Hello May!  

May is the month of flowers. So many trees and other plants are in full flower this month that the whole world seems perfumed by their presence. 

But all the activity of May can be hard to love if you haven't prepared your body for it. 

Sore muscles, sagging energy, spring colds can all detract from the life you want to lead in May. So a well functioning body is key to enjoying all that this time of year has to offer.

So this newsletter edition is dedicated to getting our main drainage system unclogged and our bodies
detoxing properly so we can sleep better and live each day to the fullest. 

Join us in embracing the joy of May and LET'S GO!

Signs Of A Clogged Lymphatic System & 10 Ways To Cleanse It
Loretta T Friedman, RN,MS,DC,CCN,CNS,DACBN,DCBCN
1 Nov 2021

Getting rid of the toxic matter that accumulates in the body is one of the most important ways to stay healthy. 
The human body consists of many organs and glands that are supposed to excrete toxins from the body. This system of 
organs and glands is called the lymphatic system. Unfortunately, the lymphatic system is likely to get clogged and 
does not function properly in most people.

The lymphatic system is a part of the circulatory system and a crucial part of the immune system. 
It consists of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, the thymus gland, and the tonsils. The lymphatic system has multiple functions such as:

* Removing interstitial fluid from tissue
* Absorbing and transporting fatty acids and fats from the digestive system
* Transporting white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones
* Transporting antigen-presenting cells (APCs), such as dendritic cells, to the lymph nodes where an immune response is stimulated

Unfortunately, the lymphatic system is out of balance in many people due to nutrient deficiencies, high intake of processed foods, and lack 
of physical activity. Below is a list of other health conditions which could suggest that your lymphatic system requires a serious cleansing:
* Arthritis
* Skin conditions
* Digestive disorders
* Frequent headaches
* Sinus infections
* Unexplained injuries
* Excess weight
* Chronic fatigue
The lymphatic system doesn’t have its own active pumping system and it needs the body’s movement, breathing, intestinal activity, and muscle action to create flow and push the toxins out of the body.Below are 10 ways to help create flow in your lymphatic system and remove toxins from your body.

1. Exercise
Regular exercise is key for a healthy lymphatic system. Start with less vigorous training sessions, and try to slowly incorporate more intense 
exercises to your routine. The most stimulating exercise for the lymphatic system is rebounding on a small trampoline.

2. Alternative Treatments
A lymphatic drainage with Lymph-Biologics is one of the easiest ways to detoxify the lymphatic system. This 3-part light wave with oscillating 
frequency can stimulate circulation in the lymph, and drain fat, fluids, and toxins away from your cells for proper elimination. Acupuncture 
is another effective treatment that will help you stimulate lymph flow and help remove toxins from the body.

3. Hot and Cold Showers
The hot water helps dilate the blood vessels, while the cold water shrivels them. This creates a “pump” action that forces out the toxic fluids that have remained in the body. 
This therapy is not recommended for pregnant women or for those who suffer from cardiovascular disease.

4. Use Dry Brushing
Brush your dry skin in a circular motion for 10 minutes by using a natural bristle brush, and then take a shower. You can combine dry brushing with hot and cold showers for better effects.

5. Drink Clean Water
It is advisable to drink up to half your bodyweight in ounces of water per day to further cleanse your system of toxins. 
(For example, if you are 160 lbs. = 80 ounces of water). You should also drink a few glasses of lemon water as well.)

6. Avoid Wearing Tight Clothes
By wearing excessively tight clothing, you are reducing circulation in the lymphatic system. Tight clothing can cause blockages
 in the lymphatic system, which can lead to an accumulation of toxins.

7. Breathe Deeply
Our bodies have 3 times more lymph fluid than blood, but there is no organ to pump it. The pumping action of deep breathing
 will help the lymphatic system transport the toxins into the blood before they are detoxified by the liver.

8. Eat Foods That Promote Lymph Flow
Eating raw and nutrient rich foods promotes a healthy lymphatic system. Some of the best cleansing foods for the lymphatic system are:
* Leafy green vegetables
* Low sugar fruits
* Ground flaxseed
* Chia seeds
* Avocados
* Garlic
* Brazil nuts
* Almonds
* Walnuts
* Cranberries

9. Avoid Foods That Cause Blockages To The Lymphatic System. Improve your lymphatic health by avoiding the following foods:
* Processed foods
* Conventionally raised meat
* Artificial sweeteners
* Conventional dairy
* Sugar
* Soy
* Table salt

10. Drink Herbal Tea That Stimulates Lymph Flow
There are many herbs that can be very helpful for the lymphatic system. Use the following herbs to prepare teas that promote lymph health:
* Echinacea
* Astragalus
* Wild indigo root
* Goldenseal
* Cilantro
* Poke root
* Parsley

Exercise and the lymphatic system

Your lymphatic system is a central part of your immune system. Learn how it works and how you can support its vital role in cancer prevention.

BY Heather Alexander, at the MD Andersen Centre
 
You’ve probably heard of lymph nodes. Perhaps you know that you have a whole lymphatic system in your body. But do you know what it does?
This little discussed network in your body is a crucial part of your immune system and it has a central role to play in cancer prevention.
Your body relies on your lymphatic system to remove waste, like bacteria, viruses, toxins and abnormal cells that can lead to cancer. And every step you take helps it do its job.
That’s because the lymphatic system does not have an organ like the heart to pump fluid around your body. Lymph fluid relies on movement and the contraction of your muscles to make it flow. 

What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is made up of tiny tubes called lymphatic vessels, which collect lymph fluid. 
These vessels route the fluid through the lymph nodes, which house immune cells that kill off abnormal cells and other harmful substances.
The lymph fluid then drains back into the blood stream, which flows through the kidneys where waste is removed and passed out in your urine.

“The lymphatic system is really part of the immune system,” says Edward Chang, M.D., an MD Anderson surgeon who treats cancer patients who develop problems with their lymphatic system after treatment.
“It is part of how your body recognizes and attacks abnormal cells that have mutations that can progress to cancer if left unchecked,” he says.

 

How does exercise help your lymphatic system?
There are many systems in your body that rely on exercise. The lymphatic system is no exception.

“The lymphatic system is stimulated by moving your muscles and getting your heart rate up,” says MD Anderson 
Senior Physical Therapist Sarah Cleveland.

 “All these things stimulate the lymphatic flow.”  The contraction of your muscles becomes the pump that helps the
 fluid get around your body.
 Exercise can help the lymphatic system flow more effectively and potentially help prevent infections and other diseases, like cancer.
“Any exercise is helpful for the lymphatic system,” says Cleveland. “Exercise under water is especially helpful because of the 
pressure from the water.”

Stay at a healthy weight

Your lymphatic system also works best if you maintain a healthy weight. This is another reason why exercise is helpful –
 it helps you keep your weight down.
“Obesity does cause damage to the lymphatic system,” says Dr. Chang. “It makes people more likely to experience 
problems like lymphedema where lymph fluid gets stuck and cannot drain from certain parts of the body.”

Obesity is linked to 12 types of cancer because it causes inflammation and hormonal imbalances. If your lymphatic 
system is struggling it may compound those problems.“A healthy lifestyle, which includes a healthy diet and exercise 
is very important,” says Chang.

May's Spotlight- Cypress Essential Oil


Cypress is one of our favorite conifer oils - deep, woodsy and full of incredible health benefits! Whether you are looking for healthy skin and hair, support for your heart and circulatory system, a companion for yoga and meditation or a deep breath of fresh air, this crisp woodsy oil is what you need.

JUST A DROP OF CYPRESS

* Has a clean, evergreen aroma

* Supports healthy circulation and heart health

* May help to reduce the appearance of blemishes when applied topically

* Promotes the appearance of healthy-looking hair and skin

* Is a great companion for dry brushing and lymphatic health

* Creates a grounding atmosphere when diffused

We love the tree oils and Cypress is no exception! It's in some of our favorite blends like R.C. and Aroma Siez to name a few, and an ingredient in our beloved Raindrop roller! (more on that below) It's calming and grounding and wonderful on the skin.


LYMPHATIC HEALTH AND CYPRESS

Your lymphatic system is a crucial part of your health, yet an often overlooked one! The lymphatic system is part of the immune system. It works to protect your body from illness, to maintain body fluid levels, to absorb digestive fats and remove cellular waste.

The lymphatic system works hard to filter out all the things the body experiences. And there are some really simple, really easy health habits you can start today to give this system a boost on the daily!

Exercise, hydration, dry brushing, Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil and Cypress can be huge benefits for lymphatic health and circulation in general! Use Cypress alone or with Cel-Lite Magic daily for a gentle massage on the arms and legs.

The Benefits Of Lymphatic Dry Brushing And How To Do It The RIGHT WAY

Dr Yvonne Huang
Updated: Nov 12, 2021


The lymphatic system plays an important role in our immune guarding and protection.  We can promote better body detoxification by improving lymphatic circulation.  


The lymph system absorbs, transports, and recycles products from the interstitial space (tissue space).  The products in the lymph system include proteins, water, cells, fats, cell debris, white blood cells, cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, and many others only the lymph can handle.  Lymph vessels are mainly located at the skin and subcutaneous layer and can be found throughout the entire body. 


Dry brushing is one way to help promote lymphatic circulation. It helps stimulate the lymphatic system, and will provide support for proper function of the lymphatic system when done consistently over time.  


There are a couple of key things to remember when you start dry brushing. To start, you may not notice results right away. Dry brushing is the most effective when it’s done consistently. Also, a general rule of thumb if you’ve forgotten how to brush is to always stroke toward your heart. Although it’s a little more complicated when you look at lymph nodes and watershed pathways, when in doubt, brush toward your heart. 


If you want to start dry brushing right away but you haven’t gotten a brush or a roller yet, never fear. You can always use a hand towel or rag. 


Here is a video to show you how to dry brush your arms for lymphatic drainage

Hello April!  

Whether you are in the grips of the last of the winter storms blowing into Spring, or you have part of your garden already planted, April is the turning point month. 

The days are longer, the nights are shorter. Frog song fills the night air and trees are blooming everywhere. This is my second favourite month of the year - next to May- because of its optimism, sheer joy, and fragrant air. 

Take some time to wash your bedding and, if you can, hang it outside to dry. There is NOTHING like the smell
of line dried sheets as you crawl into bed. 

Make sure you are getting the most out of the month -- get outside, get some sunshine, meet up with friends and family,
plan an adventure, clean something, put away your winter clothes and find you summer ones. 

After all, Summer is coming and these glorious, mixed up days of April will keep you energized and excited for what comes next.

Chris

April's Spotlight-Lavender Lemon and Peppermint for Seasonal Allergies


If you love spring but Spring brings you runny, itchy eyes, stuffy noses, and congestion, but you are worried about the impact of long term use of antihistamines, nasal sprays and eye drops….well I have the solution for YOU!!

Last year I was able to give up ALL my OTC allergies medications for this simple, effective and natural alternative.

First, your best friend is going to be a roller ball of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils (but if you use low quality oils you get low quality results!) —I know. Sounds pretty Woo Woo Doesn’t it. That is exactly what I thought too.

But after steady u se through the worst of allergy season, I realized that this stuff really works. instant relief from all the uncomfortable symptoms is pollen……I was amazed.

And then I added a systemwide support for my immune system - Sulfurzyme — a natural organic sulfur that your body needs anyway but has also been shown to help with nasal congestion.

I had the best Spring ever using this method and you can as well!!!

I started out struggling to drink almost 4 litres of water and now I crave it. My body asks for water more than any other beverage and the feeling is amazing. AND while you would think I would get up more at night to pee, that has also stabilized and I am back to the same routine as before I started drinking so much more water. A friend told me we need 2.5 litres of water just to maintain healthy body function. I find my hunger is MUCH less now that I drink a more appropriate amount of water as well!! WIN-WIN!!!

12 At Home Spring Activities to Boost Your Mood

Spring is here and, with warm weather on the horizon, it’s finally time to crawl out of hibernation and embrace the sunshine. If you’ve been struggling with seasonal depression or anxiety this year, you may have trouble finding your smile.
 
Here are a few things you can do if you’re still experiencing the winter blues. 

1. Get Outside

When the rain subsides, get outside and explore nature. Soak up some mood-boosting vitamin D, and lower your blood pressure with the sights and sounds of nature. 

2. Plant a Garden 

You might also choose to flex your green thumb and plant a small garden in your backyard. Grow fruits, vegetables and herbs — and eat them all — to improve your diet and your mood. 

3. Chalk Up the Sidewalks

Who said chalk’s just for kids? Grab a bucket of sidewalk chalk and write encouraging messages on the sidewalk in front of your house. 

4. Move Your Body 

Moving your body in a way that feels good can also improve your mood. Get those endorphins flowing with aerobic exercise and keep in mind that a significant mood boost will require 10 to 30 minutes of exercise. 

5. Get Baking

Spring is the perfect time to try out new recipes and fill your home with the smell of baked goods. Try making and baking your own bread or whip up some cupcakes or fruit pies.

6. Host a Family Grill Party

Make everyone come to you by hosting a family grill party. Season the meat ahead of time and sear them when stomachs start grumbling. Just remember to oil the rack to keep your prime cuts from sticking to the grill. 

7. Get Lost In a Book

How long has it been since you’ve indulged in a romance novel or fairytale? Pick up a book and get lost in it for a few hours. Doing so will naturally allow you to forget your worries and decompress for a while.

8. Clean and Reorganize 

A messy living space may contribute to depression and lead to confusion, tension and an inability to focus. Therefore, it’s good practice to embrace spring cleaning and take some time to sanitize and reorganize your home. 

9. Meditate 

Cultivating mindfulness is another brilliant way to connect with the sensations in your body and thoughts in your head. Spend a few minutes in quiet meditation each day to explore your innermost being and find peace in a crazy world. 

10. Call a Friend

Sometimes all you need is a shoulder to lean on. Luckily, you can call a friend any time of year. Share your emotions and be honest if you’re struggling to maintain a positive outlook. Whether they offer advice or just a listening ear, you likely won’t regret picking up the phone. 

11. Journal 

If you don’t have any friends to call, write down your thoughts and feelings in a journal. Doing so will help you decompress and explore your emotions.

12. Plan a Vacation

Did COVID-19 throw a wrench in your travel plans last year? Embrace a sense of wonder and anticipation by planning your 2021 summer vacation this spring. Just thinking about beaches and palm trees is enough to make most people relax.

Prioritizing Yourself 

Many people resolve to invest in themselves at the beginning of the year. However, there’s no time like the present to reprioritize your mental and physical wellbeing. Boost your mood and enter this season with a smile on your face by taking care of yourself and doing whatever you need to do to be happy.

3 Tips for Getting the Body Ready for Spring

By Genevieve Cunningham

It’s probably a little hard to believe, but spring is right around the corner. It seems as though the holidays are barely gone, 
and yet, it still feels appropriate to begin looking forward to warm weather and blooming flowers. Most people love the spring. 
This season brings plenty of warmth, sunshine, and green. It also means that we can finally spend a little more time outdoors. Perhaps the only downside is that we often feel pressure to be fit and healthy
 looking. Luckily, you can start your journey to a spring-ready body right now. To get yourself prepared for the warm months ahead, take a look at these three tips that you can start right away.

Quit the Comfort Foods
Winter is a time for warm drinks and comfort foods galore. We eat a ton of calories to keep warm and because it fits in with the holiday season. If you're trying to get ready for spring, go ahead and cut out those foods. Clean up your diet by eating more fresh vegetables and fruits. Skip the heavy starches and heavy carbohydrates. The sooner you clean up your diet, the sooner you'll be moving toward a body that feels ready for springtime.

Drink More Water
It's easy to get dehydrated in the cooler months. There's something about the fact that it's winter that makes us think we don't need water, no matter what the weather feels like. If you want a jumpstart on spring, now is a great time to kick up your water drinking a notch or two. The more you drink right now, the better hydrated you’ll be when it begins to get warm. You’ll also be in the habit of drinking more, which may help ward off dehydration in the heat. Start with just a glass or two more each day, and keep going until you’re drinking at least eight glasses.

Get 15 More Minutes of Exercise
If you’re working toward a warm weather body, exercise will be an important part of the equation. But you don’t have to go nuts. Just start with an extra 15 minutes a day. If you’re not working out at all, 15 minutes will be a great starting out point. If you’re already working out, 15 minutes might help you take it up a notch and burn just a few more calories. And the best part of all is that 15 minutes feels doable. Work this into the routine now, and you’ll definitely be glad you did when that first swimsuit occasion arises.

Getting fit for the warm months is totally possible. And if it’s even easier if you start early. Use these tips to get you moving in the right direction, and you’ll love your springtime body by the time the days are long and sunny again.

