The truth is, I was so not into cooking dinner last night (after a full on day of being in constant motion AND starting my period) so I gave myself the night off. That also meant that I had no leftovers to take for lunch for school today. I gave myself permission to try the new menu at North Drift Cafe instead. The Nourish Bowl did not disappoint. Added free range chicken ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I was a happy girl, it was so filling! Definitely deserved the name Nourish, because that's how I felt afterwards.

Winter is coming here in the north. The trees are bare. 5.25 pm and the sky was on fire as the sun disappears I headed home from an afternoon with friends. By the time I arrived home at 6pm, it was all but dark.
The dates of the seasonal changes are a bit different, with June 1st marking the beginning of winter (compare to North America where summer officially starts with the equinox towards the end of June). All the while, my friends & family are sharing and loving the fresh energy of spring. It's an interesting world of polarity we live in. It's not good or bad, just what goes around comes around.
I've been tuning in and paying more attention to the cyclical patterns that show up in my life, and becoming aware of their influence. The seasons, the moon, the menstrual cycle. All are so intertwined and completely amazing. I've been following @katenorthrup 's theory on this as well, and it just makes so much sense to me. The clarity has been powerful in helping me embrace exactly where I'm at in this moment.
Do you pay attention to the energy of any particular cycles? I'd love to hear your experiences.

How 'bout you?

Just had to share these goodies from Nature Body I've been using for the past month, and am completely in love ๐Ÿ˜
My shopping spree started with stainless steel straws during @kathleenventura's #earthdayiseveryday challenge. For $12, I couldn't go wrong.
While I was on the website, I thought 'if I'm ditching the plastic straw, might as well switch to the bamboo toothbrush too'. You'd pay $5 for a plastic one anyways, so why not invest in something better for the environment.
If I'm honest, I'd mostly given up on most deodorants ages ago because of all the aluminium, heavy metals, and ridiculous crap they put in them to stop you sweating. Not my jam, I often went without, and most of the time I didn't notice. I'd thought about making my own, but it was just one of those things that never happened. So I tried two different sample sizes of the Probiotic Deodorants. They came in a little cardboard stick - the Lemongrass is easily my favourite, but the Ylang Ylang is nice too.
And last, I got a pottle of magnesium body butter, because who doesn't need more Magnesium. I rub it on the soles of my feet before bed, as another measure for a deliciously restful sleep.
What was even cooler, was finding out that these are locally made, only an hour from my house. I love supporting small businesses.
Do you use any of these products? What are your favourite alternatives?

In the busy and over-whelming world we live in, there is a much needed place for more mindfulness.
That's why I'm spending today attending an up-skilling and training, to bring more techniques to my own practice, but to also bring more to my clients and the classroom. Oh how I would love to see these skills taught at school and integrated throughout our curriculum. We would all benefit!
How have you made time to be mindful today?

My gears are packed to go to Tempo tomorrow ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ I've got a meeting straight after school, so time management is key ๐Ÿ”‘ based on my previous habits, I know ive told myself 'I'll just shoot home and get my stuff - at lunch, after school, sometime' and then what do you know, the excuses set in and I don't go like I'd planned.
Too smart for those old tricks, I packed my clothes, shoes & drink bottle tonight. I'm throwing together some leftovers for lunch.
You know that saying 'Fail to plan, plan to fail'... well not this time. I'm good to go.

This afternoon's Self Care Sunday consists of crystal infused water, Nutritious Creme Masque while reading @daniellelaporte 's newest creation in the late autumn sun, while listening to the tide come in โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’— Making time to do things that nourish me & make me happy has become an essential part of my business plan, my health plan and my overall life plan. The more I focus on me feeling good, the better I can help others - my husband, my clients, my co-workers, my students & friends. This is what the #selfcaresociety is all about, supporting women to create a self care plan that fuels their mind, their body & spirit, relationships and beyond. It looks different for everyone - in fact it looks different for me, depending on the day! But the accountability is there to identify what it is you need to be doing to feel your best, so that you can give your best.

โ˜•๏ธ ๐ŸŽ‰ for โ˜๐Ÿผ Tea Party for One over here this morning โœจ

I'm currently in between coaching clients at the moment and felt it was totally appropriate to take a moment & let lose my inner child who used to LOVE playing tea parties, with an energising cuppa Rev3 tea - clean energy from white, green + black tea and ginseng, with added adaptogens from rhodiola root to support my everloving adrenals. No jitters or crash (or my brain going a mile a minute past midnight) like when I drink coffee.
Bringing a little more fun and play into my life is my focus today, as I prepare for a morning of supporting clients in their health and life. Doing little things for myself, as simple as making time to drink out of a pretty tea cup and tea pot is a simple way I walk my talk when it comes to self Care and serving others โœจ

Keen to try the Rev I rave about?
I've got a couple samples to share, all you need to do is send me a private message with your mailing address before 3pm NZ time today , and I'll pop it in the post this afternoon, while I'm in town ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ“ฎ๐Ÿ“ฌ๐Ÿ˜˜ #SelfCareSociety

I know this to be true.
Not much magically appears on your lap just because you want it. But if you're setting clear intentions, taking action in alignment with your goals and dreams, believing, being patient and enjoying the process, it comes.
I have many examples in my life, and many more that I'm still working on.
Don't lose sight, just make sure to surround yourself with a supportive tribe who will hold the vision with you, as you go for it.

๐Ÿ› What are you investing in? ๐Ÿ›
We all have expenses that must be paid. We also all make "extra" purchases to fulfill other needs or desires.
How much of your investments or your budget include your health, emotional well being, or self care? ๐Ÿ’œ
I often hear how people do not have money to commit to their wellness. This may be true, but I challenge you to take a closer look at where you spend money and then ask yourself if that is more important than how you feel.
To me, there is nothing more important than the health and well being of myself and my family. That will come before many other options where I could spend my money. I personally believe it is the ultimate investment and not an expense. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
Investing in myself and loved ones is my top priority. Supporting others in feeling their best is an incredibly rewarding job which I am blessed to pursue.
If you're feeling the pull to make some changes - or shift your investments - and commit to feeling your best, I'd be honored to support you. It's not always about the 'thing' you need to buy, but the mindset that goes with it that makes the world of difference. If you could fix your mindset yourself, wouldn't you have done it already? I've invested in some top notch mentors who have made a world of difference in the way I think, which has in turn changed everything in my world and the way I experience it. The return has been something I truly value.
Let's book a quick 10 minute discovery call to chat about your goals and how I can best help! โœจ ๐Ÿ’— ๐Ÿ˜˜
