If you’re feeling overwhelmed and struggling to find energy, focus, or rhythm

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and struggling to find energy, focus, or rhythm to find your way through the days during this challenging time, here’s a message from our hearts to yours:
We see you. This is hard. Life got really, really extra recently. On top of what was already pretty big for some of us. Tiny actions to take care of yourself count. A little bit of care for yourself makes a big difference in your day, and it adds up to make a difference in your life. 

Start with teeth brushing – take your time with it. Maybe even floss and toss in some mouth wash.
Open the blinds and stare outside til you’re done. See what you notice through the window. There’s a lot of life happening in nature this spring, and a few moments to connect with that is really good medicine for the soul.Schedule making your bed into your day. Even if you just make your bed before it gets dark out it so you have the momentary delight of pulling back the covers when you go to bed. If it feels good, add some essential oil spray or a diffuser next to your bed. Aromatherapy in your nest is everything.

Drink a whole glass of room temp water before noon. You can fill the glass and set it on the counter where you’ll see it. Either take a small sip every time you walk by, every hour, or down it all in one gulp – but try to get it down before noon. Challenge yourself to drink a second glass before 5 pm. It’s a start, love – hyration gives your cells what they need to take care of you in ways you can’t see but you’ll definitely feel.

If you’ve got it in you, put on shoes and a coat and stand outside and breathe fresh air. Even 2 minutes counts.

You can do this. We’re here – we’ll be here, you don’t have to do it alone.