And because all that new exercise can lead to some pretty sore muscles, check out Cool Azul as your natural, non-synthetic muscle support cream!

March's Spotlight-Pine




Pine essential oil is an underrated one for sure. This tree oil has an uplifting aroma that creates a breath of fresh air anywhere you use it, encourages feelings of positive energy, repels the influence of negative energy, and has some really unique and incredible health benefits!






JUST A DROP OF PINE…

* Has a fresh, woodsy aroma

* Wonderful for cleaning recipes and DIYs

* Supports muscle recovery and soothes tension

* Shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus Globulus; the action of both oils is enhanced when blended together

* Pairs well with other essential oils such as Peppermint, Lavender, and Eucalyptus

* A wonderful addition to wellness rollers

Pine needles have been used in herbal medicine and folklore for centuries. Pine needles contain Vitamin A and Vitamin C, which are essential for many bodily functions, including red blood cell production, hair and nail growth, and a healthy immune system. Pine needle tea was a common folk remedy for many things!

Traditionally, pine needles have been used as a way to soothe arthritic joints. In fact, some countries like Switzerland, even filled mattresses with pine needles with the belief that it would help sore joints while we slept. More recently, Science Daily (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/12/041220012423.htm) recently reported that pine needles and pine bark have been found to have both pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.

Pine needles were historically also used for overall wellness, likely due to their antioxidant effects (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17474862/).

AND while you would think I would get up more at night to pee, that has also stabilized and I am back to the same routine as before I started drinking so much more water. A friend told me we need 2.5 litres of water just to maintain healthy body function. I find my hunger is MUCH less now that I drink a more appropriate amount of water as well!! WIN-WIN!!!

The Month of Love - Welcome to February!

Already the first month of 2024 is gone and we are looking forward to the last of the coldest months of the year. 

It has been quite the introduction to 2024 with super cold temps across our country -- records being broken all over-- and then finally a bit of a thaw. And now, in some places, warmest temps on record for this time of year. I think we can be certain that our climate
is changing.

So how do we manage to stay healthy during these strangest of times? Well there is so much to do indoors
that can uplift our spirits, challenge our minds, and feed our bodies. 

This month's newsletter is all about thumbing our noses at brutually cold days, unexpected and sudden reversals and having fun anyway. 

Check out the list of hobbies, or ways to keep up your fitness level, and all the fabulous physical and mental health supports
from Young Living crammed into this one newsletter! Make sure you flag it so you can return easily and take up some of these

5 Ways to Take on the February Fitness Blahs

by Caila Ball, FitServe

It’s the shortest month of the year, yet February seems to drag by the slowest. The days are (still) short, the snow is (still) falling and beach weather is (still) months away. 
While the temptation to set serious exercise aside until the temperature rises above freezing is strong, resist it for the sake of long-term fitness goals. 
Brave the demotivating month, and take on the February Fitness Blahs with these 5 tips!

1.  Team Up Against the Blahs
February has a way of defeating even the most motivated fitness enthusiast, but it doesn’t stand a chance against a united front! Working out is better together
so gather a team of friends, or even a partner, and stay on track together. Sign up for a team activity, such as adult dodgeball or indoor soccer, or plan smaller group workouts in advance. Keep the workout team accountable by enforcing a 
“no cancellation policy” that requires anyone who cancels to throw cash into a fun fund to be spent on dinner at the end of the season.
2.  Try Something New
Finding it challenging to stick to your old routine? Make a new one! February is the perfect time to try a new fitness class, such as TRX, CrossFit, barre or Pilates reformer. Not only will stepping outside your comfort zone combat boredom, 
but trying new activities will prevent exercise plateau.
3.  Revisit New Year’s Resolutions
In retrospect, the seven-day-a-week/ 5-hour-a-day workout plan and raw vegetable-based diet plan was probably doomed from the beginning. Don’t let falling off New Year’s resolutions be an excuse for giving in until next January 1. Instead, set new, 
realistic goals with a few check-in points between now and Spring. Now that the holiday bills are (hopefully) paid off, consider investing in a fitness tracker, such as a Nike FuelBand, FitBit or Jawbone, to track these (new) New Year’s resolutions and 
keep you motivated to achieve your goals.
4.  Create Your Own Local Olympics
Not an Winter Olympics year but you can still try an Olympic-inspired outdoor sport or activity to energize yourself. Embrace the colder weather  -  try skiing, snowboarding, ice skating or curling to enjoy the great outdoors while improving cardio and conditioning.
5. Sign Up for a Spring Race
The cold weather has to end at some point, and when it does, there will be road races abound! Start training now for a 5K, 10k, half-marathon or mud run/obstacle race. A short term race goal will provide that extra motivation needed to put the cold 
front behind you and commit to your Winter cardio. 

And because all that new exercise can lead to some pretty sore muscles, check out Cool Azul as your natural, non-synthetic muscle support cream!

Tips for a Healthy Heart

by Dr. Charles C. Nydegger

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States. According to 
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 659,000 people in the United States
 die from heart disease each year—that's one in every four deaths. As well, people with 
poor cardiovascular health are at increased risk of complications and severe illness from COVID-19.  


During severe COVID infection, heart function may decrease. Heart changes in people who 
have recovered from the virus include irregular heart rate, inflammation of the heart muscle 
or the sac around the heart, elevated heart rate, and abnormal heart rhythms. Although it can’t
 be predicted which COVID patients will experience these changes, those with healthy 
cardiovascular systems are less likely to have severe symptoms. 

The good news is that heart disease is largely preventable. Devoting a little time every day to 
care for yourself can go a long way toward protecting your heart health. Studies show that 
self-care measures, such as moderate exercise, eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, 
and keeping doctor’s appointments, can help keep blood pressure in a healthy range and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Get moving. 
Just thirty minutes of physical activity each day can strengthen your cardiovascular health. Even during these colder months, you can still walk or run outdoors
 if you prepare for the cold by dressing in layers. Indoor workouts using a treadmill, mini trampoline, or stationary bike are another option. Or try an online yoga 
class to build flexibility, strength, and balance while calming your body and mind. 


Eat healthy
Consider switching out less healthy snacks for options like fruits and veggies, and experiment with heart-healthy recipes that are low in sodium and saturated fats. 
Add variety to your meals by using a fresh herb or spice as a salt substitute. 

Rest and recharge. 
Carve out a little time each day to relieve stress. Read a good book, enjoy a mug of herbal tea, meditate, or take a warm bath. Try to get at least seven hours of sleep 
each night—quality sleep decreases the work of your heart, as blood pressure and heart rate go down at night. Make your bedroom a calm, restful space, and resist 
the temptation to stay up late, watching TV or scrolling through social media feeds.

Stay connected. 
Connecting with others keeps our hearts emotionally healthy. Keeping connections strong helps prevent feeling isolated. Stay in touch with family and friends 
virtually or in person. Join a new club. Join a class. Get out and meet new people.

Take ownership of your heart health
Be mindful about your health and regularly monitor your blood pressure or blood sugar if needed. Keep an eye on your weight to make sure it stays within or moves
 toward a healthy range. Take your medications as prescribed and keep your medical appointments. Being aware of your health status is key to making positive change.

February's Spotlight-RutaVaLa and Sleep


This trio of Rue, Valerian, and Lavender essential oils will be your BFF when it comes to deep, restful sleep. With its earthy, grounding aroma, RutaVaLa can create a peaceful environment that sets the stage for rest. Plus, it comes as a pre-diluted roller, so using it could not be easier!







JUST A DROP OF RUTAVALA

* Has an earthy, grounding aroma

* Contains the powerful calming properties of linalool

* Creates a calm, grounded atmosphere

* Portable, easy-to-use roll-on allows for quick, easy application

* Prediluted for direct application to the skin

* Wonderful for supporting deep, restful sleep

RutaVaLa has a reputation for its “interesting” aroma, thanks to the Valerian. It may not be your favorite scent, yet how you feel when experiencing it is worth it! If you're not a big fan of the scent, simply apply to the bottom of your feet and cover with socks. You won't regret it after the great night's sleep you'll get!

27 Hobby Ideas: Budget-Friendly & Fun to Try in 2024  

 
  Article by Adeel Qayum     
Ever feel like the days in your life are scripted, repetitive, and monotonous? 
You wouldn’t if you had a hobby
Hobbies are the perfect antidote for the boredom blahs and are also good for your wellbeing. Research has shown engaging in leisure activities is associated with less stress, greater positive mood, and improved health.  
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend money to take up a hobby – especially when low-cost hobbies are plentiful. 

In this article, we’ll share 26 interesting hobby ideas that you can try on the cheap.
Read on, and you’re sure to find an activity or two that will help make your days fun, restful, and rejuvenating. We promise!
        
             

Benefits of Hobbies

There’s no shortage of reasons to pursue a hobby, but here are the main benefits:

Hobbies help us grow
Hobbies constantly push us to learn something new. Some hobbies even introduce techniques that we never thought we could apply. The result? Self-improvement that helps us grow in various ways. 

Hobbies encourage us to socialize
For those who find socialization near impossible, hobbies offer an opportunity to engage in a meaningful conversation. There’s something about connecting with a common interest that feels different (in a good way).   
                          
Hobbies enable us to recharge
 Starting a new hobby gives us a break from the daily grind. With never-ending work stress and personal issues, many of us need an outlet where we can relax, recharge and refresh. It turns out hobbies provide the perfect outlet for us to renew our spirit and get our mojo back.
                         benefits of hobbies                      
Hobbies allow us to beat boredom

Hobbies fill our time and reduce our chances of feeling bored or imprisoned. Whether we’re self-isolating or working from home, we can count on our hobbies to help us stay sane. And the good news is that there are plenty of home hobby ideas we can pursue, some of which are covered below.

Personal enrichment 

1. Blogging

Did you know that a lot of people blog just for fun? You can start a blog and express your thoughts on whatever topic you want. Feel like cracking a joke about the corporate world? Go right ahead. The best thing about hobby blogging is that there is no pressure to follow a certain format or schedule, so your brain feels brighter and happier. What’s more, you can practice blogging from the comfort of your home.

2. Reading

Had a rough week? Grab a book, curl up in bed, and see the world through someone else’s eyes. Studies show that just six minutes of reading can reduce stress levels by 60 percent. Seriously, reading is one of the best hobby ideas for relieving feelings of anxiety and fatigue. And it doesn’t cost much either. You can get old books for practically nothing at your local library. 

3. Learning a new language

Few hobbies are more helpful in today’s global world than learning a new language. App developers have made learning another language fun and engaging (example: DuoLingo), and some podcasts even record current events at a snail’s pace to help listeners practice their listening skills.

4. Journaling

You might have a bad taste in your mouth from when your middle school English teacher made you keep a journal, but it’s actually quite therapeutic. Bullet journaling and hand lettering has turned keeping a journal into a functional work of art, and there are all kinds of tutorials on how to journal the most effectively.
                         best hobby ideas 2020                      

5. Staying informed

If you want to stay informed but don’t want to get bogged down by just how much news there is, most big newspapers (i.e. The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the Washington Post)  have free daily briefs that they email right to your inbox. These shortened blurbs of the day’s news give you a glimpse of the world without all the extra.

6. Gardening

Gardening is the perfect hobby to enjoy more fresh air and to grow your own produce. All it takes to start is an inexpensive pack of seeds, fertilizer, soil, and basic gardening tools. If you’re new to gardening, growing some herbs or even just flowers is a pretty good starting point. 

7. Hiking

Are you a nature lover? Then you’ll certainly enjoy hiking. It’s a fun activity that allows you to explore areas you can’t go to by car. Plus, it’s super easy to start. Gather a few friends and explore your local forest, a nearby hill or lake. Or download AllTrails for more exotic hiking locations.
                         cheap hobby ideas                      

8. Camping

Whether you want to try car camping, primitive camping, or hammocking (or a little of all three), the camping support world is huge. No longer is camping just for the “outdoorsy folks,” now it’s within anyone’s reach. Youtube channels like “Homemade Wanderlust” and “Darwin onthetrail” are perfect for aspiring backpackers who aren’t quite sure where to start.

9. Nature identification

One cool hobby that’s fascinating nature enthusiasts everywhere is plant and animal identification. PictureThis – Plant Identifier is one of the best apps out there for figuring out that pretty vine growing along your fence line, but it’s also great if you want to get into foraging (one of several trending hobby ideas that are blowing up Instagram).

Embrace Your Inner Artist

10. Playing an instrument

Playing an instrument is one of the best hobby examples because it is relaxing and can bring you and others joy. Masterclass has courses for singing, ukulele, guitar, production, mixing, drumming, violin, and composing from people like Itzhak Perlman, Danny Elfman, and Christina Aguilera, but you can always make up your own music like internet sensation Abby the Spoon Lady.

11. Nail art

Next on our list of hobby ideas is nail art. This can be as cheap or expensive as you want it to be, and the outcomes are as limitless as your imagination. Skillshare offers online nail art classes, and Etsy is a website that lets you upload your own designs, and you can earn a commission whenever someone uses it for any kind of textile.

12. Origami 

If you’ve never heard of Origami, it’s the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. You can make animals, plants, and other nature-inspired folds taking help YouTube and How to Make Origami app. Origami is both creative and fun, and it also helps with hand-eye coordination.
                         Origami inexpensive pastime                      

13. Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is typically seen as one of the more expensive hobby ideas, but it’s definitely doable on a budget. You can get started with ribbons and material scraps lying around the house. When it comes to stickers, you can save from owning a printer. And the secret to cheap scrapbook accessories is the clearance racks in the arts and crafts section of retail chains. 

Exercise (at home or outside)

14. Running 

Running or jogging are fantastic hobby ideas for both the mind and body, and all it requires is a good pair of running shoes. Whether you’re using a treadmill or hitting the park trail, plug into an audiobook or podcast to keep your mind occupied. Want to try competitive running but don’t want all the crowds? Look online for virtual running competitions that let you compete wherever you are. 

15. Dancing 

Learning how to dance – either alone or with a partner – no longer requires you to go to a dance studio to learn. Nowadays, dance studios are taking their classes online and offer courses in breakdancing, ballroom, hip hop, jazz, tap, and much more. 

16. Yoga

Yoga is one of several at home hobby ideas because you can do it in your bedroom, home office, or the living room. Feeling like a little fresh air? Head out to the balcony or your backyard. For those who want to tone some of their yoga skills, the Youtube channel Yoga with Adriene is exceptional.

17. Rollerblading

Along with the fanny pack, this 1990s staple is also weaving its way back into popularity. Rollerblading or roller skating (if you need a little extra stability) are other fun hobby ideas for those with excellent balance and strong ankles (of course, a neon visor over a tight perm is also welcome).

18. Slacklining

Slacklining is a cheap hobby because all you need to practice your balance and tone your leg and ab muscles is a couple of trees and about 50 feet of one-inch flat polyester webbing.

Give the Oven Some Lovin’

19. Baking

Baking shows seem to be a dime a dozen these days, which just goes to show you that anyone can learn to bake. Start small with baking staples like biscuits, cookies, and pie (Mel’s Kitchen Café and Sally’s Baking Addiction are fantastic websites to learn these skills) and gradually expand your repertoire to artisan breadmaking and pastries. You’ll never want to eat store-bought baked goods again!

20. Cooking

Cooking can seem a little daunting at first, but with countless food bloggers trying to carve out their place on the internet, you’re sure to find someone who speaks to you. If you’re a visual learner, check out tasty.co for step-by-step video tutorials for both simple and fancy cooking.  

21. Cheesemaking and home brewing

Cheesemaking and home brewing are two interesting hobbies that put the “fun” in “functional.” These aren’t the cheapest hobbies to start up, but once you have the necessary equipment, it’s pretty inexpensive to keep up. 

Craft Your Heart Out

22. Handicraft

Handicraft (knitting, embroidery, cross-stitch, quilting, clothing construction, and crochet) is no longer just a hobby for your grandma. In fact, handicraft is making crazy waves right now between young people upcycling thrift store finds, irreverent cross-stitching, and DIY tutorials that anyone can follow.

23. Woodburning

Basic woodburning kits cost about as much as a fast food dinner date, but they can bring hours of entertainment and produce countless gifts for your loved ones. From coasters to wall hangings, woodburning can add a little rustic charm to your life.
                         woodburning                      
Financial Fun

24. Budgeting

Whoever said budgeting can’t be fun wasn’t doing it right! There are countless money management blogs and podcasts out there offering advice, and you can even install digital envelope apps on your phone, so you don’t overspend. 

25. Short-Term Investing

Short-term investing is one of several hobby ideas where you can make a little cash without tying up your money for a long time. Investing in mutual funds and Certificates of Deposit require just a couple hundred bucks to begin, but can grow quite a bit over time. If you want a little more risk, day trading may be right for you, but start small and take things slow while you learn how to do it the right way.

