. You’re making breakfasts, lunches and dinners. You’re cleaning the house yet again (if you’re like me you feel like seriously didn’t I just clean this place yesterday?). You’re busy rushing the kids from activity to activity. You’re juggling home life, with work, volunteering; extended family responsibilities and so much more. Then you hear people say, you’ve got to find time for yourself and you wonder…when?

I totally feel you! I agree that you’re schedule is definitely full but I also want to invite you to be honest with yourself. If you keep going at this pace, without taking time to re-charge, is it possible you might experience some burnout? Could you already be feeling a bit of it now? I’m not asking you to overhaul your entire schedule. I’m simply asking you to take a look at it and see if there’s some way you can fit yourself into it. Whether it’s a 5 minute meditation in the morning or 5 minutes of gratitude journalling before bed. Please find some time to do something that helps you feel renewed. Trust me hon, you’ll be so glad you did.

Where are you planted?

Some of us have healthy roots, strong stems and beautiful leaves. Today, I want you to look at yourself a little bit closer. Are you planted in shallow soil? Are there rocks all around you? Are you not getting enough nutrients? Do you feel like you’re not getting enough sunlight?

Matthew 13, talks about the parable of the farmer sowing seeds. Some got eaten by birds, some wilted under the scorching sun, some were overtaken by other plants but some produced abundant crops.

“Maybe it’s time to be open to the blessings and beautiful abundance that’s meant just for you..” [Tweet this]

So I’ll ask you again, where are you planted? If you find yourself planted in an unhealthy place where you can’t grow and bloom beautifully and bear good fruit. Maybe it’s time to consider planting yourself deeper into your relationship with God. Maybe it’s time to surround yourself with good healthy friendships. Maybe it’s time to be open to the blessings and beautiful abundance that’s meant just for you.

You are meant to be more and do more but you can’t be effective if your roots are exposed and not getting what they need to survive and thrive. It’s time to invest in yourself. Plant yourself where you’ll get all of the healthy (self-care) nutrients you need, and in doing so, you’ll finally begin to start living your best life.

Create Your Own Luxury Spa Experience At Home

There is something remarkable about being completely relaxed.  Something about your mind, body and soul feeling thoroughly soothed. Something phenomenal about experiencing a renewed sense of invigoration and wellbeing.

As much as you’d love to go to the spa every week, you know there’s not enough time or money to do so. There’s good news though! You can create your own luxury spa experience right in the comfort of your own home.

Why not start your spa experience with some light stretching and a cup of herbal detox tea while filling up your bathtub. Then take a couple minutes to repeat some affirmations to yourself. I’ve compiled an infographic with 16 Daily Affirmations to help encourage you.

Next, pour in some quick dissolving sea salt crystals made with turmeric root to help boost your natural radiance. Then take some time to use a scrub with coriander seed oil and avocado oil to take away impurities, cleanse your pores and reveal your radiant, brighter looking skin.

“Give yourself this moment to fill your cup.” [Tweet this]

Remember, this is a moment to relax, rejuvenate, breathe, refresh, enjoy, nourish and renew you. Savour the moment. Be present. Suze Orman said, “No woman can control her destiny if she doesn’t give to herself as much as she gives of herself.” Give yourself this moment to fill your cup.

For your face, smooth on a creamy French pink clay mask to cleanse and draw out impurities while balancing your PH levels with hydrating rosemary oil. Transform yourself to your happy place with an invigorating body cleanser with skin conditioning alfalfa and chicory root extracts. Then soak up every drop of goodness by smoothing on a detox oil containing grape seed and sesame oils. It’s perfect for a relaxing massage. For thirsty skin, use a lotion with anise seed oil, Shea butter and vitamin B5 to help your skin look softer and smoother.

Finally, if you’re looking for a way to cool down. Liberally rub some Gelée made with juniper berry fruit oil, aromatic lavender and tangerine peel oils to soothe your tired muscles, hydrate your skin and help you feel a sense of balance and peace.

Fully immerse yourself in aromatherapy relaxation by transforming your bathtub into a blissful, beautiful oasis. If you’re curious about the products I use to help me feel renewed.
