One of the questions I get asked a lot is "why candles"?
.
I didn't just sit down and think about what type of business I want to start, that will make me more money. It all started as a hobby, in my own kitchen, when I was a stressed out first-time mom. I needed a creative outlet, that made me feel like "me" again. I was getting lost in all the diaper changing, meal-planning and doing other house chores (and postpartum depression is a real thing!). So when I came across a YouTube video of someone talking about benefits of soy candles, I decided to make one for myself and that's how this turned into a hobby and than a legit business.
.
I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit though, since I was probably 3 years old. Pretending to play "store" with my sister and "sell" candies, toys and anything I could find around the house but by nature, I'm very cautious when it comes to taking risks. I need everything planned out and to know what's coming next. That's usually a good thing but can also hold you back. My husband, on the other hand, is a risk taker and also an entrepreneurial spirit. I love that he pushes me to go further (and asking me all the time "when are you gonna make me a millionaire"? 😂). .
.
If you're still reading, thank you for sticking around and hearing my story. 💕 Thank you for all of your support and I'm so excited for all the things to come, for our small business. .

One of the reasons I love Ohio is that we get to have a Fall season (6-month winters not so much 😩) but this is the time I look forward to every year! 🍂 So many activities you get to enjoy with the family (or just your spouse) and just slow down, after a busy summer.
.
Do you get to enjoy Fall season, where you live? .

We view candles as a way to help people change their atmosphere and recharge, and thus we provide both self-care and productivity ideas on our page, as well as honest talk about them. .
So here it is…the last challenge! 👌
.
Challenge 5
THANK YOU note: Think about a person that wouldn’t expect it, and write them a thank you note, text, or dm. Take 5 minutes to write one out, so it is thoughtful and you are not in a rush. .
Maybe it’s an elderly relative that hasn’t heard from anyone in a while, maybe it’s a thoughtful neighbor.
Maybe it’s your mom, or a niece or nephew. Think about how they are special to you and how they brighten your life. Go ahead and send it, and not only will they be happy and touched, but you have done something positive and maybe a little vulnerable, and that builds courage and happiness.
.
Don’t forget to share yourself writing, or maybe even the note itself (if you don’t mind us resharing) using #5minuteselfcaresquad and tagging us @aromasoy. .
In the next couple of days, we will send you your $10 store credit, as a thank you for participating.
.
The winner of our Pumpkin Spice and Crackling Firewood candles will be announced on Instagram on 10/15! .
If you’ve gotten value out of this challenge, and you haven’t already subscribed to our newsletter, would you consider doing so? We love you guys! Thank you for participating! 💕

It’s day 4 of the #5minuteselfcaresquad challenge! 😎
.
Congrats for making it this far, we are almost done! Are you enjoying the challenges so far? .
.
Challenge 4. ☕️
HOT BEVERAGE: In honor of fall, pick the hot beverage of your choice, make it, and slowly enjoy it. Herbal tea, coffee, hot chocolate, plant milk - whatever your like! Again, the key here is mindfulness and intention, so set that timer for 5 minutes! Think about what you are sipping and what it tastes like!
.
Share a pic of your drink using #5minuteselfcaresquad and don't forget to tag us @aromasoy, so that we know you're participating.

Day 3 of our #5minuteselfcaresquad challenge brings us the 4-7-8 Breathing Technique: 😌
.
Challenge 3:
BREATHE in through your nose for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7, and slooowly exhale through your mouth for 8 seconds. Again, set that time for 5 minutes, and just repeat as slowly and mindfully as you can! .
.
#5minuteselfcaresquad is the hashtag to share once you’ve done it and make sure you tag us @aromasoy. .
.
This is a breathing technique that will help you refocus and relax as you focus on your breath, no Advanced Yoga knowledge necessary! .
Who’s breathing with us?

It’s Day 2 of our #5minuteselfcaresquad challenge! ✨
.
Don’t forget to use the hashtag so we know you are doing this along with us!
.
Challenge 2:
Grab a piece of paper and writing utensil, set a timer for 5 minutes, and FREE WRITE. This means, let go of trying to have any structure to your writing and just write exactly whatever words come to mind. It may be sentences, or words, and if you’d like, you can just throw it out afterwards. Don’t feel pressure to have it be anything deep or profound!
.
The benefit of this is that it frees up your “monkey mind” the part of your brain that’s anxious and thinking about a million little things. Get it all out on paper and it will help free up that brain space! This is a great activity to do for even longer than 5 minutes if you are having an anxious day! .
For anyone that did it, did anything you write surprise you?

Our #5minuteselfcaresquad challenge starts today! 🙌🏻
.
Who has read their email yet? We will be posting the challenges here so that everyone can see, and those that are in the group will get their reminder!
We know how hard finding time for self-care is, and we are setting out to prove that it is not a luxury for people, with lots of time on their hands! .
.
Challenge 1: STRETCH - set a timer for 5 minutes, and working down from your neck, slowly stretch your muscles in the way that feels best. Do this in a quiet environment, thinking about only the stretching. .
.
The benefit is that we go through the motions in life, and it’s important to stop and become aware of your body and how it moves. It breaks you out from your normal routine, and makes you refocus.
Double tap if you love a good stretch!
.
Don't forget to tag us in your post or stories of you completing this challenge and use #5minuteselfcaresquad.