26. Thrift Shopping

Few things are more thrilling than finding a screaming deal on that perfectly unique outfit at the thrift store. By cleaning up and reselling thrift store items, you can even make a good chunk of change.

Conclusion

Learning a new hobby doesn’t have to take a ton of time, energy, or money, but doing so can yield some pretty impressive results. 

By devoting just a few minutes a day and setting a goal to learn something new, you may find yourself becoming proficient in something you never dreamed possible.

The hobby ideas list above is just a starting point to get your self-improvement juices flowing. Soon enough, you’ll not only have another skill in your toolbelt, but the mental and physical health benefits will leave you healthier, happier, and feeling more fulfilled.

Well that is our newsletter for December! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.

As always if you have any comments or concerns pop me an email at hello@newwellnessperspective.com 




Welcome 2024! Welcome January! Welcome New Beginnings!

New beginnings -- no matter what you think of starting the new year, it is definitely a time when our thoughts turn to new beginnings -- whether you are on a wellness journey, just thinking about one, or have no idea what you would do to improve your well-being, January will stir up feelings of needing to do something. 

And yet we know that "New Year's Resolutions" likely fail before the first light of February.  So what is a person to do?

Well, ask yourself why you want to start something new. Investigate the thoughts you have around that new thing -- what are you 
hoping to accomplish? What is your ultimate desire if you achieved it? 

Then ask yourself what kinds of things could stand in your way of achieving that goal....and solve for those. 

Then start SLOW -- baby steps -- and tell yourself you can fail and get back up. This isn't an all or nothing event. This isn't 
a magical happening. This isn't one and done. This is a LIFE change.

Plan for the long haul. Celebrate the victories, investigate the failures. BUT KEEP GOING.

The single best advice you can get is to NOT STOP. It won't be perfect, it likely won't even be pretty, but it will be doable.

Now get started!


Chris

Let's Have Some New Year Fun!

Top Ten Activities for Fun Things to do in January

Winter can be long and harsh, but you can still find a ton of fun and energizing things to do. Here are ten ideas for Fun things to do in January!

1. Find a New Place to Walk

The best thing to do to feel better on dark January days is to try to get out at least once a day for a walk. January is often the focus for trying new things, so why not do a spot of research and try some different walks near you?


2. Discover New Recipes

There are many ways that you can make January a foodie month for you and your family. Here are three for starters:
  • Keep cosy and make some winter-warming food. 
  • Why not try at least three new recipes in January? Y
  • It could be the time for you and your child to turn your hand to baking. Time to break out the cookbooks or google searches and choose a project together

3. Change What You Eat

This could mean everyone pulling together to maybe cut back on the takeaways and eating less chocolate after the Christmas festivities.

We know that going vegan in January has become one of the fastest-growing initiatives of the year. Or, you may simply decide that you’re going to cut back on meat or dairy for an extra meal a week. 


4. Have a Film Night

Your child will certainly embrace the idea of a film night.  Enjoyable for all the family, this is an easy way to enjoy a wonderful family night in.
And You can’t have a film night without snacks. So get set up to make individual flavoured popcorn bowls, google some great healthy dip ideas for raw veggies....there are tons of good ideas online. 

5. Have a Games Night

Board game nights are really making a comeback!!! Assemble some games together and you’re ready to go. Board games are always a winner evening for laughing and chatting
and relaxing.

6. Try a New Form of Exercise

January is the time when gym memberships go through the roof, but there are cheaper ways to exercise and ones that are more family friendly, too.
Just going out for a walk burns calories and makes the whole family feel great. You could also go for a gentle - or energetic - family run together.
If you have snow, build snowmen and castles. If you don't have snow, go on a scavenger hunt that includes fun exercise stops along the way. 
If you looking to try something new, have a look at this checklist of activities your family can try together. 


7. Visit a Free Museum

It’s cold, dark and rainy but you everyone in the family needs to get out and do something - so have you thought about visiting a free museum? Do a little research around where you live and see what you can discover.
It’s a great way for you and your child to find out about the culture and history of their local area


8. Embrace the Winter Weather

One of the ways to feel more positive about winter is to embrace the cold weather. In Norway, they call this ‘friluftsliv’ which is all about having a positive mindset to winter and the outdoors.
So, wrap up warm and encourage your child to experience the outdoors and the world around them. How about taking some warm food on your walk with you and having a winter picnic?
And don’t forget to make some warming hot chocolate when you all come back. 

9. Have Fun in the Snow

Kids love snow, so if we get some snowfall, build a snowman, make snow sculptures, be a snow angel, go sledging - the list goes on.

10. Plant Some Seeds

It’s great to live in the moment, but it’s also good to plan ahead. Getting your little one engaged ( or just you if you don't have kiddos) in planting some seeds is a fun thing to do this January and is another way to have fun outside. 
Plus, they’ll love to see the seeds grow and develop through the months to come.  
Check out some of the major seed catalogue companies for ideas of what should be planted early to get a head start on the season.

More Ideas for Fun Things to Do in January

Still looking for inspiration? Here are some more super suggestions:

  • Feed the birds or even build your own bird feeder.
  • Find a new hobby. Exercise, a language or volunteering, to name but a few.
  • Help a neighbour with their shopping.
  • Keep a family diary. Once a week, everyone could write three things that they’ve enjoyed. Lovely to look back on in the months to come.
  • Make a different cake for each week of January.
  • Watch a box set - great if you’ve got older kids.
  • Ask your little one to find some books they’ve not read for a while and have a cosy reading afternoon together.
  • Have a tidy out - it might not sound like fun, but it certainly feels great afterwards and it can be very engrossing.
And if you are out and about in the cold, you might want to pamper your lips with these.....

The January Blues are REAL!


 For many of us, once the festive holiday season is over the January blues start to set in. But there are ways you can fight back and feel better. Dee Marques shares seven ideas on beating those blues – from holiday planning and embracing winter activities to finding new hobbies. 

   
   The January blues and new year period can be particularly tough on our mental health and lead to feelings of depression. After the excesses typical of the festive season, going back to the usual daily routine can be overwhelming. Personally, I've always thought about this time of the year as an expanded version of the Monday blues – something many of us go through on a weekly basis!
   
   Furthermore, during the new year, most of us also tend to take stock of our lives. This sometimes means realising that things haven't turned out as we expected or hoped. Perhaps we look back on past resolutions to find out that we weren’t able to maintain them, or we’re saddened by memories of people who are no longer with us. We've all had a few couple of years due to the pandemic, and this challenging period is likely to continue, perhaps intensifying the January blues.
   
   
   
   Also, a season of treats, big dinners and high alcohol consumption usually means we end up with a few extra inches or pounds and a negative body image. And having friends or relatives visiting can be lovely but it can also drain our energy and lead to confrontations or fall-outs. Added to that, intense gift-buying sessions may have left us with an empty bank account.
   
   In fact, research shows that the January blues and new year depression are a very real thing. Suicides peak on New Year’s day, considered the deadliest 24 hours of the year. Also, there are links between low morale at this time of the year and an increased number of extramarital affairs. In fact, 65 per cent of all relationship break-ups happen in January.  
   
   New year depression is so prevalent that it's led to the term Blue Monday being coined. This refers to the most depressing day of the year, and it’s calculated using a formula that takes into account three things: the weather, motivation levels and debt.
   

   7 strategies to beating the January blues

   In 2024, Blue Monday will fall on 15th January. So, in preparation for this dreaded day and the month beyond, here are seven scientifically-proven ideas on how to beat those January blues.
   

   1. Embrace winter activities

   Physical activity is a great mood booster that is proven to help fend off depression. And although exercising is probably the last thing you feel like doing at this time of the year, the benefits are so worth it that once you get going, you’ll want to keep going!

   Indeed, recent studies claim that both short sessions of high-intensity exercise or longer sessions of low-intensity activity are effective at keeping the blues at bay. And the season itself offers opportunities to try something new, whether it's snow sports like skiing, going for countryside or coastal walk in nature, or ice skating. The strong-willed among you may even want to consider a dose of winter wild swimming!
   
   But there are still options if you don’t feel like braving the cold: saunas, steam baths and hot yoga are all excellent for well-being and beating the misery January brings.
   

   2. Take a trip 

   Going on a trip is scientifically-proven to improve your mood and help you beat the January blues and new year depression, especially if it’s somewhere sunny. That's because our bodies create Vitamin D from sunlight, and this vitamin is directly linked to our mood. You don’t need to go on a long trip – even a weekend getaway can make a difference.
   
   “Going on a trip is scientifically-proven to improve your mood and help you beat the January blues, especially if it's somewhere sunny.”
   
   But what if your finances are tight after the holiday season? Fear not. Interestingly, the simple fact of just planning or researching a trip can improve your mood. Studies have found that pre-trip happiness acts as a mood booster, as it fills us with anticipation of good things to come. So, even though many of us may not be able to travel to sunny climes to avoid the January blues right now, we can at least get on the net and start researching where we want to go next.
      

   

   3. Skip resolutions and take up a new hobby

   New Year resolutions can be a double-edged sword: on the one hand, they can motivate us, but since only 8 per cent of people follow them through, failing to achieve them can make us feel inadequate. To take the pressure off and still work towards something meaningful, why not take up a new hobby for one month only? The idea is to find something that inspires you and gets you through January. If you find yourself really enjoying it, you can then continue it for the rest of the year.
   

   4. Warm up

   Never underestimate the healing effect of warmth, especially during the coldest months of the year. In fact, our bodies are meant to be comforted by warmth – this is why we seek the sun or find so much pleasure in our favourite cup of tea, coffee or chocolate.
   winter-blues-january-depression-new-year.jpgA hot choc can help beat the January blues shutterstock/igorstevanovic
   
   If you’re feeling down with the January blues, take your time to enjoy a long soak in a warm, relaxing bath (even better if you add some warming essential oils like rosemary, ginger or cardamom). According to researchers, even just touching something warm can give us a little happiness boost.
   

   5. Find something fun to do with friends

   January’s bleak weather and lack of funds can make it very tempting to stay home and veg out all day. But instead of giving in to staying in, it’s worth finding ways of staying active and sociable. For example, collective plans or resolutions can help you stay accountable and motivated, making you more resilient to New Year depression.
   
   “Why not take up a new hobby for one month only? The idea is to find something that inspires you and gets you through the January blues. If you find yourself really enjoy it you can carry it on for the rest of the year.”
   
   And there are tons of activities you can enjoy with others without spending a lot of money. For example, you could gather at a friend’s home and learn a new dance using YouTube videos, organize healthy and budget-friendly cooking competitions, have a wardrobe clear out and swap session, or even have a go at geocaching.
   

   6. Eat well

   When it comes to our diet, Christmas and New Year are usually synonymous with excess. Some of us love to indulge in mince pies, Christmas pudding, and other high-carb and high-sugar treats, but overeating these foods can lead to low energy and a dark mood typical of the January blues. To counter this, include nourishing good mood foods in every meal, especially those rich in omega-3 oils, which according to some studies can help fight pessimism and sadness.

   
7. Check for SAD

   If you're really struggling to keep a positive mindset or if your health is negatively affected every time January arrives, you may be suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). This condition affects 10 million people in the US and 1 in 3 in the UK. The symptoms include irritability, tearfulness, low self-esteem, high stress, lethargy, and a loss of interest in things that we’d normally find enjoyable.
   
   
   
   It’s important to speak to your doctor if you suspect you may have SAD, since in some people this can evolve into depressive symptoms. You should know that treatment is available and you don’t need to let this type of January blues or depression take over. Your doctor may recommend Vitamin D supplements, using a light therapy box, going for walks whenever there’s sunlight, or in some cases, medication.
   

   Conclusion: you can beat the January blues

   This winter, don’t let the January blues spoil your mood and well-being. Use the suggestions above to prevent the symptoms from developing, and if you find yourself struggling despite your best efforts, seek help. You’re not alone and every step you take to beat the winter blues will be a worthwhile investment in your overall physical and mental health. ●

How to Build a New Habit: This is Your Strategy Guide

                                   
written by James Clear
                                                                                                          
       
According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. Understanding how to build new habits (and how your current ones work) is essential for making progress in your health, your happiness, and your life in general.

But there can be a lot of information out there and most of it isn’t very simple to digest. To solve this problem and break things down in a very simple manner, I have created this strategy guide for how to build new habits that actually stick.
Even more detailed information is available in my book, Atomic Habits.

1. Start with an incredibly small habit.

Make it so easy you can’t say no.
—Leo Babauta
start small habits (build new habits)

When most people struggle to build new habits, they say something like, “I just need more motivation.” Or, “I wish I had as much willpower as you do.”

This is the wrong approach. Research shows that willpower is like a muscle. It gets fatigued as you use it throughout the day. Another way to think of this is that your motivation ebbs and flows. It rises and falls. Stanford professor BJ Fogg calls this the “motivation wave.”

Solve this problem by picking a new habit that is easy enough that you don’t need motivation to do it. Rather than starting with 50 pushups per day, start with 5 pushups per day. Rather than trying to meditate for 10 minutes per day, start by meditating for one minute per day. Make it easy enough that you can get it done without motivation.

2. Increase your habit in very small ways.

Success is a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.
—Jim Rohn
tiny gains with habits (build new habits)

One percent improvements add up surprisingly fast. So do one percent declines.

Rather than trying to do something amazing from the beginning, start small and gradually improve. Along the way, your willpower and motivation will increase, which will make it easier to stick to your habit for good.


3. As you build up, break habits into chunks.

break down your habits (build new habits)

If you continue adding one percent each day, then you’ll find yourself increasing very quickly within two or three months. It is important to keep each habit reasonable, so that you can maintain momentum and make the behavior as easy as possible to accomplish.

Building up to 20 minutes of meditation? Split it into two segments of 10 minutes at first.

Trying to do 50 pushups per day? Five sets of 10 might be much easier as you make your way there.


4. When you slip, get back on track quickly.

The best way to improve your self-control is to see how and why you lose control.
—Kelly McGonigal
never miss habits twice (build new habits)

Top performers make mistakes, commit errors, and get off track just like everyone else. The difference is that they get back on track as quickly as possible.

Research has shown that missing your habit once, no matter when it occurs, has no measurable impact on your long-term progress. Rather than trying to be perfect, abandon your all-or-nothing mentality.

You shouldn’t expect to fail, but you should plan for failure. Take some time to consider what will prevent your habit from happening. What are some things that are likely to get in your way? What are some daily emergencies that are likely to pull you off course? How can you plan to work around these issues? Or, at least, how you can bounce back quickly from them and get back on track?

You just need to be consistent, not perfect. Focus on building the identity of someone who never misses a habit twice.


5. Be patient. Stick to a pace you can sustain.

sustain your habits (build new habits)

Learning to be patient is perhaps the most critical skill of all. You can make incredible progress if you are consistent and patient.

If you are adding weight in the gym, you should probably go slower than you think. If you are adding daily sales calls to your business strategy, you should probably start with fewer than you expect to handle. Patience is everything. Do things you can sustain.

New habits should feel easy, especially in the beginning. If you stay consistent and continue increasing your habit it will get hard enough, fast enough. It always does.
If you want more practical ideas for how to build new habits (and break bad ones), check out my book Atomic Habits, which will show you how small changes in habits can lead to remarkable results.

Christmas should be a time of peace.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The sound of jingling bells can be heard everywhere, everyone is in good cheer, and the world is lit up with twinkling lights. Or is it the most stressful time of the year? There’s so much to do and so much to buy, that the spirit of Christmas is often lost in the fray.
If you want to have a peaceful Christmas this year, you’ll find ten ways to achieve this below.
1. Set the Goal of Having a Peaceful Christmas. 
Instead of telling yourself that Christmas is a stressful and chaotic time of year, and there’s nothing that you can do about it, set the goal of having a peaceful Christmas. Once you’ve set your goal, plan how you’re going to make it happen. Then, stick to your plan, regardless of the Christmas chaos that may surround you. This will help you to stay focused on the peace and joy of Christmas, instead of muddying up your Christmas with stress and anxiety.

