Would you believe me if I told you there are different times in your cycle when you’ll be more productive, more creative, more intuitive, more “on” or more “off”, etc? Our world is programmed for the male cycle which is quite frustrating in my opinion. The male hormone cycle is pretty predictable and starts over every single day the same as the last. A woman’s cycle is MUCH different and usually lasts 28 days before it starts over. We are not the same every single day and our hormones literally look like a roller coaster throughout the entire month if we track them. We have days when we are ready to tackle our biggest goals and other days where we want to be alone and are in a better state to be detail oriented and get things done that don’t require us to be so “on”. My job(s) require me to wear many hats. Some days I’m scheduling coffee consults with brides, other days I’m filming a video, writing a blog post or working on the tedious details of a project but something I’ve always noticed is that some days are weird. Some days I stumble over my words and have a hard time articulating during meetings and other days I’m totally with it. Some days I can’t focus on the details in front of me for the life of me and other days I am able to blow through a to-do list of computer work. This would frustrate me so much because I could tell on certain days I was connecting with clients, my work, a task, etc. and other days I just wasn’t. Sound familiar? It’s all in the cycle babe!Read More
It’s been a hot minute guys! The last time I posted was a few days after Christmas and then life got a little crazy! New years, my birthday, my husbands birthday, travel & some exciting changes have been keeping me very busy. Things are slowing down just a bit before we go out of town again and I am finally getting to sit down and catch up on blog posts! I just wanted today’s post to be a relaxed and chatty update so let’s get into it!
So as I’m sure you saw in the title, I started a YouTube channel! This has been something I’ve been dying to do for a very long time and I’m SO happy I finally took the leap and am making it happen. I am having so much fun learning how to edit and expanding my creativity in a whole new way! I am currently uploading my 4th video which is actually a fun instagram q&a! Can’t wait for that to be up! My husband and I went on a little weekend getaway and had so much fun filming a little bit of that! You can watch that here!Read More
My goal this fall and winter season has been to stay calm, healthy, and thriving. I know the colder months can cause a slump in our immune system, mental health, and all around wellbeing. I have always suffered from the winter blues to an extent but last year was the worst it’s been in a while. I ended up sick for over a week and I know if was all due to my mental state. I was stressed, lacking in vitamin D, and not properly taking care of myself. This year I was determined to make things different.Read More
Sometimes I feel like we wait for someone to give us permission to take care of ourselves or we wait until we get sick or something happens before we start to take better care of ourselves. Please take this post as your permission to spend more time taking care of YOU this season. The busyness of the season can really come crashing down on us if we allow it to and in the past I have been very guilty of this but our stress is always in our own hands.Read More
It’s that time of year again! Shopping for our loved ones becomes one of the top things on our priority list but rarely does that involve being conscious about what we are buying and the way it may effect the planet. This year I am trying to be much more eco-conscious with my purchases and shop for the ones I love with their health and wellbeing as well as the planet in mind. I have compiled 15 things that I think would make awesome gifts for anyone on your list!Read More
