PFD’s + Why They Are So Important

PFD’s + Why They Are So Important

No, not personal floatation devices! Although those are important too 🙂 Phone free dates! For some of us it’s hard to imagine, but yes I’m suggesting it! Schedule a date with your love that is completely phone free. Put your phones away in a different room, or leave them at home if you go out.

Cell phones are wonderful for communication and connection. However, many of us have grown so accustomed to using them that it’s second nature to just be mindlessly scrolling through social media or web browsing.

When we remove the “screen” from our reality we can re-connect at the meaningful level we are supposed to as humans. Gaze into each other’s eyes, have conversation and enjoy each other’s presence.

All we truly have in this life is the current moment. Phones and electronics can place us in an autopilot mode, or state of constant distraction. Connecting in the now with your partner is key to creating a lasting future with them. Show each other how much you matter to one another by dedicating your undivided attention at least one date night per week.

It will be an excellent reminder of why you are together in the first place. One of the best ways to create happiness for yourself is create happiness for another person. We all crave attention, and want to feel loved and important. Give your partner the love and attention they deserve by going phone free for just one night together!

My husband and I adopted this ritual when we first started dating in 2011. We were on a date and every single table surrounding us was occupied with couples sitting together, not saying a word, on their phones. We both looked at each other and made a promise that we would never end up like that.

Cell phones are great tools for communication, but can become problematic if overused. As with most things, moderation is key. Use them when you need to, but don’t fub your best friend! No text, meme, or article is worth ruining a relationship!

Much love,

Lighten Up! Tips To Stay Zen During The Holiday Season

Lighten Up! Tips To Stay Zen During The Holiday Season

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I take myself WAY too seriously. I get hyper-immersed in the grind: deadlines, appointments, shopping, cleaning, and other duties + obligations.

Around the holidays can be extra trying.  Often we find ourselves traveling, spending, and eating more than usual.

Due to the nature of our society, we are conditioned to stay busy and keep hustlin’ & bustlin’. However, it’s important to remember that we are human beings, not human doings.  We all inherently know this, but sometimes we stray from our true nature. 

First things first, IT’S OKAY! We are awfully hard on ourselves, so the first step to re-connecting is to forgive ourselves. Feeling bad about sloppy decisions or something we deem “bad,” is never going to help us move toward a better feeling place. 

If you catch yourself feeling overwhelmed or off-track, follow these steps in order to regroup, recharge, and re-align.

1: Forgive Yourself: You are doing the work that needs to be done and bettering yourself each and every day.  You are perfect, exactly as you are. You are right where you need to be.  No matter how “bad” things may seem, trust the journey, embrace the ups and downs, it’s just a ride.

2. Do Something For You: Although giving to others is very important, don’t undervalue the power of giving to yourself.  When you take care of yourself, you can better serve others.  You will only extend that level of  vibration to to others. Would you rather be at your highest vibe? (Love, Peace, Joy, Enlightenment) Or a mediocre or low vibe? (Sadness, Depression, Anger, Apathy) Hopefully it’s the first one 🙂 Take care of you! Set aside at least 20 minutes per day to do something you truly enjoy. Whether it be a hobby, project, bubble bath, or exercise.  Do something that lights your fire and helps you reconnect with your senses.

3. Lighten Up! It’s okay to be serious about achieving excellence in all your endeavors.  Don’t forget, that laughter is the best medicine.  Proven benefits of laughter include: relaxes the entire body, boosts the immune system, protects the heart, burns calories, releases endorphins, lightens anger’s load, may help you live longer. Need I say more?

Take breaks during this busy time of year to re-connect with yourself, stay in alignment, and laugh a little! It’s the season of joy! 

Love & Light

Young Living Essential Oils

Young Living Essential Oils

Hey babes!  I absolutely love Young Living Essential Oils! They have literally changed my life. I have learned by using the correct oils at the right times, to become more centered and in alignment with who I truly am.

I first learned what essential oils were at a yoga class, the instructor dabbed some sweet orange on our wrists and told us to set an intention for the class.  It was so uplifting and heightened the positive effects of the yoga during, and after the class.  I began researching different types of oils and what they could be used for.  I found out there is literally an oil for everything!

I picked up a few here and there at drugstores, salons, or online.  I continued to fall in love with them as I worked with them more often.  Then during one of our family holidays, I was telling my mother in law about how much I loved diffusing, and using essential oils.  She got super excited and ran to her cabinet and brought back a handful of Young Living Oils.  She was like “You HAVE to try these!.”  She gifted me some starter oils, and their amazing desk reference book.  After that, I joined Young Living with her as my sponsor and have never looked back.

The smell, consistency, and quality is worlds apart from other brands you can  purchase off the shelf at your local supermarket.  I am passionate about using quality oils and want to share this with you!

If you are curious about exploring Young Living click the link below and become a member with me as your sponsor!  I offer three free 1:1 coaching and discovery sessions.  Session one we will get to know each other, session two will focus on your personal wellness goals, and session three I will offer my recommendations based on our previous two sessions.

Vibrational Frequency

Vibrational Frequency

After studying the universal laws for quite some time, I came across this excellent chart by David R. Hawkins.  It is clear, colorful, and very easy to understand. We can all heal our energy in this moment if we focus on moving up the vibrational scale one level from how we feel currently.  By focusing on where we want to be, rather than where we are it will give us the momentum we need to get where we are going.   On the flip side, never feel bad about where you are, that will not help your situation.  The Law of Polarity lets us know that it is perfectly normal to experience all emotions on this scale, because we wouldn’t know how great love and enlightenment feels if we didn’t know how its other end of guilt and shame.  Getting to the best vibrational frequency you can at any given time is the key to living a more zen life. 9CFD5F05-1D17-4C7D-932B-795922B346A5