2. Set Holiday Limits. 
“Overwhelming” is a word that often describes the Holiday season. There are tons of gifts to buy, parties to go to, decorations to put up, food to prepare, and so on and so forth. At the same time, “overwhelm” is the opposite of peace.
The way to make Christmas less overwhelming is to set limits. Do the following:
  • Set a limit on the amount of gifts you’re going to buy. You can also set a limit on the amount of money you’re going to spend on those gifts.
  • Set a limit on the number of Christmas parties you’re going to attend.
  • Set a limit on the amount of Christmas activities you’re going to participate in. You don’t have to do “Elf on the Shelf”, and go Christmas caroling, and bake a gingerbread house, and put on a Christmas play, and have a Christmas village, and be the house on the street with the most Christmas lights, and so and so forth. Choose your favorite Christmas activities and just stick to those.
  • Set a limit on the amount of food you’re going to cook (and eat).
You get the picture. This time of year, limits are you friend.
3. Recite a Christmas Mantra. 
A mantra is a word or phrase that helps to interrupt a negative train of thought and focus the mind on something positive. When you find yourself thinking, “I’ll never find time to do everything I have to do before the 25th”, or “I just wish the holidays were over”, switch your focus by repeating your Christmas mantra.
Choose a mantra that reminds you of the joy of the season. Here are some ideas:
  • “I hold Christmas in my heart.”
  • “Joy to the world, the Lord is come.”
  • “Peace on earth and goodwill toward all people.”
4. Add Some Fun to Your Christmas Chores. 
Let’s face it, Christmas involves a lot of chores that most of us would rather not have to do. Here are some examples:
  • Driving to the mall in horrible traffic.
  • Deep cleaning the house in preparation for the family Christmas dinner you’ll be hosting.
  • Wrapping presents.
Ask yourself how you can make these things fun. After all, it’s easier to feel peaceful when you’re enjoying yourself. Here are some ideas:
  • If you’re stuck in Christmas traffic with your kids in the car whining that they’re bored, start a “Christmas Scavenger Hunt”. No one will care that you’re moving at a snail’s pace once they’re each trying to be the first to find a snowman, Rudolph, a nativity scene, or a candy cane.
  • Cleaning can be made fun–or at least a little less awful–by playing Christmas music and singing along loudly. In addition, clean in fifteen minute bursts, followed by fifteen minutes of watching Christmas specials.
  • Turn wrapping presents into a fun social event by doing it with a group of friends. Have some easy to prepare snacks available, like a cheese board, grapes, and some cookies (store-bought cookies are fine). And, of course, eggnog spiked with rum can turn almost anything into a joyful occasion. 🙂
5. Set Aside Five Minutes Each Morning. 
Set aside five minutes each morning to sit quietly with a cup of Christmas blend coffee and just breath. Use this time to ground yourself and prepare for the day that is to come. Beginning each day peacefully will help you to carry that peace with you for the rest of the day.
6. Create a Christmas Gratitude List. 
Christmas can remind us of what we don’t have.
If there’s someone who’s no longer in your life, it may make you sad to think of spending Christmas without them. Also, the season has turned very commercial, and you may find yourself wishing you had more money to spend on gifts and lavish decorations.
However, thinking of what you don’t have is a peace-sucking, pointless activity that you should refrain from at all costs. Instead, count your blessings by creating a Christmas gratitude list. Here are some ideas:
  • List the Christmas activities you’ll be participating in that you’re really looking forward to.
  • List the people you’ll be spending time with.
  • List the sights, sounds, and tastes of Christmas that you love.
Each time your mind wanders and you start to think of what you’ll be lacking this Christmas, refer to your gratitude list and refocus your mind on all of the wonderful things that Christmas brings.
7. Schedule Your Christmas Activities. 
Once you’ve carefully selected the Christmas activities that you’ll be participating in this year, schedule them. There’s nothing that will rob you of your peace of mind faster than trying to find a turkey on the 23rd of December, or running around a store on the 24th desperately trying to finish shopping for presents.
In addition, make sure that your schedule isn’t jam-packed. If it is, refer back to the second point in this blog post (setting limits).
8. Choose Your Reactions 
This Christmas Season. It doesn’t matter how well prepared you are to have a peaceful Christmas, you’re going to come across rude and boorish people who will make it very hard to remain peaceful. Plus, something with almost certainly go wrong.
However, know that nothing can interfere with your peaceful Christmas if you don’t let it. Look at the following:
  • If someone pushes ahead of you in line, remind yourself that the problem is their lack of manners. Their reprehensible behavior has nothing to do with you. In other words, don’t take things personally.
  • If you hear of a Christmas party that a friend is throwing which you weren’t invited to, be grateful that you have one less event to attend. That is, choose to interpret everything in the most favorable light you can.
  • If you discover that your Christmas lights no longer work, tell yourself that you would have preferred that they work, but your happiness and peace of mind are not dependent on whether or not the Christmas lights light up.
You can’t control what happens around you, but you can control how you react to it. Choose to react to your environment in a way that is conducive to having a peaceful Christmas.
9. Avoid Situations that You Know Will Rob You of Your Peace of Mind. 
There are two types of difficult situations: those that can’t be avoided, and those that can. For the former, refer to the previous point. For the latter, follow a strategy of avoidance.
Here are some examples:
  • If there’s a relative who belittles your accomplishments every Christmas, don’t invite them to your Christmas dinner. This may seem harsh, but there’s no reason to put up with toxic people, especially at Christmas.
  • If there’s a store in which the shopping attendants are routinely rude, avoid that shop at all costs.
  • If there’s a time of day in which the shops are packed, shop at a different time.
If you plan well, many difficult situations can be avoided. After all, why put yourself in situations that will put your resolve of having a peaceful Christmas at risk?
10. Simplify Your Christmas. 
There may be one or two things you’ll want to go all out for this Christmas. For everything else, embrace simplicity. Look at the following:
  • Do you lack the time to wrap presents? Get some nice gift bags and just use those.
  • Are you racking your brain trying to come up with gift ideas? Just call up the people on your gift-giving list and ask them what they want.
  • Is the turkey recipe you were planning to follow incredibly elaborate? Choose a simpler recipe.
Whenever you start to feel stressed this holiday season, just ask yourself: “How can I simplify this?” After all, peace and simplicity go hand-in-hand.
This year, set the goal of having a Christmas filled with peace. Use the ten points above as inspiration for achieving this goal. Live your best life by having a peaceful Christmas.

Kids Love These Christmas Games!


Quiet games come in handy when you’re in a waiting room, need to make a phone call or just need an hour of quiet time in your home. 
You can genuinely enjoy some quiet and give your kids some fun ideas when you play these Christmas games!
They’re a favorite of our family and friends and I know you’ll love them too!

10 Quiet Christmas Games Kids Love

Christmas telephone. 

Play the classic telephone game with a twist! Kids can only create messages that are Christmas themed. 
For instance, they can say “Jingle all the way while dashing through the snow!”.

Christmas Plush Toss.

Choose a Christmas plush for this game. 
You can always keep one in your purse or diaper bag.
Have the kids sit in a circle and give the Christmas-themed stuffed animal (think reindeer, snowmen, or a Christmas Mickey!) to the quietest person. 
That person then gently tosses the stuffed animal to someone in the circle.
Whoever drops the stuffed animal, talks or throws the stuffed animal out of the circle is out.

Christmas Statues. 

This simple game always brings a smile!
Quietly whisper to the kids what kind of holiday statue you want them to make.
Some ideas are a snowman, a Christmas tree, a reindeer or even a gingerbread man!
At the count of three, the kids have to freeze into their Christmas statue and then you pick the best statue. 
That person then whispers to the kids what kind of statue to make next, and so the game repeats.
Remember, statues don’t move or talk!

Frozen themed Uno. 

Kids love seeing Ana and Elsa on this card game cover! 

Every card is decorated in a favorite character from Frozen. 
To keep this game quiet, kids have to raise one finger instead of saying “Uno!” 
It’s hard not to giggle on this one!

More Christmas Games for Kids


Christmas Tic Tac Toe.

Grab all the details here for this incredible creative game!

Red and Green

Place Red and Green Skittles or M and M’s in a clean, see-through container.
Split up players into teams.
Each team player needs to close his eyes and pick one piece of candy from the jar….no talking!
Assign 5 points for each red-colored candy and -5 for every green colored candy. See which team has the highest points!

Silent Christmas Carol Charades

Act out famous Christmas carols. Instead of kids yelling and guessing, they have to write down their guesses on a piece of paper.  
Correct guesses win!

Marshmallow towers

Pick up a few bags of large marshmallows and place a coaster in the center of a table. 
Each child takes a turn placing a marshmallow on the coaster until they have to start stacking them. 
It’s like Jenga: When the stack of marshmallows falls, that person loses.

Christmas Artist

This is great for kids because they love to draw!

Stocking Guessing Game

Fill a stocking with small toys and Christmas items, for example, a candy cane, bell, small car, or pinecone. 
Let the kids feel the stocking and try to identify the contents. 
The child with the most correct guesses is the winner.


December's Featured Recipe


Holiday Home Challenge



We're going to bring the warmth, peace, and focus of this beautiful season back with some simple tips to be present, support your emotional health, and prepare in advance for your events and hosting with the Holiday Home Challenge!


Step 1: We're going to grab the most glorious smelling blend guaranteed to instantly change your mood and atmosphere.
Meet Christmas Spirit

Why Christmas Spirit? Christmas Spirit is a sweet, spicy blend of essential oils that taps into the happiness, joy, and security associated with the holiday season. Not only does it smell like perfection without attacking your respiratory system like synthetic scents, but it is also an effective way to work through the many emotions and memories that crop up during this time of year. We're going to use it to prep our bodies and our homes for the season!

Step 2: We're going to slow down and just breathe. Each day as we start our diffuser, it's also our reminder to take a moment and savor the season.

Step 3: We're going to have FUN with some holiday prep tasks each day in our Facebook group! We're going to clean, create, bake, and share, and you will not want to miss all of the inspiration!

Each day you will do the following three things:

• Diffuse Christmas Spirit Oil every day in your home.
• Take at least one full minute to slow down and breathe it in.
• Do one project each day to prep for holiday hosting.

The last thing you need when you're fatigued are complicated steps or having to remember a bunch of things. That's why you do it with us.

You grab your supplies, join us in our Facebook group, and every day we remind you what to do and why. 

All you do is use the oils, read, and maybe even win a giveaway!

This holiday season is already flying by, isn't it?? I'm really looking forward to taking some time this month to slow down and reflect, but I also know this time of year is also when we often need to ramp up our wellness routines.

Well Young Living wants to help us celebrate wellness with December's Gift With Purchase. Oh, and peep the 300PV freebie we keep our fingers crossed for all year long and YL DELIVERED!

Now let's take a look at all the great products you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order this month!!

 Cedarwood 15ml (100 PV Loyalty Exclusive)
Great sleep is crucial in supporting our immune systems and it's literally just a few drops away! This is a go-to diffuser option for getting good rest and I love pairing it with Lavender. If you're not a huge fan of Cedarwood's aroma, apply it to the bottom of your feet before bed to get the relaxing, long lasting sleep benefits. Did you know it's also great for skin and hair? Add a few drops to your shampoo or face lotion for an extra boost! Here are some other great tips:
• To escape the cold, apply Cedarwood essential oil to your skin for a soothing sensation or massage it into your scalp as needed for an enjoyable experience.
• Create a tranquil environment through diffusing and support the brain with this sesquiterpene-rich oil. 

 Longevity Vitality 5ml (190 PV)
When Longevity Softgels were out of stock a while back, many of us just made our own with Longevity Vitality because, yep, it's the same blend! If you're not a fan of extra capsules, you can also enjoy it in a tea or in a more savory, veggie-heavy smoothie. No matter what, you need to make sure you're taking this daily in my opinion! It's an immune powerhouse and great for overall vitality. Check out these other suggestions:
• Warm up any tea this winter with a few drops of Longevity Vitality essential oil blend.
• Use this in combination with Thyme, Orange, Clove, and Frankincense essential oils during the winter months to help support normal immune.

 Thieves 15ml (190 PV Loyalty Exclusive)
Thieves and the winter months just go together like peanut butter and jelly, right? Keep you and your family feeling well by diffusing Thieves, making Thieves tea, and/or taking it in veggie capsules! And a free 15ml bottle this time of year when it's in all the things?? Yes please! Take a look at what YL has to say about this beautiful oil:
• During the cold winter months, as you snuggle by the fireplace, dilute and apply Thieves essential oil blend with its bold, invigorating yet soothing aroma to the bottoms of your feet.
• The first essential oil blend to be scientifically evaluated in a university research laboratory, Thieves has a rich, spicy aroma, and is a key ingredient in our Thieves Home Collection – your go to for an invigorating clean and healthy home.

 Copaiba 15ml (250 PV)
Since our skin is the largest organ, we definitely can't forget to give it a little extra love during these dry, cold months. Copaiba is the perfect oil to add into our skincare routines for that much-needed boost. On top of that, Copaiba is also a Vitality oil which means you can add it to your Thieves capsules to support healthy skin from within. It is awesome for reducing inflammation and supporting intestinal + gut health plus it can be a lifesaver when combined with Clove for soothing sore teeth + gums! Here are a few other great tips on how you can incorporate Copaiba into your oil routine:
• Copaiba is one of the key ingredients in Stress Away, so it's a wonderful option to apply to reduce overwhelming feelings.
• This calming, earthy aroma creates a relaxing environment when diffused.

 FRANKINCENSE 15ML!!! (300 PV)
What the what?! You may have ordered this during the incredible Black Friday sale, but can you ever have too much Frankincense? I think not, especially when a full-size bottle of it is FREE!  This is my favorite gift with purchase item that YL does because Frankincense is so, so valued in our home. Skin care, immune support, calming, centering, emotional support - I mean there really are just so many different things it is amazing for! Here is a bit more information about this cherished oil:• With its grounding and calming aroma, this precious oil was historically used to increase spiritual awareness and beautify skin. Apply it topically to promote the appearance of healthy-looking skin and combine with oils like Manuka, Tea Tree, Blue Tansy, Rose or Lavender for extra support.• Diffuse this oil for a moment of calm when you’re besieged by holiday chaos.

I still can't believe that we get not one, not two, not three, but FOUR 15ml freebies this month! Like sooo crazy good!! I'd love to hear what you're most excited for in the Gifts With Purchase lineup and what seasonal essentials will be on your orders this month in the comments below.

Merry and bright: 11 ways to fill your home with Christmas Spirit     

                
Garlands on front doors and presents with bright bows
Bright, twinkly lighting and crystal-clear white snow
Ornaments dangling from festive pine trees
These are a few of our favorite things!

It’s official—the most wonderful time of the year is here! Soaking in the holiday spirit and spreading Christmas cheer is the best part of the season. Here to help: Christmas Spirit™ essential oil blend! With 11 ways to bring the Christmas spirit into your home, you’ll trade every greeting of “bah humbug” for “Merry Christmas to you!”

O’ Christmas Tree

When trimming the tree, opt for a classic, home-for-the-holidays look. Get the whole family involved, go green, and save some cash with these festive DIY tips:
  • String dried orange slices to make a garland to hang around the tree.
  • Nestle Christmas Spirit, Pine, or Peppermint-infused pinecones into the branches for an irresistibly seasonal scent.
  • Grab your empty oil bottles, remove the oil dropper, and gently press the bottles over each bulb on your twinkly lights.

Sugar Plums Danced in Their Heads

The excitement of going to sleep isn’t just reserved for December 24! Drag a mattress or some sleeping bags in front of the tree for a snuggly sleepover. Twinkling lights, a roaring fireplace, and Christmas stories will enchant friends, little ones, or that special someone alike.

It’s Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Christmas

Make your whole house smell like Santa’s workshop! When sprucing up for holiday guests, clean and create angelic aromas all at once.
  • Put several drops of Christmas Spirit essential oil blend on a cotton ball and place in the dirt tank of your vacuum. As you go over carpets and hardwood floors, the scent will fill every room.
  • Make a no-fuss, totally green air freshener with 1 tablespoon witch hazel and 15-25 drops of essential oil in 6 ounces of water.

Dressed in Holiday Style

If decorating every inch of the house is wrong, we don’t want to be right! After the tree is lit, move on to the kitchen, the front porch, and even every bathroom—with Christmas Spirit™ Foaming Hand Soap, of course. That way, no matter what your chore list looks like, you’ll be caroling your way through your to-do list.


Give It to Someone Special

While there is so much to be grateful for this time of year, there are so many who are less fortunate than us. Make giving back the reason for the season by serving your community. Volunteer at a school, deliver food to a homeless shelter, or donate to a charitable cause.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Among all the gift-giving, selfless serving, and holiday fun, make sure to take a moment for you. Whether you’re able to sneak away for a silent night or get a jump start on a merry morning, a bath is the perfect present to yourself. Mix 5 drops Christmas Spirit with ½ cup Epsom salt and add to a hot bath.

Oh, What Yum

It may be chilly and dark outside, but we’re baking up a storm inside! Turn on your ovens and get that gingerbread cookie dough and fancy frosting made. If you start now, you’ll have time to make Grandpa’s favorite pumpkin pie, little sis’ gooey brownies, and cookies for Santa that no one will be able to resist. Bonus points if you infuse them with Peppermint Vitality™ and Cinnamon Bark Vitality™ for a burst of yum!

