My Morning routine For Positivity & Light

When the sound of your alarm wakes you buzzz buzzz buzzz most people want to throw it across the room because they haven’t gotten enough sleep. Well, for me this could not be farther from the truth because I do not use an alarm to get up unless I know I need to be somewhere at a certain time. If you have an unfortunate 9 to 5 job and, you need an alarm set something soothing that will wake you up. I have a few songs such as Moon River, Summertime on my mind, something from Golden Lights but, I chose it so that it will be an easy transition to wake up. I always hear my alarm go off so, to those that never hear theirs I guess just set it louder and on vibrate.

Once you are awake turn on your favorite chilled out vibes song or a YouTube video. If you have roommate pop on those headphones so, you don’t disturb them. Head into the kitchen fill a very large mason jar or glass of water and sip on it while you listen to music or video. If you are oil pulling leave yourself 20 minutes before you have the water. While oil pulling I will watch YouTube videos or check emails etc. I check all my social media, Poshmark, and emails and of course reply. This may take awhile for me so, if you have work earlier in the morning and commute you may want to do this on the bus. My commute is very short downstairs to my office. I will lie in bed for about an hour waking up when my body feels it should get up. This morning I am pet sitting and I woke naturally at about 7:20 a.m. to feed the dogs. Then, I sat outside in the sunroom and, started my morning routine of looking through everything and, starting to work. My morning can vary quite drastically depending on if I am pet sitting, on a business trip, or just at home.

While watching YouTube videos I will have my fruit breakfast of a mono meal like mangoes or a smoothie. After eating my breakfast I will brush my teeth and, get my day started. I am usually not in a rush but, if I am I pick out my outfit the night before and, have it ready to go. If I am going somewhere special or feel like dressing up I will have saved hairstyles I want to do and a youtube makeup video. If I am filming a makeup video that is how my makeup gets done for the day. I always allot myself enough time in the morning to get ready so I am not rushed. Whether I need to wake up 30 minutes before or three hours before I need to be somewhere I am up and, ready to go. I never se my alarm to snooze and, that goes for my body alarm as well, if my body wants me up and moving I am up and moving.

Once I am all ready which most of the time is still in my pajamas I start working. Usually I will film or edit a video. While the video is rendering I will write a blog post, film, share my Poshmark closet, aor list on Poshmark. If I had been to a book sale I will continue to list books and get them ready to ship out.

That is what my morning usually consists of positive intent for the day and, a great breakfast! Throughout my day I make sure to move and I try to walk around the park at least three times a week. I forgot to mention I take Vitamin D3 an B-12. Share your morning routine or something you liked,enjoyed from my morning routine. See you all bright and early tomorrow where I discuss the lymphatic system and, how important it is for your health.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Wanderlust: Summer Palnning|Life Goals|Working Goals

Hello Loves,

This is going to prove to be an exciting summer with the prospect of growing all of my businesses and, a bit of traveling. Ahh, the thrill of the unknown and, new places to venture. Today, is a working/planning day for me as I need to increase my sales on Poshmark & Amazon. Along with those business goals I am also, trying to increase my views for my YouTube channel and of course my blog. With my new goals I am a little jumbled with how to get this all accomplished and, of course, intertwine my healthy life & helping the planet goals. Will all this on my mind, I have found I have become more exhausted and, have learned to listen to my body. One of the main reasons I am “trying” to work from home is because I do not have the energy for a normal 9 to 5 job. Some days I am thoroughly exhausted and I need a mid-day nap or a quick break. I am strategizing not only accomplishing my work goals but, taking my life & health goals into consideration. I would say most of the time we do not take care of ourselves and, it leads to health problems later on in life. I want to take care of myself now instead of 30 years down the road when I have worked myself down along with my health. Healing myself from the inside out is my main goal for my life right now. I follow many Vegan YouTubers and, when I wake up in the morning I look forward to watching their videos. Mel, from Raw Nourishment always seems to have the perfect video for what I need to hear that day. Her recent video about making a list and manifesting what you want in your life was just right. Although, her video was about her vegan boyfriend, that is not a high priority on my list this year because I am learning to heal my body, grow my businesses, and love the person I am. Each day I have grown to learn more about myself or my body and, it is fascinating. I no longer worry about what people think of me I am just myself and, I Love it. It is hard to express the change in the way I am because it is not  a physical change but, more of a self accepting change. I feel I have always been myself but, I feel I have actually embraced it. I am more determined and focused to accomplish my goals and aspirations. I am self aware and aware of the disturbance we are putting our planet through. Recently, I have talked about ethical clothing and moving my Poshmark closet into an ethical clothing closet and, possibly my own boutique. Growing my businesses helps me to grow as a person and move forward in my life. In the next two years I would like to get my own place and, travel. To be able to travel & get my own place I need to work ten times harder and longer to accomplish that. I think that everything that I need to get done I will and, my life will fold out when I least expect it to. Let me know how you are feeling and, if you have become enlightened within yourself. Thank you for taking the time to read and, if you enjoyed it please share it would mean a great deal to me.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

How To Cope With Having A Bad Day

Hello Loves,

I know some of us get into a bit of a day slump and just tend to get a little emotional. This is a rare occasion for me and usually takes me off guard. But, with having so many happy and great days you are bound to have a few with hiccups. Today was not a bad day and, nothing set me off specifically except the connection of me feeling like a burden on everyone. Lately, I have been feeling as though it is a chore to talk to me and, I’m sure most of us feel like that on occasion. I lead a great life with entrepreneurial pursuits that I absolutely love. So, how do we pull ourselves out of this weird funk that is not brought on by anything specific…

  1. You are feeling that way for a reason so let yourself feel
  2. Now that you have had time to cope with your feelings learn from it
  3. What do you want to do, are there changes you need to make
  4. Do you- You are your own person so, do what you love
  5. Now take yourself away from the funk by reading, watching a movie, or doing something you love to do.
  6. Take a walk and listen to music
  7. Deal with it and move forward

My number 7 is happing right now by writing about it, because that is how I work out things. Do what makes you feel good and, don’t waste your day in a funk.

” We are merely humans, our minds wander, our hearts grow, we long to explore, and with so many emotions we are bound to fall into the quickening sand; it is our slow adjustments that bring us back to solid ground.”

Maintenance-Make The Time

Hello Loves,

For the past two days I have been doing a little body maintenance. Yesterday I was waxing my legs and, today I will be doing my nails. This may seem like a regular thing on your schedule but, for me these things always take the back burner because I will always put work first. After being really annoyed that my legs had hair on them ( as I am not a fan of hair on my legs at all) I decided I was going to wax my legs. If you have waxed yourself before you know that it is super time consuming so, you must commit at least 3 hours to have available to wax. And now after I am done typing this I will be doing my nails. If you read my previous posts you will know I am looking at getting some shampoos and vegan maintenance items. I decided that I needed to take the time to take care of myself and, to adjust the way I was taking care of my body. I am going to be working on fitting in yoga twice a day and doing something for myself once or twice a week. It is so important to take time to pamper and, nourish our bodies. I had been putting this all off for about 3 weeks and, not realizing that I need to make time for me. The whole point of this post is to realize that you too are important and, need to take the time to do maintenance on yourself. If you are interested in hearing about what vegan products I am using now to how I would like to become more natural please let me know in the comments below. I’d love to chat with you all.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
