Tis’ the season for illness. I am talking, coughs and colds. And this is about the only thing about this season that I don’t enjoy! Give me all the of colorful leaves, the sweater weather, the Christmas cheer, the lights and the coziness that winter brings. But colds. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I’ve been anticipating this post and sharing with you my results from the 7 day detox. I want to preface this by saying my results will be nothing related to the scale, in fact I didn’t even use the scale once on this detox to measure anything. To be, that’s not what detoxing is about, because there are so many more benefits.
I started using oils regularly in my home early on in this year, and have been reaping the benefits ever since! I’ve always enjoyed scents like lavender, peppermint, frankincense, but I hadn’t really been educated on using them or the super powers that they hold!
We are just back from our annual family cottage week. All rested and rejuvenated. This is our third year getting away and renting a cottage as a family.
Now that August is here, it is a slippery slope into fall. Though I am not ready for the summer to end, my favourite season is just around the corner!! Continue reading “Cauliflower Shepherds Pie”
I still remember the moment I realized needed to make a change. I was sitting on my bed after the scale tipped over 200 pounds. How did I let myself get so disconnected with what was happening to my body? Continue reading “My Story: What Are You Waiting For?”
In the busyness that is today’s world, our minds sometimes don’t stop. We are constantly wrapped up in this ‘there are not enough hours in the day’ mentality and that ‘we can sleep when were dead’ concept. Though I am hustling hard to build my health and wellness empire, I am constantly reminding myself and taking the time to ensure I have a good nights sleep. Truth is, I love my sleep! There is nothing better than crawling into my bed after a long day and drifting off to sleep. As a mom, I don’t always get enough of it (early rising toddler over here), and I really feel the effects if I am sleep deprived. Continue reading “Sleep: The Natural Healer”
A Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!
I am so grateful to have both you and all my followers along with me on this journey to health and wellness. I have officially been writing for this blog for a year- and I cannot believe how fast it has gone.
Maybe you have been hearing about them over social media, maybe you had no idea that people were using essential oils again, or maybe all you know about essential oils is that they are oils. Either way, I wanted to take some time to share with you a little bit about my experience with them, and also to educate you a bit more on how easy they are to use!
If you have been following along with me for the past year on my blogging journey, then you will know I am a big advocate for loving yourself. In a day where social media is so in your face, there are even more ways than ever to trick you into thinking you are not good enough, or that you don’t measure up.