Parties for Hosting

Nothing says it’s time to celebrate the holidays like watching It’s a Wonderful Life. Invite some friends over, jump into fuzzy socks and matching pajamas, and get cozy with this diffuser blend. The bright scent of Peace & Calming® mixed with snowy Northern Lights Black Spruce and spicy Christmas Spirit will make you happier than getting caught under the mistletoe!


Voices Singing, “Let’s Be Jolly”

A wise person once said, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” We couldn’t agree more! Whether you’ve got perfect pitch or just like to listen, here’s some magical music ideas for you:
  • Head to a local Christmas concert.
  • Go caroling around your neighborhood.
  • Create a playlist of traditional tunes and blast them all season long.

Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

We’re crossing our fingers for a white Christmas! Celebrate by running outside to make the sweetest snowman complete with a striped scarf, holiday hat, and carrot nose. If you live somewhere snow isn’t guaranteed, may we recommend a dance party around the Christmas tree?

Love and Joy Come to You, and to You Hot Chocolate Too . . .

Whether you were able to have a snowball fight or played board games inside instead, hot chocolate is a must, must, must! Our Lavender-infused hot chocolate adds just the unique twist you need to make this holiday season the most special one yet.

Welcome to November!

The sesons of fesitivites is slowly beginning, the frosts come more regularly and the palette of leaves on the ground is glorious. 

November has is beauty and its message -- the days draw in and darkness is early. 

We find ourselves giving thanks and preparing for more cold and damp to come. We are lucky to live in warmth and light inside. 

And November gives us time. Time to ponder. Time to dream. Time to really get clear on what is important in our lives and where our focus needs to be. 

This month, spend some time considering your wellness and where you can support yourself better. Take time to rest and allow your body to decompress. Long, dark nights are perfect for introspection so take the time to examine your thoughts and how those thoughts impact your goals. 

Let's allow ourselves a moment to breath in the deep crisp air of November and use it to heal.

End-of-Year Introspection: Taking a Break to Feel Good

                                       
A personal year-end introspection is an opportunity to observe the progress made and to reflect on what has been learned in order to move forward. In the end, it provides a clearer vision of our goals and what makes us feel good.
                                                                                                                                                         
                                                           
Introspection_large.png           

       
It’s not always easy to give yourself time to rest and reflect, especially when taking care of a loved one and when our daily lives are already busy. Let’s say, first, that doing a retrospect is by no means an obligation and, second, that you don’t have to follow a specific model if you want to do one. Karine prefers to write a long letter that she keeps and reads the next year. Claire escapes into nature for a few hours to walk and reflect. Guillaume does his year-end review in the form of a conversation with his family over a fondue.

If you’re up for it, here are some things to think about. Feel free to add your own to it.
                                           

How to prepare a year-end introspection?

Here are some things to consider in order to be well prepared:
  • Set aside a time frame of about 1 to 2 hours and put it in your agenda;
  • Sit in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed or distracted;
  • Equip yourself with writing materials: paper and pencil or computer.


What questions should you ask yourself?

Here are some sample questions to guide you in your reflection and help you take stock.
  • What are the events, big or small, for which I’m grateful?
  • What went less well?
  • What made me feel good?
  • What am I proud of?
  • What did I learn?
  • Who are the important people around me?


Look to the future

The year-end introspection also allows us to project ourselves into the future. Here are some sample questions to guide you in your reflection:
  • What could I change to feel better physically and mentally?
  • What do I want to learn, improve this year?
  • What do I want to move towards?
As you review your daily life, think about situations or habits that are draining your energy (insufficient sleep or exercise level, overwork, lack of support, etc.). Also, think about what helps you get better when you’re going through some tough times.

Specify one or two actions that would help your balance. For example, if the time spent in front of a screen in the evening proves to be harmful to your sleep, resolve to disconnect 1 hour before bed and indulge in a quieter activity.

Self-Reflection Questions for Introspection

18 Dec 2017 by  Courtney E. Ackerman, MA.

What Is the Importance of Introspection?

introspection self-reflection worksheets and toolsSo, why is introspection important?
Researchers have shown that we think more than 50,000 thoughts per day, of which more than half are negative and more than 90% are just repeats from the day before (Wood, 2013).

If you don’t make the time and effort to refocus your mind on the positive through introspection, you won’t give yourself the opportunity to grow and develop.

Enhancing our ability to understand ourselves and our motivations and to learn more about our own values helps us take the power away from the distractions of our modern, fast-paced lives and instead refocus on fulfillment (Wood, 2013).

The importance of doing it right
Reflecting on ourselves and our environments is a healthy and adaptive practice, but it should be undertaken with some care—there is, in fact, a wrong way to do it.

When your focus on introspection has morphed from a dedication to an obsession, you have taken it too far. In fact, those who take self-reflection too far can end up feeling more stressed, depressed, and anxious than ever (Eurich, 2017).

In addition, it is all too easy for us to fool ourselves into thinking we have found some deep insight that may or may not be accurate. We are surprisingly good at coming up with rational explanations for the irrational behaviors we engage in (Dahl, 2017).

To help stay on the right path with your self-reflection, consider asking more “what” questions than “why” questions. “Why” questions can highlight our limitations and stir up negative emotions, while “what” questions help keep us curious and positive about the future (Eurich, 2017).

With this important point in mind, let’s move on to the questions, exercises, and worksheets that you can use to work on your own self-reflection.

70 Self-Reflective Questions to Ask Yourself

What is the Importance of Introspection? self-reflectionThere are nearly endless questions, prompts, and ideas you can use to take a self-reflection break. Some of these can be asked, answered, and addressed every day, while others may best be saved for occasional self-reflection.

Read through the following three lists to get some ideas for introspective questions. Answering them can take you from feeling like you don’t understand yourself to knowing yourself like the back of your hand.
These 10 questions are great ways to jumpstart self-reflection (Woronko, n.d.):

Am I using my time wisely?
  1. Am I taking anything for granted?
  2. Am I employing a healthy perspective?
  3. Am I living true to myself?
  4. Am I waking up in the morning ready to take on the day?
  5. Am I thinking negative thoughts before I fall asleep?
  6. Am I putting enough effort into my relationships?
  7. Am I taking care of myself physically?
  8. Am I letting matters that are out of my control stress me out?
  9. Am I achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself?
The following 30 questions are questions you can ask yourself every day to get to know yourself better (William, n.d.):

  1. Who am I, really?
  2. What worries me most about the future?
  3. If this were the last day of my life, would I have the same plans for today?
  4. What am I really scared of?
  5. Am I holding on to something I need to let go of?
  6. If not now, then when?
  7. What matters most in my life?
  8. What am I doing about the things that matter most in my life?
  9. Why do I matter?
  10. Have I done anything lately that’s worth remembering?
  11. Have I made someone smile today?
  12. What have I given up on?
  13. When did I last push the boundaries of my comfort zone?
  14. If I had to instill one piece of advice in a newborn baby, what advice would I give?
  15. What small act of kindness was I once shown that I will never forget?
  16. How will I live, knowing I will die?
  17. What do I need to change about myself?
  18. Is it more important to love or be loved?
  19. How many of my friends would I trust with my life?
  20. Who has had the greatest impact on my life?
  21. Would I break the law to save a loved one?
  22. Would I steal to feed a starving child?
  23. What do I want most in life?
  24. What is life asking of me?
  25. Which is worse: failing or never trying?
  26. If I try to fail and succeed, what have I done?
  27. What’s the one thing I’d like others to remember about me at the end of my life?
  28. Does it really matter what others think about me?
  29. To what degree have I actually controlled the course of my life?
  30. When all is said and done, what will I have said more than I’ve done?
Finally, the following 30 prompts and questions are great ways to put your journal to use (Tartakovsky, 2014):

  1. My favorite way to spend the day is . . .
  2. If I could talk to my teenage self, the one thing I would say is . . .
  3. The two moments I’ll never forget in my life are . . . (Describe them in great detail, and what makes them so unforgettable.)
  4. Make a list of 30 things that make you smile.
  5. “Write about a moment experienced through your body. Making love, making breakfast, going to a party, having a fight, an experience you’ve had or you imagine for your character. Leave out thought and emotion, and let all information be conveyed through the body and senses.”
  6. The words I’d like to live by are . . .
  7. I couldn’t imagine living without . . .
  8. When I’m in pain—physical or emotional—the kindest thing I can do for myself is . . .

  13. Name what is enough for you.
  14. If my body could talk, it would say . . .
  15. Name a compassionate way you’ve supported a friend recently. Then, write down how you can do the same for yourself.
  16. What do you love about life?
  17. What always brings tears to your eyes? (As Paulo Coelho has said, “Tears are words that need to be written.”)
  18. Write about a time when your work felt real, necessary and satisfying to you, whether the work was paid or unpaid, professional or domestic, physical or mental.
  19. Write about your first love—whether it’s a person, place or thing.
  20. Using 10 words, describe yourself.
  21. What’s surprised you the most about your life or life in general?

  23. I feel most energized when . . .

  26. What’s one topic you need to learn more about to help you live a more fulfilling life? (Then, follow through and learn more about that topic.)
  27. I feel happiest in my skin when . . .
  28. Make a list of everything you’d like to say no to.
  29. Make a list of everything you’d like to say yes to.
  30. Write the words you need to hear

November's Featured Recipe

Vitamin C


Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and one of the most important vitamins required by our bodies. Super C™ not only contains 2,166% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C per serving (2 tablets), but it is also fortified with rutin, citrus bioflavonoids and minerals to balance electrolytes and enhance the effectiveness and absorption of vitamin C.* 

An indispensable supplement, Super C™ offers head-to-toe benefits. In additional to helping our bodies maintain healthy bones, hair, nails and skin, it is a valuable source of essential vitamins and minerals our bodies need to perform its daily functions. The ingredients in Super C™ play an important role in normal immune and circulatory functions, help to strengthen connective tissues, and promote overall health, vitality, and longevity.

*Because our bodies cannot manufacture vitamin C, we can benefit by consuming this powerful antioxidant daily.

Grapefruit has such a bright, zingy aroma and flavor and we all should all be using it more in my humble opinion!

Here are some other suggestions from YL on using Grapefruit Vitality:
• Bring some zest to your marinades, dressings, sauces, and desserts with this fresh, citrusy favorite.
• The morning after a big meal, start your day with a water detox infused with Grapefruit Vitality oil’s refreshing flavor.

Plus, with wet shoes, boots, and clothes making their way inside this time of year bringing unwanted odors, Citrus Fresh will help cleanse the air with a fresh, clean scent when diffused! Here are a few more tips from YL:
• Freshen your space with the sweet aroma of Citrus Fresh essential oil blend. Add a few drops onto cotton balls and stash them in drawers, in air vents, under garbage cans, and in shoes for a quick boost of freshness.
• Apply generous drops to your pots and pans, grills, or any sticky, greasy grime.

🫁 R.C. 15ml (300 PV)
R.C. is a refreshing, Eucalyptus forward blend that is great for helping us breathe easier this season. Use it in your diffuser (I love adding a drop or two of Lemon) or rub it on your chest and neck with a carrier oil after a workout to help ease your hard-working respiratory system.
• Take a breather amid the holiday chaos with R.C.'s refreshing aroma.
• Use R.C. with V-6 for a foot or back massage after your gym routine, outdoor adventure, or yoga practice to enjoy a refreshing scent.

Let’s Teach Kids to Introspect

Why we need introspection in our curriculums



Ally Sprague
Sep 22, 2019


When did you realize that you had a mind?

I was 22. I had just graduated college and moved to New York. I felt underwhelmed by my job and my social life, and I was passively searching for something, anything, that would make me feel more alive.

I grew up going to church, and though I’d wandered away as an adult, I figured I’d try searching for fulfillment there. In the pews I had my realization: I wasn’t there for the sermons or to develop my faith in a greater being. I was there to listen to myself.

Behind the buzz of the pastor’s voice and the hum of the psalms, I discovered a world within my mind where I could explore my opinions, perspectives, reactions, reactions to reactions, feelings, and everything that made me, well, me.

As I explored, I slowly gained the confidence to start pushing past my mental obstacles.
Instead of convincing myself that I actually did like my job because it was a “good learning experience” where I was “moving up the ladder,” I’d forge ahead to the truth behind it — no matter how much I moved up, this industry was going to keep making me feel empty.

Instead of telling myself I was just an introvert and I wouldn’t feel satisfied with a social life of any kind, I’d dig further to consider how I’d spend my ideal weekend — the types of conversations I’d have and activities I’d do.

These conversations with myself were scary — they stole my complacency and comfort — but as the learnings poured in, I started making progress towards a more fulfilling life. I became curious about myself; open to changing things, learning things, trying things. And some of those things were blissfully right for me.

When I think about how long it took me to start practicing introspection, I’m alarmed. For two entire decades I ignored the majority of my internal dialogue.

Why?

No one teaches us that our inner-world is worth exploring beyond the child’s play of imaginary house, and in my case, nothing triggered me to realize it on my own.
Even if we are lucky enough to realize it, no one teaches us how to do it.

Over the years I’ve built infrastructure around my introspection — I see a psychoanalyst, I meditate, I write. But it took a lot of trial and error to build a routine that works for me, and I almost quit multiple times along the way.

I want it to be easier for today’s kids.

I want them to learn to introspect like they learn science or math, or like they learn to brush their teeth.

I want them to have introspection coaches the way they have soccer coaches.

I want them to take a “Self” class where they learn the science of our minds — lessons from psychology, biology, neuroscience. And how to practice introspection by exploring, accepting and working with our minds.

I want them to grow up knowing the entire menu of introspection support available to them — therapy, meditation, journaling, religion, exercise, etc..

When they are navigating increasingly nuanced social lives in middle school, I want them to learn how to recognize their feelings and process them.

When they’re finding a job after college, I want them to learn to push past mental obstacles to consider what might make them feel fulfilled, rather than successful.

Perhaps you, unlike me, have always been introspective and have always known how to introspect in a way that works for you. If that’s the case, I’d love to learn from you! My guess, though, is that the vast majority of us need help exploring our minds. And learning how to do so at a young age will unlock even greater potential, freedom and fulfillment in our lives.

So, back to the original question: when did you realize you had a mind?

20? 30? 60? Perhaps just now?

Let’s help today’s kids get there sooner than we did.

Welcome to October!

Fall is well and truly upon us. Days are cooler,nights are cooler. Many of us have already had the first frosts of the season.

October is the month of final harvests, a full on feast, and us drawing ever more inside for our days. If we are truly lucky, we get days of crisp sunshine and crackling leaves, just long enough to finish preparing the yard for winter and its deep sleep. 

The routine for the next few months is now set and it is time to find joy and peace in the regularity and comforting repetition. It is also the month feasts and of ghouls and goblins so no time like now to prepare for the effect overindulgences can have on our well-being!

Our inside environments become even more important during these shortening days so lets do what we can to make our homes the centre of peace in our lives.

Light and Sleep - A Critical Relationship

Light is the most important external factor affecting sleep. While most people intuitively know that it’s easier to sleep when it’s dark, the link between light and sleep goes much deeper.

Light plays a central role in regulating circadian rhythm, the body’s internal clock that signals when to be alert and when to rest. Light also affects the production of melatonin, an essential sleep-promoting hormone.

Daily light exposure, including the type of light we see as well as when and how long we’re exposed to it, has a critical effect on sleep. Learning about the complex links between light and sleep allows you to set up your bedroom to be more conducive to consistent, high-quality sleep.

How Does Light Affect Sleep?

While human biology evolved with sleep following the daily patterns of sunlight and darkness, ubiquitous electricity makes 24/7 illumination possible. From streetlights to office lighting to cell phones, artificial light is a constant part of modern life and has dramatic effects on sleep, influencing circadian rhythm, melatonin production, and sleep cycles.

Circadian Rhythms

Circadian rhythm is a 24-hour internal clock that coordinates a wide range of processes in the body, including sleep. This rhythm is controlled by a small part of the brain, known as the circadian pacemaker, that is powerfully influenced by light exposure.

When light enters the eye, it is sensed by a special group of cells on the retina, which is carried to the brain and interpreted as information about the time of day. The brain then sends signals  throughout the body to control organs and other systems in accordance with that time of day.

When exposed to only natural light, a person’s circadian rhythm becomes closely synchronized with sunrise and sunset, staying awake during the day and sleeping when it’s dark. In modern society, though, electricity creates an abundance of light sources that affect the brain’s circadian pacemaker.

Excess or poorly timed artificial light exposure can cause a person’s circadian rhythm to be misaligned with the day-night schedule. This can throw their sleep out-of-whack and induce other concerning health impacts including worsened metabolism, weight gain, cardiovascular problems, and perhaps even an  elevated cancer risk. Circadian rhythms are also strongly correlated to mood, mental health, and seasonal affective disorder
An image of the light spectrum and explanation that hues of red, orange, and yellow are better for preparing the mind and body for sleep.

