  S L O W L I V I N G 🌱 healthy habits for conquering Hashimotos 🌱 practising daily self care 🌱 ritualised beauty therapy 🌱 approaching life mindfully

Sometimes I wish I lived where no one would have an opinion and I could do all the wacky stuff I want to do 🤣 I feel like we live in a particular area and then we must behave a certain way to fit in. It’s tiring. I guess changing up attitudes is what can change everything and not worrying what others think is probably a good place to start and gets you closer to the version of the person you want to be 💫

I’m mean seriously. These kids are so indulged. This is me giving Miss 6 a massage! 🙃

Looks good enough to eat! Finally made my own body moisturiser. So simple - just shea butter, fractionated coconut oil and some essential oils. Thanks for the inspiration @biomestores 👌🏻

Because I like featuring old men on my page 🤣 but seriously, ‘Disrupt yourself or die trying’ by Ellis Watson is a definite watch! One of the best TED talks ever! It’s about the power of doing something different. I highly recommend you spend the 15 minutes watching it 💫

I’ve never made my own stock before! #proudmoment I’m embarrassed to say how easy it was and that I’d normally just have thrown the carcass away 🙈 Tomorrow has split pea soup on the menu so I can put it to use then 🎉

I love the @northeystorganicmarket Such a pleasant way to spend a Sunday morning. It’s jam packed with inspiration, education, community and good vibes. This place makes me want to be a better human being! The kids have been busy playing and making with clay. It’s all natural, no dyes or paints and there’s a clever fellow helping the kids and showing them how art can be created using the simplest things .

How simple is this idea?! Try hanging a bunch of eucalyptus from your shower head and the heat from the water will create a beautiful fragrant steam. It will work wonders for clear breathing and relaxation. Pic via Pinterest .

I’ve found the swap over to low tox skincare really exciting. It’s actually been very refreshing to ignore the big brands and their constant assault on every billboard, bus stop and bad magazine
::
As you may have read, it takes 26 seconds for skincare products to reach our bloodstream and although this is only in small doses, our bodies are not equipped to deal with the excess amount of toxins we are now exposed to (from our skincare, to cleaning products, to pesticides on our food) For someone like me with Hashimotos, it adds an extra, unnecessary load

This Face Hero Oil by @gotoskincare is so good. With the drying weather we’ve had, it’s been such a lifesaver. It’s smells divine and feels as luxurious as any serum/oil I’ve used in the past. Anyone else have a favourite? .

I learnt something recently that piqued my interest and helped me understand better who I am as a woman. It has to do with the moon. You might think this is a bit witchy but the moon is a very powerful thing, steeped in mysticism but also very pertinent in today’s world. After all, she governs our vast oceans and controls the tides, emptying and filling every waterway on our planet.

During the moon cycle, there is constant change. In fact, the moon changes her face about every three days ... sound like someone you know?! While men are like the sun - constant and predictable day in and day out - rising in the east and setting in the west, women are like the moon. We wax and wane, ebb and flow. We change constantly but always return to centre, to wholeness.
Being inherently intuitive and sensitive beings means we can feel very different from day to day. Just know these moments will pass, usually within 72 hours. With this new understanding, cut yourself some slack and ride the high and low tides knowing neither will last forever. .
