Back in October I read about half of High Performance Habits. It got a little heavy, and it was best I come back to it another time. That time is now! I picked up where I left off and timing for me is much better! It is a great book and I am learning new habits to help propel my business and life.
Think and Grow Rich, this is an old school personal development book. It was really good and brought a different way of thinking. I knock out a book per month, and this one didn’t disappoint.
Currently reading Anxious for Nothing and dang, it’s good and just what I needed right now! This one will be ongoing for a few months since it’s the book we are currently reading for my bible study group!
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!
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!
Truth be told, I am quite complicated, we all are. We all have our own issues, problems, fears, stressors, anxieties, etc. I could go on and on. But, I’m here to tell you—the simpler you can make things that you CAN control, the better off you (plus everyone around you) will be.
We put so much pressure on ourselves every single day. So, let’s pump the breaks for a sec.
There is beauty in simplicity and calm is a superpower, I promise. Give yourself some margin, but still get after it.
You are doing just fine. If you can make one, yes, one simple change a day or even a month that will impact your health+wellbeing for the better, and that’s AWESOME. Don’t get down on yourself!
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
There are a couple of things that are non-negotiable for me, sleep and routine. They set you up for success and set the tone for all areas of life. Every single morning looks almost identical for me.
My morning routine actually starts the night before, and I am not even going to tell you it is easy…but no phone for at least 30 minutes before lights out. We are all guilty of mindless scrolling, and it’s the biggest time waster ever. I follow this into my morning. I want to be a dictator of my time, not a reactor. Plus, I want to make the most of my time and be as productive as possible.
I am so happy you’ve stopped by!
I am here to fill your soul with some good vibes, health+wellness, damn good recipes, (duh, I got you girl, no one’s got time for a bad recipe) some safe beauty talk, inspiration, and all things beautiful. It’s likely you might not agree with some of the things I talk about, like, or discuss, and that is quite alright. We are allowed to have different opinions/views/beliefs and still respect each other. Remember, good vibes only.
I am a true believer that simple is beautiful and (healthy) chocolate cures a lot of things. I also believe in making yourself your number one priority, because if you don’t show up for yourself, you can’t show up for others. Nourishing and caring for your body is the key act of self love. So, do things that make you feel amazing, don’t get all caught up in the small stuff. Make a conscious effort do be better and do better every day. It’s about progress, not perfection.