Melatonin

Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally made by the body, and its production is closely tied to light. In response to darkness, the pineal gland in the brain  initiates production of melatonin, but light exposure slows or halts that production.

Drowsiness increases with rising melatonin levels, which is one way that this hormone facilitates sleep. In addition, daily cycles of melatonin production normalize circadian rhythm, reinforcing a stable sleep-wake schedule. For some people with sleeping problems supplemental melatonin may be prescribed to help regulate sleep timing.

Sleep Cycles

Not all sleep has the same characteristics. In a normal sleep period, a person goes through four to six sleep cycles, each of which lasts from 70 to 120 minutes. Those cycles are made up of multiple stages of sleep, including both rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM sleep.
Light exposure at night can hinder transitions between sleep cycles, reducing the quality of sleep. Too much light can cause repeated awakenings, interrupting the sleep cycle and reducing time spent in deeper, more restorative sleep stages.

Circadian Rhythm Disorders

Circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders occur when a person’s internal clock isn’t functioning properly or becomes misaligned with their environment. Many circadian rhythm disorders are tied to patterns of light exposure.

Jet Lag

Jet lag is a circadian disorder that arises after long-distance plane travel. When confronted with the distinct day-night cycle in the arrival city’s time zone, circadian rhythm can get thrown off-kilter. As a result, a person may struggle to fall asleep, wake up earlier than they want to, or experience excessive daytime sleepiness.

Addressing jet lag usually means acclimating to the new time zone, such as by getting daylight exposure at specific times and avoiding light at certain times to realign circadian rhythm. This process can take several days and up to two weeks.

Shift Work Disorder

Some work schedules, known as shift work, require working into the evening or overnight. Night shifts may be an everyday part of a job or part of a rotating schedule. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates that around  16% of workersin America have evening or overnight shifts.

Shift workers typically have to sleep during the daytime, putting them at high risk of a misaligned circadian rhythm and the development of shift work disorder. This circadian rhythm disorder can cause insufficient sleep, excessive sleepiness at inopportune times, mood problems, and elevated risk of workplace accidents.

Other Circadian Sleep-Wake Disorders

Circadian rhythm disorders can happen when a person’s internal clock gets shifted too far forward or back or if it fails to follow a stable 24-hour schedule. These problems are frequently connected to a person’s daily behavior and light exposure.

One treatment for many circadian disorders is  light therapy, which uses sitting close to a high-powered lamp at scheduled times to retrain the body’s internal clock. The strong lamp is meant to mimic daylight and is often used in the morning to normalize circadian timing.

What Types of Light Affect Sleep?

Virtually all light can affect sleep, but not all types of light have the same impact. Daylight, which in direct sunlight has up to 10,000 lux, a unit to  measure illuminance, is far more intense than even bright office lighting, which rarely reaches about 500 lux. For this reason, daylight is a profound influence on sleep and circadian timing.

There can be important differences between types of artificial light as well. Some types have more illuminance and brightness. That said, even light that appears to have the same brightness may, in reality, have a different wavelength, changing how it’s perceived by the eye and brain.

For example, blue light has a short wavelength and is emitted by many LEDs. Studies have found that it has a significantly larger effect on  melatonin and circadian rhythm than light with a longer wavelength. Many electronic devices, including cell phones, tablets, and laptops, emit blue light, and their extensive evening use can  contribute to sleep problems.

Is It Best to Sleep in Complete Darkness?

As a general rule, it is best to sleep in as much darkness as possible. Pitch darkness reduces potential distractions and disruptions to sleep. Sleeping with a light on interferes with sleep cycles and causes more fragmented sleep, and these downsides may be greatest in the few hours before waking up.

Research demonstrates that  closing your eyes isn’t enough; your eyelids can’t block sufficient light. The effects on circadian rhythm can occur even with low levels of indoor light and closed eyes.
In addition to sleep quality, there are other reasons why research indicates that it’s best to sleep in pitch darkness:
  • Eye strain: Even low levels of ambient light during sleep have been  associated with eye strain, resulting in soreness, tiredness, and discomfort in the eyes, as well as greater difficulty focusing.
  • Weight gain: Keeping lights on during sleep appears to affect circadian regulation of metabolism, increasing the risk of weight gain even if sleep itself is not disrupted. In one study over a five year period, women who slept with a light or TV on were  considerably more likely to gain 10 pounds or more, even after controlling for factors relating to their diet and exercise habits.
  • Cancer risk: One observational study  found an association between people whose homes had high levels of artificial light at night and their risk of breast and prostate cancers. This study did not demonstrate causation, and further research is necessary to understand this correlation.
The diverse potential consequences of excess artificial light in your bedroom reflect that light exposure may throw off circadian rhythm and its vital role in promoting numerous elements of physical and mental health.

How Can You Adjust Your Bedroom Environment to Get the Best Sleep?  

A first step in setting up your bedroom to promote sleep is to make it as dark as possible. Blackout curtains block the majority of external light to foster a darker environment.

When preparing for bed, keep your lights dim. Using a small, low-power lamp can help transition to bedtime and pitch darkness. Low illuminance and warm color temperature may help with relaxation and getting into the right mindset for sleep.

Another step is to reduce or eliminate technology in your bedroom. Screen time can keep your mind stimulated, delaying bedtime, and, at the same time, the light can disrupt circadian timing, melatonin production, and overall sleep. 

If you can’t get electronics completely out of your bedroom, turn their brightness down as far as possible, try not to use them before bedtime, and keep them silenced during the night. 

Lighting a Path to the Bathroom 

For many adults, especially older adults at risk of falls, it’s important to be able to see where they are walking when going to the bathroom at night. To address this, first ensure that the floor is free of tripping hazards like rugs or cords. Motion-activated lights for hallways or the bathroom can deliver low levels of light only when it’s necessary rather than throughout the night.

Wearing an Eye Mask

Sometimes another person wants to keep the TV or a light on, preventing you from sleeping in the dark. Having a conversation about keeping the bedroom dark may or, if they insist on having a light or the TV on, it should be kept at the lowest brightness setting.If the light is still bothersome, you may get relief by wearing a close-fitting eye mask. Some evidence indicates that an eye covering can  contribute to improved sleep quality 

Changing the Settings on Your Electronics

If you doze off with the TV on, it continues generating artificial light in your bedroom during the night. The most sure-fire way to resolve this is to remove the TV from your bedroom. If that’s not practical, check if your TV has a sleep timer to automatically turn off after a period of time. If not, schedule a “lights out” time to shut off the TV each night, and use that as a way to establish a consistent bedtime.Staring at a cellphone screen before bed has also become more commonplace. Make it a routine to minimize electronic use two to three hours before bedtime. Special glasses can filter blue light to keep it from reaching your eye, which may cut down on the effect of  blue light on your sleep View Source . Many phones and tablets have a “night mode” to reduce blue light, although the stimulation from screen time may still affect sleep. If you need to use devices before bed, try out one of several smartphone and computer applications that can help reduce blue light emission

Diffuse Essential Oils that Promote Relaxation and Sleep

Many essential oil are known to help promote relaxation and sleep. Cedarwood, Lavender, Vetiver, and others create a calming environment and diffusing them overnight can help you get to sleep and stay asleep. 

Many diffusers have timed settings so look to using those to help promote your sleep.

Using Essential Oils to Help You Sleep Better
    
If you’ve ever used blackout shades or listened to mellow bedtime music, you already know that sight and sound can be your tickets to dreamland. But have you tried using your sense of smell to get better sleep? That’s where aromatherapy comes in.
Aromatherapy is a therapeutic technique that involves breathing in or topically applying highly concentrated oils. These oils, also known as essential oils, are extracted from the flowers, roots, leaves, or seeds of plants. It takes pounds and pounds of flowers to make one bottle of essential oil.
“Scents used in aromatherapy prompt our nervous system to transmit signals to the limbic system in the brain,” says Holly Schiff, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in sleep. “This is the same part of the brain that houses emotion and memory. So, you can condition your brain to sleep with a certain kind of scent.”
Aside from its cozy vibes, aromatherapy can be an invaluable tool for quieting distracting thoughts and getting some shut-eye — and there are plenty of ways to try it for yourself at home.

Methods of aromatherapy to try

There are several ways to experiment with aromatherapy, and explore the sleep benefits the fragrances could offer. Read on for expert-approved aromatherapy methods that can improve your sleep quality.

Diffusers and misters

If you love the idea of being surrounded by a strong smell that takes your brain far away, an essential oil diffuser might be just what you’re looking for. Diffusers are ideal for helping you sleep because they’re long-lasting, creating mist continually throughout the night.

There are different types diffusers which use different methods of releasing fragrance into the air. The type you like may depend on how strong you want the scent to be (whole room vs. your desk space) or how easy it is to clean the diffuser machine.
                                                                                                                                                               
Pure Enrichment
Most common diffusers have ultrasonic technology, which uses vibrations rather than heat to break down essential oils and water that are then misted into the room. Other diffuser technologies include:
  • passive: releases fragrance through ceramic, natural wood, or reeds  
  • heat: uses fire or electricity to warm up the oil until it evaporates into the air 
  • evaporative: uses a fan to disperse the scent throughout the room 
  • nebulizer: heatless and water-free, this method uses air pressure to turn essential oils into vapors  

Topical application, such as massage oil or body lotion

For better sleep, Schiff recommends massaging a sleep-boosting essential oil onto your forehead, wrists, and neck. This method allows you to benefit from both inhalation of the oils and full muscle relaxation. “They also enter your bloodstream quicker and get absorbed through the skin,” she explains.
While research shows that essential oils are safely metabolized in the body, you should always dilute your oils with a vegetable-based oil such as olive or coconut to help prevent skin irritations and allergic reactions. The Alliance of International Aromatherapists recommends essential oils be diluted to 2-3% concentration for massages and body lotion.

Facial steaming and compresses

Using facial steaming 15 to 20 minutes before bed can be an effective way to relax before your sleep session. A small 2019 study found that adult men who tried steam inhalation were more relaxed and had more deep sleep.
You don’t even need an official steamer. This DIY hack is easy: Just add one to three drops of essential oil to a large pot of warm water and lean over the pot with a towel covering your head for about 10 to 15 minutes.
You can also make a hot towel compress with the water and wrap the towel around a sore area to encourage muscle relaxation.

Aromatic baths

Taking an aromatic bath 1 to 2 hours before bedtime is another great way to get started with aromatherapy. Schiff recommends adding drops of a soothing essential oil like lavender to your bathwater and stirring it before soaking. As an added bonus, the heated water will relax your muscles, which promotes better sleep.



How does aromatherapy work?

A 2021 review looking at the effect of essential oils and mood regulation notes that the amygdala, which is part of your limbic system, is responsible for processing your emotional response and controlling the scent intensity.

“When you smell or breathe in essential oils, they're picked up by receptors in the nose and sinuses,” says aromatherapist Holly Spears. From there, they travel to the olfactory bulb, the olfactory cortex, and finally to your limbic system, the part of your brain which controls your mood and emotions.

Benefits of aromatherapy

Aromatherapy has many health benefits, including:
  • aiding with sleep  
  • elevating mood and relieving stress 
  • alleviating sore muscles 
  • helping to treat acne 

Which essential oils help with improving sleep quality?

Our sense of smell plays a significant role in memory recall, emotion, and sleep. “Many essential oils have properties that promote relaxation, helping you fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep all night,” explains Spears.

Although research on essential oils is limited, lavender is the most widely used for sleep support. Not only can it improve our overall quality of rest, but it can also help fight off the anxiety we often store up before bedtime. Some studies suggest lavender as a natural remedy for treating insomnia.

According to Spears, other popular essential oils used for sleep include Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, bergamot, frankincense, and valerian.

How to know you’re getting quality essential oils

Aromatherapy can help soothe your body and mind, which can lead to reduced fatigue and deeper sleep. That being said, not all essential oils are created equal. Experts agree that since they aren’t regulated by the FDA, consumers should take care to buy high quality products.
                                                                                                                                               Diffuser reeds in a jar of essential oils                

If you’re ready to give aromatherapy a try but aren’t sure how to differentiate between pure essential oils and cheap imitations, don’t sweat it. Below are some tips to help you determine the quality of oils before buying them.

  • Check the bottle: Quality suppliers use dark glass bottles with an eyedropper cap. 
  • Read the label: It should state which plant parts were used to make the oil and how it was extracted and its growing conditions. 
  • Verify the source: If there’s no Latin name listed and the seller uses the word “fragrance,” it’s likely that the oil is fake. 
  • Opt for organic essential oils: This ensures that certain pesticides haven’t been used during the growing process. 
  • Use oils from a reputable company: Search for real, reputable reviews online to gauge the quality of both the product and the company.

How Diffusers Work


Diffusers work by breaking down the essential oil into micro molecules then projecting them into the air to fill a room or work space.

As the oils break down they release natural ozone and, freshen and improve the quality of the air! 

The particles remain in the air for several hours depending on how long the diffuser was on and how much oil was used.



What are the different Types of Diffusers?

There are several different types of diffusers and they are listed below with a simple description of each one.

Ultrasonic Diffuser – This diffuser uses electronic frequencies to create vibrations that are carried to the surface where oils are floating. The vibrations vaporize the oil and disperse it into the air without using any kind of heat.

Cold Air Diffuser – A cold air diffuser uses room-temperature air to blow the oil into a nebulizer where it is vaporized. This diffuser can diffuse quickly and efficiently; however it is noisy and can be a little messy! It also can not effectively diffuse heavier, thicker oils and it is hard to clean.

Evaporative Diffuser – This diffuser is very basic in operation compared with an ultrasonic diffuser. A fan blows air through a pad or filter where the oil sits and vaporizes the oil on the pad. The biggest problem is that the lighter oils diffuse off quicker than the heavier oils. So these are pretty ineffective compared to the other diffusers, but great for your vehicle or when traveling!

Heat Diffuser – This method uses a heat source to disperse the essential oil. Any diffuser that operates in this manner will alter the chemistry of the essential oil so this is not recommended at all. Unless you want your room just to smell good!

Why is the Ultrasonic Diffuser the Best Aromatherapy Diffuser?

Here is why the Ultrasonic Diffuser is the Best –
- Easy to Use and Clean
- Breaks down Any Essential Oil (no matter the viscosity or volatility)
- High Oil Capacity
- Low Noise Level 
- Air Saturation is High
- Covers Large Square Footage
- May have a Timer depending on the Model
- Eliminate unpleasant environmental odours
- Purify the air to create healthy environment
- Increase relaxation and calming environment

And of course, all of the essential oil benefits! Here are the some other ways to use an ultrasonic diffuser:

 Diffuse in the work space to improve concentration and mental clarity
 Diffuse in your bedroom (and your children's) to help wind down before bedtime or help with occasional sleeplessness
 Diffuse when sleeping for wellness and vitality
 Diffuse in your home or office to helps ease tension and relieve stress
 Diffuse at the barn or kennel to help purify the air and provide a relaxing environment!
 Diffuse in the house and/or bedroom to open up airways
And many more!

How do I use a Diffuser?

Start by diffusing 15-30 minutes per day until you familiarize yourself with the effects. 
Then increase the frequency; generally diffusing oils for about 1-4 is very beneficial. But depending on what you are using it for, there are some recommendations that it be used 24 hours a day!

Can I put Essential Oil in my Humidifier or Vaporizer?

Yes, you definitely can but the cold air ones are the best. Heat alters the chemistry and thus the therapeutic effects of the oil.

Are there any Essential Oils that I can’t Diffuse in my Diffuser?

Nope, diffuse away! And have fun! This is one of the best ways to enjoy and reap the benefits of essential oils! 


Diffuser Blends

Right now I am really liking the combo of Stress Away, Lime and Rosemary. It’s refreshing and sweet at the same time.

To purify up the air I like to use oils like Purification, Citrus Fresh and Grapefruit! 

Or experiment and make your own blend! Happy Diffusing! Watch inside New Perspective Oilers each month for a diffuser calendar that can help you get really creative with your diffusing blends!
                    





Diffuser Blends Cheat Sheet


If you find it hard to keep all the uses of essential oils straight, this little cheat sheet will be very helpful

EOs are SO much more than just a nice smell and remembering their wellness use when you need it is key to reaching for them before over the counter medications. 

If your oils are easy to access and you have a basic idea of what they can be used for, you will get the most out of them! 

And if you are interested in learning more about how to use oils for many common and not so common things, make sure you are in New Perspective Oilers FB group where a TON of education happens.

Fly Like A Bee


 I saw this the other day and I wanted to share it here with all of you!! <3 🐝

NASA has a poster hanging with bees that reads:

"Aerodynamically a bee's body is not made to fly; the good thing is that the bee doesn't know ".

