High Vibes

If you’ve been around long, you know that there is absolutely no time for bad vibes over here. Coming into a new year can always be refreshing and overwhelming at the same time. You feel me?!

So, here are some of my instant high vibe essentials to help keep you on track and give your life a boost in the right direction! 

 

Water

 

Drink lots and lots of it. Get yourself a reusable stainless steel or glass bottle, my favs are linked below!  Water is an essential life-source and needed throughout your body for so many things. I have said it time and time again, it makes your skin glow! Yes, please.

Food

 

Choose foods that make you feel energized+vibrant+beautiful. Always choose unprocessed, REAL food. Yes, organic is best in most cases. But, if that is not an option or accessible, non-organic is better than processed. Good food=good mood. What you eat not only has an impact on your well being, but also your skin!

Positive People

 

Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people. If you are surrounding yourself with negative people or people who don’t support your visions+goals+dreams…they’ve 100% got to go. Drop ’em like they’re hot–they are serving you absolutely no purpose if they aren’t helping you be your best self. Real winners pull for each other and cheer for you! 

 

Rituals

 

There are so many things that you could slow down, and take time to do each day. Routine is necessary for me, and some of my favorite self-care rituals are my daily breakfast smoothie, morning meditation (still very new to me, 23 days strong), my skincare routine, daily movement, dry brushing+a long bath. These are all wonderful rituals that make you slow down and bring awareness to the small things. You could do journaling+devotion+morning quiet time with your tea/coffee. There are so many things that would be good for your mind+body+soul and overall vibe. Find something that works for you, and make an appointment with yourself. You deserve it! 

 

Movement

 

Find a source of movement that you enjoy and do it a lot. Endorphins are a real thing, y’all. They literally make you feel SO damn good. Seriously, like a drug. Once you get going, you will crave the way you feel so much that it will be a part of your daily lifestyle.

 

Visions+goals+dreams

 

Write them down+tell someone who supports you. This will give you something to work toward and you can visualize yourself achieving them. Don’t forget to take action though–that is key. Winners dwell on the rewards of success rather than the penalties of failure. What is the worse thing that could happen?! Get after it, girl! 

 

Personal Development

 

Do something every day to grow your mind. That could be reading a chapter out of a book, or putting a podcast on during mindless tasks, or investing in yourself through a course. Just do it. Check out my November or December Fav’s post to see some podcast recommendations! Linked below are some great books to help move your life forward. I’m currently reading The Slight Edge.

 

Plan your week

 

Write down your activities, either in your cell phone calendar or a physical planner. This year I gave up a paper planner and use my Google calendar and my Daily Deposit. My friend, Macy created the Daily Deposit and it’s perfect. There is a spot for Gratitude, Personal Development, Game Day List, Affirmations, and a Notes page. I love having a place to write everything down and mark it off.  I like to take a look at both my phone and Daily Deposit on Sunday to make sure everything is mapped out and things are planned for the week: appointments, events, business activities, meetings, dinners, etc. This ensures that you are very intentional with your time.

5 Ways To Step-up Your Wellbeing This Spring

Spring time always brings a sense of refresh and renew over here! Lots of new energy coming out of winter. The flowers are blooming, sun is shining and we are living our best lives with the longer days!

A lot of times we are conditioned to think we need to “spring clean” every area of our lives or make drastic changes when this time of the year rolls around. We actually are better served when we make small changes that can become a lifestyle of healthier habits. I am a big believer in making small, actionable shifts in our daily activities to create habits that will last a lifetime!

Self-Tan Routine, The Safer Way

Recently over on insta stories I was raving about my new favorite safer self-tanner, Beauty By Earth. Last spring+summer I used another safer brand called Chocolate Sun that I liked ok, but didn’t love. So, this year I was determined to find one that performed better than Chocolate Sun and was also safe!

After two applications, I can say Beauty By Earth is a WIN in my book. It gives you a nice, even natural glow with some color, but not turning you orange. It also doesn’t smell like most sunless tanners do.

The key to a successful sunless tan is all in the routine. It may seem like a lot, but seriously doesn’t take that much time and is so worth it! This is the exact routine I have been following for a VERY LONG time and it works.

2019 Dirty Dozen + Clean Fifteen, and why you should care.

If you aren’t familiar with the Environmental Working Group, click here to learn who they are and what they do! To sum it up, the EWG is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment.  That could be an entire blog post itself, but I will spare you!

So, lets get to it…the EWG has updated their dirty dozen and clean fifteen list. This list includes the top twelve conventional (not organic) fruits and veggies that have the highest amounts of pesticide residue. You will want to try (keyword, try) to always buy the items on that list organic. It has changed a tiny bit from last year, so click here to download a pdf to either print or screen shot to save on your phone when grocery shopping!
