New Beginnings.

It’s a new year. A time for forming a new mold to who we are and how we see ourselves. I know some people think resolutions are pointless and cheesy and stupid- but I like them. And I think it’s important to encourage the people in your life who make them. It bothers me when people say “Oh, everyone will be out of the gym by February”, that negative thinking doesn’t help anyone! Why discourage people trying to improve themselves?

Whether your goals are to improve relationships, get healthier, be more productive with your time, study smarter, read more books, go on adventures, act more genuinely, have more “me” time-whatever it may be-encourage yourself, encourage others. Breaking bad habits sucks. No one says it will be easy, but it sure is worth it.

Some people in your life may want explanations for your changes, but I honestly do not think you have to give one. If you want to be a different person, you shouldn’t have to explain yourself. We’re all on a journey to become the best we can be, as individuals, and sometimes making these changes you want to tell people and have people be involved- that is great! But some people want to do it alone, and not have to talk to others about it-that is okay too.

Know that this year, 2016, can be anything you make it. Become extremely connected to yourself, and hold yourself accountable! I believe that if you work hard, and don’t cheat yourself, you will be extremely impressed with who you become:-)

Until next time,

A Gentle Transition Into Fall

Oh how fall is creeping around the corner! The days are getting busier and the nights darker. I think at each season, it’s important to reflect and set goals. Hopefully this guide helps you into the transition of fall

tumblr_mw3oi4G52d1slfr2co1_500

  • right as you wake up, set your mind into the right place. think of what you want to get out of the day. Carpe Diem!
  • warmth is needed. (tea!) (socks!)
  • look back at your goals. it’s a new season, ask yourself:

-what excites me in my life? what doesn’t?

-are the people in my life supporting me and making me a better person? am i?

-am i fully present during my day? (at work/school, when i talk to others)

-am i exerting my body daily? what about incorporating healing & fresh foods in my diet daily?

-are my thoughts primarily positive? am i releasing & forgiving negative thoughts that enter my mind?

Until next time,

Claire

Date night for…one?

You are beautiful bunch of molecules, baby baby. And you work mega hard. I think it’s time to treat yo self.

Sometimes, you just need to pamper yourself, and i’m all for it. Before you can start anything, turn off all distractions. Make sure you have all work out of the way, dishwasher started, phone off. Now, here is my four step (foolproof) guide to feeling your best self in an evening.

1. TeaseMe. Tea is literally the best thing ever. There are a ridiculous amount of flavors, all awaiting your lips. It is warm & perfect. Grab a cup and drank. It’s warmth will make your tummy happy. If you don’t like tea, I’m sorry but you’re wrong.

2. PamperMe. Our face gets looked at a lot throughout the day. Below is my favorite homemade face scrub recipe, if you have dry skin, work some coconut oil on your face after washing off the scrub. PS: the mask can also be used as a lip scrub. PPS: yes, you can lick it off.

Glow, baby, glow face/lip scrub:

  • 1 spoonful of raw honey (uber hydrating and a natural cleanser) 
  • 2 spoonfuls of sugar (i use coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 spoonful of coconut oil, mashed (glow! soften!)
  • a dash of cinnamon (breakouts be gone) 
  • leave for about five minutes then wash (or lick) off with warm water

3. BatheMe. Start some relaxing wave sounds, get your favorite bubble-soap, and hop in the bath. STFU to people who say that you’re bathing in your own filth. Go, have fun with your cold and wet shower. Grab a book, light some candles, and let your fingers and toes become raisons.

4. RestMe. Beauty sleep is no joke people. I’m guessing you haven’t been getting as many hours on your pillow as you should be. Now that your skin and belly are feeling gorge & glowy, sleep. I hope you dream of rainbows and kittens.

Until next time,

Claire