The law of physics says that a bee cannot fly, the aerodynamic principle says that the breadth of its wings is too small to keep its huge body in flight, but a bee doesn’t know, it doesn’t know anything about physics or its logic and flies anyway.

This is what we can all do, fly and prevail in every moment in the face of any difficulty and in any circumstance despite what they say.

Let us be bees, no matter the size of our wings, we take flight.

May we all remember this when we're losing faith or hope... the impossible can be. <3 


                                         

10 Back-to-school tips for kids and parents        by the Personal blog                                 

                                                      
          
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
 The new school year means new friends, teachers, clothes, and classrooms. It’s normal for kids (and their parents) to feel anxious about returning to school. Here are some simple ways to ease the transition from vacation-mode to school-mode.        
               



Tips for getting kids ready for back-to-school

Whatever their age, many kids are apprehensive about starting school or going back to school. The good news is there’s a lot you can do to ease their minds and help them get ready for a new school year.

1. Early to bed, early to rise

Getting back into a school sleep schedule won’t happen overnight! A few weeks before school starts, get your child into the habit of going to bed earlier. Gentle winding-down activities such as bath time and reading before bed can help your child relax.

2. Re-establish a routine

Establishing a consistent routine is important for kids. Write out the steps in the routine and rehearse them with your child. In the evening, this could include doing homework, playtime, brushing their teeth, having a bath, and reading before bed.

3. Encourage independence

Children who play an active role in preparing for back to school – such as choosing and organizing school supplies and new clothes – are more likely to get excited about going back to school, which in turn eases their jitters. Is your child old enough for chores like emptying the dishwasher or making lunches? Daily, age-appropriate tasks will help your child gain independence and confidence.

4. Choose the right backpack

Backpacks that are too heavy or worn improperly could result in muscle strain, headaches, and neck pain. Try to choose a backpack made of sturdy, lightweight fabric with wide, padded straps that will support your child’s shoulders. Watch that they don’t sling it over just one shoulder.

5. Talk about safety

Review outdoor safety rules – things like looking both ways before crossing the street, taking the same route every day if they are walking, familiarizing themselves with crosswalk rules, and being cautious in talking to strangers.

6. Establish healthy habits

Involve your children in choosing and preparing healthy lunches and snacks. Help them find physical activities they enjoy. Take them shopping for healthy snacks and lunch items  , Link opens in a new window. they can pack themselves. Try to stick to regular meal times.

7. Limit screen time

Back to school is the perfect opportunity to re-establish screen time limits. Why not have the whole family “unplug” in the evenings before bedtime? Choose a spot where everybody can charge their devices overnight. Use an alarm clock instead of a cellphone to wake up in the mornings.

8. Map it out

If your kids are starting at a new school, practice walking or driving to the bus stop or to the school building a week or two before school starts. You could even play in the school playground before school starts. This creates fun memories associated with the school before summer vacation ends.

9. Talk about first-week jitters

Reassure your child that being nervous is natural – even for teachers. You can help your child cope with these feelings when you:

  • Let them express their fears. Perhaps you can offer stories of your own first-day jitters when you were a child.
  • Teach them to breathe deeply and slowly to calm their nerves.
  • Discuss the scenarios that worry them. For example, if they’re worried about who to sit with or talk to on the first day, help them plan a strategy and rehearse it so they’ll know what to do.

10. Celebrate the start of a new school year

If you celebrate the first day of school, your kids will see back-to-school as a transition they can really enjoy. Try a back-to-school party the day before school starts, complete with cake, balloons and educational gifts. And don’t forget to take a picture on the front step in their first-day-of-school outfits. It’s going to be a great year

How to Use Essential Oils
by Young Living


We’ve all wondered how to use essential oils, quizzing friends for advice or scouring the web for the latest tips. There’s no trick to using essential oils, though. You don’t need training or a degree. With a little practice and the suggestions you’ll find here, you’ll become the go-to expert on how to use essential oils in no time!There are three primary ways to use essential oils. First there’s aromatically, when you inhale the oil’s aroma either from the bottle or via steam or a diffuser. You can also apply them topically—just be sure to dilute it with a carrier oil like olive oil before application. With most oils you can dispense a few diluted drops on your skin. With others you’ll want to add them to your favourite lotion, cream or bath gel. Finally, you can even ingest small amounts of a few select essential oils to enjoy their flavors as well as their benefits.

However you use your essential oils, we recommend you always check the label on how to best apply them. Essential oils are highly concentrated natural extracts located in a plant’s seeds, leaves, bark, flowers, roots, stems, rinds and other parts. Distillers of essential oils use various methods to extract these oils that render them even more potent than they were in their respective plants. In such a concentrated form, it’s important to know how to use essential oils safely and what precautions to take.

We’ll explore how to use essential oils and what steps you can to enjoy their natural benefits while also handling them safely.

How to Apply Essential Oils


Stumped on how to apply your essential oils? How you apply an oil depends on what benefit you want to get out of it. Different oils offer different benefits, depending on how and where you apply them. So, before using any new essential oil, be sure to check that oil’s uses and benefits and read any labels and instructions that come with it. If you have questions or concerns, check with your healthcare provider.

Using Essential Oils Aromatically

Let’s start with the hallmark way to use essential oils: aromatically. All essential oils feature a signature aroma you can smell and inhale for various effects. One oil’s crisp scent can invigorate you when you need a midday pick-me-up. Another’s soothing aroma can help you unwind after a tough day. You can use essential oils aromatically by simply opening the bottle and inhaling its aroma. They can also be applied topically as a personal fragrance, but always dilute them with a carrier oil, which is a plant-derived oil like coconut or almond oil. Dilute a few drops of essential oil with your carrier oil and then rub it into your palms and inhale or dab some behind your ear or on your neck. You can also use a diffuser to disperse the essential oil into the air.

Using Essential Oils Topically

Another favourite way to apply essential oils is topically, where you allow the oil to absorb into your skin. As mentioned before, always dilute oils with a carrier oil before you apply them topically. Topical oils can become part of a massage or added to your preferred lotion, moisturizer or other personal care product. Some oils, particularly those from the citrus family, can cause photosensitivity. A carrier oil is a plant-derived oil like coconut and almond oil that can be used to dilute an essential oil’s concentration.

Using Essential Oils Internally

If you think an oil smells terrific, wait until you taste it! You can season your favourite dish or flavor a drink with certain grades of essential oils. Ingesting oils lets you savor all their savory, herbaceous, spicy, fruity potential. The simplest ways to take essential oils internally is to add them to a glass of water, take them in a capsule or use them as seasoning. Start off with a small amount. A little goes a long way, and even a single drop might overpower your recipe. One recommendation is to dip a toothpick in the oil and stir that little bit in as a starting point. Of course, before you use any oils internally, make sure the oil is safe to ingest. Unless it specifically says on the label that it’s safe for ingestion, assume it’s safe for external use only.



What Are the Best Essential Oils for Beginners?

Getting started with essential oils can be intimidating. How do you know what oils to start with and how to use them? With hundreds of different oils, each with unique uses, applications and benefits, it can be like drinking from a firehose.
The ideal oils for beginners are those that come with many benefits and applications. You can find a use for each of them in about every corner of your home and facet of your life. Here are the top ten oils recommended for those who are new to essential oils.


Top 10 Essential Oils for Those Who Are New to Oils


                                                                                                                                                    

  • Cedarwood - This essential oil’s balmy, rich scent can chase away unwanted smells and invites an atmosphere of coziness and peace.                                           
  • Oregano - With its warm, herbaceous aroma, Oregano can be added to a carrier oil and rubbed into your joints after a long day.                                                    
  • Lavender This gentle oil can be used almost anywhere—added to water to make a room-freshening spray, in the bath or mixed with your favourite lotion.
  • Peppermint - Peppermint’s cool, crisp scent and tingling touch make it one of the most versatile oils. Rub it into fatigued muscles after a run or fitness class for a refreshing post-workout cooldown.
  • Lemon - The tangy scent of lemon can liven any day. Diffuse it to share its summery aroma, apply a couple drops to a cotton ball to rub away sticky adhesive or promote the appearance of youthful skin by adding it to your nighttime skin care routine. 
  • Frankincense - Its grounding, complex aroma is often diffused during prayer or meditation to encourage self-reflection
  • Tea Tree - Tea Tree is widely used for its cleansing properties, particularly when applied topically to the skin, hair and nails or to neutralize unwanted odours.                     
  • Orange - Orange’s sweet smell makes everything feel right. Add it to your linen spray to give your wash some citrus-scented freshness.                                                  
  • Eucalyptus Radiata - You can literally use this Australian oil from head to toe, to rejuvenate your hair; help hydrate dull, dry skin; or to inhale as you wind down for bed. ™
  • Grapefruit - Want your house to feel like a sunny beach house? Grapefruit brings a welcome burst of freshness, whether you’re diffusing it or using it to zest up your household cleane
As you take each of these oils for a test drive, you’ll find ones that work for you and others that don’t. To guarantee the best experience when trying out essential oils, be sure to select oils known for their quality and potency.


The Basics Tenants of Essential Oil Safety


When learning how to use essential oils safely, remember that these oils are extremely potent and should always be handled carefully. With that in mind, here are a few basics on how to handle essential oils carefully.

Always check the label
Before using any new oil, be sure to check the label for directions and warnings.

A little goes a long way
Less is more when it comes to these concentrated oils. You can always add more, so whether you’re using oils aromatically, topically with a carrier oil or internally, start slow. Use the smallest recommended amount and then work your way up as needed.

Watch for a reaction
Everyone is different, so as you start out with small amounts of these oils, watch for any reactions to the essential oils you use. If your skin becomes irritated, apply a carrier or fatty oil to the affected area to dilute the essential oil.

Use one oil at a time
Only use one new oil at a time to see how your body will react to it. After applying the new oil, wait at least 30 minutes before applying another new one.

Avoid applying oils to certain parts of the body
Don’t apply essential oils to your eyes, ears, nose or other areas with sensitive skin.

Consult your healthcare provider
If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition, talk to your healthcare provider before trying any oils.

Be aware of oils that cause photosensitivity
Some oils, mostly those from the citrus family, can cause photosensitivity to direct sunlight for at least 12 hours after application. Make sure you stay out of direct sunlight after applying these undiluted essential oils to your skin.

How to Use Essential Oils Aromatically

Knowing how to use essential oils aromatically helps you use those famous aromas to their full potential. Their powerful scents can evoke strong emotional, mental and even physical reactions. That’s because our smell receptors connect directly to where your emotions and memories are stored in your brain’s limbic system.

There are countless ways to use essential oils aromatically. The simplest way is to put a few drops into the palms of your hands, then cup your hands around your mouth and nose and inhale, breathing deeply to allow your receptors to absorb the oil’s aroma. You can also mix oils in a spray bottle with water and use it to spritz surfaces, furniture, linens and the inside of your car.

Here are some other ways you can use essential oils aromatically.

How Do You Diffuse Essential Oils?

To diffuse essential oils, you can add 8–20 drops to a water oil diffuser. With a diffuser, you can create any atmosphere you like—cozy and calming or grounding and invigorating. Here are a few tips if you’re pulling your first diffuser out of its box.

Find the best location for your diffuser
You’ll need to place the diffuser near an outlet, unless yours runs on batteries. Choose an open area where the diffuser has the most access to the space. Don’t place it near a fan or heat source and avoid direct sunlight if possible. These outside elements can affect the potency of the oils. Make sure the diffuser is kept out of the reach of small children.

Check the instructions on your diffuser
Review any directions that come with the diffuser and on your oil label. Look especially at the ratios of oil to water to know how to get the most aroma from your diffuser.

Avoid overfilling the diffuser
Use only as much water your diffuser can handle or your diffuser may not function the way it should.

What to do if you don’t have a diffuser
 A DIY workaround when you don’t have a diffuser is to simply add a couple drops of your favourite oil to a cotton ball and place it wherever you think it would best disperse the scent. Over a vent can help you circulate the scents you love so they fill your home or workspace.

Effective Ways to Use Essential Oils Aromatically

You’ll discover countless effective ways to use essential oils aromatically. Even absorbed from the air, you’ll find that essential oils can have a dramatic effect on your environment. That’s because the scent you’re inhaling contains small particles of the oil itself, bringing with them the oil’s benefits as well as its aroma. Here are effective ways to use essential oils aromatically.

Inhale directly
You can breathe in the oil’s aroma directly from the bottle or by dripping some into your hands and cupping them over your mouth and nose while you breathe deeply.

Use a diffuser
This is perhaps the most effective way to disperse an essential oil’s scent throughout your work or living space

Add to your surfaces
Essential oils can give your pillowcases, sheets or clothes a calming, soothing scent. Simply drop the oil onto a tissue and then brush the tissue over the clothes or linens. Or drop oils onto a wool dryer ball before tossing it in the dryer with your clothes.

Use Steam
Boil a pot of water, remove it from its heat source, then add a couple drops of essential oil. Lean over the pot and drape a towel over your head to create a tent that captures the steam as you lower your face close to the water and inhale deeply.

Apply like purfume
Turn heads by dabbing a drop of your go-to oil on your wrist, behind the ears or on the neck to create your own personal fragrance. Dilute as needed with a carrier oil, such as olive oil, according to label directions.

Mix with your DIY cleaners
Add oils to your household cleaners so you can enjoy their fragrance while you make your space sparkle.

How to Use Essential Oils Topically on Skin

Using essential oils topically on skin is another popular application method. Oils absorb easily into the skin, so you can quickly and directly enjoy their beneficial properties. When applied topically, essential oils can improve the appearance of healthy-looking skin. Mix them with your favourite cosmetics to include them in your skin care routine. Add them to carrier oils to take a massage to the next level, making it that much more soothing or invigorating, depending on the oils you use. A few drops have the power to transform a warm bath or hot shower into a spa-like experience.

Knowing how potent essential oils can be, remember to always read label instructions before applying a new oil topically. Look for warnings about photosensitivity and dilution and, as mentioned earlier, always start small.

How Much Essential Oil Should I Use on My Skin?

Remembering how potent essential oils can be will help you know how much essential oil you should use on your skin. When applying a new oil, whether you’re using it topically or using another application method, check the label and follow the directions. Look for warnings about photosensitivity and dilution and, as mentioned earlier, always start small.

Many oils can be applied directly to the skin when diluted with a carrier oil like olive oil—usually to soothe fatigued muscles or for skincare. Water doesn’t mix well with essential oils and isn’t a good way to dilute. For topical applications to the skin, you’ll usually want to mix one to three drops of essential oil with one teaspoon of a carrier oil, unless the label recommends a different ratio. For larger applications, like a massage, you might want to lower that to one drop for every teaspoon of carrier oil.

Bear in mind that the effects from topically applying essential oils to your skin can last for a few hours. If you’re test-driving a new oil, apply small amounts of the oil during the day. Give yourself a few hours between applications to see if you have a reaction to the oil. With their high levels of concentration, essential oils can irritate your skin if you don’t apply them correctly.

Where Should I Put Essential Oils on Your Body?

There are many beneficial areas of your body where you can apply essential oils. You can gently rub oil into places such as your neck, forehead, temples, wrists, chest and stomach. This also includes extremities like your arms, legs and the bottoms of your feet. In fact, the bottoms of your feet are one of the safest places to apply essential oils topically.

There are a few areas where you shouldn’t put essential oils on your body. You’ll want to avoid your eyes, ears, nose and the skin around them or places where the skin is sensitive.

How to Blend Essential Oils for Topical Use

Learning how to blend essential oils for topical use frees you to mix and mingle the oils you love the most so you can create unique, personalized scents your skin will love, too.

One important factor to consider is how potent are the oils in your blend? Some oils are gentle enough to be applied directly to the skin. Others require dilution before they’re safe for topical use. Always be aware of the safe handling procedures for any oils you put into a blend. Read the labels and follow the instructions provided.

If dilution is required, use a carrier oil. In a blend like that, the carrier oil should make up the greater part with only a small percentage being essential oils.

It’s also critical to know that some oils, especially citrus oils, can cause temporary photosensitivity. Any blend that includes these oils will also likely cause photosensitivity. If applied to the skin, avoid sunlight for the next 12 hours just to be safe.

If you’re not sure how your skin will react to a blend, simply perform a patch test. A patch test involves applying a small amount of an essential oil or oil blend to the inside of your forearm. Then you wait an hour or two to see if your skin reacts to it. If there is no reaction, then you’re free to move forward with applying that essential oil blend to your skin.

How to Use Essential Oils Internally

Did you know you can use some essential oils internally? With aromatic and topical oil applications, the oil has to penetrate the skin or other obstacles so we can enjoy their benefits. By ingesting the oils, we can introduce those benefits directly to the body.

Please note that not all oils are fit for internal use, so always check the label instructions to see if the oil is safe for ingestion. If it doesn’t mention internal use, then simply assume the oil is meant for aromatic and topical application. As for those oils that are safe for internal use, they have a variety of uses you’ll want to try. When you do, check the label directions for the amounts to use and make sure you never exceed them.

Add to a glass of water
Add a drop or two of your favourite essential oil to water to make every sip satisfying.

Take in a capsule
Put a few drops of essential oil into a vegetable capsule and take with water.

Spice up your favourite dish
Add essential oils to give your favourite dishes an array of rich, unique flavors.

Drop directly onto your tongue
You can drip these oils directly onto your tongue to leave a good taste in your mouth.

Can You ingest Essential Oil Safely?

Yes, you can safely ingest some essential oils. Oils you can take internally make it easy to add a splash of flavor to your food and drinks. You can also take these oils in a capsule as a dietary supplement.

Many people enjoy cooking and baking with essential oils. However, you should always be careful whenever you add a new ingredient to your recipe, such as essential oils. Review any labels that come with the oil and make sure it says that the oil is safe for internal use. Also remember to only use a little at a time. You can always add more oil if you think the dish or beverage needs more of a kick!

Essential Oil Safety FAQ

Using essential oils can seem complicated and confusing. That’s why we published a page dedicated to answering your questions about essential oil safety. Here are a few answers to questions asked by those who are beginning to learn and use essential oils.

Q. What is a carrier oil?
A. A carrier oil is a neutral, non-aromatic, plant-derived oil such as coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, etc. Carrier oils can be used to dilute essential oils to ensure that they are comfortable and safe for topical application to the skin.

 To perform a patch test, apply 1¬–2 drops of essential oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Observe that area of skin over the course of 1–2 hours for any noticeable reaction. Normally any reactions will occur within 5¬¬–10 minutes. If you experience a hot or burning sensation or develop a rash, add a carrier oil to the affected area as often as needed.

Q. What is a "hot" oil?
A. Hot oils are any essential oils that create a hot or warming sensation when applied to the skin. Some examples of hot oils include cinnamon bark, clove, lemongrass, oregano and thyme. It’s recommended that you use a patch test on these or any new oils you intend to use topically.

Q. What if I experience skin discomfort or irritation after applying an essential oil topically to my skin?
A. If you feel any discomfort or irritation, stop using the essential oil and apply a carrier oil to the affected area. There are some documents that suggest diluting essential oils with water. Unfortunately, water actually drives oil into the skin and eyes. Avoid using water in an attempt to flush the oil off of the skin; this may increase discomfort. If all you have on hand is water, you can use it in place of a carrier oil. In this case, focus on flushing the affected area with a large amount of water with consistent flow. If an essential oil gets in your eye, flush it out using a carrier oil as quickly as possible to alleviate any discomfort. If eye discomfort does not subside within five minutes, seek medical attention.

Q. Can essential oils be applied to sensitive areas?
A. Avoid contacting sensitive areas such as eyes, ears, genitals and mucous membranes with essential oils.

Q. How often can I apply essential oils? How much should I use?
A. Follow the proper usage instructions printed on each essential oil label. Essential oils can be very powerful, so start with a small amount and go slow. Excessive use of essential oils may increase your risk of having an adverse reaction. In most cases, 1–2 drops are adequate—using more may be a waste of the oil. Depending on the essential oil, you can gradually build up to 3¬–4 uses per day, if desired.

Q. Can I use essential oils during pregnancy or when I’m nursing?
A. As with any medical condition, it’s recommended that prior to using essential oils you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained health care advisor who is experienced in essential oil usage.

Q. Can children use essential oils?
A. Many essential oils are appropriate for use on children but should be diluted with a carrier oil prior to use.

Q. Should I avoid exposure to the sun after using essential oils?
A. Some essential oils, especially citrus oils, contain natural molecules that react with sunlight (UV light) and cause a sensitivity reaction. Any essential oils or blends that contain these compounds should come with a warning to avoid sun or any other UV light for 12 to 48 hours after applying.

Q. Should I use essential oils if I have a medical condition? Can essential oils interact with prescription medications?
A. If you have a disease or medical condition or are using a prescription medication, it’s recommended that prior to using an essential oil you consult with a health care advisor who has experience with essential oils. Seek the advice of the prescribing physician and a pharmacist about potential interactions between any medication and essential oils.

How to Cope With Fall Anxiety

Courtesy of the New York Times

As the most carefree weeks of the year draw to a close, pay close attention to your emotions. They might be telling you something useful.
So what’s the best way to accept unwelcome feelings? “Take a breath and actually allow those thoughts to rise to the surface,” said Tracy Dennis-Tiwary, a psychologist and the director of the emotion regulation lab at Hunter College in New York City. It may help to share them with friends or write them down in a journal. It’s “about allowing yourself to let that inner dialogue come out,” she said.

Ask yourself what these negative emotions can do for you

There’s another big reason not to suppress your feelings: “Difficult emotions have value,” Dr. Dennis-Tiwary said, because they provide us with information about our wants, needs and values. When we bottle them up, she said, “we lose the data that they are giving us.”
Take the anxiety I’ve felt when thinking about the upcoming autumn chaos. It might be unpleasant, Dr. Dennis-Tiwary said, but I can use it to help me plan for the future and manage the uncertainty. Last week, while worrying over how I was going to make all of my work deadlines in September while navigating my children’s busy after-school schedules, I decided it would be smart to hire an afternoon babysitter — and I started the process of finding one. My anxiety helped me identify that I had an unmet need (support) and motivated me to brainstorm solutions for addressing it (hiring a babysitter). Anxiety prompts us to ask: “What can you do now that will help you feel like you’re a bit more in control of the situation?” Dr. Harden Bradford said.

End-of-summer sadness also provides us with useful data, Dr. Dennis-Tiwary added. “It’s information about what we really value and want in our life,” she said, and we can use it to help define our priorities. Try to dig into what, exactly, you’re saddest about losing as summer ends, and see if you can make more time for that in the future, she suggested. Maybe you spent lots of time reading fiction in your downtime this summer, and you are upset that might end — is there anything you can do to incorporate more time into your fall schedule for leisure reading?

If your anxiety or sadness revolves around an issue that feels out of your control, try to identify small things you can address. A few years ago, Dr. Dennis-Tiwary’s partner faced serious challenges at work that were largely out of his control, and his stress even affected Dr. Dennis-Tiwary’s own mental health. “I was feeling higher levels of anxiety than I’d felt in a long, long time,” she said. She tried to zero in on aspects of the situation that she could change, but she realized that she could be more helpful by being a supportive partner. “I decided that I would make a plan to spend extra time just being there to listen to him,” she said. “It gave me a sense of purpose and strengthened our relationship, and it actually helped me get through it.”

When feelings overwhelm, connect to the present

Of course, anxiety isn’t always helpful, Dr. Dennis-Tiwary said. Sometimes it can feel all-consuming. If that’s true for you, she said, take time to connect to the present in a way you enjoy — perhaps by taking a walk, gardening, talking to a therapist or doing yoga or breathing exercises.

Dr. David suggested framing your feelings as observations. When we think or say things like “I am sad” or “I am anxious,” we imply that these feelings are who we are, and that they are all-encompassing, she said. “That is a kind of de facto imprisonment,” she said, “because you’re defining yourself by that difficult emotion and there’s no space for the other parts of yourself to come forward.” Instead, try saying something like “I’m noticing that I’m feeling sad” or “I’m noticing feelings of anxiety come up.” When we reframe feelings this way, we can create space for progress, she said.

As I enjoy these last few weeks of summer, I will remember that my feelings of loss and worry are normal, even helpful. In the coming weeks, I’ll try to dig into my emotions to learn a bit more about myself and identify steps I can take to make the fall feel a little less scary and a little more welcoming. But I’m still steering clear of pumpkin spice treats.

Are you exhausted? Do you live in a haze of brain fog? Do you need to nap every afternoon?

Do you feel weak and listless, unable to accomplish tasks? Are you battling caffeine and sugar addiction? You need the Energy Challenge! Join us in September!

So what makes us so sluggish? Obviously, there can be many factors, but there are a few common, main culprits. 

1. Toxic overload slowing down our body's processes. 
2. Little or no nutritional fuel to help us go. 
3. Deficiency in vitamins that help our brain to function and direct the rest of our systems.

Today, our story looks completely different. And we want you to experience that same vibrance and freedom!

September 1-30 we will be taking three core supplements that fuel us with what we need to start our bodies down a new path. We have all kinds of wonderful things to teach you about these three, but basically they represent antioxidant power to flush out toxic overload, a flood of easy to absorb nutrients for the most exhausted bodies, and some targeted support for brain and body function. All without crazy caffeine jitters and crashes or harsh cleansing. All convenient and easy. All yummy.

You will be ordering:

• Ningxia Red

• Super B

• Ningxia Nitro

Make sure that if you have more than one person in your home participating, you get enough for each family member!

• One 30 count box of packets will serve 4 oz. per day for one person or 2 oz. for two people for the duration of the challenge.

• A 2-pack of bottles will cover one person for 2oz., and you'll need a 4-pack for two people to do the 15 days. You'll have some left over in both cases!

September 1-30 the challenge begins as we all take our products and watch how it affects our energy levels! There will be giveaways, videos, and more while you track your progress!

Each day you will:

• Drink 2-4 ounces of Ningxia Red

• Drink a tube of Ningxia Nitro

• Take 2 Super B tablets These are best taken morning to early afternoon so your energy boost is focused on daytime hours and not when trying to sleep!

Our Facebook community is currently going through a Sleep Challenge and you're welcome to join the group at any time while you wait for this challenge to begin! We'll be educating about the science of these products, our results, and how these products work for us.

10 Powerful Rituals For Autumn Equinox: Celebrating The End Of Summer

/ By



We are so excited that autumn is here! As the world begins to grow dark, we want to take some time to reflect on what the change of season means in our lives. Remember that all of life is cyclical, and endings and beginnings are always occurring around us. Over the next few days, we’ve got a list of some of our favorite rituals for autumn equinox to help you celebrate the end of summer.
 

What is the Autumn Equinox?

The autumnal equinox is a moment in the year when day and night are exactly equal. It is heralded by the Sun’s passage across the celestial equator, an event that occurs about September 22 or 23 in the Northern Hemisphere and about March 21 or 22 in the Southern Hemisphere. This event marks the beginning of autumn, which lasts until winter solstice.

The Autumn Equinox inspires us to reflect upon and feel gratitude for the abundance in our lives. It’s a beautiful time to share nature’s plenty with friends and loved ones, with dishes built around seasonal ingredients like apples, pumpkins, squash, grapes, and grains. 

The autumn equinox, also known as Mabon is a mid-harvest festival also known as the second harvest that is celebrated with communal feasting, dancing, and rituals for autumn equinox to channel the new energy of the changing seasons.

Each season of our lives has its own wisdom, just as different energies flow through us at different times of the year. Celebrating each season of the Wheel of the Year will help nurture your growth physically, mentally and emotionally through the changing seasons of your life. And by aligning your activities with the cycles of nature, you’ll find a better balance in your life and be able to make time for yourself as well as others when it’s needed most.

The Wheel of the Year is a guide for living. It provides us with a framework to help us live our lives in balance. This circle of time allows us to honor and celebrate our spiritual heritage, as well as connect with nature’s cycles.

10 Rituals for Autumn Equinox

Below you’ll find my 10 favorite rituals for autumn equinox to mark the change from summer to autumn

1) Watch the Sunset

One of my favorite rituals for autumn equinox is to honor and welcome the transition of the seasons by sitting quietly on the evening of the equinox to watch the sunset. Be present to all your senses as you watch and feel gratitude for the sun’s life-giving energy as it sinks lower in the sky. 

Pay close attention to what happens when night falls: what do you see, hear, or smell? Maybe it’s bugs singing or stars twinkling high in the sky or even smoky scents from backyard fire pits. 

Speak words of love and praise aloud to the darkness. Share what you love about it. What you’re ready for. What calls to you about this time of year? If you feel called, leave an intuitive offering out for it — food, a poem, a painting, anything that feels good to you. Close your ritual with a few deep breaths and spend some time journaling to process your experience

2) Spend Time in Nature

Spending some time alone in nature can be one of the most sacred rituals for autumn equinox. Sitting in a quiet place and taking time to reflect on the seasons passing by is one of the best ways to reconnect with nature. You can use this time to meditate, pray or just be in silence. Paying attention to the subtle changes in nature is a great way to feel connected with it and notice how all things ebb and flow. 

Being out among trees, birds and other wildlife can bring us back in touch with our own humanity. When we take the time to connect with nature, we’re reminded that life is more than just our own personal struggles. And by spending some time in the great outdoors, we can also help reduce stress and anxiety.

3) Cook a Nourishing Meal with Seasonal Vegetables

On the autumn equinox, we celebrate the harvest and honor our connection with the earth. Autumn is also a time to spend time with family and friends, to reconnect with your body and appreciate its rhythms. A great way to honor this season is by preparing a ritual meal with seasonal ingredients. 

I like cooking healthful meals as a way to celebrate the seasons. This helps me feel grounded and connected with my body, my family and the earth. Cooking healthy food can also be a way to reduce stress as it requires focus and attention. It’s important to prepare the meal mindfully and with intention. When you take the time to cook a meal and share it with loved ones, you can feel more connected.

Here are some tips:

4) Perform a Release Ritual

Perform a release ritual where you make a list of all the things you want to leave in the past. This can be a very powerful way to release the past and let go. The ritual could involve burning the paper or burying it in a box. This is a great way to let go of the things that aren’t serving you. It can also be very healing and empowering.

5) Bathe with Herbs

To celebrate the equinox, take a ritual bath using fresh herbs from your garden. This is a wonderful way to connect with the earth and the natural world (and maybe even celebrate something else that’s sacred to you). 
You can make your own bath salts with added herbs from your garden. No salts? That’s okay, simply use some fresh or dried herbs you foraged or grew. This is a wonderful way to connect with the earth and the natural world, allowing you to align yourself with this autumnal energy.

 The Outdoor Apothecary

6) Burn Herbal Incense Bundles

Burn herbal incense bundles (or diffuse essential oils to avoid the lung irritation of smoke)  as a ritual for autumn equinox. Using incense to purify the spirit and start fresh is a tradition as old as humankind. Incense invokes protection and peace, inviting us to open our hearts and minds. As we turn inward for fall and winter, we can look to incense to rejuvenate our energy field by letting go of patterns that no longer serve us.

7) Observe and Reflect on Seasonal Shifts

During the season of Autumn and especially during the Autumnal Equinox, make time to observe the natural phenomena that occur at the change of seasons. Use these observations as cues to reflect inward and discover bits of personal wisdom that aid you in navigating your own life.

In autumn, nature is aging gracefully and releasing its hold on summer’s bounty. Draw inspiration from this process to embrace your own aging, as well as aging within your relationships, and even your work. This way of observing nature helps us to reconnect with what matters most: ourselves, the Earth, and those around us.

Find a cozy spot to curl up, reflect on your personal harvests, and take stock of what you have nurtured this year. Notice how that area of your life has evolved since spring. Make some notes about intentions for fall, so you can reflect on them at the winter solstice.

Mabon Diffuser Blend

Many cultures see the second harvest (after the first harvest Lammas) and equinox as a time for giving thanks. This time of year is when farmers know how well their summer crops did, and how well fed their animals have become. This determines whether you and your family would have enough food for the winter. That is why people used to give thanks around this time, thanks for their crops, and animals, and food.

No matter how you view this time of year, there is a certain celebratory air about the abundance of food and the promise of meals to come. 

Use this diffuser blend to celebrate all this season has to offer.

10 Simple Ways to Mindfully Transition from Summer to Fall

1. Journal for a Fresh Start

Fall marks a new beginning and a time for change. So, this is the perfect time to realign with your intentions for the year. 
It’s also a good time to look back and reflect on your summer and write about all your memories so you can mindfully close that chapter and focus on the present moment. 
These journal prompts for a fresh start will help you get realigned for the Fall season.

               

2. Create a Fall Bucket List


What would make you happy, help you become your best self, and make the most of what the fall season has to offer?

Create a Fall bucket list of all the seasonal activities you want to take part in this time of the year.

You can add activities like apple picking, fall baking, cozying up with a warm drink, and more. Check out this ultimate Fall bucket list to give you some ideas.

3. Make a Fall Vision Board

Who says you have to create a vision board once a year? I enjoy creating a new vision board every season where I put my intentions and goals for that season. I like to look at it every day so I can really envision what I want a particular season to look like.

You can also bring your Fall bucket list to life with images.

           

4. Organize and Refresh Your Space
